A Sad Day

It is with a very heavy heart that I have to let you know that I have miscarried.

I went in for a routine checkup, but she couldn't find a heartbeat with the doppler. Because I have an interior placenta, she figured that was the reason, but had to send me to my delivery doctor for an u/s anyways...

In a way that only mother's can feel, I already KNEW what was going to be discovered...as soon as that little peanut came on the screen, i could tell there was no heartbeat and turned away...

My doctor was speechless and can't figure out what happened. I have no history of problems, we had a great u/s 2 weeks ago. He determined based on the baby's size that it died within a mere 10 days. The doctor thinks it could have been anything from anemia, to a knotted cord (seth had that), to an infection or ??? He thinks it might even be related to my RH factor. He wonders if they should have given me one more shot...I am going to be having a lot of tests done and will be in the hospital for my D&C on Friday.

I'm super emotional as I've had an inner "intuition" that I was not going to carry this bean full term and to find out that my intuition was right...well, it's almost more then I can handle right now.

My husband works in Cincinnati Monday-Wednesday, but is going to be coming home tonight even if he has to go back in tomorrow. My mom is devasted and with my blessing is hopping a plane (from WA) and will be arriving tomorrow to help me through this upcoming week.

I know you all will be thinking and praying about me and my family. Those prayers are dearly needed and desired. I know that God will provide me with the strength I need to put one foot in front of the other and move forward...but I am just in a state of grieving right now and trying not to blame myself for "feeling" like I was going to lose the baby...

Seth is very perceptive and wouldn't rest until he knew why I was sad. After telling him "the doctor told mommy the baby died" he thought about it and then said (in a way only 3 year olds do) "well you and daddy will have to grow another one."

Thanks for being here for me...I probably won't be on very much until we get things worked out and I am ready to look outward. I am going to delay my blogoversary celebration until things are little more even keel around here.

I know this was all in God's plans and that He is here with me every step of the way.

Lisa, I am so sad to hear your news...I suffered through several miscarriages and I do understand how you feel...especially the part about knowing with Mother's Intutition before the Dr. could tell you. I'm glad your Mom is coming to be with you...my Mom did too one time and it was an enormous comfort. I will be thinking of you.
