I thought I'd introduce myself. Thank you Christa and Lynn for telling me about this board. My name is Rachel and I very recently had a miscarriage. I went in for an u/s last monday. I should have been 11 wks and the baby only measured 7 wks. I never got to hear a hb. I miscarried on my own the next day (12/4). I'm handling it really well, I've been using this site and the internet to help me get through it. It has really helped me to talk about it, both IRL and virtually. This was my 4th pregnancy, which followed three uncomplicated pregnancies. I feel very fortunate to have the three wonderful children that I do. Because of my history this was unexpected and I've gained an enormous amount of respect for anyone who's had a miscarriage before. It's been almost a week and I feel ready to move on and try again. I feel like my body (and brain) had already prepared me for what was happening. I'm just waiting for my body to return to normal and to get an ok from the doctor. I just gathered up the courage to change my signature this morning and I wasn't sure what date to put for losing my angel? What date did you use? The age of the baby, when you found out, or when you miscarried?
I'm thankful to have a group to join and I look forward to sharing our journeys together.
