Shock at the doctor today — The Bump
Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Shock at the doctor today

Hi, I'm Angela and I'm new here. Had my second u/s today at 9 weeks of my 1st pregnancy and found out the baby hadn't grown since the 1st u/s at 6 weeks. Strangely, no symptoms of miscarriage had started, in fact had several positive symptoms all along - morning sickness, bloating, breast changes. My doc said this was a good sign for the future along with us only having tried for 2 months to get pregnant. I'm having a D&C Monday or Tuesday so I can put it behind me. I've been finding comfort in talking to friends and relatives who have gone thru losses as well and am blown away by how common this is. I'm hoping to find some more comfort here. I keep reminding myself that my fiancée and I will get through this and have our family soon enough.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. I too had great ultrasounds up until 2 days before my loss at 10 weeks 5 days. It is such a cruel turn. I am really happy to hear that you have a supportive doctor and family and friends. You also have you wedding to look forward to!

    Pregnancy Ticker
  • Is investigating why the embryo didn't develop a road any of you took? My doc mentioned we could have testing done on the tissue after the D&C but she also said it wasn't necessary. This was my 1st pregnancy and 1st miscarriage and I had genetic testing done last year with an all clear. I feel like if we were to test, it would just make it harder and I would feel more at fault. Advice?

  • I too had a miscarriage and it was a blighted ovum which was silent and I still had pregnancy symptoms. This was about four weeks ago and I am now feeling confident in trying again. I have a d&c this week because my body couldn't pass it. I'm so sorry for your loss. Private message me if you have questions on blighted ovens. Hugs!!!!!!
