Pregnancy Loss

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. Share your words with us and share your support with other women.

It is best to avoid using stimulants during pregnancy. Amphetamines and dextroamphetamines are powerful drugs and when taken during pregnancy, they can cause miscarriage, early labor or birth defects. You may want to ask other women if they have had personal experience with this.

An Angel Baby Girl In Heaven

When I first found out I was pregnant I was so Happy and thrilled Because I always wanted a baby. I told my family and they were so excited for me. I needed for something to go right in my life after having a very hard time living with a very complicated problem. I told my boyfriend that I was pregnant and he was very happy but then as time went by he got very angry he didn't want a baby and he didn't want me anymore. I found out that I was having a baby girl and I was so thrilled I wanted a daughter so badly I named Her Gracie Evelyn. I was about 5 1/2 mths pregnant and I saw Her father and he got very angry that I didn't have an abortion and he punched me in the stomach. It instantly Killed my Baby Girl. I remember having the D&C done and crying all the way there and all the way back. I cried for a month straight. I cant get over the fact that she is not her with me.Its only been about 2 1/2 mths now and I am still not dealing with it well. But I have a Beautiful Baby Girl Named Gracie Evelyn In Heaven Watching Over Me. Mommy Loves You Baby Girl<3


Losing our boys

We found out in April of '10 that we were pregnant. We were not really even trying. So this was a total surprise. Honestly, it was a BIG surprise as I couldn't get pregnant in my first marriage. We had a ultrasound at 7 weeks and were able to see the baby's heartbeat. Everything was fine! Then we had some bleeding, they sent us to the emergency room and we thought for sure we had lost our baby. They did a blood test only and said that our hormone level was fine, so to see our doctor the next day. Well, we did and they did an ultrasound to see what caused the bleeding. We were having twins! So now, we went from having a baby, to losing that baby, and now we were having twins! Great news. Things were going ok. We made our 20 week appointment and were very excited to find out the gender of the twins. The doctors said everything was going well. In my 19th week, I had this major pressure in my stomach. I could barely walk at times. I saw the doctor, he said it was "growing pains". Ok, I can deal with that. Then the next day after the appointment I started to spot. They told me some bleeding could happen. So, two days after the appointment-I was bleeding heavier and still had that pressure. My back hurt. I called the doctors office and the nurse said I needed to go straight to the hospital to see if I was going into pre term labor. I went to use the bathroom before we left and my water broke! We rushed to the hospital. They admitted us right away to the labor and delivery area. They started me on IV antiobotics right away and after a couple of hours the doctor finally saw me. He confirmed my water had broke and the cervix was hourglassed. Most likely suspected a incompetent cervix, but there was nothing we could do at this point. He said active labor could start at anytime. Because we were at 20 weeks, there was nothing that we could do to stop it and our twins would likely not survive. They were very concerned about infection to me since my water had broke. They kept me in the hospital to see when labor would begin. If we made it to Monday (it was Saturday), we would see a specialist to see if he has anything to add. We did make it to Monday and the specialist agreed that there was nothing to be done. In fact, we were having boys (we knew it all along!) and that one of the babies had moved down (his cord was coming out) and it was a matter of time for the other baby's water to rupture and for him to come down. He suggested that we induce labor to avoid infection to me. The longer we waited, the more likely we were to get a serious infection which would hurt our chances of any future pregnancies. The baby and the cord were in a position that put me at a very vulnerable place for infection. After the input of 3 doctors, we decided to induce. Our boys were born the next day (August 10, 2010). We named them Bryce and Brody. They never took a breath when they were born. We were able to bless them and spend the night and next morning with them. I was released the next day. After I had delivered the boys, they took me into surgery to do a D&C as the placenta was heavily attached. Two weeks later, I miss the boys like crazy. They are my angels now. They are burried next to my niece and I will never forget them. I am being treated with antiobotics right now as we suspect that not all of the placenta had been cleaned out. The cramping and bleeding is off and on two weeks later, some days are good, some days are brutal. I am anxious to get better, healthy and try to give our adopted daughter and our boys-who are now angels-a brother or sister. This whole experience is very surreal. I have cried each day since the day my water broke. I now ask why me, what did I do wrong, and what could I have done differently? I always wonder what would have happened if I went to the hospital one day sooner than I did. My husband reminds me there is nothing we could have done. God has a plan, although I might not get a choice in this plan-I have to go along with it. I pray to God for a healthy and normal pregnancy with the next one. I pray there is a next one!
