I had my first appointment today. And I should be 8wks, but the baby stopped growing at 6 and there is no heart beat. I somehow knew something was wrong. I wasn't as sick, and just had a feeling I can't explain. This is my 3rd loss, but the first time I got to see a baby in there. I have had no signs of anything wrong, just not very sick, I usually get HG. No bleeding, no nothing, so I'm hoping this happens on its own, so I don't need a D&C. I am almost relieved to know what I kinda already knew, and this process can begin and other chances can come along if its meant to be.
