I'm so sorry the weekend brought such sadness to you and to Momandmurray! I'm glad you're doing better now and are growing stronger. You might also find our Coping With Pregnancy Loss community a place for some additional support.
According to WebMD, "No treatment can stop a miscarriage. As long as you do not have heavy blood loss, a fever, weakness, or other signs of infection, you can let a miscarriage follow its own course . This can take several days."
You can check out that link for more details on what to expect. Please let us know how you're doing.
If you haven't heard this enough since you've been here...Welcome to the 1st Trimester Community!! This is one of the most exciting (and exhausting) times of your life and we are so happy to be sharing it with you!
Of course, this is optional, but if you'd like to participate, just post your answers to the questions below and I'll get the list prepared for Monday's posting..
Your first name
Your Estimated Due Date (EDD)
Your Team (Green = want to know the sex, Yellow = don't want to know the sex, Pink or Blue if you already know the sex)
Upcoming Important Dates (First OB/Gyn appt, first U/S, etc.)
This is our List as of July 25, 2011! If you'd like to be added next week, please add your info below. PLEASE don't forget to update with any changes!

We'd like to get your point of view and give you a chance to sound off on some controversial topics, so each week we'll post a new thread with some differing opinions, some WebMD resources, and let you make the call.
This first week, we're sounding off on Genetic Testing . Here's what a few mom's are already saying:
