a new angel baby for God to cherish

Postby redneckgurl26 » Mon Jul 15, 2013 9:17 pm

I just found out a week ago today that I was pregnant and I found out last night after going to the ER that my beautiful baby didn't make it. I had a second opinion ultrasound today and the results were the same. No heartbeat found and the baby measured at 8 weeks and 3 or 4 days gestation. I do not know how far along I'm supposed to be but going by my lmp it 14 weeks. I am completely lost and an emotional train wreck. I have had 2 previous miscarriages and no live births. My first miscarriage was a blighted ovum and my second I found at 10 weeks by ultrasound the baby died at 8 weeks. It is a little comforting to me that at least this baby has a big brother or sister (6 years old) watching over him or her. I am hoping to be able to find out what may be causing these recurrent first trimester losses but I know that I may never know. I need help decided if I should go to the appt my midwife made for me tomorrow to discuss my feelings on everything or just call in the morning and have them go ahead with scheduling the d&c. Any opinions would be great.

Im so sorry for your loss. I got my bfp May 28th. Went in for an u/s thurs and they told me that baby did not grow past 6wks4days even though i was past 9 wks. I had been spotting from day one and they told me not to worry bout it. Spent Friday night and Sat morning in ER since I started to bleed severely and in extreme pain. I am trying to play tough girl that im not affected but inside im just torn. On top of everything all the meds have constipated me for 5 days. Then my m/c is stil incomplete so just waiting for the heavy bleeding and pain to return.

If your miscarriage is incomplete and the bleeding and pain had lessened I know from past experience you need to call your ob right away to schedule a d&c. With my last miscarriage the bleeding was so bad and it was incomplete so they had to do an emergency d&c. I hope you don't have to go through that but I would definitely call and discuss it with your doctor. I have a d&c scheduled for tomorrow morning due to my past history. It is a surgery so there are some risks involved but your healing time after the fact is a lot quicker and you don't have to worry about the possibility of it not being complete. They are going to do testing this time on me and the baby so hopefully we will find out what is happening.

Oh gosh. Im so sorry. I am just in a whirlwind of confusion and emotion. I am cramping but it could be since I was finally able to go poo after 5 days. Its just been a crazy week.

I hope your procedure goes well.

I found out Sunday the baby didn't make it. Progression stopped at 8 weeks 4 days and I was supposed to be 14 weeks approximately. Had them do a second opinion ultrasound so we were sure before we made any decisions.

I had the d&c yesterday morning. All went well. They sent some of the tissue of to do testing on the baby (chromosomal I think). Bleeding only lasted for a few hours but cramping had progressively gotten worse. Pain meds help some but sometimes not so much. I was up all night in pain. Finally fell asleep at 5 then woke up at 6 and have been up since. An starting to doze now since I was able to take pain meds again at 8:30 so its kicking in and I'm feeling better. My post-op follow up is next Friday and I will find out then what testing they are wanting me to do. I will let y'all know what we find out if anything.

Oh lord! im so sorry. I am still here with the sac inside. My ob really doesnt want to do the d&c. Plus I am affraid something bad might happen. But to be very honest im not sure i want to preggers right away. With how i felt being pregnant and everything im going through is really making me second guess my wanting a baby.

Never second guess wanting a baby. This is my third loss and only makes me more determined to find the cause if there is one and try again. I'm currently dealing with left over tissue after the d&c apparently even though no longer alive this baby wanted to stay where it was. I still have cramping on and off but no more bleeding. I'm hopeful though that with my next cycle that what tissue is left will pass and in 3 months we can go back to ttc. I hope all is well with you.
