Re: [IP] Some sad news

Hi Susan-

So sorry about your loss.  Just wanted to share a similar experience with you....

My husband and I had been trying for a pregnancy for 9 years.  We gave up.
Well one day I went to the dr. because I felt like crap.  Surprise surpise, we
finally hit the jackpot, I was pregnant.  I was about 3 months along when I went
in for an ultra sound.  They could no longer find the hearbeat.  The look on
the radiologist's face said it all.  My world collapsed.  Had I done something
wrong with my diabetes control?  Was I not watching my bg's closely enough?
Did I mess up on my diet?  I blamed myself.  It took me about a year to
realize that it was not my fault (even though the dr. assured me from the
beginning that it was not my fault).  Right now there are probably no words to
describe your pain, but try not to blame yourself as I did.  Try to pick up the
and go on.  I know that's tough advice right now, but don't let depression
get the best of you as I did.

Like you, I ended up having a D&C.  The stress caused some pretty eratic
bg's, but I managed to bring them back into control eventually.

Thinking of you...
