    Default Ultra Sound didn't go well.. (m/c ment)

    It really sucks when you are going excited and with anticipation to see your baby for the first time..

    The ultra sound tech couldn't tell me much and wouldn't show me anything.. so I had to go home and call the dr...

    Apparently there was no fetal heartbeat and they think it stopped last week.. I've had no spotting or bleeding yet.. my doctor is calling it a miscarriage they made me an appoint on Tues to see my dr.

    I guess if it doesn't come out naturally I may need a d&c which I've never had done it scares me, is it going to hurt? I don't know what to expect.

    Me and Dh are really sad by this.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I went through the same thing nearly 3 months ago and it's so hard. I have had 2 D&Cs and they did not hurt. I was in more pain after waking up from the surgery. They will give you some medicine and put you to sleep. The procedure takes about 15 minutes and then they'll put you in recovery until you're ready to go home. Again, I'm so sorry If you have any questions about the D&C, you can always PM me

    I'm sorry for your loss. I don't have any experience with the D&Cs as all my m/c were early on and came "naturally". I just wanted to offer my condolences.

    I am so sorry. I had one d/c and one d/e. I had my d/c after delivering my 16 weeks old daughter. They could not get the placenta to deliver, no it did not hurt. I had a d/e for a miscarriage at 6 weeks, I did not want the miscarriage to happen naturally because I was so scared from the first loss. PM me if you need anything.

    Again I am so sorry.

    This is a great place to come when you need to just "feel."

    I'm so sorry for your loss. We're all here to listen.
    I had a d&c, it doesn't normally hurt very much. Mine went poorly, but my pregnancy was ectopic for all intents and purposes. A d&c for a uterine pregnancy shouldn't hurt much, expect some bleeding and a bit of cramping for a few days. A hot water bottle helps with the cramps. Depending on how early your loss is, you might have the option of a d&s, where a suction catheter is used rather than a sharp curette. Talk to you obgyn about what options you have, the suction is less traumatic to your uterus.
    Hope all goes as well as it can, sending hugs your way.

    That may be a bit late for a d&s, but talk to your obgyn to see if you have the option.

    Some places will put you to sleep, some will do a local anesthetic and a sedative or a spinal block (like an epidural but not a continuous feed) and a sedative. Whichever way, you'll be pretty out of it. You'll probably go home with some milder pain meds, I got tylenol with codene.
    I'm a medical student, haven't gone through my obgyn rotation yet, but once I knew that I had to have a d&c I read up and talked to the obgyns to find out all my options and all possible risks and complications. Feel free to PM me if you want to know anything else.
    Hope it turns out okay for you
