Like all of you I was hoping I wouldn't have to be here but,
this morning I went in for an u/s to follow up on a few things that didn't look right at my 7 week u/s. They couldn't find a heart beat and the baby was measuring 7 weeks and I should be 10 weeks.
I go today for another more high tech u/s then have the choice of either letting my body do it's thing or having a D&C.
I am just so devastated!
My husband told me the day I found out I was pregnant that he wanted a divorce so I've had two major losses in the last 2 months.
I am so sorry. It is difficult enough dealing with the loss of a child but having the added stress of a bad marriage is going to be very challenging. I think you are going to be grieveing on my levels. Have you and you husband being speaking at all during your pregnancy? Have you told him about the loss?
I wish I could be there for you. I am so sorry for the pain that you are experiencing. PM me if you need ot talk.
Hi there, im so sorry you have had to come here. I know what a shock you must have had as i went for my 10-11 week u/s a few weeks ago to find my baby had died at around 8.5 weeks. I never thought it would happen to me. After alot of thought and advice from friends who had been through the same tragedy i decided to opt for a D+C as after 3 weeks my body wasnt doing it on its own. It was no where near as bad as i thought it would be, it was more emotionally draining than physically. Physically, i had heavy bleeding and period type cramps for 2 days, the cramps went after this and the bleeding has been light on and off since (its been 1 week and 3 days). For me personally i dont think i could have handled a natural m/c plus i was told there was a risk i would need the d+c afterwards anyway if my body didnt m/c properly on its own. You have to decide what feels best for you. Once again im so sorry for your loss, there is some great support and advice here and i have found it has helped me alot. (((HUGS)))
I am so sorry that you are going through this. I wish there were something I could do. I agree with PP, when it rains it pours.
We went in for a 10 week u/s and our baby had stopped growing at 8 weeks 2days. Since my body wasn't m/c naturally after 2 weeks, we were given the option of D&C or meds to induce m/c. We went with the meds because there is less recovery time, and well, it isn't surgery. If the meds hadn't worked, I would have had to have a D&C. I don't know if that's an option for you, maybe that is something you could ask about. Then you wouldn't have to wait and it might keep you from having to have a D&C too. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or want to talk. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
So sorry about your loss. It will get better I promise you. Come here as often as you need. It is a wonderful resourse. Take care of yourself and go easy on yourself. I hope you have a great dr. and he will take good care of you and respect your wishes. Big hugs!
I'm soo sorry for both of your losses. Take care of yourself. Put yourself first. I can't help you with the divorce situation any, but I found what really helped me after my miscarriage was to put myself in another situation. I joined weight watchers because I needed to lose the weight. It gave me something else to focus on. Maybe joining us here is exactly what you need. But take care of yourself!!! (((HUGS)))
