D and C advice wanted

Postby PhDer » Wed May 06, 2015 9:39 pm

Hey everyone

My name is Lisa and my husband and I had been trying for our first child for 3 months. Got a positive pregnancy test the weekend after Easter at 10DPO. Bit of spotting at 12DPO which I thought was implantation. Beta's were doubling well. Started to have pregnancy symptoms such as migraines and breast tenderness. At 6w5d had my first scan which showed a heartbeat and baby measuring 6w3d. My husband and I were overjoyed at the expected arrival of our first child a few days before Christmas.

However, at 6w6d I started bleeding. Went to emergency. Bloods indicated betas were within levels for 6 weeks, the next day on an US they found a hematoma but the baby's heart was still beating. However the next day cramps and bleeding intensified.

Today I got confirmation that the beta levels have decreased and there is no longer a fetal heartbeat but there is still a gestational sack. I am in a lot of pain and I just want this all to be over so I can think about our rainbow baby. I don't know if this warrants a DnC. The gynae cannot get me in until another week . I am seeing my GP this afternoon but unsure if he can prescribe me misoprostal or if that is only a gynae thing.

Just wanting to hear from others who had miscarriages around this time and what they did and how it went for them

Thanks

Went for the d and c because although I was bleeding and cramping it was becoming drawn out and they were concerned about infection. Had the procedure yesterday and still cramping but bleeding is light
