miscarriage at 16 weeks

Sarah • Mom of a 2 year old, recovering from loss
I went to the dr for my regular checkup and she was not able to find a heartbeat. My world was turned upside down. Baby was measuring at 14 1/2 weeks. He/she must have passed the week before. Such a surreal feeling to know your baby is dead inside of you. I was able to see him/her curled up in my belly on the ultrasound. Had to have a D&C this weekend because my doctor said it would be too painful to pass on my own. Still trying to wrap my brain around it all.
