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.

Losing My Love Child


I am so happy to find this board and share my deepest feelings about losing my love child. I am a widow (18 years marriage - a beautiful marriage). It took me a while to start dating. I have three beautiful children delievered by C-Section.

I somehow did the " never say never" thing. Reluntantly got into a relationship with a married man. And of course, after my third C-Section, my doctor told me that I had a lot of scarring and did not see any more pregnancy for me.

Well, with all of that and some eight years of not using any contraceptive products and no pregnancy, I felt sure it will never happen to me again. But it did and I was surprised, scared, ashamed you name it. I am also prolife. So for me abortion is out of the question.

My sweetheart was highly upset about the pregnancy even though he knew we were not using any protection. I stood my grounds on no abortion and was prepared to go it alone, as I am in that situation right now being widowed. He finally came around, even though it caused some problem for him at home, he was supporting me 100% on having the baby.

All was going well, I was eight weeks along, and then I started spotting. I thought I was going crazy. I really wanted the baby. My doctor told me he had to do a D&C because I had had an incomplete misscarriage. This was two weeks ago. I find myself looking at other women who are pregnant and it hurts. I want to try again, I feel this will help to heal the pain. I lay awake at nights and cannot sleep.

People who have never experienced it do not know the pain and the emotional stress that one has to endure. I am still at home on sick leave because of the procedure, and keep saying to myself that I am home because of my baby, but without my baby. I keep wondering what my baby would have looked like, whether it was a boy or girl and just picturing my baby in my arms.

Pray for me.

miscarriage

Well i have a little girl who is 3 and i have had 3 miscarriages since i had her. I don't know what to do or what is the cause and why does this keep happening. Maybe it is not meant to be. I had a very bad time with my little girl bed rest at 20 weeks they told us she would never make it to 24 weeeks and if she did there would be all kinds of things wrong with her.

i made it to 37 weeks and she was good as gold. maybe i should just be thankful for her and stop trying to have another.

thanks for listening.

Hopeful

My husband and I got pregnant in August 2005 - our first time trying. We had an ultrasound that was truly amazing at 7 weeks - we saw our little "kidney bean" in the sac, and a flickering heartbeat. The techs had trouble measuring the heartrate, and came up with a range of 50-102, with that whole range being on the low side. We were told not to worry, but when we had our follow-up ultrasound 1 week later, there was no heartbeat. It was devastating. I had a d&c in late September, and have had 3 ovulating cycles since with no luck. It was so easy the first time, and we are so anxious to become pregnant again, so we can have our own little miracle.

Bleeding at week 2 an week 6

I was excited on the 8th Feb to discover I was pregnant. I tested positive on the Tuesday, went straight to see my doctor who organised a dating scan. By the Thursday I was spotting blood, not much and mainly brown. Then on the Saturday I passed a much darker blood along with a clot and what looked like some tissue.

Of course I was very upset as we have been trying for a few months. I assumed I had lost the baby but still felt pregnant. I tested postive almost a week after this event and have had breast soreness for the last 6 weeks. Today I have started to bleed. Now it looks like a period rather than spotting so I am thinking that yes I actually did lose the baby last month as I originally thought.

It's been such a confusing time and I at least feel some sense of relief now. It seems strange that my breasts are so sore and that the tests all came back positive so long after the suspected mc. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

Still Born

It was April 1, 2005 when my husband and I discovered that I was pregnant for the first time. It was a remarkable feeling to know that I was going to bring a little life into the world. I took all necessary precautions during my pregnancy, the best prenatal care, eating well, exercising and educating myself on pregnancy.

We had decided to find out the sex of the baby at my first ultra sound, it was a girl! Of course, most pregnant women start preparing for their newborn as I did. I could not have been more prepared for our little girl, mentally and physically. As it got closer to my due date, I could feel my body preparing for labor.

I went to the doctor on Thursday and was healthy as can be. The baby was moving and had a heart beat. When I awoke on Saturday morning I immediately knew something was wrong! I didn't feel any movement even after I ate breakfast. I and my husband checked into the emergency about 8:30 a.m. As the doctor was performing the ultrasound, there was no heartbeat........ I just couldn't believe it because she felt so promised. That night I delivered a little girl, 18" long and weighing 4lb 5oz. The doctors could not find a cause as to why this happened. This was the hardest thing I ever had to do.

Till this day, there is not one moment of the day that passes I don't think about our little girl. We are trying to conceive again and hope that I will have that great feeling again of being pregnant.
