It's over. I went in this morning, looking forward to seeing my baby's heartbeat. Last it was strong - 158 bpm. Today it wasn't there. They gave me options: (1) wait for my body to miscarry - that can take 2-4 weeks, or 4-6 weeks, I can't remember, (2) take some medication which will start it sooner, within 48 hours to 1 week, and (3) D&C. I don't know what to do. I've heard people on these blogs saying that a D&C can be awful, so I told them I wanted to take the medication. Both the hubs and the doc said that maybe I should wait a day to make up my mind. So now I'm home - can't go to work right now. Can't believe I actually drove myself home. I cannot believe this is happening. My baby is dead.
