Today I had it confirmed my baby has passed away. By my dates I should be 8w2d and the baby stopped growing at 6w5d.
I am still having shocking morning sickness and my belly has 'popped' dramatically in the past week.
I want this all over soon. What happened with your missed miscarriages? Can I ask for a d&c? Where do you get sent for one?

I had a d & c before my son was born. I would have proffered to miscarry on my own but it was a blighted ovum and I didn't find out untill my 12 week scan. They don't generally do a d&c for all miscarriages but if you develop a fever or have abdo pain they will do one incase of infection.
If you havnt started bleeding yet I won to upto emergency and tell them you want a d&c because you are unwell and miscarrying.

I'm so sorry. It's an awful thing to go through. I had one last year (was 9+4 weeks but bubs passed at 7). My body was still 'lying' to me too. Symptoms etc and the day I found out I had noticed a little pooch going on with my belly. So I can understand a bit.
My GP recommended a D&C because she felt it would be better for me, you can wait a long time for it to happen naturally and it's very painful. So I went for a D&C. You can ask your GP for it or OB if you under their care. When are you seeing GP? I'm surprised that after you found out they didn't offer you some options.
Definitely see your GP and find out your options. You can ask if that's what you want.
Again I'm so sorry. It's such devastating news. Hugs to you.

The whole thing has taken a week to confirm. So first ultrasound, two sets of bloods (HCG rising really well still) and a repeat ultrasound today.
I see my gp tomorrow. Wasn't far enough along to have seen my ob yet. So will ask her if I can go in for a d&c. I had to come of anti anxiety and ant depressant medications for this pregnancy so in not coping very well emotionally

That's just awful. I suffer with anxiety (not medicated though) and panic attacks and I found the whole thing very stressful too. To say the least. Having a D&C was best for me because it made the 'loss' part over so I could start healing. If there's anything I can help with, though not sure how, feel free to pm me.

I had a blighted ovum before dd, I had a d&c. Inbetween dd and ds I had another m/c, I let it happen naturally and it was much more painful both emotionally and physically.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I had a mmc 2 and 1/2 weeks ago at 6w2d. My GP sent me straight to hosp as soon as it was confirmed and as I could not get in for a D & C for a week I choose to take tablets to assist with miscarriage. Talk to your GP about what you would like to do when you go to see them. Big hugs xx
