Cramping and ER visit :(
Ug....last night was the worst. It was Friday, I was feeling fine (my mother-in-law is in town), so we were hanging out, watching tv, and relaxing. I went to bed around 11:00. I had a hard time falling asleep and around 12:00 I got these really bad lower pelvic cramps (contraction-like in their waves/intensity)...enough to cause me to moan, make me cry, and wake my husband.
They came in about 3 strong waves (with slight breaks in-between), and I was really scared I was having an ectopic pregnancy or a miscarriage because it was so painful. It also felt like I had to go (sick) #2, and I tried to go but nothing came out. However, the strange thing was I had no bleeding.
I was pissed about the possibility of going to the ER, but given the pain I was feeling, I decided to go to rule out anything life-threatening just in case. I don't mess with medical stuff.
We got there, they did bloodwork and an ultrasound and looked at my cervix. The pain was down to more of a discomfort, and lower back pain.
No vaginal bleeding (and still none this morning) and they said that my cervix was still closed. The ultrasound revealed a mass that was consistent with 5 weeks pregnant as was my blood-work, but they also said that the pain I felt was not normal, and I needed to go back to my OB on Monday to have my levels checked again.
The doctor said that my symptoms are "probable for a miscarriage". It sucks really bad, and now I'm playing the waiting game.
Has this happened to anyone else before? I would be curious to see.... Any advice, stories or support would be greatly appreciated.
