Hi all this was my first miscarraige and I was almost 5 weeks went in to see the dr because of bleeding and he said my levels were showing not being pregnant now so they thought it was def mc all hcg levels showed the same thing so I was sent home told to rest up and now I have to go back there on the 18th for an exam i guess, I didnt need to have a d&c i guess because I was so early does this sound right or will I be told about a d&c at the next visit ? Im so lost right now I really dont know how to feel or even what to expect the dr's were not much help. Thank you for letting me vent my confusion out.
So sorry for your loss. I don't know what to say about the D&C. Maybe you dr. is waintong to see if your body will take care of it naturally. D&C's are not fun, well nothing about what you are going through is fun. Hang in there. This is a great place to ask questions, vent and get emotional support.
From what i have learned from the girls here, if your HCG levels were back to zero then you won't need to have a D&C. If your body didn't take care of things itself then your levels probably wouldn't have fallen back. I don't know what you should expect from your appointment though. Perhaps someone else will be able to offer advice on that.
Again honey, i am sorry you have had to seek us out, but it's a great place to come for support at such a difficult time.

I am so sorry for the loss of your baby
Every doc is different in regards to what they will do, during a check up after an early loss....
Some will check your levels through blood testing...Others will check you out via ultrasound...And others will do an internal to see that all is going back to the way it was prior to pregnancy....make sure infection is not present...discuss any physical limitations...exercising, intimacy, ttc again...
If you are having difficulty with your feelings...you have come to the right board ...Post about whatever they may be...Even if your post seems to make no sense to you....it will to many of us...I am hoping we will be able to help you to work through them...
Try and just focus on today. This will be enough for you to handle
I am so very sorry for your loss. This is the right place to be to let things out and to get advice, reassurance, or just a shoulder to cry on. I am sorry that you have a need for a board like this, but I am so very thankful that you found it. I wish you peace and serenity.
I was 11 1/2 weeks with my loss and did not have a D&C. It took a while for my levels to go down but I preferred the natural route. I'm guessing the appt will be for an hcg check and to see how you are doing in general.
Hugs. I am so sorry for your loss. I would agree with pp. If your levels are down, then you would not have need of a d&c. My levels were going nowhere, so after a few weeks I chose a d&c. If you can do it naturally, it really is better.
This board of women are fabulous. They have helped me immensely with answering questions and being emotional support.
