My husband and I have been through many up's and down's in trying to start a family. On December 15, 2008, we got our first BFP - due August 24th, 2009. Unfortunately, I found out at 10 weeks that I had a blighted ovum, did not pass it naturally, so I had to have 2 D&C's in February, one scheduled and one emergency (since they did not get it all the first time). In not getting it all the first time, I was passing large blood clots, losing a lot of blood, and almost ended up in ICU. Very traumatic but we kept trying. On May 1st, 2009 we found out we were pregnant again! :D In the beginning of the pregnancy with my son, I started spotting again. We found out that I had a subchorionic hematoma, and was put on bedrest from 10-20 weeks, being told that they didn't know if my son would stick. He was scheduled for c-section Jan. 8, 2013, and came early (with no complications), and I had an emergency c-section on Dec. 28, 2009. e59bf6e224c896fe569b9f0a15e3d03a.png
