I wanted to introduce myself - - my name is Meg and I found out today that I have a blighted ovum and will be scheduled for a D&C for next week. I originally was diagnosed with it last Wednesday, but went back in today for a recheck to see if there was any change - which there wasn't. This is my first loss and I'm not sure how to feel right now. The past week has been very emotional and I pretty much prepared myself the best I could for this outcome today. Last week my Doctor told me that I would be miscarrying and so I've been waiting for that to happen - instead I still feel pregnant, I still get sick, I'm still exhausted. My numbers are still high so that is why I still have the pregnancy symptoms. Anyways, I just wanted to say hi and am glad that this board is here to help us all get through these traumatic, difficult times.

Let me be the first to sadly welcome you! I was part of the Dec. DDC too. This is my first loss too. I am currently still miscarrying and I just feel sad and a bit numb! This board is great and everyone is so supportive! I'm so sorry for your loss! It's something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

I am so sorry for your loss, I can relate a hundred times over. I had a blighted ovum over 10yrs ago that went all the way to 13wks. My body just did not want to let it go, and all of the blood work, repeat u/s's were just devistating. I eventually m/c at home, but hemoraged because the sac had gotten so big it ripped. I ended up with an emergency d&c.

This last lost was first diagnosed in the er as a blighted ovum as well, but ended up being a baby after all. We got to see the heartbeat and it was strong, and then two weeks later the baby passed away.

Let me say this, there is nothing that can prepare you for the loss of your baby. Even when the er dr told me to go home and prepare for m/c, I still prayed for a healthy baby. And when I got to see my little baby with a beautiful heart beat it made it that much harder to see it go two weeks later.

But I can tell you this, it DOES get better. The pain will soften a little and you WILL smile again. These women here are my rock and have helped me get through this ten times faster than I ever could of imagined. The more I typed away my feelings and responded to others, the more I healed. Iam so sorry for the loss of your lo, and hope your able to share with us your ups and downs, even if in the beginning its all the downs, we will be here for you.

Oh hun. I hate to write these posts. It just isn't fair but welcome. Take care of yourself and come here any time you need support or just a place to vent. My most reassuring moments during my m/c and D&C were when i came to JM and just vented my crazy feelings. So many women here were able to tell me I wasn't alone and that it would get better. They were right and we are all here when you need us.

I'm so sorry that you had to make your way here. Like it was previously said, it's so sad to welcome new members, but I'm glad you found us. It's never easy, no matter when it happens, and you never expect that news.

When you are ready, if you want to add your angel to the Angel Memorial List, just add your information to the sticky and I'll get you added.

again.

I am so sorry for your loss honey. Lori pretty much said it all. It is so hard and you will go through many different stages. I have leaned on this board and these beautiful girls here to help me through this.

We are here for you, there is nothing you can say that we don't understand because we feel it with you.

Again, I am so sorry.

Thank you all for the warm welcome!!! I can't wait for the D&C so that I can have some sort of closure and start to move on as best as I can. I am going to call my doctor tomorrow to see about what day they are able to schedule it. It is going to be a little weird because I work at the hospital that I'll be having it done at - so everyone knows me and I know them. I know that they had to order a special medication (laminaria) to help me dilate before they do the procedure.

I am actually going for a "spa Day" with one of my best friends tomorrow. We have had it planned for about 3 months (even before I got pregnant) and have gone back and forth over going or not, but my doctor said that I can go as long as I'm not cramping or bleeding. The spa package includes a massage, facial, manicure, pedicure and whirlpool - total pampering!!! I just hope that I am able to just relax and enjoy and put everything in the background for tomorrow.

Thanks again for being here for me!!

Awsome, enjoy your day, you deserve it hun! I went to see puppies about 3-4 days after my d&c, and it was wonderful to hold a little soft puppy, made me feel so good! Do whatever it takes to make the pain a little less, we deserve more days like this!
