Introduction — The Bump
Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss


DH and I weren't trying for a baby and when we got pregnant we were shocked and excited! Well, I went in on Friday for just a routine visit and we tried to hear the heartbeat on dopler and the midwife heard no heartbeat. I then went in for an ultrasound later that day where they found a gestational sac but couldn't locate a heartbeat. They found the fetal pole and it measured about 7 weeks 6 days, I'm supposed to be close to 11. As the midwife immediately came over to the room with the ultrasound tech, I knew it was the end. The fetus passed and my body refused to recognize it. The fetal pole continued to shrink during the weekend and now only measures about 6 weeks 4 days. I'm a healthy 20 year old and can't help but wonder why. How could this happen to me? I know it's nothing I did but I can't help but feel guilty over all those days I felt like I didn't want to be pregnant because I was so miserable and all I wanted was it to be over and to be holding my child. Now those miserable days were for nothing.

I just want this fetus out of me. I feel awful for saying that but I want to feel "normal" again and I can't do that while my baby lies quiet inside my womb. I'm opting for a D&C since I can't take the waiting any longer. I hope to find strength from the women on this board who have been through this and who have felt what I am feeling.

  • I am so sorry for your loss.  You have come to the right place for support.  I understand what you mean about wanting the dead fetus out of you.  I was the same way and after my d&c I felt much better.  Although it has been a month and I am still healing I am still hopeful I will get my normal body back and able to try again soon.  I hope to same to you.  Good luck.

  • I am so sorry for your loss.  I also had a missed m/c and I had the same feeling about wanting the baby out.  I opted for a D&E the day I found out my baby had no heartbeat.  Don't feel bad that you are feeling that way.

    I hope we are able to offer you some support here.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. I felt the same way right after my loss as you do. I'm young, I'm healthy, I've never broken the law, I'm a good person. Why is this happening to me?? This is all compleatly "normal" to feel. It sucks that any of us have to be here, but the ladies here are wonderful and supportive. Just know that you're not alone and that we're here for you. ((hugs))
