My husband and I found out on August 2 that we were expecting. We're in our 40s and this was a complete surprise, but we were thrilled! Within the last week, I started spotting and it got progressively worse. I called my doctor this morning and he sent me in right away for a sonogram and blood work. I should be at least ten weeks, but the sonogram measured me at six weeks with no heartbeat. I'm still waiting on the blood work results. I'm sad, but not devastated. My husband and I have seven kids between us and I am very grateful for that. Life will go on and we'll get through this together.
Thank you so much. I cried off and on most of the day, but feel more reconciled this evening. My husband and I are here alone and I've been bleeding and cramping very heavily. I think the worst is over now. I was scheduled to see a maternal fetal specialist on Thursday anyway (because of my age...41) and my regular doctor still wants me to go see him for confirmation of what's going on. I don't need confirmation; I know. But, I'll still keep the appointment. Tomorrow, I'm going to hug all of my children (and two grandchildren!) and tell them I love them.
