Just wanted to let people know that the miscarriage started early Friday morning and is still going strong. Pain and bleeding aren’t too bad, but the emotional pain is much worse. My husband and I are bonding like never before which is amazing…we are both heartbroken, but are happy the miscarriage started Friday, as the waiting part was really, really getting to me. Now, we will be able to move forward and start to heal when this is behind us in a few days. (I hope it’s over in a few days! Can last longer, up to two weeks I believe) I’ll get an ultrasound in a few weeks to make sure everything is OK. If not, they’ll have to to a D&C..so cross your fingers that this natural process works perfectly.
Thanks everyone..this is just so painful, but I do know in my heart it was for the best (Something wasn’t right) so I do take comfort in that.

Oh Jenn, that must be so hard. It sounds like you are in a good place to deal with this, and have good support in your husband.

Thanks guys. Yes, my support system is wonderful. My husband has been amazing. Friday night (during the worst of it), he went to the bathroom with me (stood out in the hall) each time I went. I laughed a few times and said, “Honey, you don’t have to come with me” and he said, “No! Of course I’m coming with you…” He was just concerned and wanted to make sure I was OK. It was so sweet and made me feel so loved. He’s made so many trips the last few days to get anything I’ve needed. I tell you, the bond between a husband and wife during trying times such as these is just amazing. I feel more in love with him than ever before and don’t know what I’d do without him.
My pain (cramps) has gotten much worse this afternoon than ever though. I was hoping that it would gradually get better, but today is much worse. He’s been great with getting me the heating pad and trying to make me smile. I’m cherishing the good moments.

Thanks everyone. I’m planning to return to work tomorrow..hoping I feel much better by then. I took today off to rest (took a 3 hour nap this afternoon) and I’m just taking it easy. I’m doing a little better emotionally…pain isn’t nearly as “raw” and I’m not crying very much anymore. I think it’ll get a little easier each day. To anyone who has ever gone through this, now I KNOW what it is like. I never could really understand when others’ mentioned this, because I simply couldn’t relate. Now I can and it’s awful. It’s a horrible, horrible thing and it hurts like nothing I’ve ever experienced. But I’m coming out on the other side stronger and closer than ever with my husband and I do know we’ll be just fine.

I’m sorry for your loss, and will be praying for your family.
My sister miscarried during her first pregnancy about two years back, and now she’s got a bouncing baby boy =)
