i was supposed to be 9 weeks and 4 days but the dr told me at my third attempt at my first ultrasound the baby was measuring only 7weeks and 2 days and no heartbeat... i had the d&c friday morning(5 days ago) and i have been miserable since.

i don't know anyone who has been through this before so im looking for help here. of course the littlest things make me bawl my eyes out since we'd finally concieved but the physical pain is unbearable. my cramps keep me up all night even if i take the prescibed meds(caused me to have dreams of me being in pain), they're not only in my lower ab and pelvis but now my upper right hip has started to pulsate in pain. plus my bleeding has not slowed since the surgery. im not sure what a clot looks like(google was NO help) and i know its nasty but i keep having these dark chunks or really stringy blood. the dr is gone until thurs and i dont know where to turn. im scared something is wrong

please any help or advice would be amazing right now... & again sorry if it was too graphic

I'm so sorry for your loss. I had a missed miscarriage at 10 weeks.
The advice I was given after I miscarried is that if I continued to bleed heavily (more than one pad/hour) or if I had severe pain to go to the hospital. You might need to just go into the hospital, and not wait for your doctor. From what it sounds like I'd head in if I was you. I'm so sorry your going through this.
ETA: the dark chunks seem like they are probably clots.

I just saw this. I'm glad to read that you're going to get checked out. I know I bled a lot after my d&c but I was further along and it did slow down over time. If you're bleeding a lot, there could be some tissue remaining. Also, you shouldn't be in that much pain. *hugs* I hope you're okay and that the doctor can help you. I'm so sorry for your loss.

So very sorry for your loss. I agree that the chunks sounds like blood clotts. Hope you are okay and we are here if you need someone to talk to. Hugs.
