As you might know, i am 17weeks and that my afp test came back high. I found out from the u/s today that the baby is only measuring 14weeks and that its kidneys are very small. The high afp showed that i had a placenta problem. There isnt enough blood going to the placenta and the baby is having to decide which organs should function. Only the brain and the heart are good. The placenta is "patchy" looking and disfigured (suppose to be oval shape) This condition is eariversable and will end in fetal demise. Dh and i decided before hand that if anything were wrong, we would go with an induction. Tomorrow i find out when the date will be. Next time we get pregnant I will be given baby aspirin and be monitered just as closely. We are going to wait 9months until we try agian (wedding is in 9months), as the doc said that it might be because of me getting pg a month after my m/c. *Just a note- I did have a subcrohnic hemotoma diganosed early and this happened to be related to the placenta problem--but this is rarely the case Thanks for all your support and advice, and i really have to say that im glad i did the IPS screening, because it showed earlier that the baby was having a problem. I think the hardest part is having to tell everyone, because i really thought all was well.

Hi Kira, I'm sorry to hear about your little baby. That is so sad. I have gone through an early mc and am currently 15 weeks along. I know that there is nothing anyone can say to make this any easier. Just know that you aren't alone. My heart goes out to you. I hope everything goes ok.

Oh Kira i am so sorry. I am so sad to hear what you are going through!! Good luck in the future and stop by and say hi every once in a while if its not too painful. My prayers are with you and your husband

Thank you for your replies. I thought about a second opinion right when she told me, but then i saw the u/s and the u/s video they took. the baby isnt getting any blood to any part of its body and the placenta looks soo sick and malformed. This doctor is in a practice with 4 others and they're all high risk. i saw 3 of them today and im confident in them.


Micky - July 10

Ok..really sorry to hear your story...My best wishes are with you for the future...

I am soo saddened by this news. I was crossing my fingers that everything would be fine today for you. There are no words that I could possibly say to make you feel better... or to put out how sorry I am. My prayers are with you and your fiancee, I hope with time all wounds will be mended. Your baby will never be forgotten.

Kira Lynn: I'm so sorry you and your fiance have to go through this. I agree with you totally that it's good you did the IPS --it prevents one from keeping up false hopes & in a situation such as yours it's good to be informed and the sooner the better. I know there are no words that will help you feel better. I'll say a prayer for you, your dh and your baby. Blessings!

Hi Kira, I'm so sorry to hear about your baby. I've been following your story about the bleeding and everything, and it breaks my heart to even try to imagine what you must be going through. I really hope you're doing as well as can be expected under the circ_mstances, and best wishes in everything.
