D&C question. scared help please

Postby creative_cutie » Thu Jan 21, 2010 5:01 pm

I opted to wait a few days to see if the m/c started naturally. I go in for my appt tomorrow and my next options are to take a medication that is inserted into the vagina or go for a D&C. My mother is a RN and she think I should go for a D&C but I'm a bit terrified. however she has scared me of hemmoraging and going into shock if I have a miscarriage naturally. I had a natural m/c back in october and had no issues but the m/c started right away.

What were your experiences with a D&C?

Again, I'm so sorry for your loss.

I had a d&c Tues and it was sooooo much easier than I thought it was going to be. The morning of the d&c, I was starting to m/c and was having horrible cramps and tons of bleeding. After the d&c, I had no pain and very little bleeding. I rested the next day, but had no pain at all and today I resumed my normal activities, for the most part. I'm a bit tired, but that's it.

I had a natural m/c about 5 years ago and it was so painful. It was like the beginning stages of labor and I didn't want to go through it again. The d&c was so much easier, plus I wanted it to be over. I didn't want the m/c to drag on, not to mention all the bleeding and having to see it everytime I went to the bathroom (sorry, tmi).

You have to decide what's best for you, but don't be scared of a d&c b/c it isn't painful at all. GL with whatever you decide.

Thank you so much Laura and I'm sorry for your loss as well. I guess there weren't destined to be any August 26th babies this year. :(

The link in my siggy to my blog has a long post in November about my D&C experience. Hopefully that will alleviate any fears becuase I had no idea what to expect and was pretty terrified.

So sorry hun :(

I had two babies due aug 24th both which i lost and 2 babies due feb 14th one who is two today and one who will hopefully be here on the 8th.

With the first baby we found out at 12 week scan bub had died and as it had been 4 weeks already i had a DandC..i couldnt stop bleeding but had an injection adn i was fine.. the whole experience was awful of course but nowhere near as bad as i thought it would be.. with the second loss i had a natural mc ...no cramps and things but bleeding wen ton for a week almost and for me would much have preferred another DandC:(

I'm so sorry for your loss..esp the timing as i know i still think of my aug babies often.
