Body Changes after Missed M/C D&C

Hi Girls!

First let me express how sorry I am for all of your losses, I never realized just how hard this would be :( :(

I was 11 weeks 2 days, so beside these awful emotions, i am still walking around like I am pregnant, I have a pushed out stomach. I dont fit into any clothes and my boobs are still up two sixes. Its like a constant reminder :(

Do you girls know when our bodies go back to normal, or if we just have to take the weight off ourselves???

Best of luck to everyone, you are all in my hearts.

  • Hi Simone- I am only on day 12, but my boobs have gone down considerably(they were HUGE) and I actually tried on jeans yesterday :(  I am down 10 of the 14 that I put on in the past 19w2d. I think most of it came off b/c I had no appetite, but I also started walking 3+ miles a day. I hate exercise, but find walking alone with my iPod very therapeutic. It will come off of you too and I know it is such a crappy reminder, but give it a few weeks. :)
  • So sorry for your loss.

    My boobs have not gone back to normal and it's been almost 6 months.  But the bloat went away in about a week or so.

  • My boobs didn't change too much even during PG, so there was nothing to "go back down to".

    However, I was rocking the belly bands before (I was close to the end of 1st tri when I had my d&c), and I could start zipping up my jeans again about 3 weeks later.

  • I've been wondering the same thing. My boobs have really grown (as has my tummy and overall weight). I was not allowed to exercise in my first trimester due to regular daily spotting & some other concerns.... I want to get fit and ready to try again. I had a D& this past Thursday when I would have been 12w6d.

    When can I start to exercise? More than walking, I mean? Right away?

  • I was 7w6d but had a ton of symptoms: bloat, huge sore boobs, nausea. Bloat gone in 2 days, nausea gone in 3-4 days, and boobs soft, smaller, and not sore by 10 days. It was a gradual process and I was earlier than many of you. I remember those first 2 days missing my be band, I had a ton of bloating and it had been nice to just stick out my stomach because I was pregnant not fat.
