Hi All, I had a MC 2 weeks ago - had been having small amount of spotting for a couple days, was referred for early scan (I was 10 wks), sadly no heart beat, so had a D&C 3 days later on 11th March - however I still have tender, slightly leaky boobs sad All other symptoms went straight after surgery but if anything boobs got worse & don't seem to be getting better. Anyone else had a similar experience? How long is this likely to go on? I just want closure now - really feel I'm stuck in some sort of hellish limbo, and that I can't really deal with any of this until my body gets the message that it's no longer pregnant sad
Thanks xx

I'm sorry for your loss, OP, and I remember that feeling of just wanting it to stop. It can take a while for your hormones to settle back down to normal levels and, although it was a while ago for me, I seem to remember that it took about six weeks for everything to go back to normal.

However, as your symptoms seem to be getting worse, then I think it's worth seeing your GP. I appreciate you've probably had it up to here with doctors and medical intervention at the moment but call your doctor or maybe the clinic where you had the D&C. I hope they'll be able to put your mind at rest.

Thanks pippistrelle. I think you're right, I just need to give it some time. I have however spoken to the hospital this morning &, although the nurse I spoke with couldn't answer my concerns fully, she was of the same view. She is also speaking to the early pregnancy unit on my behalf & getting them to call me back with some more expert advice.
I had a complete mc 3 years ago & it was a very different experience - both physically and emotionally. I have since then had a successful pregnancy - now mum to a VERY boisterous 21 month old son! However in some respects I think that makes this a bit harder.

It would certainly make the physical aspects harder as there's no chance of just hunkering down and getting some rest. I hope the early pregnancy unit are able to provide reassurance.

It's a horrible thing to go through. flowers for you.

Aw thank you x
They were very reassuring........not much else they can offer really though. Just got to get on with it. Things do seem to be getting better slowly, each day is a bit easier.

That's good, Ranger. It can be a slow process, but ultimately, maybe that's not such a bad thing. It's a thing you can't just shrug off so physical symptoms might remind you to try to take things easy and be kind to yourself. And I hope you have some supportive real life people around you.
