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 have 3 gorgeous sons but I have 2 angels watching us.
I had my first son trouble free, and when he was 18 months old we decided to go for baby #2. It took around 9 months and everything seemed fine but deep down I had a bad feeling. I went for a 9-week u/s to check dates but I had a blighted ovum. I had a D&C the following week.
We waited 3 months before trying again and it took a year and we fell pregnant with son #2. As soon as he was born we decided to start trying again. He was 10 months old when I feel pregnant. Once again I had a bad feeling but tried not to let it worry me. I went for a dating scan at 10 weeks only to find out our baby had died the week before.
Sometimes when I close my eyes I can still picture the baby just lying there motionless. I had a D&C the following day. Two months later we fell pregnant with son # 3. We are currently trying for baby #4.
miscarriageI am 43 years old and married for 3 years. I didn't think I could get pregnant. I am never late with my period. I was supposed to get my period Feb. 5th. On Feb.6th I took a pregnancy test, not even thinking that I would be pregnant. The test came out POSITIVE! I couldn't believe it.
I called my husband and he thought I was pulling his leg. He was soooo happy. I called my girlfriend who just had twins and wanted her to call her doctor (high risk) to try and get me in. He told me to come right in. He did a urine test and a sonogram. The doctor told me I was pregnant! We saw the sac! The doctor said my levels were low and he wanted me to go for a blood test the next day to see if my levels go up. I went for the test yesterday morning. The doctor called me last night and told me that the levels were lower and that I would miscarry! So I have to sit here and wait! I don't understand!
I have an appointment on Monday so he can see what is going on. I asked him if my levels will go up and he said no. He wants me to go for blood work tomorrow just so I can see that my levels will not go up. I am really confused!
am I dreamingWhen I found out I was pregnant my husband and I were overjoyed. We got pregnant on the first try and thought we were dreaming. I couldn't believe it, so I took 6 positive tests.
The day I went for my first bloodwork to confirm the pregnancy, I noticed some blood while I was at the lab.
An hour later I went to the bathroom to find the most horrifying sight. There was a ton of blood with stringy clots. It was heavy.
That night I called my MD to tell her what happened and she confirmed that it was a miscarriage and my blood levels were very low so it may have happened a few days before.
It's been 3 days, I can't stop thinking about it or crying and wondering if it's something I did wrong. I know that there is a reason for everything but it dosen't make it easier.
We want to try again and the whole thing has brought my husband and I closer through this tough time. Hopefully time eases the pain.
my little angelsI had been sterilized after having my daughter at aged 21 when I was experiencing post natal depression. I have 2 children aged 16 and 12. Before I had my son I had a miscarriage at about 8 weeks, then after my son I had another at 12 weeks. My son was born at 28 weeks and weighed 2 lb. He is fine now.
In May 2006 after being with my partner for 10 years we decided to have the reversal operation to have more children as my partner doesn’t have any and I would love more children. We caught straight away and in June 2006 my body wasn’t well enough and I lost the baby at 5 weeks. Then in December 2006 we caught again and I just knew and it was the best present anyone could have given us. We had a first scan to make sure the baby was not in the tubes and all was fine apart from not being able to see the baby so I was asked to come back 10 days later for another scan. We saw the baby then and the heartbeat and were overjoyed and so happy all was going well.
Then at 8 weeks I had a slight spotting of pink on a tissue. I went to the drs and was booked for another scan. The dr said my womb was closed and it was a good sign; we saw the baby’s heartbeat again and all was fine. Later that day I had a very high temp and caught some viral infection that was going around and the next day started bleeding again, this time it was near black. I went to the hospital and they booked me in for a scan the following Monday and again said all is well, the womb is closed, and there is no new blood.
Every step I took to the hospital that day I knew something was so wrong. I had my scan and the woman took longer than usual and just huffed and then tutted. She had confirmed my fears; my baby had died and they called it a silent miscarriage; so peaceful and with me. I was booked in for a d & c the following morning to let them take my baby away. I am so sad and empty and I miss my baby soooo much. That was 3 days ago and the hurt is unbearable. I am going to try again.
I know there must have been something wrong because he died but it doesn't make it easier, my partner is trying to be strong for me and I know he's hurting so much too. I'm scared it will happen again. There are many people close to each of us that have passed away and I know our baby is being looked after by them, which makes it a little easier, and someday I will see him too. My little angel must have been needed for a greater purpose but he'll always be in my heart just like the others and no one will ever be able to take away the pain I feel for my little angels.
A perfect plan????In July 2004, I found out I was pregnant. It was an unplanned pregnancy as I was getting married in four months. I had mixed feelings about being pregnant but my fiancé (now husband) was thrilled. Once the shock wore off I was thrilled and gave birth to a beautiful baby boy in March 2005.
I wanted another baby right away but my husband wanted to wait until we had a house and he got a promotion. When all that came together we decided to start trying in the new year.
Being that my first pregnancy was such a surprise it felt good to be planning this one. We found out in the end of Jan that we were expecting number 2. We were so excited.
I felt different then my first pregnancy but chalked it up to "every pregnancy is different". Then on Fri. Feb 2nd I had some spotting in the morning but no cramps. I was 5 1/2 weeks pregnant. I called a couple of girlfriends and they said it was probably because we had sex Thurs. night but to call the Dr. I called the Dr. and she said it could go either way and if it was leading to a miscarriage there was nothing I could do.
Around 3 pm I had some bad cramps and tried to remain positive. At 4 pm I stood up to go use the bathroom before going home and I could feel something going on. When I got into the bathroom and sat down there was lots of blood and stuff. I was hysterical on the phone with my husband and then my Dr.
It has been 5 days but I am still numb. I don't even know if I want to try again for fear of going through this hell again.
Good Luck to all of you in your journeys.
