Miscarriage & Still Birth Board Index

What to expect??
Oct 24, 2008

I was 6 weeks pregnant with my second child. I started bleeding yesterday and went to the doctor today and confirmed via transvaginal ultrasound that I am miscarrying. (There was no fetal pole, just a sac high in my uterus) She also gave me a rogam shot because of my blood type, and took my blood to test hcg. (I'm coming back Monday to get another test to see if the levels are going down)

She said that I should miscarry on my own. I would have opted for the D&C but she said I should be able to do this without it because of how far along I am.

I'm confused. After reading all these boards on how prolonged and painful miscarriages are, and dangerous. I'm very nervous. I have a full time job that I'm in the position where it's extremely difficult to get any time off without notice and I am scared I'll end up in the ER because of infection or hemmoraging....

I don't know, the whole thing is just extremely sad for me and my husband. We had been trying for 9 long months and when we finally got pregnant it was like a heavy blanket was lifted. I somehow knew things weren't right though, I never "felt" pregnant and I just had a feeling things weren't going well, even before I had major symptoms.

However, after crying all day we are now trying to put this in perspective. I know it's all relative, but we were only 6 weeks along and the baby never really formed so it's better than some of you out there where my heart just hurts for you, where you had heard the heartbeat/felt the baby move, etc. I can't even imagine what you are going though. I guess miscarriage at any stage is a loss and there is grief and sadness......

Well, my question is that I'm very nervous about having this miscarriage. How long will it take before it's over? A coule days? Will it still be going on weeks and weeks from now?? How painfull is it? Is there a lot of blood? When can we start trying again? Since we were having problems concieving this time, will this miscarriage affect our chances of conceiving in the future?

We just want to get this over with and move on to try again......

Very nervous any comments are much appreciated!

Thank you so much.
