I found out yesterday that my baby is no longer with us.
It was a 10 week check up there was no blood flow or heart beat.
I feel like its all my fault & my BD doesnt think its true, he keeps telling me to go to another doctor, I have a D and C friday can anyone tell me a little bit about it. the doctors started to but they have never been thru what im going thru.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I had the same thing happen to me at 12 weeks. The way they do the DnC in Australia is the will put this stuff on your cervix to get you dilating and then they will put you under and do the procedure. it done by s*****g the pregnancy tissue out. I bled for maybe 2 or 3 days after and had some cramping. i found it more emotionally painful then physically but that's me. Wishing you all the best and you are in my prayers.

Very sorry for your loss momma.
I had a D&C in October of 2011.
You will likely be put under for it and will wake up with period like cramping and bleeding.
They may do one more ultrasound right before to be absolutely certain.
Your period should return within 4 - 8 weeks but it's normal if it takes a bit longer.
You will be asked to refrain from sex and heavy lifting for at least two weeks after.
Best of luck.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. I had the same thing happen in December. I was a little over 10 weeks as well. I had a D&C 2 days later. The procedure in itself was painless. They put me under, and 20 minutes later, I woke up in recovery. I had some cramping for a few days, but was given painkillers, and then everything was okay.... physically at least.

The emotional part may take some work in dealing with. Please pm me anytime if you need to talk. Again, I'm so sorry.



I'll keep you in my thoughts today.
