How I'm Coping With A Miscarriage After A Miscarriage

I’ve been gone for quite a while and I’m sorry about that. I truly want to be a better blogger. Recently, my fiancé and I went through a trying time after having a miscarriage after a miscarriage and I wanted to share my experience with you all.

First Miscarriage

Last May, we found out we were pregnant. At first we were so scared, but after having time to think about it… we became so excited. At the end of June we had our first ultrasound which showed us that we had a blighted ovum. We were devastated. In July, we had a D&C. We wanted to try again because going through that showed us we really wanted to have a baby. (You can read more about this experience on our blog Road To Parenthood)

Second Miscarriage

So we continued trying and on January 30 of this year, we found out we were pregnant again. We were beyond thrilled, yet cautious because of what happened last time. In February I had some spotting so we went to the ER. They did an ultrasound which showed a baby with a heartbeat! This was so different than last time because we never got to see a baby. The doctor said the spotting was just implantation bleeding.

We told our friends and family and everyone was so excited for us. On March 12, I had started bleeding so we went to the ER and they did an ultrasound which showed the baby stopped growing and there was no heartbeat (I should have been 9 weeks then but the baby measured around 7). The doctor said that a baby doesn’t go from having a heartbeat to no heartbeat and that the baby had stopped developing. On March 14, I had a D&C.

What’s Next?

We were so heartbroken because we were so excited for this baby. The first time we got pregnant was a surprise but this one was planned and very wanted. I’m so grateful to have such an amazing partner. He has been nothing but supportive and there to always take care of me. I still have my moments and even cried this morning but I know that we will get through this and hopefully have a baby someday. My doctor has referred me to a specialist. She said she typically doesn’t do this until after 3 consecutive miscarriages, but she wants a baby for us too.

I feel like miscarriage is considered a taboo subject and not enough people talk about it. 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. I’m unfortunate that I’ve had to go through this twice in a row but I wanted to share my story so that hopefully other people will tell their story. If you ever need someone to talk to, I’m here!

  • We took Lucas to the fall festival in our community and he loved it. He loved the hay, the fog machines, all the kids and seeing costumes. He’s definitely more social than my husband and I which is going to keep us on our toes! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • This diaper caddy from @_mollieollie_ is amazing. Ever since I got it, it’s been on my bed every night. Lucas still bed shares with us and has bottles throughout the night so I keep some in it plus some tissue and other necessities. It’s amazing! It has pockets on the side as well as a zip up pocket. I keep my lip balm in there! You can use code 10FinallyMm to save 10% off! https://amzn.to/343qlCC

  • People have asked us if this baby was planned or unexpected. He was definitely wanted. Sean and I decided on having another and stopped birth control to have him. He wasn’t unplanned. Granted, having 2 under 2 is going to be rough and we know this.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This pregnancy has been a lot harder than my first. I found out i have placenta previa and then at my last appointment I found out that I also have vasa previa. Vasa praevia is a condition in which fetal blood vessels cross or run near the internal opening of the uterus. If I start having contractions, baby can bleed out and die. We will know more October 28 but it looks like I’ll be heading to the hospital when I’m 32 weeks and staying there for 3 weeks and deliver via csection at 35 weeks. It’s been hard to say the least but we will do whatever we need to do to make sure Baby L makes it earth side and is safe.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We love you and can’t wait for our family of 4 to be complete 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • I love Disneyland but experiencing it with my son brought a whole new experience. His favorite thing was World of Color. He didn’t look amused on rides but i could tell he loved them too. Can’t wait to go back! 🏰 .

  • My boys and I at the beach. Lucas had a blast visiting California. Crazy that it is his last trip there as an only child! So glad we went to Disneyland and the beach with him 💙
