I'm so sorry for your loss
We had a MMC 3 weeks ago and the bub stopped growing at 6 weeks. I got to my 10 week appointment with the OB before we found out and I had all the pregnancy symptoms too. We were given the option of a D&C and while it was a horrible experience it was the best option for us. It helped with the healing process. For me, it helped to talk with DH about a plan for trying again. It gave me something to look forward to. We also planted a tree for our LO. It helped me grieve.

Argh where do I start. Well my HCG levels have risen again. I have been referred to the early pregnancy unit at the hospital. They will contact me next week to organise more bloods and another scan. When those results come back then I will go in a talk about my options. Fingers crossed it happens naturally soon. I can't eat from morning sickness (have had 1 arrowroot biscuit all day) and I didn't sleep well last night. Want this nightmare over. Seriously wish I could just waltz into the hospital and ask for a d&c and be done with it
Oh stretchmark. The wait is horrible. What an ordeal you are going through. Sounds a bit like what happened with my first miscarriage. My levels rose too then dropped then rose again. The whole process was agonizing. I really feel for you. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers over the next while. I hope you are managing okay though I know you probably just want to go to sleep and wake up when it's over. Big big hugs. xo
