Hey ArborBaby - welcome. I always feel like infertility is the club nobody wants to belong to, and so in a way we who have experienced pregnancy loss are the club nobody wants to belong to within that. So Welcome! Go Team!
“I am so tired of people being in my vagina.” HA!!! that is hilarious - you made my day. and I totally identify with that. We were all sitting around talking at my doc’s office after my ultrasound on Friday and he finally said something about letting me get dressed, and I said well I have more questions. He just looked at me and was like - don’t you want to get dressed and finish this in my office? I said oh well, I guess, but at this point I’m very comfortable sitting around naked talking to all of you. so weird. it’s time to regain some modesty!
I have not miscarried yet. We went to the doc on Friday for the followup after not seeing a heartbeat the week before. We had planned to do the D&C but I was nervous about it. After seeing how little tissue there was present, and I could not decide what to do, he gave me an Rx for painkillers and sent me home. I had continued to take all the progesterone and estrogen that I was on while pregnant, so I stopped those. We’ll wait and see if I miscarry on my own. If by Thursday I have not, I’ll go back to the doc (he’s about 2.5 hrs away) and he’ll insert some vaginal meds and give me another Rx to jumpstart the miscarriage.
so, what should I expect? I’m nervous but I feel like I can deal with the pain, and it’s worth it to preserve what little fertility I have.
HMB - I hope you like your new RE! I do not like my regular gyn doc,and when I get preg I will be switching to someone else. I know that is a scary situation and I wish you the best.
I am sorry that y’all have both been thru losses, but I am so glad to have this board. It’s nice to have folks to talk to who have the special concerns we do.
Hope y’all are both having a great Superbowl Sunday.
