So I had my follow-up scan this morning and was told that I had now miscarried completely and would not need an operation to sweep out my womb, which is a relief as it has already taken a bit of a battering.
Thankfully, no need to see the doctor on the ward again for a fresh dose of insensitivity, which we were also grateful for.
So now I have an appointment to see the GP and we can hopefully look at a referral to the recurrent miscarriage clinic as I have now had three miscarriages, although not consecutive. It’s important to me to find out more, to help inform research, to make it mean something. To not just bat it away as something that ‘happens’.
I’m not really sure how I feel at this moment; scared, confused, frustrated, relieved it’s all over.
I do know that I’m forever grateful for the son we have, and that the support and love from family and friends has made us appreciate how cared for we are. A big thumbs up to that.
For anyone interested, I can recommend this thread on Mumsnet about to how to cope with the management of miscarriage. It definitely helped me.
