miscarriage after mirena- long, sorry :/
a little back ground- i had my second child in september 07' and 5 months later had mirena placed. it worked out great at first, extremely light periods, no remembering a pill or anything. i had it in for about 4 1/2 years and towards the end i had severe pain and loads of side effects. removed on nov. 12, 2012 and was told i could get pregnant right away.. i didn't think that was a good idea so we waited until the end of january to ttc. february 7th i got my bfp and we were sooooo happy. everything was ok at first. heartburn, intense waves of nausea, giant achy breasts, everything that i had experienced with my two previous pregnancies. maybe 7 weeks in i realized i rarely felt sick and talked to my ob about it, she assured me all was well and not every pregnancy is the same. she sent me for a transvaginal u/s to ease my mind. at 9w2d i went to my appointment and discovered that baby was measuring 6w2d with an enlarged yolk sac & slow heart rate.
i was scheduled for a repeat u/s a week later to see if there was any growth or demise. on 3-21-13 we discovered that baby was still measuring 6w2d and there was no heartbeat. d&c on 3.23.12. i did notice that while i was pregnant my uterus seemed to feel tight, almost like it was trying to expand and couldn't- kind of like light pressure. i have read that enlarged yolk sac usually means chromosomal abnormalities, but part of me wonders if i had scar tissue and maybe the placenta couldn't grow like it should have and maybe that's why i had a large yolk sac? i'm just curious if anyone knows or has experienced anything like this. very sorry this is so long and i'm horrible at punctuation :/ rest in peace baby Max 3.21.13
