You're right, it's absolutely not fair. All that effort ttc to finally get pregnant and then this. It's my fear too. You do not have to be positive.

I am so very sorry to hear this. I unfortunately know exactly how you feel. I had a D&C a week ago today when we didn't find the heartbeat in either of the babies...it's horrible and I to am lost and empty. Hang in there, it does get a little better each day. (((hugs)))

The doctor gave me a prescription for medication that will make me expel the fetus. I called my regular OB and the earliest he can do a D&C is tuesday. I do not like the idea of waiting around and carrying a a dead fetus. All i can do is pick myself up, and keep moving forward.

Oh, my, I am so sorry to hear this! Each time we have to let go again, the disappointments grow bigger. It is good to have a good support system.

Has your doctor given you the option for a D&E? They had me wait for 2 weeks last time, but nothing happend, so I needed the procedure, and I was glad I did.

Thinking of you!

I am so sorry to hear that the doctor didn't find a heart beat. It has to very hard for you since you have done so much in order to carry this child. I understand why you would lose faith in everything. Just know that I will be thinking of you and you are in my prayers. *HUGS* Shannon

Well ladies,

My worst fear came true. today, was my first ultrasound at 8.5 weeks, and the doctor did not see a heart beat. I am devastated, angry, and just tired. I am tired of the disappointments, of the trials and tribulations. I am tired. I am sick of hearing about GOD, and I do not want to remain positive. I have been strong and now I have nothing to give. I feel so lost and upset. Enough is enough. Thank good ness for my friends and family who always support me. Now, I have to wait to expel the fetus. Its just not fair.
