So, third loss- not exactly super new news. I got a bfp in early April, but knew by the third week in April that it was a blighted ovum. Four doses of cytotec didn't work to pass the tissue, so my OB did an endometrial biopsy a few weeks ago to basically stab it and burst the sac. Felt kind of barbaric, but by that point I was just like, whatever. Let's get this over with.
On Thursday June 6 I had my HCG tested to see where we were- just over 200, which was good news. A significant drop from a few weeks before (it was over 6000 then), so my body finally got the message that it needed to move on. My OB said my period would start the following week- and actually, the following day my bleeding picked up and by last Tuesday 6/11 it was very heavy period bleeding.
Just today, nearly TWO FULL MONTHS after learning it was a non-viable pregnancy, did I pass tissue. I'm pretty sure it was placenta. I cannot believe this has been dragging on this long.
