Miscarriages, Still-Births, and Premature-Births

 

1.     EBWashington:

a.  I am so upset. I was so excited to be pregnant after trying for a year. As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I joined this birth club and I was due June 25th. We have two healthy boys with no history of miscarriage. Everything was going great. Last Monday, I got the H1N1 vaccine thimerosal reduced (mercury reduced for pregnant women). On Tuesday morning, I started cramping and on Wednesday I started bleeding heavily. My hcg was 50 on Wednesday and I was almost 6 weeks along so it was low. They still thought that I might be pregnant but on Friday my hcg was down to 22. I am an emotional wreck. I feel like I had a healthy baby and I caused this by getting the H1N1 vaccine. My doctors pushed it. I researched online and there have been many miscarriages after the H1N1 vaccine but they haven't been reported since it is hard to say what caused the miscarriages. I hope that I did not cause this. I wish everyone the best. 

[Note: ∆Tdays < 5 days after shot at 5+ weeks in pregnancy; shot was a reduced-Thimerosal H1N1 vaccine but no lot no., or manufacturer was given.  For a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) shot, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 30,000 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 600,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.]

 

2.     Tayla08:

a.  I don't have an answer for you, but a friend of a friend just had a miscarriage 2-3 days after getting the shot. She was 7weeks. She had no previous history of m/c... No one can answer if they're related...it hasn't been out long enough and there haven't been any studies done on pregnant women. I will tell you, that it has made up my mind on getting it...I won't and I'm not going to get it for my DD either. My daughter and I both had H1N1 last week, and although it truly sucks...I think I'll take my chances. One doctor will tell you to get it and the next will tell you not too...you have to do what's in your heart.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 3 days at “7” weeks in pregnancy; shot not identified; w/o shot information, unable to calculate Hg exposure in the fetus.  However, even if the shot was a “reduced Thimerosal” shot, estimated Hg exposure to the fetus was > 15,000 times the EPA RfD and and > 340,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

 

3.     90707:

a. My heart goes out to you as i recently miscarried as well and was due in June. I had a healthy heart beat at 6wks. then at 7.5 wks my son got the H1N1 mist vaccine which has live vaccine in it. the nurse said to be careful b/c it could technically spread if he rubbed his nose and touched a surface etc. the next night i miscarried and 5 days later was diagnosed with H1N1. I work from home, kids are home, hadn't been anywhere during that time. so the chances that it is all related are very high. The flu mist vaccine warns for immunocompromised patients (which includes prego) to stay away from recipients of the flu mist for 21 days.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 2 days at 7.5+ weeks in pregnancy; son was given live H1N1 vaccine; “no Hg exposure”; indirect live-virus exposure. Death of fetus possibly by vaccine-strain infection from son’s live-virus H1N1 vaccination.]

4.     Jo:

a. I got the flu vaccine (regular not H1N1) at 8 weeks pregnant. Three days later I miscarried. I am not going to get the H1N1

[Note: ∆Tdays = 3 days at 8 weeks in pregnancy; shot was seasonal influenza; w/o more information cannot calculate Hg exposure.  However, even if the shot was a “reduced Thimerosal” shot, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 7,000 times the EPA RfD and > 170,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

 

5.     Regrets:

a. I got both vaccines on Thursday. I was 9 weeks pregnant. I miscarried on Sunday. I was told by several doctors to get these vaccines. Now I wish I followed my gut feeling and not get them at ALL!

[Note: ∆Tdays < 3 days after both seasonal and H1N1 shots at “9” weeks in pregnancy; w/o more information cannot calculate mercury exposure.  However, if both of the shots were “reduced Thimerosal” shots, fetus’ Hg exposure was > 7,500 times the EPA RfD and > 170,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If both were Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25.  If one was preserved and the other was a reduced-Thimerosal dose, then the preceding values should be multiplied by 13.]

 

6.     {anonymous}:

a. I work in a hospital like setting and was told ‘the benefits outweigh the risks” 1am I got the vaccine, 3am I started bleeding and craming, 3pm miscarried. you decide!

[Note: ∆Tdays < 1 days after “unstated” shot at “unstated” weeks in pregnancy; w/o more information cannot estimate even the fetus’ minimum mercury exposure.]

 

7.     Sue:

a. I had the H1N1 vaccination and 24 hours later had a miscarriage.

[Note: ∆Tdays = 1 days after H1N1 shot at “unstated” weeks in pregnancy; w/o more information cannot estimate even the fetus’ minimum mercury exposure.]

 

8.     Linda Hill:

a. My daughter in law was 10 weeks pregnant and had the H1N1 vaccine on Friday that night she miscarried.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 1 days after H1N1 shot at “10” weeks in pregnancy; w/o more information unable to calculate the fetus’ Hg exposure in the fetus.  However, if the shot was a “reduced Thimerosal” shot, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 1,800 times the EPA RfD and > 42,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding numbers should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

 

9.     SoSorry:

a. I was so ready to get the H1N1 vaccine last week and they were only giving them to pregnant women. I was 6 weeks along and got it and the next day I started cramping and miscarried. I already had two healthy pregnancies and never miscarried or had any problems. My doctors think I am crazy to think it was the H1N1 but if no one looks into this than other women will not know. I am so sorry that I got it.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 2 days after H1N1 shot at “10” weeks in pregnancy; w/o more information unable to calculate fetus’ Hg exposure.  However, if the shot was a “reduced Thimerosal” shot, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 1,800 times the EPA RfD and > 42,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding numbers should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

 

10.   Connie:   Subsequently Reported to VAERS

a. I also received the H1N1 vaccination on October 22nd, 2009 and went into labor on October 25th, at 16 weeks pregnant and we just heard the heartbeat and everything was fine with my pregnancy on October 16th, 2009, then on October 28th my water broke then on October 29th, I delivered a stillborn baby boy, and no one can tell me why…Everyone wants to say it did not come from the shot but I believe it did. My baby was growing at the correct pace and everyone wants to brush off the vaccination. I say if you have the vaccination and suffer a miscarriage if they are able to perform an autopsy have it done.

b. I also agree something needs to be done and looked more into with this vaccination because most women are being advised it’s just something that happens, but I also had two healthy children normal pregnancies and when I received this vaccination with my third pregnancy, my baby is gone.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 6 days after H1N1 shot at “15+” weeks in pregnancy; w/o more information cannot calculate the fetus’ mercury exposure.  However, if the shot was a “reduced Thimerosal” shot, the fetus’ Hg exposure to the fetus was > 70 times the EPA RfD; if Thimerosal-preserved, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 1,800 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 4000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.]

 

11.   Sioux falls, South dakota:

a. I received the H1N1 vaccine on October 16th and started experiencing cramping on the 22nd. I was nearly 17 weeks pregnant and gave birth to a stillborn baby boy on the 23rd. Like many of the other women here, the first thing I suspected was the H1N1 vaccine. I immediately asked a nurse at the hospital if that would have anything to do with it. Without hesitation, she told me “absolutely not.” I had reservations about getting the vaccine, but followed the advice of my long trusted family doctor. In a follow up appointment with my doctor 3 days after I lost my baby, I asked him if the vaccine would have had any adverse effects on my baby. He also said that it was not possible. I don’t believe that my doctor was necessarily lying to me, he was simply following the accepted practices and opinions of his field. I do, however, believe that as a nation, we are being lied to. This vaccine is NOT safe during pregnancy. There has not been enough testing done to determine this and there are far too many “coincidences” for this to be anything but a result of a vaccine that was hastily pushed into production and distribution in an effort to stop widespread panic. I have read so many stories in defense of the vaccine that will talk about how common miscarriages are, but I would challenge you to ask ANY health care professional how common second trimester miscarriages are. My baby was doing perfect developmentally and I had felt him move earlier that day. My heart goes out to all of you out there who have had to go through the same heartache and loss that I have had in the last couple of weeks. There is no reason that any woman or family should have to go through this. Get the word out to all of the pregnant women that you know. I know that if I had heard that women had been losing their babies shortly after they received the vaccine, I would have followed my gut and not gotten it myself. Maybe then Wyatt would have had a chance at life.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 7 days after shot at “nearly 17” weeks in pregnancy; even if the shot was a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) H1N1 shot; fetus’ Hg exposure > 50 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 1,200 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study – if Thimerosal-preserved, fetus’ Hg exposure was > 1,250 times the EPA RfD for developing children > 28,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child.]

