Thank you for sharing. I have read so many stories now, and sometimes they make me feel better and sometimes they makes me feel more sad and desperate - there are so many women who have gone through this, it seems that more women miscarry than have successful pregnancies.
I've read a few articles and short books about this. I'm feeling a little lost in all of it, I don't quite fit into the 'early pregnancy' category where so many women saw the beginnings of a pregnancy but didn't get to see it advance to a heartbeat or beyond. And I don't fit into the category where so many women could already feel the baby.
I'm somewhere in the middle. We saw the baby's heartbeat. Saw the baby moving and wiggling. Saw a head, the spine, the buds of arms and legs. Then a few weeks later, the baby LOOKED like a baby - fully formed, arms and legs. But it was not moving. There was no heartbeat. DH said "He's sleeping". I will never lose that image in my mind, seeing the baby lying so still.
Thanks for letting me talk about it.
Mommy to the most wonderful boy, 7 yrs old.
