    Lida, that's great, congrats!

    I am new to this thread and miscarried on Christmas Eve.. I was only 4 and a half weeks although we fell pregnant through IVF so I knew I was pregnant for a week. I'm very lucky that I was only 4 and a half weeks but have had a hard time grieving about it. I've been pushing the thoughts away and continuing my day to day life with 2 DDs.

    For the first time in 2 years I am not ready to 'start trying' again... I'm in a very unfamiliar place... is this common? Have most of you felt you needed time to 'rest' before venturing back into the 'ttc' game?

    This is my first miscarriage after 2 successful (IVF) pregnancies... just not sure what expect... Big hugs to you all in this thread...

    Misty and Chelleylane - HUGE HUgs for you both!
    Chelleylane - you have been through a lot emotionally an physically! I am so sorry! And although it is sad to say I too just want to get into putting it all behind me...pretend it never happened really! Best of luck and take care. xx
    Misty - I read your posts in Ivf threads and
    you were getting so many positives! I am so very sorry for you loss! What an awful time to go through it all! Big hugs!

    AFM - i have been on 4 doses of oral Cytotec and still no progress with this miscarriage.....I have had some brownish wipes but no cramps, no red and no closure! I really want out and I think I am going to go for D&C as soon as I talk to FS tomorrow! It is just getting harder and harder (I would be just over ten weeks now!) AND I start back at work this week and I don't want to have to go through anything there...so i may need time off already...Oh dear...I am finding all of this overwhelming.

    Meltux - that's so hard, having your body hold on so hard, for so long. It was 3 days for me from when I found out bubs had passed(3 weeks earlier) to when I started bleeding, and then it was about 2 days from when I started bleeding til when i actually lost bub.

    If I could go back, I would have a d&c. I found it cruel having to go through an actual labour just to pass a 6 week old pregnancy, and a baby who was not quite 1cm. And knowing that I would just have emptiness at the end of it. One thing I have to say for it happening naturally is that after the contracting, I was no longer afraid to see the baby, I almost wished I could. It was surreal, but the labour made the baby more real, which in itself was hard to experience. Very bitter sweet. I was terribly sad for the baby in my head/heart but a little detached from the baby in my belly up until the 'labour'.

    I have had 2 drug free labours, I think it's a wonderful, healthy thing to experience, but all that pain for such a sad reason just doesn't seem useful to me (this is a hugely personal thing though... I think you do exactly what your gut says regardless of what ANYONE else says).
    Also, I think it would be so awful for it to happen/start at work. how hard for you.

    Afm - I am Still bleeding. It just never ends. It's still so heavy, and I am still having clots. I go for another scan in the morning to make sure it's all progressing well. I am glad, because things are starting to get a bit strange down there and I'm not at all sure it's normal, but then, this is my first, I don't know what's normal.

    Still early days, but we have decided to have one more pregnancy. We will let it happen when it happens, and we will pray and hope that it ends with a baby, but should it end this way again, I will not try again. This has been very hard. I'm very nervous at the idea of trying again. I desperately want my 3rd bub, I have always imagined 3. I don't feel finished, but it's such a conflicting emotion now.
    I will donate my eggs after the next pregnancy. I've always planned to be an egg donor when I finished having babies, and I am getting older and older... (duh!).

    Only other thing that is bugging me is my mums complete lack of... Anything. No support, no calls, no texts, no anything. And when i call, she doesnt want to talk about it, she dismisses it with a 'at least youve got your two beautiful kids. How are my adorable babies??' That, along with hubby refusing to take time off work has made for a pretty lonely time...

    Hi there,

    I just found thus thread and it's been so helpful to read all your stories. I'm having a miscarriage right now and it's a place of limbo..

    I'm clotting and bleeding and taking panadol and nurofen.

    I feel ok mentally after the initial shock,then I realized how lucky I am to have thus happen earlier rather than later. Something wasn't right so the pregnancy stopped progressing at 5 weeks. I Found out at 7-8 weeks though.. Missed miscarriage.. Started cramping and bleeding day after that though so at least I was prepared a little.

    The spotting started Saturday night and by yesterday morning the blood had turned heavy with clots.

    Soon as the blood started I changed. I knew it was over and my brain switched off..I was teary all day for the loss of what might have been.

    Now I just want it over with so we can get pregnant again.

    I also found my daughters hugs and kisses incredibly soothing!!!

