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.

Listen to your body!!

Sharon was the name I choose to name my baby girl. Two days after my 25th b-day, I woke up and felt like I had to poop. After several atempts nothing was coming out ,execpt for out of my vaginal area. I have a son which is 7 months old, and two depo shots. My husband rushed me to the ER, and I got the famous question are you pregnant, I said no way i had two depo shots. After taking a urine sample I got the news, I was pregnant and on top of that I was 21 wks. My body had given me the signs and I ignored them, due to the two shots of birth control. During the ultrasound, My baby was alive. So I began to pray for her to live. I felt that I was cheated out of her life, because I didn't know that i was pregnant. The nurse began to play her heart beat and at the same time the dr. was telling me she was to little to survive. So I became so angry and said turn the heart beat off. I just didn't understand why this was happening to me and my husband. My daughter pass away that day at noon and was delivered that day at 4:26pm. I held her little body which only weighted 12oz in my arms. That moment I will never forget for the rest of my life. The hospital dressed her in a little white dress and captured a couple of pictures. I later had my daughter cremated and will lay her to rest when I'm ready. I beat myself up everyday because if I had listen to my body maybe she would still be here. This Saturday makes two weeks and I'm coming along. My son is my everything now and I have learn to cherish every moment I have with him.

To My daughter Sharon, Mother loves you and cherished every moment we spent together. You live on though me.


not again

i wrote her in july to tell of my miscarriage at 6 wks. one week after i found out i was pregnant again. it really helped with the grieving to think i had been given a second chance. i miscarried again 4 wks later. it put such a strain on my relationship we are barely together. i go to counselling every monday to talk about my feelings. i cant talk to my partner as he didnt want either of my babies. he cannot understand why i cant snap out of it and move on. im sure there are many of you out there completely understanding of my situation. i can put a happy face on for a while but sometimes little things set me off. things like babies on tele or pregnant women walking past. i just want a baby sooo much right now but if i did i know i would be a single parent. i try not to talk about my feelings to his so as not to start an arguement. talking to the counsellor i can get it all off my chest. we all need someone to talk to. if you are alone out there please think about talking to one. its the best thing ever.

hi could any help me i have lost 2 babys by ectopics one in 2001 and in 2006. now at 28 years old does anybody no if i have a chance ever having a baby my sister as a boy and any day now she will be having a another. it makes me so mad that i cant have one. i keep asking why but its like i am one my own with out light on.


who do i blame?

I found out i lost my baby july 31,2008 the day before my 29th b-day.I had some spotting but i didn't think anything about it because sometimes that happens -and it was very light.I called my husband and he suggested i go to the doctor-and i called the doctor's office , and they told me to come on in . the doctor did an ultrasound and there was no heartbeat,my baby was gone.all i could think was what did i do wrong, was i being punished,my heart was broken-i had carried my baby for 12 weeks and i loved this person growing inside of me more than anything-and my baby was taken from me .two months have passed and i still get real sad- i would feel alot better if i knew why,then atleast i would have some closure.and even though i still want to have another baby , i'm terrifield i will miscarry again,but i know i want be complete untill i have another baby.


MACROBID and 24 hours later...

We were happy to see our little boy on our ultrasound at 3 months... We sighed a breath of relief because we made it past the first 3 months - which usually means that everything is fine (most of the baby is formed by this time and working fine) I went to my doctors and found out that I had a bladder infection - I was A SYMPTOMATIC which means no symptoms whatsoever - had it with my first child too - almost 6 years ago now... This being my second child with the same doctor I trusted her advice... She prescribed MACROBID to treat my infection.... I picked the tablets up Friday took one at night and then Saturday morning I had terrible chest pains - felt like I was having a heart attack... it was minor and went away within a half an hour.... I didn't think anything of it... I actually told myself it may be heartburn or acid reflux.... By nightfall it had happened again - it was so severe that my husband rushed me to Emergency.... Once there they checked my vitals - they DID NOT check on my son - no ultrasound, no fetal monitoring nothing - I told them that my son was all over the place - that he was in distress and the doctor on call said the heart pains have nothing to do with the baby.... I cried and begged for him to check but they didn't.... WHile at Emergency the baby stopped moving... I was sent home.... for days I didn't feel him move - I felt him everyday since I was 2 months pregnant.... A week later I had an appointment with my OBGYN and they did a heart beat test and heard nothing - I was taken into ultrasound and my baby wasn't moving.... I knew right away and feel it with every ounce of my being that it was the MACROBID.... I am reading more and more online and people can't "medically" link the deaths of their babies to MACROBID but my situation happens a lot - just because the autopsy is "inconclusive" doesn't mean there is no connection between the two!!! I am a healthy 33 year old, I eat organic foods, don't smoke, don't drink alcohol, never done drugs - I don't even take a tylenol for headaches... I know about not taking hot baths in pregnancy - goodness sakes I didn't even drink honey because it's not pasturized... I am a healthy idividual - who uses natural cleaners like vinegar and baking soda... I am mad, very angry infact that 24 hours later after MACROBID my healthy little boy is gone and there is nothing I can do to prove it was the drug!!!
