    -------------------------------------------------------
    UPDATE: Thank you for all the prayers!! While I was expecting a dramatic experience, it looks like I may not even miscarry. My OB checked my HCG levels and they were really low (4 weeks pregnant level) so I think my body just reabsorbed everything and took the easy way out. Only time will tell for sure, but I'll be having my HCG levels checked again this week. The closer they are to zero the closer I am to having this all over with.
    -------------------------------------------------------

    I posted my news a couple of months ago, then got contacted by a company who wanted to buy the forums since I was going to be so busy with baby #2. For that reason, I hesitated posting this until now and I feel like I have to put this disclaimer on it: This is a personal posting and has nothing to do with administration of the forums or my ability to administer them, so please do not read this if you don't have an interest in my personal life. Thank you.

    I went in for my first ob appt 2 weeks ago and we couldn't find the heartbeat. I was 12 weeks pregnant. The OB wanted to schedule an ultrasound because she thought I didn't have my dates right. I knew I did so I started to worry a bit. I went in a few days later and we discovered that I had lost the baby sometime before 6 weeks and was carrying an empty gestational sac. I am now waiting to miscarry. I prefer to avoid invasive procedures and will take the natural route when possible so I am choosing not to have a D&C. I really am at peace with the loss now, and I'm trusting that God has a plan for us. I need prayer that my body will complete the miscarriage successfully and that I won't experience any complications that would require medical intervention. Thanks. :love:

    Amanda, I am sorry to hear about your loss. I found out we were pregnant with baby #2 in Jan. I turned in my letter to my school, and went into labor at 23 weeks. The baby only survived a few minutes after birth. I know that God has a plan for everyone, and even though we might not understand at the time, He would not lead us somewhere He knew we couldn't make it through.

    Wow. I am really sorry to hear this. Times like these you really realize what's important. Most people are frantic about the school year, what to get for decorations, how to manage our classes, what kind of assessment(s) to give, what to give hw on and some of us don't even have employment. And here you are going through something like this. Talk about a humbling experience. I hope you find the peace that passes all understanding. And may God grant you his joy. That the world didn't give and can't take away. There's a purpose and plan for our lives and even though we usually don't get it right away, at some point in our lives, the trials and tests we experience are def purposeful. Well wishes to you and yours.

    So sorry Amanda. We talked at school about how we have no idea what other people are going through. It is so true. Thank you for everything you do for us.

I will pray for you and your family. How have you been feeling? Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope that you have family and friends that are helping and comforting you. Bless your heart.

    It is sad to hear this news...

    With all the technology out there today...it is too bad they could not have done something or determined a better outcome for you and your family...

    nature seems to have taken over...and you are a witness that things happen for a reason....

    perhaps...within time...some discoveries can lead to what happened and why..so you will be better prepared in the future...
