    Ladies (Huge TRIGGS!!!)

    [TRIGGER] Be careful what you post on other boards. Apparently I've been stalked. And now I'm being badgered to tell my 'story' which is actually pretty personal. So in case any of you who ARE my friends read a post on another board and were wondering, here it is....

    Two weeks ago, I went to the hospital for the routine u/s for our 4th child. DH and I were told there was a date discrepancy as well as some blood but that with hearing the hb, there was an 8% chance of miscarriage. So we had an appointment Monday (DH's birthday) to go back for a 2nd u/s.

    So we went Monday expecting all to be well. The tech searched and searched; the silence was deafening; she then apologized. So DH and I found out on Monday that our 4th baby had left us some time in the past two weeks. I was 12 weeks pregnant.

    After two grueling heart wrenching days, I finally made an appointment yesterday to have the D&C. I had a very hard time making the decision. Sadly it was all done within 30 minutes. Now my baby is nothing more than a memory.

    Thanks to all that give me support. I really do appreciate you; you know who you are. To those that want to meddle, lose my email address; you also know who you are.

    I'm sorry for both, the lost of your baby and that you are feeling badgered. No reason you should feel the need to share more than you want to. I know when I had my miscarriage last July I did not want to talk about it with anyone. Especially not right away. I was able to share more with my mom and sister a few weeks later. They had lots of questions which was irritating to me. Do what you need to do. ((hugs))
    MrsWhiteCastle responded:
    Oh, I am so, so sorry. It's such a difficult time, and then to be made worse by others is terrible.

    It's hard to make the decision to have a D&C, but, IMO, the time spent waiting to m/c, and then physically doing it, is worse.

    The emotional part will probably take awhile, but I hope physically you aren't hurting too badly.

    Nice post. You know how sorry I am about your baby. I'm also sorry that you had to post so soon about something so difficult for you.

    It would be nice if those people who come on here with intentions other than being sincerely supportive of everyone here- since we are all in the same boat as parents of young children- would take a long look in the mirror about their behavior and meanness. How would you feel if someone posted nasty anonymous posts about your child somewhere that your child could read them? Or how would you feel if your child knew you were purposely being mean to others?

    This is a message Board about parenting, not high school drama and cattiness- and most of us are long past high school. Everyoen doesn't have to thinkt he sme way about an issue, but there's no reason to be mean and petty- espcially anonymously.

    I'm so sorry. I'm also sorry that you had to tell your story before you were ready.

    I've had 4 miscarriages. I still haven't talked to others about my last 2. Do what you need to do.

    Vics I second what you said. I know I'm new here but I came here for support and to offer support when I could.
