    I'm sorry for no personals, I'm going to have to take the time to read at a later date when my internet is going a bit faster.

    My history ... I have two beautiful living children, precious Ruby who was born with complex congenital heart disease and lived 9 days and lost Nikki at 13 weeks and Sam at 17 weeks. Nikki was Bella's twin so not much bleeding etc as Bella was still there and I had 2 d&c's with Sam.

    My recent events ... on tuesday the 14th of July my waters broke. I was 14 weeks pregnant with bub number 6. I had a scan on thurday the 16th in which it was confirmed that there was no hope. Saw my ob on the saturday and he asked me to wait and see if I could miscarry naturally. Roll on almost a week and I am waiting in his office on friday afternoon with nothing but very light bleeding. Whilst in his consulting room, my belly gets sore and I bleed all over him as he examines me - sent home as I am now miscarrying.

    It is now 6 days since I started bleeding (albeit lightly the first 3) and I am now soaking a super pad every 2 hours and have yet to pass anything even remotely significant. I have no idea if this is normal or not as this is the first time I have naturally, fully miscarried.

    Can anyone tell me if this is ok? I have a feeling that I may end up having to have a d&c anyway as nothing significant has been passed - is this anyone else's experience?

    Am I supposed to be having almost constant cramping? It gets really intense at times and then peters off for a couple of hours only to start getting more and more intense for 4-5 hours again.

    Sorry for the asw post, but I have asked this question of many people and have yet to receive any useful help - I was hoping that someone could give me some advice.

    It's hard enough knowing that I have lost another beautiful child without feeling like I am doing this on my own with no instruction manual ...

    Thanks, Ky

    Hi Ky,
    Umm when I first started miscarrying last friday the hospital said that unless I was soaking a pad every hours they weren't really interested... But if your really really concerned maybe try calling health direct on 1800 022 222. Theyre registered nurses so I'm sure they will be able to give you some info. And heading up to your local hospital wouldn't hurt. Worst that can happen is they will send you away again?

    I had very bad cramps for 1 day. But I had also been sitting in a car for 7 hours n when I went to the toilet blood would just run out TMI sorry.
    I'm so sorry for all of your losses

    Hi ky,

    I'm so sorry that you are going through this. My advice is to go back to your ob. Sorry to sound crude but after that many days of bleeding and cramping something should have passed.

    Once again... I'm so sorry - going through this once is bad enough but for women to have to go through it more than once is just damn unfair.

    to all of the new people that have sadly joined since I last posted, it is horrible horrible thing to have to go through but you will get lots of support and wonderful advice in here.

    BGBG please don't take this the wrong way but congrats on the negative HPT, heres to a big fat positive really soon and to go with it.
    Mm I am soo sorry for what you are going through, it truely does suck eggs.

    My heart is breaking for all of us go9ing through such horrible times right now but hopefully we can help each other get through it day by day.

    AFM I have gone back to work and although I don't think I was ready it is atleast taking my mind of what happened, at least now I can forget instead of dealing with it. I wish I was as strong as BGBG and do a hpt but even though mentally I know the baby is gone seeing a negative hpt would break my heart all over again.. I hand it to you BGBG. Some days I am good but others I really would like to disappear Anyway hopefully I wont stay away as long in between posts and start to get to know you all. Have a wonderful night and stay smiling.

    Thanks so much, on Monday night I passed bub and placenta. Unfortunately, after so much time, bub was to deteriorated to see what sex etc. Bleeding has slowed considerably. My ob has told me to ring if it escalates and he will have me in for a curette that day.

    Iím hating that this has happened, but secretly, Iím a little proud of myself and my body for being able to do this. I was always told that there was no way that I would ever be able to deliver vaginally or miscarry due to scarring on my cervix, and I have proven that particular specialist wrong! I have had three very wonderful caesars and am grateful that the option is there for me, but knowing that my body did what it was designed for, no matter how tragic has given me a bit of extra hope.

    I know, strange emotions, but really, thatís how Iím feeling.

    I will pop in again soon with personals Ö I just wanted to let you know that your advice and support was very, very appreciated!

    Ky I'm so sorry. I know what you mean, for me just getting pregnant twice has shaken 1 specialist. He told me not to worry about seeing him again unless we had trouble TTC because "you're clearly proving yourself to be normal".

    I doubt you could have told the sex anyway at 14 weeks. For us at 16 weeks it was not obvious even though bubs were intact.

    After getting my act together for a week or so I'm really feeling it again. I was home today (working from home which I don't do often) and I don't think that's a good idea. Unlike when I'm at work I bawled 3 or 4 times today and really felt like what's the bloody point and hit rock bottom at lunchtime. Got almost nothing done workwise and didn't even care. I'm working from home tomorrow too (boss is overseas) so I have to try to hold it together better.

    It's like now I'm over it enough to sound normal to everyone and they keep making it worse. I know they don't mean to but I'm interacting normally and they'll start saying "oooh I can't believe it, its so awful, oh poor you" and I feel like I have to comfort THEM. And of course it brings it all back to the surface so as soon as they're gone I crack up. I'm grateful that the secretaries at work are really good about it, they never mention it unless I do, but when I do (usually to do with suchandsuch happened when I was away) they just respond to mirror how I am. If I look sad they'll give a supportive smile, if I'm looking ok they'll just carry on.

    I don't mean to be critical, people don't mean to upset me. I know they mean well and probably think I'm looking too normal.

    It's only me again. We just went out n bought a bright blue pot and a rose bush called Woburn Abbey and finally laid our little girl to rest. I'm feeling better already, altho there were a lot of tears shed as we planted the rose bush over her

    But I'm hoping that this rose bush is going to bring us happiness. The flowers are the colour of which is a happy colour and we don't want to be sad forever. So now we just wait for the flowers to bloom

    Hope the rest of you are doing well
