Worst news ever

We found out that we lost both babies today at our appointment. Neither baby had a heart beat and when he measured them, Baby A was only at 10 weeks 4 days and Baby B was at 10 weeks 1 day. So it happened shortly after our last appointment.
I have a D&C (where they go in and remove the babies and everything from the uterus) scheduled for this Thursday. And then the babies will be sent off for genetic testing to see what possibly happened. We also found out today that they were mono-dy twins, which meant they were in fact identical.
This is extremely devastating news for us and right now I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel. We got our hopes up so high and made so many plans and this just crushed both of us. I know we will make it through this but it's going to be pretty hard for a while. I can't stop crying, my eyes are swollen and stinging and my head hurts. But David has been right by my side since we got the news and he's being the best husband ever.
Thank you all so much for your support. Your texts, cards, and flowers have meant so much to me, you couldn't possibly understand.
