First, thanks for all the replies to my earlier post about my friend who is losing her baby at 16 weeks (torn amniotic sac). Your advice was all terrific and it reminded me how much I love the people on this site. Second, sadly, I just wanted to update you — she was rushed to the hospital this morning with a high fever and they're taking the baby, via D&C, now. Finally, one more question, since so many of you were helpful before: the fever could indicate an infected the womb, the doctors told her. What does this mean? Could it cause infertility? Please keep your fingers crossed for her. She tried so, so hard to get pregnant and this will be her second miscarriage. :( Thanks again, all.
