Hello everyone, I'm Allie everyone calls me Leecie a 29 year old living in Las Vegas NV. I've recently been introduced to this website/forum by a dear friend and my PCP. My DH and I have a 23 month old baby girl who we do cherish, shortly after having her we got pregnant again. At 33 weeks our twin boys were born stillborn, doctors only told me it was because we didn't wait long enough and my body didn't have time to recoup after our first child. Something about my sodium and potassium levels not being high enough to support the pregnancy and their little hearts. (Honestly I still don't understand fully) I immediately went and got the IUD inserted as I cannot take hormonal BC. It migrated out on its own about a month ago. DH and I have been talking and he wants to TTC again but I'm so anxious and stressed. I don't think I could go through that loss again, and he doesn't seem to understand. When we had our daughter I was 137# and 5'7" tall. After the loss of our boys I was 148#, after the stress and depression I'm currently 213# I know I've let myself go and often spend the day crying and eating. I've finally decided I wanted to get healthy again, start exercising stop the junk food and spend more active time with our daughter. This is when he decides to want to try again. I'm afraid my health will be a factor again in losing another precious baby. I'm also afraid I won't be able to be active during pregnancy or I'll lose another baby. I don't know what to do and every time I try talking to DH about it he gives pacification responses and try's to reassure me. I get so angry because he isn't the one who has to go through the physical changes but then I get mad at myself because he too experiences the loss and I feel like I'm not being considerate of him. It's driving a wedge in our relationship because I'm afraid to try again. Thanks for letting me rant.
