Please Help Girls I Need A Friend I Feel Soooo LonelyHi guys,
This is my third pregnancy (i am 12w3d) and i am attending Limerick Maternity. I started spotting at 8/9 weeks and thought the worst. However it turned out i had a sac of blood in the uterus which was found by ultrasound on the 5/11/11 but wasnt fully confirmed as they were questioning whether it was ectopic also, it was very upsetting. I was admitted for the weekend and monitered and after another scan on the monday 7/11/11 they confirmed a uterine pregnancy and a subchorionic hematoma aka blood clot. I was discharged and told to rest but to contact them anytime if i got worried or the bleeding increased. They also booked another US for 22/11/11.
On the 15/11/11 the bleeding did increase so i rang admissions and they said to come straight in for a scan. I live roughly two hours from the maternity so i was frightened and worried the whole drive there. I had another scan and everything showed fine with the baby but the bleed had gotten a small bit bigger. So they let me home and said REST. I did that, and then went back on the 22/11/11 (last tuesday) had another scan, hoping i would be told that everything was clearing up and reabsorbing...To my disappointment i was told by the sonographer (i ask alot of questions) that they were two new bleeds and that the original blood clot had got a little bigger.....and to go back up to admissions and they would advise me on what road to take next......
To my shock and surprise the clot had quadrupled in size in the week :o( i was so upset but the doctor i had couldnt have been nicer. As i live so far from the hospital she wanted me to be admitted but due to my emotional distress she didnt push it and allowed me home as long as i rested loads! It was then she said Partial Placental Abruption...
Also on the 23/11/11 due to my blood type i had to have an anti D injection...
I am frightened now cause everytime i go for a check up and scan now i'm afraid the clot and two other bleeds will have got worse or worst case scenario my baby will no longer have a heartbeat.
Has anyone else experienced this at all. What kind of care did you receive? I feel completely alone and don't know should i have stayed in hospital or not. I have my first official Ante Natal next wednesday and instead of looking forward to it i am dreading it. I love my little baby already and don't know what to expect over the next six months. However, i am the type i need to know EVERY outcome possible!
Oh My partner has BEEN FANTASTIC through all of this too. I couldn't be luckier in that sense.
Please help girls i need a friend right now!
