I experienced a MMC and underwent an induced delivery at 16 weeks about 3 months ago. As I grieve and make sense of what just happened, I've found I have a lot of questions about how my experience compares to other women in similar circumstances, but living in other states (I live in Indiana). I was originally given a choice between a second-trimester D&E and induced delivery, but I was then told by my OB that he wasn't comfortable with a D&E and so I had to be induced and deliver. Delivering a lost baby was the hardest most devastating thing I have ever experienced and, to be honest, since I have suffer from night terrors and anxiety. I guess I'm just really curious about your experiences and would be interested in hearing what you went through, if you're comfortable sharing. So, a few questions:
1. How far along were you?
2. What state do you live in?
3. How did you experience your miscarriage or stillbirth (occurred naturally, D&C, second-trimester D&E, induction & delivery, c-section, etc.)?
4. Do you regret the method that was used?
5. Did you have any complications?
Thank you, in advance, to anyone willing to share your experience with me. I'm not sure if it will help me find peace, but I hope so.
