Guin
I understand that - it makes total sense. You are very in tune with your body; you definately need to listen to those instincts.
Mama
You are in my thoughts.

I'm sad for your loss, but I can understand how a blighted ovum (I'm guessing this is what you had) can seem like less of a loss than an embryo - but I'm also happy for you that this situation just confirmed your confidence in your God-given sense of "knowing". We should all be so alert as to heed it. Be well!

Guin, I am so sorry that you are going through this, but I understand how you are feeling. When I had a blighted ovum, I also felt much less grieved because I knew it never was a "baby."

I hope your D&C or m/c is as easy and painfree as possible for you. I will miss you and be thinking of you in the days to come.

Ever-evolving mama to my beautiful Brynn, and my little dimple-face Noah .

I'm so sorry for your loss Guin.

I too had a blighted ovum my first pregnancy. I found out at 8 weeks and began miscarrying at 10 weeks. In hindsight I wish I had gotten the D&C because I bled for 3 weeks straight and then had no period or ovulation for 6 months. i found out later I wasn't supposed to bleed that long. So a D&C at least controls a lot of that.

Take it easy and nurture yourself.

I'm so sorry Guin, but its good that your trust in your body is still intact. For someone who is so in-tune with herself to think she's loosing that ability must be very frightening, like loosing one of the senses.

Its sounds like a good thing to be proactive about the D&C. Doing always seems easier than waiting for the unknown to me. Treat yourself well.

Oh my gosh, that just made me burst into tears. Our babies really are dreams, dreams that float by, until finally one floats down to earth and embraces life. I think of the air today, moist, cool, fresh, the smell of dreams waiting to come true.

I'm sorry for your loss. From reading your posts, it obvious that you are very intuitive and in tune with your body. I hope you find yourself pregnant again soon.

So sorry for what you've had to go through. I am encouraged by reading all these posts about the support you've gotten here. I've had concerns of m/c these last two weeks, telling my 3 year old who is so excited would be so very hard. I said a prayer for you, your husband and your children.:
