    Default So numb right now (m/c ment/ child ment)

    I am very saddened by the loss of my last pregnancy. This was the 5th miscarriage and would have been my 4th child. I am grateful for what I do have but the loss of a pregnancy for anyone is never easy. I hope it is ok to talk about this here, I feel like I need to talk and feel unsure where to.
    I had gone to the Dr. on Monday hoping to see my baby at 10 weeks moving around on the ultrasound, but there was no movement nor a heartbeat. I was sent to the radiology dept of the adjoining hospital and the ultrasound there showed the same, no more baby. I had to go back to my Dr's office and from there he explained to me about doing a laminaria on Wednesday and giving me cytotec(sp?) to help my body begin the process since it wasn't. I was scared but ok with this since this Dr is someone I feel confident with. So Wednesday I had the procedure done and by yesterday morning the Dr. did a D&C to make sure my uterus was all clear. It went well he said & I go back next week for a check up. I think then I will ask him to put me on something to get my periods to come regularly again. I can't take the pill though cause it causes problems for me. I just want to feel like a real woman again and not like I failed, even though I know I did what I could to stay healthy.

    So sorry for your losses. I don't think it matters if you have living children or not already, it's still the loss of all the hopes and dreams you had for that child as soon as you saw those 2 lines.

    Please continue to come here, even if you just lurk. It helps to know that others are feeling the same way you do.

    Sarah.

    I am so very sorry for your loss. I have also endured a series of m/c's and it's so very horrific.

    I welcome you to our board, eventhough I'm sorry you 'qualify' to be here. You have my heartfelt condolences.

    We all understand, and we all care about each other on this board. We care about you too, and we're going to help you through this.

    Cyber hugs,
    Nicole

    Hugs. I am so very sorry for all of your losses. I too have other children, but it doesn't make that loss any less sad. I have been where you were twice, meaning I went to that first appt full of hope and anticipation, only to have it squelched, and it hurts horribly. Please feel free to vent here any time, it has been a lifesaver to me.

    Big Hugs to all of you! I hate that any of us have had to endure what we have. I still feel odd and not myself yet. I am trying to stay positive and focus on what I can do.
