My D+C went fine Monday morning.  I evidently "wanted to bleed," according to what my OB told my family when it was all over.  Monday and Tuesday weren't too bad, but today (TMI alert!) I've had killer cramps and have had to dispose of two pairs of underwear.  Lovely.  I'm going to push my 800mg of ibuprofen to every 6 hours as opposed to 8 and see how that goes for the cramps.  I'm also back to work tonight, tomorrow night and Friday night, so we'll see how that goes. 

I promise we'll eventually get back to "normal" on here...not that I'm really all that sure what that even looks like any more.

Thanks for all your prayers and thoughts throughout this rough time.  You're all the best.

I'm glad that medically everything went OK. I hope work is being very understanding and flexible right now. {hugs} and {hugs} and {hugs}

I've been thinking about you and wondering how you were feeling. My experience was much the same -- the first two days after the procedure I felt pretty good, and then the cramping started. I was on painkillers for at least three days pretty solidly -- I've since come off, but I'm still pumping pretty religiously. It's been a week now and still some bleeding and back pain, though the cramps have lessened.

I hope that you recover quickly, at least physically. I'm here if you want to talk.
