    Default Miscarriage & loss support chat #4

    I am reminded of a quote from one of my favourite films: "If the sun were to explode, you wouldn't even know about it for 8 minutes because thats how long it takes for light to travel to us. For eight minutes the world would still be bright and it would still feel warm.
    It was a year since my dad died, and I could feel my eight minutes with him were running out." The further away I get from the day my baby died, the worse I feel.

    I feel like I can physically feel the loss from the tip of each strand of hair on my head, down to my toes. Does it ever get any easier?
    I had a MMC in February and had a D&C when I would have been 7+5. I was devastated and heartbroken. Pregnancy announcements really cut deep, and AF arriving brought the devastation back. I'm now 21 weeks pregnant and am 1 week away from the due date of the bub I lost. Falling pregnant again helped with the healing but it has been stressful, worrying that something is going to go wrong.

    Allow yourself to grieve for your bub. Take care x

    @feelinglucky I had 2 miscarriages this year .. It helps to talk about it and take care of yourself.

    @FeelinLucky yes it will get better. You will never forget your loss but with time you'll learn to cope with it. I've had 5 miscarriages and all have been very long and painful. But I just tell myself that they were not meant to be and something better is coming up for me. Although it's not always possible to remain positive.
    My advice to you is to please try to rest and take care of your diet as much as possible. Try to do something fun or anything that you like doing on a daily basis. For me, walking outside helped a lot. It is difficult to see women around you getting pregnant easily. At the time of my most difficult miscarriage, soon after I got the news of my Sil's pregnancy and then 3 girls at my work got pregnant at the same time. I was very happy for them but you can't help but wonder why it's not happened for you so easily. Please hang in there and take care of yourself. Feel free to come here and vent or complain as much as you want. Oh and I also had counselling which also helped.

    Hi, looking forward to reading all of your posts. I've decided to TTC again after giving up for years. I have 2 healthy kids but I've had 7 miscarriages and 1 ectopic pregnancy. I've been referred to a fertility specialist in the ACT, Dr Nicole Sides. She's terrific!! Enthusiastic and super productive. Not feeling overly enthusiastic yet although I'm confident in dr sides. Just had so much disappointment it's hard to feel positive. I'd better get reading, I'm so behind on terminology/treatment etc... Very interested in reading all your stories!! Cheers

    Hiya,

    Just thought I'd poke my head in and see if anyone is still about. It's been just over 6 weeks since I lost my twins at 17 weeks. I still have bad days where I feel like I will never have a baby. I know I will never have twins again and that breaks my heart....

    Hi @skeeter, just wanted to say sorry for your loss. I've had losses too, 3 early miscarriages, and 2 stillborn (20 weeks and 26 weeks). Gave birth to a healthy boy last year but not a day (or hour) goes by when I don't think about my other boys. It's heart wrenching but you'll pull through, I promise ❤️. Allow yourself time to grieve.

    Thanks @BB77 I also had two very early miscarriages last year. It's great to hear you had a successful pregnancy. It is getting better each day, but only with the hope of another baby. I feel that if that doesn't happen I will have trouble coping...

    @skeeter I couldn't read your post without saying how sorry I am for the loss of your twins.
    I had an early mc a few years back but have had a DD1 since then but sadly lost DD2 May-2016 in the second trimester so I can relate to your heartache. I felt desperate to fall pregnant straight after losing my daughter.

    Sorry to hear of your losses @VioletMay ... it is a desperate feeling, isn't it?

    I am just feeling lost tonight. For some reason the last couple of days have been bad, can't stop thinking about my babies and getting teary. Perhaps it's because tomorrow is my first full week back at work. The slap of back to reality really stings. I hate the days like this, I get to the evening and all I am doing is waiting until I can go to bed. I don't want to do anything...
