Just when I thought that I was out of the danger zone, I had a sudden and complete miscarriage today. I waited until twelve weeks to tell friends and most of our family ( I told my Mom & sisters at 8 weeks after we saw the heartbeat on the u/s). And then today, at 12w 5d, I had a weird sensation in my belly and by the time I got to the bathroom I was gushing blood. It was so sudden and unexpected that I still can't even believe it.
This is my first miscarriage and I didn't even know it could happen like this, no warning, no cramping, no spotting, so sudden and complete and just over.
I wish I could be more positive about it all, but I am just devastated. I felt so helpless, and caught off-guard, especially since I'd really started feeling more energetic and ravenous and like I was headed into the wonderful, "almost nothing bad ever happens here" second trimester.
Anyway, I don't usually get online that often, but I have really enjoyed being a part of this group, and reading all your witty and thoughtful comments and questions made this journey through the trying first trimester a lot more fun and a lot less lonely.
Best of luck to everyone and God bless your September cuties!
