What great scan results, cameragirl and momathomas!
Love those gummy bears!!!
Scan today showed a 6w3d embryo, heartbeat has ceased. I should have been 8w1d. This pregnancy is over for me. Good luck all.
I'm so sorry for your loss.
All these losses break my heart! I am so sorry for you Ardent. This is not fair!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just read through this whole thread and I was really rooting for you, Ardent. Best of luck to you, and I am so sorry for your loss.
me: 5 w 6 days, going in for first ultrasound at 7 weeks on August 11th. I think I'll feel safe when the baby is in my arms, but a lot safer at 13 weeks.
I've had 1 loss, maybe more that were "late" periods, not sure...I have one 10 year old dd.
can't wait to know something. Anything.
Oh Ardent I'm so sorry
So sorry, Ardent. So sorry to all the Mamas that have ever lost a baby.
Ardent, I am so sorry for your loss. My 2 losses were like that, finding out at the ultrasound that the baby had passed and measures 6 1/2 weeks. The pregnancy and birth loss forum here was a wealth of information and support for me, you might want to check it out.
Our Dr. appt is Friday afternoon. I almost feel like I am waiting to find out if I am pregnant, is the baby alive or not?
Ardent I'm so, so sorry.
Sagewinna and the rest of the mamas waiting to hear, I'm thinking positive thoughts for all of you :)
I'm so sorry to those of you who had bad news.
I had my first US today, 9wks 1 day. There was a heartbeat! 167 bpm and length is measuring 9wks 3 days.
I'm still in the surreal boat too. You'll notice I hardly ever post but I read every day. *sigh*
I am trying to force myself to get a grip and have some confidence by August 23rd when I finish my 12th week. I'm not sure I will ever get to be pregnant again and I really really want to get a chance to enjoy it. I can't wait to be able to feel movement; I think that will really help. And we're going to go for an elective 3D scan somewhere around 18 weeks. We did that with DD and it really helped her seem like a real baby we would get to take home.
"Going through the motions" hits the nail on the head. I know I'm pregnant. I have some symptoms... I've had an ultrasound / heard heartbeat.... I can feel the fundus. Still doesn't feel real.
Yeah add me to the going through the motions group. It is really hard to get connected and excited. I have my next US August 31st so hopefully that will help make it real.
Sagewinna: How did it go yesterday?
We had a heartbeat and everything looked good, much to my disbelief! Just... I did not expect anything besides what happened the past 2 times, yk? My Dr. asked if we were going to have another homebirth and I told her I hadn't thought that far at all!
I'm so happy for you, Sagewinna! I had a similar moment with my Doc where he asked something about my wife's role during the birth and I was like, "uh...we haven't gotten anywhere near that topic yet." I think I left the poor man with the impression my wife wasn't excited about the baby -- whoops!
I've not had a miscarriage before, but after three years of infertility... I keep thinking I'm gonna get to the doc and find out it's all in my head. It doesn't feel real at all. Hopefully tomorrow's ultrasound will help it sink in - I'm so excited!
It's funny because the ultrasound made it real for about 24 hours, then the doubt crept back in... *sigh*
Yay! BEST sound in the world :D
Healthy heart beat! DH managed to record it on his phone... soooo cool!!!!
So had my first midwife appointment today and even though she was not able to pin point the heart beat for very long she did find it the first time and she went to turn up the volume and she lost it and found it again and I think i heard it but she had a hard time keeping it steady but I go back next week and she said we should be able to hear it alot more clearly. YAY :) Did not realize how relived it made me feel to hear it.
Congrats to all the recent HB finders!!
