Our 2 ultrasounds showed that our baby stopped growing at 6 weeks even though I should be 9.5 weeks now. My heart is absolutely broken but I’m not crying every 20 minutes today so I guess that’s something. My husband is struggling to talk about it and trying to stay tough and bounce back to everyday stuff but yesterday he was feeling physically sick, hot and nauseous which we think is definitely a stress response.
I was giving it a few days to happen naturally and I’m wearing pads everyday but the bleeding has been very mild for nearly 10 days now so it seems like I’m going to need the D&C.
I have the D&C scheduled for a couple days from now and I’m just curious what to expect.
If you’ve had one:
• Were any of you in pain after it? And for how long?
• Did you have trouble going to the bathroom?
• Trouble standing for extended periods?
• How long before you could go back to work (I have a 9-5 cubicle job)?
I’m just sad and scared. So sorry that we’re all in this group but really appreciate that this community exists, certainly makes this whole nightmare less lonely.
