Not a good update :(

I went in for an appt today because I was still cramping and had a backache and they couldn't find the HB via Doppler. I was 15 weeks along and we heard the HB just fine at 12 weeks. I was sent for an ultrasound and again there was no heartbeat detected. No heartbeat. We are totally devastated. I can't believe this is happening. I am scheduled for a D+C tomorrow but I started bleeding on the way home and passed a small, about 4.5 inch long completely intact baby boy about an hour and a half later. Eyes, nose, mouth, tiny hands, feet, fingers and toes all visible. Amazing and perfect and beautiful. I just can't believe it. We placed him in a little box and will bury him underneath a tree in my parents' yard. We named him Landen. I'm glad I got to hold him in my hands even if it was in the worst of circumstances. With a D+C I wouldn't have gotten the chance to see him.

It's amazing how much love, and then grief, we feel for such a little tiny person who we never got a chance to know. I feel so numb. My boyfriend is faring worse than me, he is a mess. We thought we were in the "safe" zone, especially at 15 weeks. I never thought this would happen to me..

Thank you all, it means a lot I am alternating between feeling ok, numb, anger, and complete sadness. My boyfriend asked if I wanted to get dinner and I screamed at him that no, I just wanted my baby back. I know it will get better with time, but right now I just want him back inside my belly with a strong heartbeat like we heard 3 weeks ago..

I had a m/c several years ago at barely 4 weeks and this feels a hundred million times worse. He looked perfect on the 12 week ultrasound, I just don't understand why this happened.

I know those feelings all too well. We lost our first baby at 12.5 weeks and we had had TWO ultrasounds where everything looked perfect. The second u/s was at 12 weeks! So literally a few days later I lost the baby It is so hard because like you said you feel all those feelings at once and your brain just cannot wrap around the "why"

I'm thinking of you guys and wishing you healing and love.
