    Default Pregnant without a baby

    I don't post on here much, but been around for a while. Anyway, the wife and I found out she was pregnant last month, it was an exciting time for us. However, we went to the doctor yesterday to have a sonogram. She's about 12 weeks by now. The sonogram showed the sac, but there was no baby to be found. It never developed.

    This really sucks because she was super excited, the sac continued to grow even without a fetus. The technical term, we found out, is a called a blighted ovum. Usually a pregnancy won't go this long (according to my internet research) but it does happen.

    What hurts the most is my wife kept repeated "We're going to meet our peanut" on the way to the doctor, referring to the size the fetus should have been. I don't really know how to deal with it myself, much less how to comfort my wife.

    Thanks for letting me vent.

    Been through similar things twice. Real sorry, sucks, not much to really say that would be helpful.

    Like DD, been thru similar things a couple times as well before my first was born. It's tough now, but you'll move past it.

    Sorry about the news. Peanut was lucky to have even been conceived by two such loving parents.
    Here's to hoping for the future.

    And wow, X, when you two do have children then it's obvious that you will love them so much. You'll be great parents.

    Very sorry to hear about that.

    My wife and I have been trying for a while (well over a year) and are now getting into fertility specialists and tests and all that. That scenario is one of my biggest fears as this whole thing has been stressful enough. I can't imagine adding that into the equation.

    My only advice (albeit limited) is to continue to love each other. That will get you through anything.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
