Hate to say goodbye

It looks like I'm done. I started bleeding yesterday morning and began cramping pretty bad. I had to tell my mom early and she was thrilled until I told her that I was bleeding. She took me to the ER where I got an ultrasound and the doctor said that my blood work showed I was between 5 & 7 weeks (I was almost 8 weeks by LMP & O date) but he wasn't seeing the developmental signs that a 7 week baby would show. I'm assuming he meant there was no heartbeat. I started cramping more later in the evening and passed some tissue. I'm sad because I really wanted this but it was out of my control. I'm so glad I was here with my mom through this because she miscarried her first, too, and I just really needed my mom. I'm going to call my midwives on Monday and maybe get in to see them on our way home just to confirm the miscarriage.
DH & I have decided to try to get down to Phoenix before the end of the year, find jobs with health insurance and start TTC ASAP. He's been really good through all of this. I think it made him realize that he wants kids and also how much I want them. It's brought us closer together and also alleviated my concerns about being able to get PG in the first place.
Thanks to you all for answering questions and giving good advice. I plan to lurk and keep up with you guys throughout your PGs.
