In my first and only pregnancy thus far-as I have mentioned before I lost joseph at five months and that was about 4 months ago now. Baby and I were both healthy and I had no complications other than he tangled his umbilical cord around his neck and died b/c of that.
Has this happened to anyone else???
Worried about it happening again, although I know it is rare.
Lilypad, I don't know the chances of that happening again but I just wanted to say how sorry I am...I know I have told you before but everytime I read your posts I feel so sorry that you went through that...I am sorry for your loss, I can't even imagine.....
I'm sorry to hear about your loss, lilypad. I've never had that happen to me but I have had a miscarriage and I know how hurtful it can be.
With my last pregnancy, I freaked out all the time because I was scared of having another miscarriage. Everything turned out to be fine and I gave birth to a beautiful boy. In the middle of pushing, though, the dr had to stop me 3 times!!! The umbilical cord had gone down the front of my son, through his legs, up his back and wrapped around his neck twice!!! He must have been doing gymnastics!! Lol.
I'm sure the chances of it happening again are slim to none. I wish you all the best :-)
Lilypad I just want to say sorry about my rudeness towards you and that I don't think before I speak and i'm also sorry I didnt realise that you have been through a though time and I though I was clever but when I was'nt and just being stupid welli hope we can put it behind us and lets get along
Hey its ok really not to worrie it was my big gob that got out off hand in the first place and hey may that was some thing I needed to hear as it was wrong of me to say that she would even cheat but hey thanks any way and I hope your wish to have a baby will happen soon
i wish you all the baby dust in the world as your a good person and you deserve it good things should happen to good people xxxxxxxxxxxxx
I just wanted to say that my heart goes out to you, I am ttc and on clomid right now so my emotions are a little nuts, but your story really broke my heart. Whenever you think you have it as bad as you could, someone else comes along and has gone through things you can't even imagine...Take care and good luck...You must be a very strong woman.
This is my first cycle on clomid, and we have only been trying for 4 months. However, the reason we are trying is because in july I had a laparoscopy that diagnosed me with stage 2 endometriosis, and I may not have long to conceive if I even can at all. So the clomid is just to help me get pregnant as fast as possible, and if I have more than one I will be happy and somehow find a way to pay for daycare! :)
i have a good friend who finally got preg on the 5th cycle on the highest dose of clomid, and she only has one healthy baby.
I have been through it too. I lost my baby girl, Shae Angel, in August of 2008. I was 23 weeks pregnant. I have 3 other girls, but it makes it no less painful. I walk around feeling like I'm missing one. I am.
That post you replied to was 4 years old. I went on to have a helathy baby girl who is now 2.5 years old and doing great. Then about a month and a half ago I had another misscariage at 2.5 months along. I am currently just working on losing weight b4 I try to get preggo again so I am going to wait a bit. Good luck to you and thanks for your reply. p.s. my daughter's name is Lily
Hi Lilypad, I read your old post regarding your baby's umbilical cord accident. My deepest sympathy to your angel-baby Joseph and to your other miscarried angel. However, I'm glad to hear that you now have a healthy little girl to give you the rewarding feeling of motherhood.
On 4/5/09, I lost my second child (my first born son). The umbilical cord had strangulated his neck at 34 weeks gestation. The accident happened a little over a month ago, and I still cry every day. However, I refuse to shed a tear in front of my soon-to-be three year old daughter. There are days when I feel like my grievance is progressing, but then there are days when I feel like I've started all over again. I so desperately want to have another child, but not anytime soon. When I think of all this heart breaking pain, I get a gut wrenching fear that I will definitely be too paranoid for the next pregnancy, which would be unhealthy. Reading your recent post gives me hope that maybe I can deliver a healthy child one day. I pray that I have the emotional courage to try again in the future.
Thank you for the previous and current posts. It really helps to vent with people who can relate on a personal level.
Im so sorry to hear that. It is so devastating to lose a pregnancy, and the further along you are, the more attached you get so it is very sad. Pregnancy can be scary after a miscarriage bc you think it will happen again. You just wait until you are ready and even then you will be a little scared. But every pregnancy is different. Each one is a new beginning , a fresh start. All you can do is take care of yourself the best you can and let nature and God take care of the rest.
My boyfriend and I just lost our first baby boy - Baby Sam - in a cord accident. I was 4 months, but he got tangled in the cord a couple of weeks ago. The thing that upsets me most is that I did not know he was gone...that I did not feel the energy missing from my belly. Everyday I would talk and sing to my baby and rub my belly - my boyfriend would kiss my tummy.
We are devastated...our entire time line was built around his arrival into our lives and now we feel we have no compass...no direction. He was perfect and though the delivery was hard, we had brilliant friends and nurses to help us through it in Santa Barbara.
We look everywhere for closure but the truth is, there will never be true closure because our baby will not rest in our arms, snowboard the mountains, or travel the world with us like we dreamed - but Sam holds a place in our heart forever, like he should.
Reading of your pain and journey was hard for us, but reading of your happiness years later with your little girl gives us hope that we will one day be fortunate to have the family we dream of. Thank you for sharing and my heart goes out to anyone else who is, or has suffered this tragedy.
Love, luck and beautiful families to all those who seek it...we will be hoping and praying for ours in the near future.
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It is so painful, people who haven't been thru it just don't know how deep it runs. All I can tell you is that with time, your heart will heal, although you will never forget your baby Sam. Don't give up on expanding your family, one day you will have the joy of another beautiful baby. **Hugs***
