Well, this was my first pregnancy. We found out on Friday Jan. 5th that we were expecting after trying for about 4 months. I went out of state at the beginning of last week to visit my grandfather who is terminally ill. DH stayed home b/c of work. Wednesday I started to spot, and did research calming my nerves that it could just be spotting. Bleeding got worse, but I didn't have any cramps. I had my mom take me to the hospital where they did blood tests and a physical test. My uterus was open when they did the test. Blood test came back with an HCG level of 8! So, I knew right then that there was pretty much no hope. The hardest thing I have ever had to do was call my husband at midnight and tell him that I was micarrying our child. I flew home on Thursday, and went to the dr the following day. Dr. told me that we would just let it happen natural and that if I didn't stop bleeding in a week to come back. I did stop bleeding on Sunday so no D&C. I almost wish that they would have done one though b/c everytime I went to the bathroom and saw the blood was just a horrible reminder that I was no longer carrying a baby.
So, about a week later here I am. Telling myself that this was God's plan and that makes me feel better. I know that there is nothing that I could have done.
Now it's just waiting for my cycle to get back to normal so we can start trying again. And just praying that this doesn't happen again.