 

12.   Marina Rossi:

a. I recently got the H1N1 vaccine and miscarried 3 days later. I thought it could have been the vaccine but didnt ask. After finding this site I believe it was the vaccine. Sorry to everyone else out there who has just experienced a miscarriage.

[Note: ∆Tdays “3” days after “undifferentiated” H1N1 shot at “unstated” weeks in pregnancy; w/o more information cannot estimate mercury exposure.]

 

13.   Kathy-SD:

a. I’m from a town of 2000 in SD, there are several women pregnant and we are all due within a few weeks of each other. Four of us got the H1N1 vaccine 2 weeks ago and one by one each of us started to have preterm contractions. We are all due in Nov and Dec so we are further along than most of the people that lost their babies. There is no way you can tell us that our preterm labor was not caused by the H1N1 vaccine. It may look like a “fluke” to some people when these women are scattered all over the country but we are talking about 4 of us in our small community. My heart goes out to all of you that lost your babies.

[Note: Without specific information on the outcomes cannot even estimate fetus’ minimum exposure level.]

 

14.   Ashley:

a. I’m not sure but not only myself, i know someone that within 4 days of getting the shot we both miscarried, I was only 6 weeks and she was 4 months along, not sure if the shot caused it and cant find any other information but i am a little concerned about this coincidence.

[Notes: Cannot calculate the exposure in either instance because the nature of the vaccine (H1N1 or seasonal) was not identified nor was its mercury level revealed (preserved [multidose] or reduced [trace]). However, if the shot were a “reduced Thimerosal” shot: 1. At “6 weeks”, the Hg exposure to the fetus could be > 30,000 times the EPA RfD and 2: At “4 months” (about 16.8 weeks, the Hg exposure to the fetus could still be > 50 times the EPA RfD for mercury.]

 

15.   Time Machine:

a. I got a flu shot in pregnancy, developed incredibly strange symptoms immediately (numb hands, feet and mouth, heart palpitations, sudden weakness in my legs, a bright red face), began bleeding and miscarried by 11 weeks. I had no idea there was mercury in most flu shots but once I found out after the fact, I was assured that I’d had the “mercury free” form. As it turned out, the shot wasn’t completely mercury free and, according to the EPA website, it still had 5,000 times the limit for mercury in drinking water– not to mention a list of other toxins (MSG, formaldehyde, etc.).

b. I’d had no idea the shots were so dirty. I guess I’d been under the impression they were something like sterile water and a dead virus, that’s it.

c. The strange symptoms– which I’d been told were “just pregnancy” lasted six months. No one could figure out what was wrong with me, why I couldn’t make stairs, why I felt like I’d been shot with novocaine. I learned later from a book by Jane Hightower that these were all symptoms of mercury exposure. I guess I’m one of those susceptible people. No one in my family is getting the H1N1– no one even gets regular flu shots anymore, we all read labels.

[Note: ∆Tdays ? days after shot but mother’s reactions to the shot was immediate and significant and she subsequently miscarried “by 11” weeks in pregnancy; shot was a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) flu shot – possibly the seasonal one based on the narrative; the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 1,800 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 40,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  Mother’s adverse effects “lasted six months.]

 

16.   AlinafromOz:

a. I had the normal Flu shot, and i had a miscarriage at 8weeks… they told me it wasn't related pfftt yeah right and now no way in hell I would get a barely tested H1N1 vaccine.

[Note: ∆Tdays ? days after shot at “8 weeks” in pregnancy; shot was unspecified type of seasonal (“normal”) flu shot.  Even if it was a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) shot, fetus’ Hg exposure was > 7,000 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 160,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding numbers should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

 

17.   Kayte:

a. My husband’s pregnant coworker (5 months along) called her doctor on the day they were giving the regular flu shots at work. He said she should get it. She did, and lost her baby the next week. This enrages and sickens me that the medical industry is pushing these shots on pregnant women and children, especially the new, little-tested, experimental H1N1 vaccine!

[Note: ∆Tdays < 7 days after shot at 21 weeks (“(5 months along)”) in pregnancy; shot was a “regular flu” shot of unspecified type.  Even if it were a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) shot, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 20 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 4500 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study. If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding numbers should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

 

18.   Kevin:

a. I work with someone who was 4 months pregnant. Her husband got swine flu, so both she and her son got the vaccine “just to be safe.” A week later, she had a miscarriage. Any supposed benefits from the vaccine are clearly outweighed by the tremendous risks.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 7 days after shot at 16.8 weeks (“4 months”) in pregnancy; shot was H1N1 but type was not specified.  Even if she got the reduced-Hg (1 mcg), fetus’ Hg exposure > 50 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 1,200 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding numbers should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

 

More from different sites:

 

19.   *Alicia:

a. I received the H1N1 vaccine on October 29th and I was 14 weeks and 1 day pregnant. On November 11th my water broke. I was 16 weeks pregnant. Up until that point I was having a healthy normal pregnancy without any symptoms until November 8th when I started having mild cramps off and on. This was my first pregnancy and my doctor said that this was normal. I delivered a still born on November 12th and I really do believe that the vaccine had something to do with it. I am not sure if I will ever be able to forgive myself for getting this vaccine.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 13 days after shot at “14 weeks and 1 day” in pregnancy; from the narrative, the shot appears to be from a Sanofi multi-dose H1N1 vaccine, but its manufacturer and other information are absent.  If that was the case, then fetus’ Hg exposure was > 3,700 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 75,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study for a Thimerosal-preserved H1N1 shot.]

b. My doctors office actually gave me a vaccination card with all the information on it. The Lot number is UP010AA and the manufacturer is Sanofi Pasteur. It does not say whether it was a multidose or singledose but the card does say 1st dose with the return for a second dose section blank.  There is a spot on the card for 2nd dose information but it is blank. I will call the office and find out more.

c. The original doctor did not have privileges at the hospital that I went to that night so I got a new doctor that was really amazing. He did not know that cause of my water breaking but I will ask him at my checkup if he thought the vaccine could have caused it. I’d had no idea the shots were so dirty. I guess I’d been under the impression they were something like sterile water and a dead virus, that’s it.

The strange symptoms– which I’d been told were “just pregnancy” lasted six months. No one could figure out what was wrong with me, why I couldn’t make stairs, why I felt like I’d been shot with novocaine. I learned later from a book by Jane Hightower that these were all symptoms of mercury exposure. I guess I’m one of those susceptible people. No one in my family is getting the H1N1– no one even gets regular flu shots anymore, we all read labels.

20.   (108) c at 25 weeks says:

a. I just had my vaccine and I am 25 weeks. The nurse said that because I am “over 20 weeks I will be safe and so will my baby”. sat me down read the symptoms I may have after recieving the shot. They repeatidly told me thorughout the service “this shot is not safe if under 20 weeks”

[Note: Report is incomplete and only states where the mother was in pregnancy and that she just had a “vaccine” at 25 weeks but does not state any adverse outcomes though the tone implies at least concern for such.  Unable to estimate her developing child’s exposure.  However, even if she received a reduced-mercury flu shot, (1 mcg of Hg); the baby’s Hg exposure could be > 11 times EPA RfD for developing children and > 250 times NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding numbers should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

Still thinking about getting a flu shot?

This is a heart breaking story from a friend of mine.....

Yes, tomorrow I will be protesting (with the consent of the mother who I'm still waiting to hear back from) in memory of Wyatt James Ihnen.

The mother who received the vaccine is my best friend's sister-in-law. I am extremely close to the family.

