Hi there
I was sad to read about your losses. It's just so tragic. Unfortunately, I have been hanging out here for the last two months trying to make sense of my miscarriage as well. I was 17 weeks (or so I thought) and miscarried in the middle of the night at home. It sucked. I am trying not to dwell on it too much anymore. I know that I did not do anything purposely to hurt my unborn baby but I can't help but blame myself. I just recieved the results of the pathology tests that were performed on the pregnancy products and the baby. All the tests results came back normal - its so hard to understand why this happened. And to actually deliver a small dead baby is really rough.
I too had horrible morning sickness - I puked every day from weeks 7-13. At around thirteen weeks my nausea subsided and I just thought that I was getting into the 2nd trimester when you are supposed to feel better. But I lost other symptoms too, like heartburn and I was really starting to feel better. I feel like I should have known.
The other thing that's been bothering me is that when I got to the hospital the nurses told us they thought our baby was a boy. I just found out that it was in fact a girl. We named the baby Jack. It doesn't change anything as we would have been happy either way. But I just can't help but feel like it would have been the perfect addition to our family. I'm sorry I'm rambling on about myself.

I think that time does help. i just wish that others could be more understanding. I know that they don't know what to say, etc or are just afraid to talk to you about it. I know everybody is different and deals with pain differently. And many people have said that they don't want bring it up for fear of upsetting me. But I found that those who were most supportive are those that have been through something like that or have small children. If you can (and you want to) seek out a support group. I think it helps to know that others have felt as you do.
Best wishes on healing well
