I found out I was pregnant and around 6/7 weeks along, been having horrible cramping pains all day / night yesterday. Went to A&E did bloods, urine tests all sorts, HCG levels were falling and as I was bleeding they said it was a miscarriage. I’m so devastated, all I could think about was whether I was having a boy or a girl, how they’d play a part in my wedding, who they’d look like me or their dad, my question is, how do you get over this pain both physical and emotional? And how soon after one can you try again?
It just takes time. I suffered 2 miscarriages this year. One naturally and one d&c. The only thing that help me was talking and being open and not bottling it up. U can start try again after ur first period following all this. Around 6-8 week. Prayers are with you girl. Im so sorry! These things seem so awful, but each of mine turned out to be blessing in disguise. Each time we had extreme things happen shortly after that i wouldn’t have been in a good place to have a lil one again.
Time. I had one. Back in June at 6-7 weeks. I cried until my eyes were so swollen I couldn’t open them. I didn’t think i could ever go through it again but each day gets better. Not bc we tried but I got pregnant right away, 4 weeks later I was testing positive and now I’m just about 20 weeks along. Biggest hugs to you during this hard and sucky time.
Take the time to mourn, whatever that mean to you. Find support, whether it’s a friend or family member, someone who’s been through it or a professional.
I conceived my rainbow baby the month after my miscarriage ended. It’s been nearly 4 years and I still think about them daily, but it gets a bit easier.
I struggled really bad with my first MC. I was almost 2nd trimester and devastated. I read this book a nurse told me about at a loss support group. I’ll try to find it and post it here. It’s hard, and you won’t ever forget it, but I promise!!! ( and I have 2 kids and suffered 3MC) that the pain does get less. It becomes part of you. Don’t give up hope. It also helped me to know that 2/3 of pregnancies end in MC but most people don’t talk about it.
Sorry to hear Emily. It’s amazing how much love there is right from the beginning, isn’t it? I had a miscarriage and just couldn’t believe it. I had already seen baby and heartbeat and everything was great at my 1st appointment and ultrasound at 6wks. Then around 11 to 12 weeks I started spotting. Went in and ultrasound showed no heartbeat with baby measuring only 7 to 8 weeks. It was devastating. My Dr gave me the choice of method for removal and I choose naturally. I kept spotting for about 2 days and finally came to peace with the situation. Once I did and allowed my body to release things really got moving. I choose the natural method because you can start trying much sooner than with a d&c. I feel pregnant again after 2 cycles and my rainbow love will be 4 yrs old in December. Sending lots of healing your way.
Hi! Im so sorry for ur loss. I was also around 6/7 weeks pregnant and I had the same experience as you. He/she would have been our second baby and would have already been born. I still haven’t recovered from the pain and loss from the whole ordeal. We named him/her Avery. Physically, you will heal and your body will be ready to be pregnant again in a couple months or so. But emotionally, it took me half a year to be ready again. But time is ur friend. It will get better. But you will never forget them, at least not with me. What i’m trying to say is youre not alone with this and it will get better.
