    I just got back from my first prenatal appointment. We were scheduled to have a sonagram then an appointment with the doctor.

    There was no heartbeat, then there was a very weak and erratic heartbeat. The baby's heartbeat should be about 143 beats per minute and my baby was only 43 beats per minute. I go back tomorrow morning to see if there if a heartbeat. If there is not, I'll have a d&c tomorrow. I've not had any problems prior to this doctor visit, but I've been very anxious and worried.

    I lost my first pregnancy on January 1rst when my son was stillborn at 20 weeks. I'm nine weeks pregnant with this little one.

    Only a miracle will keep this pregnancy viable, and yes, I am asking God for a miracle, but if it is not His will, I'm asking for strength to deal with this impending loss.

    Please pray for our baby and family.

    Prayers have already been sent this morning. I prayed for a miracle. There were no "buts" there. Just keep the Faith!

    I got a miracle, but not the one I prayed for last night. My miracle is that I was pregnant with a sweet innocent child. The miracle to keep that child alive was not granted. Physically, I am doing fine.

    Thank you for your prayers, and please pray that my heart heals soon.

    I am praying for you and hoping that your healing begins soon. Although you did not receive the miracle you were hoping for, you did get another one- you have a beautiful baby watching over you in heaven:)

    As you can imagine, the words you all have typed does not make the pain of losing our child go away, but they have given me much comfort and I truly appreciate the compassion you have shown me during this troubling time. Having other people believe as I do, that my babies are now truly angels in heaven, is a great comfort as well.

    I consider myself a mother even though my children are in heaven, and when it is time, my husband and I will try again for a healthy baby so we can have the joys and blessings of raising a child together.

    It's easier to type about this situation than to call people since I can cry and type at the same time, but not cry and talk at the same time. Most of my friends at school, old friends, and even some extended family members do not yet know since I couldn't bear to call and talk about the situation this morning, so having you all tell me you are praying for me and that you are sorry is...well, I can't think of words that express my gratitude. Thank you. I'm touched beyond words.

    Am praying for you too... I wish I had words to share with you right now... God is allowing it for a reason and something good will come out of it.

    God Bless

    My heart goes out to you. I hve experienced miscarriage and am still trying to have a baby. I know the pain that you are feeling. I too am trying to trust that God knows best and will give me a healthy baby when the time is right. I am praying for you.

    I'm so sorry to hear that the miracle we were praying for didn't happen. One of my friends had many miscarriages until she finally had 3 beautiful children!!! You, hubby & baby are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I couldn't help, but cry when I read your update!!!!

    May we here and God comfort you!!!

    This was not the outcome I imagined or prayed for, but it sounds as if you are on the road to healing with a good attitude and lots of support. I am so so sorry!!! So many cases similar to yours have turned out positive in the end, so I know God will deliver in his own time. One day, this will all become clear--the loss--the timing--the strength gained thru the pain of loss. In the midst of it, however, answers seem so ellusive. Prayers are going out to you as I cry and type! I am so so sorry. I imagine the sweet little angel in heaven looking down on you in your sadness, wanting to wipe your tears away and telling you she will always be your special little guardian angel.

    I had my post-op appointment this week. The doctor is testing me for lupus, and some other things I don't remember. I'm praying the results are negative. The doctor said he didn't think I had these things, but that we have just been unlucky. I'm hoping he is right.

    The doctor said we can try again after two cycles. Please pray that I don't have anything that will keep us from having a successful pregnancy.

    I don't have lupus. I'm not sure what else I was tested for, but the results were all negative. I'm ovulating today, so maybe things will happen!

    What wonderful news that all your tests were negative. Prayers are answered more often than we know. Keep strong in your faith in miracles - they happen every day. I will pray that there is one for you, too.
