After welcoming my daughter in 2004 she was the only child for 5 years. My husband and I decided she needed a sibling. We successfully got pregnant and then a few short weeks later our world was crushed. We had a miscarriage in the 3rd month. We wanted to try again. It had to happen, right? It happened so quickly with our 5-year-old and with the baby we just lost.
Well that didn’t happen. We tried for a baby for a year. Finally, it happened. I saw 2 pink lines.
Shortly after our world began to fall again. My body was trying to git rid of this baby to.
We soon found out that I am rH-. My body was literally killing the baby because it saw it as something bad.
After 4 months of hard work we got my body to accept the baby. My 2nd daughter was born 3 1/2 weeks early. She is a happy and healthy 2-year-old now. After such a hard long road from losing our 2nd pregnancy to almost losing our 3rd pregnancy. I am so incredibly happy with my family and love my girls more than anything else in this world.
This. Is my happy story.
