I went for my first US today, and they couldn't find a hb. They think the baby stopped growing almost 2 weeks ago. The placenta had continued to preform, thus the pregnancy symptoms and the 4 lbs I have gained in the last 2 weeks.....The problem is with the holiday they can't schedule a D/C until Friday, so I have 3 days over Thanksgiving to sit in limbo. Kind of depressing. I have had 3 mc's before, all the same drill, baby stops growing but for some reason my body does not spontaneously abort. Dr said there must be some genetic mismatch between my h and me and they could run tests, but there is no correction, so what's the point?
We have 5 beautiful, healthy, kiddos. I didn't even know I wanted another one until this gift. Now I wonder if we should just call it a day, and not put ourselves through this again. My dh is always travelling with work so the odd of him being home when I need him are less than 10%. I feel like I have some time since this one happened on our first try, I just don't know if I have the strength to live with the stress of pg at 39 pushing 40.
Sorry for being down, hope to not sadden the whole thanksgiving thing. Just really needed to know someone was listening.
