Hello, I'm Shannon. Yesterday I went to my third prenatal appointment and my doctor could not find a heartbeat. He did an ultrasound and confirmed that our baby had died. I would have been 15 weeks today. I will be having a D&C on Friday. I had two ultrasound already showing a growing bean with a heartbeat. I should have been shocked, but in all honesty, I knew before the appointment that this would happen. I was hoping I was wrong, but I knew. It wasn't a suprise, but it is still heartbreaking.
Child Mention/TTC mention
I have a beautiful 18 month old DD and she is a great source of comfort today, as is DH. I feel so lost, but she is keeping me grounded.
I also have a question about TTC after a D&C. I didn't want to ask my doctor yesterday, but how long does it usually take for things to go back to normal? Part of what is so difficult for me is the unknown of everything. I had made lots of plans around this pregnancy and now I have to change course. I want to TTC again as soon as possible. I know not everyone feels that way, but it brings me great comfort to think about it.
Thanks so much for listening.
