hey, I am 16 years old and a little over a month ago, i found out i was pregnant. i immanently told my mom. the next day my mom took me to our Dr. my Dr. then sent me to the hospital to have blood taken to for sure to see if i was pregnant and to see how far along i was. the hospital told me i was three weeks. so i then went to see my obgyn and they also took blood from me, an then told me i was 7weeks and 6 days? so i was a little confused. days later i was scheduled to go to the hospital to have a ultrasound done...i didn't get a chance to see my little one ='( ....on Friday September 21st i got up to go to school and i started having sharp pains in my uterus, i thought it was normal because i heard when you have cramps while pregnant that means your baby is growing...about a hour or so later, something told me to go to the bathroom, and i was bleeding. i was so scared. i called my mom to come pick me up and i went to the hospital. they took blood from me again and did a ultrasound. the ultrasound determined that I was 5 weeks and 4 days pregnant and the babys' sack was low in my uterus which wasnt good. and my pregnancy hormone level was 1300 something, so they told me to come back Sunday September 23rd and for me to be on bed rest. when i came back Sunday, they took blood again. an while i was sitting on the hospital bed, something once again told me to go to the bathroom and look down...and there it was, the sack. i was so devastated. so the nurses rushed in the bathroom after telling my mom and boyfriend who was in the room with me and they took the sack and put it in a cup and sent it to the lab. shortly the nurse came back in the room with a sad look on her face and told me that my hormone level had dropped to 187 and i had miscarried. my heart was broken and still is. i am still having to go back and forth to my obgyn and hospital because of this. last Monday i had to have a DNC. and i have another Dr.s apt. with my obgyn on the 22nd of this month. i am still hurting mentally and physically from this. i am so scared to get pregnant again in the future because i do not want this to happen again and im scared it will. if someone could please help me and give me some advise, i would sure be grateful and appreciate it. thanks for taking the time to read my story.View Thread
