Question, Thoughts, Struggle

Melissa • Mom of 1, wife, runner

Found out yesterday at my first appointment that I had a missed miscarriage. I was supposed to be 10 weeks today, but the baby stopped growing between 6 and 7 weeks. This is such a gut wrenching, isolating experience. It’s like an unspoken grief that you can’t talk about. I was given my options and decided that having a D&C; was the best option for me. I have it scheduled for Monday. Doing my best to go back to “normal” until then.

That all being said, I’ve started spotting tonight. It’s not bright red, more like brownish and mucus like in consistency. I’m assuming the stress of the last 2 days has kickstarted the process for me. Has anyone experienced this? Did you ultimately have to have the D&C; anyway or did your body pass it on it’s own?

Sending many healing thoughts to all of you who are going through this. ❤️
