Tomorrow is M-Day (Methotrexate Day) Ummmm NOT!

Yesterday I started to properly bleed, but it was on and off and only about a regular pad’s worth of blood.  Today I woke up with spotting. Damn it I thought.  But then at lunch time it came – the bleeding got heavier and has continued today.  I think my body is going to deal with this naturally.  I am starting to feel more positive about me saying no on Sunday to the methotrexate injection.

Today I rang up my clinic and explained what happened over the weekend.  After multiple calls from various nurses and doctors, this evening we eventually decided upon a plan of attack.  Tomorrow morning I go for a beta blood test, then in the afternoon I will return for an ultrasound.  By that time my doctor will be free out of surgery so she can see me personally, and she will have my blood test results.  So fingers crossed my hCG levels are in fact going down – surely they must be if I am bleeding this much? Otherwise if they are still increasing she wants me to take the methotrexate.

My liver function blood test results all came back normal, but my Blood Cell differential results didn’t come back exactly all normal.  But they are not too far from the normal limits i.e. pointing towards anemia. It will be interesting to see what the doc says.  I know what is normal for me because my work makes me take an annual medical which includes a full blood cell count – I’ve always had quite low numbers and is why I take multi-vits to top me up – perhaps it is just the IVF treatment, or perhaps it is normal for a pregnant lady.  But we shall find out tomorrow!!!

    I think the fact that you have start to bleed is a good indicator that your body is going to process the miscarriage without needing the shot. But, I am glad your doctor has a good plan and you are being checked out by her in person tomorrow. I hate that you are going through this, but I do hope that the physical miscarriage happens quickly so that you can begin to focus on your next steps. I always find once the physical miscarriage is done that I really do feel a lot better, so I hope you feel the same way too.

    I never thought I would say that I’m happy to hear that bleeding has started, but if it’s that vs. methotrexate, I’m glad it started. I hate that you’re having to deal with this at all though. Sending you love and prayers and hugs!
