Before I got Pregnant with my perfect Son, I miscarried my first pregnancy. I found out I was pregnant on March 1, 2006 and couldn't see a doctor until March 31th (Army hospital). When I could finally be seen, they couldn't find a heartbeat with the stethescope so got me in to have an ultrasound right then. There was no heartbeat or bloodflow to the baby, who was just over 7 weeks gestation..they told me to come back in a week, just to be sure, and when I did - same thing. They called it a "missed abortion" - wtf? Anyway..I guess I couldn't pass it myself so I had the option to wait and see, take a pill, or have a DNC. I chose to wait a week and nothing happened..so I opted for the DNC - but had to wait until April 28th to get it! Who knows how long I actually had it in me, not living, before I found out it was gone..I even went to my first Military Ball with it still in me and was terrified I'd wind up passing it while there. Thank God I didn't, but I still had two weeks to wait after that. Apparently I could have hemorrhaged if I did pass it on my own but didn't find that out until after I had the DNC. It was so scary, and one of the worst experiences of my life. My Husband and I conceived Our Little Man less than 5 months after I had the DNC..I thank God every day that I carried to full term and gave Birth to the most perfect and beautiful Baby ever created - and He is the most perfect, handsome, and amazing Kid today! =]
