D&C is done. And I feel the same as I did before. No cramping, no pain, really nothing to tell my mind that it's over. There is a little blood, I suppose that's something, but I still just can't wrap my mind around it. I haven't even really cried about it today.

I was planning on writing one of my usual rundowns of exactly what happened, but there really isn't much to tell. They stuck an IV in me in pre-op (we were amazed how many people were there at 6 in the morning!), asked me a bunch of questions about allergies, previous medical history, etc., discussed the anesthesia plans with me (MAC - monitor and something I forget now), and then wheeled me into the OR. We were talking about playing ice hockey and skating, and that's the last thing I remember until I woke up as they were wheeling me into recovery. I just felt like I'd had a nice nap. And that was it. I had to drink something, pee, and then could go home.

I made DH stop at TJ's on the way home to get some cinnamon buns for lunch.

I'm glad it went as well as can be expected.

I know what you mean about not being able to wrap your mind around it. It took a while before it felt real to me - though that was worse in between the bad ultrasound and the D&C. I kept wanting to go back it before I found out - kept wondering if it was all a mistake, even though I knew it wasn't.

I'm glad you got cinnamon buns! You certainly deserve them. I hope you heal quickly, both physically and emotionally, though I know the last one might take time.

Thinking of you.

{{{{Nico}}}} I am so saddened to learn of your loss. It really, really sucks. :( I lost three between my girl and Charming Boy, I had a D&C @ the end of the first trimester due to fetal death (Trisomy 21). Did your OB ask you about genetic testing of the POC?

I hope that you heal quickly. Please know that I am thinking about you and sending hugs.
