we werent planning on having any more children anyway, and have discussed adopting later if we so decide to change our minds. however, even though we didnt want any more doenst mean we didnt want a full term pregnancy. at least this time i know what to expect and can prepare for it that way. i can also focus on the two beautiful little girls that we have. somehow, even knowing what we lost, it doesnt trouble me as bad or make me as sad as the others did. i dont understand that. maybe its just because it hasnt happened yet, its going to soon, either way. my dr said today that it was only a matter of time. so i am scheduled for a d&c wednesday, even if it does happen before then, which i expect it to happen soon.
i did find some of the same research that you did about it stopping implantation, and that was when i decided that i wanted mine out, that and the side effects i was having with it. however, it ended up coming out by itself before i could go to the dr and have it taken out. and so i got pregnant four weeks later, i do believe, like you said, that the hormones left in my system caused my baby to not develop. nobody should ever have to go through that. i am thankful that my husband got a vasectomy, though, because now we never have to worry about going through this ever again. five times is enough for me, thanks.
