Melissa--your story of the first baby is a miracle! If I had gone through something similar, there would be no way I would have a D/C..just thinking that it might be the same as your first experience. Don't let your family convince you of anything that you can't convince yourself of. YOU have to be 100% positive of what is going on inside of you, regardless of what the US says, what the numbers say, what your family says. I remember making the same decision earlier this year about having a D/E done. The doctors were convinced for 2 weeks about the outcome, but I wasn't. Even my husband was leaning toward the D/E bc I am sure he was so tired and sad seeing me so upset. But it wasn't until I was ready to say okay to it...you just can't tell a mother what to do!
I am praying that you are feeling okay and that hopefully you have another successful misdiagnosed miscarriage story!
