Hello everyone,

I just wanted to share my story in regards to my experience with my loss. It was 4 months after I had my son that I found out I was pregnant again. Which was something that we really wanted. I wanted to have my children close in age. My pregnancy with my son was really good he was born in August no complaints what so ever. I took a pregnancy test in November and went to the Dr. a few days later. They did the ultra sound and said that I was really early. They guessed maybe 4 weeks. I went back 2 weeks later which was supposed to be 6 weeks so they could see better and make sure everything was ok. During that time I already had names picked out and I had even bought more maternity close since I didn't buy much during my first pregnancy. It was a few days before my birthday that I had my Dr. appt. I went in with my sister and when we go in for the ultra sound they couldn't find the baby... All they could see was the empty sack... My heart just melted... I knew something was wrong when I saw nothing inside. They kept on looking but found nothing. I had a blighted ovum and I broke down. I didn't know what it was or why it had happened. I thought something was wrong with me but the dr. sat down with me and just let me know that there wasn't anything I could have done to stop it from happening. I was given 3 choices have a D&C, take a pill that would make my body have a miscarriage, or let my body do it naturally. I opted for the D&C after speaking to my husband. My appt was on a Thursday, I let them know my decision on Friday, and I went in for the procedure on Saturday. As far as the procedure went I felt fine afterwards.. Just sleepy because of the anesthesia but I was fine after my nap. I bled for maybe 3 days and then had some discharge. That Monday was my birthday... I had just gone through this emotional roller coaster in a few days but I had my son. I honestly don't think it would have been able to handle it if it wasn't for my son. I know it's not the same for everyone and it sucks.. It really does... This month will be 4 months since my D&C. I have yet to get my period which is supposedly normal Idk... It depends on everyone but I think I want it so bad that I even get fake cramps and such. I am waiting for the day that I can have another child..

Hi, Thank you for sharing your story. It is so hard to go through a loss like that. I have a little girl at home and I'm just so thankful we were able to have one healthy baby, even if it's all we are ever able to have. I'm headed in for my second D&C on Monday. Hope you get your cycle soon. Have you checked to make sure you're not already pregnant again? I've heard that happens.
