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 am so angry!
aprx 2 weeks ago, I was having this unbearable pain in my left leg- it was a intense tingling numbing feeling just above my knee (not normal). I went to the emergency room and they gave me percosets. I went to my obgyn the next day and expressed my feelings of how I am against taking the percosets and asked if there is anything I should do. She just pushed me aside and repeatly said "if you are in that much pain, take it- but go see a neurologist. What do you know, two weeks later I have a horrible painful miscarriage. The baby was dead for two weeks. My obgyn may not have been able to stop the miscarriage, but i would feel a little bit better about this if she actually gave a damn. I am not only devistated but P.O.'ed.
our little manIt has been nearly 3 years since the loss of our baby boy and the days never get any easier. I was 30 weeks pregnant and went to have a check up at the doctor, 2 days after my 21st birthday. My doctor could not feel any movements and ordered me an ultrasound.
The ultrasound showed that the baby had no heart beat. It was like being hit with a mack truck. everything i had thought was going to happen fell apart in an instant.
My partner was not that helpfull at the time, we were so young and he didnt want me to have the baby in the first place.
He rushed to the hospital and was devestated by what he was told. We had to return the next morning at 7am and i was induced.
I gave birth to my dead son 8 hours later. It was without a doubt, the worst experience of my life. There was no explanation for what had happened.
We named our little man and had a christening at the funeral. we go to visit him regularly and take him a new toy for every one of his birthdays.
I have always been a big believer in fate. At the time it was hard to see why such a tragic thing could happen to me and what the purpose was. However my boyfriend came home with me that day of the ultrasound and has never left my side. We got married last year and I am now 18 weeks pregnant with our 2nd child.
Our son bought us togethjer and we will always be gratefull for his short lived presence in our lives. He made us realise our love for each other and we are happier in our relationship than ever before.
we are due on the 16th of February next year. It is hard to think positive and i wake every morning thankful that i made it through the night. we are taking one day at a time but all ultrasounds are great up till this point.
When i look back at my last pregnancy, doing it alone with hardly any support, I never really saw the end.. the happy family. I never imagined me with a baby. But this time it feels different i can see my husband and i and our baby in my future.
there has not been 1 day that has passed that i have not thought of my baby boy. it still brings me to tears to think of his little feet and hands, so small. I know that i have my husband and think that is the reason our baby didnt survive, but I would trade him for my son in a heart beat!
People tell you that it gets easier............. it doesnt.
you just get used to the heart ache.
All we can do is remember our babies in our hearts forever. That is the only way we can be their mums.
My two Baby boysMy first pregnancy was my thirteen year old girl. She was born premature but very healthy. She came home fine. My second pregnancy was my son, he was born and he lived for seven days after he was born and he passed away froma lung condition. I was so dipressed.
But then a year later, me and my husband concived a little baby girl. She was born perfectly fine with no complications.
Four years later, i find out i am pregnant again with a little boy. When i am three months pregnant, i have the baby. But the baby didn't make it. It was such a hard time for me. But now i still have my thirteen year old and my five year old.
Worst week ever...I just suffered a miscarriage three days ago...well, actually it took three days of agonizing physical and emotional pain. I was only six weeks but I am so overwhelmed by the loss.
I'm 37 and it took my husband and I a long time to conceive. I'm feeling like it might never happen again, like this was our chance. Intellectually I know the probability of conceiving again is high but emotionally I just can't believe it.
Everyone keeps telling me that the important thing to focus on is that I CAN get pregnant but I still feel the loss of this baby. Anyway, just needed to get that out there and honor the life that grew inside me even if just for a little while.
Our Lost Little AngelWell this is the second time I have had to tell such a horror story in a very short period of time. My husband and I lost our first precious child back in May 2006. That was really devastating to us, a young newly married couple. So it was extremely exciting to see that pregnancy test three months later in August saying we were going to blessed with a beautiful child!
But like all the unfortunate stories I've read here this one doesn't have a happy ending. About a week after I found out I was pregnant I began spotting, I panicked and called the doctor who told me to come in. I went in and they had me take the HPT and drew blood and sent me home, I thought wait what about the issue of me spotting, but it was never addressed, but I went home and waited to hear from the doctor, it was a tortuous day to say the least.
I finally heard from the doctor late that night that I was pregnant and that I needed to take it easy as I was at a higher risk since I had experienced one miscarriage. So I took it easy that weekend and the spotting stopped. It kind of gave me a false sense of security because that Monday I began to bleed, and early Tuesday I lost my baby. It was SO hard to know that I had once again failed to carry the precious life within me.
I feel like I have let my husband down so much and it scares me so much that I will never be able to carry a baby to term. I do know that next time I plan to push harder for the Doctor to address any issues I have questions on. And I know that I will never forget my second beautiful child, I know just like the first I will see it in heaven.
Momma loves you precious and will always remember you!
