Re: Miscarriage question (tampon vs pad?)

mama I've had several m/c's and the ones at 5 weeks aren't really bad clot-wise. Pain is going to be the biggest issue and in the first 24 hours you will bleed pretty heavily. If you can get a postpartum pad or maybe even a poise pad to use while you are there for an hour or two I think you'll be ok. Take some ibproferen before you go and take some with you. I would just wear your bathing suit top and some shorts like someone else suggested. I think you know what is best for you mentally right now and if doing this will help you cope that do it. I'm sorry for your loss, it's so hard whether it's 5 weeks or full term.

Re: Miscarriage question (tampon vs pad?)

Well...the weather woman lied so we're at home. It was supposed to be 87* but it's not even 70...might warm up as the day goes on but right now it's cold. They don't even open unless it's 75. So I blamed the thermometer.

I'm feeling okay right now. A little bit of pain but nothing horrendous. Feels like AF really. Bleeding is not super heavy either.

You could always have a pool party in the bathtub?! Let the kids wear swimsuits and throw the beachball or play with bubbles. Not as fun but just a thought

I'm so sorry, mama. I have always put my Diva cup in within 24 hours of giving birth and during miscarriages. Do you have a local place that sells those, or something similar? I think they are fine since they are medical grade silicone. Not recommended by the company or doctors, but I have never had any problems.

I'm so sorry mama.

But I agree with others. This is going to be a super heavy period for you and I wouldn't want any accidents at the pool. Except water is suppose to be good for bleeding I wouldn't chance it.

Glad the weather chick was off.

Hope your kids understand. Maybe put on a movie and get some popcorn on.

Love the tub party idea and the sprinklers.
