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 found out I was pregnant on August 21, 2006 - the day before my husband’s birthday. We were so happy. We now have a 9-year-old daughter and a 4-year-old daughter. All four of us new from day one this baby was the little boy we had been waiting for to complete our family. Having my first miscarriage in July of 04 I began to worry right away. The miscarriage in July of 04 I was about 12 weeks and didn’t know I was pregnant. It took us from July 04 to August of 06 to get pregnant again. I called my doctor on August 22, 2006 to schedule my first appointment, which was on September 12, 2006.
Everything was going ok until August 30,2006 when I started spotting. I called the doctor and went in that day. The doctor was busy so I had to see a nurse who said there was nothing they could do for me. She put me on disability until my appointment on September 12. Go home and rest, no sex and stay off your feet, is what I was told. I went to my appointment and had a sonogram. They found a heartbeat and everything was ok.
On September 30, 2006 I started bleeding heavy. This time I thought my pregnancy was over. Went to the doctor again and the baby was still there and the heartbeat looked great. Everything went OK for several weeks. The spotting and bleeding had stopped. I saw the doctor again October 21, 2006. This time my husband and daughters were there to hear the heartbeat. We were all smiles the rest of the day we heard the heartbeat and were sure everything was going to be OK.
On November 3, 2006 I started bleeding again - this time so much I went to the hospital. We had another sonogram and saw the baby’s heart still beating and my cervix was still closed. I stayed at the hospital until midnight. The doctor came in with words that pierced my heart: “prepare yourself for a miscarriage,” and then he sent me home. When I got up the next day I didn't feel good at all and at about 11 am the contractions started and progressed to be very painful. I kept passing blood clots and the pain got worse. I went to the bathroom at 3:15 pm and a large clot was passed and then my baby boy was delivered. I screamed, cried and blamed myself.
To see how fully developed my son was. He had arms, legs, fingers, toes, his ribs were developed, his scalped was over half way developed all he needed was to stay in mommy to get his little organs stronger to survive outside of the womb. He was 6 1/2 cm long and weighed 4 ounces. We named our son angel and put him to rest on November 10, 06. I was told after 12 wks to have a miscarriage is very uncommon. I was 17 1/2 weeks pregnant when I lost my son. We will try again but until I have the baby in my arms that is when I will know the baby is safe. Angel will be in our hearts forever and will never be forgotten. God needed our angel to complete his perfect bouquet. And angel will be waiting at heavens gates for me when I get there.
pregnant after 4 miscarriagesHello there. I hope my story may encourage you. I am 44 and pregnant again after four miscarriages. I had them in fairly quick succession over a period of 18 months and then didn't get pregnant again for a year. We were so delighted to find I was! Of course it is hard going through the stage we are at in the first trimester ( I am nearly 8 weeks now) but as we pass each of the times we lost our previous babies, hope wells up again. If any of you out there are in terrible distress and shock, may I reassure you that the feelings though aweful and very intense will not last for ever and you will feel a lot more yourself after a few weeks and almost fine after a few months
My LossIn a strange way I have found reading your experiences very helpful. It will be a week tomorrow since I lost my baby. I was 11 weeks pregnant and starting bleeding, after contacting the doctor he told me not to worry that this can happen. Over the weekend the bleeding would subside then start again. Last Monday I had an appointment for a scan where they found there to be a baby with a heart beat, but the baby was only measuring at 6 weeks. I was so shocked as I hadn't expected there to be anything, thinking I had already lost the baby. I could sense the midwife was worried but was told it was a positive sign, but the heart beat was very slow and I was to keep an open mind. We seemed to had gone 10 steps back seeing the scan that day. My husband and I went home and that evening the bleeding got so bad, we rushed to the hospital to be told that what I thought was the baby passing was actually only a blood clot. I spent that evening in hospital losing a lot of blood. The following morning I had another scan, the baby was gone. I had to go for a D and C. The hardest part for my husband was having to tell my 5 year old daughter that our baby had gone to heaven - she so was so upset. You think why me, but finding this site makes you realise what a common thing miscarriage is - I always thought it happens to other people not me. Today is not a good day for me - I am feeling very emotional. Both my husband and I are very keen to try again, but there will always be the thought - "what if" - but you have to be positive.
