I lost my baby. I went in for an ultrasound on Friday, when baby should have measured at 9 weeks 4 days. However, baby only registered at 6 weeks 2 days, and they couldn't detect a heartbeat. SOOO.. Shouldn't I have had spotting and cramping and whatnot by now? I started potting last Monday, cramping Thursday, so we moved my ultrasound up to Friday.  I've been passing stringy sticky CM, that's been tinged with a medium pink color. And also, I got a little bit of actual blood. No clots yet. Should I be concerned?? I don't want to get a DNC done unless it's absolutely neccesary, and my doctors want me to try to pass everything at home. However, if I don't start heavy bleeding by Friday, I need to call them and we'll "go from there". Urgh. I want to start passing everthing NOW. I'm going to call my doctor in the morning and ask about some medicine that I can get that can I guess, start inducing everything to get the ball rolling.

personally i'd rather get the D&C if i had to do it all over again.. passing it on my own was just too painful having to se everything. I passed four clots.. two of them were my babies.. Im sorry for you loss and I hope everything works out for you.

So sorry for your loss.  It's a hard thing to go thru.  I had the same thing happen back in 2000.  If you start passing everything, you need to have the DNC.  If you don't, you can get a horrible infection.  Please take care.

Jun. 2, 2008 at 8:20 PM I'm sorry for your loss. I know how devastating it is. My dr gave me three options when I found out my baby had no hb at 14 weeks- I could pass it on my own, she could give me medicine to speed it up or a d&c. She recommended the D&C & that was what I went with.  Truthfully, that was the easiest part of my mc. As far as scar tissue that really wasn't an issue.  If you have any questions about a d&c or ever want to chat/vent - please pm me.
