My pregnancy was an easy one just like my first 2 children. No complications, no nausea, easy peasy! At my 16 week visit I was having a little pain that my doc waved off as normal round ligament pain, and though they had difficulty finding the heartbeat after pressing firmly (and painfully) the nurse was able to get it and no ultrasound was performed.
The weekend before my 19 week ultrasound in which we were finding out the gender I started spotting. I was so scared but after I contacted the doctor she wanted me to take it easy and just follow in the morning for my ultrasound. I was never more relieved than when we got the ultrasound and everything looked perfect. The nurse did a few scans and left the room to get the doctor to give us the big news...only the news wasn't the gender as we expected. We were told there was no heartbeat and the baby was measuring at 16 weeks, not 19. The next day I had to deliver and after 13 hours (and on my birthday) this tiny little angel was lying so peacefully swaddled in a blanket.
