I had a normal first pg and gave birth to a healthy baby boy at 37wks 3 days. When he was 2 in 1992, dh and I decided to try again. We figured it may take a couple of months, but we were 22 and figured it would happen pretty soon. I did not get pg again until May of 1999. We were very happy and figured that we would have an easy and healthy pg just like the first one. I past the 12wk mark and thought that we were going to be fine. 2 days later I started spotting, my regular dr was out of town and the oncall dr told me to go to bed and take it easy. This was a Thursday. I spotted all weekend, but there was no cramping or pain. I went to the ER sometime that weekend and waited a couple of hours but they passed me over due to a MA's error. We just left the ER and went home. On Monday, I started cramping really bad and knew that this was it. I was 12wks 6 days. I called dh home from work and we called my dr. She told me to come in immediately. Her office was across town and I mc in the car on the way over there. This may be tmi but I felt the baby move through the birth canal. When I got to her office and they checked me, she said that I had delivered the baby and the afterbirth. There was no reason for a D&C. I got to see my little angel he/she was perfectly formed and was about 1 1/2 long. We never knew the sex bc we were not far along, we are pretty sure that it was a girl and we called her Kira. Now I am not so sure, so I call the baby Angel. I think one of the worst parts of the whole experience was going back to her office the next day. I am RH negative so I needed to have a shot of Rhogam within 72 hrs of a birth or mc. As they were checking me in triage, the MA who was in the room the day before looked at me and said, "I hope you don't mind if I say this, but your mc is the most interesting one that I have ever seen. I have never seen a mc where the baby and placenta were delivered." I was in such shock I didn't know what to say to her. I just wanted out of that office and I never went back.
I don't know for sure what caused my mc, but I was dx with PCOS 3yrs later. I went on to have a beautiful little girl after a very hard pg.
