    Miscarried today

    I've been having cramps and bleeding since Tuesday and doctor took an ultrasound yesterday and said my baby was measuring 5 weeks at the most when I should have been 8 weeks. They took blood to measure my hormone levels and today he called to tell me my hormone levels were dropping and that I was miscarrying and if it didn't happen within a week to follow up with him. I got out of the car at WalMart today and could feel it happen, so I rushed to the bathroom. I'm hoping to heal soon. Boyfriend and I are going to wait at least 3 months to try again.


    In the meantime, I'm going to work on myself, becoming healthier, losing at least 17 lbs and working on a healthy lifestyle. Both my boyfriend and I are coping well, we know that it wasn't meant to be but that we are meant to have a healthy beautiful baby when the time is right.

    I am sorry for what you both are going through. I miscarried in September. And like you, "dot" was measuring 5 weeks when I was supposed to be 8 or 9 weeks. It is hard. Give yourself plenty of time to grieve. I hope you feel better soon.
