Hello there ladies, nice to meet you all.

My name is Izzy and I am 20. I have had three losses so far in my life, all quite early on, the earliest being nearly 5weeks.
The one that I found the most awful was at 7 weeks; It was a bit longer into it, so I felt a bigger connection than the others, I'm sort of ashamed to say. I had a feeling the child was female, so I gave her a name: Karleigh. This was July this year.
Needless to say, I am WTTC for quite some time into the future. I really feel like a successful pregnancy could still happen: though when I had my last loss I felt devastated and never wanted to become pregnant ever again, which has now changed back to a more Wanting but Waiting thought. I am trying to stay optimistic about it; but it gets hard to think about sometimes. I believe I could of MCed frequently due to the medication I am on, and the fact I was quite overweight and smoked often. Next time I TTC or NTNP I will make an effort to change these things.
I'm afraid that is all I want to share for now... But thank you for welcoming me, xo

Please, don't be ashamed for feeling more connected to the baby you carried the longest. You had more time to bond with her. I definitely felt/feel more connected to the baby I carried for 11 weeks.

I've named all four of mine and was too early to be told the gender. We have a Dominic, Gwendolyn, Aiden, and Jillian in Heaven.

Have you ever had your progesterone checked? That is a very common cause for early losses like yours.

A sad, but warm welcome. I'm Meagan and DH is Nathan. We had our first loss together when I was 17 and just had our rainbow baby. I am 23 and DH is 26. I was diagnosed with Lupus Anticoagulant, which is a clotting disorder. I carried my rainbow baby to term taking a low dose aspirin and Prometrium(for low progesterone). I look foward to getting to know you more.

Hello My name is Elizabeth. I too have a stronger connection witht he two thatI carried the longest which were my first and last losses. I'm up to 4 so far with 5 babies in Heaven Jeziah, Apollos. Luna, Winter and Onyx Bahari. With Jeziah, we had genetic testing done that determined gender but I was right. And I was right with my DD Angelica so I've always trusted myself on what gender my babies were. today has been 6 months wsince my last loss. I'm very sorry that you had to join us here.

Oh sweetie, do not feel bad! I am the same way. I've had 8 total losses, 5 of them "chemicals".. I have no connection to them at all. Nothing. I can't even tell you the days that I lost them.

The other three however, I am connected. The first of the three more than the other two.

*HUGS* to you

Hi and welcome <3

I've had four miscarriages and two second-trimester losses (twins), though that was a complicated and sad story. I never named my babies - I was barely able to deal with the losses, if they'd had names I would have lost it completely - but, I felt very connected to each of my babies, and loved them as much as I do my living children. My living children came after all my losses.

Many hugs to you, hoping for your rainbow baby when you're ready to try again!
