pregnancy after stillbirth

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
HI,
I saw these boards and I thought I would join along for the support. I was 9 months pg in Jan with a beautiful baby boy named Grant Alexander. He was due Feb 15th... I lost him 2 1/2 weeks before my due date. Everything was going fine, a wondeful pg from the start. I went in for a check up and he had a strong heartbeat, then 2 days later he died. We didn't know what had happened, everything was perfect up until then. The ultrasound couldn't even tell either. I noticed he wasn't kicking and went in to find out that the nightmare was true. I delivered the next day. My umblicial cord was wrapped around his neck 3 times and there was a knot in the cord as well. Needless to say it was the worst day of my lfe.

My husband and I have been grieving for a while now and we finally feel like we have a handle on things. I will always hurt and there will always be pain when I think of that day...but I did get to hold him and tell him I love him and say a sad goodbye, he was 6 pounds and absolutely beautiful, he was perfect.

Anyways, we are ready......we are ready as we will ever be....I want a another child...I have a toddler and that has kept me going...he needs his mommy. But we want another child...

I will never forget Grant and no other will ever replace him,,,I know you ladies know how I feel, I know you know the pain we go through....sometimes when all is well I will just start crying...I will be driving in my car and then all of a sudden the tears just start flowing...I don't know if that will ever go away..however, my family is moving on in a healthy way,,and I will find out May 5th if we are pg once again...oh, how I hope so....The Lord is in control.

Please pray for us,,we want to be pg so badly...
Thank you,
Jen

Hello again,
I have some wondeful news!!!!!
I am pregnant.....Yipeee....I found out this morning at 6:15am with a home pg test..then I drove myself to the hospital and took a blood test at 7am and pg was confirmed at 9am! Call me crazy but I had to know. I left my hubby and my toddler snoozing away...not me, I was pinging off the walls. How could I go back to sleep when I wanted to call everyone in the world and tell them... (I waited until 10am to call my friends-he he)

Well, I am thrilled...I am believing that we are getting this baby here,,,healthy, beautiful and alive,,,I refuse to fear, I put my faith and trust in the Lord..

Proverbs 3:4-6
Excited in TN,
Jen
