When to see a caregiver when having an early m/c?
I do not have concrete *proof* that I am miscarrying, just a gut feeling. I have a 4 1/2 mo old and had signs of ovulation a month ago, then a couple weeks ago started feeling preg. symptoms- I had already taken 2 neg tests, but were prob. taken too early to show up (plus I drink a lot of water so the were very diluted). Took another test at what would be 1 week late and was neg. still-- I have been preggo 3 times and know what it feels like for me (super super tired despite getting good sleep was number one, crampy feeling when baby would nurse, breast tenderness, queasiness off and on, things tasting funny to me) so I figured I must not have ovulated and wasn't preggo and to try not to think about it (my babe is only 4 1/2 mos old anyway!!). Well, yesterday my pd did start (this would be my 1st pp pd)-which would be about 2 weeks "late" from when I thought I ovulated. It is horrible, my cramping actually feels like contractions, I can't sleep, I am sweaty and having hot flashes, and bleeding very heavily. If this is a miscarriage, is there anything I should do? Should I see a caregiver? I feel like they wouldn't believe me anyway since I had 3 neg. HPTs!!! Any advice is greatly appreciated!!
