I've posted in other threads but thought I should post here.

My husband and I lost our first child on March 6, 2008. I was nearly 36 weeks pregnant. I had noticed he wasn't moving as much as usual but he was still moving so I shrugged it off as him running out of room. My next appointment we discovered no heartbeat. I still get an anxiety attack when I think about that appointment, and the ultrasound to confirm lack of heartbeat. I don't think I'll ever get that terror and panic out of my head.

I was induced and gave birth to him that evening.

The cord was around his neck, but they couldn't say if that's why he died. We have an appointment on May 1 with a doctor to go over all the test results and hopefully find out why....

My husband and I had been trying for nearly 2 years to get pregnant. We got pregnant with Devin on our second IVF attempt. Not only are we now mourning the loss of our beautiful son, but we're absolutely terrified that we won't be able to get pregnant again. And I am scared at the prospect of going through pregnancy again, knowing what I do, having been through what I did.

2 IVF babies and 1 surprise!
