Hiya, thanks for asking Emily... it was absolutely fine, They gave me a drug before giving the general anasthetic so was absolutely high as a kite and didn't even realise what they were doing. Physically I feel fine and have only been bleeding a tiny bit. Obviously emotionally is a different story and I am going through a whole range of emotions at the moment, but the procedure itself was fine and would def choose it again.
Hope you are okay hon xx

I can completely understand how you feel and infact I think emotionally it is harder for you because you measured 9 weeks whereas my pregnancy finished at 5 so it wouldn't have had a heartbeat, however you still mourn for the loss of the opportunity to have a baby. Just go easy on yourself.
I am so pleased your operation went well, it's unfortuantely so common that it's a pretty simply op for the hospital to do. I think I am getting there emotionally thanks, purely because I had such a traumatic miscarriage with the huge amount of blood that I lost that it's sort of taken over from the loss of a pregnancy. I am just grateful to still have everything working and have some blood left!
If you need to talk just send me an email. Not sure if it helps you but i've made myself a list of what I can do for the nxt 6-8 wks that I wouldn't have been able to do like eat pate, paint our bathroom, go to the spa e.t.c We are also going to treat ourselves to a few news things because we have extra savings now. Obviously I'd rather be pregnant but it does help to remember the little positive things. Also take a look at the bounty website, they are doing a buggyrun in July and I've done it before, if one is near you go to it, it's brilliant! x

I think pregnancy loss is devastating at any stage it seems so unfair. Definately going to enjoy a few glasses of wine and some yummy cheese. x

Can you tell me with the erpc were you in and out of the hospital in one day? I am really nervous about having it done but think its probably the least traumatic physically and I hope it will make everything happen a bit quicker so we can start to move on. I have an allergy to one type of general anaesthetic which made me stop breathing and paralysed for 4hours when I was a young child although that has been the last operation I have had so I am quite nervous for this one. It's going to all happen on Tuesday for me but I just want Tuesday to hurry up!

I think usually you can be in and out in one day. They told me that it's a very simply operation that unfortuantely they do at least twice a day. It doesn't hurt at all, I was back on the ward within 2 hours. I did feel a bit sick afterwards and you're not allowed to drive for 24 hours.
I hope it goes well for you x
