Mike Jones,

You sound like you and your wife would make amazing parents. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. May God bless both of you and in due time, you will have that child.

A good friend of mine and his wife had about 8-10 miscarriages. Test after test, and major fertility procedures, they found out that her white blood cells were attacking the fetus and killing the baby. They put her on a TON of meds and kept trying. She would get pregnant only to miscarry at week 8, 9, or 10.

Well, about 2 1/2 years ago, they decided to stop all meds including all the holistic crap she started taking in the middle of all of this.

3 weeks ago, they gave birth to their first child, a healthy baby boy. No one deserved a child more than them, especially after all they had gone through. She got pregnant after the doctors had lost all hope, and the pregnancy went perfectly. Perfectly after going so terribly wrong time and time again.

Things work out in the end. Regardless of how hard something may be, it is always possible if you believe.

Good luck to you Mike Jones. Your time will come.

I understand what you are going through. My wife had a similar situation with pre-eclampsia (think that's how you spell it??). It's a tough time. You'll get through it. We now have 2 beautiful, healthy girls. It will happen mate. Take care.

I know somewhat the shock you must have felt or at least something close to it. When we went in for our ultrasound on our youngest boy, we got quite a scare when something was not right. He had spinabifida. It was a tough time and a long 5 months before he was born. Fortunately, he has about the most minor case that can be had and only has a few minor medical issues.
My heart goes out to you and your wife. What you must be going through is much more difficult than what we did. God bless and RIP to the little soul.

Mike, my thoughts and prayers are with you and Jessica. I am so sorry for your loss. Be the strong one, give her a hug, and I know in my heart things will work out for you eventually.

Man that is hard to read. Like so many have already said my heart is breaking for you. Be strong for Jessica but don't be afraid to show her that you are hurting also.

You can try again when the time is right for you both and hopefully next time it will all go smoothly.
Put your best foot forward!

Sorry for you and your wife to have to go through this, as some one said earlier, in time it will happen. At times like this it may be hard to believe but things do happen for a reason. keep the faith.

Man, sorry for your loss. The world is a cruel and unusual place sometimes.

A woman my wife carpools with lost a 7 year old daughter yesterday. Sent her off on the school bus happy and healthy, by 10 AM or so she had some kind of seizure then an aneurysm and was gone by 1PM. Totally devastating to the family, you never can tell about these kind of things. We are at a loss for words on the subject.

Our Condolences. I had to leave work yesterday and go pick up my 7 year old from school, because she had a 102 Deg. fever and a STIFF NECK. Took her home and gave her some Motrin and fever came down, and the Stiff neck is better.
Yeah bottom line, kiss and hug them everyday.
