New here! My story!!
Hello everyone, Im new here as the title says. Im hoping to get support from others that know what I am going through. Here is my story:
In February I found out yet again I was pregnant (its the third pregnancy, one full term and one miscarriage). Talked to a lot of people and found a good high risk doctor, so I thought. Went in at 6 weeks, saw the heartbeat. He assured me that once you see it then chance of miscarriage drops. Then went in twice after that, got to hear the heartbeat. My last apt with him was 5/3/2012, I asked about any further testing and so forth and he wasnt intrested in doing any as I passed the first trimester. Later that night I lost my mucus plug, called and he said not to worry it will regenerate its self and its no problem. Of course I believed him. The next night (friday) I started getting a lot of pressure and back pain that was constant, called again, he said it was just the streatching of the uterus as baby was growing and trying to move out of pelvic area. So he said that on monday to call and get an apt to come in to get checked. On sunday morning, I was laying down and all of a sudden felt a gush of fluid, got up went to the bathroom to check and it was mixed with blood. Instead of calling this time I went to ER. Upon arriving there the back pain and pressure started again. Baby had a heartbeat, so they took their time on checking me. After a while they came back and I was dialated to 3 and they could feel the baby's little feet and umbilical cord. Ultrasound showed that there was no fluid around the baby. There was nothing they could do. I was brought to delivery where I was informed that I had to labor until baby was born. 8 hours later still dialated to 3, a perfect and super tiny little baby was born. I knew it was to early for it to survive, thankful that it didnt have a heartbeat when born, I dont think I could have watched it die. I was able to hold and see it, and got some great pictures. About 2 hours later the placenta came. Since this is my second miscarriage they are going to do testing to find out why and if it was a boy or girl. I left the hospital 3 hours later.
I just cant help but feel cheated! My doctor was suppose to be high risk and everyone told me he was good. Since I went in at high risk from previous pregnancies, I figured he would have done further testing and NT Scan and so forth. I had a five minute ultrasound at 6 weeks just to get a for sure due date and see heartbeat, and the next 2 apt only lasted maybe 20 minutes long enough to hear heartbeat and wait on UA results. He shouldnt have told me that everything was normal when I called, he should of had me go in for a check. I cant really blame him 100%, but I cant not blame him either. I feel as if I did something wrong, it is after all my second miscarriage in a row.
Sorry so long! Thanks for listening.
