OK so I had my first pregnancy when I was 21, right after my husband and I got married. At my 8 week sonogram there was a sack with no heartbeat. My husband and I knew no better what to expect, so we thought, aw look at our baby. The tech didn't say anything to us and the next day my doctor calls me to get another sonogram done. so 4 days later i got another done and turns out that the embryo stopped growing and just left the sack in. So as upset as i was i went in for a D & C. It was very painful to go threw for your first pregnancy. Then 1 and 1/2 yrs later we started to try again, and sure enough i was pregnant and to go threw that pregnancy day by day thinking anything can go wrong was very stressful. Then full term baby was a boy, now 2 yrs old. then 1 month before he turns 1, i found out i was pregnant with our second. 2 weeks after i found out i started bleeding. So I got my blood count done and found out i had lost another. upset but very thankful to have the one i do have, i was still upset. Then just 2 months after that i was pregnant again. so i just had our second baby boy who was born on the day my very first pregnancy was due! i find that to be ironic!

Hi! i got pregant with a girl and everything went great! After her me and my husband tryed for another baby and i lost 3 in a year at different times(3mths pregnant and less). I finaly had my boy 5 mths ago. I read somewhere that boy sperm isnt as strong as the female sperm.But it is faster. Wich is why it is harder to carry full term then a girl (im not saying that every miscarige is a boy) So maybe for some reason as painful as it is to loose a baby the timing might of ben wrong ect...but if u were ment to have a boy it will happen. not that im happy that i lost those other babies but my daughter was still young and i am greatful that i got to spend more alone time with her since my son that i adore takes up soo much time. i think everything happens for a reason

wow i think your story is quite strange, i read the other day that female sperm thrive in a acidic environment but male sperm thrive in an alkaline environment, could this be the same with embro's as you have two boys? i've also heard that women have many misscarrages but don't even know they are pregnant because it's so early on, and the embryo is in a hostile environment and thats how it's caused. i think this is why doctors say come back in a year if your not pregnant when you ask for advice on getting pregnant when you think you cant

Jessica, I also\ know what its like to lose your first child. I didn't have to have a D & C tho. But 2 weeks after my first was due, I found out I was pregnant again. I was so worried that I'd lose him too, we didnt start baby shopping til I was 7 months, just to be safe, but now I have a very healthy (brat) boy.. I want more children but I'm scared it'll be like the first. My gram, mom and sister all had it happen that way. miscarriage, child, miscarriage, child, so it's kinda freaky...



Wow that is weird that both ur mom and grand mom had that happen in the same order. I know my doctor told me that 1 in every 5 have misscarages and for every women she would have 1 misscarage for every 3 prednacies. it just a common thing. but im just glad that my misscarages were at early stages and not fully deveolped babies.well i do hope you try again till you have another baby, its well worth it as u would know. thanks for reading my story!

i am so sorry to hear that but also a big congratulations , i also lost my first child at 15 weeks , its heartbreaking and made my next pregnancy very long and drawn out as i was fretting everyday it might happen again , but i have a beautiful baby boy as well , after my first misscariage we had a burial for our baby and planted some roses for him , a little girl only 4 years old said to me " dont worry the spirits of the earth will take care of him until he is strong enough to come back " i was stunned a little girl could say something like that , but of all the things people did and said it was that little girls words that comforted me , you are so blessed to have your little ones , i wish you all the best for your family , your a strong woman .


WoW, those words from that lil girl just gave me chills! im sorry to hear about ur baby. ur a much bigger person to go that far and to lose a child. I look at what i went threw and hear stories about women losing theirs much farther then what i did, and think how would i ever come back from that. im so glad to hear that you did have another child and i hope god keeps him healthy as he watches over you and your family! thanks for reading my story!

the same thing happened to me! i got pregnant 3 years ago & lost the baby @ 12 weeks.. so when i got pregnant last year i was paranoid up until the day i delivered february 17 2009 that my son wouldnt make it.. my actual due date was march 8th, the same exact due date i was given 3 years ago! i guess it was God's way of showing me not to lose faith!

jamie, im sorry to hear you went threw it as well. It is very though to deal with. luckily you did have kids first! it feels much worse to go threw the miscarage before having any children. And i feel so bad for the women who are unable to have any children, my heart goes out to them all. thanks for reading my story! god bless u and ur family!

I am sorry you had to have a D&C, I had to have one at 9weeks when noo heartbeat could be found. It was a horrific experience. So much I dont want to have anymore kids for fear of having to d it again. Bless the child we have and those we have lost.
