Hi, I'm new here... kind of. I used to be a member under a different SN during the time of my first loss.
Anyways, my name is Kristen, and I'm 17.
I've had three losses; a boy at 16w 1d and twin girls at 15w 4d. I don't have any other children.
As far as doctor's have seen, I don't have any obvious defects or anything that would be causing these losses... and I'm told they were probably due to my lifestyle at the time of the pregnancies
I've been having some bad days lately, so I'd just like to be able to talk sometimes! And I'd really love to help out some other people if at all possible.
So that about covers it, I just wanted to give and intro, and I'm excited to meet you all!
needs to make a siggy!!!

Kristen I am very sorry for your losses. It is hard to have to deal with such huge things - but particularly when you are so young. I hope you have some sources for suport IRL - like maybe your parents, BF, friends. I am also glad you decided to reach out here. It is important to talk with others that can understand what you hve been through as well. I noticed you added your angels on the calendar as well - I think it will help you - as it allows us all to show eachother extra support at particularly difficult times. I am sorry you have hurt so deeply - but glad you have come to a place to receive the love & support you need to help you begin to heal.

Much love-

Thank you so much for your understanding... most people don't understand how hard the whole situation is!
It's such a relief to find more people who have been through the same things I have
At this age there's just so many more stresses to add onto that, so it gets rough. I've got a few good friends, and my BF is great about it. It's just hard because they haven't really BEEN there . So I'm very glad to be here!

Hi Kristen.. I am so sorry for you losses sweetie.. I can understand the pain that comes with losses at such a young age.. My first loss was when I was 14 & my second at 15. I'm 19 now, and just lost another pregnancy, twins, in July. I think I can understand how hard it is to be so young and vulnerable.. I know how hard it was for me to be around people my age when I was suffering a loss.. I know that most of my friends didn't understand why it bothered me so much, because, as you said, they hadn't BEEN there! It's sad, but I think that very few people can understand the bond between the mother and her unborn from the moment the pregnancy begins.. And most women our age aren't thinking about being pregnant yet. **sigh** Oh, sweetie.. I'm so so sorry you're going through this.. My heart aches for you...

I hope you're friends and BF are supportive enough, and that you have other IRL support as well. I would personally love to be able to support you in any way possible. I'll send you a PM once you have your 10 posts so we can chat sometime.. Please know that we're all here for you.. I'm glad you've found us.
