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 41 and just lost my very first baby at 7 weeks. Going thru the actual miscarriage was painful and devastating, however I have been very ok with it since.... that is until someone asks me how I'm doing. Then I cry and it hits me I just lost a baby, my emotions are all over the place and one minute I'm happy, next I'm sad, next I'm bitchy... it's hard. I feel like time is running out for me and having a baby is something I really want. I'm scared that I won't be a mummy, the one thing that I feel will complete me. Is there anyone out there my age who is still trying for their first?

HopefulI have a beautiful 2 year old son. Problem-free pregnancy with him, but did have to have a c-section because I wasn't dilated. I got pregnant for the second time this past March. The pregnancy seemed to be going fine. All doctor appointments went well. At 16 weeks the heartbeat was exactly what my son's was during my pregnancy for him. We went in at 20 weeks for a sonogram to possibly find out the gender of the new baby and there was no heartbeat. We were devastated. They arranged for us to go to the hospital that evening to induce me. We were there for less than 24 hours. Labor and delivery were quick. They said the baby was very small. We did not have an autopsy performed. They told us that 4 out of 5 times an autopsy does not help in finding an answer. The doctor said that all of the fluids were fine that the baby needed and that my blood tests were all ok. I try to look information up about this almost everyday. I've been on baby-less maternity leave for 5 weeks now. I've had some good days and then days where I just fall apart. I went yesterday to the doctor for my check-up and to get a back to work note. I am longing to hear stories of anyone who has been at least half way through their pregnancy and has gone through something like this. I am scared to go back to work because of my up and down emotions. I don't know when to expect my first menstral cycle to begin. Has anyone that has gone through something like this been brave enough to attempt another pregnancy? and had a successful pregnancy?
Ruby May our angelI am 17 years old and was told id had a misscarriage on the 24th june. I had some blood prior to this but thought nothing of it as i had been told i had a rare blood type and this might happen but i had this feeling that im sure many of you have had that something bad was happening. This was our 2nd chance at being parents and that had been taken from us again it felt so unfair. I started to envy or cry histericaly at any women who walked by that was pregnant and that seemed to be everyone. Weeks went by like this till my partner told me that i could chose to take help or risk losing any chance of having a baby as i was destroying myself. I was roughly 17weeks and she would have been due on the 26th november 2010 and named Ruby-May. I still remember sitting in the hospital bed being told and the weeks of bleeding afterwards i now remember wot i should be remembering which is how beautiful she must look in heaven with her dads eye and my smile (Hopefuly) i am nowhere near recovering from it but i know she has an angel watching over her and she is watching over me cuz she's my angel but what sort of mum would i be to her if i gave up on life. She may not live on in my tummy anymore but she lives on in our hearts. My partner does not talk about his feelings on it much but he couldnt be anymore supportive to me and his shoulder couldnt be anymore wet from my tears but without him i wouldnt be here and learning to heal. U cant forget your baby but u can know in your heart that when the time is right they will come back to you healthy and ready to be held in your arms and in your heart. Ruby-May take care my lil Angel don't stay away from mummy and daddy to long we miss you but we are coping now and know you are in our hearts. My Advice to women is the pain cannot be cured straight away but don't give up finding hope as it is out there you just gotta wonna find it.
To young for this painI was seventeen years old when I had a miscarriage. I Found out I was pregnant in December of 2009. I couldn't believe that I was pregnant, it was my senior year in high school and I was pregnant. I was so happy that i was going to be a mom, I couldn't wait to get to school to tell everyone. Everything was going good until I started bleeding, I was scared so I went to the doctor. They told me that it was normal to bleed while your pregnant that it was just my period trying to end and that the bleeding should stop in a day or two. As the days went on so did the bleeding and it got heavier by the day.I went back to the doctor and they told me that I shouldn't worry that everything was going to be fine, but they were wrong. Two days later I woke up with terriable cramps and I starded bleeding very bad. I soaked up one pad less than five minutes. That when I knew it was serious. I had my miscarriage in my cousins bath room. I was so scared. I was changing muy pad before I went to the doctor and that when my baby fell into the tissue that i had in my hand.I didn't know what to do so I flushed it. That was eight months ago and I still cry every day wondering what I did wrong. I would never want anyone else to go through the pain that I feel inside.
