Married to the love of my life in September 2010, we decided to try and add to our family in October 2011. By November 28, 2011 we had a positive test. Other than feeling very sick, everything seemed well. Our first ultrasound at the beginning of January 2012 went okay. I was disappointed to find that I wasn't as far along as I thought, but that was reasonable as my cycles are long. I didn't feel concern as the baby's heartbeat was a solid 149 bpm. We left the appointment with our first picture. While I was still a bit frustrated with the extra time added to the pregnancy, my husband carried the picture around with him every day. A few weeks later we had another ultrasound which was supposed to just be routine. At that time we found that time we found that the baby had died. We were told that the baby had likely been dead for several weeks and all the while my body had carried on as if nothing had changed, continuing to cause nausea and vomiting and all the other signs of pregnancy. The next day we were at the hospital but had to stay overnight before the D&C could be performed on February 1st. I feel I am still running in circles to try and figure out what is happening. I lost a lot of blood following the D&C and since then have had 2 separate instances of anemia. The anemia has seemed to reek havoc on my cycles causing at least one cycle with anovulation (before that cycle I was not trying to track ovulation). I am now aware that I just need to continue to taking iron supplements. I also started taking Vitex on July 6th in an effort to shorten my cycles. I only talk about my story with my husband and a very, very select group of people. It is liberating to find a safe group here. Thanks for caring.
