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.

Pregnancy at 47

Hi, I have just had a miscarriage. I was about 7 weeks pregnant, first time pregnant aged 47.
Very upset at the moment. I bled heavily with the miscarriage, was scary, thought I might need to go to hospital, but managed not to.
Was a huge shock to find out that I was pregnant after many years of trying. Neither me nor my husband thought it could happen.
It was a "blighted ovum" where the fetus doesn't develop, and this showed on a scan at about 6 weeks. I was told I would miscarry, and just had to go home and wait for it to happen.
Very upsetting, cried all that day, don't feel many people understand, only someone who has been through it.
People mean well, but often say insensitive things, It makes me angry.
My sympathy goes out to all women in a similar situation, it's hard to cope with.



Here I am...Last week I heard some of the most joyous words of my life, "Congratulations, you are expecting".
This is my 3rd pregnancy. My other two were healthy children with no undue complications, other than my ex-husband and I had not planned them, they just happened and are very much loved. Then the divorce came a short time after my daughter was born & I thought that that would be the most painful day of my life. I turned out to be all right though & found a wonderful man who loves me & both of my children. We have been together for three years & recently engaged. Then on our anniversary this year, he whispered in my ear, "Let's just make a baby", something we have been discussing for the last year. We were not using anything but condoms at the time, so I agreed.

Then last week I heard those joyous words. The same week I found out I am going to have a baby, my best friend delivers her first. I was happy when I heard that, I made a joke about it.
Monday morning as I got up for work, I noticed I was spotting, so I immediately called the midwives I have used for the past 7 years. The first one I talked to just told me, "It is very early in your pregnancy. If you are going to lose the pregnancy, there is nothing we can do. Come in for an HcG test twice this week".

I went back to bed and stopped bleeding & went in for a blood test Tuesday. I stopped bleeding on Monday night. Than again on Wednesday afternoon, I was bleeding again. So I called my midwives once more. I got told the same thing. I stopped bleeding a few hours later. I never got any advice on what to do. I never experienced anything like this with my other pregnancies. Today when I started bleeding, I called another clinic, begging for an appointment. They set me up quickly with their best OB.

She did everything she could to make sure I was OK. She called the clinic where I went before and asked about my HcG levels & when she was told how low they were, she asked why I hadn't been notified. She did a TVUS on the spot & had to break the bad news to me, there was no heartbeat. She vows to stick through this with me, even though she has never met me before today. Even promising me that she will give it her all to see me through my next healthy pregnancy.

I am just going through the most difficult part right now...I knew I was pregnant for a little over a week & now that baby is gone. I already fell in love with that baby & everything it could have been. Hopefully, the grief process moves quickly & I will be able to enjoy life again & look forward to conceiving again. Right now I feel as if I am on auto-pilot for my fiancee and children.
The hardest part? Being happy for my best friend & her newborn. With all the trouble I have been having this week, I have not made it over to see her newborn & now I don't think I will be able to, for at least another few weeks.


I'm hurting

I had a scan today, I knew something was wrong. I had been bed ridden since getting a positive result. I was constantly sick, losing weight and always sleeping. The doctor says, "This is normal". I knew it wasn't, something was wrong!

If I had been bleeding and passed the baby out it would of been easier to accept but seeing a baby on a scan and being told the baby has been dead for 3 and a half weeks breaks my heart. Tomorrow I have to have it removed, I was only 10 weeks pregnant. I feel alone, depressed and suicidal. It's like I suffered all these weeks for nothing. I'm hurting beyond belief, I don't even like being me no more!


My Little Angel

I first found out I was pregnant on labor day. I saw my little angel at 4, 6, and 8 weeks through an ultrasound. I graduated from my RE back to my obgyn. I found out on October 27th that my little angel stopped developing around 9 weeks. I am heartbroken, devastated, and lost of what to do next. My little angel will always be in our hearts since we did not know if it was a boy or girl we named our angel Levi Diane.



I went to the doctor yesterday for my first sonogram. We thought I was about 10 weeks along but I only measured about 6 weeks and 3 days. After reviewing the sonogram, the doctor informed me that the yolk sac seemed to be collapsing. After she told me this, I just sat there. I didn't ask any questions. Now that I have digested this information, I realize that I am very confused. Am I losing my baby? Or is the baby already gone? I just feel very in the dark about this. My husband is very supportive but I can see it is having a major strain on him as well. The doctor should be calling me in a few hours. I have had no signs of miscarriage, other than this empty feeling in my heart from not knowing what is going on. Prayers would be greatly appreciated :)
