    Despite my past history having trouble with cervical biopsies and IUD insertion, I was encouraged to have an endometrial biopsy without sedation. It did not work and now I need to reschedule the procedure with sedation. I wish the medical providers had listened to me, which would have saved everyone time and money.

    I felt like time lasts an eternity after learning our baby stopped developing. I wish my vitals had been taken before the ultrasound and that someone would have come into the exam room faster than 25 minutes later. I felt like I couldn't get out of there fast enough in such an emotional time and hearing a baby's heartbeat from another room after not hearing mine was really hard. I know not every situation is the same as mine but I wanted to flee the area so badly after learning we were about to miscarry.
