My first miscarriage was at 12 weeks but I had what they called a blighted ovum so the baby was no longer developing but the sack was. My second miscarriage was not so easy to explain. I had gone to my prenatal appointment at 14 weeks and I cannot remember if we heard baby's heartbeat then or not. Next time I went in at 18 weeks , no heartbeat. Just silence. Doctor said she wanted to do an ultrasound. Got in there and she was silent and then broke it to me. Pointed out that baby was there but no heartbeat. I was devastated for a long time. I could have let things go naturally to have him delivered but due to having five children at home and the busiest season at my husband's work, we opted to be induced and I delivered a dead baby. :( We did tests, they examined Matthew...could not find anything wrong. I couldn't understand it for a long time, I still don't but choose not to dwell on it because I can't change anything.
