Had my D&C this afternoon and that was the hardest thing to go through. What made it harder was 1 of the nurses decided to talk to the lady next to me about babies and children. How can someone be so insensitive to others. If that nurse would have been closer to me I probably would have slapped the nonsense out of her. My nurse was rushing to get me out of there. I am already dealing with the lose of my baby I should not have to deal with the nurses crap as well. When I see my RE in 2 weeks I will be discussing this with them. I would hate to see someone else have the experience I had to go through.

On the other hand I am glad it is over and I can start the healing process. We decided not to send the baby for chromosomal testing as my insurance would not cover it and it would cost me an additional 1200. Plus there was only a 40% chance they could tell me what happened. God forbid I would go through this again I would send for the chromosomal testing. I am not sure when we will try again. There are some things I need to take care of for me and would like to lose some weight before I go through this again. We will probably try on our own for awhile even though I know it will not work.

I wish everyone the best and hope everyone has a good holiday. I am not sure when I will be back to the broad as I will be taking a break for awhile. Thanks everyone for the support. It has really help me along the way.

Katrina,

I am so sorry about everything. How incredibly insensitive of that nurse! I probably would have told my nurse to say something. I hope you take this time to heal mentally and emotionally.

Tons of love and prayers to you.

So sorry about the nurse! When I had my ectopic surgery, my DH just almost came to blows the ER doct (not really, but he was MAD). The doc sits down all happy go lucky and proceeds to tell me about a friend of his who had 3 miscarriages and now has 3 kids...fan-freaking-tastic...did it take them 2.5 years to even get pregnant? Does that mean I can look forward to 2 more experiences like this? I started bawling and DH apparently gave the doc a look and he quickly left the room. He was soooo insensitive. I think it was more the tone, like "don't worry, everything will be fine"...no, it won't. Everything is NOT fine. I still get angry when I think about him. I told my RE about it and they said that the ER docs tend to be very insensitive about it b/c they do not understand the infertility stuff...jerk!

That's is unfortunate about the nurse being so insensitive.

Katrina,

I agree with everyone else, that Dr's need more training in their bedside manners.
