Here we go again!!

A few of my friends are starting to try for a baby. Once the talk gets started, it's hard to not want to try along with them. Neal and I discuss again and both agree to try to make a baby. You know how it goes, Third times a charm!

Well, not in our case. Beginning of March 2010 I get another positive pregnancy test!! I felt this was it. OMG, we're going to have a baby! Nothing can go wrong now! How stupid of me.

March 23rd, again I have red bleeding. Go to the doctors where I thought I measuring 6 weeks 1 day but am told that I'm only measuring 5 weeks 2 days. I knew it right then, it wasn't going to last. The doctor is optimistic though and tells us to come back in a week to see how things are progressing.

One week later the ultrasound tech tell us that I'm measuring 6 weeks 1 day. So the baby has grown. We see what we think is a slight flicker of a heartbeat. Speak with the doctor who says, give it some more time and we'll do another ultrasound. He wanted me to wait 2 weeks to come back and I told him no way could I wait that long. So we agreed on 10 days.

April 9, 2010... there's no heartbeat. I'm completely devastated. Immediately start crying. Poor Neal just wanted to comfort me, but he couldn't cause the doctor was still in the middle of preforming a vaginal ultrasound. Scheduled another D&C for Monday, April 12th.

We spoke to the doctor about why this happened again and he couldn't answer us right then. He's having testing done and we won't have those answers for another 2 weeks or so. Also I go back for my two week check up on Tuesday April 27th and at that time I'm getting a blood panel done to see if there's something wrong with me. I could have a clotting disorder or something else going on that is causing the miscarriage. Neal and I will wait the results of these tests to see what our next step will be.


  1. I have no words, just (hugs) I hope the best for you in the future.
