Thank you soo much for your story!! I had a mc 2 years ago at 13 weeks pregnant. The baby had stopped developing at 6 weeks and we didn't know until they couldn't hear the heartbeat at my 13 week appointment. They sent me for a vaginal u/s and we could see our precious baby, but no heartbeat and only measuring at 6 weeks gestation.
We were devestated because we truly thought this was a miracle baby! Our 2 adorable boys; Aydyn 7 and Carsyn 6 were conceived through fertility so when we got pregnant we were ecstatic thinking we were able to conceive without fertility! Then we were devestated to find that the baby had not developed beyond 6 weeks! I opted to mc naturally at home; the process started about a week after we found out.
We found out this January that we are expecting baby #4-we both are again feeling this is a complete miracle since this baby was also conceived without fertility!! Because of my past mc I opted for a vaginal ultrasound at 7 weeks; when we went in for our u/s I instantly knew something was not right. The tech wouldn't tell me anything and kept asking me questions about when I ovulated, when my last period was, was I sure I ovulated then, etc, etc. She finally told us that there was a gestational sac and a yolk sac, but no baby! I left there devestated knowing that we had conceived when I said we did; there was no way I would be 2 weeks off. Anytime you have gone through fertility you are VERY in tune as to all of these dates; I am a regular 28 day cycle without fail!!! When my doctor called me I lost all hope at that point. He stated that I would mc and to be ready it would happen soon that this was not a viable pregnancy. The doctor wanted me to have my blood drawn, but I decided against it because when we mc at 13 weeks my numbers were all exactly 13 weeks!!! I didn't feel getting the "numbers" would put me at ease considering the last time if I hadn't mc naturally I still would have thought it was all a mistake!
When I went home I started reading stories of women diagnosed with BO or mc that is happening for no reason and I was shocked to learn that the diagnosis might not be correct. I put ALL of my faith in God and I feel he is in FULL control over this situation!! It is just wonderful to see that there is hope. I have a tilted uterus and understand that that can cause a situation where the baby might not be seen on the u/s. I am praying that the baby was just not able to be seen or hiding and that it is there somewhere healthy with a strong heartbeat!! I still feel VERY pregnant and short of cramping (which I had before the u/s) I have no other mc symptoms. I am just at a loss, but reading stories like this gives me hope that all might end well!! I sure hope so!! I have another u/s next Thursday, March 7th-the waiting is the worst part for sure; along with pregnancy symptoms that I don't understand or every little cramp or "feeling" seems to scare the poo right out of me-crazy huh?
Praying for you and your little one to be healthy throughout the entire 9 months with a wonderful celebration of life!!!! Goodluck and thank you so much for sharing your story! My hope is in the Lord, but it is nice to have hope here too!!!
