Hello all, Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Elle I am 27.
This past Thursday at my 12 week scan I found out we had lost the baby. There was no heartbeat on the U/S, I had a missed miscarriage. The cause is not known. It was shocking - we had no signs and I had thrown up just that morning and was still having terrible morning sickness. The next day I had a D&C. It was a rough physical recovery this past weekend but I suppose now it is mostly the emotional recovery I am worried about.
I feel pretty lost and somehow the world seems like a different place. I have a doctors appointment for next Monday - I am hoping to find out how soon we can start trying again. . .
I am so very sorry for your loss and what you are going through. Different doctors have you wait different amounts of time. If you ask them at your appointment they will tell you how long they think you should wait. Good luck!
Some doctors ask you to wait a cycle post DnC and some ask you to wait more. With a DnC I was told that the reason for waiting was so that your lining could build up good and strong again. I was told with a natural miscarriage that sometimes you don't always have to wait a cycle especially if it was earlier on. A lot of doctors also recommend waiting for emotional reasons, so the family can grieve, etc.
I hope your appt on Monday goes well and you don't have to wait long.

Sorry to hear about what you've had to go through. I had a d&c two months ago, also for a missed m/c. I was absolutely heartbroken and completely understand when you say you see the world a little differently now. I feel like my heart has a scar on it now...but I am trying to stay positive and hoping it's true what they say about all things healing with time!
Sending good thoughts your way and hoping things turn around for you soon!
Thanks ladies! Your posts mean a lot to me. I think the healing process has begun and I dont feel so hopeless now. I am actually really looking forward to meet with my doctor on Monday and discuss when we can start trying again.
