Devastating couple of days (m/c ment)

On Sunday at work, I went to the restroom and had a streak of bright red blood on the tissue. I went into panic mode and went to the ER. After four hours, blood work, and an ultrasound... The baby had no heartbeat. I should have been ten weeks two days along and the baby was measuring seven weeks three days. Needless to say I'm beyond devastated. This was my fifth pregnancy and I've never miscarried before. I followed up with my ob yesterday (which was ironically supposed to be my first ob appt). She did another u/s just to be sure, and confirmed what the ER said. I'm scheduled for a d&c tomorrow morning, which makes me want to scream. This whole situation tears me apart from the inside, the fact that I've been carrying around my baby with no heartbeat for three weeks and that tomorrow I have to have my precious sweet baby vacuumed out of me. At least I got to see his/her sweet tiny face on the u/s screen yesterday. This is so terrible I can't barely think straight. Im sorry if this was a little graphic, but besides DH I really don't have anyone else to talk to about this and my heart is broken.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Having a m/c is so devastating. I had one my first pregnancy and it took a long time to feel normal afterwards. Thinking of you.

I am so sorry for your loss:(

I know this may not help but I have had 2 missed miscarriages and I had to have D&Cs as well and I m so sorry that you have to go through that. If you need to talk feel free to message me.

Once again I am so sorry.

I'm so sorry. It's completely and totally devastating to lose a baby. I wish had words of comfort but I know only to well there are none. Know that I'm thinking of you and praying for you. If you like come join in over at the TTC after a Loss board there's a few girls posting there with me. Take care of yourself and give yourself time to rest and recoup after tomorrow.

Oh Krystal, I'm so sorry for your loss! I had a m/c between DS1 and DD, it was very painful, emotionally and physically. I am thinking of you and wishing you a quick recovery and healing.

I'm so sorry Krystal. I know exactly what it's like as I've been through four miscarriages since I had my last child. *hugs*

Thank you all so much for your kind words, I really appreciate it. The d&c went ok... As ok as it can go I suppose. Very light bleeding and the Motrin is taking care of any cramping there might be, as I'm not feeling anything. Just emptiness. After thinking about it, I think I might really want to try one last time, but I think I'll wait a year as I really want to get into better shape before going through another pregnancy. I really do wish you all the absolute best of luck with your sweet babies and will continue to stalk so I can read your precious birth stories.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It is most certainly a painful process, physically and emotionally. When I had this happen, I felt a ton of support on the TTCAL board, and found the more I realized how common it is, the less I questioned whether I could have done anything differently. Sending you peace at this difficult time.
