I've had two losses, both at about 7 weeks.


The first was a surprise pregnancy back in 2013. After what we went through to have our twins, DH and I were completely shocked to discover that I was pregnant! Initially, we were stressed out about the idea of having another baby; we had assumed that we weren't able to get pregnant on our own so we were caught off guard. By the time we had started to get excited, it was over.


Since that surprise, I have always felt like we were "meant" to have another one. We kept trying in the hopes that I would get pregnant again naturally, but it didn't happen. Finally, I convinced DH to do an FET. It was to be our "one last shot"; we would only do one procedure regardless of the outcome.


Our FET was in January. We got our BFP and were absolutely thrilled! This time there was no stress or doubt; this is what we wanted and hoped for. My betas were on the low side, but doubling. Still, I was uneasy about my lack of symptoms. My boobs were slightly sore, but I had absolutely no nausea and I was very nauseous with both of my previous pregnancies.


Despite my lack of symptoms, I never expected to hear the news at my 7 week ultrasound. There was no baby growing inside me, only an empty gestational sac. It felt like I had been punched in the stomach. We had assumed things would be fine, so DH was at work; I had gone to the appointment alone. It was devastating.


Now that it's over, I know it's time for me to move on. We have two healthy, amazing children and I am truly thankful for them. But there is a part of me that is so crushed and empty in knowing I will never have another baby. Will I ever get past this feeling? Will I ever truly feel as though our family is complete?

DH: perfect


2010: IVF success! (Twins born at 36 weeks)

2013: Surprise pregnancy (Lost at 7 weeks)

2015: FET (U/S at 7 weeks showed only an empty sac)


Our family of four is now complete. We are moving on.

Sorry for your loss..I have a similar background....and the thing is that YOU have to get used to knowing that your family is will take time ....cherish what you have and wasted time is spent on something you know will never happen....acknowledge it and grieve it and in time acceptance will happen....Good luck....

I am so sorry for your loss.. I had a miscarriage at 7 weeks in June and it hurt so much. I have said this before a loss is a loss no matter how far along you were it all hurts the same. I am still not over my loss and i still think about what could have been and where I would have been in my pregnancy today, but with all hardship it takes time to heal. I am pregnant again and I am terrified of another miscarriage and its funny because when I did my first fresh transfer a miscarriage never crossed my mind and now that's all I can think of... what if it's a miscarriage! I am happy that you were blessed with twins and i hope that you are blessed with another natural miracle baby! Xx

Two years ago today, I got the dreaded news that my beautiful baby girl had a brain defect. At 16 weeks I had to terminate my pregnancy. Still broken hearted and missing her everyday! Love you so much, baby girl!
