hi, 3 weeks ago i had a misscariage at 9 weeks pregnant. i had spotting for 2 days but didnt think anything of it because id had spotting with DD, then the 3rd morning i woke up and i had a small clot about the size of a golf ball or a bit smaller. i had a shower and when i got out i looked down and there was blood running down my legs and onto the floor. i jumped back into the shower and washed it off and after a minute it slowed down. i called my aunt to ask her to take me to the hospital and to see if she would look after my DD (age 22 months) i put a towel down on the car seat and she took me over, as i got out of the car i felt a gush of blood and the towel had blood on it aswel as my pants so i wrapped it around me.
I walked into the hospital and told them my situation and they took me straight in to assess me. the nurse asked me if i had a pad on and i said yes and as she took my pants off me i saw just blood EVERYWHERE. Was all over my pants, shirt and the bed. they quickly cleaned me up and took blood tests.
I was taken to have an ultrasound and there they saw my uterus was FULL of clots. he told me that id lost the baby but now their concern was my health and saftey, i was busting to go to the toilet but there was concern of me haemorrhaging if i was to go in and go to the toilet. they all spoke to one another as i lay on the bed crying, for my loss and because i was so scared about what might happen. they comforted me and 2 nurses took me in to go to the toilet.
I felt like i had to go but it felt like there was something blocking it, then a massive amount of clots and blood filling the bucket they put into the toilet to catch it all for testing came out then after that was about 1/2 cup of urine.
they told me not to try for another baby for at least 6 months because this (3rd) miscarriage has really taken a toll on my body. I have to go see a gyno to have some test done and check that everything inside is ok and that i can still have children.
I continued to bleed for about a week after and had clots the size of a fist, every time i stood up blood would gush out.
Was the scariest day of my life to date. has anyone else had this sort of thing happen or known anyone that has had this sort of thing happen with a miscarriage? my other 2 miscarriages were just like heavy periods and were over within about 3 or 4 days.
Sorry was so long.
