Here is my personal story.
I had my D&C today and I'm so glad I did it. I was feeling horrible physically and emotionally since Thursday when we got the news that it was not a viable pregnancy. Mine was a missed miscarriage, I had no cramps or bleeding and no clue anything was wrong. My doctor told me I could wait for my body to take over, but that can take weeks. For my own sanity I needed this over, I needed relief from this. I did not want to to do the pills for many reasons, but it was not for me.
No food or drink after midnight was really the worst part. I still have excessive thirst and M/S from the continued tortuous preggo symptoms. I felt so sick waiting for my pre-op. They called me back and started an IV drip for fluids. Once I went back I was out in seconds and then woke up. No pain and I remember nothing. I had cramping when I woke up but it's gotten better and I have meds. I have light bleeding, but it's not horrible. They did give me and antibiotic in my IV and I hear thats pretty common. They said the pregnancy symptoms will slowly taper off. I got the Rhogam shot bc I'm RH-.
I was woozy but came to quickly. I got ice chips, then juice and graham crackers. I literally felt better right away. I can't explain it but it was such a relief. I know I have a journey from here, but now I can start healing and start having hope.
I hope this story helps someone, as all your stories and support helped me.
I go back in 2 weeks for post appointment. Doctor said to wait for 1 period to try again.
