I lost my baby due to having uterine fibroids

Hello,

I lost my baby on Saturday March 30, 2013. He was only 18 weeks and 3 days. I didn't find out about my fibroids until I was 2 months, the doctor said I didn't have anything to worry about because they were located high and I was having a scheduled c-section ( I had one with my first child who is 15).  I'm still in shock. I was just 4 1/2 months pregnant last week with a baby bump and now my stomach is flat.  We have been trying to have a child for almost 10 years, so when I found out I was pregnant on December 21 I thought God was giving me an early Christmas gift. It's killing me that, this  could have been prevented. I have regular pap exams, so I don't know why I was never told before now. My baby was growing, healthy, and strong. The fibroids grew to big and caused me to go into Pre-term labor. My doctor says we can try again in about a year, but I'll be 36 in May and I have worries about being able to conceive. 


Please, this is the hardest thing I have been through. I'd appreciate feedback from anyone that has experienced this or knows someone who has.  

Thank you.

I had two fibroids outside the uterus. One doctor said they wouldn't cause a problem and another doctor who was removing my endometriosis said he was removing them because even though they themselves might not cause problems that they and endo were releasing toxins preventing me from getting pregnant. It took us 4 years and that surgery to get pregnant and we lost him at 11 weeks. Found after I have another stupid fibroid now inside the uterus which my doctor said is so tiny it won't be an issue but who knows? I'm tired of doctors. I'm now working with a naturopath.

The word "fibroids" makes cringe. I can't wait to speak to my doctor. I go to my post labor appt on 4/15/13 I need to know what my future looks like. Reading all of these articles online is driving me crazy.  I wish you well and hope you a happy and healthy baby :)
