I am new here, i wanted to share my story with you all to let you all know there is HOPE!
I am 36 mom to 5 kids oldest being `17 youngest being just 10 months. I am currently breastfeeding my 10 month old round the clock, and i have 1 ovary instead of 2. Imagine my suprise to find out i was pregnant! I thought i was safe, not that pregnancy is a bad thing however my husband is far from delighted as my youngest is a bit high maintenence.
upon discovering i was pregnant i had an ultrasound to determine my due date since i had not had a period to go by. In that ultrasound nothing was seen but a lump on my ovary. I was instructed i might not be pregnant or it might be eptopic, given instructions and sent home to wait it out. About 5 days later i ended up in the ER with pain, again nothing was seen within my uterus itself, just a cyst on my ovary, was told they were not sure why nothing was seen. A week later saw an ob, he did the ultrasound found an empty sac, said i had a really tilted uterus, which is why noone could find anything. Ok so thinking all was ok, i went on about my way til 3 weeks had passed from first ultrasound, that was 2 weeks ago, i went in for follow up, i was told sac measured 7 weeks, hard to see fetal pole, what she saw was questionable and measured 6 weeks, no cardiac activity, i was doomed for miscarriage. I was told to go home and wait for the blood to commence. I was sad, shaking, broken hearted, i ran to my mom, she comforted me as only a mommy can. I waited, cramps, backache, brown spotting that changed to light brown then to yellow.........2 weeks passed still no blood though.....wow what is taking so long, why wont my body just accept the baby is dead and get on with it! Waiting on a miscarriage is just awful. You still feel pregnant, still wake up nauseas so i need my pepsi, and junk food to settle my tummy, still have sore nipples wincing through each nursing session with my daughter, and my uterus its still growing, popping out. Im confused, so i called the clinic, they had me in today, talked to the tech, she told me oh the waiting is normal it can take 6 weeks but maybe i should go to my doc and schedule a dNc? That convo pretty much made me realize this is really happening, so up on the table i went, heart sunk into my stomach, funny thing happened, completely amazing, she touched the ultrasound wand to my belly, cold oozy jelly, all the sudden there was my peanut, kicking her arms and legs,visably a baby, heart pounding away, i knew what i saw, noone had to tell me! the tech cried this is remarkable, everyone come in here, we have a baby here!!! I cried in happiness, there was my miracle , she caught up to the sac, 9 weeks 1 day, she is due feb 14th a valentines day baby
my heart is so light and i cant wipe away the smile, he or she is alive, after all the odds said this baby was doomed, here he or she is dancing in my belly! I had to share this story, to bring you all hope! Dont let someone tell you to get a dnc get second and third opinions, dont give up, each baby is different, wait it out a bit, redo the ultrasound after a week or 2 to see if the baby is growing, if the heart can finally be seen fluttering, dont let someone tell you your pregnancy is doomed! I wish you all the luck and baby dust, and lots of love!
