January 7, 2013 – Horrible lower left abdominal pain. Visit to Dr. revealed ruptured cyst.  First view of little peanut.  Measuring right on schedule, 5 weeks 6 days.  Peanut is doing good – mommy is feeling better.

January 21st – First Dr. appointment with ultra sound. No heartbeat – baby stopped growing.  Told I am going to miscarry.  Another devastating blow.  :’-(

January 25th – Ultrasound to confirm Mondays findings.  To our surprise we see a heartbeat.  Baby measuring 6w1d and heart rate is 93 bpm.  Measuring 2 weeks behind and heart rate is low.

January 28th – Ultrasound to double check baby’s progress. Baby measuring 6w2d and heart rate is 109 bpm.

February 7th – Follow up ultrasound.  No growth and no heartbeat.  D&C done.  10w2d

February 27th – Diagnosed with MTHF (Methylene TetraHydroFolate Reductase).  Told I should have never been able to carry a child without being on blood thinners.  Advised to see a hematologist to get put on blood thinners and medication if I wanted to carry a child to term.

April 2013 – Decided to no longer try for another child.  Our family will be a one child family.  We are blessed with one little miracle baby. You can read about that here.

    I’m so sorry it’s going rough for you. Fingers crossed that your next try is the one. Adding you to my blogroll as we’ll be trying for #2 soon (and our son is 3 months younger than your J).

    Hi there,
    I’m a new follower (goodness that sounds a bit cult-ish doesn’t it?). I’m also a new blogger lol. My blog is all about the journey of my wife and I as we TTC again after 2 miscarriages. We are currently in the two week wait, and I think it would be cool to keep in touch since you’ve had some hard times with MC too it seems. This time we can both get our third-time-lucky bebe’s!
