    Nausea after d&c
    An_257553 posted:
    Hi, I am so grateful for the 1 year old I have at home and am an older mom (I just turned 42 this past March). I have recently had a d&c after finding out that my baby that was about 8 weeks old (although I think I was further along but ultrasound showed that he/she would have been only 8 weeks) didn't have a beating heart. I also work third shift for my work right now and during the day feel fine but when I go into work I have developed some nausea and this has been about the last couple of days and my d&c was about 4 days ago. I reached out via email to advise and update my ob's office of this and the "typical response" I have received is "if you don't feel better I suggest you make an appointment". Is this nausea typical so many days after? I also noticed that I have gotten chilled too but it is later in the evening/early morning (3:00-3:30 am) and am concerned. I have also been kind of moodier than usual (but I have been taking antidepressants (Prozac) already due to PPD from previous pregnancy. Anyone have any advice/thoughts on if this is common? Thank you in advance.
