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.
