    Unhappy Dec. 17th -- I need cyber-hugs

    Today is the anniversary of the worst day in my life. I went for my routine u/s in 2002, blissfully unaware that our Alex had passed away (on Dec. 11th). I still 'felt pregnant', etc -- but I didn't know that I'd had a "missed m/c" 6 days before. There had been no signs that anything was wrong.

    I'll never forget when my "world" came violently crashing down on me in the ob/gyn's office. Alex was our first angel-baby, so I had no expectation that anything coud have gone wrong. I entered that office, happy and totally in love with my little baby. I came out absolutely shattered: devastated, heart broken and suddenly thrown into agonising grief, with the doctor's words echoing in my mind: "I can't seem to find the baby's heartbeat".

    And I was also in full "wishful thinking" denial, partially fueled by the doctor's suggestion that I come back in a week's time, if there was no change to my condition. You see, when I said "Are you sure?", he said "We can do another u/s in a week, to see how it's all going."

    Needless to say, I don't see that ob/gyn anymore.

    Anyway, thanks for reading. Your hugs would be very much appreciated today.

    Thanks,
    Nicole

    Hugs Nicole. I'm sorry hon. Yes, the first loss is terribly hard, because you are not expecting it.
