I will make this story short. Our second child was a miscarriage, or so the doctor said. At about two months along. The doctor preformed a DNC. A few months later, my wife was not losing weight. She went back to see the doctor, and she was still pregnant. He is 18 now. In 1996, my wife had a miscarriage, and again she gave birth to a surviving twin. In 1999, she had a tubule pregnancy, this of course required surgery. The doctor found a growth on the healthy tube, and removed it. This, of course, effectively sterilized her. What is so interesting is that the OB/GYN in Illinois who checker her out in 2000, said that his examination did not match the notes form the doctor who preformed the surgery in Texas. While we do have six children, this final act devastated my wife. It has take years to recover. We have been blessed. One son is in the Navy, the other is in college, and the rest are growing to be good people (at least I hope they are). Still, you never know what life is going to throw at you. Very few seem to understand the loss either.

When I was very young I found myself pregnent and unsure as to what to do. I never got a chance to even ask anyone for their opinion because a few days after being told by the doctor that I was pregnent I lost my beloved child. This was the first of three miscarrages that I went through. The other two being when I was 18 and when I was 19. I was engaged at this time and we were trying hard to start our family and future together. Many doctors told me after my third miscarrage that I would never have children. I came to accept this as fact but my fiancee just couldn't.
> > Four months after we broke up I found myself pregnent and since have had another pregnency. I have two beautiful children that I worry daily about because they are not supposed to be here.
