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.

Stillbirth at 35 weeks

I lost my baby boy at 35 weeks, it was the most devasting emotional pain I've ever experienced iin my entire life. My doctor had scheduled routine stress test twice a week. I was at my third visit and everything was going great up until that point, when the nure told me she couldn't find a heartbeat. My heart sunk to the pit of my stomach, I was in shock, so was my huband. We were both so looking forward to our son's arrival. Afterwards my doctor ran several blood tests and found that I had a blood clotting disorder {Factor V Lieden} that most likely caused the death of our son. It's been almost a year now and it still saddens us greatly, I still cry over the loss of our baby boy, the family was devasted as well. Fortunately there is hope for us, with the right treatment during pregnancy it will most unlikely not happen again. I am 40 years old, and pray everyday that got will grant us another miracle. God bless anyone who has experienced this kind of pain. The greiving process is a long road to travel down, but we are remaining hopeful that we will be able to conceive again when the time is right, pray for us. :-)

over 20 weeks

I was so excited, it was my first pregnancy and everything was going well. I had morning sickness all day every day up until week 16. We had heard the FHB at 9 weeks and 14 weeks, so we went to the 20 week scan all excited (we were 19 and a half weeks at this stage). We didn't want to know if it was a boy or girl, just that everything was ok.
We got there and I started feeling nervous, the lady before me was HUGE compared to me and she was only 1 week ahead of me. We went in and the poor ultrasound lady couldn't find a heartbeat anymore. We were devastated. They estimated the baby to only be about 15 weeks in size.
That was only the start of our problems.
I was shunted from specialists to hospitals to doctors ... No one wanted to help cos the baby was too big, and I was over 20 weeks by this stage.
I ended up in our local hospital. They needed to give me drugs to induce labour, but they couldn't guarantee that it wouldn't happen on Christmas day, so I had to postpone the drugs till Christmas Eve. I ended up in hospital on the 27th Dec having to give birth to my baby. It went very smoothly until my Placenta was retained, and I needed to go into theatre for a DnC.
Being over 20 weeks, there was talk about birth and death certificates, but thankfully because the baby was so small, it was not necessary.
I am just thankful it is finally all over, and we can move on and try again.
My body is an amazing thing, and I know in my heart that it was not meant to be this time. It gives me comfort to have a wonderfully supporting partner who is excited to try again and I know that this was just a test run for the real thing next time!
I know it is easier to say than do sometimes, but it is vital you try and stay positive. Everything happens for a reason, and this has made my relationship so much stronger with my partner. I have had the opportunity to see what a tower of strength and love he can be.

i am now 15 years old. 8 months ago, i found out i was pregnant. i had never imagined that i would get pregnant, but i had an awesome boyfriend, and a very supporting parents. i thought my first ulrasond went perfect and i was really excited. i later found out, that the doctor pulled my mom aside and told her that i was gonna lose it. i woke up on morning, bleeding and in pain. i was alone on the bathroom floor, pouring blood. it was the worst thing to ever happen to me. i loved that little baby. it had become my whole life. but i am now almost five months pregnant with another baby. i'm due june 14. please pray for me. and pray that my baby makes it.


I lost my pulguita

I'm 22 years old, and i'm from Ecuador, on January 2010 I should be giving birth to my first child, but i lost it sixth months ago, it was an ectopic pregnant... Even now i'm working, i never stop thinking how would it be, i love my baby, although i never saw it, i've been crying since july, my fiance is sad but i saw in him that he tries to be strong so he could help me... Last night we praid for our baby, we prefer to think he or she is in heaven taking care of us... I want to have another baby, but I'm afraid, I don't know if I could pass all over this again... I carry on my purse the only eco I had from the baby and i kiss it sometimes... I can't look to other woman that are pregnant, and today a partner of work told she was pregnant and that she doesn't know if she want it, I hope she changed her mind... Thank u for reading, and sorry if my english is not very good...


I lost my fifth baby

I was so glad to know I was having a boy. I have two older kids from my first husband a boy and a girl. Me and my second husband have two daughters and were waiting for our son we lost. We only knew that he was a boy for one day until we knew he wouldn't survive. I thought that I would die from heartache. That was one of the worst days of my life. I had never lost a baby and didn't know how that felt. After four healthy babies from 20 to 2 years old. Mind you I am 35 even though I know they consider that advanced maternal age. It hurts so bad to loose such an anticipated baby we thought we were done girl or boy. We just wanted a healthy baby....again and then this happened that would change me forever. The mommy me who was supposed to be strong was now weak and broken and for got her purpose. I have lost alot in my life but never thought I would loose a child that was the only thing I was good at. Making babies until now. I still walk around with a broken heart. I don't know how to heal myself and move on.