She went in to get the H1N1 shot and that same night started experiencing cramps and the baby started kicking more than usual. She didn't think anything of it at first, just thought that she was getting sick or something, but the next morning she still had cramps so she went to the hospital and Wyatt was stillborn (natural birth!). Wyatt was 17 weeks old and 7 inches long. The mother and child were healthy with no complications prior to the shot.

She and the father are having an extremely hard time with the death of their son. She feels like by baby Wyatt kicking he was trying to tell mommy," Help me!" That thought haunts her...

The family performed a funeral and everything.

a. I was vaccinated on Friday and on Tuesday my first trimester screening ultrasound showed that my baby did not have a heart beat. I was 12 weeks along and the baby measured 12 weeks so it must have happened after the vaccination (when I was 11 weeks). I doubt that they will ever draw any conclusions about the cause of my baby’s death but it is quite uncommon to have a miscarriage after 12 weeks and if I could make the decision again, I would have played it safe (although that’s what I thought I was doing) and NOT have had the shot.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 4 days after shot at “12” weeks in pregnancy; nature and type of flu shot was not specific so unable to calculate Hg exposure in the fetus – however, even if the shot was a “reduced Thimerosal” shot, the fetus’ Hg exposure (from <1 mcg Hg injected) was > 500 times the EPA RfD and > 12,000 times NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding numbers should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

a. My younger brother was so sick after one of his sets of shots at 4 months, he almost died. My son was a beautiful, normally developing 4 month old…until his shots. We noticed a change on almost a daily basis. He is severely autistic and he was diagnosed at 12 months. I have 6 children, miscarried one time only…12 hours after my flu shot. Coincidence? Maybe. But I feel lied to by the medical field. I no longer have my children get vaccines for silly things. It is not worth the risks…I’ll take my chances with the flu. I also want to say how sorry I am for all of your losses. My heart breaks at the tragedy I read here. My thoughts are with you all.

a. I live in Toronto, Canada and was 4 1/2 wks pregnant when I took the non-adjuvanated vaccine offered to pregnant women here on Tues Nov 10. On Wednesday I started spotting and on Thursday I started bleeding, and it hasn’t stopped. I know in my heart that the vaccine had to do with my loss and I regret getting the shot. I have had two full term pregnancies with no complications so I was shocked to go through this horrible experience. I am interested to know if anyone else in Canada is going through the same.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 3 days after shot at “4 1/2” weeks in pregnancy; shot was non-adjuvanted Canadian flu vaccine and probably Thimrosal-preserved; even if it was a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) shot, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 150,000 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 3,400,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

a.  READ BEFORE YOU TRY!!!

b. I was 13 weeks pregnant and had the H1N1 vaccine on October 26th and miscarried early morning of October 29th. To those of you who believe that you are doing the right thing by getting the vaccine you need to read this. It is the link from the Novartis (manufacturer of the H1N1 vaccine) website. I just read it tonight. I filed the report with Vaers and I’m also applying for compensation from this vaccine. I have had a horrible and horrific experience. I not only lost my baby but almost lost my own life. Here is the link to the website. http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM182242.pdf (link opens in new window. Please disable popup blockers)
 and here’s what it says under pregnancy “8.1 Pregnancy

Pregnancy Category C: Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine or FLUVIRIN. It is also not known whether Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine or FLUVIRIN can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.” It is only cleared for children over the age of 4 years and a fetus is not over the age of 4 years. I can’t warn you enough to please not take this vaccine. If you are healthy then please do everything you can not to take this vaccine. It causes more problems than just losing your baby. My other two children and my husband almost lost me and I’m still not out of the woods yet.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 3 days after shot at “13” weeks in pregnancy; shot was H1N1 but Thimerosal-level not specified; even if it was a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) H1N1 shot, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 300 times EPA RfD for developing children and > 7,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

a. I received the seasonal flu shot last October, 2008 while pregnant after being guilt-tripped by my midwife…I now have severe rheumatoid arthritis and my son was born with inexplicable pneumonia. I have filed a vaccine injury claim. I HD one other flu shot…I had never been so sick in my life! I swore I would never have another. I would much rather have risked the flu. I am now screwed for life. All I can do is hope to God that only I am sick and that my son has no other negative effects. Those vaccines are loaded with crap! If Thwy were soil-they would tent it and call it a Superfund site. Hideous. Demand2Know.

I feel blessed to have my son near me. I am so truly sorry that so many of you experienced such horrific loss.

[Note: Because no gestational dates were provided for either the seasonal flu shot, unable to calculate the minimum Hg exposure in the fetus.]

a. I’m living in Portugal and just yesterday there was news about how a woman here miscarried at 34 weeks 3 days after the H1N1 vaccine. The doctors immediately said there is no link and that miscarriages happen everyday. Miscarriages at 34 weeks do NOT happen everyday. They said if there was a connection it would be the first in the world – but it is obviously not the first.

[Note: ∆Tdays = “3 days” after “unidentified” H1N1 vaccine shot at “34” weeks in pregnancy; w/o more information unable to calculate Hg exposure in the fetus – however, even if the shot was a “reduced Thimerosal” shot (ca. 1 microgram of Hg injected), the fetus’ Hg exposure would still be > 4 times the EPA RfD and > 90 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25 or > 100 times the EPA RfD and > 2,200 times the NOAEL.]

a. I had an ultrasound at 14 weeks on Oct 29th 2009 reporting all was well with myself and the baby. On that same day I received both the flu shot and the H1N1 shot. Two weeks later I went for a routine check up where the doctor could not find the heartbeat. I had another ultrasound showing no heartbeat or activity. After reveiwing the scan my OB said the baby died 12 days prior which would have been two days after the shot was administered. On Friday the 13th 2009 I had a DNC. I asked my doctor if that shot could’ve played a role in this “missed miscarriage”. He said absolutely not. I find it hard to believe that all of these women have had coincidental miscarriages just days or even hours after the vaccine was given. Further I fear that if we try again, given that I have the vaccine in my system still, it may happen again. There is NO research for that either!!!! Please everyone keep sharing your stories. My heart and paryers go out to all of you mourning the loss of your children. God bless.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 3 days after shot at “14 weeks” in pregnancy; received both the seasonal and the H1N1 flu shots; the manufacturer, lot number, and preservative status of the vaccines used were not provided.  If both vaccines were reduced-Hg vaccines, about 2 mcg of mercury (Hg) would have been injected.  If Thimerosal-reduced, then the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 450 times EPA RfD for developing children and > 10,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If the vaccines were both Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25. If one of the vaccines was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury and the other was a reduced-mercury shot, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 13.]

a. I was nearly 7 months pregnant with twins (a boy and a girl) when I was essentially guilt-tripped by my OB/GYN into getting a flu shot. My pregnancy was absolutely perfect up until that point and both babies were thriving. Within hours after that flu shot, I lost my boy and my girl went into fetal distress. My doctor reported this to VAERS and he was utterly horrified. My daughter did survive, but at what price? She is brain damaged and severely autistic. I had her baby teeth analyzed (since they develop in utero), and they contained extremely high levels of mercury. That flu shot contained the maximum dose of mercury, and it was given to pregnant women! I wish I’d known then what I know now. And mercury is just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many toxic ingredients in these shots.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 1 day after a Thimerosal-preserved flu shot (H1N1) at 29 weeks (“7 months) in pregnancy had twins (boy and girl) with normal pregnancy up until flu shot; the boy child died, and the girl child was delivered in fetal distress, and was brain damaged with high levels of mercury in her teeth.  {Obvious validation of the greater sensitivity of male children to being mercury poisoned.}  Based on the information provided and presuming equal distribution of the mercury exposure to the 2 developing children in utero and similar weights, each child was potentially exposed to the equivalent of 12.5 micrograms of mercury.  For 29 weeks gestation, the nominal mercury exposure in each child was > 110 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 2,500 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.]

I was 5 weeks pregnant when my doctor suggested I get the H1N1 vaccine. I received the shot on a Thursday and was very sore and achy on Friday. I miscarried my baby on Sunday, just 3 days after receiving the shot. This was my first pregnancy and I thought I was doing the best thing for myself and my baby by getting the shot. I will not make another mistake like this again.

