Miscarriage & Still Birth Message Board


Miscarriage & Still Birth Board Index


I've had 2 miscarriages. The first one I let happen naturally after I found out we'd lost the fetus at 9 weeks. The 2nd at 10 weeks, I had a D&C. I would definitely recommend the D&C. For some people, including me, the natural way was VERY physically painful and took about 48 hours to be completed. It was the worst thing I've ever been through. I had dealt with the emotional pain okay but it all came rushing back when I was faced with the physical pain again.
The D&C took 10-15 minutes and I was under anesthetic the entire time and it was so much easier to cope with both mentally and physically.
I guess you could call it a Missed Miscarriage for me also. I went in with my first pregnancy at 12 weeks for my reg checkup and to finally hear the heartbeat, they couldn't find one with the doppler handheld device. They took me to Ultrasound and there was no blood going through the baby at all. No sign of heartbeat. They measured the baby and it only was as big as a 9 week fetus is. So my baby died when I was 9 weeks along. My body didn't reject it, no abnormal sign of cramping or bleeding. They asked me what I wanted to do. I waited a week to see if I'd miscarry and still didn't and I had to have a D&C and that was the hardest thing I ever had to go through.

I don't think I could have labored it though, but talk to your wife or s/o and see what she wants too do.
