My appointment didn't go well. I don't even know where to begin. I am so deflated and so sad. I just knew that all that bleeding couldn't be a good sign. I passed a silver dollar sized clot when I got to the hospital. I was so scared and actually thought I had just miscarried my baby. After that, I pretty much knew it was over. I was so worked up that my blood pressure was through the roof. The ultrasound showed an empty yolk sac instead of an 11 week old fetus. They technically referred to it as a blighted ovum. I guess something must have been wrong with the chromosomes, so that the egg was fertilized, but a baby never developed. What a cruel joke to have all the signs of pregnancy for nearly three months, but never have a baby growing inside of you. I just don't know how to pick myself up after this. I want to lie around and cry all day, but I know that does me no good. I guess I need to thank God I have my son to take care of focus my energy on. He's such a light in my life and knows just when to give hugs, kisses and snuggles. I will wait things out and hope that I pass all the tissue on my own and that I don't need a D&C. I'm still bleeding today, so that's a "good sign". We will certainly try again and hope and pray for the best. I guess one way to look at it, is that it is better to know that our little one never had a chance at life and never developed into a fetus. As crushed as I am and although we have already grown so attached to the "baby" inside of me, I can imagine if I was miscarrying an 11-wk old fetus, it would be much more devastating. Thank you for all your support and words of encouragement. I had begun to make this DDC my home and I will miss you. I hope you all have a happy and healthy pregnancy, and may there be no more losses for any of you!

I am so sorry for your loss. Your positivity is inspiring. When I had a loss similar to you, my children were the light to keep me moving forward. I pray that you find peace and look forward to seeing you around very soon. Good luck to you.
I am so very sorry to hear this. It isn't fair ... And no words will help right now but everything does happen for a reason, even if its too difficult to see or understand that reason right now. Sending tons of prayers your way as you grieve.
Thank you so very much ladies. Your kind words of hope and sympathy mean so much to me. I think yesterday I was still in a bit of shock, but today I am having a much more difficult time processing what happened. I'm feeling like my body has failed me. I got word last night that our good friends are due with their second baby in April. Although I'm very excited for them, it's so sad to think of what we've lost, and that our baby was due the same month as theirs. My son is a good distraction. If only I could tote him around with me all day at work, I'd never shed a tear. Again, thank you so much for your support. I hope and pray that the remainder of your pregnancies are healthy.
