Not all miscarriages are caused by a 'dysfunctional' fetus. Some are caused by problems (that are often fix-able) in the mothers body, such as low progesterone. Its hard to see it as a miraculous event when you're losing your baby.
8 Weeks yesterday, today was a good day, after several days of feeling crappy, it was nice to feel good most of the day, and not throw up!
