D&C tonight — The Bump
Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

D&C tonight

Met with the doctor today. My beta is still over 15,800. It doesn't look like this is going to happen naturally anytime soon, so we set the D&C. She was able to get me in tonight so at least I don't have to dwell on it for too long. I want this to be over, but I'm so upset about doing the D&C. I feel very sad and angry that my body wouldn't just do it on its own. I'm really scared about the procedure and being in an OR again.

Re: D&C tonight

  • I'm so sorry your body isn't doing things on its own.

    Good luck tonight. The procedure itself is not bad at all, as you're obviously put under. I found the anticipation leading up to it is much worse, and recovery was a breeze. Physically at least.

    Will be thinking of you tonight!

  • Good luck. I just had mind yesterday. The procedure is very stress free. The worst part for me was being dehydrated and having small veins so I was poked multiple times to get an IV. Sometimes the d&c is better because you know that everything has come out. Even people who had a natural MC end up having a d&c later because the body didn't expel everything.

  • I know you have had anxiety over this for a few days. I am praying for you tonight.
