I am new here! My name is Dana and my son, Grant, was stillborn at 37 weeks on March 7, 2002. We have no idea why he died, other than it was God's will. I had a perfect pregnancy and when he was born, he was absolutly perfect - except for the fact that he wasn't breathing. It was all very sudden. He was fine that morning, but by the evening, I noticed that he was not moving. We went to the hospital and when we had the u/s, we heard the most heart shattering word's I think I will EVER hear, "There's no heartbeat". We were totally blind-sighted. We really think that it was a cord accident because when I delivered him, his cord was wrapped in a figure-8 around his ankles. We were told that it was possible that it had caused the cord to kink and cut off the oxygen. We will never really know if that was the true cause or not, but that's what we think happened.
It has been over 13 months and I think I am finally ready to ttc. I have "baby fever" so bad but I really try not to let it consume me. I don't know anythng about charting but I plan to start with my next cycle (around April 24). My dh really doesn't want to know when it's "peak" time, his plan is that "when it happens, it happens". I don't know, maybe it's different for men.
Anyway, I just wanted to say "Hello". I know I'm gonna need lots of support because the whole process of ttc will be bittersweet.
I look forward to getting to know you all better (but if some of you get + and leave before I get the chance to know - then that is WONDERFUL :)
