I've had so much time to ponder about all this, and honestly, I'm doing alright. In my heart I just knew there wasn't going to be a baby there today. I think I went through my grieving when I first found out. Its better (for me) to have found out this way, this early, than to have made it to 10 weeks next week and then not hear the heartbeat at my appt. I think that definitely would have been emotionally harder to bear.
So, my next step is to see the OB tomorrow afternoon. I think I'm going to opt for a D&C rather than a natural or chemical m/c. I just don't want to have this continue. I want my body and life to return to normal. Its been a harrowing three weeks since I first started spotting. My mom works at the surgical center and I hope the OB can get me scheduled in early Wednesday morning.
That's about all I have to report for now. Thanks again for so many thoughts and prayers for me. I really appreciate it.
I wish you all the BEST of everything in the rest of your pregnancies, and happy healthy babies come September! I'll be thinking of you.
I had a blighted ovum a few years ago and opted for the d&c as well....I just hated the idea of feeling pregnant and nothing being there.
, mama. I'll be thinking of you.
I was so hoping your rollercoaster was going to go up up up. I hope you have a quick recovery and feel yourself again relatively soon. Thank you for keeping us updated - we will miss you!!
My pregnancy before this one was a blighted ovum too. It was difficult to come to terms with the fact that there was never a baby there at all.
There's hope around the corner and lots of support on the pregnancy loss threads here.
Take care of yourself.
