Question about D&C
Sat, 10-29-2011 - 8:59am
I'm not really sure where to post this, so I hope this is the right spot.

I am not TTC yet, but will be back here when my cycle returns. I posted here a little bit this summer, I had an early m/c in July at 4w4d, followed by a chemical pg in August. I gotta BFP on Sept 21. Everything was going well for a while, then I started some spotting. To make a long story short, we were in limbo for 2 weeks with a baby measuring behind with a slow heart rate. This Wednesday u/s finality confirmed that the heartbeat was gone.

Here is my question, my D&C was yesterday at 8w3d. I haven't had much bleeding at all? Not that I'm complaining, but I expected it to be worse. Is this normal??

Thanks in advance :) We hope to start TTC again as soon as doc gives us the okay, which I'm hoping is sooner rather than later.

When I had my D&C last year, the OB said she had to give me an extra shot of metho-something to stop the excessive bleeding. She said since I got the medicine, not to expect much if any bleeding. I didn't have a single spot for 46 days.

I didn't have much bleeding at all until about 5 days post d&c then I had cramps and some heavy bleeding for 3-4 days followed by few weeks of spotting. I was 7.5 weeks at time of my d&c. Sorry about your losses. Take this time to take care of yourself.
