Edit: it's all over. MMC medical management did not work :(


So Monday with a little bit of brown blood I found out baby had stop growing 6+4 I thought I was 10weeks.

I opted for medical management 10am Wednesday morning, cramps/bleeding started at 4pm - 8pm I had a few blood clots but not many and definitely didn't pass sac/foetus. I sat up until 1am and still nothing so I got some sleep & woke up at 5am expecting blood/cramps but nothing.

I was sent to our larger hospital out of town to discuss further action with the doctor. I was given 3 options - 1 Wait it out for 3 weeks & come back for a scan then look at option 2 & 3 if nothing has happened - 2 wait 1 week & go back to do medical management again - 3 operation to remove.

These options were given to me but they prefer me to wait it out but if nothing has happened in a week I think I will go back for medical management again.

Its hard to start trying to grieve when it is still inside of me.

Anyone had a similar experience? thanks

It's all over - I kept myself busy today hoping the movement would help and it has.

Passed it this afternoon. We have put it in a little tin & buried it in our garden couldn't face flushing it or putting it in the bin.

Somewhere to remember it by in a place where we have lovely family times.

First of all, I am sorry for your loss. I am going through my 2nd mmc in a row. This last week i found out at 12 week appointment that it had stopped growing at 8 weeks. I had opted for the medical way this time. I'm glad everything is over for you and you can move on. I am hoping for the same...I wish you all the best and I know we will have our rainbows soon.

Thank you LKglove so sorry to hear of your losses too

What is helping me through this is knowing that there was obviously abnormalities with the baby & I am glad it ended without me having to make the decision to end it.

We will get out rainbow babies eventually I have read we are much more fertile over the next few months so fingers crossed x

well, you lost a baby, not a piece of paper. i just wanted to say that it can help if you see the baby as your child and do things to help that feel real. Name your baby, bury your baby ( which you did), etc.

I should have been around 10wks or so and Wylders HB stopped at 6w3d. I have him in a Build A Bear bunny.

This is happening to me too . 12 week scan yesterday showed a sac but baby they said looked 5 or 6 weeks so no heartbeat. Such a shock. Have to go back for further scan in 10 days to check but I know it's going to be the same. Best wishes to you all as well x

I'm so sorry that happened to you. I wish I could of buried mine at home, I was in the hospital for most of my miscarriage. I did pass a large clot and I could see a embryonic sack but I couldn't look. My mom got it and she said it was part of the baby, she said she would bury it for me. I can't bear to think that I flushed any of it away. Yes it can be helpful to think of it as a natural part of selection due to genetic issues. I told someone something similar in the hospital and she said I hope no one makes you feel any less than what this was, a loss and then she cried. I couldn't cry but she cried for me. Excepting it as a loss has helped me to adjust to what has happened. I wrote a poem, did some artwork and got a necklace with the babies nickname initial.
