I'm still bleeding from the mc I just experienced.... I guess I put my faith in my body. It knows when it's ready to support life and when that life is supportable.

 I had a miscarriage in december. You have to allow yourself time to greive, a loss is a loss. I just hoped for a miracle out of it, and am now almost 26 weeks pregnant with a baby girl. I took comfort in the fact that it was nothing I did, or could have prevented, and that it occurs more often than we think.

I lost a baby in 2007 at 16 weeks. That was the only baby that I had ever tried to get pregnant with. My other two children were not planned at all. I was so excited and then I went to the doctor and his heart had stopped. I had heard him at 12 weeks, but I just felt like something was wrong that day, and I was right. I had to be induced and give birth to him. It was EXTREMELY difficult at the time, but when I saw my little 3 year old boy walk in the room later that day I immediately felt a million times better. I got the time to say goodbye though, like so many do not. I even have a box with a few pictures in it, that I don't really ever open, but I know it is there. I feel blessed that he wasn't born with the issues that he would have had and that he did not have to suffer only to pass while experiencing pain. That is what helps me feel better, to know that he did not have to suffer.

For our first miscarriage, which devastated me for months, we planted a tree in honor of the precious soul we never got to meet. This gives me some comfort, knowing that there is something alive, growing, and beautiful just outside our window. It has taken me more than 2 years & a second miscarriage to finally stop crying. A miscarriage is a horrific event, disappointing, painful, and unforgettable.

My husband and I have been trying to concieve our for chid for 3 years. We have had 4 miscariage in those 3 years. About 10 months ago we went to an infertility specialist and found out why I keep miscarrying. I have had good times where I am ok with how our life has been laid out. Then I have had some pretty dark times. I didn't take it very well when I found out a family member was pregnant with twins. Everyday I try to be a good person, the kind of person that I would want my future children to be like. I don't know if it is in God's plan for us to have a family, but I try everyday to put my faith and trust in hands.
