I have just had a miscarriage at 10 weeks. I bled a lot for 3 weeks or more with my baby still growing well. Then after excruciating pain I ended up in Emergency on morphine. From there I thought I lost my baby but then found out he had just died. I then had medication to try and push my baby out. That didn't work fully so I had a D&C and then became severely anaemic so had to have blood tranfusions. I had been losing clots the size of two fists twice a day for almost a week so it was no surprise I became anaemic. I ended up being in and out of hospital for two weeks.
What I find the most difficult to deal with is that I saw my dead baby on the ultrasound screen looking so peaceful but then all the intervention afterwards for him to come out of me broke him into pieces. I know this because it was an incomplete miscarriage, I have a bicorneate uterus, and on the two days between hospital stays for the mesaprosil and the operation whenever I went to the toilet and wiped myself I saw pieces of him on the toilet paper. I had no chocie but to flush him away.
Sorry for the details but I want to know if anyone else has experienced this and how they dealt with it.
