As we predicted

No heartbeat at u/s today and no real growth since last week.

So after two ultrasounds (the latter a high res one to confirm), a d&c, lots of blood loss, serious vomiting and nausea and gut wrenching cramping followed by 4 Advil and a nap, I'm ready to call it a day.  

I'm still dizzy but mostly feel ok now.  Dr said the clot was enormous and had my uterus all distended which accounts for the extra special cramping, so I'm glad I didn't choose to do this one on my own

But thank you all for rooting for us. It was so helpful and inspiring. I'm going to retreat and lick my wounds a bit, try to lose 10 lbs and get into some physical shape before I decide what's next.

  1. I'm so sorry.

    And so glad it's over. The physical part, anyway.

    Thinking of you lots.

  2. I'm so very sorry to read this. I had been hoping for you.

    Somehow, the false hope, the limbo, the fact that any form of resolution is weeks in the coming...it all makes a horrible thing worse.

    I'm sorrier than I can say.

  4. I'm so incredibly sorry. I was hoping so hard. And this sounds like pretty much the worst day EVER. But I am glad that you got to go straight from diagnosis to treatment, and didn't have to wait several days to complete the d&c. Glad that things weren't drawn out at the very end, as they were leading up to this. Not that that's a hell of a lot to be grateful for. Shit.

  5. This is hard. Like Adele said, the limbo, the delay, the hope, all things that are combined for one awful experience. I'm sorry tat you are going through this. Losing this much wanted pregnancy after a heartbeat is cruel and more than heartbreaking.

  8. Glad it's over but so very very sorry you had to endure limbo land-- I think it's one of the unrecognized circles of hell. Figures Dante was a man.
