This is my first pregnancy, and just discovered through my second scan yesterday that my baby no longer has a heartbeat. It did not grow past my first scan, which was measuring a little over 6 weeks (where it had a heartbeat of 111).
My OBGYN office is closed on Friday afternoons, so I find myself trying to cope with this for the weekend. I will be seeing them Monday afternoon for what was meant to be a routine follow up.
I know which options are likely to be presented to me. I think I will opt for the pill to induce MC as the D&C will not be affordable - around $3k after insurance covers their part.
There is immense fear as I have never experienced this before, and reading many traumatic stories leaves me petrified.
I moved to the states from the U.K. when I married my DH, and I have no immediate family to physically be here to help me through it all... I just feel really alone.
