I am so so sorry you and DH are going through this. I m/c'd about 3 weeks and opted for the D&C. Like most others here, I wanted to get closure and move on...I couldn't stand the possibility of waiting and not knowing when or if it would happen naturally. Its such a personal decision. I was fortunate to speak with a number of women who m/c'd and then got pregnant following their D&C so I felt comfortable taking the risk (of having a d&c).
I learned a couple things from this experience:
1) It does get better...the first week is the worst and then slowly you will start to feel better. FOr me, the knowledge that I CAN get pregnant was helpful in recovering.
2) Everything is out of my control. I guess I should have realized this when I couldn't get pregnant easily, but I didn't. But I sure learned that lesson here. Surprisingly, it actually helped to relax about it all....
My heart goes out to you. Let me know if you want to chat about it. SUpport from the girls here got me through this tough time.
