Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Hope after D&E

Everting was going fine but at 21 weeks we found out the baby had major heart issues that were not compatible with life everything happened so fast we had to have a induction of labor. It was very traumatic and sad experience . All my prior genetic tests , NT scan were fine and baby had cytogenetic a etc no abnormal ones found. Seems this was random. This happened back in October thankfully my periods came back fine. Doctor said we can try now. I hope I get pregnant soon I’m 34. I’m just scared what if this all happens agai? What if there is another abnormality on my scan? I’m so anxious for the future. Everyone around me is having healthy babies. I just want to be a mom. Any one with similar experience with good outcomes for any morsel of hope 

Re: Hope after D&E

  • I have a friend who went through something similar. Her baby had heart, lung, and brain/head abnormalities found at the anatomy scan. Doctor said it was a complete fluke that it happened. She's had 2 babies since then and received extra monitoring (at least with the first baby) to make sure everything was good. She was anxious her entire pregnancy following the TFMR but it all ended well. Don't give up hope!
