    I had a MMC in feb and had a D&C. The emotional side of it was awful. I had already envisioned this little person as part of our family, so to have that ripped from me was incredibly difficult

    What I found the hardest, was when we started ttc again and AF would arrive. I was devastated all over again and the grief of the mc just came flooding back again.

    Default Normal to feel empty/sad following d&c!?

    I was in your situation (without the ambulance visit though), they put me into hospital for the D&C on the day before Christmas Eve and I remember thinking how am I supposed to be happy at Christmas when I just feel so empty. I couldn't explain how I felt but it was just like this gaping hole was now in the place of that little person that had been growing inside me. To make matters worse as they were short staffed and on limited facilities due to Christmas period, they had me in recovery between two women and their babies that had just come out of c-sections. I thought my DH was going to blow a gasket when he realised what was going on. I just wanted to go home and cry but felt like everyone expected me to just put a brave face on and get on with things. Until someone has been through it they just don't understand the mix and depth of emotions we go through. Hugs to you, I hope you're starting to feel a bit better

    Im so sorry you had to deal with it all at xmas time 😒 and yes whilst i wasnt placed in between two ladies who had just had their babies i overheard staff talking about the c section who just had her baby and started getting teary trying my hardest not to ball... that would have been devastating for you.

    First day back at work after finding out and everyone was asking if i was feeling better (they arent aware of whats happened) and i just quickly said 'yep' and continued working..... had a few tears in the toilets so one day at a time i guess...
