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.

#7I have 2 healthy children age 11 and 4 and thank God everyday for both of them But I have never felt as though my family was complete.
Here is my story. On New Years Eve 2002 at 14 weeks I started spotting, my husband and I went to the ER and had an ultrasound done. We were told that the baby's head was abnormally large for his gestational age and tht the heart rate was slow. I was sent home with instructions to relax and wait and see blah blah blah.....45 minutes later....My water broke and I had started bleeding profusely and passed my baby. I had to be taken in a wheel chair from the car to the room. I lost consciousness etc. and the only comment the ER doctor hadfor me was "I am sorry if i had known I wouldn't have sent you home" I had to wake up in the labor and deliver floor and be wheeled out with no baby. It was devastating.
I waited for 2 years and on Jan 15 2005 found that I was pregnant again. My husband and I were caustiously happy. 3 weeks later I started spotting and went for an ultrasound. The ultrasound should that the baby was 6 weeks 5 days and the heartbeat was strong, I was sent home on bed rest and told to call if the bleeding got worse. 11 days later I passed the baby. Again I was completely devasted. Testing was done and it was found that I had a clotting disorder (Antiphospholipid syndrome) and should begin taking baby aspirin
With there seeming to be no difference in waiting a long period before getting pregnant again I wasted no time, I started the baby aspirin and saw my ob/gyn who saw no problem with that. I got pregnant righ away (March 2005) I was put on progesterone "just in case" I had an early ultrasound and it showed that I was only 5weeks at the end of March. everything went uneventful until the first week of May when once again I started spotting again. This time it took 3 days and I passed the baby. So close to mothers day. I was sent to EVMS (teaching hospital) and had tests done to see why I was miscarrying especially after having 2 healthy babies. All the test results came back normal, even the APS wasn't there.
My Husband and I decided to take a break for a while. Until I got pregnant again in march of 2006. I didn't even make it to the Dr and started spotting, I once again passed the baby a week later. I figured that I was approx. 6 1/2 weeks along.
Well now I found out that I was pregnant again on Sept. 9 2006 I went to the dr on Sept 12 and had my HCG levels drawn the came back at only 44 ( my lmp was 7/27) my levels should have been alot higher than that. The midwife called and told me that I was having a miscarriage and not to bother coming in for the 2nd HCg levels. I wasn't happy with that. I made them draw the levels again and found that the results were 110. Nearly tripled in 2 days. needless to say I changed dr's. I went for my first appt on Sept 27 they decided to put me on baby aspirin, progesterone, and Lovenox injections, as my records hadn't been sent yet....14 days later and the other dr office still hadn't sent them.....went back for an ultrasound on Oct. 3 and the found a 7week 3 day baby with a heartbeat of 146....was told that everythiing was looking great but showing nearly 2 and 1/2 weeks earlier than my lmp predicts. So now i am supposed to sit here and wait until my next ultrasound on Nov. 1. I can't bear the thought that I will lose this baby too. If I miscarry again we will not try again.......so final. Everything in life is so much more fragile than anyone realizes....and so many women take what we are naturally supposed to be able to do for granted....
LostI was 2 months pregnant when i started bleeding. I called the dr. and she told me to come in and have my hcg levels checked. They talked to me like it was no big deal, it really hurt my feelings. They told me if it was a misscairrage that there was nothing they could do to stop it. The next day the bleeding stopped, i was so happy i thought everything would be fine and the baby was going to be alright. Well the next day i woke up at 5 in the morning and i was blrrding and cramping like crazy it felt like my whole insides were trying to come out. Three hours later i passed the umbelical cord and the sac, I think i passed the baby at the hospital but never saw it. They had to give me an u/s to make sure everything had passed. I will never forget how sad it was to be going thru this living hell and to top it off the lady made sure i got to see my only ultrasound was empty. That may have been the worst thing that anyone has ever done to me. I would never show a mother who just lost her first child an empty sonogram. Thanks for reading it does help to put your story out there!
