Miscarriages Happen To Teens Too

I was three months along, almost four when it happened. I was in bed asleep with a felt this painful cramp on my side. I knew right then what was happening. I went to the bedroom and saw that I was bleeding.



At the ER the nurses were all very nice and friendly but the doctor was a jerk. I guess he thought I was just some other teen mother even if I was 19 with my own place, job and car. Maybe he was just tired since it was late at night.



After an x-ray, I was wheeled into a hallway with a window. I watched the sun come up, it was then that I cried for the first time. I was given some meds and sent home.



I have an appointment the next week setup for an Ob/Gyn which I called to cancel. The nurse said I should come in anyway just to check. I am glad I did, if not I might have died.



The miscarriage was not complete. He waited to do a DC right then in the hospital next to his office. I told him I couldn't because I drove myself and my family lived in the next town. Two days later I returned for the DC.



It has been 7 years since I had the miscarriage. I think back on what could have been and how my life would have been very different. Sometimes I feel sad and hurt but then I know my time will come one day.

I just have to say, I understand. I didn't have the ER experience. My mom just told me to stay in the bathroom until the bleeding slowed, then to go take a nap. I don't know if I'll ever recover, and it's been two years. I'm 18 now and I feel so empty, like my life has no meaning or direction and I don't know what to do or who to talk to. I am so sorry that any of you ever had to experience this. It really is the worst thing I ever could have imagined happening.

Sorry you had to go through this. Yes it can happen at any age. I do not know what it is like to go through this but have had family members that had this happen so I understand. I know you will always wonder. Trust that it will happen. I wish you the best and hope one day you are blessed with a beautiful child.

2 years ago when I was 16 I lost my baby do to a defect with the placenta. After the miscarriage I had a D&C to stop bleeding. Months later I was diagnosed with endometriosis. Today I was told a hysterectomy is in my best interest. I have never felt so alone as I do right now.

Im almost 16 and i just lost my baby at two months... How do you stop thinking about the baby... I just want to hold him and hes gone and i have nobody to talk to...

I'm going through a miscarriage right now at about six weeks in, all by myself. I would never wish thus pain on anyone else...

I was fifteen and he was sixteen,my best friend, helped me through a rough home life. I never expected to get pregnant my first time. I was nine weeks pregnant when I lost our child. I've never told him because my mom never let me grieve she took me to the hospital and ignored that I just lost a child by putting me on birthcontrol and trying to send me to theropy. I got locked up for three years after and when I got out couldn't cope with the memories and the same conditon I left so I left state for 8 years. I moved back and found out he has a new girl and baby. Should I ever tell him or leave it alone? The feeling won't ever go away.

I had a moscarriage 3 weeks ago me and my boyfriend called our baby jordan ... It is the scariest thing I have gone through and will ever go through ... I'm sorry for all your losses ... It's the worst sadness imaginable

i am eighteen and just miscarried at 14 weeks ! its the worst feeling right now, im sorry for your loss! just wondering how you managed to get past all of it..

My conception date was miscalculated. The doctor had first told me that i Was about 6 weeks along. Ha one day I woke up with the worst pain possible. i went to the er to find out i was 14 weeks pregnant and in labor that couldnt be stopped. This happened this past june I still think about my little boy and girl all the time

I lost my baby at 14 weeks as well. It was the hardest thing I've ever gone through. I am so sorry that your Dr. was a Jerk, if it helps, mine was too- I think they are like that because it's so common that they think it's routine, maybe it's easier for them to not think of it as being a baby yet- it is though. Syalha, I just wanted to say, this is not your fault- even if you had gone to the hospital right away, there would have been nothing they could have done. I went to the hospital at 14 weeks with very very light spotting- I was spotting because the baby had already died, it was a missed miscarriage.

I was in the washroom, wiped, saw a tiny bit of blood and went right to the hospital- I still lost my baby.



Take care all of you- no one deserves this pain. I'm so sorry that we all know this pain.

i was @ first n denial about my pregnancy, not because i didnt want it but becuz i knew i nor the father couldnt handle it at this point in time. i had taken 3 test n which all came back (-). i didnt tell any1 until about a week ago not even the father. i was in my first trimester only 6 weeks. i started bleeding very lite i told my best friend who said its not unusal 2 bleed if i was pregnant seein as the fact tht she has a child,but i knew it was something more serious than tht.i went about my day as usual then i strted bleeding heavily. i finally old my mom day of who then was also n denial nd chalked it up as my period since i hadnt had 1 since the month of march.we went 2 the hopsital where things got even worse i was dehydrated nd passed out twice.then i was told i was hving a miscarriage, it hurt me deeply n i cld only think wat if i didnt deny it and went 2 the doc maybe i wld still b pregnant.

im 18 and i had a miscarriage this year i was 6 months along and had to give birth to my baby girl it was the worse pain ive ever felt. her dad and i held onto her for hours and just cried. it was horrible to be holding her and never see her breath or smile. a month later her dad and i broke up and we dont talk to each other. i would never want any yound girl to go through this pain..

(I was 18 at the time) It has been just over a year since i had my miscarriage... i was 9 and a half weeks ... I pretty much kept it to my self .. I told one friend,but her mum was rushed into hospital and then her step dad died.. so i told her every thing was fine and helped her through eveything as best as i could... it still tares me apart I sit down and think about the hole thing.. I cant go a day with out thinking what if and how things might have been

.. The guy who's baby it was never knew i was pregnant and had a miscarriage ...i still dont know if i should tell him ... or if he has a right to know or something... i am still in touch with him and good friends ( just live too far away)



I just would love to get over this and move on but finding it so hard to ..

A miscarraige is so painful on the parents

hun i feel your pain and to all the mothers and fathers thats lost a tiny baby huggs to you

Miscarriage is never easier. I too had one. I feel for you and alot of what you went through, I did as well. The pain, the fear, and afterwards the wondering. It has been five years today, and not a memory has left me. I am here if you would like to relate, or chat. Non the less I feel for you.

I miscarried at 14 wks. It was nine years ago and I still think about it now and yes the Doctor was an insensitive s***

I can't get over the loss of my son and there have been no more pregnancies since. I can't help looking at boys who would be of a simillar age and wondering what my baby would have been like had he lived. My heart goes out to you as I know how you feel. x

It ASTOUNDS me how horrific Doctors can be, and i should know because i have 2 of them in my family. NOT only did you suffer this HORIFFIC experience, which i am so sad for you, but than you had to deal with a PATHETIC individual that just because they have the title DOCTOR in front of their names, makes them think they can treat people like SH*T. i had a miscarriage and years later was blessed with 2 AMAZING boys. I can't say that it has lessen the pain of my miscarriage, because i often think what would my baby do if .... BUT my kids which are truly blessings!! i not only LOVE but LIKE them ALL i can say is HUGSSSSSSSSSSS and i am truly sorry!!

I also had a jerk for a doctor, infact all the staff were very uncaring. I'm so sorry you had to go through that. I hope your first child heals your pain.
