Sorry ladies, I could not bring myself to the boards yesterday but I feel truly heart warmed that so many of you checked in yesterday All I can say is that sucked. Really really really sucked. We got there and the doctor saw me over an hour late so I sat in the waiting room on pins and needles with excitement.

Finally got back to see the doctor. . . No heartbeat, just a sac with some cells where the baby should have been. I saw it and I knew before she said anything but I just couldn't believe it. No cramping or spotting or any sort of signs at all just no baby. So all the nausea and symptoms and "great" beta numbers. . . well in my case didnt mean anything. I am really devastated and feeling beyond broken. I am having a D&C tomorrow (my only option as it could be molar) and results from the testing will come back 2 weeks from the D&C. My doc says if it is not molar we can go right back to trying. If it is molar we go back on cancer watch for at least 6 months and then discuss other options.

So DH and I went home and didnt go back to work. I cried all day and watched prettly little liars while DH and Thor sat patiently next to me. Today I am sipping coffee at my desk at work because I have too much to do and missing 2 days for surgery was not in the plans.

Just knowing I could come back here and talk to you ladies really means the world to me. I am starting to feel like we wont ever have a baby but I do know we will keep trying. Thank you ladies for all you do. This journey would be a whole lot lonelier and scarier with out you guys.

Elle, I saw your post in the main section and my heart just sunk. I am so very sorry for you and I can only imagine how scary and unsettling this is. I really hope that you get results in which you can start trying again soon....and that you get your sticky baby. You deserve it.

But for now, take care of yourself. If you need anything at all, we are ALL here for you! We all waited & had such high hopes for you yesterday- and we'll be here through the heartache as well. Thats the best part about this board is the support system it creates. BIG HUGS to you and DH. I hope he is taking things ok and there for you to lean on as well.

Hang in there sweetie.

Elle, I words can not describe how heartbroken I am for you. As soon as I read your update, I just cried. I'll be sending prayers all day today and tomorrow... and until you have your forever baby.

I'm so sorry Elle. One day you will have your forever baby. It may take 5 years and may not be the way that you expected, but it will come. We have to believe that. It's the only thing that gives me hope. If you want to talk, pm me or fb. I'll be praying for you.

Elle if I were nearer to you I'd bring over a carton of ice cream, a bottle of wine and the best dessert I could find.

I pray that you will have the strength and resilience to get through the next few weeks. You're way tougher than me already <3

Oh sweetie my heart is breaking for you. I read your post on the main board and the floodgates I'd been holding in since last night just broke open. This isn't fair... you paid your loss dues, you should have gotten a get out of hell free card for it. And now knowing you could go right back to square one if it was molar.. isn't right.

Will you go right back to trying? Is your doctor going to run any tests depending on the outcome of what pathology finds?

I feel like crud so I'm sticking close to home today. I'll be around if you need me.

Thank you so much for all of your support ladies. I really don't know what I would do with out yall!

Ashley - If it isn't molar we have decided to jump right back in (well probably wait until 1 AF. . . just to be safe but we didn't debate that part yet) The good news is my doctor was really really great. She wants to look at all my charts from the past year and discuss all of my options. I brought up the fact that I usually ovulate late and she is planning to look at all my charts and see if I should be on some meds to try and get me to ovulate sooner. We also started to talk about different kinds of testing available but she really wanted to wait and see the results of the D&C. If it is molar. . . well then we start over again and it will be at least 6 months and she is not sure she will suggest us trying naturally again. But she really didnt want to talk about that until we have the results.
