Scan Update

Back to the hospital this morning.

I’ve been chucking trainees out of my consultations left right and centre over the last week and a half. I’m usually not bothered by them, but I just don’t feel like I can face an audience on this one.

So… yet another ultrasound.

Apparently there is a 4mm piece of something left in my uterus. And my lining measures 17mm.

They won’t discharge me until my lining measures <15mm.

So I have to go back in two weeks for a follow up. They seemed to think I had a lot more bleeding still to come, but my bleeding is really tailing off now. I know my body – I don’t think it will shift anything else until my next period. In fact I noticed yesterday, amongst the blood, the beginning of the stretchy cervical mucus I always get in weeks 1 and 2 of my normal cycle. Ah, the body moves on so fast.

Perhaps if I went for a quick 3 mile run the last piece might fall out?

Ha ha ha – kidding. You don’t seriously think I’d go for a run after what my body has been through do you? I can barely poo properly because my digestive tract is still settling back into its former position now that all the pregnancy stuff has gone and returned the space to my bowels.

In other news, the lab at Salisbury confirmed with the hospital that they had the baby for testing, so hopefully not too much longer to wait on results.

Update: I did  a pregnancy test. A strong positive still. Bah.
I tested negative quite quickly after my miscarriages at 6.5 weeks, but I guess this will just take a little longer as I was so much further along.
Maybe that run is not such a bad idea after all…

  1. The body is a weird thing. I only bled for 4 days with my chemical this month (normally have a 6-7 day AF since having Monkey, 3-4 days beforehand). Then my BBT didn’t drop to normal AF temps until today – 11 days post loss). I did wonder if something was stuck and even did another pregnancy test a few days ago. Watching CM too. The body is weird. Whi knows what is happening. From stories I’ve read expecting maybe the mother of all bleeds next AF. I can only assume it knows what it is doing. Fingers crossed whatever is happening it is all easy for you and that you get some results soon. Every time I go to the loo I picture you catching that teeny baby. You are SO brave. X

    • Yes – it does sounds like you might well get a worse AF next month. That’s a long time for your BBT to stay high too. Bodies eh? Who knows what the hell kind of schedule they run on. Not much fun 🙁
      Not bravery – I was just so grateful that he came out intact instead of the nightmare I had envisaged with the suction tube. Just so much more peaceful and respectful of a tiny little life to leave that way. It sounds horrendous, but actually it was probably the most healing part of the whole thing. At least that way, I got to hold him and mentally say goodbye. X

    • I didn’t even ask (Mrs Anti-Drugs here!). I’m sure it will sort itself out in its own time. Unlike previous miscarriages I’m in no rush to try again just yet. I need (that all too precious) time to sort out my body and my head, I think.
