Few questions (some sensitive questions)

I miscarried 4 days ago on April 21st. This is my first miscarriage so I'm at a complete loss.
Is there a way of finding out the sex of my baby? I have such a strong feeling that the baby was a girl, I want to name him/her. Sorry I'm just rambling. This is so hard.

I don't know the answer to your question. But I know that a lot of people here have given names that could be for a boy or a girl. I'm sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. Sad

Some personal questions, but I think it is possible sometimes to know the sex of the baby, did you miscarry at home and save anything? Or if you had a d&c, are they testing things, they may be able to tell that way.

I have a strong feeling my last loss was a boy, I'll probably never know, but I just feel it was a little boy. If you feel it was a little girl, I would pick a name for her! Hugs and prayers!

I am sorry for you loss. How far along were you and did you have a D&C? Usually the do testing if you have a D&C. If you feel it was a girl, then name her what ever you would like to name her. She was your baby. Maybe a name that can be used for either sex, like Morgan may work. Sending you hugs.

With my m/c I had a very strong sense that it was a girl and I gave her a girl's name. It depends on how far along you are. I wasn't able to have any testing done, but I still feel it was a girl.
