First M/C

I don't know exactly what to say. I started bleeding yesterday and knew something was wrong eventhough it was brown. Once it turned pinkish, they told me to come in for an ultrasound. As soon as I saw the baby on the screen, I knew it was over. I was 11.5 weeks, but the baby had obviously stopped growing before then. It's hard- but it's harder having to wait till tommorrow for my D/C (?). I just want some closure and for the pregnancy part to be over. This is my first M/C- and I keep forgetting I'm not pregnant anymore. Anyways- this is a lot harder than I thought it would be, I didn't realize how connected I already felt to this baby and pregnancy. Anyways, I've lurked on this board before and know you guys are an awesome support system.

I am so sorry for your loss. :bigarmhug: Sending prayers for tomorrow.

They say there is a reason,
They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason,
Will change the way I feel,
For no-one knows the heartache,
That lies behind our smiles,
No-one knows how many times,
We have broken down and cried,
We want to tell you something,
So there won't be any doubt,
You're so wonderful to think of,
But so hard to be without.

Thanks ladies! Everything went really well with the D/C. I didn't realize it was actually considered surgery and done in a operating room. But I'm so glad, I had it done. It was too emotional draining to be pregnant when you know your not pregnant, plus I felt like a ticking timebomb just waiting for it to happen. Anyways, I appreciate your kind words!

So sorry for your loss... :bighug: I'm glad the D&C is over and went well. Take good care of yourself... I thought the emotional part was harder to deal with than the physical part.. :bigarmhug:
