    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...

    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...

    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...

    Father's Loss

    When I was 19 I was in a FWB relationship

    that I ended up falling for. I got pregnant and had a miscarriage. I never told anyone but some close friends about it. He never knew and neither does my family. I cried for weeks straight about it and now I feel like that is probably my only chance to be a mother.
