I'm in shock right now... and very emotional. I had my 12 week U/S yesterday and when they brought up the baby, the technician was like oh my the baby is much younger than you think... I knew immediately something was wrong when there was no movement at all.
The baby stopped growing at 10 weeks.. apparently right after I heard the heartbeat. I have accepted the loss and I know I will be okay... I believe everything happens for a reason. I'm just in a lot pain right now emotionally.
Thankfully I was able to get a D&C yesterday to remove the baby. It was an exhausting experience since I got there at 11am, and didn't have the procedure until 4. I had a half a cup of a caramel latte at 9am, so becuase of that they wanted to wait 6 hours.
Now I just sit here in shock, wondering when the pain will subside. The Dr was encouraging by telling me that since I already have 1 very healthy son, the chance of another misscarriage is 5%.
Of course we want to start right away... my midwife is out of the country at the moment, so I don't even know when the suggested time wait is. I've heard people start right away, I hear people are asked to wait 3 months. I can't imagine having to 'wait' to start trying for that long. Thoughts?
