My name is Holly Smith.. I am 20 yrs young and married.. When my husband and i first got together back in april of 2011 within 4 months i was pregnant.. I carried the baby til 8 weeks and 2 days until i went to my ob appointment for an ultrasound and there was no heart beat.. I had miscarried which was followed by a D&C surgery. (I didnt have a regular period after this surgery).. My husband and i kinda quit trying to conceive but didnt really prevent. (Went the flow, i guess). I have yet to get pregnant. It is now 2013. I decide to go to the ob for a check-up. They did a pt an i was pregnant.. I couldnt believe it bc i hadnt been pregnant since 2011.. So the doctor gave me a pelvic exam and confirmed i was indeed pregnant, but it was too early to really tell. So they did a vaginal ultrasound and there was nothing.. (Too soon to tell). My doctor said it would probably be a miscarriage bc they also did a hcg level test and the number dropped instead of risng. after the doctors appointment i was very upset and crying.. I just didnt understand.. From that day on for a week i was bleeing very bad so i assumed it was a miscarriage or none at all idk.. My days went on til one day, i had to go chek to see if my rib was broke. So i went to the doctor to get an xray. They asked if theres any chance i could be pregnant, i said not sure check just in case.. They did and it said i was pregnant. So i couldnt get an xray...... Rib continued to hurt. Went back to the ob and it was all the same.. Same tests, same replies from doctors.. It was another miscarriage.. This happened about 3 times.. Well one day my husband and i are mowing the lawn.. We get finished clean the equipment, and he walks behind the house to put the stuff up while im sitting on the porch.. All of a sudden i feel light headed, very weak, and my stomach felt wierd.. By the time my husband got back to me i was doubled over crouching down... He asked whats wrong i said i feel like i need to go to the bathroom.. So he helped me there.. I couldnt push.. The pain was excruciating.. I crawled to the couch and then end up in the car omw to the hospital.. I arrived at the hospital and couldnt walk so i had to get in a wheelchair.. I was signing in and started hyperventilating and asked the doctors to hurry i was dying and they replied "hold on"... THE SAME DOCTORS THAT SAW ME FOR MY RIB COMPLICATIONS.. I eventually got in the room when my whole body was numb.. They proceeded to ask me to pee in a cup to see if i was pregnant and i repeated many times yelling i cant pee.. My body will not let me.. It felt like my insides were falling out... They made me walk by myself to do another vag. Ultrasound.. While passing out and laying in the floor with the doctors standing around me saying whats wrong holly you were here the other and you were fine... They did not help me up nor did they help me with anything else.. I arrived at the hospital a 8 and didnt get into surgery until 12.. The entire time i was in pain with no help other than my husband.. He took great care of me.. I actually almost died in his arms.. The machinces and everything went off like i was dead... Beeeepppppp... Anyways...it was an ectopic pregnancy the entire time...but THEY DIDNT SEE THAT EITHER.. I finally had surgery. A liter of blood flowed into my stomach(internal bleeding). They had to remove my left tube, but i still have two working ovaries and one tube... All of this happened in april 2013.. Which is crazy bc i had my first miscarriage in april 2011.. Aprils not my month.. My doctor said i was very lucky to have survived.. As you can see i was and still am very upset with all the doctors. Its now 2 months after my surgery and i have had 2 regular cycles.. Ive had sexual intercourse with protection since surgery, but im ready to start trying to conceive again.. Is it too soon??? I know everything happens for a reason but im scared it will happen again or something worse.. Should i quit trying??
