I had my first miscarriage the day after Mother's Day. I went for my first appointment 4/28, which would have been 7 weeks and 5 days. The ultrasound had me a couple of weeks behind and betas werent all that spectacular. I knew there was something wrong. I spent an anxious 2 weeks holding on to hope that things would be different. I spent a quiet Mother's Day avoiding conversation as my growing belly and empty heart had me confuse. A follow up was scheduled for 2 1/2 weeks after my first ultrasound. Mother's Day I felt a little wonky. I left brunch feeling cramps with light spotting. I called the doctor who brought me in the next morning. Monday, my miscarriage was confirmed that my baby had stopped developing around 7 weeks and at 10 1/2 weeks I had a confirmed missed miscarriage. My doctor scheduled d & c for the next day, however I started passing tissue and mucous that Monday evening. We still did the d&c to finish clearing up everything and now I'm just confused. I've gone from seeing a RE for infertility issues, to becoming pregnant naturally, to losing a baby all in 3 months. I don't even know where to put the pieces back together.

Hugs my dear, it is a total punch in the gut, the good thing though is that you know you can get pregnant.

Many years ago I had a miscarriage but my body never got rid of the pregnancy. My baby had stopped growing as well. This past Mother's Day I was at home recovering from a total abdominal hysterectomy. I had 23 staples in my abdomen with no chance of ever having my own child. As hard as this is, you do know you can get pregnant. Don't push down your feelings, ups and downs emotionally are normal. I pray that you find some kind of peace. I've been where you are at, I can say eventually it gets easier. Keep reaching out. Thank you for sharing
