I tried reading through a few of these but its so hard hearing everyone’s stories. I will share mine I hope it might help someone else.
I became pregnant on our first month trying, everything was going fine and I went into my 8 week appointment. We saw the heartbeat and everything was normal.
After that appointment I started spotting so I read everything on the internet and called my Dr, they told me to keep an eye on it and come in if it got worse. It did get worse so I went in on 8wk 3d for blood work to check what blood type I was, as that might make a difference?
The next day, 8w4d it was worse so I went in for another ultra sound.
I was diagnosed with a subchorionic clot and was told a lot of women get these and it will bleed until the clot passes, but nothing to worry about.
9wk 3d I woke up to the most painful cramping I have ever experienced, it felt like I might have to go to the bathroom so I sat there until I felt that I was going to pass out. I laid in bed, that didn’t help so I went back into the bathroom where I passed what I thought was the clot.
I was so sure the first day that I saw bleeding that I was miscarrying, when I went back and they told me it was a clot and statistically there was like a “3%” chance people miscarry in their ninth week I thought I was in the clear. I just really thought that it would never happen to me.
The next day I called my doctor and said I think I passed the clot but wasn’t sure if I should come in. When they did the ultrasound and nothing was on the screen I just went numb. Looking back, I woke up that day feeling great, no pregnancy sympotms and no cramping, no bleeding.
My husband didn’t come with me to the appt, I was like it’s just the clot everything is fine and then I was there alone and it was just the worst.
We just started trying again this month, about 4 cycles after and I can’t help but worry constantly. I actually think boards like these and others on facebook that I joined did more harm than good for my anxiety so I am going to try to take it easy this time.
