7th pregnancy loss Ryan's Mommy [35wks] Due February 24; 112 kids; 1 angel baby; Pennsylvania 374 posts
15th Feb '13

I've had 5 miscarriages then gave birth to the most precious baby boy Ryan Caleb who passed away at birth due to hydrops -- I have now just went through my 6th miscarriage. I just don't know what to think after so many losses. I just want hope that I will have my rainbow. I had my miracle and my rainbow and he is gone too. I'm just so devastated. Please share any expiring stories if you have been through several losses. Is there hope at this point :(

I'm so incredibly sorry mama. I haven't personally been through it, but one of my dearest friends has. She's had 14 miscarriages and 2 ectopic pregnancies. She has 3 beautiful children that are alive and well today :) She would have had 4, but she had twin daughters and one of them was murdered (the babysitter shook the little girl to death) the other twin lived. So don't lose hope.

Just wanted to say that I'm very sorry for all your losses. Are you seeing a fertility specialist?

We've had every test in the book done on my husband and myself... even our son. Everything comes back "fine". He was perfect in every way, but the hydrops did not let his lungs fully develop. They were developed to 21 weeks and he was born at 30 weeks.

I'm so sorry for your losses. I'm here if you ever need someone to talk with, just someone to listen, although I can't say I relate to your personal experience. <3 I'll happily add you to my daily prayer list, if you're OK with that.

Wow, I can't believe the baby sitter did that! That is heart breaking. I'm so glad after so many losses they had success!

It must be very hard to not have answers as to why this happens too. I was just thinking there might be some sort of intervention they could use to help sustain the pregnancy once you became pregnant considering all the miscarriages. I'm sure you have already discussed options with doctors anyway. Again, so sorry though. Be strong.

I'm so sorry, mama. I was really hoping that the spotting was harmless. I really hope you get your rainbow baby some day. Hugs. :(

Aside from fertility testing have you and your Dh has genetic testing done? I am soory to hear of all of your losses. But i am happy that you were able to find the ''blessing'' involved in giving birth to your son. Ever single second we get to spend w/our children ,whether its in the womb or in our arms is an amazing gift no matter how short or long it may be. I also will add you to my prayer list , if u dont mind.

:( Have you considered using a surrogate? Or adoption?



Good luck.

I don't have any clue if you believe in God, but thought I'd share these. Hopefully they'll provide some comfort.

"But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint." Isaiah
