d&c

So I had my d&c today. Everything so far has went very smoothly. I was in surgery at 12 and headed home from recovery at 1:30. My doc said everything went good. I had slight cramping when I woke up took some ibuprofen and don't even feel like menstrual cramps. A little bleeding nothing heavy though. Mostly just getting over the anesthesia. My doc gave me some methergen to take for four doses to help the uterus clamp down and some antibiotics to prevent infection. Overall having had a natural m/c and now this I would choose this. Hopefully my levels will go down soon and I can get back to feeling normal. I have about 10-15 lbs of bloat and junk food to get rid of so hopefully when I am feeling better I can start running and lifting again to help my mental status. I already feel like I am at least moving forward now that this is done. DH and I were already planning on going on vacation this week so we will probably leave sun or Mon for some beach time. Was going to tell some family about the pg this trip but guess this was not meant to be the time.......I just have to keep telling myself it will happen though someday! Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers. It meant a lot knowing all you really knew what I am going through. I will probably be away from the board a while for an emotional break since I have to heal anyways. Good luck to everyone this and next month. Hope you are all gone when I get back:)

Big hug Andi, I would choose a d&c if I have a next time too, my natural was hell. I will be thinking of you as you heal both physically and emotionally, it is a hard time but sounds like you are starting the process well. Enjoy that vaca, the beach is where we went too while I was having mine, it was a beautiful place to be and I found a little baby shell while walking on the beach, it now sits on our mantle inside our sand blending vase from our wedding, I put it there durinig the cermony. =)

It sounds like you have a great plan for returning to mental health after your loss. I think exercise and beach time are perfect. I'm glad they gave you antibiotics so you avoid the endometritis I had. Take a break and we'll be here when you get back.

Andi...again, I'm so sorry for your loss. :( I kwym abdout the D & C. I don't think I could've waited mine out either. My body will hang on to it forever anyway. Still, It's never an easy thing to go through, emotionally and mentally.

It's so good that you and your husband are getting away for a bit. You need it. Hope you get a super sticky BFP, when you're ready to TTC again.
