I would not work during a miscarriage. I have had 2. One at 4 weeks and 1 at 7 weeks.. The one at 7 weeks for horribly painful
A friend if mine had a BO and nothing happened for weeks and she had a d and c. I'd probably wait it out and not work. I'd nothing happened I'd try something else liked meds or something before d and c. Hugs!
I had to take off a whole week. My doc usually prescribes painkillers because it's basically labor and you have the pains along with it. Ask your doctor how long they recommend you take off work. I was 6.5 weeks as well and the u/s looked more like 4 weeks. My first m/c 5 years ago I don't remember as well but I know I took at least 4 days off
I started spotting last night yesterday mornings ultrasound also showed about 4 weeks. I have to work tonight.
I went to the E.R. with my first at about 6 weeks for spotting and they told me I most likely had a blighted ovum because they could not see the fetal pole and my levels were really high so they should have seen the baby. I had an ultrasound a week later and there was the baby! I would not make any plans for d&c just yet..I think you could be just too early to see anything yet! Good luck!
I lost my last pregnancy at 11 1/2 weeks baby measured at 91/2. Never had spotting or any indication I lost pregnancy. Due to chance of infection had a d&c done. Im not going to lie it is not fun and dealing with the stress of losing your pregnancy doesn't help. They didn't get it all so I had to take pills to bleed out rest. I don't know if there is much you can do I know a d&c sucks but the sooner its done you can focus on getting healthy and waiting to try again
