Miscarriage & Still Birth Message Board

Miscarriage & Still Birth Board Index

I have had 3 m/c's myself and it doesn't get any easier. I have 2 children who I had prior to my m/c's. I'm sad I had the m/c's and wasn't sure if I wanted to try again for our 3rd or not. I didn't want to go through the pain again. It's been a little over 1 year since I had my first m/c and I really try not to dwell on it. That may sound harsh to some women, but I have 2 children at home that I need to care for. I am VERY lucky that I had my boys to come home to after having each loss, not everyone has that. I was able to look at them and be very grateful for what I do have. A very close friend of mine who is a doctor explained to me after my first loss that it takes hundreds of things going right in order to have a child, and only one thing to go wrong to loose it. It made sense to me and helped me to accept what had happened to me and my babies. My sister in Law has been pregnant with me at the same time, each time. She also has 2 children and then had 3 m/c's as well. I think it helped each of us to have each other to talk to and to share our stories and hurts with. I am pregnant again and the worry of having another m/c NEVER goes away. I look at women like my mother and count my blessings that my m/c's happened early (1 and 2nd tri). My mother went full term and lost her baby 1 week before her due date because of a knot in the cord. May 4th will have been her "birth day" and every year my mother grieves a bit. I don't know how I would have made it through a loss such as that and again thank my lucky starts that I have my boys!
