Well, I went in today for my 16 week midwife appt. I have been feeling great, no cramps,spotting, etc. She used the doppler and didn't get a heartbeat. Moved on to the ultrasound machine, and no hearbeat. Just a perfect looking babe who stopped developing about 2 weeks ago. So, I guess I'm leaving this DDC. I want to wish all of you many happy days during your pregnancy and beyond.

I'm so very, very sorry to hear this. I went through a missed miscarriage earlier this year and it was the single saddest event in my life-- and mine was earlier on, so I can imagine that it happening at week 16 would be far more devastating. This just sucks.

I suffered the same loss in September. I am so sorry for you. Do whatever you need to heal. The pain still comes in waves now even when I thought I was over it.

Best of luck,

Nicole

I am sorry for your loss. Please consult a hematologist to test for a blood-clotting disorder-- late miscarriage can be a sign of excessive blood clotting. (BTDT)
