I'm sorry about the both of you. It just seems like you can't exhale until you hold your healthy baby in your arms. I hope you and your partners recover well. As always, we will be here...a click away.

I am so sorry to hear this. I know so very much how you feel. I am amidst a similar situation. Has your doctor given you options as of how you want to proceed? Wait and let it pass on your own, take some meds to help the bleeding along, D&C?

My US at 8+2 weeks showed an empty sack. I was sent home to wait to start bleeding on my own, which I did not. I had a follow-up on Tuesday (at 10+3). Not much has changed, gestational sac was deformed, but has not grown. Still no baby, nor heartbeat.The US was performed abdominal and vaginally,as I have a tilted uterus, which can make it more difficult to detect the embryo in the early stages of pregnancy. Even thought this two week wait seemed forever, but now I know that there is no baby. I am scheduled for a D&E on Friday.

Sending you hugs.

I think we who have experienced the ultimate loss should never have to experience another loss or disappointment ever again... but unfortunately things aren't fair and don't always work out that way. I'm so this pregnancy didn't progress.
