  • I wasnt really in any pain. I had light menstrual cramps but that was it. I had light spotting for maybe a week or 2...not even enough to use 1 pad a day. Im guessing your u/s today didnt go well?

  • Well with my experience with the molar that can turn into a major problem and if they can find out the cause that will help you with your grieving process...i know it helped me cope alot when i found out from my regular doctors what really happened

  • Yeah. This pregnancy was so diffictult. I know it only lasted 8 weeks, but its hard to deal with. I'm not sure how to grieve.. I mean do I cry, or do I think of it as "everything happens for a reason" I just dont know what to think right now ya know.
