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.

my lil Zachariah James

I had my sleeping baby on March 4, 2010 after a week of complications. The week started on thursday the 26th of February when I went to the hospital with a discharge, found out it was my mucus plug. I was reassured that it would regenerate but the next day I started spotting called the dr and he just told me to take a load off and keep my appt for the following Monday. Sunday I started bleeding heavily and the dr still said keep the appt for Monday. I go see dr Monday found out I was dilating and was sent to another hospital. Found out there my bag of waters was bulging, they placed me at a head down slant position hoping the gravity would have the bag go back in so they can put a cerclage in so that i can stay pregnant for at least another 7 weeks. On March 4 at 17 wks pregnant, my lil Zachariah James was born sleeping. This has been a hard time for me with all the questions of why and could this have been prevented. I have now started to go to group meetings and counseling. We have also decided to try again but with another dr.

loss of twins..

I never understood how hard it was to loose a child until last week. I have had three successful wonderful pregnancies in a row. all three children were born breathing.. but sadly when my second child was 12 weeks old he passed away. I was devistated. after this me and my husband split. I have had an on and off relationship for a few months and was just starting new birth control. my period was due for the 15th and it came and went without even so much as a spot. becuase I had just started a new birth control I wasnt overly worried. weeks went by and it had been 8 weeks since I had, had my last period, but for some reason wasn't too concerned about it. I had nausea but I have several gastric ulcers so I assmued this was the reason for the nausea. last week I started getting alot of pain while I was driving home to the grocerie store. The pain was so unbarable I had to pull over. I figured that it was just gonna be a bad period becuase it had been 8 weeks since my last one. after a while I got back into the car and continued to the grocerie store. after walking around for a bit I was in so much pain I could barley walk. I was sitting on the floor when I started to gag (I was still nauseaous) and cough. after couching I felt this huge gush and it felt like I had passed a clot. despite being in pain I stood up and ran to the bathroom. when I made it into the bathroom I was mortified at what I saw in my underwaear. there was a large mass of tissue grey in colour and I was bleeding perfusly and passing incrediable large clots. I cleaned up and went home immediatly. later that day I went to the bathroom and while I was on the toilet I could feel I passed some more tissue. to my surprise when I looked in the toilet, there was a 8 week old fetus. I bawled my eyes out, I didnt know what to do or think. at this time things were not going good with the guy so I didnt tell him. shortly after the pain stopped and so did the bleeding.. but about 5 days later.. it started all over again.. and I miscarried again. It turned out I had been pregnant with twins and initally one had survived. after talking to the dr. we discovered that the reason the second one died was because that tissue I passed in the very beginning was part of the plecenta. I told the father last night, and he was devistated. I had mixed feelings about the miscarriage before and figured it was probably for the best.. but once I saw his reaction and heard what he had to say about it, I have been absolutly heart broken.. If this hadn't happened, I would of had two beautiful babies to bring into the world approx in november. Mommy loves you babies! <3


My angel

Wow where to start.When I found out that I was pregnant I was so ecstatic.And so was my partner.He was over the moon.All was going well.I was almost 10 weeks.Then I noticed that something just didnt seem right.I woke up one sunay morning & went to the toilet & there was blood.I had abdominal cramps but they werent severe.It totally freaked me out & in a panic I was rushed up to A & E at a private hospital to get it checked out.I knew I was having a miscarriage.Then it was a confirmed miscarrige.I had a D&C done.And now I am still going through my grieving process.Take the time to grieve your loss.Letting it all out will help you.Take each day as it comes.My partner took me down to the beach & that was when I released all my thoughts that I had held onto.Letting it all go & feeling cleansed & ready to take on the world.I am getting stronger everyday.The support I have had from my loving partner & family has been amazing.That`s what has helped me get thru them most darkest & sadest time in my life.My angel it wasn`t your time.I know you are watching over us.And you always will be.I love you always & forever.
your loving mummy & daddy...

PS:We will be trying for another baby in a couple of months.I am so excited about it...xoxoxox



Still hurting.

I lost my baby almost 2 weeks ago and It still gets to me when I see a pregnant woman or a new baby.
I lost my baby at 12 weeks pregnant. The baby had been gone for a week and I didn't know it. I had a D and C and it took longer than expected but all my insides are good. The doctor says after my next cycle I can try again.
I had tryed to get Pregnant for 3 years and for my baby to be taken away it really doesn't make any sence to me. I know God had his reason but I will never know them. I guess that is the way it is.
I will have my baby someday.


Picture Perfect Pregnancy, or so I thought?

I have always had picture perfect pregnancies. I have 2 beautiful girls, age 5 and 2. We decided we wanted our kids close in age so when our youngest was 1 we started talking about trying again. We got pregnant right away! And at our 20 week appt. found out we were having another little girl! So exciting! Everything was going perfectly, no morning sickness, feeling wonderful the whole time. I went in on a Monday for my 34 week check up and she was doing great, nice strong heartbeat. Little did I know that 24 hours later we would find out that she was gone. I wasn't feeling her move on Tuesday night so I called my mother-in-law and she brought me in to get checked out. My husband stayed home with our other children. The whole way to the hospital I was trying to be positive, but I had this awful feeling that our lives were forever changing with each mile we drove. I intuitively had my husband stay home thinking the if he stayed home then everything would be fine with the baby, I was just being paranoid and we would be home within the hour. When we got to the hospital the nurse tried to find the heatbeat and she kept moving the monitor around and I knew something was wrong because my doctor always found her heartbeat right away. So she went and got another nurse to check. The same thing kept going on which seemed like an eternity. We called my husband and had him come to the hospital. I asked the nurse to tell me what was happening but of course she couldn't say anything until the ultra sound tech came and confirmed my worst fear. There was no heartbeat and she was gone. My husband and I were devistated. How could this be happening, I was just at the doctors 24 hrs. ago! It was 11 o'clock at night and now I have to wait out the night until 9:30 the next morning to deliver my baby girl. It was the longest, most painful night of my life. The next morning at 9:27 am I gave birth via c-seation to a beautiful little girl, 5 lbs. 11 oz. and 18 in. long. She was perfect, they couldn't find anything wrong with her. They said the cause could have been to a possible umbilical cord defect. I still can't believe that she is not here with us. I went home three days later with my milk coming in, a painful incision, stretch marks, hospital bills, but no baby to hold. Just empty arms and an empty heart. I will miss her everyday of my life. Had she been delivered on that Monday, she would have survived. And that thought haunts me everyday.
