I just found out on Friday that I lost my baby I was scheduled for an ultrasound to check my cervical length at 16 weeks... The sonographer said that we were going to take a peek at the baby for the baby's father who hadn't had the opportunity to see... well she turned the machine on, had an awful look on her face & I knew something was wrong. she went and go my OB & I was certain... The baby had stopped developing at 14 weeks 5 days. I couldn't believe it - I still don't. So what happens next, the OB had to schedule surgery to have my baby taken out - It just so happens that only two places in the state can perform the procedure necessary at the point in the pregnancy- abortion clinics. I nearly died... when I go, the lovely picketers begin to tell me how beautiful my baby would be if I kept it... How I wish I could have kept my baby... Since I began my second trimester, I thought everything was ok and was telling everyone - I was so excited that I would be having a baby after so long (my two kids are 14 & 11) and now I have to listen to people say how sorry they are... I know they mean well, but it brings everything back.
So sorry, I know what your are going thru. I found out I lost my baby at 15 weeks at a normal check up and I had brought my mother in law, thought it would be fun...
Anyway, I was to have a D&C but the meds they gave me put me in labor and I had him naturally at home, I don't know that I could handle going to a place like that. Plus it would give you some time with your baby if you wanted it...I'm glad that I got that time, it was more 'final'....
