We were pregnant with number two and over the moon! At six weeks I had some spotting and cramping, nothing major but it stopped after a few days...
I had an ultrasound at eight weeks and learned that baby had stopped growing at around six weeks. Sadness, fear, and emptiness were instant. Had D&C four days later.
I feel alone most days in my grief. Not many understand it. I work in 'Labor and Delivery', so it is bittersweet. Watching babies come into the world all day is often painful. I accept what happened but I'm terrified to try again.
