New to the board considering this is my first loss. I am having a D&C today and i am nervous about being put under more than anything because i have never been put under. My husband and i have some comfort in knowing that it was a Blighted ovum and there was no baby started just the sac and the yolk sac. I have my up and down days Tues (our u/s appt) i was a mess and i took wed off work because i was a mess yet again after my progesterone level came back low at 4.2. I went back to work yesterday to get my mind off things and it worked i was in a better mood. Today im 50 50. I am happy to know i can get preg just being so close it heart breaking. This site has given me so much support i am glad to have a loss section to, to know that that im not alone. If anyone ever wants to chat im here, i feel communicating is the best way to work through this.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I had a D & E last week and I was under. I was actually happy that I was because I didn't "know" what was going on. A friend of mine was awake for hers and she said it was terrible.

I totally agree with you about talking or writing about it. It is unbelievable to talk to people and hear about what they have went through. This is a great place for support!

So sorry to hear it!
I had a D&C as well, but then I'd been under a couple different times so I wasn't nervous about that. Don't worry, you will be just fine, in my experience they have an anesthesiologist in the room the whole time and his job is just to monitor you and how much anesthesia you're getting to make sure your vitals are just right. So you have someone watching you the whole time while the rest of the team works on you.
I hope you can heal quickly and that you feel like you can post here anytime you want to. We're here for you and we have shared similar experiences so we can relate. You're not alone!

Thanks Ladies,
As weird as this might sound, i feel ok. I had it so much worse in my head and now that its over im better. I am happy to know we can start trying again in 2 months (although i am not good at the waiting game, but we will see i work for a dr office and hate people that dont follow orders!) I was told to take food slowing after i got home, start with soups and such but i had not eaten since 8pm the night before so that did not make me happy. I ate and im doing alright. again not as bad as i thought. We will continue to go on with our lives and try again. Thanks ladies for listening

I'm glad the procedure wasn't as bad as you thought it would be. The waiting is so hard and feels like forever, but it is good to take the break to grieve and allow your body some time to heal physically, too. Feel free to post as much as you want here. We all understand and are here for you.
