I'll be thinking of you and your DH tomorrow @Sally1981
My heart is breaking for you. xxx
So sorry you're going through this. Although it does sound like it could still go either way!
The next steps would be to wait for your blood tests back. Your HCG should still be rising and hopefully doubling every two-three days. There is really nothing you can do but sit back and wait. And try to stay positive.
As for the D&C, they are performed under a general and usually pretty straight forward. (I had one done as I had a MMC and my body was taking too long to miscarry naturally as in my HCG levels weren't going down and were still well above 150,000.)
For me, I went in had the D&C woke up and felt fine. Doctor said it went well and I had barely any bleeding. Fast forward an hour I stood up to go to the toilet and lost just over a litre of blood and was rushed to have a blood transfusion. After this I went home and had no bleeding at all and no pains. D&C's have there risks but for me the risks were minimal. Surgeons are there to do their job and with the best ability.

About a week ago, i experienced a miscarriage for the first time. I was about 5w4d by my calculation. On the second day of bleeding, I passed a very small bean-shaped thing and attached to it was some stringy tissue with what looked like veins. The next day, around 27 hours later, i passed something that looked EXACTLY the same: small bean-shaped thing with veiny stringy tissue. Everything else i passed was just blood and mucus. No clots. No other tissue. Has anyone experienced this before? My initial thoughts was that i could have been pregnant with twins and had passed the two sacs with foetal pole at different times.
I gave birth to an angel today. 22 weeks gestation and he lived for 3 hours and 5 minutes. I can't believe my little fighter lived for so long. He's beautiful and he's perfect and I had to walk away without him. I don't know how to deal with this. I miss him so much. I just want him back.
We will be going through this later in the week and like you I don't know how to deal with this but I am thinking these little angels came in our lives for something, I'm yet to work out what and why they were taken away.
Take care x
Hi everyone I believe I am on the verge of miscarrying my 5th pregnancy. I have one live child, who is almost 3 1/2, one early miscarriage before her and two after, and this might be the third. I'm supposed to be 9 weeks tomorrow, but went to the doctor last friday after starting to spot, after which they did blood tests, and an ultrasound which showed the baby measuring at 6 weeks and no heartbeat. I'm certain of my dates. The follow up blood test on Monday showed a slight drop from 9500ish to 8something (i wasnt listening closely as i was feeling numb). Anyway, the bleeding has increased over the last 6 days, and today I have passed some small clots, but nothing that resembles the baby yet. I am 99% sure I will miscarry properly in the next day or two, as this is how all the others started, although this is the highest hcg I've had in any miscarriage (the last one only got to 270). I had another blood test done this morning, but no results yet. I have a follow up ultrasound tomorrow to see if a heartbeat emerges but I don't think there is much hope...
