Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

That was embarrassing :( *TMI*

My post partum visit was today. I opted for Mirena for birth control. My appointment was 1:45. I sat in the waiting room until 3:00. They took my blood pressure, asked me 50 million questions, and had me pee in a cup. At 3:25 they had me undress from the waist down and sit and wait.

I started my period yesterday, which isn't normally a big deal. But OMG. This time it's SUPER heavy. Plus my allergies are acting up......AND I was sitting there like that until 4:45!!

I was sitting there with a blue sheet over me, and my legs closed. I started sneezing, sneezed 6 times in a row. With the last sneeze, I noticed an orangish spot on the sheet. I lifed it up and where my legs are closed...I've gushed blood and it's puddled up on my thighs. There's no way for me to get across the room to get cleaned up without dripping blood in the floor.

When I finally felt comfortable enough to get up, my OB comes in the room. Not only is it just him and his nurse, but there were students with him too.

I apologized for my bloody appearance. He laughed and had me put my feet up and spread my legs open....and I sneezed, so that brings another gush of blood. He said "OMG! I didn't believe you when you said it was REALLY heavy. I thought you were just being dramatic. Hopefull the Mirena will slow it down some."

He put the Mirena in and him and the students walked out, and I got the nurse to hand me some of those little toweletts you clean yourself with before peeing in a cup and a pad. She left and I cleaned myself up and walked out.  :(

I had something simalar to that happen during my post partum check up except i was more sad then embarrassed. I was having my 2 or 4 week follow-up(i had a c-section) and the dr had me completely undress and wear a gown. i ebf my son and was pumping and nursing. Well baby was asleep the entire appointment. he would wake up crying which would trigger me to drop but i had bottles i pumped for him. By the time the dr came in a hour or so later my gown was soaked from my milk leaking! i was upset it went to waste!

It would have been WAY different if the appointment went as fast as it would normally. I'm usually in and out of there and that's that. But sitting there with nothing to stop the bleeding for an hour was just too much.

Oh my God I am so sorry :( I am so private about those things... I would not have gone if I was having my period, I just could not do that.... BIG *hugs* And if it were me I could never see that ob again... never.

I would have rescheduled my appointment until I was off my period.

Aww, I am sorry!  They usually want you to be on your period.  About 5 years ago they did when I got mine.

If the Mirena doesn't work.....ask for Lysteda.  I have been on it for 6 months, and it works wonders.  I no longer worry about leaks.

There's a permission signed and in my chart, but he does normally warn me.

And no, it's not normal to wait that long here either. But TWICE (once in the waiting room, and once right after I sent my sample to the lab) I heard the call bell dinging and nurses yelling....then sirens. That means they sent two patients to the hospital while I was there :X
