    I don't know how to feel right now.

    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 lost my baby this weekend.

    I am completely devastated. My heart broke into a million pieces. Everything was going great. My husband and I were so excited about having our second child. Then, without warning, I started bleeding. At first it was a little bit. I held out hope that it was going to be "ok...

    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...

    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 would never wish an unhealthy pregnancy on

    anyone, not even my worst enemy. There's no greater pain than feeling a life inside of you and then having it ripped away from you too soon. But it drives me insane to see all the things the woman around me that are pregnant are doing. Smoking, hanging out in bars and still...

    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 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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Father's Loss

    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...
