Miscarriage & Still Birth Board Index

[QUOTE=2005&2007;3412186]I just found this board and thought I would share my story since its been so hard for me to talk to anyone about this.

My name is Shannon and in March of 2005 I was about seven days late, but started spotting. My husband was sure I was pregnant and asked me to take a test. I went to the store and bought one. It had a faint positive, but I didn't believe it so I went to the hospital.

I peed in a cup and walked out to the nurse station. She asked me, "If its negative would you like to learn about birth contr....never mind! We dont need to worry about that! Your PREGNANT!"

The VERY next day I started really bleeding. I was at work and as soon as I got off I went to the ER with my husband. When I first walked in the Dr said, "You're having a miscarriage." I couldn't believe it. I was so happy to be pregnant after six months of trying and this just broke my heart.

Two ultrasounds, a blood test and an internal exam later the Dr said it was twins and they had no heartbeat. He said I would need "the shot" to help me miscarry and if it didn't work, surgery or I would die! This was Sunday morning, I had until Monday afternoon to come back.

Monday morning came and my husband called around all day to find a new Dr for a second opinion. Thats when we found my current Dr. He did his own ultrasound and looked over my hospital records from the day before. He said it was twins, but one was fine.

After ten weeks of bleeding, being put on bedrest four times and 39 weeks, 4 days of growing HUGE my daughter was born. She was 7 lbs 3 oz.

Everyone thinks because I have her it doesn't matter that my other baby, Aiden, died. No one acts like Aiden was ever there. I really have a hard time with it everytime my girls are playing. I just keep thinking, "I should have three little kids down on the floor playing, not two!) Its been hard and I'm not quite sure how to handle it![/QUOTE]

My older sister went through the same thing the last time she was pregnent so your story really hit home with me. First I just want to tell you that I'm so sorry for what you are going through, I couldn't even imagine the pain you have went through and are still going through with having a Miscarriage. Some people may not bring it up because they dont know how you feel about talking about it, they may not want to make you feel sad or hurt your feelings by bringing it up because its a very touchy subject... or maybe they are just having a really hard time dealing with it, something like that is hard for not only you but everyone around you.. When my sister had a miscarriage it really broke my heart and honestly I just didn't know what to tell her, I didn't know how to bring it up and I didn't know if she even wanted me too so that might be why nobody has brought it up to you. I'm not sure if this helps you any but I just thought I would share my experience with you. God bless you and your family and Aiden is in gods arms and when the time is right you will be with your baby again.
