We had the ultrasound at the midwife's office, and though they could find the baby, it is now measuring 6 weeks 2 days, at almost 12 weeks along, and no heartbeat. It's been suggested that the problem is very likely due to the fact that my husband recently came back from his deployment in Iraq, and he was exposed regularly to heavy radiation on his job repairing the radars. We will be trying again once a year's time has passed since his homecoming. Hopefully that will do the trick. At least we know we can get pregnant. :)

I am so sorry to see this. First deployment, and now this. My husband just came back too, so I can easily put myself in your shoes, with the level of emotion that involved. I am sorry you are experiencing this now, but I absolutely *love* your attitude and outlook. Good luck!!

So very sorry for your loss. Very often we don't know why we miscarry, so I am heartened that the docs may have figured it out for you. I hope in another year or so you are on this journey again and have a happy and healthy pregnancy and baby.

iVillage is such a wonderful community. I CL'd the miscarriage board after I miscarried the second time, and it was a wonderful help: http://forums.ivillage.com/t5/Miscarriage-Pregnancy-Loss/ct-p/iv-pppregloss. Also, you may or may not be aware of the Military Families board --
