This is my story. As hard as it is for me to tell I want you all to hear it and know exactly what I have went through. Hoping that maybe if I speak out this will NEVER happen to any of you!
October 3, 2010 I started my AF. I went in on CD 2 for my u/s and blood work. On October 12th I went in for CD 10 scan to find 3 mature follies and E2 was 613 we were good to go and we triggered with 10,000 IU’s of HCG. I had my IUI on October 14th. Went back on October 21st for P4 test it was 14 so they put me on progesterone. Checked P4 again on the 28th and it was 23.4. Took a HPT on the 24th got a negative and then took one on the 25th and got a BFP. I went in on the 28th to get my beta drawn. It came back at 18.5. On the 30th we did another one and it was 43.7. I went in again on the Nov. 1st and it was 54. I was told that day to stop my progesterone because this wasn’t viable. I went to the ER on the 6th because I was cramping. My cervix was closed, and high with my mucus plug in place. My beta was at 43. I had a cyst on the left ovary that they said was normal to have until the placenta kicks in to produce what the baby needs. I called my RE to let them know what the hospital said and they told me to come in Wednesday to have a beta and we were going to do a d&c because he thought it was ectopic. I went in Nov. 9th and my beta was at 77. He told me I was 5 weeks and 6 days pregnant and more than likely this was ectopic and he needed to do a d&c. He sent me straight to the hospital and they did the d&c. I was in shock because I could not believe all of this. After surgery he told my husband that I did not have much bleeding at all. He said they did retrieve some tissue from the right side of my uterus and they were sending it off to pathology. They had to dilate my cervix because it was closed. I did not bleed but for about an hour after surgery and that has been it all except for this past Saturday for about 15 minutes. I called today to see what the Pathology results said, and the baby was in the uterus and they said nothing was wrong with it. After I got to counting my days I have realized something.
First, by my LMP I was 5 weeks and 2 days pregnant. By the date of the IUI I was 3 weeks and 5 days pregnant. Either way my HCG levels were in normal range for my time of pregnancy. There was no reason to do a d&c on me at all. I was not bleeding. I was cramping but that is normal in pregnancy. My cervix was not opening and my HCG had done a dip but was going back up. It was not in my tube and they found nothing wrong with my baby. I think the RE made a hasty decision and I do not have my baby because he TOOK my baby!!! I have felt like something wasn’t right since that day and I even asked him why was he doing the d&c when my levels were going up. He said it was a classic ectopic. NO it wasn’t. I had the baby in my uterus and nothing was wrong!
I will be going Friday to get a copy of all my records and I will be getting a lawyer. I feel like I was given an abortion rather than a d&c. I hate to even type those words! I am livid, crushed, hurt, and extremely sad! I would never in my wildest dreams would have expected this to happen.
I am sorry if this hurt anyone to read this. I am not looking for an excuse of why I lost my baby, I am just stating facts of what did occur. I have had a m/c before and I know that my body passed the baby. It was 16 years ago and I know it took me a while to get over it, but with all that I know now about this recent event I am beside myself with disbelief and grief. I will get to the bottom of what happened. If by some reason my baby was not destine to make it that is one thing, but if my baby was trying to thrive that is a different story all together. I need to know!
