i am married to my high school sweetheart we have two beautiful children Jarrett whom is 6 about to be 7 in march and Elizabeth who just turned 4 in October. We have 3 baby angels one that just recently left us her name was Jillian she was born on December 28th 2011 and passed away January 6th 2012, due to heart complications. She is greatly missed and always thought about! If you want to know anything just ask.
I don't use BG anymore. When they updated the site, it deleted everything on my post about Tatiana, but part of her pregnancy updates.Find me on Facebook, Catrina Weeden
I have a NT scan on Monday to check for chromosomal abnormalities, anatomy scan at 20 weeks, and fetal echo to check the heart at 24 weeks.
Almost 12 weeks, and I'm a nervous wreck.
Howve you been?
My OB said to wait 2-3 cycles, and this month will be my third. My genetic testing was negative, and SO had his genetic testing today. We will have results in a week. Tatiana's heart defects were caused by DiGeorge Syndrome, and 10% of the cases are genetic. Have you talked to your OB about future pregnancies? We discussed the risks of it happening again, and what can be done to prevent it. I have to go to a high risk OB for ultrasounds and a fetal echo at 24 weeks. I'm hoping we will be able to TTC soon. SO goes back and worth on wanting to wait and not wanting to wait.
Two of my coworkers are pregnant, but they are having boys. Two of my other coworker had babies before I did, one in July and one in October, both girls. I was in a November group through BG on Facebook. My news feed is mostly pictures of babies that were born around the time she was. I can't delete them because how supportive they have been, even after her death. They sent me a necklace with her name and two angel wings.. These are women I've never met. It's hard sometimes though. I hear people complain about their children or say they "hope" they aren't pregnant.. when I want more than anything to get pregnant and have a second child.. not to replace, but so I can feel the happiness I felt when I had her. If that makes sense.
Sometimes this world s***s so damn bad. I have no idea why babies are taken away so soon. I am so sorry for your loss. Abigail was born Feb 1st. She was 4lbs 9oz at 37wks and 4days. She is breathing and eating on her own. Right now we are in the NICU. They are saying she might be able to go home with us later on this week. She is still so tiny. She has jaundice right now so it may not be until next week that we actually get to take her home. We are still praying for her. They said they may be able to do surgery at around 3months. So we are just holding on to every day with prayer and petition.
Tatiana would've been 12 weeks last Friday. I work in child care, and it's so hard, seeing babies that were born around the time she was or after, and watching them grow up :(
My daughter had truncus arteriosus (one main blood vessel instead of two), which caused pulmonary atresia, and a interrupted aortic arch. She was 7 days old.
What heart problems did your daughter have? :(
I just read the above comment. I am so terribly sorry for your loss. I know there are no words and no actions that could ever make you feel better about what has happened. I wish there was something I could say or do to help alleviate your pain. Please just know that you are not alone and I will always be praying for you. Lord be with you and your family in your time of need. God bless always!
Hello... I'm doing.. Just really anxious. I'm still pregnant with Abigail but my section is on Feb 10th. So it's pretty soon. I'm worried as all get out and just continuing to pray for the best. How are you and your baby? Did she get her surgery yet? I have been keeping you and your precious bundle in my thoughts and prayers as well.
