The Midwife called me about an hour and a half after my ultrasound. I would first like to say that whoever invented ultrasounds with a full bladder is cruel. That was my first ultrasound ever, and wow... I have never felt that pain of holding urine so badly in my life.

So it is confirmed, we did indeed have a miscarriage. The midwife said that the tissue etc that was expelled on Sunday was the baby. Ang and I are happy to have the final news. We still feel a great loss, but have come to terms with the fact that the baby was not healthy, or developing properly.

We have been given the ok to start trying again as sooner or as later as we want. It is suggested that we wait at least one normal cycle, before we try again. But that all looks healthy in my uterus, and that's more than we knew last time we tried.

We will make an appointment with my family doctor to discuss my medication. I am assuming that I will need to go back on my metformin. I will also ask that when I get pregnant again, if I can please have some closer monitoring of things, earlier ultrasound, monitoring of my hormone levels etc.

I can't help but worry that this will happen every time I get pregnant, even if they say that it is still only as likely to happen as if I had never had a miscarriage. Always a 20% chance.

I'll be back to work tomorrow morning.
Thanks everyone for all the support.
