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.

5 months. baby will live for an hour or so
As i entered my 5th month of pregnancy everything was going fine, heartbeat, amniocentisis, my baby boy was healthy. I was experiencing alot of pain in my left side. i asked for a UTI exam and i had a urine infection. i was prescribed amoxicillin and i took it three times. i then started experiencing contractions. i went to the doctor and i opened up 3 centimeters in a matter of half an hour i was opened 6 centimeters. i was told my baby will live for about an hour or so but they couldnt save him because i was only 20 weeks. Sooooo sad i love my baby.
Our Precious MiracleMy fiancé and I found out we were pregnant August 15, 2011. It was a surprise but a wanted one. We had an ultrasound at 9 weeks to make sure the due date was correct since I was on birth control when we got pregnant. We saw the little jelly bean growing perfectly with a heart beat of 176 bpm. Our 11 week appointment was coming up and I couldn't help but think something was going to go wrong. I was so worried that I had dreams that we went into our appointment and we would hear no heartbeat. Sadly, my dream came true. On October 3rd at our 11 week appointment there was no heartbeat. We had an emergency ultrasound and found out the baby died shortly after our first ultrasound. I was so devastated that all I wanted to do was go home and sleep it all away. They wanted me to do a D&C right away but I couldn't, I just wanted to cling on to the hope that maybe they were wrong. But 3 days later I miscarried naturally, but had to have a D&C anyways just to make sure. Its been 7 weeks since I heard no heartbeat. Today I would be 18 weeks and 1 day pregnant and I cry everyday for our sweet baby angel. I am so thankful that I got to carry our precious miracle for 11 weeks and just pray that God will bless us with another one that we can carry to full term and raise in His name. It would make us be a little more patient until the time comes to where we get to hold our first precious miracle.
Peaceful SleepMy boyfriend and I were sixteen when I fell pregant, we'd been having sex for 3 months and had used condoms and everything, but the condom burst. We carried on thinking we couldnt get pregnant from one time. 12 weeks later I went for a check up at the hospital after not getting my period, this had happened before so I wasnt concerned, but my mum noticed I was eating a lot of strange things. She said one night I had the weird craving for boiled fish. The doctor said he couldnt find anything wrong with me but they decided to do an ultrasound just to make sure. when I saw the baby's little body on the scan I was overjoyed, I was relieved to know I wasnt gonna die and so excited at being a mum. I told my boyfriend and he was overjoyed too, in preparation we got an apartment just around the corner from where my parents lived, and everything was ready for our little girl. One night we were sat on the couch watching tv and feeling the baby kick when I started to get contractions. I thought that I would be ok but later that night my water broke, we went to the hospital the next morning and the doctor said I was most definately in labour and that there was nothng I could do to stop her coming. I was only 7 months into my pregnancy. When she was born I never got to hold her, she was taken into an incubator and hooked up to about 5 machines. One night when I had gone home we received a phone call saying that because she was born so early she had a hole in her heart, and that there wasn't long left, she needed a heart transplant, but there were no hearts for her. We drove to the hospital and got there to find the doctors and nurses standing over her incubator. We walked over and they told us that there was not long left and that we should have our last moments. They took her out of the incubator and we held her before the mahines started bleeping and we had to leave. The doctor came in an hour later and told us she was gone, we went in the room to see her, and she looked like she was in a peaceful sleep. I was so depressed for days afterwards and we sold all of the baby stuff. A year later we tried for another baby, and now we have twins, a boy and a girl, Lola Rose and Luke Alexander and they are 2, and i am pregnant with another baby girl. We have a happy family but the pain of our first child still lingers and I will never forget her peaceful face when she had died.
I was so sadI was 3 weeks pregnant..Everthing was going fine..one day morning I got up and saw spotting..rushed into the hospital..I had back ache and stomach cramping jus like periods..Bleeding increased.. cloats started going..the pain was only for an hour..Dr told that it is a miscarriage..had bleeding for 3 days..I was so sad..cried alot..Dr's opinion is if the fetus growth is not proper the body will reject it and its nothing to worry if you lose it in first trimester..it can be a chromosomal deffect which will not repeat it in the next time..Im praying to God for a healthy pregnancy..I believe,God is emptying my hand to give something better..
Moving oni've been trying to get pregnant for almost 1 year and finally my pregnancy test shows positive, me and my husband were super excited about it. However after 3 weeks when the fetus should be at around 7 weeks, I started bleeding and went for an ultrasound which showed the fetus is as small as 5 weeks but with heartbeat. Doctor said it may be slow developement or late ovulation and asked me to come back in 10 days. I was extremely depressed in these 10 days, there's continued bleeding and cramping, I went back to emergency for another 2 times within these 10 days and ultrasounds shown there's no growth and no heartbeat. I was broken down and crying non-stop, asking why me, why can't i have a healthy baby that I've pictured in my mind... My husband and my parents in law are all very supportive and comforted me by being there for me all the time. I am so touched by their love and feel like I should stop asking "Why me" but to move on...
After my check-up in 10 days, the fetus only grows from 0.04 to 0.05cm without any heartbeat, which confirmed miscarriage. I then had the missed abortion operation done the next day and now recovering from the lost.
Although I am still grieving over the loss, i really feel blessed to have a loving husband, family and friends who shows full support for me. Therefore now I try my best to move on and think positive...
I really hope that everyone will think positive if experiencing similar pregnancy loss, because greiving doesn't help the situation. All the best to you all!
