My husband and I struggled for about a year trying to conceive, after a few months of fertility pills, we finally succeeded. I went for my first appt at 7 weeks, everything was fine. Went for my 2nd appt, at 11 weeks, only to find out I had miscarried. Total blow...everything had been fine. It's been 5 weeks since I had my D&C, and I'm still having breakdowns. I don't care to leave the house, altho I do for work of course. I just can't seem to move past this, yet we want to try again, in hopes that a new pregnancy will help cope. On the same note, I'm scared to death to get pregnant and have this happen again. I guess I just needed to talk this out, and talk to other women who've been thru this also. Any tips on how to cope with this horrible emotional pain would be greatly appreciated. I guess I need to know that I'm not crazy, altho lately I feel like I am.View Thread
Sorry to hear of your loss. My husband and I also experienced this 5 weeks ago. We were also given those options, but we opted for the D&C, because I didn't think I could emotionally handle waiting to pass it on my own. I hope you start feeling better soon!View Thread
