Very tough weekend for us.
Saturday afternoon I started bleeding and passing large clots. I lost so much blood that I was nearly passing out. Finally at 1am Sunday I knew things were really bad when I started almost blacking out. DH took me to ER where my blood pressure was down to 70/45 and hemoglobin dropped to 7.
I was transferred by ambulance to a bigger hospital where my OB practices. There was no gestational sac by the time I had an ultrasound so there may or may not have been a baby at all. They are chalking it up to blighted ovum. I finally had a D&C completely knocked out (thankfully) about 10am and was released by noon.
I am feeling overwhelmingly grateful to be alive. I thankfully didn't need a blood transfusion either.
I wish all of you wonderful ladies success in your pregnancies and beyond! Given my ripe old age of 43, I need to be done. Still coming to terms with that!
Lots of love,
