Danni my first pregnancy - April 15

OMG! thats terrible news! I misscarried at 10 weeks! And the only thing I can say to try and help is, IF YOU MISCARRY, IT'S BEST FOR THE BABY AND FOR YOU! I know it sounds stupid because it hurts like hell if you miscarry, but if you don't and your baby isn't growing properly then you'll have a very complicated pregnancy and an unhealthy baby! I'm sorry for what your going through! And I know you'll probably hear it a million times, but just try to remind yourself it's for the best! Eventually you will believe it! I did!

This is so strange. Have you ever heard of this befor happening. I try to find things about it but cant find anything. I go back to the doctor on Thursday and if my hormone levels did not go up and the baby did not grow and we still cant hear the heart beat then we will probal go through with DNC. I am Scarde. I have had one done before but I was not pregnat this time I am and so scarde.

I'm so sorry you have to go through this:( I've had 2 miscarriages, one back in Aug. with a blighted ovum, then the second this past Dec. they said it was a chemical pg. The first I had a d&c the second went naturally. All I can say is I'm sorry that this is happening to you, but also know that it's not common to repeat m/c so it will happen for you even if this time is doesn't. I know that doesn't make it any better though. I used to get so upset when I saw people who "accidentally" got pg, I used to think why them and not me?!? Well it finally did happen for me and I'm now 19 weeks. I still get nervous, but I think going through what I went through has made me appreciate every part of this pg even more. Good Luck to you, please let us know what happens. God Bless!

I've also experienced the same thing at 8 weeks the baby measured only 7 weeks and the heartbeat was gone where I had seen it at 6weeks. It was very hard, but I'm sure there was a reason for it. It's hard not knowing why. Hang in there, it is very common I've discovered.
