Ive been ttc since september and got my first ever BFP on tuesday last week, I sadly started bleeding sunday and have miscarried.
I have been total devastated but now I just feel so angry!!!
Im angry that the doctors wouldnt see me on sunday, that they waited 3 hours to call me back on Monday, that they booked me in for a scan on Tuesday and then left me in the waiting room of the hospital for an hour after they did a pregnancy test before they told me it was negative EVEN though I could here them talking at reception about the results!!!
3 whole days just to be told to do a pregnancy test!!! They didnt even bother with the scan, if i had known thats all they would do I would of done it Sunday and started the process of getting over my loss.
Instead I had all my family trying to keep me positive with stories of ppl who bled through pregnancy and were fine.
Im just so angry!!!! Im angry with myself also for rushing to tell our families our 'good news'
having to tell them this news is so hard!!!
well thats my rant, Im Sophie by the way, did anyone else feel anger after a loss?? x
It's totally normal to be angry, it's a natural part of grieving. I would get really angry when I thought about friends and family that had baby after baby that were not good parents or didn't want their kids. And I'd get mad when I'd see people not appreciating the little ones that they had. And I was mad at my body for letting me and my husband down. Lots of anger, along with everything else...

i'm so sorry for your loss Sophie anger is a very normal reaction...I was really angry after my first loss too - i felt so naive, it never honestly even occurred to me that we'd walk into our first u/s and there be something wrong. And it's a really tough thing to discover that prior to viability, doctors will treat you very differently (as you experienced) during a bleeding/loss situation...they realize (even if you don't at that time) that there is nothing generally that can be done, and b/c they see these early losses all of the time sometimes they're not as sensitive as they could be - while it's routine for them, it's devastating for the individual woman experiencing it in that moment.
I'm glad you found us here in TTCAL - lots of great support to be had & some amazing ladies you can lean on. HUGS
Remembered Forever with Love

Sophie! I am so very sorry for your loss. Anger is a stage of the grieving process. I know that after my first loss that was one of the main things. I was devastated but I had this anger inside of me that I have never known before. I felt cheated and was angry at the world. It's normal to feel that way. Let yourself feel however your feeling because your grieving and you need to do that. I'm so sorry that the doctors/hospital treated you that way. My first OB was the same way and I left after my first loss and never looked back. We are here for you.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It makes the pain worse to get the run around like you did. I had the same struggles with my first OB's office. I was almost more hurt and angry about how I was treated than by the loss itself. I'm so sorry that you couldn't get clear answers and support when you needed them. It sure would have made a terrible experience a little less painful.
I am so sorry for your loss, but glad you made it over here, these ladies are great!
Anger is totally normal, especially after being treated the way you were. I am so thankful to have such a great doctor that is empathetic and as involved emotionally in my pregnancies and losses as I am. Just as Lara said, many doctors out there see this so often that it is routine for them, sadly. They just forget that the person going through it doesn't see it/go through it every day, that they have just begun their journey.
Hi and welcome to TTCAL! This is a great place to come for support. I am so sorry for your loss, and also so sorry for how you were treated at the doctor. That just makes it all so much harder. Good luck TTC...I hope you get your rainbow baby soon!
I'm glad you're feeling better. You'll find that you will go through a ton of emotions before things start to even out. The hurt will never totally leave, but it will get easier. We are all here for you through it all!
Sophie I am so sorry for your loss. Drs and hospitals can be so insensitive towards woman like us because they see miscarriages so often. My heart goes out to you and what you had to experience. Please know that we are all here for you and unfortunately you are going to go through a wave of more emotions through this process of grieving but please feel free to reach out to us with questions or ranting. I have experienced this heartache 3 times already but as you will see there are other women here who have had their rainbow babies after great loss. so there is HOPE! Hang in there dear.
