Hi my name is Lisa…I am 40 years old and have had 3 miscarriages.
My first miscarriage was my second pregnancy. We found out at 7 weeks things were not progressing like they should. At 9 weeks we knew it was going to happen…It finally happened at 11 weeks. I had horrible cramping and felt miserable. We were told that it was a blighted ovum…Where the egg didn’t fertilze…as my midwife put it in terms of a chicken the egg was empty.
We conceived 2 months later and I had a healthy pregnancy. We waited until our second child was 1 before we started trying..trying for us didn’t come easy…It took us over a year to conceive the 4th pregnancy…I miscarried about a week after finding out. I never went in for this one…I couldn’t..That was in April of 2012.
In June of 2012 we conceived again at 6 weeks I started spotting..went in started blood work…I miscarried on July 12, 2012…Because I was over 35 they watched me carefully…I was doing blood draws weekly to make sure my levels went down to normal…Well being married of coarse I had sex with my husband 2 weeks after the miscarriage…
We found out in August of 2012 that our 3rd child was on the way! His pregnancy was more difficult due to the miscarriages but I wouldn’t change it for the world…I now have 3 children ages 4,7.5 and 12.
