I'm having a miscarriage. I am/was six weeks along.
Went to bed last night with very light brown spotting. I was mildly alarmed, but decided to sleep on it and re-assess in the morning. I woke up this morning with red blood in my underwear. It was spotty, but very alarming as it was bright red and contained small clots. Still, I tried my best not to panic. I called my doc at 7:00am, and was told to monitor my symptoms. I decided to trust my gut and went to the ER. Long story short, my bleeding increased a lot, my HCG levels were the same they were over a week ago, and my uterus was empty.
My husband and I always knew the risk of mc was great, and that they are normal, but this hurts so bad because this was the first time we conceived in 10 years of marriage. To us, this pregnancy was our holiday miracle. And now it's gone :( The worst part though, is that my sister-in-law is giving birth to their second baby tomorrow morning. Such heartbreaking irony.
I wish you all healthy and joyous pregnancy.
