So I went in last week 11/24 and had an ultrasound, Being that they calculated me being 7weeks 5days, when they baby measured 6weeks 2days.. I felt like something was wrong. The ultrasound tech couldn't find the heartbeat, so she had me talk to the doctor. She told me that I would probably start miscarrying, but we would do a follow up ultrasound on 11/30. Well we did the ultrasound and yet again they had calculated me being 8weeks 4days, and when they measured the baby, it was 5weeks 6days. :smileysad: So it was measuring smaller and yet again they couldn't find the heartbeat. When the doctor followed up with me after the ultrasound, she gave me the option of waiting and see if it would start naturally. But with the baby being almost 3 weeks smaller than it should have been and there not being a heartbeat, I have opted to have a D&C. :smileysad: I just hate the idea of waiting to see if the natural process would start, and knowing that the baby won't progress. My heart is really broken. This is my second pregnancy loss in 6 months, and I can say that its the worst 6 months I've had. My first pregnancy loss was discovered when I was 11weeks pregnant in July, when I had my first drs appt and ultrasound and the pregnancy wasn't in my uterus... it was in my left tube. I ended up having emergency surgery and losing 3 things that day. I lost the pregnancy, my left tube and my left ovary. So after all of this, I'm really heartbroken and thankful for my family, especially my husband and 23month old son.
