No body told me what to do in case this happened. Alone in the bathroom I just cried and cried...

They sent me home on bed rest, only to get up on Monday to go to a doctors appointment - I lost the baby in the bathroom.

All I wanted to do is be a mom. I got married and right away started to try to get pregnant.

4 years later, we finally did...at 8 weeks I started bleeding...The doctor didn't think I was actually pregnant but sent me to ER to be sure (body signs and positive test) . I was pregnant and my blood count was good. Internal ultra sound was done.

At the doctors office they said it was full miscarry. Waiting 3 months and try again. So I did. Got pregnant again. Only to miscarry a few days later. Same advice .. Wait 3 months. But 11 weeks later I still had all the signs of pregnancy so they had me go to the office. Sure enough .. I was pregnant with twins and only had miscarried one .. I was 11 weeks pregnant.

Already passed the first miscarry time and soon the 3 months zone! He is a healthy 22 year old now! He graduated from college early with honors! If I hadn't miscarried Sara (named after the nurse in the ER) at 8 weeks I would not have my gift from god

    My very special angel babies

    I didn't need ten days, I passed my baby the next day, I knew I was no longer pregnant, the second scan confirmed a blighted ovum, but to me that wasn't a blighted ovum, that was my baby.

    Ectopic confusion

    On that Monday I remember saying to the nurse, "I'm worried it might be ectopic." Her reply was that it probably wasn't. And that was that.

    I never knew there was such a thing as a missed miscarriage

    The best thing anyone said to us was that parenthood is a roller coaster, sometimes right from the start - I think it sums up our experience perfectly.
