I am truly sorry for your loss :bigarmhug:

I had a D&C in Feb & I was put under so I wasn't able to drive. I don't think you will be able to but your doctor should provide you with a list of do's and dont's & should discuss in detail with you, what will take place & what you could expect to happen.
I am glad that you're getting a 2nd Beta done, just to be sure.

I am so sorry for your loss :comfort:

I agree with the pp. Do not have a D&C, or a meth injection, unless you feel comfortable about going forward...as you do not want to second guess your decision later..

Please let us know how all goes?

You are in my thoughts...

I agree with pp about not having a D&C unless you are comfortable doing so. Give your body time to try to m/c on its own. I am opting for a D&C because my HCG levels were at 24, 000 Friday and only dropped to 20,500 by Monday. At that rate it would take weeks for me to m/c on my own, and DH and I want to start trying again as soon as possible. Just do what's right for you. I don't think you can drive after the D&C, whether or not you have an office procedure or hospital.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

You def. can't drive after D&C. Have your doc recheck your numbers to see how they go down. If you can avoid surgery, then do so. I had to have surg. with all of mine, but that is because I have 2 uterus, so it gets complicated!

KUP & I will keep you in my thoughts.
