We lost the baby

It has been almost a week after my last post here in mylot. My last post narrates how elated we are because we were gifted two clear lines 3 days before my birthday. It was a sad birthday for me because on that same day we were told that we no longer have the baby. This was after bleeding for almost 2 days and after having spent most of those 2 days in bed. It was really a heartbreaking news for us but we have to move on for our son. I guess the only thing that we can have as consolation is that I could still get pregnant sometime soon. We just have to rest and pray more for another baby.

I'm really very sorry to hear that happened to you. I do understand how you feel. I also have a miscarriage last December. I was bleeding a lot, and the next thing I knew, the doctor told me that I have a miscarriage. I was so sad that I cried a lot for the lost child. It's really very devastating but I do know I have to move on for my 2 children as well. (By the way, I had a near miscarriage when having my second child too. I was bleeding a bit, and the doctor quickly ask me to rest for one week or I may risk losing her.) Be strong and positive. You will be able to conceive again. Happy mylotting.

First of all, let me say that it's perfectly okay to grief and cry for the loss of a baby. I feel your pain. I had a miscarriage in May last year when I was just 9 weeks pregnant. It was the case of a blighted ovum, I started spotting and later went to the emergency when it turned to bleeding only to be told that I was having a miscarriage. It was really heartbreaking as my hubby and I were looking forward to having our first baby. We really love children and the pressure from my family (it's just me and my bro - we're Asians, he doesn't want kids and my parents have been dying to be grandparents for the past 10 over years)...well, it was hard, especially when my parents blamed me for losing the baby. What helped me cope was my hubby and in-laws' support - my stepmother-in-law had been through two miscarriages and my sis-in-law is a doctor - which made me realize that not a lot of people talk about such things because they don't know how to help people deal with it. A miscarriage is common among women and especially among first-timers. To look at it positively, you can say that your body is doing its job by getting rid of non-viable embryos AND that you are able to conceive! Don't worry about now being able to get pregnant. I got pregnant again November and I'm now in my 28th week. I know of many other ladies - a good friend in particular who got pregnant one month after her miscarriage and she's in her 32nd week. So grief, cry and mourn but don't lose faith or hope, k? *hugs*

I am sorry for you that you lost the baby, however as you said you can get pregnant again and I am sure that one day you will hold your child. Wish you good luck and never give up in life.

I am so very sorry to hear that you have lost your baby. It must be really sad to have a miscarriage. I know that you were so excited to find out that you were pregnant and now you must be really upset to have had the bleeding occur to you. I hope that you will take things easy and have some rest to let you recover as much as possible. You might be able to get pregnant again later this year. Good luck.

My heart goes out to you. That is very sad. The sadness I feel everytime I see only 1 line on the pregnancy test (been trying to conceive for 16 months now) would not match the sadness you feel because you almost have the baby. But do not despair. Things happen for a reason. Just rest and be back to your healthy self and try for another baby again.

oh sweety, I am so sorry for your loss. Just keep your chin up and they always say things happen for a reason. Cherish the time with your other son and take care of yourself before moving on with another pregnancy. You want to make sure your health is up to par to carry and nourisher another bundle. I have a cousin who just lost at christmas time and she is pregnant again now. It hurts when you know you lost, but be proud you may carry again. Again, I am sorry for your loss and will pray for you and your family.

That would be a very sad birthday. I am very sorry for you. I'm not married, but when I do, I would love a baby and be devastated if that happened to me. This is a hard time, and you will get through it. Make sure the baby is always in your heart, but not in a sad way. You should try again for another baby. :)
