Pregnancy & Miscarriage
April 13, 2012 8:59am CST
Why does society make it seem that it is so easy to get pregnant and carry a pregnancy to term? When my husband and I decided to start trying to have babies, it took us 11 months to get pregnant and then we had a miscarriage. We waited 3 months to start trying again and got pregnant 3 months after trying. 9 months later we welcomed to most amazing little boy. I am so grateful for him and I can't imagine my life without him. He is just over 2 years old now and we found out 3 weeks ago that I was pregnant again! 2 weeks later, I started spotting which turned into bleeding. I go in today to see if there is anything left. I know it's a very personal subject but I sometimes wish there was more information out there about how common miscarriage is. It's nobody's fault and it happens so often.

My husband and I wanted a child so so bad and we tried and tried. I finally got pregnant after a year of trying and had a miscarriage. My husband and I were heart broken. We stopped trying for 6 months after. Then when we felt a little emotionally recovered we tried again and finally had our oldest daughter. It is a lot more common than people tell you. I thought we would get pregnant and have a baby, end of story. It never really occured to me that this could happen, not to me I thought. It should be more known than what it is. I do not know if its genetic but my mother and both my sisters have also had miscarriages. I hope everything is okay with you. I hope its not happening again to you. =(
