I am a mom of two boys and a daughter.  I have experienced two miscarriages, one in January of 2002 and another one in March of 2010.

With my first miscarraige, the baby had died at 8 weeks, but I didn't find out until I was a little over 11 weeks along.  This was our first pregnancy, and I was devastated.  I opted to undergo a D&C the day after finding out. 

We were able to bury our baby through our hospital, who offered services quarterly to those who lose their babies early.  It helped to give me closure, which I am thankful for.

We went on to have three successful pregnancies.  Our sons are 7 & 9.

We began trying in 2008 and were so excited to get a BFP in February of 2010 but I knew something was wrong because as soon as I took the test and got the BFP, I started spotting.

I was right on my hunch and ended up miscarrying two weeks later.  This time, I passed the baby on my own and it was the most horrible experience I've ever had, but it has made me stronger.

After trying again for a year and some fertility testing, we were able to conceive our daughter who was born in March of 2012.

Hi, I am Angela, I have been married to my Husband Scott since October 1999. We have 4 boys, 1 girl, and two Angel babies.


My first loss was in June 2012. Everything was going along fine until my 12th week, I developed a dry but persistent cough, I was misdiagnosed as having pneumonia. It was persistent, and even with four courses of antibiotics, I couldn't shake it. I was somewhat reassured that all was well when I had an ultrasound at 14 weeks, the baby was perfect, nice heartbeat. Two weeks later, at a normal OB appointment we found out the baby died. We also found out my pneumonia wasn't pneumonia, it was Valley fever caused by a fungal spore in desert soil. I was induced, hemorrhaged, and then had an emergency D&E. We cremated our little boy, his name is Avery John.


In November 2012 we were thrilled to get a positive pregnancy test, I was nervous after having just had a loss, but hopeful. At 5 weeks I had a day of spotting... But it stopped, and three weeks later again, only this time it didn't stop, it continued 10 days. January 3, 2013, at 9 weeks, I had an ultrasound which confirmed the baby had passed away. I naturally miscarried later that day in the Dr office, while walking into the room to have a D&C. We opted to go ahead and have the D&C to control the bleeding and be sure everything was removed.


At this point we would love another baby. I can't deny I am scared to try. I love this group, and the ladies in it! I can't imagine going through this without all of your support and encouragement. ((((Hugs)))) to all.

Welcome Isabel. I am sorry for your loss of your sweet Ricky. I just want you to know that you are in a good safe place. The ladies in this group are so supportive, so feel free to post anything without fear. I like your boyfriends perspective, he sounds like a great guy. Losing a baby is a pain like no other pain, but slowly it will get easier, it's a slow process, but you will get there. ((((Hugs))))

Hello! My name is Amy. I am 28 years old and have been married for 9 years. I have 3 wonderful boys ages 7, 6 and 2 1/2 years old. I suffered a miscarriage in March of 2011. On superbowl Sunday Dh and I found out we were expecting. My youngest was only 5 1/2 months old. Everything was going great up until 7 weeks. I got really sick with a bad uti/kidney infection. I ended up in the er because I had a high fever, body aches, chills, lower back pain ect. I was told it was a very bad uti/kidney infection and sent home. I was put on antibotics and bed rest for the next week. I finally got into see my doctor a week later. They did an ultrasound and told me that the baby was measuring small. I was 8 weeks according to my LML but the ultra sound was measuring 6 weeks. At 9 weeks I started spotting. My doctor told me spotting is normal in early pregnancy not to worry. Well over the next day or so the spotting started getting heavier. The bleeding got heavy enough that my doctor advised me to go to the ER. After a couple hours we were told more than likely we were miscarrying. They sent me home on bedrest. I followed up with my doctor a few days later and he confirmed what the ER doctor told us. I was sent home to wait it out. I was devasted. I left the doctors office and sat in my car in the office parking lot and cried for 10 minutes. I knew immediately that I couldn't let this beat me. I wanted to try again as soon as we could. Dh had a different idea. 6 days after we got the confirmation Dh went out and had a vesctomy against my wishes. That just devasted me almost as much as the miscarriage did. I didn't speak to him for a week. To this day I don't think ONce fully expected what happened. Specially because my cousin and I were pregnant together. Her baby was born on my due date.
