Doctor confirmation of miscarriage

Postby littabuff » Tue Apr 23, 2013 9:28 pm

I was able to get into my doctor today after beginning to bleed this morning at 6w4d. She was able to confirm miscarriage through ultrasound and inspection of what I was passing. I was so unprepared for the rollercoaster ride of emotions after the visit! One minute I was folding laundry, the next I was a sobbing blob laid out on the floor! I then had a desperate need to name my angel baby and collect all of the positive pregnancy tests I had saved with him/her into a little box with my baby's name on the outside. I don't know what I'm going to do with my box yet, but I just needed to do it. Now I lay here, hurting not only emotionally, but from the medicine she gave me to help my uterus "clamp down". I am just a mess right now....

Thank you Care so much for responding. I am so sorry for your loss! I finally took the last of the pills that are supppsed to make me cramp, so maybe the physical hurting will be over soon. Its so helpful to be able to talk to others who have been through this. Some people feel like they have to offer you some type of explanation or such along with "I'm sorry". I know they mean well, but when all is still so fresh....it hurts a little. I pray you are felling well.

Thanks!

So sorry for your loss, littabuff! It's rough going through it, but I promise with time it gets better. My first mc was brutal. It took me quite a while before I felt completely normal again. Physically I recovered quickly, but emotionally I was very unbalanced for months. I was 12 weeks, so your hormones should balance out a little faster than mine did. My recent one was 5 1/2 weeks, and I haven't had any hormonal issues hanging on past the first few weeks. Give yourself time to grieve your loss.

So sorry hun, I had my miscarriage last week at 6w1d. My boobs even still hurt....which is just wrong! The worst thing people have said to me is "Miscarriages are common" One of my best friends even said that. It's not even worth a response because none of these people have had a miscarriage. "Be easy on yourself" my Dr. told me this last week and it stuck with me...because I was def going down the "What did I do" road.

It doesn't matter if they're common, it still SUCKS! And nobody talks about it, so even though it's common, you feel incredibly alone.

I wish I'd heard your dr's advice after my first mc. I spent years blaming myself for that one.
