Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Another first loss

Doesnt look like I'm alone here. I'm 8 weeks by measurements, 9 weeks from LMP. I just found out that there's no heartbeat (strong one a week ago) and that baby stopped growing a few days ago. My OB gave me all the options. I'm going in for a d&c tomorrow. I've been miserably nauseated for 5 weeks, I just need that to stop. I'd love any advice or suggestions. I'm so, so sad, but at the same time, numb. I've been dealing with a large SCH and the roller coaster has just worn me out. At least it's coming to an end and hopefully the next time will be easy.

Re: Another first loss

  • I'm very sorry you are going through this.  My current loss was very much a rollercoaster the entire time so I sympathize with you there for sure.

    I think how quickly you start to feel normal again really depends on how high your levels are.  There is definitely a dramatic drop once everything has passed or been removed.  I hope all goes well tomorrow and that you start feeling better very soon.

    I have found these board to be a tremendous comfort after my losses.

  • I am sorry for your loss.  I had a d&c as well.  I didn't really need them, but was glad to have on hand some larger pads--the overnight ones--to wear when I was in bed after I got home, and I think I may have changed into one at the hospital since the pad they provided was massive.  Other than that, just try to take care of yourself as best you can--let yourself grieve and try to rest, especially after the surgery.

  • Hi again, It seems like today was a bad day for us. I hope things go well for you tomorrow and you feel ok. If mine doesn't pass natural by morning, ill be having my d&c tomorrow too due to clotting issues. Its not easy ever but we will get past this, we will try again, and remember our little 8 week babies.

    Good Luck. Let me know how things go, and Ill do the same 
  • I am sorry for your loss. As best you can try to take care of yourself. Even though it sucks it is okay to feel sad. It took me a couple weeks to feel more normal. this is a safe place to talk about how you are feeling without other judging you. I know i had a hard time talking to some people bc I would get emotional or I could tell they felt uncomfortable. 
  • @glitter, been thinking about you all day.

  • I am so very sorry for your loss. 
  • @a2003tiger Yep, same here. I hope tomorrow goes well. Post when you can so we know how everything went. Ill do the same.
  • So sorry for your loss and I hope things start to move quicker for you!  I felt really numb until it was really all over and I have been able to grieve a little easier as hard and painful as the realization was I was relieved to start moving forward. so sorry its such a rollercoaster for you.
  • I'm so sorry.  I had a very similar situation.  I hope everything goes well today and I completely understand the part about feeling numb.
