Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss


About a month ago I found out I was pregnant with my second child.  I had my first appointment with my OB yesterday at 8.5 weeks.  Instead of finding a heartbeat, she sent me for a surprise ultrasound to confirm dating because I was measuring small.  At the ultrasound they found a sac but no embryo.  They couldn't confirm if the baby had stopped growing of if my dates were off.  I knew my dates weren't off but I held out hope when they said they wanted to see me for a second ultrasound in two weeks.  Well today I started with painful cramps and bleeding.  I can't believe this is happening.  We were so excited.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. We lost our first baby just a week and a half ago, nothing can ever prepare you for the pain the experience brings. I have found in this short time that this board is a great resource and the women here are extremely strong and helpful. I am sorry you find yourself on this board but I hope we can all help you through this.

  • Thanks everyone.  I am sorry we're all here as well but I can feel the support already =).  I think the miscarriage is actually over already; I passed everything last night within a few hours.  So at least there were no further complications with that or a need for a D&C.  OB wants me to call in again this morning to follow up and hopefully we'll be cleared to try again fairly soon if / when we're feeling up to it.

    I'm home resting and my daughter went to daycare today.  Just taking some time for myself.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm glad you are taking time for yourself.
  • I'm so sorry. This is very similar to what happened with me. It's awful. Especially being convinced that your dates were off. 
  • I also miscarried at 8 weeks.  The baby had only grown about 1.5 mm from week 6 to 7 and then no heartbeat at 8 weeks.  It was heartbreaking.  I'm so sorry for you.  Hang in there.
