    I had a miscarriage a week ago.

    It was my first pregnancy and I just feel empty. I've never drank, smoked or done drugs and I made sure my body was in good condition for the day that I have kids. I have been with the daddy for about 5 months. I was 6 weeks pregnant. I only knew for a few days but I instantly...

    In March of 2012, I had the Essure procedure.

    For those that might not be aware, the Essure procedure is supposed to be a form of permanent birth control. Two coils are inserted into the fallopian tubes and triggers the body into forming scar tissue around those coils thus blocking contact between the ***** and egg. Usually...

    I had recently had my daughter

    and had finally kicked out her father, who was abusive and controlling towards me, when I found out I was pregnant again. I instantly knew I didn't want it, and when my ex happened to call at the same moment I confessed to him. Before even mentioning such an idea to him, he told...

    It's been just about a year

    since I lost my baby. I'm not going to tell the story again of how it happened. Instead, I want to talk about my battle with anemia that came after it happened. My doctor explained to me that anemia does happen in pregnancy if you don't stay on top of your diet. The baby needs...

    even happened and then others it feels like I'm still going through it all. It's crazy how things happen. I never wanted children and have always had physical ailments that made me believe it wasn't even an option for me. Out of nowhere it hit me that I just knew I was pregnant...

    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...

    When I was married, I had two miscarriages.

    The doctor said that the fibroid tumors in my uterus were so many, that they pushed the embryo off in one instance, and crushed it in the second. My husband left me then, and I was devastated for both the loss of my babies and then ultimately my marriage because I could not...

    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...

    Father's Loss
