I haven't had a period since April 1st, 2012 which is pretty weird for me because I usually have my periods every month at the beginning. I had been taking pregnancy tests religiously twice a week until recently when I finally got fed up enough to call the doctor and have them do a hCG blood test. This was this last Friday, and the results came back at an 8. I was told to basically be on bed rest because I was having cramps in my back and in my abdomen and the nurse said that if the cramping continued into Saturday to go into Urgent Care to get checked out. Following the nurses orders, I did so the next day. The family practice MD did a pelvic exam and said that my cervix was closed and sent me off to ultrasound to make sure I wasn't having an eptopic pregnancy and to make sure everything looked okay even though it could be too early and they possibly wouldn't see anything. It ended up being the case, nothing and the radiologist said everything looked good and that from what he could see my uterus looked empty. Throughout all of this I'm still lightly spotting (Not a lot, just enough to make the TP turn color) The doctor told me to continue on resting and to come back this morning for another hCG test. When I woke up this morning I was actually bleeding this time, not spotting and the color was like a royal bright-ish red. No clots or anything. I went and picked my boyfriend up from work and used his bathroom there, same thing, no clots or anything. We came home and following what the nurse had told me this morning that if I am filling up a large-maxi pad a couple times an hour to go to the doctor. I'm not doing so but when we got home I went to the bathroom again (feeling like I needed to go number 2, but just kept going number 1) when I got off the toilet there were large and extra large clots, next to one of the bigger clots there was a small yellowish-brown sac like thing and it was about the size of a lima bean. Since passing whatever it was my back cramps and abdominal cramps have gone away and I'm feeling pretty emotional even though I didn't "know" I was pregnant so I didn't have time to get attached to anything. I'm still bleeding and the advice nurse says that from what it sounds like me describing that it was a miscarriage and explained everything that could possibly happen over the next 24 hours and that a nurse from OBGYN will call me in the morning.
Has anyone gone through this or similar to this?
Thanks for any input that you put in. =/
