Miscarriage & Still Birth Message Board

Miscarriage & Still Birth Board Index

I have miscarried twice in the past year and a half, so I understand the pain you're going through. Both of my miscarriages were earlier in the pregnancy (8 weeks & 5 weeks), but I was still devasted. These were my 1st 2 pregnancies, I dont have any other kids. I'm sure it must be even harder at 17 weeks, especially since you heard the heartbeat & were in your second trimester. I don't know if this was your 1st miscarriage or not, if you've had more than 1 then your doctor may be able to do some tests to see if there is a reason for it. I know that I had a very hard time dealing with both miscarriages, especially when my sister got pregnant shortly after my 1st, then a friend, and then a cousin. None of them had any complications (of course I'm happy for them) but it made it harder for me when I lost 2 in a row. No one undertands what it feels like unless they've experienced it too. I did get pregnant again shortly after my 2nd miscarriage, and the doctor put me on progesterone supplements. I am now 38 weeks pregnant & doing well. Getting pregnant again helped me get over the other losses, but it was still difficult for me. Family support always helps & you should talk to your doctor to see if they will do any tests. Agian I'm really sorry for your loss, and I hope you're feeling better soon. ;)
Hi RachP02,
Sadly this was my first pregnancy, I don't have any children. No matter how far it goes it is always a huge loss when you do want children and to miscarry, be it 8 wks & 5 wks like you or 17 like myself. i'm so sorry that you had to go through that twice but I'm glad for you that you are 38 weeks now. It must be such an enormous relief to have gotten that far, I really wish you the best of luck. My sister in law is also pregnant, she's due in January & I was due in February & my husbands cousin is due in the next few weeks & I work with them both so I imagine that it's not going to be easy for me. Even though I do feel very excited for them both I'm just trying to prepare myself for all the different emotions that are bound to be going around my head when it comes to it.
