Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

New to this board...Intro


I recently lost my unborn son he expired in the womb due to a placental abruption from complications from HELLP syndrome. (I literally had no earlier symptoms and developed HELLP overnight) (I was 8 months)

 I had to be in ICU for 3 days after my emergency C-section and in recovery 3 days after that. 

I miss my baby, and I wanted him so badly. My husband and I have been going to therapy to help us deal with this situation. We were so ready to be parents. We are both devastated. 

We have talked about TTC again in Dec/Jan since the OB told us to give my body time to heal properly. We also visited with a Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist who thoroughly explained everything to us. 

I cannot believe that I almost died the night I lost our baby...I held him and he was perfect. I loved him so much ((tears in eyes right now))...I am trying to be as strong as I possibly can. 

I hope that I can find advice and support from you ladies. I am sorry to be a downer in my first post, feel free to share your stories with me, and your journey. I also joined the TTCAL board. 

God bless and good luck everyone.
