If you have any thoughts, hope, whatever, please let me know...



"I feel like I've been sucker punched and all the air has been knocked out of me. I had let my guard down because everything seemed to be going in the right direction. I still feel in shock.

I chatted with the nurses about whether or not I planned on finding out what I was having. I had my blood drawn, bp measured and weight checked. Then they sent me to the waiting room until an u/s room became available.

I remember giggling with dh about how excited I was to see the baby again and to actually see a nice strong hb this time. I had tried so hard to see the hb from the precarious position I was in last time (with such a small screen and bad resolution). But I was reassured because dh and the nurse both thought they saw slight movement, the beginnings of the hb, last time. I wasn't nervous at all...just excited, as the nurse called us back.

The first nurse tried and couldn't even get the gestational sac in the middle of her screen. She said she hated this machine and asked for the other nurse to help. The other nurse came in and right away found the gestational sac, but could not see a hb. I saw on dh's face that something was wrong (I couldn't see the screen). Dh muttered that it only looked like a blob, no definition and no movement. She turned the screen and I asked if the "blob" was the baby (it looked quite a bit bigger to me than last week). She said she didn't know and she was going to get the doctor.

When he came in, they tried looking again. The he said he wanted to send me to the hospital for an u/s and if necessary a dnc. He wanted to check the remains if it was not a blighted ovum, for chromosomal abnormalities! What? A blighted ovum? We saw the baby clearly last week. I asked if the gestational sac had grown any and the nurse said that it definitely had.

They gave me a slip for the hospital, ordering another u/s. On it it said that they were ruling out a "fetal demise vs. a blighted ovum". But they tried to tell me to remain hopeful.

It seemed like forever at the hospital, even though my paperwork said STAT. The technician informed us from the get go that she could not share any information with us. We could not see any pictures, she could not say a word. Technically dh could not even look over her shoulder at the screen, but he did. She said the doctor had the slip as a call and hold. I had to stay at the hospital while they called him with the results and then he'd decide what to do (whether or not to do the dnc...is my understanding from his office).

Dh got to see the baby. He said you could make out the little head and everything. He said the resolution was much better. The technician appeared to be trying to get a heartbeat reading, but there was no flicker. We (dh and I) cried together while waiting for the doctor's phone call in the u/s room.

It came about 45 minutes later. The nurse from my RE's office said that the baby measured 6 wks and 1 day and that they wanted me to come in for a repeat u/s on Monday.

I asked how it could be that when the baby supposedly measured that on their machine last week and the gestational sac and "white blob, aka my baby" looked bigger today than last week on their u/s machine. She just asked if I could have my dates off.

This is all too familiar. The only difference this time between my last m/c with Teddy is that this baby has been developing, whereas Teddy never really did (just a partially started fetal pole), but the gestational sac, yolk sac and placenta did.

I'm clinging to the last shred of hope, but it just seems so impossible. My appointment is at 9:45 am on Monday. Thanks for reading and your continued prayers.

Love,
Dawn"
