Went to the E.R. and was placed on threatened miscarriage status at 7 weeks, four days. As soon as I got home I began to bleed heavily. I've filled three pads today. I passed what looks like a gray spongy disc shape I'm assuming was the placenta (any similar experiences?) - because I have never seen this in my life. I don't know for sure. I saw my baby's heartbeat yesterday, so I'm still hoping. But I can't help but feel suddenly very alone and sure that my fear was right. It's almost surreal - seems like something everyone fears but in the back of their mind are saying "That could never happen to me."
