Never in my life would I have thought that I'd find myself introducing myself here. I found out the day after Christmas that I was pg, then yesterday I started miscarrying. I went to my ob this morning, and he confirmed my worst fear. I was about 8 weeks along. I knew that I was going to have problems with the pregnancy bc 1. I have high BP, and 2. I still have some weight to get off from previous pregnancy.
I do have to say though, I'm not nearly as upset as I was before I found out about the m/c. I've been on cloud 9 all week and now this.
I'm sorry for your loss. Nobody ever thinks they they will end up here, it's just something that happens to us. I don't think that carrying extra weight contributes to a m/c, nor do I think high BP is an automatic bad thing. Very rarely is it something we did or didn't do that causes a m/c.
I'm really sorry for your loss. The ladies here are great and we all know what each other is going through. Hang in there-i know how hard it is, I've been there twice. Especially at this time of the year it is difficult.
I am so sorry that you had to find your way here sweetie. It's like a sh*t club that no one wants to be in.

You might not have wanted to come here in the first place, but now that life has dealt you this crap hand you will be glad that you found us, hopefully. I am glad of this board every day!