 

I discovered I was pregnant in early November.  My husband and I were so excited.   This was my first pregnancy.   We took 4 home pregnancy tests over the course of 5 days and all came back positive.

 

Soon after I found out I was having a baby,  I found a doctor, but they didn't want to meet with me until I was at least 10 weeks along.   Over the phone they recommended that I get the H1N1 vaccination.  They didn't suggest that I wait until I was further along and they didn't give me any information about side affects or risks.   Based on the news and warnings that pregnant woman should get vaccinated, I thought I was doing the right thing. 

 

The days before getting the shot, my pregnancy was fine.  I felt great and was experiencing all the usual symptoms of pregnancy: frequent urination, sore breasts, pinching/stretching feelings in my lower abdomen, etc.  At nearly 6 weeks along, on Thursday November 19, 2009 I received the H1N1 vaccination shot.   The nurse who administered the shot said that I would experience a sore arm and possibly a slightly stiff neck. 

 

I received the shot at 11:00 am.  The evening that I got the shot I started experiencing a slight headache and the muscles around my knees started to hurt.  When I woke up Friday morning my entire body was aching and sore and my knees were in much more pain.   I also started to notice that the pinching feelings in my abdomen were fewer and further between.    That night I went to bed with an aching headache and sore body. 

 

Saturday morning I woke up and the aches in my body had subsided but my headache was lingering.   Thought the day I noticed that the pinching in my abdomen had gone away and my breasts were less tender than they were the day before.  I wasn't completely concerned because I was so early in my pregnancy and I wasn't experiencing any cramps or bleeding.  Since this was my first pregnancy every day was a new experience, so I didn't know what to expect each day.

 

Sunday morning I woke up and used the restroom.  Immediately I started bleeding heavily.  I was scared and immediately called to my husband and he said he was taking me to the ER.   I knew at that moment that I was having a miscarriage.  

 

At the ER, they did a urine test, which came back negative.  They immediately did blood work and found that my levels were at a low 17.   Being 6 weeks along they should have been much much higher.   They said my levels probably started dropping within 2 to 3 days before I got to the ER (which is the time I got the vaccine).  After the blood work, I had a pelvic exam which showed my cervix to be slightly open, and the doctor saw a significant amount of bleeding.   Next I had an internal and external ultrasound and they determined that they couldn't see any sac in my uterus, which led them to believe that I passed most fetal tissue during the bleeding.  As the bleeding increased after each test,  I started getting heavy cramps and pain in my lower stomach.

 

I am a grown 29 year old woman and felt beat up after receiving the shot..   How could my growing fetus be strong enough to handle the side affects?  I do feel that my miscarriage was a direct result of the H1N1 vaccination.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 3 days after shot at “nearly 6 weeks” in pregnancy; shot was H1N1 shot but mercury level not specified.  However, based on the adverse symptoms experienced by the mother, the vaccine may have been a Thimerosal-preserved shot.  If the shot was reduced-Hg (1 mcg), the fetus’ exposure was > 30,000 times EPA RfD for developing children and > 650,000 times NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study. If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

 

32. Susan, Atlanta, Georgia   REPORTED TO VAERS

I was 17 weeks, and had a normal nuchal fold US and genetics screening because I am 35 years old. This was my 4th pregnancy, and had 3 previous easy pregnancies and uneventful deliveries. I am an RN, and my husband a physician, and we were convinced that taking the vaccine was the right thing to do, and scared to death of contracting the flu and possibly losing the baby.

I was vaccinated on a Friday and within a week went for my check up and there was no heart beat! I was devastated, and had to have a D&E (more extensive than a D&C) because I was in my second trimester.  I didn't have the option to deliver because I had 2 previous c-sections, and had not had a vaginal delivery since my first, and was a big bleeding risk. I went to sleep with a big baby bump, and woke up with an empty wound, and no baby to cradle in my arms.

That is when I began to investigate the vaccine. I took the Sanofi vaccine at the GA health department. I will get the lot number for you, I have it. My husband is so irate as well and we discussed it with our OB. She is actually reporting it herself to VAERS and has discussed it with the practice. She said "yes it is a possibility". Our concerns did not fall to deaf ears, however, that doesn't satisfy my need to get the word out! So many mothers have written to the blogs thinking we are trying to blame someone, or we are just upset. but lets remember Thalidomide! No one knew truly the sequelae of the drug until the babies were born. What will become of these babies whose mothers received the vaccine while in utero during these past months?

Please let me know how I can help to voice our concerns. We must stand united to fight this, and to make others aware of the dangers that this vaccine poses.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 7 days after shot at “17” weeks in pregnancy; the shot was an unspecified Sanofi flu vaccine, probably the H1N1 but its Thimerosal level was not specified even though it most likely was Thimerosal-preserved and not the “no Thimerosal” formulation.  If it was Thimerosal preserved, then the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 1,300 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 30,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding numbers should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

I went to the doctor on October 27th and was checked. I was told that the baby and I were doing just fine. Heartbeat of 160 bpm and moving around just fine. We both got a clean bill of health. I was given the H1N1 vaccine at the advice of my doctor and felt pushed into getting it because I am a substitute school teacher and our county has decided to administer the vaccine to the students at school. They are offered both the live vaccine and the shot. I was told that if I were to get the virus it would be far worse than getting the shot. Two days (October 29) later my water broke and I miscarried my baby at 13 weeks of pregnancy. I also almost bled to death. The doctor said I lost buckets of blood before she was able to get me into surgery and stop the bleeding. My hemoglobin is still only 11 two weeks later and I've been told that if it doesn't increase that I may have to have a transfusion. I'm also having other medical problems. Dizziness, rapid heart beat, slurred speech, migraine headaches and I can't go into the sun (even indoors) without sunglasses on because the sun hurts my eyes it also burns my skin. I don't know if that has to do with the vaccine but I don't think it's caused from miscarrying my baby. If you have any information about this please share it with me. I don't understand how I can go from a clean bill of health to almost losing my life and losing my baby 2 days later.

Thank you so much for listening to me.

I am one of the victims too!  I had a healthy pregnancy recently and currently have a healthy and happy 6 month old, but miscarried at 11 wks of my 2nd pregnancy 2 days after taking the H1N1 vaccine.  We SHOULD do something!!! I wrote to all the news agencies, but no one seems to care!  We, having go through this, know for sure that the vaccine did this to us, although most in the hospital tell you “it’s unrelated!”  - I had one doctor tell me that it was irrelevant to mention the H1N1 vaccine in discussing my miscarriage (after I mentioned to her that I had that two days prior)!!!  We should do something to keep people informed so as to save others from this.  Please contact me if you know a way to do this.

[Note: ∆Tdays = “2” days after shot at “11” weeks in pregnancy; shot was H1N1 vaccine but no manufacturer, lot number or mercury-level information was provided.  If the vaccine was the reduced-Hg (1 mcg) shot, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 1,000 times EPA RfD for developing children > 24,000 times NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.

I was doing some research and I saw your comment.  I had my 1st ultrasound at 6 weeks and my baby was doing just fine heart rate and all.  Then my doctor told me to get both the H1N1 and seasonal flu shot for the safety of the baby.  I never got any of them and was very skeptical about getting both at the same time.  Needless to say, i got the h1n1 and then the seasonal 3 days later now right before i became 9 weeks I stard cramping and bleeding to find out I had a miscarriage.  They tell me it was nothing I did or could of done to prevent it for some reason my baby didn't continue to grow correctly and it happens to 1 out of 5 women.  This was my 1st pregnancy and were we so exciting.  I didn't think that i could have kids and now that my baby has been taken away from us I feel like my life has ended.  I totally regret getting the shots and wish i would have went with my gut and not got them.  I truly feel that i would still have my baby.  Can you give any suggestions on what you did to get thru this?  I really don't know how to handle this. 

