I had two babies at 20 and 22 with no problems. When I was 23, I got pregnant again and just assumed that positive test meant a baby in eight months. I had my first prenatal appointment and was excited for the next one, when I would hopefully hear the heartbeat for the first time. Around nine weeks, I suddenly had the urge to take another pregnancy test for no explainable reason. A week later I began spotting pink. I called the OB, expecting to be told it was normal and to ta
After two healthy, uncomplicated pregnancies we were blessed with one more. After struggling with PCOS this had been an amazing achievement. This pregnancy was different from the start, with horrid nausea plaguing me from the get go. At our 16 week check up we learned our baby had died and a D&C was scheduled for the following day. We decided she was a girl and named her Daisy. A couple months later, after two rounds of clomid we were pregnant again. At 18 weeks we learned we
I thought I was pregnant but wasn't quite sure. The night I decided I was going tomorrow morning to get a test, I miscarried. It was November 16, 2007. I wasn't really sure what to feel or what to say. Nobody in my family would tell anyone else like they were ashamed for me. Like it was a secret that couldn't be told. Two years later, I once again thought I had another miscarriage, or so the doctor thought. I was to come back in a couple of weeks and have my hormones tested t
I have had 5 back to back miscarriages after I had my daughter in a 5 year span. I have seeked medical help from a fertility specialist, I was taking progesterone, aspirin, fulgard folic acid, and prednisone along with prenatals and still no success. I keep losing my babies between 7 and 8 weeks. I wish I had answers.
After years of trying to conceive, doctor after doctor, and heartache after heartache, I had finally came to terms with the fact that I would never bear children. Many times I found myself crying and feeling ashamed because I felt like as a woman, the one the God created women for was to create children, and I could not. I saw women every day that did not want the children they had, women at the doctor planning their abortions, women giving their kids away to total strangers!
I found out I was first pregnant right around my 20th birthday. There are no words to describe how excited me and my boyfriend were. I went to the doctor the first time and they said everything looked fine, except the baby was smaller than he/she should have been according to my last period. They even told me I could hear my own babies heartbeat. So they wanted to see me the following week to check and make sure everything was okay. I go to the doctor the next week and they t
In November 2013, I was blessed to get pregnant for the first time in my life. My husband and I had been married for five years and decided it was time to start a family. To our blessing, our first time actually trying -- we got pregnant. Unfortunately, 1 week after I confirmed my pregnancy (approximately 5 weeks pregnant); I experienced bad cramps and miscarried in the middle of the night. It has taken a few months to overcome the pain of the early loss, as well as strugglin
I miscarried at 6 weeks and 5 days. I was 23.Turned out I had an ovarian cyst the symptoms of which I had repeatedly been informing my doctor of but he was putting it down to stress. Almost a year to the date I found out I was pregnant my boyfriend cheated on me and is now married with another child. Me and my new boyfriend have been trying for 2 years now and nothing yet. We are going to look into fertility treatment next year and our hearts are breaking that we can't get pr
I am 34 and it was my first pregnancy. We found out very early that we were pregnant; I hadn't even missed a period. We chose to tell all of our friends and coworkers after an ultra sound at 8 1/2 weeks where we saw a strong regular heart beat and the growth measured appropriately. At 10 weeks and 2 days I started spotting. It was very light and I had no cramping so I wasn't exactly freaking out yet. Early the next morning I woke up and used the rest room where I woke up with
My husband and I have been married for 15 years and trying to get pregnant for 5 of those years. When we started this journey we thought it would be really easy. Both of us love kids and come from large families, I am one of six and my husband is one of five kids. We are still on our journey we have been through 3 IVF cycles and one donor egg cycle with no implantation. We fall in the category of unexplained infertility. This journey has been very hard for us and strains any
