So awful to hear. :(  Having just been there I'm really, really feeling for you, mama.  Feel free to pm me if you just want to talk to someone.  Much love.

Thank you, hotsauce. 

 

I'm starting to grieve now, and so are the kids. It's hard. :(

I'm so so sorry, both for your loss and for such a traumatic and difficult medical experience to process too (one or other is hard enough).

 

I've had 4 losses, and luckily i've never needed a D&C.  I once bled as you describe but the ER we went to was so amazingly slow to respond that the bleeding had slowed to "heavy period" by the time they managed to get anyone to come look at me, and the person they sent barely spoke my language, told me it was "probably a breakthrough bleed due to the Pill" (despite me not being on BCP's for 10 months) and "definitely not a pregnancy ending" because my urine-hcg was -ve (it had been +ve until a few days before, which i tried to tell him, but whatever...).  By the time he'd finished i was perfectly happy to go bleed to death on my couch just to be out of there, it was so traumatic for me.

 

Anyway i don't know what you can take from that except that you're not alone, and we're listening, and we care.  I'm so sorry.  Love and light to you and your kids.  I hope healing is mercifully swift.

Thank you all so much. Once I laid down on the ER bed, everything started to level out and I stabilized relatively quickly, but that hour-ish from the time I left the house to the time I got a bed was terrifying. I'm trying to take it easy and just move slowly through my day as I work this all out and continue living life. We're working on normalizing the kids days again so they can heal, as well.

That is just .... omg. I'm so glad you came out of that and are ok. And thank you - I also hope things are mercifully swift!
