Last night I felt I sharp stabbing pain that lasted less then a second I'm guessing and felt an odd pop at the same time. I think this was the placenta detaching. I've been leaking a lot of fluid the last few days so I don't think the pop was the sack breaking since I'm pretty sure its been leaking. Anyway, right after that the bad cramping started and lasted 3-4 hours. This morning I woke up in zero pain and I've had some minor cramping this morning, bleeding is like a normal period, no heavy bleeding like I expected (I've had periods heavier then this). Haven't seen any clots or what I consider clots, just globs of uterine tissue that flatten out in the toilet. That could be clots, I dunno, I've never had them but I picture clots as more solid, I've also been on aspirin therapy for months so I doubt I'll see any. I've seen little *threads* of white/silver tissue so I assume the baby completely broke down rather then coming out in tact even though it looked intact on the u/s on Wed. Its been dead for 4 weeks so I would think the decay would be extensive (seeing the baby actually has me a little freaked out do to family stories of my grandmother who lost a twin several weeks before birth and was pretty graphic about the condition of the body) Anyway, I'm sure I saw a strip of the placenta come out, it was very thick and stretchy/rubbery and actually had to be pulled out which wasn't my intention, I didn't realize how long it was and wanted to get off the throne. Other then that not much going on. Very little cramping, nothing more then normal AF cramping. I'm wishing I could get an u/s to make sure things are gone, my fear is to be out an about and suddenly feel a 1" fetus at my crotch and not be able to do anything about it for a while. Can I assume the worst is over? I still want to go to San Diego but I don't feel like driving 4-6 hours right now due to lack of sleep. Went to bed late and dd woke me up at the crack of dawn. Shame too, I actually found a dress/shawl that looks really good on me for the wedding and now I have no place to wear it! oh well, don't care to see family right now anyway, they can be overbearingly sympathetic and I just want to be left alone.
