Still, with the spotting, she got me in for an u/s to see if I had a previa or what was going on with the bleeding. The abdominal u/s barely picked up a (non-moving) little blob, so she switched to a transvaginal transducer. I could tell immediately there was no movement, no blood flow/hb, it wasn't the size it should have been, and the u/s tech confirmed that it had not developed past 8w (I was 12w5d). So now I wait. and wait. and wait. My mw is bringing some tinctures in about an hour or so to helpfully get things started, we're monitoring for infection since it's been so long (I've been on 50mg sublingual progesterone, so that probably has impeded the passing). My 6yo DS is really sad, too. DH is taking a half day at work & should be home soon--which is good because I'm pretty much a basketcase right now. We tried for 18 months to get pg, so now I kind of feel like all that failure has come crushing back on me. If the m/c doesn't begin in earnest by Friday, I think I will ask my mw to get me started with a cytotec induction at home. I'm not good with waiting.
