snowflake1234 :  Someone just recommended the podcast IVFML to me.  We haven’t miscarried, but we’ve been trying for awhile and I’m getting worried about hitting the point of tests and treatments.  Honestly, it explained miscarriage so well, that I felt like I could understand more than I ever have previously.  The last episode probably hit it the best.  I highly recommend it!

This was wonderful, thank you for sharing.

MC can be such a dark place, filled with unwarrented shame; I think it’s so important the more people share their experiences.

DrunkInLove :  I completely agree. no one talks about it and when I miscarried in January I was completely shocked at how horrific it was, I was woefully unprepared for the physical and emotional pain so I always make sure I share my story as horrendous as it was. 

This article was brilliant, thanks for sharing 🙂

When I miscarried I was surprised how many people said it had happened to them. I never knew.

I shared that article on my Facebook yesterday. I absolutely could have written it myself. I miscarried my first pregnancy just before the second trimester, and was fortunate enough to get pregnant with my son 3 months later, the first month we started trying again. He is now almost 2 and I just found out last week that I’m pregnant again. It’s amazing how the fear comes right back. I was quite secretive about my loss for a while but not anymore. More people need to talk about it so those going through it have the support. Best wishes for a healthy remainder of your pregnancy!

This was a terrific article, thanks.  I’m currently 8w4d after my (only) two prior pregnancies both ended in miscarriage. Everything looked perfect at my scan yesterday, so maybe – maybe – I’ll start to believe in this pregnancy in a few months, if I stay pregnant that long. But right now I’m still waiting for the other shoe to drop. It’s a common experience, but a lonely one.

It was great that she wrote that and it rings so true to me. I miscarried in August 2015 at 11 weeks. When I did get pregnant again I think I held my breath the whole 9 months until she came out and was in my arms. I still think about the baby we lost. However if we’d had that one we wouldn’t have the baby we do now, which is just incomprehensible to me. My rainbow baby is now 5 months, but my miscarriage is something that will always stick with me.

thumperbear :   cameobride :  It’s so true, no one talks about it. But when we went through it, at 11 weeks, so very close to going fully public with the news, I was shocked how many people told me/us that they had been through the same thing. While it certainly made me feel less alone, it’s sad it takes a tragedy for people to share their own.

I have not been shy in talking about it (in most circumstances); the stigma that a woman is somehow damaged or at fault will only go away if people normalize the conversation.

Now, at nearly 7 weeks, I’m beside myself with worry at every cramp and twinge. I just want that baby in my arms–until then, I think I’ll just be holding my breath. How unfair that it steals the joy of future pregnancies, too.

I read this article a few days ago and every.single.word reasonated with me. I plan on writing something very similar when I do my FB annoucement.
