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.

my poor little angel


I was really excited to go to 12 week scan on 9th July '08 and all i could think was "Iím going to see my baby for the first time!!" when my husband had asked me that morning if i was nervous i had just assumed everything would be fine. Iím in my early 20's, Iím fit and healthy and this was my first pregnancy, surely nothing would go wrong. At the time miscarriage, to me, was something that happened to other people, i never thought it'd happen to me! Iíd always assumed that if i WERE going to miscarry i would bleed and be in pain, but as Iíd had neither of those i overlooked that possibility. At my scan the nurse turned to me and said "Iím very sorry but Iíve got some bad newsÖIím afraid your pregnancy isnít going to continue, i couldn't detect a heartbeat and the baby stopped growing at around 8 weeks...your baby has died" and then i just started crying uncontrollably and didn't stop crying for about an hour. I had been carrying my baby around for 4 weeks since it had died, how could i not have known? I was told Iíd had a Ďmissed miscarriageí. The nurse said that i could wait for my body to expel the baby naturally, but that it was likely to be a slow process giving that Iíd carried it for 4 weeks and nothing had happened in that time or I could have an ERPC. I chose the latter because now that i knew Iíd miscarried i wanted it all to be over as quickly as possible so that we could start trying again. I was so overwhelmed and just wanted everything to be normal again as soon as possible. Iíve kept my scan picture so Iíll never forget my baby and everyday since we found out Iíve thought about my little baby and cried, but I know there was nothing I could have done for it, poor thing. My husband and I both feel sadness for our lost baby but are really anxious to start trying again, and everyone has been really supportive towards us both which has helped us come to terms with it.

3rd pregnancy this year!

Hi, just thought i would write my story and hopefully get some advice. I find myself pregnant for the 3rd time since last July. The other two i both had what i now know as 'missed miscarriages' at 8 weeks. on the second m/c they carried out tests and found that the baby ( a lil girl), had 3 copies of one particular trisomey (22) and that was the reason i lost it. I firmly believe as the first one was a text book copy of the 2nd that that was the same reason the baby died. I am 42 and do have two older children but my partner and i of 8 yeasr would really like a baby of our own. I have just done another p/test and find myself really scared. When they carried out the test on the last m/c they rec. pre-natal screening and by coincendence i am due to go to the clinic this Tuesday. I do not even know if i should tell them i am pregnant as maybe they would say i should of waited for the results from the test, the docs have mentioned their could be a possibility my partner and i just cannot have babies together. Either way there is nothing they can do so i don't know if i shall just wait and see how far this goes, after losing 2 you almost expect to lose another! Anyway thats my story for now, if anyone is of similar circum. please could you reply. Thanks alot. I know i was probably mad to try soo soon, but there is nothing like losing a baby to make you want another straight away, i hope whoever is reading this understands??

miscarriage

I had a predating scan yesterday, i thought i was 9wks and 2 days pregnant, no baby was found, i was told it had probably died around 4 wks ago. I am devasted and cant stop crying. I am 38 and this would have been my first baby. My husband had a vasectomy reversal on the 29th Feb of this year and we thought it was a miracle when we conceived. I am now waiting for the miscarriage to take place. I feel like its the end of the world, maybe this was my only chance.
