Pregnancy Loss

Dealing with a miscarriage can be devastating. While many may pass off a miscarriage as a pregnancy that "just wasn't meant to be", these words rarely help to relieve your grief. Although a miscarriage can be an isolating experience, it doesn't have to be. Women who are or who have previously dealt with a miscarriage are often a great resource to those currently suffering from a pregnancy loss. Share your words with us and share your support with other women.

It is best to avoid using stimulants during pregnancy. Amphetamines and dextroamphetamines are powerful drugs and when taken during pregnancy, they can cause miscarriage, early labor or birth defects. You may want to ask other women if they have had personal experience with this.

My 2nd


I was so excited to find out I was pregnant for the 2nd time. I went to the doctor and when she checked me, she asked if I was sure of my date. I said, 'yes'. She said it felt smaller. I was 6 weeks, she said 4 weeks. I was positive of my last period.

So, I had an ultrasound done and while in process, I asked the girl if we could hear the baby's heartbeat. She didnít say anything, just kept checking. Then, she said that my baby was developing the way it should. So I went back to my doctor and he told me that I was pregnant, but it wasn't a normal pregnancy. It was called a 'blight ovum'. It's when the placenta forms but the baby doesn't. So I was still throwing up, feeling nauseous. He said my body would naturally miscarry.

He gave me the option of taking some pills to make it happen right away. I got them, but was undecided if I should take them. My mom is saying yes, my sister is saying no. My husband wasn't saying either or. He doesn't like to pressure me. In the end, we decided that I should take the pills. I started bleeding right away. I bled for about 1 week and half. I had little pain, plus I took painkillers that made me feel like I was drunk. I was very depressed for a long time. At my job, several co-workers were pregnant. I was so jealous. It was a very depressing experience in my life and I don't like to talk about it very much.

Pregnancy loss at week 19

I have been trying to conceive for over 2 years now, since I was 27 and so far all I have to show is 3 separate miscarriages. Two of them in the 8th and 10th week and the last one, yesterday, at 19 weeks. I was so convinced that this pregnancy would last when I got past the 1st trimester, especially since the statistics said only around 1% of miscarriages happen after the 1st trimester. I went with my husband to the get an ultrasound in the beginning of the 19th week having felt the baby move only a day before and he informed us that there was no heartbeat anymore.

It was crushing news, especially to my husband for whom this was the first ultrasound and the time when we would have seen the sex of the baby. I ended up having to console him and had no one to console me. I didn't know what to do and still feel like all these miscarriages are my fault. It is really hard for me to deal with especially since the spent the last 3 days in a hospital bed trying to induce labor. Now I feel I have finally started to grieve and I donít know how to move on completely.

Of course my husband is hurt as well since he was right beside me when my little son came out, especially since he was the only one in the room at the time as the nurse stepped out to call the doctor to come. I couldn't even look at the dead baby since I was so disappointed and felt like it was my entire fault that I can't even keep a pregnancy to term. My husband is trying to make me move on but ends up saying all the wrong things right now although he doesn't mean it that way. I am really having trouble coping with everything. I would live to know the magical formula on how to get over this!

The lost of a young one...

The most horrible thing that has happen to me in my life, I would have to say is the day I lost my child, I was 15 years old, I couldnít believe it I was pregnant at first I was so happy but I was also scared. I didnít want to tell my mom but I had no choice, about my 6 month I found out that my baby had died. I couldnít believe it; I really wanted to have my baby, when I told her father he was really upset.

Miscarriage and Alone

My husband just recently left for Iraq on a 15 yo 18-month tour. We have been married for 4 months, and I just moved from my comfort zone with all the people I know to a different city to be with him. After he left, I found out I was pregnant and was so excited. I unfortunately miscarried this week, and I just feel so alone and I'm worried that this happened because of the mother I would be.

2 MISCARRIAGES

I have a 4 year old daughter in the year 2003, I am know 23 ever since then it has been hard for me to carry. Had a miscarriage in 2004 and also this year in March 2007...I am now pregnant again at 5 weeks and they say to worry about. If there was a reason for miscarriages happening then I would not worry so much but they just say itís nothing we have done wrong. I wish they could find the problem why this happens to so many of us...All we can do is keep tryingÖAt least we all know we are not alone and good luck will come to us someday...If pregnancy is meant to be a natural thing then why does this happen?? Think they will never have a reason just have to Pray that one day maybe.
