    I’m so sorry for your loss. I’m glad the procedure went well. It’s nice to read non-traumatic hospital stories.

    Best of luck for the future xx

    Thanks for sharing this. I also had a D&C last year for a loss at 9 weeks. Mine was under sedation as opposed to general anesthesia. I do not remember a thing and recovery was just light to moderate bleeding with menstrual-like cramping.

    Thanks for sharing this. I know that women do worry terribly about D and Cs. One of my friends and one of my family members also had a D and C after a missed miscarriage, and they said that the process was not nearly as traumatic as they thought it would be.

    Hope you have a speedy recovery, and that you have a healthy pregnancy soon!

    OliveFinn:  I’m glad everything went well. As shitty as it is having to have a D&C, I also chose to have one earlier in the year and it went very smoothly as well. I think it’s faster  to be able to move on physically and emotionally. Wishing you the best. ((Hugs))

    First off, again,  I am so sorry for your loss.

    But secondly, I really want you to know how completely awesome it is of you to share this. I have been lucky enough to not have gone through this, but if I had I know I would never be selfless enough to share my experience with the world solely to help other women.  I really think this was brave, although I know that might sound cheesy! 

    I’m so glad you were surrounded by kind people. Please take good care of yourself,  and FX your next hospital story you post on the bee is about the birth of your rainbow baby!

    OliveFinn:  Again, I’m so sorry for your loss, it is incredibly unfair.

    I am glad to hear that your D&C was not a terrible experience and that the staff surrounding you was kind. Get lots of rest. I am thinking of you.

    I also had a D&C at 11 weeks that was not bad. Losing the baby was awful of course, but the procesure itself was fine and I actually felt so much better after it was completed. Thank you for talking about this.

    I had a D&C at 11 weeks almost three years ago. The D&C was not too bad, I actually woke up from the anesthesia really alert and not in pain. I seemed to surprise the nurse in recovery who came to check on me and ound me laying there awake and calm.

    I was really nervous going in to surgery, but my local hospital was fantastic. Due to the nature of why I was there they gave me my own room instead of being in with all of the other outpatient surgeries. They allowed Fiance to stay with me until I went to the OR and they provided me with two nurses that run a local pregnancy loss support group for my after care before going home. 

    Whats funny is our local rural hospital is the butt of many jokes, but I always tell people that they can say what they want about it but I have never had a hospital experience like my D&C. It should have been awful and they did everything just right.

    nygirla:  Dilation and curettage. It’s a sensitive topic, so I don’t want to explain it, but if you google you’ll find a definition/description of the surgery.

    I also just had a D&C (I was supposed to be 8 weeks, but the baby was only measuring 5w5d, and follow up ultrasound showed an even smaller baby, still no heartbeat) last week and wish I could have seen your post before! Thank you for sharing, I hope it will help others who have to go through this unfortunate experience. I was terrified, but also thought the procedure was physically very easy. In the last week I’ve had some cramping and bleeding, but it’s been very manageable. I am glad I chose this route as the closure helped me start to heal emotionally. Hugs to you.

    tinapo85:  I’m glad to hear they were so sweet and accomodating. My nurses were also wonderful and hugged me/cried with me. That type of compassion is so necessary during this type of experience. One of my anesthesiology nurses went to the in-hospital chapel after to pray for me/the baby. It was much appreciated.

    OliveFinn:  I’ve been thinking of you the last couple days, hoping this procedure would/did go as painlessly as possible for you. I’m so glad to hear the procedure was physically easy, and the nurses and doctor so compassionate.
