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.

I didn't know that I was pregnant when I had a miscarriage. I'm always irregular in my menstruation. I ignored that I did not get my period for 6 months. Yes, I had pregnancy tests; 4 times and all negative. Thatís when I decided to ignore that.
I didn't have any kind of symptoms at all, only breast tenderness, which I thought was because I was soon expecting my period. But I was wrong till this month I thought I got my period but it was my surprise that it wasn't, but a sadly an unexpected miscarriage.
I was scared and confused till' I went to the E.R. and knew what happened.
my baby justiceI found out I was pregnant on Jan.2, 2007. I was so excited. My husband and me have a 2 year old. After he was born we wanted to wait awhile so I went on the depo shot. I stopped getting it in March 2006. We wanted a new addition to our family, so of course when the test came back positive we where excited.
Well, because my periods where never normal they sent me for an ultra sound on Feb.12 2007 to determine my due date. They told me I was 5 1/2 weeks. I knew that couldnít be right because you have to be 10 days to test positive on an at home pregnancy test. That was when I realized something was wrong. Than the ultrasound technician told me they didnít see a heartbeat. They said donít worry it may just be too soon. Still I knew I was at least 8 weeks at the time because I know when I ovulated. So they told me to come back in 10 days that would have been Feb. 22 2007 on Feb. 20
I started to bleed so I went to the hospital and they confirmed my hCG levels were dropping and sent me home. I cried and felt hurt and angry. At about 11:30 on Feb. 21 I went to the bathroom and there was a huge gush of blood than a good-sized sac; it hurt like hell. But if that wasnít bad enough I wouldnít stop gushing blood and I got dizzy so I had to call 911 at the hospital. They had to pull the rest of the sac out. They said I was at least 10 weeks and they think it was genetic and the baby died around 5 or 6 weeks and my body kept nourishing the placenta.
I am so hurt and all the doctors say at least you have a healthy child. I am thankful for that but it doesnít take away the way I feel about my loss. That was my precious little Justice and I miss my baby. But I know someday when I cross over I will get to meet my baby. Till than Iím not giving up hope and plan to try again a.s.a.p. and am praying for the best.
May god watch over my baby my family and everyone in my situation. Itís never easy, but never give up faith. Truly yours Mindy
My Angel.Hi my name is Denise, and these are some of the saddest stories I have ever heard. I was 17 years old when I got pregnant. I am now 18 years old, and my due was July 15,2007.
I got up at 12:00 A.M one morning hurting with small sharp pains at, then they gradually began to occur every 5mins, and the pains were getting worse, so thatís when I decided to go to the bath and that was when I realized I was probably having a miscarriage, because I was spotting blood. I was very scared at the time not knowing what to do, so I called the emergency room and told the RN about my problem, she told come in as soon as possible.
When I went back they ran tests and found out I had a miscarriage. It was most devastating news ever. When I went home I felt so alone and I felt the need to talk to someone but there was no one there, so the next day I called my boyfriend and told him. He became very upset about the ordeal, so he told me when it got later he would come to my house and sit with me. Later he did come and talk things out and he supported me so much after my miscarriage and I really loved him for that.
Some people think it is just something that happens, and that they can get over it right then, but you cannot if your baby meant anything to you. So my thing is you will never know how it feels until you've felt it yourself.
Trying to be positiveMy Husband and me have been trying for a baby for 3 years. To say it's going badly is an understatement. First we had an ectopic pregnancy in May 2004. I had my left tube removed along with a few brain cells! I decided to put this down as not to be, but would try again in 6 months. How wrong I was.
I was diagnosed with fibroids and had to have an operation, again 6 months down the line we started the whole fun process again. January 2007 I was pregnant again, we were so sure that nothing could go wrong this time. This was our time. Nevertheless at 9 weeks I started bleeding and another pregnancy ended.
For me it does not feel like losing a child, but more like losing the dream of what could be, each time we lose a little hope. That is not to say that we will give in, because our child is out there waiting, and I hope that one day soon our dreams will be realised.
Is It My FaultReading some of these stories is so upsetting. I can't believe how many people this happens to; itís not fare. I didn't even realize I was pregnant until I miscarried. I'm only 17 and I didn't have a clue what was happening to me, I lost my baby in the bath, I didn't know what to do, that was my child. I couldn't exactly throw her in the bin!
Would my boyfriend hate me? We'd been going out for 10months. I didn't know what to do Ė I couldn't believe it! I tried to kill myself! Itís all my fault. Obviously my attempt to kill myself failed, my boyfriend Ben couldn't understand why I had tried to kill myself! I couldn't tell him, I didn't want him to blame me. I couldn't leave my house for a month; I thought everyone was talking about me.
I'm still on anti-depressants now. The worst thing is that while that was happening to me my boyfriend had been cheating on me, hanging round with a 14 yr old girl. He's moved away now as I wouldn't take him back. I feel so alone. Why do bad things happen to good people? Was it my fault? I feel like such a failure! I'm so sorry.
