My name is Kristen and I'm 24 with two sons. We just had a loss on November 21st with our little angel. My water broke at 18 weeks 2 days and there was no stopping it as much as I wanted them too. We are back to trying again and I started taking folic acid.

My placenta was abrupting and the baby had heart problems and they basically told me that he wouldn't survive birth if he did make it to 24 weeks. After my water broke, they checked for the baby's heartbeat and there was none, I was devastated, but I kinda knew from the beginning it wasn't meant to me. When I first found out about being pregnant, I just didn't have a good feeling about it. I told everyone, I think I'm going to lose this baby before 20 weeks. But I think I got my hopes up because I was only 6 weeks away from my deadline of getting 24 weeks when the baby would be viable. All of my hormones are out of my system as of today, I got a negative hpt test, so now it's just a waiting game. We want to try again right away though. I had a natural miscarriage and there was nothing to stop it, or I would have. So, I'm going to take extra precaution this time and get everything right to finish off our family.

Welcome. I'm so sorry for your loss but know you'll get wonderful support from the lovely ladies here.

We lost our 3rd child in October, little Emma Faith was born silently on her EDD. I'm lurking on this thread at present as DH and I are waiting to try until the New Year. But like you I'm hoping to complete our family with a Happy Healthy Rainbow baby.
I am so sorry for your loss kristen. Take care of yourself.
