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.

My husband and I have been married for 7 years and finally decided to try and have kids. I was 10 weeks along but the baby quit growing at 7 weeks. I am having a tough time emotionally. I feel very lost and empty but am trying to remain positive because things happen for a reason. I know I was meant to be a mother, I only hope it will happen again. What a great site to help cope.
heart breakI know a lot of people have gone through with losing a pregnancy, but I have had bad luck in a space of a 9 months.
You see I had been having fertility treatement as I wasn't ovulating so I had injections to help me. Anyway I was pregnant back in August and I was so excited so was my partner, we couldn't stop talking about it.
I was just 5 weeks when I found out the next day I had some brown discharge so I went to the hospital and scanned me. My pregnancy was ectopic in my ovary, I was gutted as we both really wanted it to be right.
So at the beginning of September I had to have an injection to abort the pregnancy. Luckily when it finaly came out I was at home. We decided we wanted to try again this time it was in the right place I was a bit aprehensive but I thought it was going really well. I was 7 weeks when I stared to bleed Ii had a scan and thats when they told me my baby had stoped growing at 5 half weeks and they couldn't find a heart beat.
When the bleeding got heavier I was scared. I prayed to keep my baby but I had lost my baby, I had to scan the following week and thats when they told me I had no baby. At that point my heart broke in to tiny pieces. I am inconsoalable. I have just gone back to work.
I do feel empty as I have wanted my baby so much nothing really helps. At least I don't blame myself although I can't really understand why it happend.
We will try again but not yet.
No mother ever forgets.....About a month after the birth of my daughter in July 2004, I found out I was pregnant, and even though I had very mixed emotions about this, I was definetly happy. Because I had no health insurance I had to be seen at a clinic for my prenatal care, and everytime I went my chart was very unorganized and no one ever definitly told me how far along I was, but the morning of December 6th I started spotting.
I called the hospital and they told me to come in to check the heartbeat and an exam. I was relieved when they told me my cervix was closed but they looked very uneasy when they listened to the heartbeat. They didnt say a thing, and ordered me to have an ultrasound, but any idiot could hear the hearbeat was very slow. The next morning my husband and I went in for the ultrasound and they told me the baby must have died that night. I was given three choices of how to get the baby out and I chose the natural way. 2 days later in the wee hours of the morning I started to have horrible contractions. I was lying on the floor all alone, I couldnt get up to get my daughter who was crying, and I was really scared when the bleeding became a constant flow. My mother in law drove me to the nearest hospital and on the way I felt something huge come out of me. When I got there they told me I was in labor, gave me somthing for the pain which also made me pretty much sedated. I was taken in for a D&E soon after.
I later found out that I was about 15-16 weeks pregnant and the thing that came out in the car was the baby, which they took upon themselves to just throw away. I was discharged later that night, and it didnt hit me till I got home."It's over, there's not gonna be a new baby" I was very unsupported, no one would talk about it with me everyone acted as though it never happened. People who knew I was pregnant but hadn't found out I had misscarried would ask how the pregnancy was going, my husbands best friends wife was due on the same day as me and that was hard to pretend I was happy for her.
Not too long after my loss my husband said he wanted another baby, so we tried, and 2 months later I was pregnant!!!!!! Lots of worrying for the 1st couple of months, I hid the pregnancy until we were all sure that this baby was here to stay. I now have a beautiful baby boy. He is truly a blessing. My husband says that it's the baby we lost, and that he just wasnt ready before. I say the other baby is an angel in heaven, but I still see his spirit when I look into my sons eyes, he's telling me he's alright, he knows no mother ever forgets her little angel.
My KabreyiaI found out I was pregnant @ 5 weeks which was a surprise to me because I wasnt trying to get pregnant but I was still happy. At my first ultrasound at 12 weeks they told me that it looks like the baby will have a heart problem when the baby is born and she will need surgery or the baby might not make it through birth. But regardless I wanted to give her a chance @ life. My pregnancy was going good until the day I went into the bathroom and I found blood in my panties. Me and my fiance rushed to the hospital. They ran tests everything was looking okay until they tried finding the heartbeat and they counldn't, they ordered an ultrasound thats when I found out my Little Kabreyia heart wasn't beating. I was in denial first but it was true. I was 17 weeks pregnant and I had to give birth to my little girl. It still didn't hit me until I got home and I felt so empty inside and kept asking myself why me? But I hope God will take care of my little Kabreyia!
Mommy will always love you & you will be always with me.
lostI was so excited when I found out I was pregnant. I was told I would have a hard time but I didn't. I had quit smoking, was eating right and exercising, did all the things I was supposed to do and one night, May 4th 12:30 am. I started to bleed, I knew I was losing the baby nothing I could do. I went to the doctor the next day took the blood test and it was negative. I was 4 weeks along. I'm still getting emails from one of the sites I had joined for pregnant woman. I would have been 7 weeks today. I cried for 3 days and still now. I'm scared to try again cause I can't go threw that again. My husband was very supportive and strong for me. If it wasn't for him I would have been lost.
