Sorry for the sad subject in this topic but I need some advice.
I have just had a scan at 11 weeks and there is no heartbeat. I've opted for medical management but the hospital are having some trouble giving me details about the effect of this on breastfeeding my 18mo ds. They say the last time the question came up was a year ago and they don't sounds particularly convinced by their own advice on the matter.
He only feeds 2-4 times a day but it has been more lately due to teething. He's fine with cow's milk and if he has to just have that for a couple of days, it's not the end of the world but I'd prefer to return to bf asap.
So, what painkillers can I take with bf? I know I can have paracetamol but I have a feeling that won't cut it. I can't take anything aspirin based anyway but would like to be dosed up to the gills for the actual main event.
Will you have to miscarry at home after the medicine has been administered or will you be in the hospital? I had medical management, I stayed in the hospital for the "process" and I found gas and air to be useful. Obviously this doesn't stay in your system so won't have an effect on your milk. Very sorry for your loss, i hope you have a speedy recovery.
