Hi ladies,
First of all I would never have thought that I would find myself on this section of the pregnancy before.
We just loss out little baby girl due to the genetic and hypoplastic heart issue.
The D&E should be schedule maybe next week. Ill be 18 week. What is the process like? Will I be awake for it or will they put me under? I dont think I can handle the emotional if I have to be awake for it.
Something like this shouldnt happen to anyone ;-(

Hello-I;m so sorry this has happened to you.  I had a D&C at 7 weeks, so I am not sure what if anything is different at 18 weeks.  Do you know who will be doing your procedure?  Is it Dr. Gerber?  If so he is amazing and he and his staff are all so helpful and compassionate for what you are going through.  

The D&C is usually done under conscious sedation. Which means you are awake, but sedated so a bit in and out of it.  I don't remember a single thing.

My heart breaks and I relive my experience as I am writing to you. I terminated due to a birth defect at 17 weeks. Like the above comment, it is done under conscience sedation which means you are in and out. I don't remember a thing about it and am very thankful for that. I did request prior to going in that I did not want to see or hear anything, I guess my way of protecting my already fragile heart. Wising you peace on this horrible journey.

Zoe13 - My procedure would be L&D with cytotec I believe.
Dr. Said he didnt want to put me under if I dont really need it. As long as epidural available I think I should be ok. i think ;-(
