Just miscarried!(4 Posts)
Hi everyone. So to cut a long story short, found out I had a blighted ovum at 6 weeks now at 10.5 weeks I have finally miscarried. After getting over the emotional pain eventually I never imagined how horrific the physical side would be! Honestly couldn't speak through the pain, considered ringing ambulance and taking morphine!
Ended up in the bath for over an hour which was the only thing that eased the horrendous cramps when I eventually passed an egg sized clot - even though nurse had told me I'd easily miscarry naturally as I only had a 12mm sac to pass, therefore I wasn't expecting this pain. Along with smaller clots and a bath full of red water my mum wanted to ring an ambulance which I didn't want as I knew there was nothing they could do except pain relief but physically couldn't get out the bath! After clots passed pain started to subside now sat in bed with bearable cramps which are a lot further apart now. Full of relief after knowing this has been inevitable for over a month. Wondering why I wasn't offered d&c or any other help. Also spent all day at walk in centre/speaking to epau & doctors feeling like no one offered any help. Any tips on recovering or what to expect next? Obviously me & partner devastated but I believe everything happens for a reason & thankful there was no actual baby there too.

Thankyou! So sorry for yours too. Hardest thing I've ever been through physically & mentally! Good advice about oh as I tend to forget he's going through it all too! Think I'll rest up and take a couple of shifts off work and get my body back to feeling ok! X
So sorry for you. I went through similar 4 weeks ago and it was traumatic. Don't bottle up your feelings, let it all out and face a good cry with your hubby. Your hormones might also make you feel pants for a few weeks... Good news is that you will come to terms with all of this, and feel positive again with time. Look after yourself and order 'It all starts with the egg' on Amazon - by eating the right foods, taking supplements and reducing chemical exposure you can significantly improve the quality of your eggs in just 3 months, ready to try again. There's a few threads about it in here if you take a look. Xx
