So I was having a miscarriage... I was in shock as I'd seen my little one at 8 weeks

miscarriage 10 weeks united states

Friday night after a long day of shopping I went to the bathroom and realized I had brownish blood in my panties. I didn't think it would be something to worry about. I did mention it to my husband but he told me that it would be fine.

The next day I woke up to go to work and I bled a little more but it wasn't as much so I didn't worry... Then, at work, I started bleeding a little heavier... And that's when I worried, I told my boss I had to leave, that I needed to go to the ER.

I got there, had a pelvic exam, ultrasound, and the doctor had the worst news for me... There was no heartbeat, so I was having a miscarriage... I was in shock as I had seen my little one when I was 8 weeks. I couldn't believe it.

He sent me home and told me I would naturally have it in the next couple of days... And on Sunday night I did. I went over to my sister's house to tell her the news and she told me I should sleepover and I did.

I started cramping though, and the pain just got stronger and stronger and I couldn't take it anymore. I told her to take me to the restroom that I need to poop.

My husband wasn't there so I told her to call him and once he got there I felt the urge to push... It was very very painful but I did it... My baby was out... It was painful physically and emotionally... We were all in tears...

I was so excited to have my second child but it wasn't to be. It changed my life completely :( it's so hard to cope with my loss, I still can't believe it...
