3:40pm – Took dose of 4 200 mcg Misoprostol
4:06pm – Took 3 200mg advil
8:26pm – Stared having mild cramps and a little heavier flow.
8:30pm – took one pain pill (Tramadol)
9:19pm – Cramping increasing and decided to take one more pain pill
9:54 – Contraction type cramping every minute and a half
11:16 – Contractions further apart at 2 and a half mins, much stronger and some back pain as well. Rockin hips helps a little, not supposed to have any more pain meds for another three hours!!! Yikes think I will def switch to hydrocodone!
11:44 – lots of back pain, ran to the bathroom and threw up, afterwards sat on the toilet and felt as though I pee’d blood.
12:23- felt a gush of blood and ran to the bathroom, passed a large clot before I could get there and bled thru my pad, got in the shower and passed several clots the biggest being about the size of the palm of my hand. Stood in the shower but started to get dizzy, dried off and managed to get clean underwear on but was def on the verge of passing out, woke my DH to help me get to the couch to lay down, cramping is much better at the moment.
12:36 -should have bought those depends…… Another rush to the bathroom (it’s too far from the couch) More bleeding and more clots. Just doubled up with two pads, drank some water and I am no longer feeling faint, I think the heat from the shower played a part in that. I have continued taking my prenatals in hopes that my iron wouldn’t get too low.
1:29- fell asleep only to be woke by an over flow of bleeding. Soaked thru both pads and on to the bed protector pad (thank goodness I did buy those or my couch would be in trouble)
Wrapped the protector pad around myself and waddled to the bathroom, sat on the toilet an passed several more smaller clots. Cramping is still slight.
Not feeling faint but I am weak,
Very thirsty too trying to get some fluids in me so I don’t get dehydrated.
Maybe I can get a little more sleep.
1:52- could feel leaking beginning so I hurriedly went to the bathroom but it is impossible to hold it in and I ended up ruining yet another pair of undies… Again wishing I had some depends! Jumped back in the shower but kept in mind not to stay in very long, got out only to be immediately in need of another shower, (lots of Clorox wipes being used tonight, as it looks like a crime scene at times) back in the shower and then sacrificed a towel to help me make it from the shower to toilet so I could manage to get pads laid into another pair of undies. Now back on the couch and feel ok, still very thirsty, got some Gatorade, and may need to drink some of the apple juice I got just for tonight! Being somewhat prepared has def made all of this a lot easier, as well as it being in the middle of the night, my children stayed the night with my momma, thank God! They would have been scared to death if they had to witness any of this, especially DH helping me walk back to the living room when I was near fainting with nothing on but some undies! I am also glad DH is here but asleep, for I feel all of this would be hard for him to watch as well.
Overall I am doing good, I thought this would be hard emotionally but I think the wait made this some what a relief.
2:18- back to the bathroom, this time I was able to make it without ruining my clothing! Felling a bit faint again.. Feel as if I may have to make up a temp sleeping pallet in the bathroom next time
2:28- managed to eat KIND fruit and nut bar and made sure to drink more
7:18am Friday morning – managed to get a little sleep, on and off, still weak this morning so I made me a cup of coffee and got some breakfast. Also going to take a prenatal, that should help! Cramping is slight and bleeding is def much less, but I do not think I have passed the sac or the baby.. Just a lot of blood clots, plan to call the dr when they open and check in with them.
10:30 – three Advil for headache
my bleeding continued to be very light, which I thought was kindof odd, but I made sure to eat well and get lots of fluids to help my body recoup. Slept on and off all day, since I did not get much sleep the night before, and then about 6:00pm my momma and I went and watched one of the kiddos baseball practice, I felt good.
UNTILL about 10:15pm I went to the bathroom and realized I had a large piece of tissue or a clot trying to pass… I tried to push it out and it was def not going anywhere. Admittedly this is where I became an emotional wreak… crying, sobbing and trying to get the mass to pass as I sit in the bathroom, got in the shower and tried squatting, but nothing seemed to help, back to the toilet. My poor DH hearing my sobs checks on me and asks if he should call someone, I turn him away but later call my mother who insists on coming over. Tried to pull myself together and to try and think of something that will help my body pass the mass. So I manage to get some undies on and I go outside and pace the front yard, back and forth, crying and sobbing. It was still so hot outside and I could feel the heat getting to me so I went back inside to use my elliptical. That only lasted a few minutes, because then I was just completely exhausted. So back to the couch I go to lay down. Finally I was a bit calmed down though and I managed to call my momma and ask her to stop on the way and buy me some depends…. Knowing that when I finally did get the mass to pass I would probably have more heavy bleeding.
11:28pm – Made a call to my Dr. office and spoke to the oncall nurse. I requested another dose of the Misoprotol and informed her of what had been going on. She said she would get ahold of the Dr. on call and I would hear from her first thing tomorrow.
A piece of the mass broke off and that made me more comfortable.
Saturday morning 8:26am- On call nurse called me back and informed me that the oncall dr would not prescribe me another dose. L boo…. Asked me a bunch of questions and recommended that I follow up with my dr on Monday, I then informed her that my bleeding was very light and I believed that was the case because the mass is basically blocking my cervix… so then she recommends I go to the ER… double boo!!!
I had a terrible headache so I took some advil, drank a cup of coffee and jumped in the shower. Felt much better and called a friend of mine that is a nurse. Talked over everything with her and she confirmed what I had been feeling, that the on-call nurse is likely to tell you to go to the ER cause they can’t see you and do not know all that is going on. So I have decided to stay home and relax and see if my body will do anymore on its own. If I start running any fever or have any signs of infection I will go to the ER. If nothing changes by tomorrow morning I plan to go ahead and go to the ER to see if the on-call OB will prescribe another dose of Misoproatol, after they see that physically I am doing good. I do not want a D & C and fell that they should respect my wishes and allow me to exhausts other possibilities.
