I had a miscarriage in December 2007. We found out we were pregnant again on March 12th. About a week and a half ago, I had major bleeding and went to the ER. To our HUGE surprise, there was a fetus and a heartbeat. However, instead of measuring 8 weeks, it measured 6 weeks. There was a heartbeat but they couldn't tell me what the rate was. Last week we went for a follow up visit at my OB. They did an u/s and the baby was still alive but hadn't grown much. The heartrate was only 63. We go for another follow up this Wednesday to see if the baby has grown any and if the heartrate has increased to a normal/healthy rate. I am terrified. I know I should be 9 weeks now because I tested positive 2 days after my period should have started. There is no way I can be 2 weeks earlier than what I thought. And the heartrate is so low. I am terrified of losing another child. The other complicating factor is my husband- in December he had to leave town for a month the day after we found out we were miscarrying. I had to have the D&C and recover for a month without him. Like some cruel twist of fate, he is leaving again this coming weekend for a month and I am sick to my stomach when I think about going through the miscarriage process again by myself. How have other people coped with the stress of a miscarriage? How have other people gotten through this multiple times?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
