And I am. Moderately severe cramps (taking ibuprofen), passing tons of clots. I'm going to see my OB on Monday because I just want more answers (do I need a D&C, what might have happened, when can we try again).
Would appreciate any stories about miscarriages at similar gestation. Doing okay right now, I know it will be an emotional journey.
I enjoyed getting to know you all, and will hopefully be back on the boards soon.

My M/C didnt happen naturally so had to have D&Cs but i did fall pregnant after the first within 3 months of trying again, the second was a while longer before falling pregnant again ... Hope you feeling better soon
Just take it easy, honor this pregnancy and baby for the gifts you did have, and heap blessings upon yourself. It took me several losses to get to that point tho.
Nine kids and four , living and learning all the time
It wasn't fun. It felt like labor. Bleeding was heaviest on the final day. I passed large clots - nothing recognizable as a baby, although one time I did pass something that looked just like a peanut shell. I saved the large clots in a baggie and had my own little funeral. Some sort of ritual makes one feel better I think.
I cried and cried - really wanted to talk it out, but we hadn't announced it and if you haven't experienced it, you can't really identify.........
I'm wishing you hugs and a hot cup of tea. Take it easy.
I did a blood test to figure my "deal" out and my doc (holistic) (but he still sent the blood to a regular lab for review) noticed my hormone DHEA was VERY low.
I asked him if that would effect my ability to get pregs and stay. And he said if I was a man, I would have Erectile Dysfunction (ED). (I am 26, can you imagine a 26 year old male with ED?)
Turns out my adrenal glands are over worked (and underpaid) and he put me on a supplement regiment that will hopefully give my adrenal glands a break.
do you feel stressed? do you have a hard time coping with stress?
I saw that you welcomed any personal stories so I thought I'd share with you mine.
I stand with you. It was SO hard to understand. And I am so sorry for your loss.
(and a hot shower/warm bath is really your best friend for the cramps...)
- baby boy arrived in Oct 2009!
I don't buy that too small to see, btw. I saw the ones I lost around 6 weeks. Very, very tiny but they looked exactly like the pictures for that age. You probably won't see anything, but don't be freaked if you do.
Take it easy, over doing can definitely make you bleed more, or cause you to start bleeding again after you thought you'd stopped.
