Almost 2 months later, I'm now finding the strength to write completely about my miscarriage.
On Monday, June 11th, 2007 I took an Early Pregnancy Test (EPT) and it showed me one very dark line, and a faint 2nd line - I was so paranoid, that I grabbed my sister and we headed down to the mall so I could take a digital test. This was all after dinner, around 6pm. I bought a ClearBlue Digital Test and headed to the bathroom to POAS! It says to wait a minute, and let me tell you that minute seemed to last FOREVER! The little hourglass kept blinking and blinking, my sister was on the other side of the stall door asking "what does it say??" and "is it there yet??" I couldn't help but laugh at her! Then, low and behold, I got a big fat answer - PREGNANT. In both english and french!
I called my doctor the next day, and made the appointment for later on that afternoon. I headed down, and had blood drawn, he said he'd call me by the Thursday to let me know what the results were. The two day wait drove me crazy! My mom was being a little negative, by saying things like "don't let it sink in too much, you might miscarry" and all that stuff. Really hurt me! I still hadn't told the father yet by this point.
Thursday came, and my doctor was a little busy in the office. I had to call him to get my results. He said that my HCG levels were low, and I was either only 5 weeks, or my 8 week pregnancy had stopped growing. So by this point, I was praying to God that I was only 5 weeks! I was scheduled to have more blood drawn the next day.
The next day came which was Friday, June 15th, 2007. I woke up that morning and saw blood spotting on my panties. I went to the bathroom, peed, and wiped to see a huge clot on the paper. I knew by this point that I was miscarrying. I started crying, but managed to pull myself together and go to my room to call the lab. I still went to get the blood drawn, but I pretty much knew that the results would end up being negative.
I bled all weekend, and bawled my eyes out each time I went to the bathroom. The bleeding lasted over the weekend and was finished by June 18th. My doctor called me that day and said that by the time the blood was drawn on Friday, which was roughly 2pm, I had already miscarried.
I only told a few friends and they were all very supportive. They knew about the pregnancy from the minute I got my test results and told me they would be there to back me up no matter what.
The father found out about it the following week, him and I have been going strong ever since June 29th and we've decided to TTC starting September 1st, 2007!
