Hey ladies - So two weeks ago today we discovered our little one had no heartbeat, and I had a D&C that same day. I've been spending a lot of time on this board and it has helped me so much!
I see lots of posts here about upcoming D&C's or "is this normal?" questions for after, but not many check-ins. I hope I'm allowed to start one!
Anyway, if you've had a D&C sometime in the past, how are you doing now? I'll start.
When was your D&C: Two weeks ago today.
How are you feeling physically: Mostly fine. I'm still very tired every day (naps after work are the norm!). I've also been dealing with weird bleeding - there's no schedule to it! I'm fine for days, then have a random day of heavy cramps and bleeding, then nothing again for days.
How about emotionally: I went back to work 5 days post D&C, and am managing. I am struggling to keep up with my workload - I just zone out frequently. I'm not breaking down in tears anymore, but I just mentally shut down for long periods of time. Can't snap out of it. I only told one person at work in addition to immediate family and a few close friends, so at least I am not bombarded with sympathy and/or questions. On the other hand, it's very hard having this huge sadness and trying to keep it from everyone. What a weird place to be.
Share some happy: So, I've been hinting to DH for a while now that I think we should take dance lessons. He was predictably unenthusiastic. But for my birthday last week, he surprised me by signing us up for a ballroom dance class! Our first class was yesterday, and it was great. He even enjoyed it - although I'm not supposed to tell anyone that.
