An update on me (x/p, m/c ment)

Hi ladies,

I just want to say thankyou so much for all your kind words and messages of support, they have really helped.
I havent been around for the past week as i have been laid up in bed with extreme vomiting and diarrhoea. Because of this i didnt have my D&C so i am booked in for tomorrow. I still have the diarrhoea and some vomiting so hope they will do it.
As for the emotional side of things, i feel ok one minute and the next i feel like i am back to square one. Im so scared im going to keep having more miscarriages. There are so many things around me that remind me of everything which i had and now i have lost.
I will keep you updated and let you know how tomorrow goes.
Thanks again for all your lovely lovely messages and advice - it really has helped.

I am so sorry for your situation and loss. I hope everything goes smoothly for you tomorrow. I thought I was fine too until I had my D/C. You will have a rollercoaster of emotions. I hope you find peace at some point.

I know exactly how you feel. I'm good one minute and the next I'm bawling my eyes out. Once the D&C is over, you will start getting better and better with each day. It's still hard and will more than likely hurt for some time, but you will make it through. Talk to your doctor about the possibility of other miscarriages. If there was no reason that they could pinpoint, then chances are it had nothing to do with your body, but just that something was not with the baby.

I will not let this discourage me from trying again. I don't know if I would be able to handle another MC, but I want to atleast try to have another child.

I hope and pray that all goes well with your D&C and that you start feeling better real soon. If you need anything, please, do not hesitate to contact someone...including myself.

KUP on how everything goes.

I'm sorry you're so sick in addition to the miscarriage. It must be awful dragging it out.
So many women go on to have healthy babies, I hope the best for you!

I'm sorry that you have to feel that way on top of everything else. I also just wanted to say that I am scared of having another m/c too. This was my first m/c, but I basically demanded that my OB order blood tests for clotting disorders and hormone imbalances (these tests are usually ordered after the second or third loss). I don't know all of your situation, you may have said, but if you haven't had the testing, maybe that is something you could do to ease your mind a little. I think the worry will always be there, but for me, I needed to rule out all that I could from the beginning. I've even started charting my temp and cycles to see if I can find something that may be wrong (many here can tell you about that if and when you're ready/interested). These may be things you don't even want to worry about right now, I know I didn't, but when you're ready, they may be options for you.

I know this is a very hard time for you and your family. Know that we are here and will continue to be. I will be praying for you. Take care of yourself.

I hope that you feel better soon. Not just for surgical reasons, but just because you have enough to deal with emotionally right now that physical problems are not a needed complication. The emotional roller coaster is one that you will be on for quite some time. I wish that I could tell you otherwise. I can only suggest that you allow the emotions to be fully experience when they come (as much as possible). We need to go through them to grieve and start to heal.

I am so very sorry for your loss.
