My name is Christen. DH and I have a beautiful 6 year old daughter named Avery and suffered a missed m/c 2 weeks ago. It was discovered at my 12 week genetic screen during u/s. There was no hearbeat and baby only measured 11 weeks. It was heartbreaking. We saw the heartbeat at 6weeks and 9 weeks 4 days so it was SUCH a horrible shock. I had a D&C on New Years Eve.
My doctor said we were good to go to try again after the first cycle. I am still bleeding a little so now we are just in waiting mode. It was so hard to get rid of the baby/maternity things. I was 11 weeks 4 days at Christmas so we went ahead and told everyone. There were presents under the tree for baby and I bought a bunch of maternity clothes at all of the Christmas sales. The baby things have been stored away safely but I returned the maternity clothes. Whether we are lucky enough to need them soon, I just could not look at them and not think of this loss.
So I was on the way home from work yesterday bawling my eyes out. I am doing pretty well all things considered but I just needed a good cry. Hubby bought me (and Avery lol) the new Pink CD for Christmas and as I am in full cry-mode in the car, this song comes on and it was like she was singing my song. It's called Beam Me Up. The lyrics and song are on YouTube. I was so grateful to have heard it, it was just what I needed. Grab your tissues, though, if you are on this board I imagine you will relate to it.
I am looking forward to the next chapter in our lives and to having a much better 2013.
Hi how are you? I'm so sorry to hear of your loss Thats so hard especially after just announcing to family. This board has a great group of ladies that are super supportive, if you feel the need to talk. I listened to that pink song, it definitely strikes a chord straight to the heart. I hope that with this new year, you are able to get through the trying times, and are blessed with your rainbow baby soon.
I also was pregnant during Christmas and received nothing but maternity clothes! 3 days after Christmas is when they discovered I was having a m/c. My parents felt so bad that they gave me a laptop for my Christmas present and let me keep the clothes to put away for later. Still hard to see them in my drawer though...
