my story is that we went in for our first appointment to hear baby's heartbeat when i was 10.5 weeks. the baby had died around 8 weeks. i was still having strong symptoms up until maybe a couple days before the appointment. so i was in total shock and so sad. i had problems with my son at birth (pre-eclampsia and hellp syndrome), so i was preparing myself for that, but not for this. i waited another three weeks hoping to miscarry on my own, but it just wasn't happening. so when i should have been 14 weeks and maybe starting to feel the baby kick, i was in the hospital put under general anesthesia and had a d&c.
i was terrified of the whole idea of the procedure, but i managed to get through. this was on friday and i am still pretty sore. i just wondered what other people's experience were with this. i lost a lot of blood during the procedure, so that is definitely contributing to my feeling run down and tired. also before the procedure my hcg was 125,000 and then 91,000. did anyone else have such high hormone counts? i go in this week for another hcg check. i have no idea what to expect in terms of how quickly the hormone levels will drop.
