Had my 6 week check today, and I'm still bleeding/gushing. At first she was thinking I was doing too much, too soon, but, it has been six weeks - my uterus is normal size, not tender, no signs of infection etc...And suddenly, I gushed while there, and she got to see what is happening a couple times a day. She sent me for an ultrasound right away in the other office, and she said she'd call me tomorrow.
After my u/s I got dressed and went to grab H from one of the rn's who was giving him love while I was in there, but another mw met me outside the room and told me my mw was on the phone. Great, I thought.
My lining is thick and there is also some debris within the uterus. I did loose a twin at the beginning of this pregnancy, and I think we all assume my body would absorb it as I never passed it to my knowledge, all though it is possible I did and didn't know it (but having 2 other m/c's, it did just feel different). Even now, I really feel that something was just different about when this baby's heart stopped. I know that I had another baby in there, but I never loss the sense of it being inside me (does that make any sense??)
I really don't think that this is placenta pieces as it was checked and double checked. I remember we talked along time after the birth about the placenta.
So I'm going on Methergine for 2 days, and hopefully that will clear everything and stop the bleeding. Then another u/s to see the results.
I knew something was wrong for about a month now, but, I really just kept putting it off figuring it would either stop on its own by now. And then I just got used to it
So, probably my fault for not pursuing the issue way back...