Sincerely,  An empty heart ex mother

My name is Kristina and I found out yesterday that my baby no longer has a heartbeat and died approx. 2 weeks ago.  The baby is measuring at 13 wks and I am 15 weeks. I am scheduled to be induced on Monday and I am terrified!!!  I received the H1N1 shot 3 weeks ago, so 1 week before my baby died. More than anything I am scared of delivering a stillborn baby and was hoping you could tell me your experience.  I feel so alone even though I know miscarriages happen all the time.  I am so sad, scared and exhausted.  I have a healthy 2 year old daughter with no history of miscarriages.  Knowing I can talk to someone will help.  Thank you for listening.  I know I am nothing more than a stranger, so I appreciate you taking the time to read this.  I am sorry for your loss!

I am 8 wks pregnant. I went to my ob 3 wks ago to get blood work and I also received the h1n1 injection. I went for my first sonogram today and we found no heartbeat and opposed to seeing that I was 8 weeks, I only measures 5. After much thought, I can only say that I attribute the miscarriage to the vaccine. I am 33 years old and have 3 healthy children. My hope is that I am still able to conceive and the h1n1 has not taken that away from me. If you are pregnant, especially in your 1st trimester, please DO NOT GET THIS VACCINE! the cdc has not done enough research for it to be deemed safe for pregnant women. Do your own research 1st, then decide.

I should be 11 weeks and two days pregnant today. I had an appointment with my OB/GYN today and was told (from info of ultrasound) that my baby stopped growing on the exact day I had my H1N1 vaccine! This is a very sad day for my family and I. This would have been our first baby. I have submitted a report of my “adverse event” on the following site: https://vaers.hhs.gov/esub/index

To all those that have had problems with the vaccine I would suggest to report your event as well so the government can track this.

After researching the H1N1 vaccine (which I WISH I would have done before I took the vaccine), I cannot believe that all these officials and medical professional would think for a minute that injecting a drug that may contain mercury, formaldehyde, polysorbate 80 (associated with infertility), triton X100 (a strong detergent), phenoxyethanol (antifreeze) and many other toxic ingredients would be SAFE!

It seems as if there is a hidden agenda out there. Just think of the billions of dollars these pharmaceutical companies are making! Could THAT be the agenda??? I wonder…. HOW can the Pharmaceutical companies get away with giving vaccines that can cause death?! To anyone else that would be a crime!

I think we ALL need to join together and try to change the law so that we can protect this from happening to others. We should all push for legislature that will protect ourselves AND our unborn from this crime.

I miscarried last year at 18.5 weeks.

Reading all these comments, I went back to my calendar and noticed that my water broke 6 days after I got the flu shot. Our baby girl was still alive at the time but had passed by the time I delivered.

Autopsy / pathology found nothing wrong. 2nd trimester miscarriages are not as common.

Now this bothers me…

I was 4 1/2 weeks pregnant when I got the H1N1 shot. I started spotting 2 days later, then a 2 weeks later lost my baby. I have 2 kids, with no history of miscarriage. If I could take back getting it I would because I think it caused my miscarriage. My doctor does not believe it does.

46.   Kelly:

If you haven’t had a miscarriage, you shouldn’t comment about someone that has. This is my second miscarriage. I know my first miscarriage had absolutely nothing to do with the H1N1 shot (because it was in 2003), however, this time I believe there definitely could be a connection. I had 3 healthy babies after my first miscarriage. When I went to have my H1N1 shot (which was HIGHLY recommended by the Health Office workers since I WAS pregnant and I higher risk of H1N1), I was around 5 weeks pregnant. When I went in for my next ob appointment, I had an ultrasound that showed I was only 5 week and 2 days, although by that point I was almost 9 weeks pregnant. I never had any symptoms. The baby just died. Instead of reading about how pregnant women shouldn’t get the shot, the ONLY thing I read about pregnant women and the H1N1 shot is that they were top priority for the shot and should have it done as soon as possible. My doctor thought I may have just miscalculated and waited another few weeks to test levels (once a week) until we knew for sure what was going on. Three weeks later (should have been 12 weeks pregnant), I was told that the ultrasound was still showing 5 weeks and 2 days and that the baby was no longer living. I had to have a D&C. Not only was the physical pain traumatizing but the emotional pain was beyond bearable. Something needs to be done. PLEASE, take all of this into consideration before deciding if you are going to get the shot. I wish I wouldn’t have… There seems to be WAY too many stories for this to be a coincidence. If this is what our country is coming to, God, please help us all!

I got the H1N1 vac. when I was 4 and a half weeks pregnant. I started bleeding 2 weeks later and went to the doctor and was told my pregnancy looked perfect for a 4 and a half week pregnanacy! Sounds like to me that everything was perfect until I got the vac. We were completely devastated and I wish I knew the risks before I got it, but the docs will tell you miscarriages happen everyday, but that is not good enough for me.

48.   Canada Also:

We were in our 6 month of pregnancy, and we also got the vaccine, We also lost our baby, within 10 days of taking the vaccine. We also asked our Dr what could of caused this, they gave us many reasons, then we brought up H1N1 Vaccine, and before we could get the INE out in vaccine, they dismissed it as possible cause. I asked how could it be everthing else, and this is not even considered and dismissed immediately, I think if they did a study and found out that it does cause miscarriages, they entire health system would be under scrutiny and law suits.

It was our second child of which we do not have history of miscarriages or any medical or health issues. Upon delivery the baby looked pefect and no ambilical chord around its neck.

49.   Kirylo:

Last month on Nov.16th I had my son premature at 22 weeks along in my pregnancy he lived 5 hrs and then died of heart failure. About a week prior I recieved the H1N1 Flu vaccine. I began cramping in my lower abdomin and bleeding heavily on thursday night and after 75 hrs of labor trying to keep my son inside me as long as posible I delivered him on monday morning. After reading many of these storys I am convinced that I would still be pregnant if I would have denied the vaccine!

[Note: Premature birth: At 21 weeks in a normal pregnancy, the mother had an H1N1 flu shot but no mfg, lot no., or Thimerosal/mercury level or other info (multi-dose, single dose) was given.  At 22 weeks (5.2 months), a male child was delivered but died of heart failure after 5 hours.  Even if the shot was a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) H1N1 vaccine, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 17 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 400 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study. If, as is more probable based on the gestational age and the outcomes observed, it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

I was 14 weeks pregnant almost and took the H1N1 shot because my dr. said to and a few minutes afterwards i had severe headaches and shortness of breath,i called everywhere but no one would tell me nothing, then a couple of days after that i started spotting blood and had to be taken to the emergency room for a threatened misscarriage, then 4 days later i went to the OBGYN for an ultrasound my baby was fine until a couple of days later when i went back for an ultrasound and my baby had died it was a missed miscarriage ihad to wait 2 days for them to do a dnc. I had my baby and placenta sent to the lab for testing ,the results came back my baby was healthy, my choromasones were fine everything was fine, even the sex ,she was a little baby girl! my baby girl! and i think we have all been misinformed by our doctors, and i think the H1N1 shot killed my baby! and i will fight to get the answers because i want justice for my baby!

[Note: ∆Tdays < 8 days after shot at about 13.85 weeks in pregnancy; shot was H1N1 vaccine but no mfg, lot no., or Thimerosal/mercury level or other info (multi-dose, single dose) was given.  Even if the shot was a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) H1N1 vaccine, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 185 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 4,300 times NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.

Just a note to say a friend who received the swine flu shot was to have a c-section right before Christmas.  However, two days before, she stopped feeling life.  She went to the Doctor, and her baby was not alive.  She recently had a swine flu shot.  All tests so far are coming back negative.  No cord problems and no answers.  Mostly, a woman's intuition is correct.  She has a gut instinct it was the swine flu shot. I just wanted to send this email for her who is in a state of depression.  There is strength in numbers.

[Note: Because no gestational dates were provided for the H1N1 shot, unable to calculate Hg exposure in the fetus.]

