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.

My Little Emily
I was about 24 weeks along in my pregnancy when I noticed a decline in movement one day and then none the next. I knew something was wrong and it was confirmed by the ultrasound. My little Emily had died. I'm not sure how or why.
All of my tests were fine before and after. It seems that sometimes there are no reasons. It has been about 5 weeks since I found out she was no longer living. It sometimes feels like yesterday and sometimes it feels as if it occurred months ago. Like so many of you, I will always remember my little girl. I think it is very important to talk about our little ones who died so soon. Their lives are very precious and gave us great joy and comfort when they were inside of us.
I thank my little Emily for the 5.5 months that I had with her. It was truly a wonderful time. Although I experienced morning sickness and other not so fun side effects of pregnancy, the joys of carrying a new little life inside of me were worth it. I really remember her little kicks and swimming exercises. She loved to swim around in there. I hope that sheís up in heaven right now swimming around, just like she did every day in my uterus.
My husband and I will always miss her, but our lives are so much richer at having known her. I have her one ultrasound picture in a little memory book along with her hand and foot prints. They sit along side her ashes and a little pink teddy bear that the hospital gave me. I thank god for the wonderful times that I had with my little Emily and I look to the future. I am not sure what it will hold, but it is brighter.
I wish good fortune to everyone who has had pregnancy losses. May you find peace.
my dream was lostI just got back with ex-boyfriend. We have known each other for six years. All he would talk about was how he wanted a baby, but I told him I wasn't ready for one because I wanted to finish school first. He was the first person I ever kissed and everything. A month went by and I missed my period. I believed it was nothing because I always skipped.
Then two weeks went by and I had a feeling that I should tell him that Iím a month and a half late on my period. A few weeks went by and I started getting sick and sleeping a lot, so I started to think that I was pregnant. I told my cousin that I believed that I was pregnant and she got me a test and it came back negative, or thatís what we believed.
The next day she took the test and hers came back negative. Then she came to work and told me that mine came out positive. I asked her to bring me another one. A week went by and that one was positive. So I knew I was that I had to tell my parents and his parents. It was hard but I did. Then went I was a week away from being five months I started having lots of pain so I went to the restroom thinking that something was wrong.
Then I saw that I was bleeding so went to the ER with my mother and boyfriend. About ten minutes went by and then they called us back. They took a few tests and then I heard my babyís heart. The doctor came in and said I lost the baby. I was so, so sad. Me and my boyfriend are trying again.
I am pregnant/again = ) / =(I just found out that I am pregnant for the second time. It is January and I am 4 weeks pregnant. I had a D&C due to a blighted Ovum in October and I am scared that I will miscarry again. I took a hot bath, I ate Sushi, used an electric blanket, all without knowing that I was pregnant. I can't stop worrying. I am going to see my doctor next week and I will book an ultrasound for the week after (which is how I found out the first time that there was no embryo in the sac). My husband and I were so excited the first time. Every weekend we went to the mall to look at baby stuff - we never bought anything cause we didn't want to jinx it. Needless to say we were devastated and I saw my husband cry for the first time in 7 years! It was so hard for us because we were so excited. We are both scared to be excited now. We will find out at the ultrasound if there is a baby there. That will be happy day, if not, we will be prepared as well as we can be.
miscarriageI had a miscarriage when I was 7 weeks pregnant in my first pregnancy. Initially I was just relieved to know what was finally happening to me, as I had known that things just weren't right for a while. A couple of weeks later, I was overwhelmed by grief and couldn't stop crying. Seven weeks later, I am still sad and don't feel back to normal, though I am now able to go out in large groups, which is something I wasnít able to do for weeks. I don't think the pain will ever go away completely, but I feel slightly better now. I am now focusing on other things other than pregnancy.
my babyI went for a scan when I was 10 weeks pregnant but was told my baby had no heartbeat and had stopped growing at 7 weeks. They told me to go back in a week but it was still the same. My baby had died in the womb. This is my 4th miscarriage. I'm 37 but also have 3 healthy children. That was 3 months ago. Today I have found out I'm pregnant again about 5 weeks. I am really scared of this happening again, as Iím still waiting to bury the last baby, which will be in two weeks time. Hope this oneís ok
