After TTC for 3 cycles, I was over the moon to find out I was pregnant on November 9th. Right from the beginning I knew this pregnancy wouldn't make it, but everyone told me to start thinking positive.

Around 11.30am on Tuesday the 15th November, I went to the toilet, and noticed I was spotting. I freaked out big time, rang my partner (now ex) and m/w - they both came over. My midwife told me that spotting in early pregnancy was common, and to just rest.

Wednesday I lay on the couch all day - the spotting was continuing, but wasn't getting any worse. I hoped that it was just some 'innocent' spotting. Some tests came back the m/w had done the day before, and it showed that I had bacterial vaginosis, so I had to go and get some antibiotics - my midwife said that could be the cause of the bleeding.

Thursday I lay on the couch all day, watching Family Guy DVD's. The spotting was continuing, and still wasn't getting worse - but it wasn't going away, all the same. I cried on and off a lot, and spoke to my midwife again, who tried to reassure me that everything *might* be okay still. I knew deep down I was losing my baby.

Friday was another day spent on the couch, though early afternoon I noticed the spotting was lightening up! I was over the moon - there was just a slight pink tinge whenever I wiped! I had some cramps, but put them down to 'normal' pregnancy cramps, and thought nothing of it - even started to relax. Until about 7pm that night - when I went to the toilet and had a lot more blood on wiping, and noticed some clots. I knew right then, that I was losing my baby - or very close to it.

Saturday I woke up with bad cramps, and noticed a lot more bleeding. It still wasn't as heavy as my period, but was bright red, and I was passing clots, so I knew things were bad. I rang my m/w and told her, and she said to just rest for the day, and to update her if anything happened. I didn't want to hang around and wait for it to happen, so I rang my sister and we arranged to go to the mall that afternoon. I was cramping the entire morning, and the bleeding wasn't letting up, but I tried to ignore it all.

At the mall I needed to go to the toilet, and when I did, I found a big clot, and I knew that it was my baby. I sat in the stall crying, and having no idea what to do. I kept staring at my baby - that really did look nothing more than a clot - but I could see the little embryo.... I felt like the most horrible person in the world, flushing it down the toilet.

I got to my parents later that afternoon and rang my midwife, and explained the clots to her, and she said it sounded like I had definately miscarried, but they would arrange a scan for me on the Monday morning, to confirm it, and to make sure all the 'products of conception' were gone from my uterus.

Sunday I spent the day with my aunty & cousins at a christmas parade. Hard as it was, I just didnt' want to be at home.

Monday morning rolled around, and my m/w rang and said I was booked in for 4pm. 4pm, my Mum went into the US room with me, while my Dad and m/w waited in the reception area. The US tech explained what they were looking for, to indicate I hadn't miscarried, and vice versa.. he told me with a sad voice, that my uterus was empty..... but that on the 'positive' side, there were no remaining POC, so a D&C wouldn't be necessary....

... that's my story. I was lucky enough to conceive again in January of this year, and am now waiting for the arrival of my little girl. It has been a bittersweet experience for me though, because not a day passes where I don't think of the little one, who I lost...

I lost my baby on memorial day of 2005. i woke up that morning feeling crampy and noticed that i didnt feel as sick as usual. I could even drink pop, which I couldnt even look at with the morning sickness. I went to my moms for a bar-b-cue and the cramps started getting more noticeable. I went to the bathroom and noticed some discharge. I could not even eat b/c the cramps were starting to hurt bad.



Later that day i went home and laid down to see if I napped will it go away. Nope i could not even sleep. The pains were way more intense and it felt like i was having contractions. I went to the bathroom and wiped, it was bright red blood on the tissue,although it was only a small amount. I knew i was about to miscarry even though it was my first. I told my sister and she told me to go to the hospital. I called my bf to take me to the ER. I went to the bathroom again b/c it felt as if I was in labor. i was just about 10 or 11weeks. This time it was alot of bright red blood. I started to cry.



45min later I was in the ER waiting room waiting to register. I finally got called to the back and i started to feel dizzy and lightheaded. when I got my room I told the nurse that I had to go to the bathroom and i was so disoriented b/c of the pain. The nurse said that I would have to go in the bedpan in case I pass anything. I wasnt having it b/cI felt like I needed to have a bowel movement. I argued with the nurse until she finally gave in.



I went to the bathroom in the ER and sat on the toilet. I usually would put tissue around the toilet but I was in too much pain to think about it. i felt the blood clots coming out and then I felt something bigger sliding out and heard a big plop. I knew that was my baby. the pain went away and I got off the toilet and started to cry when I saw a little tiny baby. it could fit in the palm of my hand. my baby had its arms and legs already.



i got a nurse and she came and saw. along with other nurses and Drs. I could do nothing but cry as they led me in the wheelchair to ultrasound. I was in the hospital for three days. I now have a healthy baby girl who was born june 5th 2006 at 6:11am weighing 7lbs 4oz and 19in long. I will never forget my little memorial day baby.

Congrats on your new little girl! I know how it is to be pregnant after miscarriage. We're going to TTC again and I'm very nervous..... and scared of having a m/c
