I had a miscarriage this past week. I started bleeding (red, but not a lot) on Wednesday, October 22. I had lots of bleeding and clots on Monday, Oct. 27th. They removed the fetal tissue that was "stuck" (not by a d&C, they could "reach it"). Bleeding has now slowed. It's a much longer story than that, but, I'm still in bed and I just want to get better. (I lost a lot of blood.) I have a few questions
When i remember my little one, what date do I use? We saw a heartbeat on Wednesday, October 1st. I found out there was no heartbeat on October 11th. I finished the miscarriage completely on Wednesday, October 29th. I still have light bleeding. (tmi?)
When will my cycle start again. What day do you consider Day 1? Is there one? I had been having 26/27 day cycles. I just don't want to be surprised when it comes. I'd like to have some idea of when to expect it.
I'm sure I'll have more questions. Thanks, in advance, for your help. I thought I couldn't cry anymore. I hope this gets better.
I'm so sorry you are going through this...lots of HUGS your way.
As for your memorial date, I would use whatever you feel in your heart. For me, I had one good ultrasound and 1 where there was no heartbeat. I use the date of my second ultrasound because up until then, I felt great, felt very pregnant and had no miscarriage symptoms. I didn't have a D&C for another 5 days but I felt that my baby was already gone by then. Hopefully some others will let you know what date they use too.
I read somewhere that I should consider my D&C date as cycle day 1. I'm still very much there with you. I haven't gotten my next cycle yet but from what everyone has told me, they say 4-6 weeks.
Hang in there...I am so sorry for your loss. I found lots of support on this board and hope that you will too.
Im so sorry hun! i considered my loss the day i found out i was having a miscarriage which was dec 21st of 2006, i also memorialize the day i found out i was pregnant which was november 21st, and what would have been my due date which is approaching and im having a hard time with that.That date is july 11th. That helps me remember my baby's approx.age! he/she would be almost two years old right now! So thats what i do, i hope i helped =)
