When I had a missed M/C, my OB booked me in for a D&C the day following the diagnosis (private hospital). Not sure how it works going through a GP, though.
I started bleeding this afternoon. And cramping. Like my body just knew I needed to move on one way or another! I am ok - I think I knew this was going to end this way. Just too many factors for it to come out any other way. Hopefully now I will no longer be in limbo and can move on. Will see what the next few days bring...
Thanks all for listening to my rant. Going to stock up on maxi pads and chocolate. And perhaps red wine.
I'm so sorry you're going through this. It sounds like my mc. I had spotting from 5 weeks and I lost the baby at 7+5. In my case the baby grew and had a strong hb, yet the spotting continued. I knew there was something wrong even when everyone was telling me that spotting means nothing and everything looks fine. They booked me for a d&c the day after the scan revealing the lack of hb. The d&c was a relief, to be honest, sad as it was. I was losing my mind.
Just remember that you're calling the shots and if continuing with this situation is endangering your mental health, they have to take that into consideration when making decisions.
