Discovered MMC today @ 12+3 weeks :(


Hi everyone. I had an ultrasound today that I was very nervous about, because I just 'felt' like something has been wrong this entire pregnancy. Sure enough, at what was supposed to be 12+3 weeks, the baby was measuring 7+3 weeks with no heartbeat. I tried to hold it in during the ultrasound, but after the doctor came in and explained what had happened, I broke down. Thank goodness OH was there. My first two pregnancies were 100% completely complication free, and then I had a chemical last January which I thought was quite common. I still cannot believe this is happening. I'm waiting for the hospital to call me to schedule my D&C this week I want to start trying again as soon as I can, I just hope my nerves can take it. How am I supposed to handle another pregnancy without having anxiety attacks every day.

Thank you for letting me share.

Sorry for your loss. It is so sad and hard to hear the baby has stopped growing when you should have seen the heartbeat. I too had a MMC at 12 weeks. Take care

So sorry for your loss. We've had the same happen today . 12 week scan showed baby with no heartbeat and only measuring 8 weeks . Made harder by the fact that an early scan at 7 weeks showed good heartbeat.

This is my second MMC, I had one in April 2011 where baby only measured around 6 weeks at 12 week scan. It seems my body just holds onto them! Thankfully in between the two losses I had a healthy pregnancy resulting in our beautiful daughter who is 9 months old today.

I am booked in for D&C on Wednesday x

hun your going to be nervous the next time around. Please give your body some time to heal even if its just a month. I have 3 kids and I have 3 losses my losses were all back to back. LMP July 2011 d&e Sept 2011, got pregnant Oct or Nov (never got a period) didn't know I was pregnant until I was already miscarrying Jan 2012. Got a period 3 1/2 weeks later got pregnant March (was not ttc with any of my pregnancies) all was well then my baby's heart stopped at 13.2 weeks had d&e at 14 weeks.

I normally do not try to get pregnant but I do not use protections, if it happens it happens. I was told between all 3 of my losses 2-6 weeks of no sex and a month to 3 months to wait to ttc. I was then told maybe I should wait 6 months to a year if I was ttc but I am not ttc. I have taken precautions to make sure I do not get pregnant, well right after my loss I was taking precautions. I am now back to if it happens it happens and I am terrified of getting pregnant but then part of me wants to allow myself to get pregnant. Its hard.

How afwul to get that news, on an ultrasound which should have been so nice to see, too. Thinking of you. Look after yourself and try to get some rest.

Thanks, everyone. My D&C is today. I'm pretty nervous - I've never had any kind of medical procedure done like this before. Doesn't help that we've had a mega snow storm for the last 3 days, either. Yikes. But I'm feeling a bit better now.

I am so sorry.. I know we posted together in the first trimester forum. I just found out I have a blighted ovum. I know it's hard but we will get through it. Hopefully we will be able to get pregnant again soon with our happy and healthy rainbow babies.
