When I first miscarried I was brought to a Catholic hospital. A nun came to calm me because I was hysterical with grief. I was raised in a Catholic school and my husband knew it would help me.
She was an older nun and told me to quiet down so she could tell me the truth. I listened to her intently as she told me that my baby was safe in heaven. The body was a vessel and still a shell. She told me that my babies soul was safe in heaven and would not enter the body until God gave her the first breath of life. She told us to try again and when my baby is ready she will come down.
Do you believe that this is true? This is not an abortion debate please. This is simply a question about when does the babies soul enter the body?

Yes i believe it does, but i also believe in reincarnation. So i believe that the miscarriage was a way of burning karma. So hopefully that soul will have a more pleasant life the next time around since a load of karma was lifted through the miscarriage.
