I'm out. Good luck with your pregnancies, ladies and I hope I can join you again soon!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

I went in for my 10, (almost) 11 week ultrasound last Wednesday and they found nothing.    Just an empty sac.   Blighted ovum.   I chose to have a D&C since my husband is leaving for China on Friday and I didn't want to wait around for things to happen naturally.   I have a 6 year old to take care of alone and I just wanted to be on the other side of things before my husband left for his 3 week trip.   

 

We were initially in shock, somewhat, I think.    I had the procedure (which was emotionally very hard but physically pretty simple and quick) and came home.    The sadness started to really set in the next day and we decided to go away to the coast for the weekend to grieve together and try to make the best of the weekend for our daughter.   I've had lots of ups and downs since then - it's been about 6 days since we found out, lots of crying, anger, and anxiety.    The hormones are really tough.    I gave myself the weekend to drink, cry and grieve in whatever way I had to and then we came back to town to try to move forward.    Today I went to the gym, took my daughter to outdoor school and saw a movie with some friends.    It felt like a more normal day and I have hope that each day will get easier.    I am looking forward to the day when we can start trying to get pregnant again.    Right now it's very hard to let go of the pregnant future I had planned for the summer and beyond.    Physically I feel okay other than some cramping.

I am so sorry Mumma.

I am glad that you have taken some time for yourself to process and begin grieving.

I am thinking of you Mumma, and I hope that you get to meet a new little one soon xxxxx

so sorry. I had a blighted ovum back in 2007 and we decided to miscarry naturally. The hormones after the miscarriage were horrible. I was so incredibly sad and I had also started dreaming about what the pregnancy would be like. So hard, my heart goes out to you.

Oh...I am so sorry.  It sounds like you are grieving in the most natural and healing way.  I hope you find comfort and peace soon.

I'm also out of the December group.

 

I had some brown discharge for a couple days at 6 weeks and held my breath while the doctors poked and prodded at me, but unfortunately I had a miscarriage at 7 weeks.

 

Miscarriage has to be one of the most isolating and lonely experiences in life, so I'm glad there are forums like this to remind you that you're not alone.

 

Hopefully I'll get to be part of the March, 2013 group. Good luck to you all

I am out as well. 

We waited 9 days for another ultrasound.
Betas were looking stellar, then dropped slightly, which can happen in week 8.

Ultrasound showed sac still empty.

I wish you all the best stress free pregnancies.
