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.

My First Pregnancy
My husband and I desperately want a baby. We were on Clomid for four months and I finally got pregnant!
Then at 6 weeks they did an ultrasound and saw the fetal pole but my blood levels weren’t as high as they should have been (they weren’t doubling), then just three days ago I went back for another ultrasound and I should be 9 weeks but baby is still measuring 6 weeks with no heartbeat, and my blood levels are going down.
So now Monday I am going in for a D & C which I am so terrified. But my doctor has put my mind at ease a lot. I really like her and trust her and she has given me some hope by saying that second miscarriages are not that common. So someone pray for me.
Many Unanswered QuestionsA couple of months ago after deciding to stop taking the pills after 4 years of it, I started to feel kind of different…started vomiting, had a change of appetite and of course mood swings.
So, I told my fiancé that we should buy a home pregnancy test and we did. I have taken several before and they each came out negative… until I took this particular one and it was positive.
We were so excited and decided to call everyone. I made an appointment with my primary care physician then she referred me to an OBGYN.
So on that particular Wednesday morning of July 18, 2007 I was so excited about my first appointment. When I got there she decided to do an ultrasound and discovered that she couldn't find a heartbeat. So, she sent me to the hospital for a second opinion, and they couldn't find one either. I didn't even have bleeding or cramping or other signs of a miscarriage.
I have had a lot of unanswered questions to what could of have happened. My fiancé has been very supportive of me in this matter and most important God and my family have been there for me. We are going to try again in a couple of months, so please pray for us.
Our First PregnancyMy husband and I were excited to get pregnant a couple months into our efforts. After finding out through a HPT, I immediately felt nauseous!!
Around the beginning of my eighth week, my pregnancy symptoms sort of went away. A couple days later, I was going to the bathroom and saw pink on the tissue. I called the doctors office and got an appointment for the next day. The doctor performed a vaginal exam - everything was normal - the cervix was not dilated. Then, they drew blood and send me for an ultrasound. The ultrasound revealed a low fetal heart rate (62 bpm). My doctor recommended that I take progesterone and that it may possibly help stabilize the fetus. The initial blood results were good, my hormone levels were at the correct count for the age of the baby.
Two days later, I went in for a follow up appt. Another pelvic exam - results still normal. More blood drawn. Scheduled a follow up ultrasound for a few days away.
Got the blood tests back the next day. Hormone levels had decreased significantly and the doctor stated that the baby had either died already or was in the process of doing so.
I'm still spotting but no major clots. I have another follow up appointment this week to find out if I'll need a D&C procedure performed.
It's been a tough few days to say the least!
Loss at 10 weeksAt the beginning of the summer my husband and I were surprised to find out that we were expecting our third baby. This was shocking, but very happy, news. My husband has been brave enough to watch our two girls this summer while I am away finishing my masters degree for six weeks.
This week, I was nine weeks and six days pregnant and began discharging. I was scared and surprised because this has never happened to me in pregnancy before.
At the ER an ultrasound confirmed that I had an eight-week-old fetus with no heartbeat. They sent me home and 24 hours later, I had a miscarriage.... away from home, friends and family. It has been so sad to go through this alone. Worst of all, I fear that I will never be able to conceive again.
This is such a sad time for us all.
My miscarriage StoryHi my name is Christina, and on May 25th I found out I was pregnant with our second child. We were a little afraid, because we just had our son On Nov 27th 2006. So he was only 6 months at this time.We were also very excited, and I was elated to be able to know that I would have another little one growing inside of me. I took 2 Hpt's one was the clear blue easy digital and it said pregnant, then the next was an ept + or- test and it had a +.
On June 8th I had my first ob appointment and he sent me to do an ultrasound. The ultrasound tech asked if I was sure I was pregnant because she didn't see a sac, I told her yes. Then she said I must only be 2 to 3 wks pregnant instead of 6.This worried me right fof the bat. I
I did feel different then when I was first pregnant with my son. I had no real symptoms except for being tired. Everyone told me not to worry I was just earlier then expected. Then on June 11th (I will never forget that day) I woke up and went pee. When I wiped there was pink on the it. I woke my husband up and called the dr. He was not in till 10 so me, my husband and my son went to the ER. They told me I was having a threatened abortion. Then they did an exam.
After that I waited to get my rogham blood since I have - blood type, and that is when I started to bleed so much. I didn't even bleed that much after my son was born. I couldn't' believe that this was happening . It still hits me every now and then when I see pregnant women. But I know that I'm blessed with my son, and that it happened so early on, before there was even a heartbeat or anything.
