Wishing For A Rainbow Baby❤️

Hello, my name is Marissa. I am a mother to two beautiful little girls, but not in the normal sense of the word. My babies are in heaven. In January of 2016 I found out I was pregnant and I couldn't have been happier. Me and my fiancé had been trying to conceive and we're over joyed to finally see that we could indeed create life. Our joy was quickly stifled when I began to spot. I knew that I was having a miscarriage. I went to the Doctors Medical Centers Emergency room and they sent me home saying in a couple days I would pass my baby. Days passed and nothing happened. I finally returned to work and got through half the day when I started to feel extreme pain in my right side. I felt like I was dying. Something wasn't right. I returned to the ER except this time I went to memorial. I told them that I was told I would miscarry but I hadn't yet. I had been doing some research and discovered something called an ectopic pregnancy. It's where the baby is growing in your Fallopian tube. I explained that I believed this was happening to me after several grueling hours of agonizing pain while waiting in the waiting room. They sent me home and said the same thing as doctors medical center. I began to worry. My OBGYN at the time was at Golden Valley health centers. They were far from helpful. They never gave me a ultrasound, never validated my concerns, just continued to send me home desperately wanting answers to save my baby. It wasn't until March that they finally diagnosed me with what I had been feeling all along. My first ectopic pregnancy. I had to get a low dose of chemo called methotrexate to stop my baby from growing. We named her Elowyn and she was 13 weeks. We continued to try a couple months after that. In March of this year I found out I was pregnant again. Once again we were so excited, I didn't feel any of the horrible pains I felt before so I thought everything was going to be okay. I wanted to be prepared though so I called my old OBGYN to schedule an appointment. I told them I was a scared because of the previous pregnancy and they once again pushed away my concerns. They insisted there wasn't anything they could do. I knew that they could monitor my HCG to make sure it was rising but I didn't want to deal with the stress of arguing with them. A couple days later I started to spot. I was so worried but I tried to remain calm because I felt no pain. But sure enough the death wrenching pain arrived and to the ER I went. This time it took less then a week for me to be diagnosed with another ectopic. She was 7 weeks and we named her Jane. There is a different kind of pain that comes from loving a child you never got to hold or meet. It's a darkness that won't go away. I am now being told that I will have another ectopic unless I get a test called an HSG done. It is where they inject a dye into your uterus which will spill out into tubes to see the blockage, after that they will do an exploratory laparoscopy where they can go in and remove the blockage. I am being told this isn't covered by my insurance because it's not pregnancy related. I would argue that it is. I continue to have these ectopic pregnancies and the blockage is what is preventing the babies from getting to where they need to go. The cost for the HSG is 375 and the exploratory laparoscopy ranges from 1,000-5,000 not including doctors bill and any medication they put me on after. They say it takes a village to raise a child, well in my case it takes a village to have one. I have started a go fund me account to help me and my fiancé pay for a portion of both test and procedure. In 2 days we have raised over $600. I am reaching out to you to in hopes of maybe you being able to get the word out. If anything educate people on the signs and symptoms of ectopic pregnancies. We are praying for baby Smith 2018! If you can't donate please share, send positive vibes, love, support, and just understanding.

Sincerely,
Elowyn and Janes mommy
