I miscarried today. I'm still bleeding and cramping a little tiny bit, but apparently we had a blighted ovum and I've passed a ton of blood, clots, and a few hours ago, a plum-sized placenta. It started yesterday with some spotting that happened intermittently and overnight was 'calm'. This morning, things went downhill quickly and my midwife was here all day. She has gone to her part time job now, since I'm stable, but is coming back around 1 am, to help out, since Jett is still flu-ish and Shanon's trying to care for us both. I'm absolutely heartbroken....but in a tiny way, I'm relieved...this pregnancy hasn't felt 'right' the whole time. I'm at a loss for words.
I haven't been very active in this DDC, I guess because things never felt connected or attached or...or...or...I don't know. It just wasn't anything like my son's pregnancy, where I felt so bonded and lovey the whole time.
Well.....best wishes and love to all of you!
