Our son was two and we were ready to add on to our family. I became pregnant after our first try and we were very excited. I was a little nervous about my “advanced age” as I was 36 going on 37, but otherwise I felt good.


I was 31 years old and happily married to a supportive husband. We were trying to conceive, and after 9 long months, I was finally pregnant. We were both very excited and looking forward to a new addition to the family.


I was pregnant with my second child and was so happy. In my mind I had no reason to believe there would be any problems, but I got a rude awakening at my 12 week ultrasound.


I'm the woman the politicians don't want you to think about. Stable marriage, decent education, stay at home mother to a five year old, 32 years old and one who desperately wanted more children.


I'm 26. In 2008 I had a child who was born at 30 weeks. I had many complications, my kidneys almost failed, and my daughter ended up dying. After spending several years drinking and wallowing, I got my life together, I went to college, got a job at Planed Parenthood and began my life again.
