Sad news to share. On June 1, at my 12-week OB appointment, we discovered that our little Sprout had passed away. S/he was only measuring 10 weeks and had no heartbeat. I had two ultrasounds to confirm - one on a portable u/s machine, performed by my midwife, and one on a higher-quality machine, performed by a trained u/s technician. This picture is from the latter ultrasound.
I was shocked, and devastated, especially since four weeks previously I had seen Spout's lovely heartbeat flickering on the ultrasound screen.
My OB recommended a D&C, since natural miscarriages can be harder and more prone to complications the further along you are.
I agreed with his recommendation, and had the D&C yesterday. Thankfully everything went smoothly.
We named the baby Francis. S/he will be buried at our local Catholic cemetery on Saturday.
I'm so sorry to hear this. Praying for your healing mama's heart.ReplyDelete
