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.

6th times a charm?
My name is Amanda and I'm 25 years old. My husband and I have a beautiful baby daughter who's over 3 now, which I had in 2003. During my pregnancy I had what's known as displaysia and after I gave birth received what's called the LEEP procedure, but besides that I had a perfectly healthy pregnancy. She came out 11 days late at 9"9" and absolutely beautiful.
Since then I have lost my past four children from 6 weeks- 2 months and one day. The last one came so quickly after the prior miscarriage that there wasn't time for any testing in between. I was up late one night and started bleeding. I went to the toilet and heard a plunk. Desperate for answers, I took a ladle and spooned out was was left of my pregnancy to put in the refrigerator until the next morning for testing. I must state that it was the most traumatic thing I've ever done.
I've gotten no answers from any of the tests and here I am, pregnant again. I try to be excited which is what pregnancy should be, but I have such worry in my heart. I do everything right. I don't drink caffeine, eat the wrong foods, drink alcohol, smoke, even go places where other people do those things, but it's not enough. It just shows you that nothing is in your hands.
We haven't told our families yet because every time we do decide to tell them we lose the baby shortly after, but on the other hand I couldn't imagine losing a child and not having the support of my family.
I don't know any of you who may read this or who may skim past it, but please say a prayer for my unborn child and I'll send some prayers your way as well. Thanks for listening.
PMS Symptoms after miscarriageI recently went through an early miscarriage last month and it has been going on 4 weeks since and I still haven't got my "." and I have been experiencing PMS symptoms for most of this time. I keep expecting my "." to arrive any day and hope it does because I feel it is affecting my day-to-day activities.
Normally I have PMS for 1 week before my period, not 3 and a half weeks straight. I have been trying to keep positive about last months ordeal because we are blessed with an 8 month old baby girl already and we only had a couple of days to take in the pregnancy news before I miscarried. I am sad about it though and the other symptoms haven't helped much.
I keep expecting it to come any minute and nothing happens. A friend of mine thinks I might still be pregnant, but I feel it is impossible with how much blood I lost and all the cramping I had at the same time. She told me she had three normal periods during her pregnancy with her daughter.
The painI am only 15 and have dealt with one of the most tragic times in a female’s life. I lost my baby at the age of 14, and I was 6 months along.
I know that it is hard to lose a baby when you are older but at such a young age I decided that’s what I wanted. I felt I wanted someone to love me because I had no one to do it for me. Everyone treated me badly and I was going though a lot of things. I was known as a "bad" girl; it sucked and the pregnancy made me feel that I would have someone to care for that would care for me back.
I was getting ready to go to a teen mom’s placement to learn how to be a good mom to my kid because I really didn’t know how because I was not taught because my mom is not what I consider a good mom. She’s in jail and not taking care of her responsibilities, but yea that’s a little about my story. Tell me yours!
losing my firstI had my first miscarriage 7 years ago today (3/5/07) it is still very painful, I think about it every year.
Me and the dad split up before I found out and when I told him I was pregnant he didn't believe me. I found out 2 weeks before the miscarriage that I was pregnant. I was excited but nervous as I was only 18, I had my family around me but it didn't stop them telling me I should have an abortion as I wasn't ready but I had a baby growing inside me I wasn't going to kill it. I never really had the morning sickness. My friends and family had everything for me so I thought that was funny.
The day of the miscarriage I went to the local college t see if I could get on a course. I got accepted, my aunty told me not to tell them I was pregnant as they might not let me in, so I didn't and I got in, that evening I was sat down ready to watch neighbours when I thought something didn't feel right, I looked at noticed I had blood on my jeans, so I went to check, I shouted to my aunty who asked did I feel something just fall so I said yes, she told me I had had a miscarriage.
I didn't understand at the time but it started to sink in a few hours after, I started to cry my self to sleep at night but not loud enough for anyone to hear me. I have never forgotten that day, I have been told to move on but it is hard.
I have had 3 more since the doctors can't find a reason why. I am with a bloke now he knows what I have gone through as I have told him, hopefully in the future things will go right for me for a change, you never know the next time I write on here it is to say I am pregnant.
Jr.'s GoneHe would have been our first baby together, we were so excited though a little antsy about telling everyone just yet. It would be the second miscarriage for me so I always had the fear of miscarrying in the back of me head.
It started Sunday morning April 30th 2007 around 6:50 that morning we were laying in be when I felt as if I started urinating on myself, I got out of bed and went to the restroom when I found my white pajama pants full of blood. My fiancé followed me and as he seen what was going on. He was stunned; all I could do was sit there in a daze wondering why this was happening to us.
I went to the hospital where they told me I was having a miscarriage and there was nothing they could do to stop it; they sent me home and told me when the baby passes through to bring it to the hospital for testing. I was so afraid my fiancé and I laid in bed the remainder of the day and cried for what seemed like forever.
My baby passed but only in blood clots I couldn't even bare to look when they came out. My fiancé blames himself for the death of our baby but I say maybe GOD has something planned for the both of us.
I still feel extremely saddened by all of these past few days events, Please keep us in your prayers.
