I was in that exact same situation a few years ago.   I waited 10 or so days and opted for a D&C.  I was still having morning sickness and just wanted it all over with.    The D&C was quick and painless.  It took a month and a half to have my next cycle.

I’m so sorry you had to go through this. Hope you have a fast and smooth recovery. You said she, was she a baby girl? Sending healing thoughts.

I’m so sorry for your loss.  I think having a little ceremony would be a great way to say goodbye. How very special that you and your husband had the same name in mind.  I had 2 miscarriages after my first son and went on to have 2 healthy children later.  Give yourself time and rest.  Hugs!

Equine_Breeder :  So sorry for your loss and the pain you went through. I had a straightforward D&C in Jan and then for some reason my bleeding actually went from non-existent to period-like at the end of the first week after the procedure and I had intense painful cramps that made walking uncomfortable. Thankfully, the pain and bleeding subsided exactly a week after the procedure. My AF came back almost 6 weeks later and we’re back to trying for baby no.1. It’s really great that you are willing to share so much detail on your experience. I don’t think even doctors or nurses prepare you for what it’s like and I am sure many women will read this in the future and benefit from it. How thoughtful of you during such a difficult time!
