    Meg hope you are ok. It is terrible having those pains and going to work. You are very brave. In a way I wanted to go back to work to have normality in my life and to take my mind off things. When I was at home I dwelled on the m/c and felt depressed.

    Woody. Hope you get some answers soon and the bleeding eases. Postpartum bleedign can last for less so hopefully you don't have to put with 6 weeks of it.

    Mrs H I really hope you are not miscarrying. Do you have pain? I had bad bleeding with my DD and with the m/c. For me the difference was with the m/c I had back pain and stomach pain and when pregnant with C I had spotting and bleeding but no pain. It must be so scary having that. Are you going to the hospy for a check up or just waiting to see what happens?

    Without peanut welcome and I am so sorry for your loss. It must have been heart breaking to hear the heart beating and then it stopped.

    Mel hope you get some answers from the hospy and you get to bring your boy home. If you don't feel like making the call ask maybe your mum or husband to do it. I hope you're ok and that your bleeding goes away soon.

    How's everyone else going?

    AFM: I am ok but sometimes I wonder if I am just acting like a normal person when really deep down I am hurt. I don't know if that even makes sense.....

    Noah was cremated yesterday so I know his autopsy has been completed but still haven't heard back from the hospital for a follow-up appointment with them, did you just see your normal doctor for results? We went through a private service so they will call us to collect his ashes but as far as where to go and what to do now to get the results from the past and a plan for the future (I'll probably need a stitch if we try again), I'm pretty lost.
    I called the hospital today and Josh's ashes are ready for collection too. I asked about the autopsy report and was told that it may not be available for another 6 weeks even tho the autopsy is complete. Im pretty sure they send it out in the mail. I went to my GP Ob to get my amnio results. If you call the hospital they will be able to let you know who you need to see/call.
    I have a follow up appointment booked at KEMH for another 4 weeks time. I guess its like a follow up health check to make sure im recovering physically.
    In regards to trying again the doc wants me to take folate sups for a few months and wait until my period is back to normal. He said hubby and I should be right to try in Sep if we feel we are ready. He doesnt think there is any reason for the same thing to happen next time but will do extra scans early to make sure everything is ok.

    6 weeks of bleeding... that was how long i had it after having DD. Was hoping that the bleeding wouldnt last that long. No sign of it stopping any time soon tho.

    As for the future, I think you just need to take things one day at a time. You will know when your ready to welcome another baby. Now that the doctors know about your cervix, they will be able to monitor you next time and if needed insert a stitch so you can carry to term. I dont know too much about it but from what ive read the chances of carrying to term are pretty high. I know it doesnt mean very much to you right now tho

    I thought i was doing well then saw a new born baby boy at the shops and had a cry. I still think everyday how pregnant i should be. It sucks that we both are going through this. I so wish things were different.

    Yep - I understand completely. I feel like that sometimes.

I'm getting in a better head space because I'm trying to keep busy. It just feels like it's gonna take so long till I get pregnant again. It took so long the first time... Oh well. I just wanted to check in and see how everyone was going. I'm so greatful for everyone sharing their stories of courage and strength. It makes it easier knowing there is other people that know exactly how I'm feeling.
    Glad your feeling a little better emotionally. Sorry you were in pain today tho
    that you dont need to wait too long before seeing again.

    chances are ill probably be joining you all back in here this week.....
    My are crossed for you that your bub is sticky and the bleeding isnt serious. Are you due for AF? I know some women can still get a mini period around the time thier period is due. I had spotting for the first 3 months when AF was due when i was pregnant with my daughter.

    Thank you melj83 and mummylip. I needed to be back at work to get my mind off things and back to a bit of normality. We are going to try again soon when both our heads are in the right space. I just wondered how long everones pain was after a mc. It has been 6 days now and still get quite a bit of pain particularly on one side. Is this normal? I hope everyone has a stress free and relaxing weekend of self healing.

    The doctor said if the bleeding and pain don't stop after a week or so then to have another scan. Hope I don't have to. It will be a week tomorrow night

    Meg - Hope the pain and bleeding ease for you soon. With mine I had bad pain and alot of thick red blood for approx 3-4 day, it took about 10 days for the bleeding to stop completely. Glad to hear you'll be going back for another scan soon if things don't change. I bet it's the last thing you feel like doing but it'll be good to know what's happening down there.

    Mummylip - Your last post about how you're feeling now... spot on and certainly makes sense! I havn't cried since Thursday (it had been a daily event before then), going about my life like normal now but inside I am still far from happy. Guess it's quiet normal though and when I look back 2-4weeks I have come a long way.

    Withoutpeanut - Welcome and I'm very sorry for your loss. I read your blog and found it so very heartbreaking. I can relate to so much that was written, I hope things keep moving forward for you. I think it's great that your writting about peanut and sharing your feelings/experience with other women. I had a good cry reading it but at the same time it felt good - thanks.

    Mrs Hunidue- I'm really hoping that you only have spotting. I'm terrified of the same thing when I fall again. A friend told me she bled a lot, clots and fresh blood, through her entire pregnancy with her daughter- now a healthy 9 years old. My Dr told me not to worry until I had fresh blood, clots and pain. Obviously things did not work out well for me this time, but I'm really hoping we don't see you here

    Mummylip- These days I appreciate the things that make me cry, because it helps me get the release that I need. Otherwise I can just feel awful all day with no resolve. I even bought a little kid's book called "Feeling Sad" about a little sad duckling because it really touched me.

    Autumnlove- Thankyou for the comments about my blog. It really does help me, and I think it's helped a few other people too. I was hoping more people would step forward wanting to share their stories with me, but I still get a lot out of the writing to Peanut. People tell me to keep my mind off it, but that's not how I process things.

    For those who are bringing home ashes instead of babies- I hope you find some peace celebrating their too-short lives and the love you still have for them.

    AFM- I would have been 20 weeks yesterday. The gap between what "should" have been and what is is far too painful to measure.

    I have returned to work today after suffereing my second missed miscarriage in 8 months.

    I can't believe it happened again, I really thought we were in the clear.

    The doctors are taking it seriously because I'm young, healthy and both miscarriages have been the same. I've been past 10 weeks, both missed miscarriages. I'm glad to have their support, it's so heart breaking.

    I have a referral for a specialist, so hopefully I get some answers. It's hard to comprehend that my body might be doing this, that maybe the babies have been fine, it's my screwed up body that's ruined everything.

    to everyone going through this terrible thing called trying for a family.

    Preggle- so sorry you find yourself back in here, and I really hope you get the medical help and tests needed to figure out what went wrong. Don't be too hard on yourself or your body, sometimes things don't go to plan, and sometimes our bodies need a little or a lot of help to achieve our dream. Hugs xo
