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 tried the tortellini from @kitehillfoods last night and it was amazing! I was not vegan growing up and it reminded me of the tortellini I ate growing up. Being vegan doesn’t mean you eat salads all day, just means you aren’t harming animals because I’m definitely a carb and junk food vegan! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • In honor of Valentine’s Day yesterday and also our 34 month anniversary, I wanted to share our story. My husband and I met on AOL when I was 11 and he was 13... that was 19 years ago!! He lived in Chicago and I lived in California. We talked online all the time. Eventually we even talked on the phone. Of course, it was just friendly but we always remained in contact. There’d be some times where we would go without talking. He had relationships and so did I. When my mom was in the hospital in August of 2015, he was just there for me in a way I didn’t know I needed. In 2016, we just started talking more and more and decided that it was time to meet. In April, he flew out to visit me in California. We haven’t been apart for more than a week since then. He’s my best friend. He is the perfect partner. Always there for me. Always makes me laugh. I hope everyone has or finds a partner like him 💖

  • When I decided to go vegan, I didn’t just eat a plant based diet... it became my lifestyle. Therefore it was important to me to make sure I used makeup that was cruelty free and vegan. One thing that was hard for me to find a good replacement for was the chapstick I used prior to going vegan. I tried so many but couldn’t find a great one. Then I came across @hurrawbalm and that’s what I’ve been using for almost 3 years now! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Today is my mom’s birthday. She would’ve been 64. She passed away in 2015 and didn’t get to see me get married or meet her grandson but I know she would be proud of me. I miss her with all of my heart and wish she could’ve met my husband and son but I see my mom in Lucas and it’s nice to see a little piece of her. Happy birthday Mom 🎂🧁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
