Miscarriages Happen To Teens TooI was three months along, almost four when it happened. I was in bed asleep with a felt this painful cramp on my side. I knew right then what was happening. I went to the bedroom and saw that I was bleeding.
At the ER the nurses were all very nice and friendly but the doctor was a jerk. I guess he thought I was just some other teen mother even if I was 19 with my own place, job and car. Maybe he was just tired since it was late at night.
After an x-ray, I was wheeled into a hallway with a window. I watched the sun come up, it was then that I cried for the first time. I was given some meds and sent home.
I have an appointment the next week setup for an Ob/Gyn which I called to cancel. The nurse said I should come in anyway just to check. I am glad I did, if not I might have died.
The miscarriage was not complete. He waited to do a DC right then in the hospital next to his office. I told him I couldn't because I drove myself and my family lived in the next town. Two days later I returned for the DC.
It has been 7 years since I had the miscarriage. I think back on what could have been and how my life would have been very different. Sometimes I feel sad and hurt but then I know my time will come one day.
