Hi ladies. I'm new here. I was due in January, but am miscarrying the baby as we speak. I've known for a few days that I was going to miscarry. My numbers weren't doubling the way they should. I started spotting brown on Saturday morning and I tried to stay optimistic the whole weekend. Prayed to God that He save my baby and place a heartbeat there for me. On Tuesday I went to have my levels drawn and they were 2345. Only a 10 digit change. So I knew then that I was really going to miscarry. The brown had already started turning to red. I was at peace by then because I didn't want to have a D&C. This is my second miscarriage. I had my first in Feb. of 2007. That miscarriage went quickly. Everything happened so fast. This one seems to be prolonged. But I'm happy that its starting because I was really starting to get mad at my body because I felt like it was holding on to something not there. I was still feeling pregnant. So I fought with those feelings for a few days. This whole weekend has really made me strong and I know that we will conceive again. Not sure because DH said that he wants to wait until our youngest is 2 or 3. That's a LONG time from now, being that he JUST turned 1. I want to try now, but I know it wouldn't be smart because we are up for a big move in January. From Hawaii to maybe VA. So I really don't need to be pregnant during the move. I'm really grateful for my two boys. My oldest is 3 and my youngest is 1. I'm happy for them because if I didn't have them, this whole experience would be 10x harder.

So sorry for your loss. My kids are about the same age gap as yours and it was our third pregnancy that we lost. I do agree that having two makes it seem a little better. My daughter is 4 and kind of knew we were pregnant and told me its ok momma we have baby Alyazhia, who is my sisters newborn. My sister had a miscarriage and went on to have another so I knew there was hope and it came from my four year old, isn't life funny. I hope you have a speedy recovery.

Im so sorry about this pending loss you are going through. I hope your body cooperates and heals quickly for you. Having other children does make things a bit easier some days, and other days it makes me see what I have lost. I hope your future will bring you a beautiful little baby soon, when you ttc again.
momma of 8 beautiful children now. Most recent is Jerry Jr. born 11/19/12 at 37wk, 7lbs 6oz and 19.5inches and Baby Reymundo born 10/7/13 at 35w6d, 6lbs 7oz, 19.5 inches. Momma of 5 angels. New siggy to come!

I am so sorry for your loss. My boys are older and they were really supportive with this last loss. They don't fully understand even at their ages but they are here for me and let me cry. I got so depressed that they had to cook dinner for about a month. It is really hard.

I'm glad you found the board. I understand what you mean about having your sons because I have two young sons (aged 3 & 2) and while they did not know I was pregnant (m/c 2 months ago at 9wks), they definitely helped me to get through it.


Thanks to Meganpixel for my beautiful siggie!

I'm sorry. I really am. In a way, having living children makes it harder because you can't just lay in bed and mourn and wallow. But on the upside, you have a reason to get out of bed.

Anyway, it makes me sad to welcome new members. But I hope you feel welcome. I hope you can get some peace here.

If you would like your angel added to our memorial list, please just add your information to the memorial list, and I'll get you added.
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog
