Pregnancy #1 mc
I called my dr's office to get my HCG results. She said at 5 weeks mine should be in the 1000's but mine was only 175. I assume that means my baby is "gone". I feel fortunate to have ever gotten pregnant and I will again and with all the info I have learned from losing this angel, I'll be able to make sure the next one sticks. I am just ready to heal and get back to being pregnant again.
I haven't had the BETA yet but I did get a BFP on a test this morning...oh so faint but the closest I have ever gotten. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy I am speechless! HOLLIE MARTIN IS PREGNANT!
We drove to Rio Bravo from Athens TX. It was about a 10 hour drive. I would not suggest driving yourself. In hindsight I think it would have been much easier to take the shuttle instead.
We arrived around 4:30 and Dr. Levi just happened to be at the front desk. He called Dr. Perez and since I had not eaten they were going to do my surgery that night. I think it was around 5:30 when I was wheeled in. Dr. Moreno gave me some medicine, the last thing I remembered was someone asking me where I drove from, I don't even remember getting the epidural at all. I woke up and looked at the clock and it said 6:30 and I remember thinking why is it taking so long and I could feel some pressure. Dr. Moreno asked how I was and I told him I could feel it and he gave me some medicine and I went back to sleep. I remember them taking me back to a different room and seeing my husband and then I was in and out after that. Dr. Levi came in during the night and told me that I had to be repaired quite a bit so that must have been why I thought it was taking a long time.
The next morning Dr. Levi told me I had been given a partial fymbriectomy on one side and my tube had been cut close to the uterus on the other side. They repaired what they could and I was left with 5cm on the LT and 4 RT. I think that is a miracle considering all that had been done before. I still have a great chance and I am looking forward to having another baby.
Thank you to everyone at the hospital you are all wonderful people.
God bless all of you and I pray that you will continue to help other
families like mine.
