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.

You Showed Me What Love Really Is
I am currently 15 years old, a freshman in High School. I was in Jr. High when I got pregnant, a lot of people in my school, outside of school, and people currently reading this will judge me for being that young. I got pregnant after going out with the guy for a year and a half. We broke up before I had the chance to really tell him, and once he did tell him, I told him I was getting an abortion, he believed it and didn't care. He went on as if nothing was wrong. I never wanted to get an abortion, and even being young that never crossed my mind. I wanted my baby, not because I wanted to "fill some void" or "feel unconditional love" like some people may think, but because once a baby is inside you, its hard to not love that tiny, precious, innocent thing inside of you. Walking around school everyday knowing everyone was talking about me, knowing my life would never be the same, was easy compared to what I was going to experience. I was walking around this past summer being 23 weeks into my pregnancy, and I went into preterm labor. I had to push, knowing that it would mean my son was no longer with me, I had to push and know my son would never walk or smile or cry or recognize me as his mother. I held my son in my arms and cried. Its been 9 months now since it happened and it still hurts everyday. When your child dies it teaches you what love really is. So to my baby son Ryan, you showed me what love really is.
Its hard, but I hope anyone good luck with every story, and every baby story because no matter how many weeks you are, that baby is yours and no one can take that from you. God bless
in an instantI was a senior in highschool when i learned that i was pregnant. I had just broken up with my boyfriend, the father, and didnt know what to do. We knew i could be pregnant the day it happened, but he had voiced his opinion on wanting me to get an abortion. Days passed and i finally decided to lie and say i got my period. I think its crazy with all the women that abort their child can decide in an instant that they arent ready to be mothers, because at 17 years old, in that instant upon discovering my pregnancy, i decided i was. I was so excited. i didnt tell anyone because it was, mine. like something so special that i wanted to hold on to as long as possible. I dont remember what day it was when i miscarried. I dont remember what i was wearing or what was playing on my ipod. I remember i was thinking about telling the dad, and then I remember crying, for days. I stopped going to school, i stopped everything. I am currently writing a paper on abortion for my last project in English. and i stumbled across this site of other brave women and their stories. Ill admit im a little biased when it comes to abortion only because i never got the choice. goodluck to everyone out there.
Cystic HygromaAs I was waiting for the results to appear on the test, my nerves were killing me. I was so excited and hoping for a positive result but was also ready if it was negative. I ran back to the bedroom and jumped on the bed where my husband lay and with a big smile on my face I told him the test was positive. The reaction on his face was shock and excitement. The following Monday we went to the doctor where my pregnancy was confirmed at 8wks. We were so excited. We went back for a second appointment at ten weeks where we got to see our precious little baby moving around in my stomach and we heard the heartbeat! Two weeks after (12wks) I was scheduled for a detailed ultrasound to make sure my baby was ok. Unfortunately not everything was fine. I was sent to a specialist that confirmed my baby had a Cystic Hygroma and the chances of my baby making it full term were extremely low and if I got to give birth my baby wouldnt live past the first week. The news hit me hard because I still had my hopes up that everything would be fine. The doctor gave the option of terminating the pregnancy but I couldn't make myself do that. I loved my baby so much and it hurt me that there was something wrong and I couldn't do anything to help. Weeks past and the doctor kept checking on my baby girl but every appointment I kept getting more and more bad news. Things were getting worse with her and my doctor kept asking me to think about terminating. As much as I hated the idea of terminating it hurt me more to see my baby suffering. Especially when I saw and heard how her heart was struggling to keep beating. Her little heart was fighting for her life but I knew and my doctor knew that she wasn't going to make it. After a lot of crying and talking with my husband we finally made the decision to terminate. It was by far the hardest choice I have ever had to make. But deep down I knew that I was ridding her of the pain she was in. I was 20wks pregnant when I was induced. I went into labor March 5, 2011 at 3am. She weighed almost two pounds. She was my first baby. I've missed her everyday since then. Although sometimes I do feel guilty because of the choice I made. I struggle everyday but I knw she's in a better place. Thinking that when the time comes me and my husband will try again helps me get through the days.
Terrible DayWhen I was 18 a week after my graduation I took a Pregnancy test and found out I was pregnant. I was so upset because first I didn't know what my family would think and second I had no clue who the father was. So i went to the doctors and found out I was 8 weeks. So i put two and two together and found out who the dad was and called and told him. Well a week after I told him I started to bleed really heavy at work and I got so worried. I left work and went home my doctor said all I could do was wait so I waited and the bleeding didn't stop then one day I had horrible cramps. Then It happened I was so depressed and my boyfriend at the time had no clue how to make me happy neither did my mother. My miscarriage led to my relationship ending and me to be in a depressed mood for months. Well now I have a new boyfriend and I am 7 months pregnant its been a bumpy scary pregnancy. I'm always making sure I am not doing anything to cause my little boy any harm. Sure i have my moments when I wonder what could have been but I'm just happy that I am pregnant again and hes healthy.
back and forth..waiting..i found out i was pregnant on february 22, between 4 and 5 weeks. at a 7 week ultrasound we saw a very strong heartbeat. two days later the doctor called saying she thinks im having a partial molar pregnancy and needed a 3d ultrasound. i was devastated. the 3d ultrasound 2 days after that showed twins in the same sac-one viable, one not. the doctor assured me this would be a vanishing twin and the healthy baby would be fine. then at 8 weeks, 4 days i started bleeding. Went to the er and the viable babys heart stopped. two days later i had a painful complete miscarriage. its been 4 days since then. im waiting to see if my hcg levels went down. im praying i only miscarried one twin but know its unlikely.
