Oh Brambleberry, I'm so sorry for your loss.
Weekly Chat February 27-March 4 - Page 5
Thanks for the thoughts, everyone. I wasn't able to say much last night, but this morning I feel like I need to write some things down to get them out of my head.
Yesterday afternoon I went in for my first prenatal a few days early due to some very light spotting. When my doctor couldn't find the heartbeat (I was 10 weeks) she suggested we go ahead and do an US just for reassurance because of the spotting. There was no heartbeat. The fetus measured 9 1/2 weeks. It was so hard to see it so still on the screen. Now I wait to miscarry. I think I want to avoid a D & C, but if this goes too long I don't know. I'm a little scared of bleeding too much and not knowing how much blood is normal. I hate not knowing when or how this is going to happen and there is so little info out there. My doctor commented that 9 1/2 weeks was a little late to lose a fetus, and that has me a little concerned that there might be a bigger problem than just a random genetic abnormality. I haven't read anything about that anywhere though...
Brambleberry- I am so very sorry for your loss- it is devastating- I wish you peace, rest and strength. big hugs and lots of love. After my 2nd miscarriage- I had a battery of tests done- carotypes, clotting, saline utirine check, if you have any questions about them please PM me. RIght now just take care of your self and cross the try again bridges when you are ready
After my loss (which was only at 6w5d) I was actually pretty angry, and a few people who I told IRL (my sister and my SIL) were really sad for me, and it almost got to where I wished that I hadn't told them, because that's not how I felt, IYKWIM.
The Pregnancy Loss forum is very supportive, if you want some BTDT advice or opinions or experience with wait it out, what to expect, or a D and C.
