Hello everyone, I promised I would post this. I may need to stop periodically and take a break and add more later. If I do, I will be sure to mark what part is updated so you do not get confused. Please bear with me, as this newest one is still so fresh in my mind. I am sure you all understand.
I am going to start with the current one, as I have found something interesting out about the possible cause of it.
This last Monday 7-3 (my wedding anniversary) my DH was working his normal 24 hour shift. I was having a normal day home with the kids and in the late afternoon I noticed a little bit of blood when I wiped. Then I started having a little bit of cramping. It went on/off and I called and talked to the midwife in the doc's office. She basically told me if I could hold out until Wed., after the holiday, they would get me in for labwork and an u/s. I told her I would try. Then I started having some right-side pain so I posted something in the general pregnancy loss about the possibility of an ectopic. Beckie responded to me right away and we talked on IM for a good long time. She helped keep me calm. The bleeding was still on/off till I went to bed sometime after 4am. I woke up the next morning and was covered in blood. So I cleaned myself up and told DH I needed to go to the ER. He took me and dropped me off since we had all 3 kids so he took them home. They did a urine test, bloddwork and an u/s. The beta showed I was pregnant but the doctor said the numbers were so low to be 6w4d gestation. For the life of me, I can't remember the number and he told me. In the u/s they saw my little bean but no heartbeat.
They gave me the option of either having a D&C the next day or going home and letting nature take its course. I opted to go home and be with my family. That night I started having wicked cramps and passing tissue and clots.
I talked to my OB doctor. He said the theory is that there was an excessive amount of fluid around my ovary, indicating I had a huge cyst rupture. It caused an infection. I have never heard of this. He said obviously I had the cyst for quite a while. He said there was nothing I could do to prevent this, nothing I did wrong.
My DH & best friend are soooo upset right now. When I called the doctors office a couple of weeks ago to schedule my 1st appointment, they said they couldn't get me in till the 13th. I had explained to the receptionist that I am usually high-risk but she told me if something was going to happen, there was nothing the doctor could have done about it anyways. I also asked her if they wanted to send me for any labs before the appt. but she said no, they always wait till after the appt. DH & my best friend feel if they got me in sooner, especially for an u/s, they might have caught the cyst and could have done something about it sooner. I don't know. Maybe things would be different, maybe not.
It has now been almost 5 days and the bleeding has slowed down but not stopped. The cramping has stopped and I am no longer having tissue and clots come out. I still have my appt. for the 13th and he is going to send me for a repeat beta and u/s to make sure everything happened naturally.

I am going to stop here because I am really upset right now. I will post the rest real soon. If you have any opinions, please let me know.
Thank you KimberlyD0 for my absolutely beautiful siggy!

Holly- again I am so sorry for your loss & all you've been through. I wasn't aware they had found that cyst...I have a history of cysts myself. From the research I have done (don't know if tis helps) - I don't think there is much they can do to treat an ovarian cyst safely while pg without risk of inducing a mc. The major problem is that cysts effect hormones & your ovaries as you now produce your hormones..or at least some of your hormones. Anytime you do something to your ovaries, it will effect your hormones, at least temporarily - so I am not certain what can be done during a pg. I hope you are able to get more answers & I am sorry that this happened at all. Take good care of yourself & just update us when you feel up to it. ((Hugs))

I feel the same way but y DH & best friend keep dwelling on the what if's. I don't want to do that because if I do I am going to get really upset and right now with hurting emotionally as bad as I am, being angry at anyone right now is not going to help.

The cyst caught us by total surprise because even though I have a history of them, I have not had one like this in about 4-5 years. So even on Monday when I was describing the right side pain, that thought never even occured to me.
Thank you KimberlyD0 for my absolutely beautiful siggy!
