My first pregnancy and I miscarried
(Alamogordo, New Mexico, US)
I'm almost 30 and was so excited to hear from the nurse that I was for sure pregnant. My husband and I had been trying for 6 months. I was wondering if I could even get pregnant because I wasn't ovulating every month.
I don't know if the non ovulation was due to stress or hormonal imbalance. So there I was 6 months into trying and finally a positive result. Four weeks went by as I was starting to feel changes in my body. At first I just thought they were normal, but then I started to spot. I immediately felt nothing but panic. I knew spotting could be a sign of miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. As I was spotting for 2 days then I got so worried I went to the ER. I had an ultrasound and bloodwork done. At that point the doctors thought everything was still ok. The next day I started bleeding heavy and pushing tissue. That is when I knew I was miscarrying. I had horrible cramps in my abdominals and back. I was so devastated to know that it wasn't going to happen. My husband was too. It's so hard to handle emotionally and mentally. It has been 4 days since my miscarriage and I'm starting to feel better. I'm optimistic about trying for another one.
