    one month before my husband and I were going to move to my sister's farm in California. We'd already broken our lease and quit our jobs so there was no turning back. I had my first ultrasound at about 7 weeks, and we saw our twins. They were already dead, but I didn't believe...

    Born Into The Father's Arms.

    The past several years have just been an up and down roller coaster for me, I can't seem to find a calm point in my life. I had a miscarriage when I was 26, my fiance, who is now my husband was in the army at the time so I rarely got to see him during those times. The pregnancy...

    After our guests had left last night,

    and we picked up the things the children had strewn about, I asked for a hug. You held me for a moment, felt me tremble slightly, and in a rare moment of empathy you asked me what was wrong. I didn't collapse, I didn't let go completely, I simply said, "I miss our baby." And...

    Tuesday was my first ultrasound.

    I was 11 weeks pregnant. I was nervous and excited to see my little love on top on the monitor. I knew immediately there was something wrong because the technician was pressing very hard on my stomach to find the baby. Once she found it .. my heart dropped. The baby was soooooo...

    In March of 2012, I had the Essure procedure.

    For those that might not be aware, the Essure procedure is supposed to be a form of permanent birth control. Two coils are inserted into the fallopian tubes and triggers the body into forming scar tissue around those coils thus blocking contact between the ***** and egg. Usually...

    alone, in my fiancé's apartment with our three year old sleeping. It was at 3 in the morning. The fiancé at the time was in Wisconsin visiting his family. I called him and told him I was losing our baby, and bleeding a lot and he was asleep and kind of said "keep me posted". I...

    I went to the bedroom and woke up my husband and told him I was pretty sure I was having a miscarriage. He Googled and said it could be a lot of other things especially since this was the first trimester. I just let it go. I knew, I could feel it. I have had 3 other kids and I...

    and heartbreak. I was 18 years old and I was with a sweet boy (he WAS sweet at one point). One day, I felt very strange and I took a pregnancy test. It was quite exciting and scary to see two pink lines! I was pregnant! I had told my ex girlfriend about the pregnancy, along...

    I want to start by saying, I am not a woman. I can't know how a woman feels when she loses a child, nor do I claim to compare my pain to it. This is a story, from my point of view, from watching what she went through and having to carry on and help hold her up as well. In 2009...

    like around 6 weeks. But I still think about him. I'm sad that I lost him, and I still wish I could have given my daughter a sibling. He would be nine months old by now. I know it doesn't make sense, or doesn't seem possible, but I really do miss him, even though I never...
