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 husband & I were the happiest parents to know that I was pregnant after trying for a year. I would wake up each morning so blessed & happy. My pregnancy started in Jan 07.

Since the beginning I had bleeding. I went to see the ob for an ultrasound and everything was fine with me and my baby. On April 2nd I went to the restroom at work & I had heavy bleeding. I thought I was having a m/c, but I wasn't. I had another ultrasound done and everything looked fine. Until April 27 I was on my way to the ob office for an appt I got off train that I take to work and I started leaking fluid and I knew it wasn't pee so when I called my husband he told me call the ob I went to the ob office and they checked me and my amniotic sac had broken at this time.

I didn't know how serious the situation was until my husband & I arrived at the hospital and I had to go to labor & delivery; that's when it hit me: Iím losing my baby boy. The baby's heartbeat stopped a few hours after and then labor & delivery began. I delivered a stillborn at 17weeks the following day. My husband & I are so devastated. I feel like someone came and ripped my happiness out of my heart.

Thanks to the support of my husband & family Iím healing and getting strong. I need to stay positive so I can try to conceive in a few months. With Godís will I have hope & faith I will get pregnant soon and have a full term delivery with a healthy baby. One thing I will always remember until I die is my first child Marco Angelo; he will always be my angel.

I question myself each day why? And there isnít an answer. I can only think God is the answer and he knows why my child was taken from me.


I had no symptoms

After almost 2 years of trying to conceive, my husband and I found out they we were pregnant on April 22. I was feeling great, on cloud nine. I had some of the usually 1st trimester signs, tender breasts, tiredness, but other than that I was fine.

Well, last Friday I went in for a routine ultrasound only to discover that my baby wasn't alive. There was no heartbeat or blood flow. I was devastated. I was so upset they just let me leave from a back door. All weekend I had to live with the fact that I was carrying a baby that was not going to be born. Yesterday I ended up having a d & c.

Now I just feel so depressed and empty. I can't stop crying. The doctor told me that we could start trying again in 2 months. That seems so long from now. I am so afraid that the same thing will happen again and I don't want to go through that. No woman should have to experience this pain.

I am trying to be positive but I have so many unanswered questions. I need support from others that have experienced this!


No one prepared me about seeing it

No one told me what to expect when it passed. My baby was six weeks old.

My ob/gyn didn't tell me what to expect, the er doctor didn't tell me what to expect. I was sent home after er visit.

I wished I were more prepared for "her". I wish someone told me it would be solid. Thank god the sac was wrapped still and I couldn't see it.

Doctors should have told me what to expect. I was scared.


our first try

Me and my husband found out in March we were expecting our first baby. All the usual emotions happiness, worry, and excitement overcame us. I suffered really, really badly with sickness and it was all day, but everyone told me that this was a sign of a healthy strong baby.

Since day 1 I had always had a feeling that something wasn't right, although there were never any signs to make me think this way, perhaps its just female intuition.
At nine weeks and 1 day I had my first scan, my husband couldn't make it so my mum came. My husband and I said that it was the second scan that was most important for him to be at where we could see if we were having a boy or girl. When I was being scanned the radiographer began asking me if I had any problems, signs of bleeding etc. I hadn't but I knew instantly something was wrong. She told me what she was seeing and that my baby didn't have a heart beat.

The baby was the size of a 9-week pregnancy; I was 9 weeks and 1 day. The shock didn't come for a few minutes until I realised I would have to go home and I was no longer pregnant.

I went in for surgery the next day to have the baby removed. That was a week ago now and although I still think about things a lot I am doing OK. We talked for hours, probably days to come to terms with it. I know its what everyone says but I believe this was my bodyís way of telling me something was wrong. I wish so badly that there was nothing wrong but after reading pages on this website it helped me realise that no matter what you do or don't do if its going to happen then it will happen.

We are going to wait a while now before trying again, we are both young and not in a rush really. I need to be ready both physically and emotionally if I am going to go through that again. My husband also found it very difficult, as he had to watch me in pain and go through surgery, he felt completely helpless. I am so scared that it will happen again, or something worse will happen next time and I may never have children of my own. I suppose the only way is to be strong together and try again and see.

My only advice to anyone who wants it really is to be strong together, time is a great healer.


Don't understand

I went to my first doctor's appointment on May 3. The doctor told me that I was 6 weeks pregnant and that I had a blood clot behind the placenta. She assured me that everything would be fine, and that I would continue to see some bleeding. She said as long as I did not see heavy bleeding or clotting that I should be fine.

I went to my first prenatal appt. on May 14 and a different doctor told me that my baby was dead. The ultrasound technician could not find a heartbeat. This is the second time I miscarried. It took me over two years to get pregnant with this baby.

I am really upset, and hurt. I did everything to ensure that this baby would be alright but yet I feel like I failed.
