Sad News

After a little bit of bleeding yesterday, I called my OB's office and they had me come in for an ultrasound just to make sure everything was okay. I didn't have any accompanying cramping and the blood was brown, not red, so it was old blood, but it made me nervous anyway.

Chris and I got to the appointment this morning and I knew right away that something was wrong. I couldn't see the blinking heart. She tried all different angles and agreed that the baby stopped growing and the heart stopped beating.

We met with a midwife who suggested a D&C as soon as we were comfortable, rather than letting nature take its course, which could take weeks. So we scheduled a D&C for tomorrow.

You always have that thought in the back of your mind, "What would I do if I miscarried" but you never really think it'll actually happen to you. But it did happen and I'm utterly disappointed and sad. But we'll get through this and move forward and hopefully soon enough I'll have good news to share.

I still plan on continuing this blog and keeping everyone updated on our family!

Amy- I am so sorry. I miscarried my first pregnancy too, and it is not fair. I'm really sorry this happened to you. Let me know if you want to talk about it. I'll be thinking of you and your husband.

If any woman is strong enough to get through this and move on, it's you. It won't be long before you and Chris get all that you wish for.
