If it makes you feel any better(which it probably won’t because I know northing did when I went thru mine) i had a MC a month and a half ago aslo at 11 weeks. It was a natural micarriage and I didnt know it was happening until I saw the blood. Needless to say oit was a horrible time in our life since we wanted this baby more than anything and we had told everyone. What helped me a lot to deal with it a in an easier way was learning all I could on miscarriages, turns out they are very common in the first 12 weeks. Also reading stories of women who had gone thru the same process and have gotten pregnant withing months even weeks of having a miscarriage just make me hopeful for the future. Now I’ve had my first period after the MC and Fiance and I are ready to TTC again, I know I will soon get my rainbow baby and so will you!!!

 

HUGHS AND STAY STRONG!

 

In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison.

 

The storm (pregnancy loss) has already happened and nothing can change that experience. Storm-clouds might still be overhead as the family continue to cope with the loss, but something colourful and bright has emerged from the darkness and misery, a new baby. A Rainbow Baby.

@kamielynn:  Prayers and hugs! I have no words to express how sorry I am. This must be so terrible. I think we have the power to talk to our bodies to just reassure that everything will be ok. You will be ok, you are strong and know that there is a community here that supports and thinks of you. Blessings!

How is everything going now? What did your Dr. suggest? I hope this is all getting a little easier for you.  It took me about 2 and half weeks to miscarry. Waiting is the hardest part.  I decided to do it naturally as well. It was a long and hard waiting game but I’m so happy I let my body do what it needed to do.  I feel like I wasn’t able to start healing until the miscarriage was over.  Please keep us updated. We are all thinking about you! *Hugs*

@kamielynn:  I’m so sorry you’re still waiting for things to happen.  I just wanted to comment on taking Mistropol.  I had a missed MC back in Jan, and after a lot of discussion with my DH, I decided to take Mistropol rather than have a d&c.  I actually had to do 2 rounds because I didn’t pass everything the first time.  My doctor prescribed Vicodin, and instructed me to take 2 tablets with food 1hr prior to inserting the Mistropol, and to take 1 additional Vicodin every 4hrs as needed.  Even on Vicodin, I had horrible cramping that would sometimes make me freeze completely until they passed. She did also say I could take Motrin in addition if I felt I needed it, and I did.  I completely understand if you don’t feel comfortable taking pain medication if not needed, I just wanted to share my experience.  Both times I was very glad to have the Vicodin on hand.  I really hope you can heal and move forward.  I’ll keep you in my thoughts.

@kamielynn:  I know this isn’t easy, but when I was going through this, it was comforting, but also disheartening, to hear other people that had to go through the same thing, but it oddly made me feel less broken.  Everyone’s pain tolerances are different, and I admit mine is fairly low, although I can surprisingly deal with major pain much better than a paper cut!  I did a lot of research before deciding this was the best plan for us, and I read some really scary stories, but my dr put my mind at ease when she presribed the Vicodin.  If you have a low pain tolerance, it may be worth it to call your doctor back and ask for something stronger. Also, my dr told me I should start bleeding within 1-2hrs, but it was 7hrs later before anything started happening for me.  feel free PM me if you have any questions.

@kamielynn:  Hello, Kamielynn. I took four vaginal misoprostols and four advil. I put them in at eight and laid down. At nine I took the advil. At ten I began to gush a little with each shift. I didn’t want to be reminded of it while moving around, so I did it at bedtime and wore a huuuuge pad. It was a lot like going through labor, but because I knew it was this or d&c, I was “okay” with it. For me I passed a majority of the large clots within 24 hours of taking it and the majority of the pain was over night. I bled off and on for the next two week, heavy for the first few days then spotting, then I passed a smaller clot and bled again for a few more days.

It’s a horrible thing, but it’s the closest to natural as you can get when naturally doesn’t work. My heart is with you, know we’d all be there holding your hand if we could.

@kamielynn:  This is so heartbreaking:( You sound like a wonderful person and I wish this wasn’t happening to you, or to anyone. I think the detailed diary will be very helpful for anyone in your situation in the future. Sometimes it helps just to write feelings down on paper- a release from them being trapped in your mind. I hope everything turns out ok- physically and emotionally you are a strong person and you are in the thoughts and prayers of so many:) xo
