My rainbow — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

My rainbow

Pregnant with our rainbow.

2012 we lost our little girl. She was full term and stillborn. We never got answers to what happened.

This go around my doctor has me doing lovenox shots. Because I do have MTHFR.

The plan right now is to be induced at 36 weeks. I also am seeing a pediatric cardiologist. To double check my little mans heart is strong.

Anyone else in a similar situation, that may have some suggestions.

    January PAL siggie challenge; Good advice:

  • I hope you find comfort in the extra care and medication you are receiving. I am so very sorry for the loss of your sweet girl. Although my situation ended differently, I do have the same fears. My son could have very easily been stillborn if I hadn't been induced and if the doctors hadn't reacted so quickly. He had a blood clot in his umbilical cord that broke off and gave the placenta a stroke. He was without oxygen for 10 minutes. My 50-something-year-old doctor had never seen anything like it before - the cord and placenta looked perfectly fine from the outside but the pathology report gave us answers. I wonder with your MTHFR if you could have had something similar happen? I begged for bloodwork which they wouldn't give me until after my second early miscarriage and everything came back normal. I'm on BA for this pregnancy and if the unspeakable happens again she will start me on Lovenox. I just want something, anything for peace of mind. It sounds like they have a great plan in place for you. Just remember that this is a totally different pregnancy and try not to let the worry get in the way of your joy and happiness!

  • I am so sorry for the loss of your little girl.  (((HUGS)))

    Congratulations on this pregnancy.  I don't have any experience with MTHFR or your late loss situation, but it does sound like your doctors are monitoring you well and have a plan in place.  Wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months!

    Everyone is welcome

  • My doctor is so wonderful! I know I'm in good hands with him he's so cautious with everything. @goldengirl84‌ they tested everything the umbilical cord and placenta everything came back perfect which is why it's such a mystery.

    Thank you ladies for all your support and kind words.
