    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...

    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...

    I have recently had a miscarriage.

    I'm only 24 but am so ready to be a mum. My boyfriend now wants to wait 6 months or so before we try again :( don't know how to react to that because he know I want one sooner, maybe it's my emotions taking over? I know we aren't financially ready for a baby so I do know he's...

    I had a traumatic miscarriage about 3 weeks ago.

    I was 13 weeks pregnant with my first. I developed a uterine infection (chorioamnionitis) that was caused by the Haemophilus Influenzae bacteria. A bacteria that is so rare, there are only 2-3 million confirmed cases a year worldwide. It had managed to get into my bloodstream...

    I'm only 18 and I recently had a miscarriage.

    I'm struggling with it so much because I have so much else on my plate right now to deal with and because of my age none of my friends understand. They think I should be happy that I'm not going to have to deal with a baby now but that's not how I feel at all. I don't understand...

    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...

    When I first found out I was pregnant,

    I posted about it on this site...expressing all the feelings and emotions I was having. I ended up being so excited to be a mom. I bought a journal to record my journey. I joined a bunch of mom forums to feel like I was apart of some loving fellowship. All I could think about...

    It's now been 5 months

    since I had a miscarriage. It was one of the hardest things I've ever experienced. The father of the child was amazing. He had a very hard time with it too, though. We were happily expecting a child, only for it to be taken away from us. I wouldn't wish that sort of pain on...

    I had a miscarriage at 11 weeks.

    My ex boyfriend broke up with me before I found the news and he was never there for me and when I got the news he's still not there for me. But I had like 5 people that were truly there for me better than my ex.

    Before I tell this story,

    I need to make some things known. I've always had irregular periods. Vastly irregular, actually. One month it will be 5 or 6 days late, and the next month, it may be 2 or 3 WEEKS late. However, I still ovulate the normal 2 weeks after a period. Now for the story. I lived with...

    I wasn't trying to get pregnant. I'm 26, but still not at a point in my life where I can have a child. I'm a professional athlete. I don't have a soft spot for children. I don't melt at the sight of babies and swoon the way most women do. But show me a puppy, oh my goodness...

    I've only ever told two (non-doctor) people.

    I was way too young. The father was the most horrible, terrifying, destructive man I've ever met. I was only a couple of weeks along. I'd probably make a **** mum anyway. But it was still my baby, you know, and sometimes it still bothers me.
