I miscarried today... 😣

So after the most stressful week of my whole life, this morning everything came to a head, & I miscarried at 5w 3d.

I woke around 6:30am feeling a little weird. Last night I had a few mild cramps, & a little light bleeding, but I didn’t think anything of it as I’ve been told it’s all normal.

I’d been seeing signs of brown discharge since my trip to the hospital on Sunday, but it wasn’t overly bad. I had a little light pink implantation bleeding on Monday night, but then this morning, my knickers were soaking. I had to wipe myself three times to clean up the blood. An hour later & there was heavy bleeding with clots.

I spoke to 111 & they told me to call my doctors as soon as they opened. I saw them at 10:45, & was told I was likely having a miscarriage.

By the time I got there, my pains were like very severe period pains. I usually suffer with bad period pains, & I was meant to be having a scan last Sunday to determine if I have Endometriosis.

My doctor said that it’s likely there was extra tissue around the wall of my womb, & when the embryo tried to attach itself (the pink spotting I had on Monday), it was unable to due to the extra tissue, causing me to miscarry.

If it doesn’t turn out to be Endometriosis, then it could just mean the embryo wasn’t strong enough & my body rejected it. I’ve got to wait 7-10 days to take another test, & if it comes back positive, whether I’m bleeding or not, I have to call my doctor so they can send me for a scan to see what’s going on.

I’ve been told to get lots of rest & that if the pain gets so bad I can’t breath, or I’m changing my pad more than once an hour, I have to call 999 as I could be haemorrhaging. But she said this is normal, & it will pass.

Miscarriages are very common. 1 in 4 women miscarry, & there are a lot of factors to take into place. The fact I’m 36, that I was taking codeine right up until my missed period, & I was also on the pill... all of this could have been the reason I miscarried.

I’m ok, I’m just in a lot of pain atm, & maybe a little confused & shocked. I’m sure I’ll do a lot of crying over the next few days, but my bf & family are being really supportive, so I’m sure I’ll be fine.

What a way to end such a bad year 😒

I’m so sorry this happened to you. Please be kind to yourself and take it easy.
You’re right that a lot of women miscarry, please don’t blame yourself though - there was very likely nothing you could have done to prevent this. flowers
