Despite my hcg levels tripling then almost quadrupling, there was an abrupt slow down and at 6w2d a blighted ovum was diagnosed: empty sac. 4 days later I went in for a follow up u/s yet now there is a yolk sac (which measured too large - over 6mm), a heart rate of only 74, and a measurement that is over a week behind where I should be.

My OB won't do anything but wait at this point which kind of ticks me off. There is no way this pregnancy is going to continue...no way. I want to be done, I want to move on. She is not needing sleeping pills just to get a break from the dreams/sleeplessness at night. She is not sitting on her couch staring at the walls or floor because it feels like nothing else can be done.

I hate this. I was ready to move on, darn it!! I'd grieved, accepted, been angry, and now was resigned. Then today's u/s blew my world apart again. I don't want to stinking wait for what could be weeks on end before this is over with.

Not sure what I'm looking for here. I'm tired and sad and just.so.done with this. Why delay a D&C when there is no chance this will keep going?
One-time "I'm NEVER having kids!" woman to mama of 11. Love living the beautiful life I thought I never wanted. ♥

Also missing 11 precious little ones here with us but for a moment.

VERY cautiously expecting after two losses early 2013. Hoping and praying my Valentine's Day due date baby sticks this time.
