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.

seven weeks


At the age of forty-one I got pregnant for the first time. I hadn't even been sure I could get pregnant. I had never been so happy, then I went to my first doctors appointment to have an ultrasound to find out that there is no heart beat. At this point I was about seven weeks pregnant. devastation. Can I get pregnant again?

miscarriage at 14 weeks

Hi, I had a m/c at 14 weeks. I'd had slight bleeding & spotting (pinkish & brown in colour) for nearly 2 weeks before this happened. I had a scan at the early pregnancy unit when I was 13 weeks (7 days after the bleeding started) and I was told everything was OK. The baby had a strong heartbeat and was moving around - I even got a picture. I was quite relieved. However a week later I woke up having waves of abdominal cramps every 30 seconds. I knew immediatley what was happening, I was having contractions - I was devastated. 45 mins later I gave birth to my tiny baby, still completely inside the amniotic sac. I was very distraught and very sad, more for the baby as I believe I did something to cause this. I held the baby and later decided to bury it in the garden under a newly planted miniature rose bush - this was my baby, part of me, I had to treat it with the utmost care & respect. This was now 7 weeks ago and although I will never forget & never get over what happened I am at least coping with it. There are times where I still break down and feel very sad and there is not a day that goes by when I don't think about it. I'm trying to desperately to get pregnant again but I have not been successful. I keep doing tests (the last one being today) but they have all been negative. I have not yet had a period either so I think my body must be really messed up. I hope I can get pregnant again soon and have a successful pregnancy - I know I'll be so excited when I get the positve test at last but I also know I'll be quite scared. Thank you for listening. x x

Our Loss

I have a 2 year old son named Brady. All I wanted was a little sister or brother for him. I was so excited when I found out I was pregnant on the first try insince Brady took 8 months to concieve! I went for my ultrasound when I was just 5 weeks and they said they see the sac. I went for another ultrasound and they said they see the baby it's measuring normal but I'll have to come back because they were not to sure if they can see a heartbeat. The day before my next ultrsound I was spotting. then I was spotting bright red and I new something was wrong. I went for an ultrasound and we saw no baby just the fluid that was empting out. I ran to the bathroom crying and then the blood started to come. I had to get 2 d&c's beacuse they didn't get it all out the first time they said. Like one wasn't hard enough! I was told I was 9 weeks and 5 days but the baby was only about 6 weeks. I could not believe that it was happening to me! I'm 29 healthy, in shape ect. Now I know it can happen to anyone and it happens a lot! Now I am more scared than ever to have another one because I know that you can miscarry at anytime! I thought by the 14 week mark you were in the clear, but after reading these stories now I know otherwise. I have to keep up the hope that I will have a healthy pregnancy again. Good Luck to everyone out there going through a miscarriage. It's the single most hardest thing I have ever been through.

Pain with Miscarriage

I had a miscarriage 2 weeks ago. I had back pain a week prior to the M/C but it is continuing to get worse. I called my OB and she prescribed Tylenol with Codine which is not helping. What should I do/

I knew something was wrong

I was so very excited when I became pregnant this month. My husband and I have waited for years to become parents. I have a genetic disorder and many doctors had scared me into not having a child. I recently saw a new ob/gyn who said that since my disorder didn't affect me then why would I worry? Just go for it! So we did. I'm 38 and was more worried about down syndrome than anything else. I got pregnant after 3 months of trying and was so excited. I went to the doctor right away to confirm. He said he normally doesn't see pregnant women until week 7 but he would see me because of my risk factors. I was assumed to be 5 weeks or so but my hcg levels were low. I felt flushed, crampy, and kind of like when your period is imminent for a week. I tried to keep positive but I was having brownish and pinkish discharge for a few days before the bleeding started. I passed a clot going to the bathroom and knew it was over. Doing research now I realize that 70-80% of all fertilized eggs are not normal and viable. I'm shocked but the more people I talk to about it the more prevalent I guess it really is. I just really hope I don't have a pattern of miscarriage, that my husband and I can have a healthy baby. We're going to try after my next cycle. Good news is that I can get pregnant I guess. You can't believe how attached you can get in a couple of weeks. I'm so sad. It is really a helpless feeling to lose the pregnancy. It's shocking when you see the clotting and the blood. It's very scary. I hope this helps someone else going through this. I feel for every woman this has ever happened to.
