I had my worst fear confirmed today. After a second Ultra Sound, my baby measuring 9w 5d had no heart beat. No longer a viable pregnancy. Now that I have seen the baby, I don't know if I can handle watching it pass. My heart is in pieces but I want to have a good chance of conceiving and carrying a full term baby again. I know I should feel thankful for the three beautiful girls I have and I do absolutely, but I feel awful. Suggestions?Answer Question

you know going through this is so hard and I am so sorry that you're going through this. Last month I had a miscarraige and it was one of the hardest things I had to go through. And reading your Q, it brought back all that memories.
I actually had to carry on the "pregnancy" till the doc's decided that I could either take pills to expell the "tissue"( the preg. was a blighted ovum,the baby stopped growing at 5 wks.) or have a d&c. I didn't want to go under and the pills he said I could take vicodin for the pain. I ended up releasing the "tissue" before the preocedure took affect. I cramped and bled 14 days even after the baby was gone..

Losing this baby was the hardest my husband and I had to go through together. Esp. my DH being a marine, he was suppose to go out to the field and I wasn't sure if he was going to be there for all that I was going through. But they did let him stay and if it wasn't for his support I don't know what I would do.
I know it's hard for you honey but imagine ifyou didn't lose the baby and there might have been some complications, it might have been worse in the long run. the doc even told me, that when this happens, it's our body's way of saying that there is something wrong...

When this was happening to me, what made me get through it all was not only my husband but the support of my mom and family,respecting my wishes. I didn't want to accept any calls until things slowed down and we as a family had a chance to heal. Esp.when we kept repeating the same things,I started to feel numb. Aside from healing and coping, deciding what you want to do is completely up to you.
I didn't want any surgical procedure because I had my csection and my gallbladder removed in one year so surgery it exhausting..but the pills that they gave me wasn't bad. Just lots of cramping. I hope things get better for you and your family. It'll be hard but you can and will be strong! muchlove..Lisa
