Hello everyone!
Here is my intro/short version of my story.

My name is Bonnie and DH is Bill; we've been married for one year today!!! (March 22). On Friday we found out we are expecting for our third time!
The first pregnancy we discovoered on May 21, 2008. Four days later I miscarried at 4 weeks 6 days pregnant. On June 26, 2008, when AF was 2 days past due, we found out we were expecting again! We had an u/s on July 31 at 9 weeks 3 days and all was well. On October 23 we had the big u/s at 21 weeks 3 days. We found out we were having a son! Roald Wallace Lightner!

On October 29 I got a call saying we were scheduled for another u/s on November 19 as he had measured a little bit to small. I was told nothing was wrong, though. On November 13 I had a regular appointment. The nurse, then the doctor, were unable to get his heartbeat on the doppler. I was sent for an emergency u/s where there was nothing but the sound of air and no movement. I was admitted to the hospital that night and induced early the next morning.

I was in labor from 11:00 AM Friday, November 14 until I gave birth at 12:30 AM Saturday, November 15. Roald was 1 pound 0 ounces even and 11 inches long. I was 24 weeks 5 days pregnant. He was laid to rest on November 20. He had a lean/thin umbilical cord with little or no Wharton's jelly, which may or may not have been caused by my severe morning sickness with heavy vomiting. Most babies who have a lean cord are fine and are delivered safely, but are usually small for gestational age. If their cord becomes twisted or bends, it can cut off all blood and oxygen to baby, resulting in death. That is what happened. It is not genetic and not LIKELY to happen again.

We officially started TTC in March. My EDD was March 2 and that was my first fertile day. We were not "active" March 3 and I was also fertile on March 4 and we were active, lol. I remember feeling O cramping even on March 5. On Wednesday and Thursday I had faint BFPs and on Friday I finally got that definite BFP!! We conceived around Roald's due date!!!

Thanks everyone and hi Brittanie!!!

I've wanted to post more but for some reason our computer chose the perfect weekend to start giving us problems grr. It is almost 6 years old, so I should have seen this coming, lol. Hopefully it passes or we figure out what the problem is!

Thanks again!

Hi Bonnie!

It is such a miracle that you concieved when your son should have been due. I bet he's guarding over this new little one!
