I am so sorry for your loss no woman should ever have to feel this kind of pain this is the fifth time this has happened to me I have no children and it is tearing me up and my marriage, we want a family so much. I got a puppy this time he is helping a little, just working 10 hours a day alone in the office is killing me. I try to stay busy, i forget one minute it has been three months but that constant bleeding reminds me and I just start balling again. cling to your man he needs you as much as you are hurting. I cant say it gets easier but the first misscarriage I had hurt so much I thought I had no reason to live it wass terrible, and I have learned to cope with the fact that the way im feeling is only temporary. I will pray for you and your husband.

My name is Angela, I'm 35, Mother to 5 on earth, one in heaven.  I just gave birth to my Angel baby on Saturday at 16 weeks.  I had been very sick for the past month, kept going to Dr's and Specialists and they kept telling me I had pneumonia, I'd been on 3 different antibiotics, one of the Dr's mentioned I may have Valley Fever, but didn't order the test, so a few days later, I went to my OB and demanded that test...unfortunately at that appt, there was no Heartbeat.  That night at the ER I had lots of Labs, and EKG, a CT scan, chest X-rays, and an Ultrasound which confrimed our little one had passed :(  On Friday they started an induction, Saturday as I was close to delivering, I started losing a lot of blood and clots (which we found to be about 7 pounds worth), and I was rushed back for an Emergency D&E under General Anesthesia.  While I was back there, my husband got the call that I indeed have Valley Fever.  Later in the night I passed out and required a blood transfusion.  My labs also came back positive for a virus called CMV...both Valley Fever and CMV can cause fetal death, although we will never know for sure.  I am so weak, exhausted, emotional...and know i have a long recovery ahead of me...Valley fever takes 3-6 months. 

Our little Avery John was born Saturday.  We were able to hold him and spend time with him, as were our other kids.  I know that he is at peace in heaven, but gee wiz do our hearts ache for that little guy...it's just so painful!  We decided to have him cremated, so that we may always keep a part of him close to us.

Hi my name is Mary! I have suffered a total of 3 losses my most reason 1 was May 22nd which I had to have my 2nd D&C for. I do have 1 child a 2yr. old little boy named Justin Tyme. I cherish him everyday because he was my miracle baby. But this most recent loss I'm having a lot of trouble dealing with, because I have 2 friends that are still pregnant & we were all due with in like a week of eachother. & it's hard seeing them post & talk about there progress. How can I handle my loss & still be supportive to them?

I found out 6/7/2012 that my LO had passed at 6w3d, and I should have been almost 8 w. I'm dealing with this as best I can, but I'm so sad.

Hello! I recentley had an ectopic pregnancy. It was a surprise to be pregnant but I as well as the father were excited. I have my 2nd check up after the ER visit tomorrow and I hope I can keep it together...the last visit consisted of me crying the whole time. I am so overcome with emotions at all times. I feel like a crazy person.

I tried this before, lets see if it works now lol. So I recently expierenced an ectopic pregnancy. I was in a year long relationship that went south fast. After the end of that relationship I started to talk to my previous on again off again ex of 2 years. Needless to say I took a pregnancy test 2 weeks after our date and it was positive. I was so scared but yet so excited. I forced the Dr to get me in the next day, it was too soon to see anything on an ultrasound, so I did the blood work and everything looked normal. The father and I were talking everyday and having date nights, it felt so amazing. For about two weeks I was sick but I welcomed it. The dad left for a huge music festival and I started to think how I hadnt been sick in a few days. Then I noticed a little spotting. The next day I felt so weak and the cramps started. I went to the ER with an internal feeling of knowing.....knowing something was wrong. They told me it was ectopic and gave me a shot of Methotrexate. I am going for my 2nd check up tomorrow, and praying I can hold it together. So now I am going through the motions....i feel very lost and confussed

My name is Britney i am 27 years old and 2 weeks ago i found out i was pregnant. 2 days ago i started bleeding nothing bad but it scared me. I finally went to the er and it turns out i miscarried. I have since felt horribly depressed as i wish there was something i could have done different. My husband and i have been trying to have our 2nd child for over 4 years. I feel like i let him and my family down. I'm starting to wonder if I'll be able to have another.
