Hi I'm Mary & have 3 boys...my 2nd pregnancy ended in a messy m/c. We discovered the loss at 13 weeks 5 days during a scan. It was devastating to us. We waited almost 2 weeks for my body to process the loss, but instead of the pregnancy ending, my uterus continued to grow. It had no idea the baby had passed weeks before. I had 5 scans done during this time and had a choice of a D&C or induction. I chose induction with Cytotec. Which failed miserably. I went in at 16 weeks 5 days for a manual extraction of the "remaining tissue".
My next pregnancy was smooth and the birth was an amazing homebirth. My fourth pregnancy was smooth also with a crappy birth experience. I'm hoping this little one is just fine and I will be getting a scan done within the next few weeks to ease my mind. It was a huge surprise to us knowing that we had lost the baby & it was never dectected...I really like the early u/s scans for this reason.
