Hi mamas,<br><br>
I'm in the proactive stage, I guess. I know I can't really find out why I lost this baby, but I want to see if there's a correlation with something that happened to me...<br><br>
First, I had a really, really bad bout of stomach flu when I was 5 weeks (m/ced at 9). A few days before being exposed, I started morning sickness pretty strong (as it typical for me). After the bug passed, my morning sickness was gone. Now, I'm wondering if this was the cause of my m/c. Have y'all heard of this happening? I also starting using a doppler at 7 weeks and never got a HB and I typically get them really early, so I'm assuming baby died really early.<br><br>
Also, I have no history of high BP. It's usually around 120/70; however, with this pregnancy, it went sky high. I didn't have it taken until a few days after I <span style="text-decoration:underline;">thought</span> the m/c was finished and was calm at that point and it was 129/97 (taken before passing placenta). It didn't actually end until I passed the placenta on Tues evening. Here's the trend...<br><br>
Tues 130/97 (finally passed placenta in eve 4 days after m/c),<br>
Wed 140/90<br>
Thurs 125/75<br>
Today 100/68<br><br>
I really don't have any choice but to equate this rise with pregnancy, as it was normal before I got pregnant and the downward trend as my HCG is dropping is all too coincidental. My DH thinks that maybe my body was reacting to this pregnancy being abnormal (we're thinking baby never developed or developed and was absorbed early on, as we never found him/her). I don't know if that's possible. Has that ever happened to any of you or people you know?<br><br>
I'd really like to get to the bottom of this, since I obviously don't want to repeat HBP that early in pregnancy and if the flu had anything to do with it, I need to be very careful next go around.
