Bad news (m/c ment)--Updated

We went to the doctor on Tuesday and had our first ultrasound. The baby was measuring only 6.5 weeks (I was 8 weeks at that point) with no heartbeat. I'm scheduled to have a D&C next Weds, which seems like an eternity away, because I haven't miscarried on my own.

I am sad, more sad than I can really rationalize, because I know this happens and it was very early and it's natures way and blah blah blah. I will be OK, though. We're going to give it a couple of cycles and try again.

I am really ready to feel normal again. I'm still feeling nauseous and tired, which sucks.

Don't turn off your siggys, I always love seeing the April '09 kiddos (and I see one at home every day--thank goodness I have my little Viv!).

UPDATE:

Well, I had my surgery last Wednesday. I was very anxious about it, but I was extremely sedated and slept through the whole thing. No pain and almost no bleeding afterward. I went back to work Thursday but took Friday and the long weekend off. I really needed it, and I am feeling much better physically and emotionally today. Thank you all for the kind words.

Aww, so sorry Mandy. I hope that you feel back to "normal" soon, and that you get that BFP quickly!

Still thinking of your Mandy. It got a lot better for me once I had gone through with the miscarriage itself, I hope it brings you some relief too. I hope the next week goes quickly for you.