    Morning Ladies not sure where i should post this but thought here would be a good place to start.Today I'm 5w1d pregnant my emotions are mixed as I've had 3 miscarriages May 03 6w my daughter was only 6 months old and cried my eyes out for 2 days thinking how would we cope i was only 20 and my partner earned 400 bucks a week again in July 10 not quite 5 weeks had four drinks and took 2 pain killers to help me sleep (maybe the cause)and again in June 11 5 weeks lifted heavy shopping bags outta the car and ate food from a deli (maybe another cause they say to avoid those types of things)so I was just wondering if anyone had gone onto having a healthy pregnancy after a few miscarriages, hearing other stories will put my mind to ease.We are hanging to get to the 12 week mark seems so far away tho,my doctors appointment isn't til Jan 27 she's constantly booked out weeks in advance. hope to hear something positive thanks ladies xx

    Mumofone - So sorry for all of your losses. I have not had multiple miscarriages but if I were you I would actually go to a specialist doc as they can monitor you as soon as you are pregnant and maybe give you progesterone etc to help implantation. I have a few friends who have done this after several losses and they have gone on to have babies. Good luck!

    Vinatage - so sorry you are going through this right now. Stay positive and strong!

    Chelleylane - other people will never understand a loss unless they too have had one. It is hard to shut out comments etc but if it was my mum saying that I probably would ask her to be less insensitive and just give me a bit of support right now. Oh that is a hard one though. Good luck and happiness will be yours again soon. So sorry for you heartbreaking loss!

    AFM - After 2 weeks of waiting to miscarry, 4 cytotec pills later and then a chat withFS - I have had a D&C and it seems a really dead, heavy weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I am so relieved and feel closure. I can move on finally from this sadness. The only problem was waiting at the surgery for a while after I was booked in as they had an emergency. So when i finally get in, the anethesist (?) tells me a huge story about Avatar and how he has seen it 27 times....lol...and then I am drifting off dreaming about Avatar...next thing I am awake to smiling nurses and offered milo and sandwiches. I cried when DH came in to collect me but that was so much pent up sadness and anxiety so i immediately felt better. Now, I have had breakfast and preparing to rest today...Sex in the city dvd's and some chocolates.
    I am so sad I had to go through this but also feel stronger because of it all.
    My heart breaks for everyone who is or has had a loss. It is a truely sad time.

    Hi VintageLover,

    Sorry you're joining us here. You were in the August DIG, weren't you? I think you joined as I was leaving

    Hope you are doing ok. You sound like you are handling it well, and like you have good support, which is wonderful.

    ETA: How far into the process are you? From my reading, some had contraction pain during their miscarriage and others not. Supposedly it had to do with how far you were. I was only 6 weeks when bub passed, 9 and a bit weeks when I m/c and was told by the doc that it would look and feel like a bad period, but he couldn't have been further from the truth, and having been told this made me so unprepared for the pain of losing bub. I hope it's ok to say this, I am hoping I won't worry you, but I feel I should have been prepared for the physical side of it.

    I SO hope this can happen gently for you, that your body has already done the majority of the job.

    ----------
    Glad to hear you feeling better Meltux, it MUST be a weight off, after waiting as long as you have.
    ----------

    I had another scan yesterday to make sure it's all gone, and it is, and the endometrium is back down to 4mm (from 17mm last Wednesday) so that's good. I think the bleeding might be stopping, it's just pink spotting now. And today is the first day in 10 days my back and lower abdomin haven't felt crampy and achey.
    Has anyone else felt like their hoo-haa was an overfilled water balloon? It's been so painful. Hopefully that's gone today, too.

    Hmm... At the moment I am sitting at library story time with my daughter.

    I'm in between two breast feeding mothers and there's another newborn and two pregnant mummy's.. Ahhh dear...

    I'm going ok really though.

    Bit of cramps and bleeding but hoping the worst passed on Sunday.

    I had a scan Friday that showed fetus was 5weeks when should have been 7/8 weeks. I was heartbroken but even though they were trying to say my dates were wrong, I knew it was over.

    They took bloods, then the next day I got the results that my levels were lower.

    ... Sorry activity time..

    Post in a sec..

    Turns out it was a baby group meeting here...

    Typical..

    Started cramping and loosing dark blood sat night.

    Drank more than a few ciders that night. Tried to kill my sadness.

    Woke 5.30 am it had started. Cramping was bad. Blood loss and clots.

    I'm still taking panadol just hope it all passes naturally ..

    Scan Monday.

    It sucks.

    We told our daughter.

    Was sad watching her look at the new babies just now..
