Saturday april 7th 2012, I took a pregnancy test at the advice of my boss. Never in a million years did I expect it to be positive. When that plus sign showed up, I already knew I was miscarrying. I had been bleeding since my expected af date of 3/24. I even took a test that morning that was neg. The Monday following the pos pt, I made an appointmentfor my ob. She got me in same day, did a full work up. According to LMP of 2/25 I should have been 6 weeks exactly. The numbers for HCG were 310 and low because of the bleeding I was sent for an US and it showed no sac or pole. I had follow up labs on wednesday and my numbers were 300. I was scheduled for a D & C on friday night. It didn't really hit me til the US that it was happening and to make matters worse, my tech wasn't very professional about it, asking things like if I was really pregnant, or if I was sure, then diagnosing me which I am sure is beyond her scope of practice for only being a tech. DH and I were hoping for the best and expecting the worst. It seems like this ordeal has brought out the angry side of him. He has become very short with our 2.5 yo DS, cranky at me for not wanting to stay on bed rest even when I feel fine, and constantly reprimanding our DS for wanting to lay next to me or on me. I think he is just being over protective but its starting to wear on me. Im exhausted enough battling my own demons about this without him constantly being mean to our son. I am coping the best way I know how but I am not sure how to help him. He isn't a talker and I can't bring it up without him shrugging it of like he doesn't really thinkor care about it. I can tell its bothering him too but I just can't seem to get him to open up about it. Any advice?View Thread
