Hello to all. I'm new to the site so just intro today. I've dealt w/ PCOS since 2006 after ttc for over a year w/ no luck on our own. Metformin for 6 months brought us our amazing son. So a few years later ttc # 2 ended in a MC @ 5 wks, which was upsetting but considering we had only discovered our pregnancy one day prior made it a little easier to deal with. Fast forward a few months and after clomid, prometrium, and metformin for 3 months brought us our next pregnancy which was going really well. Positive U/S at 8.5 weeks, heart rate was 168, nausea, indigestion, the whole nine yards. Feeling comfortable w/ the u/s we made our pregnancy public at 9 wks. We even had a nickname that my son made up out of no-where! All of our friends and family were estatic since we had been ttc for well over a year.
Last Tuesday at work, I started spotting slightly. Nothing to be too worried about b/c it was such a small amt. But since I'm a nurse at our local hospital, decided to get our doppler out and see if we could find a heartbeat. After trying for abt 20 minutes w/ out success, I still wasn't too worried b/c it's still kind of early to hear the heartbeat. Went in to the Dr. the next day and he couldn't find it w/ doppler either. U/S confirmed no heartbeat :(
I felt like my entire world ended. D&C on Thursday left me empty. Hurt. Heartbroken.
