Just found out..

I found out this morning that my baby's heart stopped last week at 9w1d.  The last U/S picture I saw won't leave my head, it was just so cute and perfect. 

I'm going to talk to an MD tomorrow about a D&C (I saw the midwife today).  I just wanted any advice on what to expect since I've never had to deal with this before.  Has anyone else had a D&C and can tell me what it was like for them?

     Mine was pretty simple. They knocked me out, cleaned me out, woke up with a little bleeding and that was it.

     I have not really, I was induced and delivered..but they did need to go in for the placenta...so kinda dnc. You will most likely be put out for it..not for sure. You probably will be a little sore afterwards and will probably have very little bleeding. I think it is pretty quick and I believe you go home the same time, no hospital stay or anything.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Thinking of you

    I had it. After dealing with a pregnancy that was strange from the beginning I decided to have the d&c. I waited weeks to miscarriage on my own and it didn't happen. The d&c was very easy. They knocked me out and a second later I was awake and well. All the drs and nurses were EXTREMELY nice and comforting. I went home and spent 3 days in bed but hardly had any pain or bleeding. I was just upset.

    I still feel bad but when I woke up from the surgery I felt this overwhelming calming feeling. I thought it was wrong to feel this way but at the same time I went through a very rough 8 weeks. I had ultrasound every 5 days for 5 weeks to check for growth...there was a just a little but not enough...then waiting to miscarriage. Plus getting my hopes up at every ultrasound thinking there was hope. I think internally I was happy that I was free to mourn and get on with my life (which had basically stopped while going through all this).

    Im so sorry for your loss. Feel free to message me if you have any questions. **hugs**

    Thank you.  The midwife did tell me they would put me to sleep for it.  But beyond that I really don't know anything about it.  Thanks for answering my questions.

    ((hugs)) I am so sorry for your loss hun.  I didn't have a d&c so I can't really tell you what to expect but I hope everything goes smoothly.

    I'm so sorry for your loss.  I had a D&C in January, I was also 9 weeks .  It was really not too bad.  I was awake for it, I had it in the office, my husband was with me.  They gave me Valium, Antibiotics, and Pain Meds to take prior to the procedure, and used a local.  I can't tell you there wasn't some discomfort, but the entire procedure took maybe 20-30 minutes, and within an hour of my appt, we were almost home.  The recovery was very easy. They gave me pain meds, but I didn't need to take anything other than Ibuprofen.  I had very light bleeding for about 10-12 days.
