I’m glad I encountered this site. I forget exactly how I found it, I was just doing a blitz of googling about miscarriage and found sites that recommended other sites and here I am.

Five days ago I was diagnosed with my third miscarriage, the second miscarriage after a heartbeat was seen. I couldn’t believe that this has happened to me again. I don’t really want to talk about it with friends and family, but I do feel that need to get some of this distress out of my head. Again, so here I am. The bleeding hasn’t started yet, I’m just waiting. I know the drill. I am less heartbroken over the actual loss, than I am terror-stricken that this will never end and never result in a take-home baby.

It’s hard to stay encouraged, to keep up hope, even though I know there are alot of steps  I still can take to investigate this problem. So far, my ob/gyn had attempted blood sugar therapy in the form of metformin, exercise, and diet control. I made changes and lost weight- 18 pounds in four months. But I still lost another baby.

Hence the setting in of hopelessness.

  1. there are no words……….like the other person said you are not alone! Which I find both painfully awful and extremely comforting ~I am so so sorry for your loss. I understand not wanting to talk about it ~I went through that after my loss. GOOD for you for reaching out on the internet and finding a place to share your feelings…I kept mine bottled up for years ~but that doesn’t work, either!

    I wish I could give you a great big hug ~I so understand the depths of darkness and the painful feelings that come with such a loss…I wish you comfort and peace! I don’t know if anyone has mentioned this to you (it was never discussed with me) but after being pregnant and all the hormonal changes that ones body goes through during pregnancy and then the horrendous emotional hell that follows after the loss of a baby; this was not mentioned until after the birth of my 3rd daughter by an incredible High Risk doctor and wonderful human being ~Postpartum Depression / depression hit me hard after losing my baby (I only know this in retrospect). My second pregnancy resulted in the birth of my daughter she was born @23 wks gestation and #3 was born term ~I spent 13 wks bed-rest, 2 wks in the hospital and weekly progesterone shots.

    sending you hugs, hugs & more {{hugs}}!!!!
