D&C scheduled for tomorrow morning. Reality of what is happening is setting in :(


I discovered last week when we went in for my 7 week scan that it was a blighted ovum, a perfectly formed placenta but no embryo. What we thought was going to be our first time hearing our baby's heart beat ended in heart break, we were not prepared for this outcome at all as my HCG levels were exceptionally high.

I've spent the last week still experiencing morning sickness which is horrible especially knowing the outcome of the situation. Tomorrow morning (AU time) I will be going in for the D&C which will be good for closure but also difficult.

I've always been the tough and stoic one but this pain and heart break I'm feeling is at a completely different level. I'm sorry for this soppy post but on here I can be completely raw and honest and know that unfortunately I am surrounded by women who know how I am feeling.

Feel so sad reading your post. Really sorry to hear of your loss. Thinking of you tomorrow. I have had 2 D and C's in the past so can identify with you. Hope you are getting and will continue to get the support that you need now and in days to come. Such a devastating and painful time for you. Just take one day at a time and don't bottle up your feelings. You will survive this. I lost for the third time in March 2017. In May of this year I gave birth to a little boy. Don't give up on this journey. Take care. Sending you a hug. I am here if you need a chat.xo
