  1. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    my nephew was born an angel earlier this week. i can't find the right words to put in a card for his parents. i know to use R's name when referring to him (it's a wonderful name, too) but i don't know how to convey what i'm feeling. any suggestions on what to say, and more importantly, what NOT...
  2. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    I won't go into the long story of what happened to me - it's already posted on this board - it's called "2 weeks ago." I'll spare you the details. Anyway.. have any of you felt like your midwife, doctor or hospital let you down and possibly caused (or at the very least didn't prevent) your...
  3. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    Hi, all. I had some spotting at 8w1d and got a transvaginal u/s which showed a 6+ week embryo with no heartbeat. Though it was nearly impossible for me to have been less than 7w3d, we held out a little hope. At 9w0d, another transvaginal u/s showed exactly the same thing as the previous...
  4. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    I am 11 weeks pregnant with what appears to be a blighted ovum. I have some light spotting and I'm wondering what the risks are for doing light exercise while waiting for a natural miscarriage. I know that you shouldn't exercise while spotting during a "threatened" miscarriage but what if the...
  5. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    I had my loss almost 6 months ago and I am still having such a hard time getting through this grief. I just can't find a way to get on with things. We have been struggling with ttc for ten years. We were blessed to have one dd through IVF a few years ago. I am really physically and emotionally...
  6. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    Hi, all I've been a member here for a short while - I used to be a subscriber to the print mag and was a member on here with a forgotten username several years ago when my kids were tiny, something that feels like a life time ago - and I recently re-joined and started reading again recently...
  7. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    I am new here. I don't exactly know what is going on but I'm hoping if I tell you my story, someone can help me understand this. I apologize if I gross anyone out, but I really don't have anyone else to talk to or ask about this. Last month I was late putting my new 'ring' in (birth control) by...
  8. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    Hi, all I hope this question is appropriate for the community; I couldn't find anywhere stating otherwise. A friend suggested trying this question here, as she thought you all would likely be able help me. My question is this: Monday, the pregnancy I was carrying was discovered to be ectopic...
  9. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    I am new to this site. And I would like to thank each and every one of you for your posts on here. I have found them so helpful! I found out I was pregnant March 13. My hubby and I hadn't been trying, but we weren't avoiding the situation either. We were pleased to find that we were going to...
  10. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    I have always felt this way, but I had never read this until now. I just had to share. It was posted on the Grief and Loss board. http://mommyfriend.com/2010/04/30/spirit-baby/ Hoping everyone's Spirit Baby comes home!
  11. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    I just want to say that Michelle Duggar is a brave lady and I applaud her for letting the world share in this loss with her family. I think all to often pregnancy loss is just swept under the rug like a dirty little thing no one wants to talk about, but it needs to be talked about! My mom's...
  12. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    5 weeks after the baby has stopped growing, I finally miscarried today. I only found out that the pregnancy had ceased two days ago, so in a way, I`m lucky that I didn`t have to wait and see for 5 weeks, and that I was prepared that this might happen. Otherwise, what happened tonight wouldve...
  13. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    Hi. I had a D&C on Monday. The bleeding was light that day and the following two days I had spotting only when I wiped. Today (Thursday), the bleeding seems to have picked up a little. It's still light, but more than just spotting. Sort of between spotting and light flow. Yesterday, I...
  14. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    Can we share on this topic? I'm a big, big believer in the universe, in the sense that we are confronted only with experiences that are meant to bring us closer to a greater truth, and that will make us grow spiritually and emotionally. Which means that right now, in the mist of a devastating...
  15. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    I just found out this morning, through an US, that the foetus (i can't call it a baby, right now) stopped growing 4 weeks ago, and somehow, my body didn't miscarry. I'm waiting for news of my midwife. I guess now I have to get a D and C to clear things out. I'm upset, obviously, but more angry...
  16. Pregnancy and Birth Loss
    I am 20 weeks with my 4th baby. Never had a problem in pregnancy, never had a miscarriage. Went in for a routine prenatal today with my midwife and she could not find the heartbeat. Went for my first sonogram and baby was not alive. I am completely devastated and grief stricken. I am a homebirth...
