I don't know what they mean... *warning: miscarriage*

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I had a miscarriage. I am taking the medicine to help it pass since it was not passing on its own. Doc said if I soak a pad in an hour to go to the ER. But what is soaked? Does that mean dripping with blood? Or just full? I had 2 pads, 2 seperate hours that were full. There were still some bare spots (like at the front and back). Help?

What is happening is definetly considered going through one pad an hour. Youre not wearing the thin pads though are you? They mean the thick regular ones, not the super thin ones. 

Im sorry for your loss!!

That's not ok. I was told if you have to change it every hour, and and its full then go in. I am also sorry for your loss. I went in at 5wks and only saw a sack, then at 10wks and saw a 6wk old fetus. Since so long passed and I was working full time, going to school part time, and didn't want it to happen while I was out and about so I opted for the d&c.

I called before posting this. When asked what soaked is nurse said just soaked




Quoting kris0921:

As for your question go in or call.






Quoting kris0921:

Just curious did he offer to do a d&c? I had one because baby didn't pass on its own and it had been over 4wks.

As long as you don't feel faint or dizzy, don't worry.

Maybe you should call your doctor and ask, or ask a nurse in the office.

I'm so sorry :(

I took the medicine too when mine didn't start. I didn't want a D&C. If your aren't using the super thick overnight pads you are probably ok. Once the sac passes it should slow down. Take care.

I wasn't told to use thick pads. Or i missed it (you know that always possible). I thought i was using "normal" but just checked. Ultra thin. Now i feel a little better. I also change it a lot because it feels gross. And just caught on to something. I have been standing a lot more today then yesterday or monday. It fills considerably faster when i stand.

Yeah the ultra thin doesnt count! I cant even wear them after my second child because I fill them too fast. 

You should rest mama!
