Intro and tw — The Bump
TTC After a Loss

Intro and tw

hello, not for sure im in the right place but after reading through many posts you girls seem like a wonderful group. I’m 32, have a 4yo daughter and am going through my second miscarriage. 1st was around 5 weeks and happened naturally a couple months before conceiving DD. When pregnant with my daughter I enjoyed the D13 group :)

I was seen on monday for my 8 week viability scan and educational apt. Ultrasound seemed normal becides for the tech mentioning something about being small, pointed out the heartbeat and we were on our way. When we met with the NP she informed us that I was measuring 6w1d and the heartrate was at 50, then prepped me for miscarriage. 

I was completely blindsided as I felt so optimistic and that things were good. In hind site I am upset that I set myself up for disappointment, knowing better. Follow up U/S on thursday confirmed no heartbeat. I opted for a d&c as my first loss was super traumatic (which I'm sure I don't need to tell anyone here that). 

If you made it through this longer than expected post, thank you. I think we will be having some testing done since I feel like an autoimmune issue or possibly diabetic issues could be a factor. Im hoping to get some answers since we would like to continue ttc once my body is back to normal.