 

52.   Pauline:  HIN1 Miscarriage  1/2010

I just recently lost my baby at 16 weeks.. My 12 week ultrasound was perfect.. Actually it was more than perfect. They called me and told me my early risk assessment tests were off the chart... my numbers went from1 in 175 to 1 in 2700 chances of any chromosomal issues...

My kids are 11 and 8 and were so excited for their new baby brother...

On thanksgiving I started spotting just a little... mind you I had gotten the shot about a week before..

The next day I went in just to check it out, spotting had stopped... Dr. said the heartbeat was very slow and it did not look good.. I was stunned... What had gone wrong???

That night I had such intense cramping and heavy bleeding it felt like I could have gone right into labor.. I went to the hospital and had to wait 7 hours before they would take me into surgery.. It was unbearable..

I waited 6 weeks for the DR to finally call me and yesterday I got the call that indeed it was NOT chromosomal... big surprise huh??? I knew... I went online for the first time and found article after article about all these women who like me had lost very suddenly after the shot... I was blown away.. I KNEW it never should have happened… this baby was FINE.

So that brings me to you! And I am angry! I am ready to get this word out there... It is just not fair and it's not ok that we had to suffer because they rushed to a terrible decision.

I am here, and I am willing to write to anyone I need to..Let me know how I can help.. I would love to hear from all of you.. I am praying and I feel your pain... It hurts.. It sucks. Its not fair....Plain and simple.

Joyce is an RN, working in the medical profession. She was in her second trimester and was strongly encouraged by her work place to get the flu shot… (H1N1) Novartis on Oct. 21st, at 12 weeks into her pregnancy.  The next day she started to get flu symptoms. The baby died inside of her about a month later. She had to deliver a stillbirth at 20 ˝ weeks on January 14th, but the baby measured only 18 weeks and 4 days

January 6th…6 ˝ pregnant.  The visit was very good. They gave the H1N1 and said it was absolutely safe…no risks. Felt wiped out, tired, couldn’t wake up. Breasts stopped swelling, uterus hurt. One week later, Jan. 13th started to have contractions. January 22nd. Ultra sound, no heartbeat.  Baby stopped living at 6 ˝ weeks, the day of the shot.

55.   Lisa, Iowa:   Subsequently reported to VAERS

I was 6 weeks pregnant when my doctor suggested I get the H1N1 vaccine. I received the shot on Wednesday, November 4, 2009. I didn’t have symptoms that I miscarried until Saturday, December 5th.  However, within a day of receiving the shot, I noticed that my breasts were no longer tender. This was my first pregnancy and I thought I was doing the best thing for me and my baby by getting the shot. The baby had died shortly after the shot. The baby was measuring six weeks and two days when I should have been 10 weeks and 5 days.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 2 days after shot at “6 weeks” in pregnancy; shot was H1N1 vaccine but no mfg, lot no., or Thimerosal/mercury level or other info (multi-dose, single dose) was given.  Even if the shot was a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) H1N1 vaccine, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 30,000 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 690,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.

56.   Stephanie, Ohio:

I received the vaccine on Wednesday after strong encouragement from my physician even though I have vehemently opposed it. With this being my first pregnancy I was easily manipulated. On friday I went to the ER due to bleeding. The doctor informed me that my hormone levels indicate that I'm either about a week along in my pregnancy or I am miscarrying. I had a positive pregnancy test on Dec. 30, I believe that doctor was too much of a coward to really be forthright.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 3 days after shot at “unstated” weeks in pregnancy; shot was a flu shot but no type (seasonal of H1N1), no mfg, no lot no., or no Thimerosal/mercury level or other info (multi-dose, single dose) was given. Because no gestational date was given, unable to calculate Hg exposure in the fetus.]

I was 4 1/2 weeks when i got  the shot. Next day i noticed a little pink but it was so faint I figured it was from...something else. Well the next day i was at work began cramping and bleeding heavily and turns out i miscarried. Something has got to be done. I really feel this shot is the cause of this. It stinks that before i was even given a chance to carry out a healthy pregnancy it was taken away from me.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 2 days after shot at “4 1/2 weeks” in pregnancy; shot was flu vaccine but no type (seasonal of H1N1), no mfg, no lot no., or no Thimerosal/mercury level or other info (multi-dose, single dose) was given.  Even if it was a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) flu shot, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 90,000 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 2,100,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.

58.   Theresa, Eugene, Oregon

On October 29th, my baby was doing well at 13 weeks, 6 days. The nurse said I NEEDED to get the shots for the safety of my baby. I got both shots. Two weeks later I had another appointment and my baby was dead. According to the ultrasound the baby had died 10-12 days prior…that is 2-4 days after the flu shots.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 4 days after getting both shots at “13 weeks, 6 days” in pregnancy; shots were the seasonal and the H1N1 vaccines but no mfgs., lot nos., or Thimerosal/mercury levels or other info (multi-dose, single dose) were given for eathe vaccine.  Even if both vaccine doses were reduced-Hg (1 mcg) vaccines, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 190 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 4,500 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If both were Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

 

59.   Joyce, Pennsylvania:

I am a woman and a registered nurse who was pregnant and received what I was told to be an H1N1 flu shot with no Thimerosal (mercury), which I subsequently found out was not true.  I believe that the spontaneous termination of my pregnancy was due to having received the vaccine. At the time of vaccination, I was 14 weeks pregnant and my pregnancy was going very well. I was at the doctor’s office on November 11th 2009 and heard Ava’s (my baby) heartbeat and everything was fine.

I went for my prenatal 20-wk appointment with my OBGYN on January13th 2009.  The doctor used a Doppler and started to listen for the heart beat but failed to find one. I had still born due to what I believed was from the H1N1 vaccination.

[Note: ∆Tdays < 42 days after shot at “14 weeks” in pregnancy; from the narrative, the shot apparently was a reduced-Thimerosal H1N1 vaccine, but no mfg, lot no., or Thimerosal/mercury level or other info (multi-dose, single dose) was given.  If the shot was a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) H1N1 vaccine, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 170 times EPA RfD for developing children > 4,000 times NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If, contrary to what can be inferred from what was reported, it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

 

60.   Larkspur:

I am writing this declaration in response to the H1N1 Influenza Vaccine and it’s link to miscarriages.  I found out that I was pregnant at Planned Parenthood on November 13th,  I was 28 years old.   January 6th 2010 Went in for sonogram well baby check up, and Dr. Cheri Sears reported to me that she thought she heard the heartbeat a few times but wasn’t sure.  I asked if she would do an ultrasound just to make sure, and she agreed. Dr. Sears did an ultrasound and saw no movement and no heartbeat.  The baby measured at approximately. 9 weeks 1 day old (so development stopped 3 weeks prior to this appointment), which is about 1 ˝  week after receiving the H1N1 shot.  I voiced my concern about the miscarriage being linked to the vaccine.  As to this day neither Dr. Sears nor anybody from Olympia Obstetrics and Gynecology has reported it to VEARS [sic; VAERS].

[Note: ∆Tdays < 11 days after shot at about 7.5 weeks in pregnancy (based on the narrative provided); shot was a H1N1 flu vaccine but no mfg, lot no., or Thimerosal/mercury level or other info (multi-dose, single dose) was given and the patient’s doctors did not immediately file a VAERS report even though the patient asked them to.  If the shot was a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) H1N1 vaccine, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 11,000 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 250,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

 

61.   Drisana, Pennsylvania:

On December 2nd in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania I visited the University of Penn hospital for a prenatal appointment. During the visit this consisted of, checking the baby heartbeat in my health. I was? 12 weeks pregnant. A nurse set my next appointment and conveyed to me that I must get a H1N1 and the flu vaccine for the safety of me and the baby. I communicated to her that I just received the flu vaccine a few months ago and I was in a rush. The nurse told me that it wouldn’t be long, and then took me in another room to insert the two vaccines in my arm. I am a woman who was pregnant and received two (2) flu shot with Thimerosal (mercury) the same day.  I believe that the spontaneous termination of my pregnancy was due to having received the vaccines

[Note: ∆Tdays ? days (implicitly within 1 day but not stated) after 2 shots, seasonal and H1N1, on same day at about “12 weeks” in pregnancy – and patient had had a seasonal “flu vaccine a few months ago”; shots were H1N1 and seasonal vaccine but no mfgs., lot nos., or Thimerosal/mercury levels or other info (multi-dose, single dose) were given.  Even if all three flu shots were reduced-Hg (1 mcg) flu shots and the first one was given before pregnancy so that most of it was tissue bound in the mother before she conceived, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 1,000 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 24,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If both were Thimerosal-preserved doses and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25. If one was Thimerosal preserved and the other was a reduced-Thimerosal dose, the preceding values should be multiplied by 13.]

