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 Stillborn Baby Boy

My name is Chelsea. I have had a rough time growing up not knowing who i wanted to be, i always felt as if somthing was missing.. I met my boyfriend Dave in 2010, i was just 17 and just got out of a 2 year relationship. I hadnt been so happy in a long time, it had been over a year after we started dating it was halloween and i was working i had suspitions i was pregnant and we were supposed to go to a party so he brought a pregnancy test to me and on my break i took it.... It was positive i was so scared i went outside and told him. (hes in his 20's he was ready) He was soo happy, i was contemplating getting an abortion i was too young i had just turned 18 in may, but i agreed anyways on keeping the baby (i was 6 weeks). for the first month i would lay in bed watch baby shows and cry, what was i going to do he had already told his friends and some family?! After i got over the initial shock I was so happy i was having a baby I finally felt complete i didnt care that all my other friends were out partying i had TRUE happiness and a family starting.

My pregnancy was going perfect my baby was very energetic i was growing perfect size no diabities all the test came back perfect. Then i found out i was having a little boy, i had never seen dave so happy i was in complete shock i was so happy so content i loved my life. when i was almost 27 weeks i had eaten some chinese food i started having really bad diariah and a stomche a i decided to wait it out and call my Midwife in the morning, i woke up and went to the hospitial to meet my midwife becuase he hadnt been moving as much, they ran some test and after an hour he kicked me 11 times in 1 min, they said everything was fine.. 11 days later that was a difforent story.

I had woken up on April 6th (good friday) and i hadnt felt him kick i wasnt worried at all he was just doing the same thing he had done before so i waited a few hours drank some sugary drinks and layed on my side, still nothing.. around 2pm i called my midwife and she told me to meet her there, i was there around 3 still thinking everything was fine, there were litttle signs telling me different the song that came on when i get into the car was "why do all good things come to an end" i just ignored it and changed the station.. when we got to the hospitial
they started doing the non-stress test they couldnt find the hearbeat---- there was only one doctor working because it was a holiday so i had to wait for an hour to get the ultrasound, while i was getting it i couldnt look at the screen i knew deep down that he was gone.. i glaced over and look at my precious little baby as the doctor told me he had passed away. It felt like my world had crashed right before my eyes in a second i yelled at the doctor WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO KNOW crying uncontrolably with my 2 midwives and my mom by my side. Dave was at the gym i told him everyting was fine our baby was just playing tricks on us again. One of the hardest things ive ever had to do was call dave and tell him, he was silent for a moment the just started screaming and crying, what were we going to do this little boy was our everything we were finally happy truley HAPPY. Dave rushed to the hospital with my dad and all of our other family came after. My midwife gave me some pills to jump start labour, i went home and i took them at 10pm that night, My contractions started at around 1.30am they were so painful i finally called my midwife at 5 i got to the hospital just before 6am they gave me a shot of morphen to try to stop the pain it didnt kick in til around 7.30am. 30 mins later they gave me the epidrual, i went numb my boyfriend and my mom were by my side the whole time. when i was laying there just about to fall asleep i heard a voice saying I love you, i asked my boyfriend if that was him and he said no he was sleeping on the bed beside me. I was so thankful for to know that my little boy was talking to me and told me he loved me. at around 11.30pm on saturday the 7th my epidrual started wearing off so the upped the does and i fell back asleep i woke up at 12:35 and could feel somthing i thought my cathader was acting up so i asked the nurse to check and she said everything was fine i put my finger inside and i felt his head the nurse called Chole my midwife and got my mom, i held off pushing for 2 mins then when everyone got there i started He was out in 7 mins, my placenta followed 3 mins after. he was born at 1.49am on Sunday April 8th I couldnt look at him it was too hard.

Mine and my boyfriends mom saw him and i changed my mind at 6am i first layed eyes on the love of my life. Why did he have to go! i need him! We were to upset to hold him. they kept him at the hospital for 3 days after on the last night we could see him me and my boyfriend decided to go back it was bitter sweet i felt like i was going to get to bring him home i had to remind myself that was the last time i was ever going to see his precious face, I am so happy i did, me and Dave were there for hours holding him kissing him singing and rocking him back and forth the hardest thing was having to say good bye. It has been 3 months since we lost my boy, We still havnt gotten the results for what went wrong.

It gives me peace knowing that hes with God and he passed away on the day that jesus died so he could get reborn, Im waiting to get a pregnancy test done, please pray for me dave and for our little angel to come back to us.

Im sorry to anyone who has lost a baby just know you will get though it, and they are ALWAYS with you

A baby boy wrapped in a cord

A baby WILL get you excited...but if he or her passes, your devistated! I know that because i am a mother of 4 soon as time would now it...5 kids, i have 5 kids alright, but one is in my memory. This is my story.

