Thanks for asking the support from this site has been AMAZING and helped me so much when I got this sad news.  I had to ban myself from this site and from any new google searches on missed abortion & miscarriage - I was making myself seriously crazy.   My update:  back to the doc that same week, same results w/the ultrasound.  Took my trip to family for Easter, had a nice time.  Took a nice long bath at the hotel and had some type of revelation that I really needed...
Did you do this yourself or consult an herbalist?  I cannot find any herbalists here in my neck of the woods (suburban nightmare), or for that matter a natural foods store outside of the chains (whole foods, wild by nature).  I may need to go into the city, but I know I can get EPO at the store here.  I may try this route but I'd feel better if I had a specialist to consult...
Thanks greenmama for the reassurance about being at work.  Also, re: sex, okay this is TMI but I've been really neglecting my partner for the past month (uh, or two....) and although he is totally understanding I know if I m/c I'm going to have to abstain for even longer so I wanted to get some "credits" in that department prior to not being able to, if you know what I mean.  So anyway, we did it yesterday (and again, warning: TMI) I didn't  "O" b/c I could not stop...
Thank you for all the support and suggestions.  I have been "researching" (aka googling) a lot about the herbal treatments and the difference between waiting it out, using the pills (I think only until 8 weeks?? but is that age of baby or how far along you are in real time?), and D&C.   I will check out the Shepard's purse to have on hand.  I'm not a heavy bleeder (either after birth or monthly) so I hope that holds up for this situation.   The Loss boards were also...
Thanks so much for the support.  It really means a lot and so much more because I hadn't even told anyone about the preg.  Thank you a million times for the kind thoughts and cyber hugs.   The docs at this practice are really short and not so helpful, if things turn out "okay" and even if they don't (and I need that colposcopy) I'm taking my business elsewhere.  One thing I did like is that I asked about the drug I've heard elsewhere on here (cyrotex?) to induce a...
Kind of freaking out.  Also, completely confused emotionally..... was not a planned preg, was totally ambiviant about it, finally coming to terms with idea of being preg. and new baby, etc. now....?   First appointment today at  7w3d by LMP, measured at 7w1d by transvaginal ultrasound. No heartbeat.  U/S tech saying "no big deal" but then huge weird deal to get me to see OB right away, 2 people came in and ask "are you bleeding?" (no, I'm not but thanks for letting...
I went grocery shopping today w/my 16 y.o., when we got home she said "we bought 6 different kinds of crackers"  LOL.  I picked up some of those light Wasa crackers, been eating them constantly since I got home.  I also bought some other weird things, like Hagen daaz LEMON ice cream (not sorbet, or sherbert, but ice cream) , I'm not sure why I bought it or if I'll ever eat it but it seemed like the best sounding thing in the world when I saw it in the store. 
I just discovered I can't stand Hummus.  This is sad, it's a go too snack that I feel good about and that fills me up.  I just pulled it out of the fridge and part of me was already saying "gross" and the old (pre-preg.) me was saying "of course you'll like it!"  I just pretty much forced myself to eat it and it was not enjoyable, now I feel sick.   Also suddenly disgusted with: taboulleh   I haven't had any real morning sickness yet (7 weeks today) but these are...
I got an email about these pants from Lands' End (link below is for the crop, but they also come in long) - "Starfish Stretch" I thought they'd be perfect for just want you (finneganmom) describe and what I've been thinking about needing myself.  Something comfortable but not maternity style.  I think I might order some, although they are pricey I expect they are good quality from LE.  I also ordered a belly band but I have a feeling the rolling down will annoy me...
I'm glad I stubbled on this thread.   I have three bi-racial (white/black) children,  I also am often taken off guard by the "biracial children are so pretty" comments.   I hear this a lot, and it makes me extremely uncomfortable.  It's usually followed by a "don't you think?" and I've yet to come up with a good reply but I usually say something like "all children are beautiful".   I have to admit I'm most uncomfortable when I hear this from a black person, usually a...
