Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss Support Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss Support

I found out this morning that my baby's heart stopped last week at 9w1d.  The last U/S picture I saw won't leave my head, it was just so cute and perfect. 

I'm going to talk to an MD tomorrow about a D&C (I saw the midwife today).  I just wanted any advice on what to expect since I've never had to deal with this before.  Has anyone else had a D&C and can tell me what it was like for them?

I am very sorry for your loss. I did have a d&c, I was 16w at the time. They put me to sleep, which was the scariest part for me because I've never been knocked out before. I woke up, had some bleeding and cramping for a few days. They do give you pain meds, which I did take and that helped alot for me.

I would say within a week and a half to two weeks, I was pretty much physcially back to normal.

I had one before but dont remember to much of the after.  I am wondering the same thing...  We are in the exact same boat..   I need to figure out what we (me) are going to do.    I am so sorry we are going through this.

Me too kami :( my midwife wanted me to talk to a dr yesterday but I told her I needed a day too. I spent all day (while not crying and putting on a brave face for my 4 year old) thinking andndoing reseach about it. I still feel pregnant and I dont want to feel that way anymore. And we want to ttc again so I dont see any reason to wait and see and delay everything. I dont know how long a natural will take.

I'm sorry Hun. I went thru same thing. Still dealing with my third loss. My D&C was the 4th and I'm waiting for results then start with genetic testing.

Cramping gas stopped and I have some spotting but its almost gone. The first miscarriage they won't do testing. Most drs won't start until the third.

I keep seeing my ultrasound pic as well. Time will heal your wounds but it won't totally be healed. I'm here if you need to vent or just chat.
