There are so many words of encouragement to all the mothers who have lost a baby but what about the fathers? Is it not half theirs too? What do they get, make sure you take up some of the chores and don't get too freaked out if she bursts into tears. Oh yeah, she may not want to have sex with you because it's a physical reminder to what she lost.
Two weeks past the event. I have accepted the reality of the miscarriage but I didn't think I'd still be dealing with the physical aspect of it. How can I go on to the next part of my grief and loss while I'm still suffering the bleeding and other side effects of it all.
Well my names Mona and I'm a 24 year old first time mommy (hopefully). I had a pregnancy loss in may of this year and well still feel some sadness towards it. I am currently pregnant now but for some reason dont feel excited. I worry all the time, I never talk to the baby, my husband started noticing things about me that i didnt even notice.
Well, I just found out I was pregnant yesterday. I have had 2 miscarriages so far, both of them in the first 10 weeks. Every time I go to the bathroom, I expect to see blood. I want to be excited, but I can't. I'll just get heartbroken again. I know I'm not the only one out there, but I just wish I could carry a child. I hope this time is different....
We've all been there. The moment someone says something hurtful about the loss of our baby. I say it's time to hold our heads high, reclaim our privacy and space, and let people know that what they say is not acceptable. Learn how to educate "the ignorant," "the indignant" and "the idiot" so their next response can help heal a friend facing pregnancy loss.
I had three positive home pregnancy tests, all different brands. But when I went for my blood test, it was negative. Why? Causes for false positives include...
Sigh, I'm so frustrated with ttc though I know I shouldn't be. We've only been ttc for 5 months now and I'm already frustrated. I realize theres couples that have been ttc for years without any luck and I suppose I wouldnt be as frustrated if I didn't get pregnant almost instantly the first time. I got pregnant within 2 months of ttc, mind you I was on bc for 7 years (including 4 cycles of depo--which i stopped as soon as i was informed of the effects, living two hours away from my SO, and only actually "trying" 4 times!), it ended in a m/c and I haven't been able to get pregnant since.
So I find myself wondering how many years will pass, before the anniversary date of losing the baby will not shock me. By now she'd be five, and looking forward to her fifth birthday...
I'm learning how to define myself as a mother now. It's no longer the innocent cheery version, that you find in the Sears catalogue, but it's also not the life of someone who 'mis-handled' their pregnancy.
