    I have had 8 miscarriages.

    The one was at 18 weeks when I delivered a baby girl. It has been a process through the years to deal with each one. I understand the medical reasons for this and have had to stick to this in order to not allow the miscarriages to effect my soul. I appreciate my 15 year...

    Lost And Found

    I remember the days very well. The physical pain, the emotional hurt and the grieving. The first time, the second, the third and a few more over the years. I went numb. Time stood still for a while. Then I remember I was not the only one in pain, hurting and grieving. I...

    I had a miscarriage at 9 weeks.

    Not that far along but enough to know I was pregnant. My child would be turning one in a few days. I've since met my fiancé but I can't talk to him about it. He knows it happened before we met but other than that, I can't talk to him. We recently had a friend go through a...

    Commonplace Occurrences

    The thing about miscarriages is that they are very, very common. Many women miscarry without even realizing they were pregnant in the first place.  Conception and growth and development of babies is a far more complex thing than you might believe, given population statistics...

    Grieving

    I don't want to talk to people I know about it. I don't want to share my misery with people, even online. But this grief is building inside me, and I fear its release. Everywhere I look, there are children or things pertaining to children. Its been 8 days since my miscarriage...

    I've had 2, both when I was 12 weeks along.

    I always feel awkward when people express their sympathy to me because I'm not sad about it. I will meet them in heaven someday and it will be awesome! :)

    I lost my baby in may 2012,

    at 6 or 7 weeks. It was the worst experience of my life. I went through a major depression for several months. The boyfriend at the time was very happy that I miscarried. I was alone with this pain.

    I was so excited, I was finally showing and I was glowing in pregnant bliss. I met with my husband at the doctors office and we both couldn't wait to see our baby. We walked in the room and started the exam, the tech checked my uterus and then the baby. She looked at me and...

    This dream was easily the worst one.

    Normally, when I dream about him, he's drowning in a pool, and every time I get a little closer to saving him but I never can. This one was completely different. The dream started in a different context. Some guys were trying to hurt my sister and we ended up stealing a bus (I...

    Sadness

    I got pregnant on my wedding night. How is that for timing.  I have an extremely active and stress filled life.  I was so shocked.  I just couldn't believe I was actually pregnant.  I was just tired and nauseated which I thought was from working so much to cover for the time...

    A Chapter Ended Before It Began...

    I want to start by saying, I am not a woman. I can't know how a woman feels when she loses a child, nor do I claim to compare my pain to it. This is a story, from my point of view, from watching what she went through and having to carry on and help hold her up as well. In 2009...

    At three months. Just the other day.

    My husband blames me. He says it's my fault, and that I should have died instead of the baby. I've been with him six years. He's all I've ever known, and j don't know what to do. I'm so lost, and sick of people acting like it would be so easy to walk away.

    Father's Loss

    children. When I found out I was pregnant, I think I cried for two days straight. But strangely, there was a part of me that genuinely wanted the child, and after four days of the worst indecision I've ever experienced, I ultimately chose to keep it. I was excited. I probably...
