I apologize in advance for posting this in birth rather then loss but this is a surviving labor question and most people don't go though this level of physical hell during an early loss.
I've been going though a m/c from hell for almost 2 weeks now. I thought maybe I was off the hook finally because its been a couple days with just bleeding and while the cramps were strong I felt no pain thanks to drugs. I've gone though full labor 3times so far because my uterus keeps filling up with blood clots and I cant get anyone to do aD&C because I show no signs of infection and they see no fetal remains on u/s, just huge blood clots. Anyway, tonight the cramps are getting intense again and they seem to get worse with each episode. I've already taken the max amount of drugs available to me at home (500mg Naproxen, Vicadin & extra strength Tylenol but that was for the headache I've had for several hours). Last time they ended up giving me a vicadin then 3 shots of Demerol in an hour which dimmed the pain and knocked me out (at that point I didn't care! I'd never felt so much pain my life! I litterally felt like someone was cutting into me with a hot knife) Anyway, I should have asked earlier but HOW do I get through the pain without screaming (and waking up dd)? I know about warm baths, going to burn a CD of a song that tends to draw you into the music in almost a trance state and set it for repeat. I've also had back labor everytime. The pain starts in the uterus, spreads around my hips to my back. (I thought back labor was caused by a baby in a bad position?!) Right now the contrax are about 3 min apart and lasting about 30 seconds and I'm starting to feel nausea starting a little bit which tells me I've got about 2 hours left and that's when things get rough. Right now there more bearable then last time but I think that's because I took drugs as soon as I realized the contrax were regular and starting to hurt. I doubt anyone will be able to answer me tonight since its like 1am but I figure I can always use the advice for the next time! oh yeah, can someone please explain to me why the heck I have to pee so much when this happens? I'm not talking a little tinkle but I drank a 32oz big gulp an hour ago kinda pee!
