I started having a miscarriage on Monday night, had it confirmed at the hospital on Tuesday morning. I?m devastated. I was 14 weeks but they baby stopped developing at 11 weeks. I was due to have my first scan next week.
I?m not in a relationship with the babies father but were really close and he?s been fantastic through the pregnancy. When I went to the hospital on Tuesday, I couldn?t get in contact with the father, so by the time I got hold of him I was at home. I opted for a natural miscarriage as I didn?t was a D&C
Babys father was there for me all day on Tuesday and he was so supportive. That evening, after a few drinks, its finally hit him about the baby and he cried, he was inconsolable an we cried together an held each other.
Then in the middle of the night, he went crazy, started shouting and saying I?d lied about the pregnancy, He was shouting an just kept saying I?d lied. I didn?t know how to react but eventually he cried again and hugged me.
The next day, he acted like nothing had happened. He didn?t talk about the baby or our loss, I tried to hug but there was just nothing. I was having bad cramps and all he could say was ?There?s nothing I can do?
He dropped me home later that morning, an I?ve heard nothing from him since then. No calls or txt. Today I?m having really bad cramps and theres a lot of blood and tissue. I feel like I just really need him with me. But I don?t even know what I?d say to him.
Can anyone give me any advice or anything
