Mom to Aubre Lynn and Colton Scott
Miscarried June 23rd, 2011 and June 24th, 2011
Where to start? Well, my husband (Scott) and I tried for 3 years to conceive on our own. Finally, we went and saw a fertility specialist. Long story short we conceived on our 1st try! We both were very excited. My fertility Dr. told me with what my blood count was at he was thinking it was multiples. We ended up conceiving twins. We both were very excited; matter of fact our whole family was excited. I was doing great, feeling great and all of the ultrasounds were great. We had an ultrasound on June 22nd, 2011 (I was 18 weeks 1 day). Both babies were very active and moving around a lot.
On June 23rd I decided I was going to go paint at our new house we had just bought (getting ready to move in). I went home that night, and I felt like I had a gas bubble that needed to pass. I went to the bathroom, and I delivered our daughter Aubre Lynn in the toilet (something I will NEVER EVER forget). I yelled for Scott and was not sure if he heard me or not, so I picked her up and carried her to our bedroom. Scott was in shock: I was like call 911. I felt so bad for him. He was a nervous wreck. He called my best friend, and she was at our house in 10 mins. I was very calm for what was going on.
They ended up life flighting me to a hospital in Pittsburgh. I had about 8-9 people waiting for me when I go off the helicopter. They were wonderful, but all I wanted was Scott. The Dr.’s told me I was going to deliver the 2nd baby, and that is when I started to cry. I delivered Colton Scott on June 24th, 2011 @ 12:25am, and they pronounced him dead at 1:00 am. We had a viewing and funeral for them.
I love both of our kids, and I miss and think about them each and everyday. It has been 6 weeks, and I am ready to try again, but am afraid to try again. Each day does get a little better, but some days are worse than others. I have had lots of blood work done but no answers yet. I am hoping we can figure out what is going on before our next pregnancy.
This is something I would NEVER wish on my worst enemy. No parent should ever have to bear the loss of their child!
