Hi Ladies- Just updating on my week long roller coaster ride. I saw my OB today and still no growth, no heartbeat. I have been bleeding all week, but nothing has passed. He feels it will soon. He gave me the choice of having a D&C, but I can't put myself through that. If I am still riding along like this in a week, he wants me to call and schedule. It is so sad. I know I have not been very optimistic, but at 45, I had to be guarded. I think you try and protect your heart, but in the end, was that ever possible in the first place? So, there it is, 3 losses in 4 years. I am going through all the Whys and what ifs today, My faith in God has really been tested this time....what can I say.
Good luck to each and every one of you and your babies. I will lurk from time to time to see how you are all progressing. Thanks for all the wonderful support when I had no one else to talk to. I am glad though that we did not share our news with others, that would be even more painful to get through.

Hi Julie,
My heart goes out to you. 3 losses is a lot, I had one last year and it hurt like I never thought it would, no matter how much you rationalize it. And don't let anybody tell you otherwise.
From a doctor's perspective (I am a doctor), if you continue bleeding and do not pass products of conception you may have to have a D&C because retained products can cause some nasty problems, and that too would put an end to the bleeding. But I can understand how you feel about putting yourself through a D&C.
So sorry!!!

Hi Julie,

It is hard to suffer a miscarriage.
