ErinBriana - November 2

Two Wednesdays ago I started to have very light brown discharge, which eventually turned reddish, then eventually mucousy. I ended up going to Urgent Care last Saturday where they did an ultrasound and they said they did see the baby with a heartbeat, which is kind of shocking because I did end up losing it. I went to my reg doctor on this last Monday (2 days after Urgent Care said there was a heartbeat) and had an ultrasound only to find out my baby had died a couple of weeks prior. I had to have a D&C done since my cervix hadn't dilated at all. I am speechless- the exact words of the doctor in Urgent Care was "I can see the four chambers of it's heart and it's definitely beating." So I asked her what the heartrate was (since it was low at my six week ultrasound), but since this ultrasound machine was new (and no one had been trained on it yet), she couldn't give me that info. I asked her if I could see my baby, which she supposedly showed me, although it looked funny to me, then disappeared, so she said it probably moved because it was sick of her pushing on it. Besides losing the baby, what really bothers me is the fact that they had a machine in the ER that no one was trained on and I was the first "guinea pig" I guess you could say for this doctor. The regular ultrasound machine that was normally used in the ER was available AND the OB was open at the time (since I went during urgent care hours). What would you do if this happened to you? I called the hospital today to file a complaint, mainly so this doesn't happen to someone else and am waiting to hear from them...Also, I hope everyone else's pregnancy is successful because I wouldn't wish this feeling on anyone.

That's horrible, and very sad. I hate going to the ER. I went for 2 of my miscarriages...each time I had to sit there for at least 5 hours, the nurse screwed up my arm by not being able to find the vein (I had a two inch black bruise for a month), and they DON'T know what's going on, seriously. I got wheeled in to ultrasound, a girl doing it was about my age (25), she started it and was clicking away...and wouldn't say anything, and then I was like "ummm, so do you see anything?", and she goes "here are your ovaries, the blood is pumping through well" and I'm like "what about the baby???" and she goes "OH, ARE YOU PREGNANT???" I would not advise for anyone to go to the ER. My male nurse I had for my second miscarriage told me that we have to wait A YEAR until TTC again. I was miscarrying right then, and they told me to follow up with a doctor for a repeat pregnancy test. I was like "WHY???? I'M HAVING A MISCARRIAGE, IT'S PRETTY OBVIOUS" Anyway, I'm sorry it happened to you, only time will make you feel better, nothing else.
