So after an ER visit yesterday and an OB visit today it was confirmed that the baby did not have a heartbeat. Apparently, I was measuring at 15 weeks and the baby was exactly 15 weeks into development, and the OB said it was just some sort of "freak accident" and "very rare" and "likely a chromosome problem".
Because I'm 15 weeks I have to go in and deliver the baby instead of the other procedure (since the other would have higher risks for me). I know it'll be hard and I've made peace with that part, but I'm wondering what were some of the options those of you who've been through it had for the baby?
I just want to know what happens to the baby after, and if its possible for me to donate the baby to science or something -- because honestly, that's what we did with my brother and that's what I plan to do for myself, but I also want to know of any other options out there too.
Also, how long after the procedure will I be down and out? Will I have to take it easy for a few days, weeks, etc. or will I be okay to basically go back to being full-time mom and not worry about stressing my body out?
