No change in U/S; D&C tomorrow
Tue, 03-23-2010 - 11:01am

There was no heartbeat detected as well as no change in the growth.  So, we decided to have a D&C tomorrow and close this chapter of the book as soon as possible.  I will have my bloodwork drawn in about 2 weeks and they will run some tests on the 'baby' to see its chromosomes.

It still is very hard to pull myself away from the "happy pregnant thoughts" I had just a few weeks ago when I was thinking about the baby's room, names, wearing maternity clothes, etc.  A very good friend of mine is pregnant (just 2 weeks ahead of where I would be) and her u/s yesterday came back perfect.  I had visions of us with huge bellies pal-ing around ...... and it makes me sad that all those thoughts have gone away.

I truly believe that this is all part of God's plan....but it still hurts to go through.

Oh Monica, I am so very very sorry. That is so hard with having a friend that close to you too, ugh, life just isn't fair sometimes.

I pray the d&c is quick and painless for you tomorrow, I'll be thinking of you.

Monica, I am so sorry. Although I know it's so devastating to go through a loss, I hope the D&C brings you some closure and that you will get results with the chromosome testing to let you know if there was a reason. I understand about it being hard to pull away from the pg thoughts because no matter how cautious we are, we can't help but think about a future with the baby. Thinking of you and sending you lots of healing vibes.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope things go well tomorrow and the tests can shed some light on this and maybe take you one step closer to a safe and healthy pregnancy, which I hope comes very soon!
