Dear all, it is with a heavy heart that I share the sad news that I lost my baby last night. I was 9 & 1/2 weeks pregnant. I started to bleed late yesterday afternoon. When I got to the hospital they gave me an u/s and confirmed that I was losing the baby and that there was nothing they could do. On a positive note, I found this hospital and the doctors, technicians and nurses were so compassionate and caring that all my fears and resentments simply melted away. They were also incredibly encouraging, telling me that they could see no reason why I should not fall pregnant again soon. I had a D & C this morning and am now resting at home. I will find out for certain at my appointment what went wrong. Could it be something to do with the fibroid that was discovered in my uterus or the fact that as a rhesus neg it may have been too long since my last anti-D injection 11 yrs ago (I don't know how long it is effective for)? Finally I would sincerely like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your comforting and encouraging words and for your prayers. Please know that I am in a good place with my faith, the Lord is still on the throne and I KNOW He is taking care of me and my little angel. I don't question as to why this had to happen, I simply have asked Him to show me what He wants me to learn from this and to guard my heart so that I will not be embittered or angry or depressed. I thank him for the refining fire for it is in these times that the dross is removed and we are made purer. God bless you all. I remembered to pray for you and will continually do so as I keep up with your news. I especially pray for all of you that are worried or scared that the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you and that He will comfort you and strengthen you.
oh gosh. I'm so sorry! Its so hurtful, losing a baby. It just wasn't time for you, me neither. I was devstated, but I know the dr I work with also helped to cheer me up. Its nice to know theres always someone there to help us and get us through these tough times. Don't worry. It was nothing you did or didn't do. The time will come when you have a beautiful baby to hold in your arms. :)
I am so sorry for your loss. Your faith is amazing. I know for a fact that He helps us through all of our trials and tribulations. He will guide you through this. I hope you conceive again soon and have a wonderful little one. Best wishes to you and God Bless.
I am very sorry for your loss. I just m/c on Sunday and go tomorrow to have a D&C and to have the big cyst I have removed. The other night I had to come to terms that God knew what He was doing and that He knew something we didn't. I look forward to getting my surgery over with tomorrow and to start trying again in a few months! God Bless!
thank you so much. you are so lovely and I do so appreciate what you have said. It is so very true. Bridie - please don't be discouraged. God has a plan and He loves to bless us with children - of this I'm sure. You just keep surrendering it all to Him and I know you will find yourself blessed with a beautiful bubby in no time. I am praying for you and I am really going to look forward to keeping up with your news for I know He will grant you your prayer. God bless you
WOW, I am sorry for your loss, and truly encouraged by your strength and ability to accept the test that God has decided to put you through. There's probably no words that anyone can say to ease your pain but most of us on this forum knows this feeling oh too well. The one thing we can all say is that it does get better. It sounds like you have the battle half way won by knowing that God is still in the blessing business and he's working it out for you.
It's a song by a Gospel artist named Marvin Sapp:
"Im better,much better"
"Never would've made it without you"
Just a little encouragement through your trying times. I will continue to pray that God gives you the understanding that you need to bring you peace.
thank you so very much. I can't believe how blessed I have been through this forum. Everyone is so loving. It's wonderful to be able to share my experiences with such wonderful, compassionate and caring people. You have inspired me to give myself to others who also need a sympathetic ear and an encouraging word and prayer. God bless you xx
I am so sorry you went threw that. Just know that a alot of people go on to have healthy pregnancies after a d & c. You outlook on the whole situation is remarkable after my miscarriage I blamed everyone and couldn't get my head around the fact that it was God's will. Honestly you are an inspiration to those that do go threw it.
you are a sweetie - thank you. Don't worry, I am DETERMINED to be as much of a blessing to people here as they have been to me (as well as to all my loved ones in my everyday life). I know the best way to overcome any feelings of depression that threaten to set in is to not dwell on my loss but to rejoice that I had my angel even for such a short while. And to keep my focus on the things of eternity. My baby is waiting for me and then we will be together for eternity. I'm happy to wait till then and in the meantime, to be as much of a help and an encouragment to others as I can. God bless you and make sure you let me know what happens with you
thank you for your sweet words. I really appreciate what you have said. I'm no saint, believe me. It's taken me the best part of 39 years to work it out to this point and I still have a looooong way to go. but I do thank you from the bottom of my heart. God bless you and take care
I am so so sorry. I had a mc last year and I know how hard it is to get through. Your faith is awesome!!! The only thing that kept my faith alive was being a Catholic School Teacher. I found it so hard to deal with all this and I did not know why God was punishing me. Finally I got over all that and I am at a much better place. It sounds like you are already in your "much better place" I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
