I'm miscarrying naturally. I was told yesterday my hcg was only 35 and I should have been 8 weeks today. I don't think I need a d&c because they saw nothing on ultrasound and just told me to have my hcg retested. I won't be doing that either. Just one more reason for me to break down crying. I took a pg test today and it was neg so I guess my level is below 20 now.
It's the smell that really surprises me and makes me cry everytime I go to the bathroom and wipe away more blood. It smells just like my babies heads right after they were born. I loved to smell their heads and this miscarriage smells like that. I break down evertime. I'm sure my dh thinks I only cry in the bathroom now. I just hope it passes quickly. My kids just think im not feeling well and they are anxious to have their mom back. How long is it going to take? I have no one to share any of this with and am now wondering if i shouldnt be seeing a psychiatrist. Don't i just sound looney?
I see a counselor/psychiatrist. Sometimes its just what you have to do to get through this. You lost your child, you are grieving. I love new baby smell . I am so sorry that you are experiencing that as well as a m/c. You can share with us, we understand and are here for you.
As far as how long it takes... Its different for everyone. Hopefully it will pass quickly for you and you can find your new normal. Honestly things won't be the same, but you will find a new normal.
