Mom to Victoria Joy
Born December 28th, 2009 at 36w 1d, survived only about 2 hours
I was 12 weeks when I had my first sonogram appointment. Most people go to their first appointment excited, not imagining something may be wrong with their baby. The technician pretty much immediately found something wrong with my baby, specifically the tummy. They measured the nuchal fold and everything else which looked fine. They weren’t sure if it was omphalocele or gastroschisis. They explained the difference and that they would be sending me for more tests and ultrasounds, etc. I was devastated that something was wrong with my little girl. I was the last patient to leave the office and I just didn’t know what to do but cry.

Paislee Ann born still at 24 weeks, September 2nd, 2010
We went to the doctor and she told us to wait one cycle, so that is exactly what we did. We got a BFP in November of ’09. We were pregnant again, but this time tried not to get to excited. I read the odds of reoccurring miscarriages weren’t too high so I was expecting a healthy August ’10 baby. Not so much. At 10 weeks I started spotting brown again and went in to the doctor where they told me the baby died a 7 weeks and 1 day. I was scheduled for a D & C five days later. I woke up the day before by D & C to horrible cramping and sat on the toilet only to pass so much blood I wasn’t sure what to do. I ended up having an emergency D & C due to the heavy blood loss and drop in blood pressure.
Again we sat at the doctor’s office where we were told, wait a cycle and you can try again. We ended up getting our BFP April 2010. I would go to the office very three days to get blood work to make sure my HCG counts were doubling and they were.
