Years ago, I had an 22 years of 1997 2019 Harry Potter thank you for the memories shirt. I was less than thrilled but warming up to the idea. Then, just two days before my 8 week check, I started bleeding. I knew I was miscarrying. I called the clinic to cancel, and let them know. The person on the other end told me get to the ER right away. I explained to her that I didn’t feel the need. It was so early, I wasn’t bleeding heavily and no cramping. It just like my period came late. Still, she wanted me to go. I felt silly at the ER and apologized quite a bit for being there when it wasn’t really necessary. The next day I get a call from the clinic. “Your labs came back and you may still be pregnant. Your hormone levels aren’t high but not as low as they should be.
Every day, 2 times a day, I had to go get blood draws as my hormone levels fell slowly but 22 years of 1997 2019 Harry Potter thank you for the memories shirt. This was very difficult. I lived 30 minutes away from the clinic and didn’t drive. I just wanted to happily put this pregnancy behind me. I finally talked with my OB and asked Do I really need to do these labs? It’s very difficult to get here every day. It’s obvious that the pregnancy isn’t viable and I’m doing fine. It’s just like a heavier period. I’ve misscarried before and never had to do this. Why?”. I reminded her again that I wasn’t exactly thrilled over the idea of becoming a mom again and that I was comfortable with saying goodbye to this pregnancy and wasn’t panicked or upset over it.
