I’m in the middle of a long, drawn-out miscarriage. Well, what I thought was a long, drawn-out miscarriage. Now that I’m a little more educated about all of this, it seems to me that all miscarriages are a slog, both physically and emotionally. This is one of the many lessons I’ve learned while navigating this process.
We’ve all heard so many stories about what it is like to get that awful news in the ultrasound room. So when it happened to me, it was a little surreal. I remember thinking, “Ok, this is what it’s like.” The technician told me that the fetus was measuring two weeks behind. She wasn’t concerned, but I was. I was confident in my dates. As soon as she measured the baby, I knew the pregnancy was not meant to progress.
