XP from miscarriage/Pregnancy loss...(looks like the loss board fits better with my situation)
Hello everyone, sad to be here but glad for the support. Figured writing my story would be therapeutic so here is a bit more about me and my baby angel.
Had an ultrasound on Feb 26th at 36 weeks. Everything
looked great. Was already 1cm dilated, baby had dropped. We were
expecting her to come a bit early because I think the due dates were off
(I had used FF to get pregnant)
On Friday March first went to the OB. She did an exam and I was 2.5cm dilated and she could feel baby's head. Checked for HB, and couldn't find it. She sent us to MFM at the hospital for an ultrasound. Our baby, Anastasia, had no heartbeat. Of course absolutely shocking and devastating. We went in the next morning to be induced. Labor was pretty easy, but not emotionally of course. She was beautiful. Our OB sent samples out for testing, and it was confirmed there was no disease. There was some clotting in the placenta and she said it was like a heart attack, and very rare. Like being hit by lightning. She does not think it should happen again. We'll be doing post partum blood work at 6 weeks. Seeing our OB in 3 weeks.
We had a service for Ana on March 4th and will be burying her when the weather is nice in the spring.
I've never felt such pain, but we're getting through. My husband and I are stronger than we could ever imagine. This was our first baby, and we were 100% ready for her. We're ready to try as soon as we get the red light from our doc. Right now, I'm going day by day. luckily I have a few more weeks off from work to recover physically.Sorry all of us are here, T & Ps you to all. Thanks for listening.
**All AL Welcome**
