Well...

It's what we expected.

Actually, to be honest, because I'm still having so many pregnancy signs, I thought the embryo would still have a heartbeat. But it didn't.

We're ok. Honestly and truthfully, we're fine. I feel very lucky because my doctor has hospital duty tomorrow, so we're scheduled for a D&C tomorrow morning. It even works out well timing wise that we can take Conor to school, go to the hospital and then come home before Conor is ready to leave.

I'm glad I had a week to prepare for this. My original appointment after the beta tests would have been Monday. Can I just say, that would have sucked? Especially since I still feel pregnant, it would have really sucked.

So, thanks for checking in. There's a 20% chance of rain today and the sun is brightly shining.

It's not good news, but it's not unexpected.

I am so, so, so sorry. Even if you are prepared, you are never prepared.

sigh.....deeper sigh......*#@$%

(my one size fits all response to most things is to get pissed off.....sorry.)

are they going to check DNA or anything like that? as in, see if there was a genetic reason for this? and maybe for previous ones as well?

Still sad -- very sad, indeed. But glad to hear you're coping. Preparation is a plus. Less of a shock, and more just a confirmation of what you already knew in your heart. Best of luck during the procedure tomorrow, Anita. My thoughts will be with you.

I asked my husband the other day what was wrong with me, or him, or whatever...What's wrong? Are we chromosomally f'd up? He replied, "It's the same thing that made our two beautiful children. Nature." It looks like nature treated you right with little Connor too. I'm sorry for your loss. I know it is hard. I'll learn my fate on Tuesday. I think I'm on your boat.
I told my kids that sometimes God takes babies back. Emily said that she wanted God to leave the baby with us. I said that perhaps God thought we needed an angel to watch over us, our own personal angel. Maybe.

I'm so sorry, Anita. I haven't had the opportunity to check your blog since you announced you were pregnant, and I was very sorry to read this. It's not fair! I wish you the best.

Hi Anita, I wish I was one of those people who easily offer wise or comforting words when they're most needed. Instead I'll just say that I'm hurting for you.
Hugs to you.
