Just wanted to say thanks for all the lovely support you guys have given me over the last few days. I'm now back home after having the D&C yesterday ironically on what would have been our official scan date. Even as a doctor I naively thought that at this stage a miscarriage would just be like a heavy period, how wrong I was. The cruel thing is that I now know what labour pains feel like.
After a week of hospital admissions, passing huge clots the size of a fist and excruciating pain requiring repeated doses of morphine I was just pleased to get to theatre (apart from the fact that I vaguely knew the young registrar who was doing the procedure) . The worst part (which I keep having flashbacks to) was seeing the surgeon write in massive letters on the whiteboard in theatre the name of the op - ERPOC (it wasn't a product, it was my baby).
Even though I feel I'm running out of time we will try again. The problem with NZ is that they don't really test why it happens or suggest any additional medications and just seem to use standard protocol and hope for the best. I will grill my consultant in a few weeks when I see her.
Gonna plant something in the garden tomorrow in memory of our little one. Even though we won't be in NZ forever, this was our Kiwi baby.