 

62.   Heather:

All I know is that I wish I would have just not listened to anybody around me. I am going to school studying to be a drug and alcohol abuse counselor… I was very skeptical about getting the vaccine myself as I was aware that the vaccine was so new that and there wasn’t any possible way enough research could have been done on it, unfortunately I let everyone else around me talk me into getting that stupid shot and within a week I began noticing the very early signs of miscarriage, like consistent really painful backache which everyone told me was normal, really bad cramping, etc and I began spotting and eventually miscarried on November 10th, I was due on May 27th. Everything up to that point was completely normal. My boyfriend and I were really excited, we’ve been together for six years and trying for a baby for the last two and a half years, what made us more excited was the fact that we finally knew for sure it was possible for us to have a baby because he used to have bladder cancer and we didn’t think it was even a possibility. I feel to deceived that the health care providers and engineers of this vaccine could so easily push this to some many thousands and thousands of women. The thought just makes me sick to my stomach… these are people who are supposed to be taking care of others, and all they are doing is putting them through the psychological, and emotional pain of stripping away the life of an innocent child.

ANOTHER IMPORTANT THING TO BE AWARE OF… beginning this year the H1N1 vaccine will automatically be combined in with the normal flu shot…. so my advice, and I am not a medical doctor but rather somebody who just has COMMON SENSE do not get the seasonal flu vaccine as it will also contain the H1N1 vaccine. It is ultimately your choice but I WILL NEVER GET ANOTHER FLU SHOT FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!

[Note: ∆Tdays < 14 days after shot at about 11-12 weeks in pregnancy from her narrative and her reported due date (“unfortunately I let everyone else around me talk me into getting that stupid shot and within a week I began noticing the very early signs of miscarriage, like consistent really painful backache which everyone told me was normal, really bad cramping, etc and I began spotting and eventually miscarried on November 10th, I was due on May 27th”.  The shot was probably the H1N1 flu shot, but no mfg, lot no., or Thimerosal/mercury level or other info (multi-dose, single dose) was given.  If the shot was a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) H1N1 vaccine, the fetus’ Hg exposure was > 500 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 12,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study. If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

 

63.   mngirl70:

I miscarried in July and have been trying to get pregnant ever since. I had the shot a few days ago, even though I kept wondering if I should or not. Of course, my doctor told me it was safe. I thought I did all my research. Then almost immediately the next morning I was cramping and today bleeding. I was almost positive that I was finally pregnant again.

It is horrifying to think that all of these miscarriages were because of this vaccine, however I am one who believes that it is just too coincidental. Next time I will listen to what my own mind is telling me. I am so very sorry to hear about everyone else’s story.

For those of you (MissNatural) who are calling women idiots when listening to their doctors, get a heart and have a little grace. Even if you do not agree with the fact that some took the advice of their doctor, it is just plain rude and inconsiderate to say those things. People lost their babies. Don’t be so cruel. It will come back to haunt you one day.

64.   DD:

I have a friend that was far into a healthy pregnancy with a baby girl. she got the h1n1 vaccine at around 6 months into her pregnancy. Two weeks before her due date Jan 10, 2010 the baby past away in her womb. She had to give birth to the baby regardless. I can’t imagine how painful that could be, a totally healthy baby dieing two weeks before birth. A very sad story like all the other expecting mothers out there. What kind of country do we live in? Wealthy industries are building their wealth over the life’s of innocent infants who could of seen this world with the hope and care of their mother and expecting father.

[Note: Baby died at about 40 weeks after an H1N1 vaccine dose with no information provided as to the mfg, lot no., or Thimerosal/mercury level or other info (multi-dose, single dose) was given.  From the administration date, the least fetal-Hg exposure was > 11 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 250 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25.  However, from the narrative and the outcomes reported, it is most likely that the vaccine was a trace-Thimerosal H1N1 vaccine.]

 

65. David:

66. John:

A pregnant family friend boasted that her ‘doctor’ husband gave her and her 2 year old a ‘head-of-the-line’ pass to receive the H1N1 vaccine and posted that on her facebook as if it some sort of badge of honor. The warning is clearly written in the package insert… DO NOT TAKE IF PREGNANT. Good doctors risking the state medical boards’ wrath and good scientists warned women NOT to take this vaccine for the very reason of risk of termination of the fetus. This warning is for the ENTIRE length of the pregnancy. This family friend who once boasted about getting ahead of ‘others’ to get this shot lost her little baby boy after carrying this little angel for almost 37 weeks. The medical staff / her doctor husband have NO explanation for the baby being stillborn. What’s even a bigger tragedy isn’t that having to avoid being asked over and over, “what do you think happened” by people not in the know, the couple FALSLY put out an ‘alternative explanation’, the biggest tragedy of all is that this couple believes the lie. My question is how many other couples / women ‘made up’ an explanation and will just keep repeating these tragic mistakes regarding vaccines.

67. Nikki: Feb. 18, 2010 SELF-REPORTED TO VAERS

I am writing to you as per a note you had posted on Health Freedom Alliance. I had an ultrasound at 8 weeks, with a normal heartbeat and the fetus appeared  be healthy. I received the H1N1 shot that same day at the Health dept. Within about 24 hrs after the shot I had chills and back pain and then felt tired, after seeing some spotting I contacted my DR and a second ultrasound showed that the fetus had miscarried during that same week approx 3 days later. I had one previous full term pregnancy two years ago with no complications. Received the shot Jan.19th after OB/GYN appointment and ultrasound. I did complete a VAERS form online.

[Note: ∆Tdays ≈ 3 days after shot at about 8 weeks in pregnancy; shot was a H1N1 flu shot, but no mfg, lot no., or Thimerosal/mercury level or other info (multi-dose, single dose) was given.  If the shot was a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) H1N1 vaccine, the fetus’ Hg exposure was ≈ 10,000 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 240,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

 

  68. Samantha:  February 23, 2010

I also miscarried, I was 9 weeks when I took the h1n1 shot, found out at 12 weeks I miscarried, when I went to hear the heartbeat, they told me the baby stopped growing when I was around 9 weeks. I was devastated.

[Note: ∆Tdays, miscarriage ≈ 21 days after shot at about 9 weeks in pregnancy, but ∆Tdays, growth stopped < 7 days; shot was a H1N1 flu shot, but no mfg, lot no., or Thimerosal/mercury level or other info (multi-dose, single dose) was given.  If the shot was a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) H1N1 vaccine, the fetus’ Hg exposure was ≈ 5,000 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 120,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If it was Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the preceding values should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

 

 

 69. Lisa: Wed, 2/24/10 Colo. Sprgs.  CO  REPORTED TO VAERS

I work at a hospital and was recommended to also get the vaccination. Everyone told me to "do it for the baby". So, considering the fact they are healthcare professionals, I did get vaccinated. I lost my baby on Friday, February 19th. I have 2 other sons, both good pregnancies. When the nurse who administered the injection was asked if I got the same shot as anyone else, she answered yes. This meaning that my injection contained Thimerosal, which is equal to one full dose of mercury! I don't know if this is any use to you or anyone else, but I am leaning towards the decision that the vaccination was possibly the cause of this heartbreaking event. I am very sorry for yours and everyone else’s loss, as I feel none of us were at all aware there was a mercury free injection for pregnant women. One last thought, next years regular flu vaccine is going to be mixed with the H1N1 in the same vial, so beware and know that I will not be accepting the flu shot again! Hope this helps.
[Note: ∆Tdays = ??? days after shot at unreported weeks in pregnancy; shot was a H1N1 flu shot, but no mfg, or lot no. – Thimerosal/mercury level or other info indicates a shot from a multi-dose – was given.  Without more information cannot even estimate fetus’ mercury exposure.]

