There was no heartbeat on sono...
I went to the doc today b/c I called due to still bleeding and excessive fatigue. I went and had the sono and there was no heartbeat and the baby was still measuring 6wks. I went and saw the doc and we scheduled the D&C. Then as I was checking out I m/c the baby. All I could do was stand and stare at it when I went to the rr. Gross I know but I passed it while checking out.

I am So sad to loose the baby-again, but part of me is relieved this emotional journey is over. Obviously there was something wrong with the baby and God had other plans.

Thanks so much for all of your support and kind words. It has helped get me through such a tough time in my life. I am off to take some meds and go to bed where I can hopefully sleep. I have hugged my baby's extra tight tonight!

He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(

Picture: This is what happens when you raise a kid on health food and they get ahold of a Coke! Bad mom, that soda is NOT on the reflux diet.
UPDATE: Isaiah is now 12 and off meds! He is doing great, eating again and hopefully will be catching up in the growing department. I am still in the "hoping it sticks" phase, but we're so happy that he's better!
I'm so sorry. (((hugs))) to you, I will be praying for you and your family, what a hard thing to have this be so up and down! Please know that you are loved and our thoughts are with you.

He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear this. I was rooting for the little bugger. You have a good attitude; there was a reason the baby couldn't survive. You did all you could. You must be relieved that there is some closure though. Is hubby still having the snip?
