Hi mamas. Just wanted to share my latest adventure. DH and I were going to his work to show his coworkers the baby on Monday afternoon. I was sitting in the back seat with the baby and ended up gushing blood
: I called my MW and she wasn't too concerned and told me to go home and monitor it. We got to the parking lot of our apartment and it wasnt' letting up so I told DH to just take me to the hospital.
Went to the closest emergency room, and I had to wait even though I was bleeding all over the place and all over their wheel chair. After getting admitted I passed a clot the size of a tennis ball, yuck. They did an US and found clots in my uterus. The Dr. and on call OB wanted me to do a D&C there but gave us the option of transfering to the hospital I delivered at and have the OB that delivered DS take over my care. We thought that would be best so off in the ambulance I went.
He didn't go straight for the D&C, he first offered to put me on a low dosage of pitocin, so I could work the clots out, and it worked for one. They did another US, but there were still more,
: But the rest were too big to pass. So off to surgery I went. It ended up not being so bad because they gave me a Spinal instead of putting me under. Apart from why I was there it was a good hospital visit. The nurses were nice. After surgery I was supposed to go into recovery for about an hour and a half (where DH & DS would not be able to see me) but after the surgery my nurse asked if I could recover in my room, and they said that was fine
So now hopefully all is better...
But in better news...DS had his first Halloween
