Support group - Miscarriages


ohh. Okay im checking with tianwei now..how many days of confinement food will you be taking? Yes.. i think only we can understand how each other felt..i think my case is similar to yours? My hb keep consoling me that at least it hasnt been formed but to me, from the day i knw that im pregnant, i can already feel the baby is part of me. Even though its a small tissue that passed out yesterday, its really hurting so badly inside me.
i ordered 14 days single meal from tianwei for my last mc because my hb can cook too. But i never order this mc yet. I really like their food but this confinement i sort of know what to cook already. And they give the red date longan drink - i dont drink as i dont take sweet drinks. I boil my own daily. So i dont think i will order this time. But definitely will order 28 days for my real confinement in future.

yes our case is very similar. Mine also stop growth at 6w2d. I understand how u feel. Sorry about your loss.
 
Actually how long do you take between the doses? I was instructed 2 tabs n twice a day. But I started the med in afternoon 5pm.. thinking is there a need to take another dose later?
i take it with 8 hours interval for 3 days already. Twice a day. Today we just increased the dose to 6 hours interval for three times a day for the next 2-3 days in hopes of flushing everything out.

ohh lucky you that your hb can cook! Tianwei replied me saying that they cant customise to only noodles. But since you mentioned the food is good, i will just place an order ba. So far the customer officer has been most responsive compared to the rest i am checking with.
Sorry about your loss too and thank you so much in answering all my queries :) Really helps alot for me esp when today has been an emotionally draining day but i keep telling myself i need to start taking care of my body and book my confinement meals for next week.

Eh.. means i remember wrongly about the rice/noodles! Sorry sorry! Now i remember, i asked for no funny rice like brown rice or whatever barley rice etc. And i gave the white rice to my helper to eat and she cook mee sua for me on days where tianwei sends the rice. Sorry my bad. It was less than 6 months ago but i was too sad that time so i cant remember much.

have u bought the herbs for showering and chicken essence?
 
and yes tianwei is one of the best, i did try trial meals from the rest companies as part of my extended confinement after i completed my 14 days package with tianwei. But the rest could not make it. Tianwei hands down the best.

For the cytotec, u insert it n not orally?
My gynae told me to insert it. My dosage is 2 tabs every 3 hours. Total 5 dosages. I took ibuprofen half an hour before inserting because I saw online got ppl said will have intense pain. So I took painkiller first.

8plus inserted 2 tablets: Nothing happen
11plus inserted 2 tablets: Slight spotting
2plus inserted 2 tablets: Started cramping and bleeding. About 4plus have heavier cramps but bearable and passed out the fetus at 5plus. The cramps stopped after the fetus were expelled out from my body.
6plus continued to insert 2 tablets: Continue to bleed but no pain
9plus inserted 2 tablets: Continue to bleed but no pain

Went back to see my gynae the next day and did vaginal scan. Everything was cleared out. Hope this helps

Ohh no need sorry lar! no worries! I decided to just eat the dishes and if too salty den prob few mouthful of whatever rice they gave ba haha.

Noleh dont think i will shower with herbs. Is Chicken essence really necessary also? My mil say she will boil chicken with DOM after i stopped bleeding. Will it be the same?Actually im quite scared all these food making me very heaty. I just drank few cups of red date longan this evening and my whole body is so warm and im sweating buckets..

Oh, I was only given 4 doses, 2tabs x 2 / day, which I think I was told to take morning n night. As I started only in the night, it didn’t have much bleeding though. Hopefully, today’s dose will be better.

I see I see...my dosage higher think maybe because mine was twins. Anyway, you rest well and take care! Don’t think so much. Rest well and maybe can see a tcm to build up your body first:)

Hi, I took 2 weeks of post-miscarriage aka 小月子餐 with yuezile confinement catering.
Tbh I feel 1 week should be enough. At 1.5 weeks I am already tired of it and the amount of soup and rice is quite a lot.

Hello, yeah agree. Always struggle to finish the soup while the rice i usually will just take few mouths.. abit wasted lar..maybe better with just 1 confinement meal a day but I was unable to find one that caters for just 7 days

Hi Lisa,

so sorry for your lost. It has happened to me 3 times too , however mine was with heartbeat & then i lost it.
i have been to many gynae and all i can say is that sometimes we wont even be able to find an answer to it. The most detailed gynae i have been to is Prof Choolani at NUH, where he called for alot of blood test to test if there is something going on in my body. For example, infection? Blood clotting issues etc and it cost thousand of dollars. Thank God, all the results came back fine.
i ever asked him, why does this keep happening to me? And he said , if the blood reports are all normal, some patients he have seen, have cases like that and they just have to bite through the bullet & keep trying, no specific reason to it, it is sometimes how our body works. (It could just happened to be a bad egg or bad sperm)

Another way is to go through D&C and send the baby for testing to see what causes the miscarriage, is it really due to chromosones or is there other triggering points, but of course the cons is that D&C has its own risk. So it depends on how you want to pursue the closure. Because after all that i have been through & money we have spent, i felt that sometimes something is just can’t be explained, we just got to keep trying & pray.

hope this helps.

Thank you so much for your reply.. It is very helpful for me.. May I know the approx cost how much you had spend for all the tests with Prof choolani as even I want to consult him and to know whether I would be able to afford him or not. BTW Do you have any kids now..

Plus consult & scans , prepare about 2k. But prior to that i have already done some other test too with other gynae, so he did not repeat those test i have done with other gynae, so if you don’t have any other test done elsewhere, the cost might be higher if Prof choolani decides to call for all. I have also been through D&C testing. not yet, my miscarriages are quite recent & within this 2 years, so im still resting my body.

Even I have been to another gynae and got some tests done.. But I did not feel that satisfied and this time I do not want to take risk so I want to get through a thorough testing so doing all kinds of research who is best and all.. Thank you for the info.. And all the best to you..

Hi
I went for a scan yesterday at 7 weeks. There is no fetal pole. Only water sac. I am going to seek 2nd opinion this week.
Can I check how long can I keep it inside me before it is life threatening? Read somewhere about sepsis.
Also, I read some articles about people taking the medicine to flush it out and ended up feeling faint and going to a&e. This is freaking me out. I am still having morning sickness and it is weird to know now it is for a water sac. How long will I be unfit for work after taking the medicine?

What kind of confinement would I need ? Thanks
