In a very odd sort of way I was relieved that the u/s didn't show a hb. B/c if it had, while I still had all this pain and worry and stress, then I would have been deeply confused and would have felt that my instincts were totally wrong. And since my instincts are what saved Sophie's life, I now put a lot more stock into them. Finding out that I had imagined/misinterpreted the dread I spoke of at the beginning of this post would have made me lose a lot of confidence in my ability to read my body. Does that make any sense?
You are in my thoughts.
Mama to add 10/05; ds 3/09, and two angels. Expecting my 2nd rainbow baby 2/15!
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.

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.
: for you
Mama to 9 so far:Mother of Joey (20), Dominick (13), Abigail (11), Angelo (8), Mylee (6), Delainey (3), Colton (2) and Baby 8 and Baby 9 coming sometime in July 2013. If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!
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.
