Quoting preggoteenconfusion:" I have thought about if I do this I'd want to just do surgical I just saw one clinic makes you wait until 6 weeks... So that's why I was wondering....."
I went backwards and forwards thinking about whether to have the surgical or the pill.
In the end I decided on the surgical because at least then I knew it would be over and done with, I could just go to sleep and when I woke up it would be all over. I didnít think I could emotionally handle seeing what my body was doing if I took the pill, and knowing my luck I was afraid something would have gone wrong and I would have end up having a surgical anyway. The people at my clinic were really good, nice and friendly and not at all judgemental. Like I said, I think they do things a little different over here, I didnít have to watch any videos about the procedure although I did talk about it with the health worker, I didnít have to see the ultrasound or listen to the heartbeat. Also they donít do the procedure when you are awake here, they always put you under, so there is no chance of feeling anything or hearing and seeing thing you donít want to.
When they woke me up, I sat in the recovery room for about an hour and then I was allowed to go home, and they told me to have big nap because it would make me feel better. Emotionally I was a mess for a few days, but physically I was fine, there was bleeding but no cramping or pain.
I canít comment on wait times, I was lucky and was able to have it done a week after I phoned to make the appointment. As far as pain goes, I canít see that there would be a big difference between having a surgical at 5 weeks or one at 11 weeks, the fetus is still tiny. I guess it could play with your emotionsÖ
