IVF #2: Results

I choose to have the tissue from my D&C tested for genetic abnormalities.  The results came in this morning — our baby had a chromosomal abnormality, Trisomy 14, that was likely the cause of the miscarriage.

It is somewhat comforting to know that something was wrong, that there was a reason, that it was not our fault.  But, still, the loss is overwhelming.

What’s even more heartbreaking is this:  it was a girl.
