I felt so hopeful with this pregnancy…

But I lost the baby hummingbird. I thought it was just normal, early pregnancy spotting that started last night but by the morning, the bleeding was so heavy.

After spending half the day in the ER, along with blood work, an internal exam, and an ultrasound, my worst fear was confirmed.

This baby was such a surprise but also very loved and wanted as soon as I saw the test turn positive.

I’m completely heartbroken.

    I’m so very sorry. There was no doubt from all your words that your little surprise was very, very much wanted and loved. I wish there was more I could say but I know it’s likely only time will help. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts.

    Been there, and honestly, I can’t think of one thing to say that might help, other than, I am so sorry for your loss, and hope that you are given the opportunity to grieve. (I know you are doing a ton with the move and all.) Thinking of you… EA

    I have been there, and while I don’t know exactly how you feel, I have a pretty good idea. I am so sorry for your loss. Allow yourself to grieve. I didn’t at first because it seemed too early, like it wasn’t a real baby yet, compared to other women who lost them later in their pregnancies. But she was very real. I wish you peace.
