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.

Goodbye Sunshine

The day came that my fiancé and I were ready to bring a little one into the world. One day came that I took my pregnancy test and I left it on the window and went to work. When I got back home and saw it, I realized that I was pregnant. Like all others, we took several different brands just to make sure. The happiest day of our lives was here. After starting out appointments, we were getting excited and ready for our little one to come into our world. However, this was all suddenly stopped at seven weeks when I began to bleed. We went to the ER on Sunday and were told that the baby was normal and the heart beat was 120 bpm and that the spotting was normal. As the days went on, cramps started to come on and the spotting turned into bleeding. On Wednesday we went for our first ultrasound and were worried when we were told that the bpm dropped to 85. We were able to see the baby and hear the heartbeat for the first time. As the night went on, the bleeding and cramping came on hard and I noticed blood clots. Knowing something wasn't right, we went to the hospital were they preformed an emergency ultrasound and this was when we were told that we were no longer pregnant and the baby had passed. We may never know why this has happened to us, but we also know that only God knows and that our child is in a better place. My heart is broken, but we will try in the future for our long awaited baby. God Bless.

Princess Arlene was here and now is gone.

I am 25 years old, and was 38 weeks pregnant when my little Arlene Deanna Cathleen was stillborn on July 30th, 2010, she weighed in at a whopping 9lbs 15 oz and was 19.5 inches long. On the 29th of July at my regular ob visit her heartbeat was 154 and she was completly healthy, at 3 o'clock in the morning on the 30th my water broke and my mom rushed me to the hospitol where the doctors tried to find a heartbeat but could not find one. When the doctor told me that she had died I felt like I had died right along with her. How could this be, I've felt her move, heard her little heartbeat and everything just hours before how could she be gone. The autopsy report didn't have any answers for me and I will never know why my baby had to die. Every day I wake up and wonder what I could of done so that she could be here with us and not a day goes by that I don't imagine what she would be like. I miss her so much and it hurts so bad not having my little princess with me.


my first pregnancy

im 20 years old and just suffered from a stillbirth. It was wednesday afternoon when my husband and me went to our ultrsound appointment to find out the sex of the baby. we were so excited when we were looking at the screen when the nurse said"i have bad news for you guys" at first i thought she was gonna say the baby was positioned wrong to tell the sex but then the words "there is no heart beat and the baby is the size of a 17week fetus" tears came down my face all my dreams were broken. i was in the hospital for 3 days and the third day i delivered a baby boy. i couldnt believe that after trying so hard to have a healthy pregnancy i lost my preciouse baby all i do is cry but i know that my lil angel is in a better place. i hope to keep strong...


On my 24th Birthday

IT was january 25 th 2008 . i was nine and half months pregnant . Earlier that morning i was feeling discomfort and pain lying in bed was unbearable. so i got up and went to the bathroom. As i began to urinate i felt no movement as i usually do every morning when i urinate. i began to panic then my mucuse plug came down and i began contracting. I woke my husband up and told him that i needed to be rushed to the hospital immediatly.On the way to the hospital i felt no fetal movement at all but just contraction pain. i was in so much pain and all i kept thinking was there is something wrong . As i made my way to the emgergency room the nurses put me on a bed in the triage room with 3 other mothers to be . A nurse came in and examined me along witha black male doctor . The doctor said i was 7centimeters so i thought to myself that i wouldnt be that far along. then the nurse tried to put the heart monitor on my stomach and i noticed that she had a puzzled look on her face .She took the heart monitor off my stomach and asked for the doctor to come in . The doctor did a sonagram on my stomach and then requested that another doctor come in and do another sonagram . then he asked for a female sonagropher to come an take a look. abay then i akready knew that something was terribly wrong with the baby. Then the female sonagrapher looked at me and told me that she was sorry and taht my sons heart had stopped . i was in shock and disbelief. I screamed i kicked and told the doctors that i did everything right how could this be. My obgyn finally arrived and had to diliver my son stillborn. it was the worst feeling in the world . All i can remember is looking at the clock above the tv in the hospital and silently said HAPPY BIRTHDAY to myself.MY HUSBAND AND I FILED FOR DIVORSE NOT TOO LONG AFTER.

Baby Allyson gone too soon

I was finally expecting our 5th baby after 3 years of praying and over a year of trying. They were worried at first cause the ultrasound showed did not show eveything. A week later all was there.. I was very sick and heartburn hit right away.. Finally a heartbeat, our baby was growing..Went in again for was previa our baby was fine. Went in at 18 weeks for our ultrasound and she was perfect.. Her heart had dropped from 164 to 125 but they said very normal.. They didn't get a good look at her heart so back in 6 weeks,, In 2 weeks after that, I noticed WAY less movement.. EVERYTHING ON INTERNET said to be checked. but i thought she was just like my other girls..lazy and I would feel her...i thought Then my heartburn started leaving.. i thought the meds were working.. still no big alarms... went in July 16th ( i was 25 weeks along) and was told her heart had stopped weeks before and she had already started changing.. Gave birth to her on July 18, 2010. She was perfect besides her color..she weighed 7.4 oz and was 10 inches long..Long fingers and legs, a little hair that looked blond. I held her, alot, so did dadd, and her brother and sisters, grnadma and grandpa, kept her in the room with us till we had to leave a day later, Had the funeral home get her before i left so I did not leave her in the hospital. Leaving her was just as hard as hearing our baby has died. we had a funneral for her and a stone made. I go every few days still and check her flowers or replace them and spend hours talking to her. I have peacec when I leave. Its been 2 weeks and i am getting better but still can't sleep. I miss my Ally Grace so much.. We still don't have answers yet and may not.. I want to try again..but am scared to death too as well.. The only thing I can tell others is lean on GOD and GOD alone. He is My strength, My peace, my comfortor.. NO WAY could I do this wothout HIM.. I still cry, ache for her, smell her clothes, look at her pics we took, and think about her daily.. BUT God is making it more barable.
Writting things in a journal helps too.. My heart aches with you all who have lost babies.. Trust me.. Leaning on God is the answer.. You still hurt and miss your baby But HE makes it a tad easier... and the Bible be absent form the body is to be present with the Lord.. If she can't be in my arms and with me.. I am glad she is with the Lord...He is the best daddy and I know being saved, i will see her again soon.