My 10 year old daughter had been begging for a baby brother or sister, so me and my husband wanted to surprise her with a baby! Soon after we tried for a child, i took a pregnancy test and it came back positive! Me and my husband were SO happy! After i took my test i threw it away in the trash, that was my 1st mistake, because me and my husband tend to tell them after we know the baby is going to born, but they can easily look in there and see im pregnant, AND that's just what they did, my daughters cousin had been spending the night and she went to the bathroom to use it, she threw somthing out and saw the test, she showed my daughter, and they ran into were me and my husband were, my son had already known because i know he wouldent freak out, but the girls did... so they ran upstairs and thought of baby names. We were so happy...

The day we found out the gender of our baby, we got our kids a box that they could open and see what the gender is... so we recorded it and when they opened the box they ALL screamed, ITS A BOY! They were all happy including me and my husband, because we had 3 girls and 1 boy!......

A day before i found out the baby had passed, i dident feel any movment, i thought i felt jerks, but that was my stomach, and that happend after my pregnancy too. The next day i went to the doctors, and they told me the baby isent moving, and than they saw he was died, how devistated and sad was i? More than i could say, 1 million questions raced through my head, like "what wil my daughters reaction be?" and how will my son feel?".

I called my husband and sobbed ito the phoone "Our baby boy will always be in our and gods memory." He rushed in.

My husband went home and gatherd the kids in my room, than said "Mom is ok..." What felt like hours my husband had said "The baby died." My husband cries into his hand, my son is very quite and i know hes holding it in, my littlist daughter doesant understand my 6 year old daughter is hurt and says "No baby brother?" My oldest daughter, the one who had been begging for a baby had been both shocked and sad. she bursted out crying.

The doctors said that the cord was wrapped around his neck 2 times, cutting the blood flow to his head, my husband had watched the baby come out and he said he swore he dident see any cord around his neck, but he couldve been hulusinating.

We had my baby cremated, and got my kids necklaces to put his ashes in, every night we tuck all 5 of our beautiful kids in, evan our baby boy. My daughter makes us kiss his urn, and we all do. at night she wraps a blanket around him so he wont be cold and she puts her head down and prays and prays that she will see him again, it makes me and my husband cry so much, but we dont cry until shes asleep, we love all our kids, evan the one in our and gods memory.


Two Lost Souls.

Hi. My name is Kate. I was 18 years old when I found out I was pregnant. In the begining, the doctors told me I would never be able to have children because of a genetic medical condition. So when I decided to have sex, I thought contraceptives weren't necessary. I found out I was pregnant with twins the day after I received my acceptance letter from Yale. The father and I were on good terms. We were friends. We weren't in love but we both decided to give these babies the best life we could. We moved into our own flat, bought all the baby things, went to Lamaze classes. But when my 26th week rolled around, something went wrong. I went into early labor. The babies' heartbeats were to weak and the doctors had to preform a c-section. After their two-week fight in the NICU, they both passed within several days of each other. I was devastated. The father and I moved away. I began attending classes at Yale. But I had no reason to go on. There were so many awful things to remind me of my children. The toys and baby clothes I now possessed, having to explain to my college roommates that I board a train every weekend I can to visit the gravesite of my children. But the worst for me, is this scar. A constant reminder of what I could have had, but lost. I love you both, Claire and Sebastian. I will never love anything as much as I loved the two of you. Hopefully, if there is something up there, I'll see you soon. But until then, I know that some part of you still lives in me. Goodbye my sweet angels.


hererotopic pregnancy loss - triplets

about two weeks ago i was rushed to hospital following a sudden sharp pain in my stomach area after i ate a bowl of thai salad made of papaya, i was 9 weeks pregnant during that time. before i could finish the salad i developed sharp shooting pain in my stomach area and following that i had diarrhea three times and vomited two times while waiting for the ambulance to arrive. the pain was indescribable â far far worse than labor pain, i canât even move an inch. after a torturing journey to hospital, doctors cleaned my uterus and found two dead babies there and the moment i became conscious from uterus cleaning i began to feel the same pain again and i was shouting the top of my lungs in pain, i also experiencing difficulty in breathing because the moment i breathe the pain became much more sharper. then the doctor perform an open abdominal surgery on me after a ct scan found there is lot of fluid in my tummy. following the open abdominal surgery the doctors found out the pain actually from the ectopic pregnancy rupture. my doctor kept telling me this is so rare that it is called triplet hererotopic i donât believe i until i searched the internet and found that it is indeed very rare for my case, i was pregnant naturally. i did not take herbs or on any medication. i donât even take any supplement. so i think my case is rare as it is spontaneous. i am chinese 35 years old. will someone enlighten me on my case? i feel bad because if the ambulance arrive early my twins in my uterus could be saved.
