I’m so, so sorry for your loss. 

How far along were you when you MC’d? 6 weeks 5 days

Did you have any pregnancy symptoms? Bloating, backache and cramping from implantation, a little bit of fatigue

Did you suspect you were going to MC, were you overly worried about it? From the beginning, I felt like something was “off” and that the pregnancy wouldn’t end in a baby.

If you’ve gone on to successfully have a baby, was that pregnancy different from the start? I haven’t had a baby yet.

Was there a moment you just knew you were going to MC? I started spotting on a Thursday night into Friday, bled heavily Friday night, and miscarried on Saturday. I think I probably knew the whole time but didn’t accept it for a fact until Friday night.

I am so sorry that you had to go through this as well. I have found that some people find it ridiculous to be upset over a pregnancy that “didn’t last that long”, but a loss is a loss(and they have obviously never experienced this themselves). We still lost our babies and no matter how hard we try, that void will never be totally filled. I had an extremely tough time with it the first few days, and I still get upset when I think about it. However, I know we will all get our LO’s when we are meant to!

How far along were you when you MC’d? About 5 weeks

Did you have any pregnancy symptoms? Cramping and irritability/emotional

Did you suspect you were going to MC, were you overly worried about it? Yes. I had a gut feeling. It never felt right. DH insisted on telling his parents right away and I kept saying “It’s still early, we have a long way to go..I don’t want to get excited yet” ,etc.

If you’ve gone on to successfully have a baby, was that pregnancy different from the start? Haven’t had another yet. I had a CP the first of this month and just found out I am pregnant again. Needless to say, I am EXTREMELY cautious. So far though, it is a little different than last month. Slightly darker lines than I had last month on the pregnancy tests early on, and nausea already (which I find weird).

Was there a moment you just knew you were going to MC? I had the thought in the back of my mind ever since I had first found out I was pregnant. However, when I started spotting in the early afternoon, I just knew. I called the doctor and he told me to take it easy, but around 11pm I started bleeding heavily and I knew it was done.

How far along were you when you MC’d?-8 weeks and a few days

Did you have any pregnancy symptoms?- sore boobs, tired & bloat…Then I woke up with nothing!

Did you suspect you were going to MC, were you overly worried about it?- I never in a million years thought it would happen to me. Yes it crossed my mind, but didn’t think it would happen

If you’ve gone on to successfully have a baby, was that pregnancy different from the start?- I’m currently 7 weeks preggo again and scared to death

Was there a moment you just knew you were going to MC?- when I saw the pink spotting. I know that spotting could be normal, but I just knew what was happening.

How far along were you when you MC’d? 10 weeks 5 days

Did you have any pregnancy symptoms? bloat and sore boobs and nausea

Did you suspect you were going to MC, were you overly worried about it? Yes,we told our family a week before and I was unsure because I was feeling it was not going to happen.

If you’ve gone on to successfully have a baby, was that pregnancy different from the start? No baby for now

Was there a moment you just knew you were going to MC? I had spotting early on and my doctor told me I had nothing to worry. After 3 week of spotting, I knew someting was wrong when I felt cramping and saw bright red blood instead of brown spotting.

graygodess20:  BCPDmrs:  Congrats to both of you! I wish you guys a happy and healthy 9 months with your rainbows. 🙂

How far along were you when you MC’d: Well, technically since I was diagnosed with a blighted ovum, things went wrong pretty soon after implantation. But I found out at 7.5 weeks, and had a D&C at around 8 weeks.

Did you have any pregnancy symptoms: Sore (and big!) boobs, strong sense of smell, nausea….all of these were stronger in the first couple weeks though.

Did you suspect you were going to MC? Were you overly worried about it?: Right from the beginning of the pregnancy, I was terrified of this happening. And I continued to have a strong nagging feeling something was wrong, even though I didn’t have any spotting or anything and was getting back totally normal blood tests in terms of my HCG. Maybe it was intuition, or maybe I would have felt that way either way, who knows. I actually told my midwife that I felt like I made this happen because of how strongly I felt anxiety about an MC….that was obviously not the case (which I logically knew and which she assured me), but it was hard not to feel that way.

No baby yet, as I just had my D&C on May 7th….looking forward to getting AF and trying again.

Was there a moment you just knew you were going to MC?: Like I mentioned above, I had a nagging feeling that was getting stronger in the week or 2 leading up to my first US (when I found out). As soon as they couldn’t see it on the regular US though, I knew it wasn’t happening and basically became an inconsolable mess before they did the internal US.

Andthepupmakes3:  I’m so sorry you’re going through this. It is tough to open up about, but I’ve found it really helpful to vent here and to a couple selected people in my personal life. I’ve been pretty open about the MC to people in real life (though not going into details), and it has made me feel better to not feel like it’s something shameful I need to hide, or dismiss or anything like that. There is also a really helpful TTC after miscarriage thread on here that you should check out if you are looking for more support. Even if you’re not ready to actively TTC, it’s still a helpful place if you are looking ahead toward that.

Hugs to all you strong mamas. <3

How far along were you when you MC’d? I had a MMC at 10 weeks 1 day and an early chemical (faint positive at 9DPO that remained on subsequent tests but didn’t get darker).

Did you have any pregnancy symptoms? Mainly nausea and low blood sugar. I also had a lot of cravings/aversions.

Did you suspect you were going to MC, were you overly worried about it? It never felt right and I cried when we did a hospital tour. I remember saying to my DH ‘what’s the point of being here when I’m never going to get to delivary’.!

If you’ve gone on to successfully have a baby, was that pregnancy different from the start? Still not pregnant.

Was there a moment you just knew you were going to MC? At 7 weeks I lost symptoms and did a scan to make sure. All was fine then but lost symptoms again so did another scan at 10 weeks.

Andthepupmakes3:  I’m so sorry for your loss. It is a really tough thing to deal with and people who haven’t been through it don’t understand. Give yourself time to heal at your own pace.

Andthepupmakes3:  I had a blighted ovum that miscarried at 9.5 weeks. The only symptom I had was tiredness.

I definitely knew there was something wrong. Intuition counts for a lot!

I have a 4 week old son. My pregnancy with him was different – I had no symptoms at all. I didn’t even have the same tiredness. I did develop low blood sugar a few weeks on later in my first trimester.

My miscarriage had to be induced with a shot, which is common with blighted ovum. So there was not one specific moment.

I’m sorry for your loss – my miscarriage was the hardest thing I have ever gone through. Take comfort that more than likely you too will go on to have a successful pregnancy, even if it doesn’t happen right away. My rainbow baby took 8 months to conceive. For most people I don’t think it takes that long but try not to get discouraged 🙂
