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.

What a lossMy husband and I have our perfect daughter Bella who is 18 months old. We wanted to add to our family, but first I needed a hip replacment after being stung by a sting ray in Fiji. I had the hip surgery in May 09 and on August 30th we found out we were pregnant! We were so excited! however, we told my husbands parents and his mothers instant reacting was..............'dont get too excited, 4 out of 10 pregnancys end in miscarriage'.......we were gutted to hear these words but tried to stay excited. We told my family and everyone was very excited for us. Last night I felt damp between my legs, went to the bathroom, and to my shock I was bleeding. I called my mum right away and she said to stay in bed and use a pad. At 4 am I got up to find a little lump of bloody flesh on the pad, our baby. What devastation, we just lay there crying for the baby we had just lost. This morning I went for a scan and there was no sign of a baby, I am now empty. I feel so heart broken, but I know that God has a plan for all of our lives and for some weird reason, this is part of the plan. I have faith that we will conceive quickly and have a healthy perfect baby again soon. Thank you all for sharing your story and reading mine.
Scared and confusedMy husband and I decided to try and concieve a baby exactly a year ago. My hsuband is 30 and I am 31, so we were aware that it might take some time. Nothing however could prepare me for what have happened in the past 12 months. I have had 3 positive pregnancy tests at different times and every time just as we want to start getting excited, I starting bleeding at only 5 weeks. This has been so emotional and cruel for both of us. There does not seem to be anything truly wrong and this month I am going to try clomid for the first time. Why this happens we'll never understand but I am so scared that I will never be able to concieve and stay pregnant!! :-(

How can the same exact thing happen twiceI was pregnant in 2007 and had a hip replacement in June 07 on July 23 2007 I found out that I was pregnant 2 days laater my best friend told me her news that she to was pregnant. On my 2nd Anniversary August 6 07 I had a miscarriage. My best friend had her baby boy on March 9, 2007 which was my husbands 25th Birthday. We made endless attempts to get pregnant again and finally with the basil temp method aftrer 4 months we were pregnant again we found out on Good Friday April 10th 2009. My Sister - In - Law found out she was pregnant about a week later. I had two ultrasounds and got to here the babies heart beat it went from 130 to 170 I was told the baby was getting stronger the sac and everything looked like it should as I was High Risk so I went to the Dr. with anything that I thought might be wrong they told me I was fine. I had a Miscarriage on Mothers Day 2009. I had a D&C on May 12th 2009 as the baby wouldn't pass on its own and they were worried that it may hurt me so they scheduled the D&C for a day later. I M/C my first at home so I know about waiting this time it was the same thing someone close to me is having a baby and I cant make myself care. I wanna be a part of the babies life because I will be her aunt but I have a hard time dealing with this again wondering how god could make someone litterally relive a chapter in their life that was so horrid. I tested my faith and my love to god and didn't know why as I sat in the cold dark OR waiting room for my Dr. to get there. Then a mother and Father had come in and their son was in bad shape and they didn't know if he was going to make it. When I went to leave the little boy was going to the OR the same time when I was getting ready to leave. I asked about the little boy and the nurse said that he was going to be fine. My husband and I were going home I felt lost betrade stolen from and empty until My husband and I at the same time said exactly what we said we didn't wanna here this time "Everything Does Happen For A Reason' My niece will be a constant reminder as my friends Boy is that I to have two children in Heaven With testing we found out that it was a BOY!! My other on we didn't know what gender. But I think that me losing my baby that horrible day may have helped save a boy I didn't even know. It was then I realized I was mad at god but asking for his help at the same time. I hope anyone who is going threw or has went threw this will take a moment on October 15th @ 7pm and light a candle in memory of your little Angel(s) as it is National baby loss day. As for the situation that I am in right know my baby was due in December and I pray to god everyday that she had a girl and it was in January 2010. So far its a girl so hopefully god pulls threw on the date to Have Faith he still loves you. When you only seen one set of prints in the sand it was then that he carried you. I seen this footprint saying on a keychain I bought for my first miscarriage. I think it is true. To Mommys Angels I miss and will always hold you close to my heart. You will never know how much I loved you from the start.

I understandStacey, I understand what you are feeling. I found out my sister-in-law was pregnant about 4 weeks before I found out that I was pregnant. I lost our baby March 30,2009 at 10 weeks. My sister-in-law had the perfect pregancy. She just had her baby Aug, 25th, 09. Throughout her pregnancy it was very hard to be around her. I thought why does she get to have a perfect prenancy and I don't? She said I could be in the room for the birth and that I could come to the scan when she found out the sex. I didn't do either. It was hard enough just going to the hospital to meet the baby. It was so hard sitting here holding my neice and knowing that I will never get to hold my baby that I lost. My husband and I have been married for 5 years. In that amout of time I have had over 6 cousins, including my little brother, who have all had babies. I am the only married one in my famiily without children. I want kids more then anything. My husband is afraid that if we get pregnant that we will have another miscarriage. It's been 5 months since the loss and I think of our baby every day. I have a very hard time with it. I still cry every month. What you are feeling is normal Stacey. I know what you are going through and I am so sorry for your loss. Nothing can every replace the babies that we have lost. My only comfort is that our babies are in heaven. I pray and have hope for the future that we will be able to have children. Prayer, faith and hope are what keep me going. I have to hold onto that because I can't hold onto my baby. Hang in there, it gets a little easier with time, but the whole in your heart will be there forever. I'll be thinking of you.
