Follow up with OB went well. He is more concerned with my emotional health and well being at this point. Then Friday, after over a week of brown/disgusting discharge/'bleeding' I started cramping and having what I would call a 'normal' period. As the evening turned into night, though, it quickly became something way worse than a 'normal' period. Since I had had the m/c 4 weeks earlier, I didn't even think that it might have been connected to that, but apparently it may have.
So, about 18 hours in, my body went into shock. I was shaking, having cold sweats, pale with dark circles under the eyes, vomiting, and having the worst uteral pain imaginable (without the joy of a baby afterward, I suppose), plus I had lost a lot of blood (with clots). So DH drove as quickly as he could to the ER and I was admited immediately - which was wonderful. Fifteen mins later I had an IV in and went through the first bag within 45 minutes - crazy dehydrated. Eventually I was given gravol and then morphine.
Thankfully there was no sign of left over 'product' and no infection, which was good news. So literally, this was my first period starting post-m/c. Brutal. Because I had lost so much blood, they were thinking I may have needed a transfusion, but thankfully didn't once my fluid levels were back up.
Today is a much better day, but still uncomfortable. I have T3s for pain if needed. Super heavy flow still though (sorry, TMI). I have to go back tomorrow for more blood work since I still have a BETA count in the 300s.
Otherwise, we have our review appt booked for July 22nd at TCART, so we are looking forward to chatting with Dr Chang and seeing about where we go from here. I pray that I will never have to deal with another m/c again and that, the next time I 'go into labour', I will have a healthy baby to show for it!
Best of luck to you Evan on your ER this week! Will be praying for you and your little follies!!

July 2013 - follow up at TCART - genetic testing and egg quality/quantity testing for me
Nov 2013 - phone follow up - test results show I'm all good genetically; egg quality and quantity for my age is low. Wonderful. Flare protocol for next cycle. DHEA recommended - still trying to decide if it's the right way to go. Next cycle 'up in the air' due to finances.
Dec 2013 - TTCN one week late...Jan 1/14 BFN, then AF. Lovely.
Hoping 2014 will be our year.
