I cried all the way there, through registration, and off and on the 2 hours we waited and got prepared for surgery. Once they took me to pre-op and Scott had to leave me, I really cried and was barely coherent. One poor nurse ran over and asked if I was worried about the surgery and I said no, she asked what was wrong and I told her I was 10 weeks pregnant and the baby died. She got me a warmed blanket and was very kind.

My Dr. is wonderful, she came and saw me right after I got in, covered me up, explained things to me while trying not to cry, then gave me a big hug. She also told me I could try again after I have a period... I asked if there was anything we could do to get a better result and she suggested donor eggs.  :lol: It was sad and funny all at once.

I'm tired and groggy but ok. When I woke up I didn't feel like crying anymore, I was relieved because it's embarrassing to lose it and have a wet, snotty full on sobfest in front of complete strangers who have to ask you over and over again why you are there.

oh sagewinna - I am so sorry! I was briefly in the June 2011 DDC with you...also lost my baby 11/10. The sobfest before/during my D&C was horrible. My OB was crying, the nurse was crying, even the anesthesia guy...and me lying there sobbing so hard the damn drugs would not kick in. I wish life was fair and none of us had to deal with this. hug2.gif

I am so so sorry. I double checked the date on the thread, hoping it was an ancient one and not the loss of your March baby, too. You had such kind words for me during my loss, and I crossed my fingers for you. I wish I could hug you in person.

Thank you, Mommas. <3

 

It's been a rough few days. I guess I overdid it this morning, the cramps came back with a vengeance this afternoon. Very little bleeding since the procedure, just very tired.

 

Trying to figure out where to go from here. Emotionally I am pretty much a wreck.

Oh sagewinna I'm so sorry. I remember you from the December 2011 DDC and I saw you had gotten pregnant again. I'm so sorry. Your words are making me tear up, I feel those emotions. I hope you can find some peace soon.
