  • I know miscarriages are horrible but sometimes they just happen, they can't be helped. Sometimes the baby just isn't meant to be and you shouldn't let this put you off having other children. Particularly if your doctor has told you that it wasn't any problem to do with you or your husband, there is no reason why the next one wouldn't be completely healthy. It's sad, but you can't let it stop you from moving on.

  • give yourself time to process this loss...
    and hidden blessings many people do you know raising special needs babies.....we loved them to the end, but it is a life that changes parents forever.

    I bet you are meant to have typically abled children and this is your journey for that to happen....

  • Grief hits people in different ways and just give yourself the time you need to grieve the loss of this baby before you 'try' for another. I just m/c in June at 13 weeks and had a D & C also. I feel for you as I understand what you are going through. We began trying after just a month as well as I felt ready and was past the point of 'trying to replace' the baby we had lost. We can never replace him/her but we have come to a point where we are ready to have another baby and can accept that our m/c child was just not meant to be.
    So sorry to hear of your loss. It is through the understanding and support of those around us, that you can get through this.

  • My mom had a miscarriage a few years before she had me. She was told the same thing, but still blamed herself. She was scarred the entire time she was pregnant with me. It's perfectly natural to scared.
