My Unhappy Ending


Well, February was over before it started and so was pregnancy # 2!

Here is the rundown:

Monday, February 11: BFP!

Wednesday, February 13 : Beta #1 1900ish

Friday, February 15: Beta #2 5000

Saturday, February 16: Red-brown and brown blood spotting (Pretty much knew it was over)

Tuesday, February 19: More blood, ultrasound revealed large, irregularly shaped mass and a possible gestational sac; doctor suspects molar pregnancy; wait

Thursday, February 21: HCG levels normal and increasing, ultrasound revealed larger, but abnormally-shaped  gestational sac with possible fetal pole; doctor suspects mass is a very large blood clot and not a molar pregnancy; wait

Thursday, February 28:  HCG levels still normal and increasing but gestational sac shows no growth from previous week; wait

Monday, March 4: Despite rising HCG levels, ultrasound shows no additional gestational sac growth;  OFFICIALLY OVER; D & C scheduled

Tuesday, March 5: D & C performed.

The blood clot could have stopped the embryo from growing or it could have been another chromosomal abnormality.  I guess we’ll find out soon.

Like I said, all of these events took place within a few, short weeks but those days have consisted of sleepless nights, missed work, trips back and forth to the doctor, hopelessness, and terror.  Maybe I have no idea what pregnancy and expectancy are supposed to feel like, but I know for certain that it’s not supposed to feel like this.

I honestly do not go looking for trouble, but why does it always find me?

Right now, I’m just trying to survive physically and emotionally.  This D & C has been a lot harder on me than the previous one.  I fear the sight of blood and clotting.  I try to stay medicated just to stay sane.

Maybe my body is getting stronger, but my spirit is getting weaker.  I really have no words to describe how I feel emotionally:  numb?  scared?  broken?  I just don’t know.

I don’t think I miss this second baby (and I hate to say that) because I never got the chance to get attached.  Once I saw the blood that Saturday, I just figured it was all downhill from there.  I didn’t really get a clear picture on the ultrasound and the baby never had a heartbeat.  I guess I’m lucky that way–not seeing or knowing the baby.  Maybe it won’t hurt as much.

But it’s all a lie because I still miss my first baby.  Now more than ever.

  1. I’m so sorry! I know words probably don’t help much but please know you are in my thoughts. Sending you many hugs


  2. I am so so sorry. *hugs* . Miscarriage is like a knife to the soul and nothing helps the pain. Do whatever it takes to survive these harsh days. Take care.


  3. Oh, honeybun, my heart just breaks for you. I think you are very strong, lady.


  4. I have no words. I’m just wish this pain wasn’t presented to you – to have it, to feel the hope and for it to be taken away.

    I know nothing I write will soothe you right now but I want you to know that I’m sending you lots of love. That I’m thinking of you and that I hope your miracle really does come soon.

    Rest up – ignore the world for a bit and heal. x
