My Story....

I tried to put in the origional post but had too much trouble but IO wanted to post! **Child, PG & M/C mentioned** Here is my story… Me 30 ~ DH 32 In June 2008 we decided to TTC & I went off the pill. After literally 1 cycle I was pregnant. I had my beautiful little girl in April 2009. Pregnancy & delivery were healthy and uneventful. In Nov 2009 we decided to start TTC for baby #2, went off the pill the beginning of Dec and after 2 cycles found out I was pregnant (wasn’t tracking just having fun BD). On the evening of Feb 27, 2010 I noticed a bit of blood on TP. By the next morning Feb 28, I was defiantly spotting. Spent 6 hours in ER after ultrasound, internal ultrasound and blood work, they assumed I was M/C and told me to come back the next day for more blood work to confirm. M/C on my own over the next few days. :o( My Due date was Oct 17….coming up very soon After talking to my doctor she told me there was no reason to wait that after waiting for 1 cycle (to be able to date a new Pg) we could start trying again. I didn’t even have 1 cycle and found out I was PG. We were so excited, but extremely scared and nervous. At 7 weeks we heard our little peanuts heartbeat at the doctor’s office, it was in the high 150’s. At 11 weeks we had our first ultrasound, we saw our little peanut moving like crazy and heart beat was still around the high 15o’s. We took home 3 pictures that day. At that time we told our family and friends. As I work in a Jail, I was relocated to another job so not to have contact with inmates. All my co-workers obviously new I was PG at this time as well. At 12 week I went for my for my regular Prenatal appoint. & again everything was great HB was still a strong high 150’s. She wanted another ultrasound because the Tec had a hard time seeing the “nuclear translucency measurement”. At 14 weeks I went for the follow up ultrasound at 11am without DH as it was JUST a follow up. During the ultrasound the Tec questioned me how far along I was etc. & then said she wanted to review the other results from a few weeks ago. She told me to empty my bladder and she would go check the other results and then finish up. I went to the bathroom and whenI came out I she was not back yet and I looked at the screen. I’m no TEC but it said something about 12 weeks 4 days, & I thought to myself. Wait that’s not right, and I started to worry…. A few min later she came back in and sat down and started again. I think she could see the terror in my eyes because she turned to me and asked me if I wanted to know what was going on. I said YES, and she then told me my baby no longer had a HB. I can’t even put into words how I felt at that moment!! She was amazing with me, everyone I had to deal with was. I had to go back to my doc office so the doctors could go over everything in detail, and then he book a appoint with my OB/GYN for 3pm that afternoon. I saw him ad he explained the 3 options, natural, medicated or D&C. I opted for the D&C and they did it that evening at 8pm. The worst day of my life!!! June 10, 2010…. My due date was Dec 15, 2010. So here I am, since my last M/C I have had 3 cycles all BFN. I have being using OPK’s all 3 cycles and tracking, just not temping YET, if I don’t get my BFP this month I’m going to start temping next cycle. Sorry if I rambled, but this is the first time I have actually sat and wrote my story so a bit overwhelming for me. Plus I have had a rough few weeks…. And I’m still in control, we just happen to have 3, YES 3 other preggos I have to work with daily, and its really been tough, as they are all due within 2 weeks of my last PG due date!!! I never knew how much I depended on this TTCAM board until it wasn’t there! Thanks ladies !!! Here’s hoping I get my BFP on OCT 18!!! Lots of Baby Dust for us all!!! PS. How do I put a picture in for my profile pic???

I am so sorry your last two pregnancies ended the way they did :( I guess the silver lining (if you can find one in such a terrible situation) is that it seems that getting pregnant is not a problem for you. I think after two losses, you need to have some testing done. This could be something as simple as a clotting disorder that can be easily treated with meds. If that's the case, you should only be a couple cycles away from your next BFP and maybe after some testing, they can figure out what they need to do to make it stick. Is there a reason you have pursued testing to see if there isn't an apparent cause of the losses?

Thanks! Its been 3 cycles so far and nothing .... I realize thats not long for some but after 2 losses this year alone it devastating and super stressful for me... My doctor said that if I have another loss they will look into it.... So I guess I just hoping that wont happen again!!!

Welcome here to TTCAM. Im so sorry about your two losses. Your first miscarriage is always shocking. But the one at 14 weeks must have been especially devastating, after already hearing the hb and seeing your little one moving around in there. I know your EDD is coming up fast. I hope that you can do something special next week to remember and memorialize your angel baby.

I hope youll stick around and post some more. We would love to learn more about you.

I'm so sorry for your losses. We both had our first losses at the same time (I was due Oct. 18th and I m/c'd on Feb. 26th). I hope you find out why you've miscarried & get your sticky BFP soon.

I am so sorry for your losses. I know it is so frustrating and sad when you don't get the results that you want and need. I wish this process was easy for us all.

Hugs....
