I hate writing these as much as I hate reading them. Needless to say, I didn't get good news at my appointment today. The doppler couldn't find a heartbeat and the ultrasound showed a baby that stopped growing around 7 1/2 weeks, which is when I lost my first babe. I plan on having a D&C on Wednesday since my body is obviously not good at letting go of pregnancies.
At the moment I'm crying a lot, but I don't feel overly sad. I've been through this twice before, so it isn't a new pain, just another disappointment. I guess it's just weird in that I wasn't even sure if I wanted another baby and we weren't trying to have this one. I guess this pregnancy showed me that I actually want another baby, which is good. When I say good, I mean that it's good that I was able to come to a conclusion. I'm sure that my SO and I will start actually trying after all of this passes, so I'm sure I'll be back on these boards someday.
I wish all of you luck on your pregnancies!
I'm not even sure what words can convey the sadness I feel for you. This must be so hard. Hugs to you, and I hope you find comfort, in some way, in your new realization that you would be happy growing your family. I wish you all the luck in the world with your next attempt.

Oh mama I am so sorry. Many hugs. I am glad that you were able to come to a decision but sorry that it will not be this little one. So sorry.

Living in a very large midwestern city with a wonderful guy, an AMAZING boy wonder, and 1 ancient cat. Missing our 2nd boy wonder, lost Feb 2011 during labor on his due date. Now possibly going back down the rabbit hole, with a BFP on 8/11/11, and a due date of April 10, 2012.
I'm so very sorry.
Glad to hear that you've come to a decision to keep trying after your D&C; that's when I got successfully pregnant with DS, so best wishes to you!
DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
Thanks everyone. I appreciate your sentiments. I had the D&C yesterday and everything seemed to go well.
ASusan- I also became successfully pregnant after a D&C. I've never been able to have a natural miscarriage (my body won't let go), so maybe I just need to get everything cleaned out and start from scratch. I definitely don't have a problem getting pregnant, just keeping it in there. I'm not discouraged, though, since my DS is proof that I can successfully carry a babe beyond full term. :)
I don't know if many of you remember me, but I just wanted to post an update. I just had a positive pregnancy test this morning! I'm only 4 weeks, but I'm hopeful that this one will stick! I can't believe I got pregnant again so quickly. I had one period and then bam! :) I hope that all of you are growing beautifully and I'm excited to be back on the forums again (albeit the August one).
Congratulations!!!! That is what happened when I miscarried in May and can't believe that I am now 21wks. Good luck this time around and sending you tons of sticky vibes.
