I feel compelled to share (child ment., pg. ment, m/c ment.)

Hello everyone! I have been lurking here for quite sometime and feel compelled to share my story and join your group.

DH (then DBF) and I found out in February 2006 that we were pregnant. Although we had been together for many years, it was definitely not something we were planning. However, we were both overjoyed. Everything was moving right along and when I went for my first OB visit at 10 weeks, doctor couldn't find the heartbeat, but he wasn't concerned because all my numbers came back fine and my uterus was measuring right on track. I started having some light cramping and light spotting. Something was just telling me that all wasn't right. I called the doc and they told me to go to the hospital. So in I went, still just light cramping and spotting. When I finally got back to the room, the heavy cramping and bleeding began and I knew that my baby was gone. I had an ultrasound when I was there and sure enough no heartbeat. I was in a state of shock and the doc told me I could try to have the m/c at home or have a d/c. Well, we decided to go home and the next day the pain was too intense and we went back for a d/c. The emotional pain of losing a baby was almost more than I could bear. I remember going out for the first time to the mall and we passed the children's section and I started crying and had to leave immediately. Slowly, I started to heal and the pain started to ebb away a little. DH and I got married in Sept of last year and my twin boys were born 11 weeks early in June. They were 2 lbs 6oz when they were born and had to fight to be here today. There are no twins in either of our families and there was no fertility involved. I just know that God or fate or whatever decided that, oops maybe we made a mistake in taking her baby...let's give her two. I am so blessed and my two boys will definitely know of their angel sibling. Thanks for listening.