 

70. Bobbie:  REPORTED TO VAERS

Sept. 29, 2009, I first went to the doctor and had a sonogram same day.  The doctor said the sonogram showed me to be 9 weeks.  On Oct. 9, 2009, I had another sonogram.  It showed that I was normal and on track – my baby was developing fine. 

About a month later, on Nov. 6, 2009, I received an H1N1 shot (from a Thimerosal-preserved multi-dose vial [Sanofi Pasteur Lot# UPO15AA]). 

On Dec 4, 2009, according to what I was told, I had an apparently healthy ultrasound.

On Dec. 10, 2009, I had another sonogram at my doctor’s office, but, according to what he told me, his machine is so old we couldn't get a good reading. Since my doctor had no concerns, I didn't go to the hospital for another sonogram because I seemed to be fine.  

On Dec 21, 2009, I began having problems; my doctor could detect no fetal heart tones; and I was passing huge blood clots. So I had an ultrasound which confirmed my child was dead, went immediately for an induction (at 21 weeks) and gave birth to a stillborn girl.

On December 23, 2009, an autopsy was performed and the results indicated that the baby died at about 16 weeks.  Thus, my daughter actually died about 5 weeks prior to December 21, 2009 on about November 16, 2009 – about 10 days after I was injected with a Thimerosal-preserved H1N1 vaccine.

Previously, I had had 2 normal pregnancies with no flu shots and no problems.  Now, I get this shot and I am left with no child. So I’m almost positive that we are not alone in thinking that this Thimerosal-preserved vaccine is what is causing some of pregnant women, myself included, to miscarry shortly after we get an H1N1 shot.  Given my stage in pregnancy when I got the shot and the timeline afterwards, the autopsy findings, and my two prior normal pregnancies during which I was not given a flu shot, I know that the vaccine caused my unborn child to die. 

Finally, I THINK THERE WILL BE A LOT OF LAW SUITS COMING FORTH. So I am right there with all of the other moms that went through the same thing.

[Note: ∆T days, fetal death ≈ 10 days after shot at about 14.5 weeks in pregnancy (and ∆T days, miscarriage ≈ 44 days after shot); shot was a Thimerosal-preserved Sanofi Pasteur multi-dose H1N1 flu shot, Lot no. Lot# UPO15AA.  If the autopsy estimates of fetal death at 16 weeks and the timing to 16 November 2010 are accepted, the fetus was about 14.5 weeks (at the start of the second trimester) when her mother was vaccinated and the shot was a ful-dose-Hg (25 mcg) H1N1 vaccine, the fetus’ Hg exposure was ≈ 4,700 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 113,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study and the fetus’ estimated mercury exposure.  Based on the autopsy results, reviewer must question the validity of the information conveyed to this mother on December 4 and 10, 2009 or else the autopsy information is either incorrect or misunderstood.]

On Saturday, February 20th I was about 8 weeks pregnant. I went to the Parkland Women’s Center where I had a sonogram. The nurse told me that everything was all right.

I had another appointment Thursday, February 25th.  The nurse asked me if I already had a flu vaccine and I said no.  She ask me if I wanted to have it that day and I said yes without knowing it was going to kill my baby and paralyze me.  So she gave me both the H1N1 flu vaccine and seasonal flu shot.

I went home on and when I woke up the next day, Friday, February 26, all my body muscle was very painful.  I called the hospital on Monday, March 1st because the pain was getting worse.  They told me to take Tylenol.  The next day, Tuesday, March 2nd 2010, I went back to the Parkland ER because I was bleeding from my vagina and I had severe abdominal cramps.  They ran another sonogram and told me that the baby did not have a heart beat and that I was in process of miscarrying.

The father of my child, Daniel Djeumo, was with me and told the staff that he thought it was the vaccines.  They denied that it could have been the case.  They sent me home and gave me a follow-up appointment for Wednesday, March 10, 2010.  I think that the combination of the seasonal flu shot and H1N1 shot killed my baby .

[Note: ∆T days, miscarriage ≈ 5 days after shot at about 8.7 weeks in pregnancy (and ∆T days, fetal death probably < 3 days after both seasonal and pandemic flu shots); but no mfg, lot no., or Thimerosal/mercury level or other info (multi-dose, single dose) was provided in the narrative for either vaccine.  If the shots were a reduced-Hg (1 mcg) H1N1 vaccine and a reduced-Hg seasonal flu shot, the fetus’ Hg exposure was ≈ 13,000 times the EPA RfD for developing children and > 310,000 times the NOAEL injected Thimerosal, developing child based on FDA-accepted injected-Thimerosal chronic-toxicity study.  If one vaccine was Thimerosal-preserved and the other was a reduced-Hg, the preceding toxicity levels should be multiplied by a factor of 13.  If the vaccines were both Thimerosal-preserved and delivered about 25 microgram of mercury, the calculated values should be multiplied by a factor of 25.]

My husband and I found out we had lost the baby at my 10.5 week appointment on February 22nd, 2010 at our doctor’s facility. We were told that the baby had died approximately 1.5 - 2 weeks prior to this appointment. I was told that on February 25th I’d be getting a D & C procedure because of how far along I was and that it was dangerous to miscarry at that point at home.  After a long few months recovering and thinking about things that happened I went to my doctor’s Grievance Department regarding the H1N1 vaccination that I felt I was forced into on January 26th, 2010 which I believe led to the loss of my baby. On January 26th 2010 I was told (along with my husband) that if I didn’t have I could die because many women my age, size, and pregnant had already. The doctor actually drew a diagram explaining the flu virus and H1N1 and how it spreads and kills. When I was told that I’d be signing my rights away if I left the office without doing it, I went and got the vaccine.

Is there going to be some sort of class action law suit about this issue? I have had a very difficult time since learning my unborn baby died in me within days of getting my flu shot and I just got the results of the pathology report and they could not find anything wrong with my baby. I am certain the flu shot caused this.

I was in my second trimester and I am a very healthy 30 year old. My OBGYN is the one who told me if I don't get my flu shot and I get the flu my baby and I would get very sick and could die. I told my OBGYN I hadn't gotten my flu shot yet because I wasn't sure if it was safe to get the shot while pregnant and she assured me it is safe.

Doctors should also be held accountable for not telling their patients that the flu shot insert says that it has not been tested on pregnant women and they are not sure it is safe and let the patient make that choice. My doctor never said the insert says this. I have always trusted the advice of doctors. It wasn't until my baby died inside of me and I had to get a d&e done and I started to think what could have caused this. I asked the doctor who did my d&e could it have been the flu shot and right away she said no.

The timing of when they estimated the baby died was 15 weeks and I got my flu shot 4 days before that. My body didn't realize yet the baby died and I carried my dead baby inside of me till my next months appointment, when they could not find a fetal heart beat. I know it is common for women to miscarry in the 1st trimester but I miscarried in the 2nd trimester.

I had my 1st trimester screening and I had the lowest possible risk of having a baby with down syndrome they did the ultrasound and blood work for this screening. I just wanted to let you know I did report this to VAERS. My doctor didn't even tell me about VAERS. I had to do the research myself.

Just think of all the women who are having miscarriages and stillbirths and they aren't even thinking about the flu shot as a cause because the doctors don't suspect it and won't consider it a possibility. A class action lawsuit might bring the attention needed to this issue and the public. If I had known about this data with the flu shot from 2009 I would not have gotten the flu shot on October 19th 2010. I wasn't even aware of VAERS until this tragedy happened to my family. Keep my info and please let me know if there is any lawsuit or anything I could do to help.

 

 

After reading everyone's posts, there needs to be a class action
