Late Term and Child Loss

i am sad to say i am joining this as well.

I just wanted to share my story with you ladies, with hope that i can find piece and some reassurance here, at least find women that i can relate too.

My husband and i witnessed our first loss in February of 2008 @ 9 weeks and i found that was due to a partial molar pregnancy.

 In September 2011 our son Adam Elijah was brought into the world and he is our true blessing from God.

We found out we were expecting again in August of 2012 and we were so excited that we were going to be bringing another life into the world and that our son was going to be a big brother. We found that we were going to be having a girl and i was so happy and couldn't believe it that i was going to finally have my little girl that i could put in dresses and do her hair i was so excited. I had a normal pregnancy somewhat except i had pre-term contractions like i did when i was pregnant with my son but they started much earlier this time. Around 30 weeks i started having mild cramping and i didn't think much of it because it was severe and also when i was about 31weeks pregnant i started dilating with my son. I ended up going to the doctor the next day only to find out that our beautiful baby girl had no heartbeat. Our daughter Grace Nicole Gray was born on February 14th 2013 and went to be with Jesus. She was sweet and perfect in every way and look just like her big brother. This was the hardest thing that our family has ever had to go through. About 6 weeks later mt doctor told me that i was diagnosed with MTHFR a gene mutation and from what i have been reading im not the only one who suffers from this. I would like sometime in the future to get pregnant again and i know that if my husband and i are meant to have another baby that God will bless us with one. Thank you for letting me share my story with you.

  • It hurts to welcome people to this board, to join means you have gone through such a great loss. I do not know that much about MTHFR, do they have treatment for it? I hope you are blessed with a rainbow soon.

  • I'm so sorry for the loss of your baby girl. I lost my daughter like you and I also have MTHFR. The put me on a lot of extra folic acid and a baby vitamin a day with my pregnancies after Haley. I always lost every other baby. With Haley when I got past three months I thought the curse was gone how wrong I was. I am here for you if you want to talk.

  • Huge hugs to you. I also have MTHFR (compound - one of the A gene and one of the C gene). I was diagnosed after our second loss. I currently take extra folic acid, B-complex with B-12 and B-6, a Baby Aspirin in addition to my regular prenatal. Some doctors give prescriptions that have the same ingredients in them.

    We also have a daughter, Grace who is now in Heaven. It is such a beautiful name.  I am so sorry that you find yourself here on this board but please know that you have come to a very supportive and understanding group. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. We lost our son around 31 weeks he was born sleeping on may 1st. My heart goes out to you. A loss at any number of weeks is hard but to the point you have to go through the whole labor and delivery and have to leave emppty handed and have a funeral is just beyond painful. I wish you comfort and peace and a speedy recovery .