My little boyI took a pregnancy test on the morning of August 7,2006 and it was positive. My husband and i were so excited to be expecting our first baby. I set up an appointment that afternoon at my Dr. But since it was only the first day of my missed period, and late in the day so the dr said they could see a very light line but it was too faint to say for sure that i was pregnant(i thought any line at all meant that i was) It was quite annoying. Anyway, I took another one the next morning at home and it came back positive again. I wasnt going to waste another trip to the drs, so i had made an appointment for August 18th, when i was sure that the HCG hormone would show up no matter what time of day. So those were a happy two weeks. My husband and i talked about what our child might be like, who he would look like, what type of personality. We imagined he would be a boy. We would name him Malchijah which means The Lord is my Counselor. It was not to be however.
On August 18th I was at work, went to the bathroom. I saw blood and just automatically started crying. I pulled myself together, went to my boss, and told him i had to leave. He could see i was upset, and i left for home. That was the longest ride i think i have ever taken. I could feel the cramps coming on. My husband had taken a nap and when i got home my plan was to tell him very calmly. As soon as i saw him i broke down again. I could barely say the words, and he jumped up and was gone as i lay there crying. He had gone to call the doctors who told him to take me to the hospital. I just kept on bleeding and i felt such an overwhelming sense of loss. When we got to the hospital my brother in law came and prayed with us. I felt God's love there in the room with us when we were praying. I knew what was happening, but God was telling me to trust Him. I do and he has taken such incredible care of me during this time. The drs told me that I had been about six weeks along and I had had a miscarriage and had to take it easy.
I met women who had had several miscarriages before having a healthy baby. God put these women in my life in exactly the time that i needed them. It has been about two months since this happened and I sometimes feel like i could cry at any time. My husband is so protective and caring of me. I hope we get pregnant again but i think i need a few months more to get through this sadness.
Lossing my little peanutAs a freshman in college, not a lot matters but having fun and living for the moment. I happen to be lucky enough to have a boyfirend that attends the same college whom I
love tremenously. We are extremely close friends, and incredable lovers.
He was the sport jocky and I was the cheerleader from a rival school. We had talked casually over the years, yet both of us were to shy to go for the first move.
It all started one night when he asked me for my telephone number after a game. I was soo excited! I could barely contain myself enough to talk calmly to him! He called me the following night, and we talked for over two hours. We just hit it off. We both were obsessed with sports, loved to sing, both are out going, and we both love to do adventureous things.
With the amount of time we spent either together or on the phone, our relationship got serious before we realized it. College started in the fall, and we both moved in to our dorms. After moving in, I realized that I had started to lose my appetite for some of my favorite foods, and started throwing up periodically during the day. After missing my cycle, I bought a pregnancy test. It came out negative so I was positive that I wasn't pregnant, yet I was still sick. I finally went to the doctor to see if the test was right. He told me that I was two months pregnant. I was floored. I had never seen myself as a teen mom. As the girl who had the baby on her hip between classes..
After some time of thinking about it, I got really excited. My boyfriend was really supportive and excited too. We were scared, but anxious to see what the future held for us.
I started to cramp one night, but passed it off as just something that happened during a pregnancy. The next morning, I was really in pain. Over the next couple of days, I just couldn't get rid of the cramping. That's when I started to bleed heavily. I got scared so I had my roommate take me to the doctor office. The doctor told me that I had already had the misscarriage..
Words can't describe how I felt. I felt like everything had just come crashing down on top of me, and I couldn't get out. I know that I would have been a young mom, but I believe anyone can be a great mom when they love their baby, and try to be the best mom they could. One of the hardest things for me to do was tell my boyfriend-I didn't want him to think of me as less of a woman for the failed pregnancy. I am still struggling with the thought of being pregnant, and then finding out I wasn't anymore...yet I have some great people helping me through it.
Even if I wasn't very far along..I still feel like I lost a child.. I know she's in good hands though now, an it gives me a great peace knowing she's with God.
She's my little peanut, and I'll always remember and love her deeply!
