D&C Scheduled

The second round of misoprostol and a weekend filled with lots of walking to help move things along did not quite do the trick. I went in for another ultrasound today and still have tissue or clots in my uterus. My doctor scheduled a D&C for noon tomorrow. I have so much anxiety when it comes to medical procedures, especially surgery. She reassured me that this will be minimally invasive. She will only use suction, no scraping so that there will be no scar tissue. I won't have to be intibated and it will be a short procedure. Hopefully it will go smoothly and once the procedure is finished I'll be finished physically with this miscarriage.

Oh Michele, I'm so sorry. I know you didn't want it to come to this. I hope it all goes smoothly so that you can finally start to recover. More hugs being sent your way.

Good luck Michele. I know it can really be scary, but actually looking back I am very happy with my decision to go with a D&C. It was over quick and I don't remember a thing from the actual procedure. I will thinking of you!
