Ladies, I am so dang frustrated with this whole miscarrying thing. It’s bad enough that it has to happen at all, but my body doesn’t seem to know if it wants to go through with it or not.
I had some light bleeding over the weekend, only once did I have a lot on a panty liner and then it went away again. Sunday night, I finally started getting some contraction type cramping so I thought, “Here we go”. Texted all my daycare parents to let them know I was taking Monday off and took some ibprofren. Fell asleep and everything just went away. I had some slight cramping yesterday morning, but otherwise, totally wasted a day off because I was fine the rest of the day.
I can’t keep taking days off and then having nothing happen so I texted all the parents last night and said I’d be open today unless I was in excruciating pain my this morning. I hate not being able to give them a better heads up to arrange things on their end. Then, about 9pm last night the contraction like cramps started in again lasting a lot longer and definitely more severe in pain. I also had more bleeding yesterday with some clots on the toilet paper but still not soaking any pads or anything. In fact, most of the day I just had a panty liner on. Took tylenol and sometime after 10pm, it settled down enough for me to fall asleep and now again today, not much of anything.
I left a message for my favorite nurse to see if this is normal. Hopefully she will call back soon. Does anyone else have experience with just letting this happen naturally? How did it go for you? I haven’t seen any grey tissue like they said I would see’, but I am a little nervous because it turns out I’m RH negative and need to have a shot within 72 hours of miscarrying. I just wish my body would take care of this so I can start recovering from this whole thing. I feel like the grieving process isn’t even really going to start until I go through the physical miscarriage.
Anyways, if anyone has any advice for me on this whole thing, I will take it!
Lots of Love~Dawn
