Hi everyone, Im new to the thread. I have a 3 year old daughter and in Feb 2011 I had a miscarriage at 5 weeks. We again conceived this year and were expecting a baby in Feb 2012. I went to the doctor today for a routine checkup and ultrasound and was told that my baby had pa__sed away a few weeks ago and had to have an emergency D&C today at 14 weeks. Im at the point where I desperately want another child but I dont know if I can go through this again. I now have to explain to my 3 year old why her sibling wont come home with us. This is such a horrible experience. I'm worried I will never have my second child. I'm sorry for all the other losses out there and I just wanted to say I know how you feel and what you are going through.

No heartbeat. :( baby was the size of ten weeks. On 8/21 i took misoprostol it didnt work. Unfortunately i had to have a d&c on 8/26 now im on best rest... Ready to find some answers as to why i keep losing my babies. I know for sure that we are going to wait... At least a yr before we ttc again. We want to get tests done but we dont knkw how much its all going to cost :( ....i see u ladies were blessed w a baby after multiple mc and i hope im just as lucky as u guys. :)

Hi everyone, I too have suffered three miscarriages in a row in the last twelve months. It is so hard to stay positive and keep the courage to try again. I have been referred to the recurrent miscarriage clinic for testing. It does help to hear success stories of women having a healthy pregnancy and having children after recurrent loses. My family keep telling me not to stress when I get pregnant but it is so difficult as I anticipate it going wrong as I have never known any different. I have never got beyond six weeks! Anyone got any up to date advice to give?

To Jofenby- I am 24 yrs old and have experienced 2 miscarriages.. The easiest way to cope and to find the strength to keep trying is in the cause. I was lucky enough to find out the 2nd time what the cause of mine were. It is still discouraging that it happened and ive always wanted to be a mother.. But knowing how to prevent having a miscarriage again helps. Its just getting pregnant again that seems to be the problem.. I sm rh negative which means that I have a strand of antibodies in my blood that if the baby does not have, my body will attack it as foreign. As a result, I have to get RhoGam shots to prevent miscarriage. Now that I know that, I can be proactive in my next pregnancy. Continuing to try is extremely difficult, and can only be done by the continued support of my close friends and family. It took me a long time to recover emotionally from my last miscarriage, which occured at 12 wks. I work in a retail store and could not even walk by the infant dept without crying. It will be 2 yrs this month since that day, and I have now missed 2 periods, have some symptoms that are similar to both of my previous pregnancies, but have had negative test results. The hardest part at this point is not getting my hopes up. My husband is so supportive and tries to cheer me up, but the waiting game is unbearable. I leave it in Gods hands, knowing that the timing might not be right for us to have a child. The only advice that I can give is the advice im giving myself at this point. Keep your head up and know that when it is meant to happen, it will, and that maybe those challenges were to strengthen my relationships..
