I had my 2nd u/s at the RE's today at 8w4d. He couldn't find a heartbeat and based on the measurements said it probably stopped beating at 8w 0d. I've been on progesterone supplements so they said that's probably why I haven't passed anything yet. I'm to go off the supplements and if nothing happens within a week I should call and there's a pill they'll give me in the office and if that doesn't help then a d&c.
I think I was in too much shock to ask any questions. I know I can call, but if you guys have a FAQ section you can point me to or can just answer some questions, well, I'd appreciate it.
Is there anything I need to watch out for as far as what's "normal" and what I need to go to the dr. for? Do I need to go back in when it's done to get checked out?
What do I do with the baby? I realize at this point it is only the size of a raspberry - will I even know if I've passed it?
Do I go to work or stay home? No one knows we were expecting. I'm not close with my boss but know he'd be understanding if I told him - but if I'm out people are going to wonder what's up. I have no idea how this works - if it happens fast, if it's days...ugh.
I'll be scrolling through to read other responses but wanted to put this out there if anyone has time for feedback. TIA
