I'm so sorry for those of you who have had a loss or are threatened with one. It is truly terrible. I went through that in February, and pray I never have to again, and my heart goes out to you mammas and your babies who will not see each other quite yet. I send you all strength and love and many healing vibes. I'm sure that these little souls for whatever reason were just not quite ready to join us yet....maybe they are having too much fun wherever they are now and just can't imagine coming to earth yet! Well, one day they will be ready and they'll discover that you mammas ROCK and they should not have waited so long and tormented us so much! This kind of loss is horribly, sickeningly hard and I send you all as much moral support as humanly possible. That's all I wanted to say, just that my heart goes out to you and the little lost ones.

I also had a m/c in May and am almost to the point of not wanting to look at the site in fear that another baby will be lost. My heart breaks for each momma and dad that looses a baby. I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you heal and feel better soon. Take time for yourself and family!

My heart breaks as I see more and more mamas having to go through a m/c in our ddc. Prior to this pregnancy I've had two miscarriages as well as losing my son shortly after birth. One m/c was this past October, and the other was this past April. I've written posts similar saying goodbye to two ddc's and my heart goes out to the mamas writing those same posts now.

I know, I've been doing double takes at the thread subjects thinking it was the same thread and that it couldn't be another one. Unbelievable, really. Yes, very sad. I'm so sorry.

I had the same thoughts when I started seeing all these posts. I am deeply saddened for all the Mamas who have lost their babies. My heart and prayers go out to all the families that have to go thru this and I hope you all have deep healing and support to help you get through this rough time. Much love to you all.

I also lost a baby in February and so the pain of such loss is pretty fresh for me. My heart breaks for these women because I know the sort of pain they are experiencing.

I'm thinking of all you mamas that lost little ones. I've been there and it is so so hard. The pain never really leaves, but it does lessen with time.

I haven't had a m/c, but I feel the same way you do....I've stopped visiting all but once or twice a week because hearing about so many m/c's is so saddening. I truely feel for the mamas who've lost their babies......

I am another one who had a loss in February. The women on the Pregnancy Loss board really helped me get through it. I don't know what I would have done without them.

Thinking of all the mamas who are struggling right now....

I too am having a hard time seeing so many new threads telling of losses. It seems like so, so many mammas have lost their little ones. I am sorry. I've had two early losses and I know it isn't easy. I hope you all can find the strength and peace and support you need right now in your lives.

The sea monkey has my money.

I am in the April DDC, but was wanting to post something similar.

Mama to 9 so far:Mother of Joey (20), Dominick (13), Abigail (11), Angelo (8), Mylee (6), Delainey (3), Colton (2) and Baby 8 and Baby 9 coming sometime in July 2013.   If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!

It is tough to see so many women having losses. I've had five miscarriages myself, the two most recent ones this past March and this past Oct. The pain does get easier. I don't think you ever "get over" a miscarriage. It's more that you get through it. Those angel babies will still be a part of you. And honestly, I wouldn't want it to be any other way. The hardest part for me was not knowing if I'd ever have a healthy baby again. Plus I was losing babies likely due to my body, not there being anything wrong with the baby. This time pg is my last chance and I'm 11.5 weeks. I'm still nervous but at least time is ticking and all is going okay. In the past, I knew I could try again. It was still tough, but knowing you have another chance is much easier than knowing it's the end of chances.
