I just miscarried... I was around 11 and 1/2 weeks pregnant.
About 2 weeks ago I stopped feeling pregnant, my boobs weren't sore anymore and I no longer had nausea, and I had more energy. I was told this was normal for a lot of people.
Four days before my m/c I noticed a small amount of brownish discharge on my underwear. I contacted the Dr. and she told me that this can be normal, and if it was a m/c there is very little I could do to stop it. Over the next 2 days there was very little discharge and I felt great. So I went skiing, (8kms) I went slow and steady, knowing I had to be careful not to overheat. In hindsight I wish I never went.
As soon as I got in I noticed there was reddish/ brown blood in my underwear. I called the dr. and she suggested that I rest and put my feet up and if the bleeding gets worse, or if I start have cramps to call her. I live in a remote community so there is no ER.
My bleeding stopped, and I went to sleep. In the middle of the night I woke up to pains in my lower back that moved towards my cervix, and they came in rhythms... and I knew they were contractions. I was in a lot of pain. I passed 3 blood clots and went to the health centre. I tried my hardest not to let the contractions to take over. I tried so hard to keep the baby in there... which I knew was not going to work but I had to try.
I bled a lot, but no cartilage came out at all, just dark red blood... eventually the contractions stopped, but the gestational sac had not come out. They did a pelvic exam and said my cervix was open and the gestational sac was blocking it. My heart sunk! I had a D&C the next day.
My husband and I are devastated. I have no idea why I miscarried, I have so many questions. How would I know if I do not produce enough progesterone? I had irregular periods before I got pregnant? 38, 25, 42, 52, 25 does this have anything to do with the amount of progesterone I produce?
