    Ok! I'm still alive. I scanned through all the posts and I have a few replies, but first I will tell you about my wierd experience. I feel like I am living in the twilight zone, and let me tell you... I'd be sad for anyone in my situation who didn't have medical knowledge, or they'd be scared to death right now.
    This is a long story, and I apologize, but I know a lot of you were worried.

    WARNING... this story will make you sad, and is mildly medically graphic.

    I went to the emergency room, and complain of wierd abdominal pain and fullness. They do some standard bloodwork and start me on an IV drip for my dehydration (I haven't kept anything down in days) Intern comes in and starts examining me, asking me all kinds of wierd questions about my condition and making strange faces as she is doing the exam. I reiterate several times that I am a nurse, and that she should tell me what is going on before I freak out. She goes and gets the head of Obstetrics. I know there is a serious serious problem, since the head of Obstetrics doesn't come down from Maternity to the ER for just anything.

    They bring down a portable ultrasound machine. I tell them that my other main concern is that I should have felt fetal movement by now, and have felt NONE. Doctors start looking more concerned, and begin ultrasound. They ask me several times what my Due date is, when my last period was, etc.

    We have known for a while now (several weeks) that something is wrong.
    My regular doctor could not find fetal heartbeat at my appointment, and scheduled me for an ultrasound. However, because of the major wait times for everyone in the maternity system here, our regular ultrasound wasn't scheduled till next week.

    I went to emergency totally prepared to hear the worst possible thing. They all knew I was prepared. I was totally NOT prepared to hear what they told me though.

    Apparently, the pregnancy I had been carrying ended naturally several weeks ago. Possibly as long ago as a month. (I had thought this, not a surprise) However, there is an insane amount of swelling and fluid around my uterus and stomach, caused by a severe infection that was a result of the fact that I had something called an "incomplete miscarriage".

    So they are telling me what is going on, and that they are going to flush out my uterus, and start treating the infection. Then they notice on the ultrasound that there is a new, viable pregnancy that is about 8-10 weeks along, and they are figuring that is where the sickness is coming from. Soo.. they don't know what to do now. Going in for another ultrasound on friday with a specialist, and proceeding from there.

    So. My friends I have totally made my peace with the whole thing. I made it weeks ago, because as most of you can relate.. you just "know" when something isn't right. So, I'm sure you will all be very sad for me, since we shared in this whole thing together, but the ray of hope that I was given was something I never expected. We will see what comes from it all, and just think of me on Friday. I'm on some crazy antibiotics, but other than that I feel much better. I'm going to be around for sure, so if you wanna chat, don't be afraid to chat. I'm feeling ok!

    Haunish -- The test they gave you is totally not the test I *thought* they would give you, but should have a similar result.. The one I mentioned was a bit less painful but very wierd. I'm sorry it hurt, they should have given you a numbing agent beforehand, no?

    NS -- I hope your foot is feeling better, do you have any other symptoms?? Such a strange thing to happen!

    Rose -- Things will get better. If I lived in TO you could totally stay with me

    **************************

    I know we have a bunch of newer members here, so I will reiterate again..
    Please, please please... don't edit the wiki! I went on this morning and there was new content added and some taken away. It really just makes my job a lot harder if people touch it. So please, in the interest of keeping it useful for everyone, don't touch

    *****************************
    HUGS all, and thank you for worrying about me! You all truly are my second family.

    OK-I read what I was pretty sure I didn't want to read. What is amazing is you Michelle! You are one brave and amazing woman! Of course you are grieving, but you seem at peace with the whole situation and nothing could be better for you than that right now. Of course there is another little kitten in there! I'll bet there is a whole line of little kitten souls fighting to have you as their mommy. I sure would be! And you know why right??? In your words....YOU ROCK!!!
