Miscarriage

Cheryl in Wyoming

Date: Wed, 18 Nov 1998

In July of this year I found out I was pregnant. It was a surprise, but it did not take long for me to enjoy the idea of baby number three. This was to be our tie breaker as we have a girl and a boy already. One week after the pregnancy test was taken, I miscarried. I was shocked and devastated. Got the usual "it's for the best" comments from well meaning people. I was unsure about trying again, but to my surprise in October I found out I was pregnant again. I had many concerns because I got pregnant so close to the time I miscarried. I had spotted a little around the time I should have had my period, called the doctor who knew of the previous miscarriage, was told it was normal to spot around the time of a period was normally to happen and could be the egg implanting in the uterus.

I went in for my first prenatal visit. I had been terribly nauseated, my breasts hurt and just felt pregnant. This visit was supposed to confirm the pregnancy and assure me that everything was going fine. I did not have any trouble after the spotting. The doctor did the pelvic exam and said the uterus felt like a normal 10 week size, but would do a vaginal ultrasound just to check everything out. What happened next was total shock. She showed us the uterus, but there was nothing in it. At some point the fertilized egg passed and my body kept going on as if it was still nurturing a growing baby. She told me I should pass everything within a couple of weeks and I did just this last Friday. I am hoping that now that I do have some closure that I can begin to move on and heal. I wanted to share this as I had never heard of a miscarriage such as mine where the uterus continued to grow without the baby.
