Most of you already know I was 15 weeks pregnant. I went in for a routine doctors visit for my pregnancy today and they couldn’t find a heartbeat.   It looks like the the baby didn’t make it past 11 weeks.  It was really unexpected because everything seemed normal up to now.

Lee and I are feeling sad right now, since we were really excited to have another child.   No one ever expects something like this to happen.  We just feel so blessed that we have Carmen.  She is our gift from heavenly father, and we love her so much. She keeps us busy which I’m sure will help to keep our minds off it a little.

It is great to have such good family and friends around to support our family.



  1. Jana and Lee, I am thinking of you. Love you guys.

  3. I am so, so sorry, Jana and Lee. I’m sure you are just going through it right now and probably don’t want to talk, but if you ever decide you want to, know I’m here.

    Also, do you need anything? Meals? Babysitting? Let me know if anything comes to mind.

  4. Oh my gosh you guys. I am SO sorry. I feel weird commenting about this. I wish we lived closer so I could tell you in person. We will be praying for you.

  5. Jana & Lee, I know this might be hard to hear right now, but that baby wasn’t meant to be here right now. Heavenly Father has something else planned for you guys that will be wonderful. I can’t even imagine how I would even deal with something like this. I wish that I could be there right now for your Jana. Actually, if you needed me there tomorrow, I would do my best to be there. But it sounds like you have a great support system there and I know they will take care of you. Call me, if you want to talk, although I know you hate the phone. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Take Care.

  7. Jana and Lee. We are so sorry to hear about your loss. I never used to understand the sadness associated with losing a child early on in pregnancy until I was pregnant with my first. It would be heartbreaking at ANY time! You will be in our thoughts.

  8. My heart has been so tender for you both!! Mom called last night and told me. A seminary teacher of mine told me once while I was going through a major trial, “behind every door that closes, another one opens.” Every experience, whether good or bad, brings growth and experience. I can’t even imagine how bad it hurts right now, but you both will get through this. You are both SO incredible!! The sun will shine again, I promise. We love you tons. You are in our prayers.

  10. Wow Jana. I’m shocked. You sound like you are doing ok considering. I guess you just have to accept that thats how things were supposed to go. Try to keep a smile – your family is already so cute. We’re thinking of you.

  15. Thanks everyone…The outpouring of love our family has felt has really made a difference.

    Comment by Jana — November 8, 2007 @ 9:10 pm

  16. There are not words that can express the feeling of sorrow with losing a pregnancy. (especially with how sick you have been). I am so sorry that you are having to go through this. We are lucky that the gospel does give us a different (better) outlook on situations like these. We are thinking of you.
