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.

Found out last Friday that my husband and I were going to have our first child together. I have 2 boys from a previous relationship. We were so excited that we told everyone we knew. I had all the symptoms of being pregnant.. On the following Monday I started having brown discharge. I was scared to death. Called my husband at work and he rushed home right away. We made arrangements for our sons to go and stay at my parents house. We went to the ER where they took a urine test that came back negative. So they took a blood test that came back positive but my hormone levels were low. On Wednesday I ended up back in the ER where the doctor confirmed that indeed I had a miscarriage. It is so new to us that neither one of us knows how to feel or what to think.. We are both so numb that we try not to talk about it or think about it. I go to the doctors tomorrow so they can check to make sure that everything is coming out correctly. This was a sad day and will always hurt.. To the little angel that could have been we love you and miss you very much.. till we meet again...
Shocking LossI was 2 months pregnant and didn't even know it. I had switched birth control pills just a few months earlier. I believe this is when I conceived. I had no reason at all to suspect a pregnancy because I started bleeding with a regular flow around the time I was expecting my period. Surprisingly, this was not when I miscarried. It was not until the next (what I thought was my cycle) when there were some changes. I was only 1 day late, but attributed it to stress and my body adjusting to the new birth control. So when I started bleeding the next day, I again just thought it was my regular period. However, later that night I had some slight cramping, headache, and fluctuated body temperaure. By the next morning, I felt even worse and the intensity of the cramps were becoming stronger. Several hours later (still having no idea that I was even pregnant), I went to the bathroom and there it was...right in front of me. It was a perfectly shaped fetus (and it was later confirmed that the fetus was 2 months). Words could not express the range of emotions I started feeling. I still don't think it has actually 'hit" me yet, that this really happened...or the fact that this baby had been growing inside me and I had no idea. However, I have great faith in God and know that it just was not meant to be now. I just hope and pray that sometime in the future I will become pregnant again and will be able to carry that baby to term and deliver a happy and healthy little one.
Goodbye BabyWhile waiting for my husband, I dropped by a friend's clinic to have some chat. Our talk led to pregnancy. She told me that if I don't agree with my husband's desire to have another baby it is not God's will. I left my friend with such thought and proceeded to my OB. It was only when the doctor was proposing a Fertility Program that I saw my husband was dead serious of us having another child. So when we went home I started praying that God will bless us with one.
Few days after I decided to have pregnancy test. The first five (of different brand) pregnancy strips revealed two different coloured lines: weak positive. It was so confusing and frustrating. Last week of March, before an out-of-town company outing, I decided to test again. So upon waking up at 4:00 a.m. I immediately got hold of the kit. And Lo and behold two dark lines appeared! I was really pregnant. The following day, i went to see another Ob (my OB was on leave). She told me that I need to take some vitamins and medicines. My baby's heart beat was weak. After two weeks of taking the medicines, I went back to see her again and she said baby's heart beat was normal.
I felt great and happy and so started to write a baby diary. I wanted to write down my thoughts concerning my pregnancy and hopefully have the diary be read by my baby when she or he becomes an adult. However, GOd has another plan.
Last April 21, while at work, I had spotting. I went to the hospital. My husband was out-of-town. I was waiting for my slot for the Ultrasound when I experienced heavy bleeding. when I saw so much blood I got so scared and cried. I have to insist with the hospital staff that I be attended immediately.
It was so sudden. I knew the baby was gone. I was so scared, so upset and so alone. I was immediately brought to the OR for D&C. FEw minutes after, my husband and friends arrived. Their presence brought so much comfort to me. I really still do not know what really happened. Physically, I know I need to rest from my daily activities at work. Emotionally, God give me the grace to be at peace with myself and just continue to hope in Him. I have set my mind to be physically and mentally prepare myself for another chance of having a baby again.

My beautiful baby girlI found out 2 days after my birthday that i was pregnangt. I was only 2 weeks along but I new that I was pregnant for sure. I was a little nervous due to past miscarriages but i just kept trying to stay positive plus my boyfriend was so excited. We found out the week before christmas that we were having a girl! I had a dr.'s appointment on Jan. 15 and the student dr. couldn't find Emersons heartbeat but my dr. came in and just said that her heartbeat was low and that there wasn't anything to worry about. I was still very nervous though so on Jan. 18 we headed to the hospital for them to tell us that our beautiful girl wasn't breathing. We had everything ready for her at home and she wasn't going to be coming home with us. I went through 12 hours of labor and at 9:02 p.m. Emerson Grace was born. We got to spend 10 hours with her and love on her. She is our precious angel and she will always be loved!!!
