Hi. My name is Sara. I have a 17 month old son. Right after his first birthday I became pregnant with our second child. I was ecstatic. We were not trying nor were we trying to prevent it. I just knew even before I took the test that I was pregnant, I hadn’t even missed my period yet. I had my first appt around 9 weeks. Everything was perfect. The baby had a strong heart beat and was measuring fine. The baby was kicking like crazy. I was so excited I couldn’t wait to feel those kicks. My pregnancy was great I never had any morning sickness, no tiredness, nothing. My first pregnancy was the same way. The only problems I had with my first were I had a glucose intolerance which was fine once I cut out carbs from my diet and I started to develop preeclampsia but it wasn’t a concern since I was almost 2 weeks overdue. I had my next doc appt around 12 weeks. Everything seemed fine. When the doc went to listen for the heart beat it took him a minuet to find it, but he found it and said it was a good one. He than scheduled my next appt for 5 weeks. That appt was going to be the one were you have the u/s and can find out the sex. I could not wait for that day to came. It was torturer waiting. I wanted to have that ultrasound 1. To make sure the baby was fine. After leaving the last appt I just felt so uneasy even though the doc said it was fine. Also I really want know the sex. ( I really wanted a girl). The day finally came (2//9/11). I was only one the table for 5 mins but I knew something wasn’t right in the first min. The tech left the room and when she returned I was asked to go into the doc office. He then told me that the baby had no heart beat and was measuring around 16 weeks. I was a little over 18 weeks. I went in a day later for a d & c since my doc recommended it. That was horrible. It was worse than when I went into labor with my son. They don’t know the reason why it happened. I know it’s not my fault. I hear it from everyone. I just can’t help but thinking that maybe if I had opted for the genetic testing I would have know something or maybe found out sooner. I didn’t opt this pregnancy since my first on went so well and I did have all the testing with him. It’s tough to deal with. You always hear once you make it to the second trimester, you can relax a little.
