Still waiting for my first period after D&C.
nreyn3 posted:
Well I was estimated at 7 weeks pregnant, should have been 8 based on my last period, and the heartbeat was low so a follow up was scheduled for 2 weeks later. At the follow up there had been no development and the heart had stopped. I had no cramping or spotting, and still had all my symptoms, so we decided to have a D&C done, to allow me to return to work after my weekend.

I had a D&C on January 22 and now its March 16 and still no period or cramping! I was originally told 4 to 6 weeks was normal. I called my doctor at 7 weeks and was told sometimes it takes longer and not to worry.

I just can't help it! We plan on trying again as soon as possible, but we have no way of knowing when I'll get my first period, let alone my second and it's kinda driving me crazy. Any little cramp or gas bubble makes me constantly check to see if it's finally started. Everyone I know that has had a D&C normally started by the 5th week and here I am approaching my 8th. Any input would be appreciated!!!!
