Sorry for your loss I am feeling what you are feeling. I just had a miscarriage at 17 weeks and found out today baby heartbeat stopped at 15 weeks. My heart is so broken right now and I often wonder will I make it through this. I just got married and I have a 11 year old  things were looking good and it was broken in a moment. I am 36 and time is not on my side and my husband is 27 so we are trying to have family soon. I pray for each of you but this is hard to deal with.

Hello, My name is Beth.

We lost our daughter Bailey Annelise at 16 weeks from oligohydamnios, aka low amniotic fluid. This coming March 16th will mark the one year anniversary since we said goodbye.

I am currently pregnant with our second child, a little boy, due April 4th. Someday I will tell him about his older sister and the profound effect she had on our lives.

I am on my third miscarriage right now. I have four other children. My doc finally took blood for tests and said next time I get pregnant he wants to put me on progesterone and a blood thinner. You should ask your doc about those meds and ask him to do some tests.

I experienced a miscarriage in Oct 2012...it was the worst experience.  I went in for my 11 week appointment and I was so excited to hear the heartbeat.  No heart beat.  The doctor was not worried and scheduled an ultrasound the following day.  I was so worried, but I had great self talk knowing that I would find something out in the afternoon.  As I was driving to work, they cancelled the appointment...the tech was sick.  I lost it and tears came rushing down.  I called the dr and they got me into another place that day.  I went by myself, my husband was with my 6 year old daughter.  They did the ultra sound and said not a word.  Then the tech came back and said the my clinic would be calling and to answer the phone.  My clinic called and told me to drive over to the clinic.  That was the worst drive.  I saw the dr...not mine because she was off that day, but my old doctor.  Then she told me I lost the baby.  I was at 11 weeks, but the baby stopped growing at about 5 weeks and heart never formed.  This was a hard night.  My daughter, was crying and said, "This is not fair"...so hard.  The actual physical process was crazy...you can't understand until you go threw it....it came out naturally.  The first 2 weeks were hard and I never questioned why or how which I really  believed helped me through my grieving process.  I am having a difficult time now...a co-worker is prego and this makes me so mad...she is young and not married and nowhere close to being ready to be a parent.  I am ok with people who are ready..in my eyes...which is very judgemental, but I can't help it.  I am also seeing these very prego ladies...and think that should/would have been me right now...my due date was June 6th...I should be nesting like crazy and getting ready to welcome that baby.  I just can't stop crying..  Sorry for the long post  :)

Hi, my name is Sherri. My husband and I have a 6 year old daughter. I had a miscarriage in Nov. 2012. I was five and a half weeks. From the beginning I had cramping and a little spotting, which I was told was normal. It wasn't my normal because it never happened in my first pregnancy. The doctor decided to check my HCG levels. He told me they were 33 and should have been over 100. The following week I had a lot of cramping, By Sunday, November 11, 2012, I was bleeding  worse than a heavy period. I called the doctor and was told I was having a miscarriage. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to go through in my life. But as I type this I feel a little sad but I'm not crying which is a good thing.  For quite some time it was hard for me to talk about it without crying. But here it is May 2013 and it is still hard sometimes. The loss of a child is very difficult to get over. Some days are good while others are so bad. It seems like everyone around me is pregnant and due this year. My due date was July 10, my moms birthday. Just today I was looking at the calendar thinking about how far along I would have been.

 I guess the hard part too is I don't know if we will have anymore children. My husband wants me to get a job before we have another baby so that we will have more money. Being that I'm a stay-at-home, it is difficult to find a part time job that would help us. I have to work certain hours because I have to take our daughter to school and pick her up. It just won't work for us. I did work for six months and it wasn't the place for me. But I pray every night that it's God's will for us to have more babies, plus I'm not getting any younger.

But I'm taking it day by day and hopefully getting better. I know I will feel even better this time next year than I do this year. But the pain will never go away. Even if we have more kids I will never forget the baby that I lost.

Hi I'm Jess and I have 5 healthy kids. But then I had a miscarriage back in 2011, most likely due to a fall down the steps, and worst yet I lost my daughter and she was stillborn a year ago. I tried my best to fight the depression on my own, but this past weekend I got pushed over the edge when my husband left for the weekend saying he couldn't handle who I'd become. The depression and anxiety had changed me into a paranoid psycho. I freaked and took myself to the er. They gave me anti anxiety meds to get me through the weekend, and tomorrow I have an appointment to be put on antidepressants. My husband is back but things r a lil rocky.
