We just sent our second angel baby to heaven yesterday and are beside ourselves with grief. Our first baby, we lost at 10w6d in Nov. 2011...just started bleeding, went to the hospital, had an u/s, saw the babies heart beating, then passed the baby 3 days later. We got pregnant again May 27 and were sooooooo excited. We did everything right. Went to the doctor to confirm, saw the baby, then heard the heartbeat at 10 weeks. Went in for a routine exam Tues., couldn't find the heartbeat, so we went for an u/s where we saw the baby, curled up, we saw the spine, head, legs, but no heartbeat. Our second angel was dead. We went yesterday morning to have a D&C. We were 14w2d, but the baby measured at 13 weeks and only in the 6th percentile, so the baby had passed in the last week and was small. We actually feel better now that its "over"...its tough when you know your child is dead inside you. Has anyone else gone through this? Did you try again? How did you get through it? We seem to have no problem getting pregnant, just staying that way. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

So sorry for your loss. As another lady said take time for your body to heal and for you/dh to mentally heal as it is a process.
