    Default I'm out too - M/C mentioned

    Hi Everyone,

    I know I haven't been very active, and I'm not sure if it's cause I had a premonition or just wasn't feeling up to it. I've been thinking about you all recently, but never got around to updating. We were away for Thanksgiving for almost two weeks and I just started a new part-time job last week.

    So, I lost the baby. I started bleeding last weekend and didn't have a good feeling about it. I tried not to freak out, it wasn't a ton, but enough to be concerned about. I waited till Monday to call the doctor's office and they had me come in that afternoon. By then, I wasn't bleeding very much, so I was feeling ok about it. Well, the doctor did an ultrasound and I could tell almost immediately there was something wrong. There was no heartbeat. I should have been 10w6d and he said the baby was only measuring 7 weeks.

    Monday night was pretty rough, DH and I mourned our loss together. The hardest part for me was trying to decide how to handle it, pills at home or D&C. Luckily, I didn't have to make that decision. Things happened naturally yesterday. I'm feeling fine today. It's still a little emotional, but overall I feel okay with it. As I was researching on the internet, I read a statistic that said 1 in 4 pregnancies end in a miscarriage. This was my 4th pregnancy, so I make a pretty good statistic. I feel so fortunate to have had three pregnancies with no complications. I think DH and I are in a good place. When he got home, I was in tears and said, "So now what?" and he said, "Well, we try again." So there's your answer. We will probably be trying again fairly soon. I'm glad that the only people we told was our immediate family because I am NOT looking forward to having to tell them this.

    I wish the rest of you the best of luck!! I will probably be checking back in occasionally to see how you're all doing. Take care. Rachel

    I'm so, so sorry for your loss. I'm glad at least that things happened naturally and you didn't have to add any more stress on yourself. Take care of yourself.

    My first pregnancy ended in m/c at 8 weeks, and we were able to get pregnant with DD within 2 cycles. I wish you all the best of luck in the future!

    Big hugs.

    Oh Rachel. I'm so sorry to read this. I'm glad you were able to m/c naturally though, with no additional trauma or meds. I'm glad to hear DH is on board with trying again soon. *hugs* and stay well.

    i am so sorry for your loss. I have been pregnant 5 times now and have 1 daughter. For me the worst one was when i had to take meds to resolve, and should have been 20 weeks and the baby only measured 8. having a natural m/c was so much less trauma on my body. I wish you luck in the future with getting pregnant and will look for you on the boards.
