Re: Pregnancy Loss Thread...

My first pregnancy with dd was unplanned but perfect. So when it came time to get pregnant again I thought nothing could go wrong. At 20 weeks I found out my baby Ethan had a NTD, anencephaly. I continued my pregnany until the 37th week, cherishing every time he kicked and moved knowing that those would be my memories of him. We had 3-d ultrasounds done and marveled at his little expressions in utero. He was amazing. At 37 weeks I had a c-section (supposedly less traumatic, with the best chance of seeing him alive). I met my little boy and he cried and was loved for almost 2 hours before he left us. He would've been 2 years old this past March. I took tons of folic acid and became pregnant 2 more times both ended in miscarriage the first at 11 weeks and again at 8weeks. My fifth pregnancy was a keeper. Isabella was just fine. But I still ache. Each day she grows I'm reminded of what I lost. You never truley get over it.
Good luck to all of you.
