Hello ladies, thought I'd share my story in case anyone had something similar happen to them. I found out that I was pregnant at the end of September after the second month of trying. I was so excited because it didn't take long for us to conceive. I had my first Dr.s appointment at 6 weeks which was just a general appointment. I then had my second appointment at what was supposed to be 8 weeks. During the ultrasound, the baby only measured at 5 weeks 6 days, the doctor came in and told me that my lmp wasn't adding up to the size of the baby and to come back in 2 weeks to have another ultrasound. I asked if there were something wrong and she said she couldn't tell at the time and that they heard a heartbeat but couldn't tell if it were mine or the baby's. I was worried at first then I thought if God wants me to have this baby then everything will be fine. I tried to prepare myself in case there was something wrong but its hard to do that for something you want so badly. When I went back to the doctor, I was told that the baby stopped growing and measured around the same size as before. I was upset because my body gave me no indication that there was something wrong, I still had all of my pregnancy symptoms. My Dr. said that sometimes when the baby passes, that your body still supports the pregnancy because it doesn't know that the baby has passed away. I was immediately scheduled for a d & c within a couple of days. I was very disappointed but I realized that there was probably something wrong with the baby and that everything hadn't come together as it should. My husband and I plan to try again when my Dr. gives us the OK. I already have a daughter who just turned 2 which helped me since I already have a child. Good luck to everyone.View Thread
