Well.

There's really no easy way to say this. I've had a miscarriage :( I'm heartbroken & devastated but really leaning on God. In fact, I asked him yesterday to carry me for a while.

I ended up in the ER on Sunday afternoon after a gush of blood (sorry for the TMI) & after a very long hour in ultrasound was later told that the baby stopped growing around 8 weeks which was when I experienced the "old blood" discharge. I had a D&C yesterday (at what would've been 10 weeks) & am just resting at home now.

My heart hurts but I can understand that this was not our baby to keep. We got pregnant so fast (after one cycle) so we are encouraged that it'll happen again when we are given the okay. Not to mention the science that shows you are more fertile in the 6 months following a miscarriage. There is also an encouraging study about the very high rate of successful pregnancies that occur after a first pregnancy miscarriage.

So we are hopeful, keeping faith & turning to God A LOT! Prayers would be GREATLY appreciated!

Sorry to hear about your loss. This happened to me at 9wks but when I had an u/s at 8wks they told me I would probably miscarry because the yolk sac was too small, so I was kind of prepared. Of course it was still very hard when it happened. The doc said to wait 2 cycles to try again but we couldn't wait and have one cycle had unprotected sex and got pregnant. It took over a year the first time to get pregnant. I have the most wonderful daughter now who turned 7 recently. You will get your baby when the time is right!
