Well, I never thought I would be starting a thread like this one. However, yesterday I miscarried. I had bleeding all weekend and I think I just knew that the pregnancy was over, so I'm finding that I had a little preparation, mentally, and I'm coping pretty well, considering the circumstances. DH, on the other hand, says it feels like "being punched in the gut" so I feel bad for him. The poor partner, all he can do thru pregnancy, delivery, and bad news like this, is to be a bystander and try to be supportive. That can't be easy. Anyhow, the u/s showed that the m/c was complete so I'm relieved that a d&c is not necessary. I appreciate having been a part of this DDC for a while. Don't worry, I'll be back in a new DDC in a few months, I'm sure of that. Best wishes to all of you!

I'm so sorry for your loss, and for your DH too. SO many times, their grief is NEVER acknowledged by those around you, like they have no feelings. That was my DH's experience; a coworker gave him a card the last time, and it was a huge healing thing for him to know this person actually cared.

<<hugs>> to you all..... will you please pop in and let us know if you end up on another DDC??

I'm so sorry for your loss. Tell your DH we are all thinking of him as well. It must be really hard for him. Like songbird said, DH's often get overlooked during times like this. Take good care of yourself

Thanks for your support, everyone. It is amazing to me that complete strangers can reach out and be so caring. I appreciate it.

Yep, I'll let you know WHEN I end up on another DDC. (I guess I'm treading that fine line between being cocky and confident, but with both my pgcies we conceived on the first cycle trying, so I have every reason to believe I'll be pg again soon (after waiting 1 mo per CNM's suggestion). Thanks again and best wishes to you all!

Hi All-
As promised, I'm here to let you know that I'm back in another DDC!!!! I'm due Jan. 20th. I'm about 11.5 weeks along and we heard the h/b last week, so hopefully we are in the clear and will have smooth sailing here on out. My congrats to those of you with new babies, my labor vibes to those of you still waiting to deliver, and my hugs to those of you who are recovering after a loss.
