Miscarriage?

I just came back from the hospital and was told I had a miscarriage I'm suppose to be 11 weeks but the baby only measured 9 weeks 2 days should I get the d&c or get a second opinion?

I don’t know much but about the medical side of it. But I would want a second opinion if I were in your shoes

I’m also not sure at what point they can listen for a heart beat, but I heard one at 14 weeks. So maybe you can ask for that too.

I'm going through this. I thought I was 10 weeks. Baby measured at 6.5 weeks. It's so heartbreaking. I'm getting a d&c but can't until Wednesday. Sending ❤️

Yes unfortunately this is a miscarriage but if you need the second opinion or don’t trust the doctor fully than you need to do what you feel if best and get a second opinion I’m so sorry for your loss.

Get a second opinion, my baby always measured a few weeks behind but was born perfectly healthy. He was itty-bitty but born at 37wks weighing 5.6lbs

Sending love and good vibes either way ❣️

Sorry youre going through this. What's is a d&c?

Sorry about your loss. I went through a MMC in January. You should be given options how you would like to manage- a d&c, medication, or let nature take its course. I personally chose d&c because I read horror stories about the medicine and in a lot of cases they still had to have a d&c. It can take weeks for your body to naturally miscarry. You really just have to decide what is best for you physically, financially, and emotionally. If you want a second opinion before proceeding they should give you another ultrasound in a week or two as an additional confirmation.

@Andrea it's a procedure to remove the baby from the uterus

Was there a heartbeat ?

Sadly no

Did you have any spotting or bleeding?

I’m so sorry Tresa. Did you have any symptoms?

Sending hugs I know this all to well I lost 2 hunn an it was heart breaking too me a while to gather my self but I made it through now the medical side not sure but I would get checked out just too be sure

I had brown bleeding now it's red. It's not my first rodeo but doesn't mean it hurts any less I've been trying to have another baby for 3 years now I think I'm losing all hope

This isn't the first time this year that I've had a miscarriage. This one seemed to be fine until now

@Anais I really haven't thought about that. Thank you for the suggestion 😊

I go Thursday for the d&c
