Yesterday I went for what would have been a 12 week sonogram. (I also had one at 6.5 weeks just to confirm pregnancy) where I was able to see the heart beating and a bit of movement (floating really). Unfortunately, yesterdays sono showed that the heart was no longer beating and the baby was measuring about the same as when I went in the first time. I know that these things happen for a reason, but of course I can't help but thinking it was something that I did in the "very" early days of my pregnancy that caused it. Could that be true? I also think that maybe my having an iud for 4+ years could have been a factor. Before I found out that I was pregnant I was taking large doses of migraine medication and asprin. Then once I found out I was pregnant I still continued to have small amounts of caffeine because I couldn't handle the rebound headaches that I was getting when I tried to stop cold turkey. (I stopped the caffeine around what would have been 8 weeks). I am just worried that these things may have contributed to the miscarriage. I have so much guilt now and this being my 3rd pregnancy, I know that I shouldn't but its really hard.View Thread
