After my son was born 12 years ago, I found out that I was pregnant.

After my son was born 12 years ago, I found out that I was pregnant. My 1st 2 pregnancies were successful with no complications. So when I found out that I was pregnant with my 3rd, I was ecstatic. My husband was not as happy, as our relationship had been very rocky. But after the 1st doctor's visit, he started to show happiness. This was my 7 wk appt. I was starting to show already. So I shared the news with family and friends. But at my very next appointment, my doctor gave me the news that no expecting mother wants to hear, "I'm sorry, there's no heartbeat ". I remember getting chills all over my body to the point that I was shaking. I could feel my heart pounding in my chest. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I was alone that day in the doctor's office. My husband was at work. So I then called him to tell him the news and he yelled in mourning like I've never heard him yell before and he cried and I cried. We wept. It hurt so bad. The doctor had determined that the baby stopped growing at 8 weeks and this was my 11th week appointment. I couldn't help but feel like I did something wrong for this to have happened. I did everything I could to stay healthy and it still was not enough.
