Intro. Ready for this to finally be over

So we had our first ultrasound on 11/3 and found an empty gestational sac with no fetus. We decided to wait a few days and recheck HCG levels to see if they were rising or falling, found them falling... Took misoprostal on 11/14 and thought I had passed everything within a few days. I have done labs a few more times to keep watching the HCG fall but it's still not reached zero. Now it's nearly 4 weeks since having taken the pills and I'm still lightly bleeding (steadily red with clotting), so my doctor wanted me to go for another ultrasound. I had the ultrasound today and they say the sac is gone and walls of my uterus look good but I still have a substantial amount of clotting stuck inside.
So all that to say, I wish I would have done D&C to begin with. I am so tired of being in limbo and I just want this to be over already.

Re: Intro. Ready for this to finally be over

  • I'm sorry for your loss, I was in the same situation with bleeding after miscarriage and had a D&C last week. I hope you can have your D&C soon so you can try to move on.
  • I am sorry for your loss and so sorry that it's lingering. I hope it ends soon for you *hug* 
    I am not sure how to say this without getting a "solicitation" warning so I guess I just say that I am not longer active on THIS site.

  • So no D&C yet, they said I should try methylergonovine to try and induce it first. Next week will have another ultrasound and blood draw to see if it works. I started taking it last night so fingers crossed...
  • I hope it passes quickly, keep us posted! *hug*

  • I'm praying it passes quickly for you as well. I'm so sorry you're having a tough time waiting for the mc to end.

  • Sport for your loss, I think it is very hard when it seems to be never ending. Lots of hugs to you.
  • I am so sorry for your loss...I too feel the same way as you...

    I too feel that my body is not allowing me to move on, which in turn is preventing me from moving on emotionally..As of right now, I tried to do the M/C naturally, which didn't work, took the pill to help the process speed up which also didn't work, and just had a D & C a little over a week ago. I am still bleeding however, and passing tissue... (My doctor wants to wait until after the holiday to see if we should do anything else)...

    But I understand the thought of you just wanting it to be over...I feel the same way at this point... :(

    Sending hugs and thoughts your way. My husband keeps telling me the end is near...I am hoping that both of us will be able to move on soon.
