On ApriI 22 I spent over 9 hours in the hospital only to be told I was in the process of having a miscarriage. The following last night I had one of the hardest nights of my life as I went through the miscarriage and lost my baby at 8 weeks. I didn't share the news of my pregnancy with many because I was waiting until my next docs appointment, this was my second time having a miscarriage and the first time I just kept it hush hush, didn't tell any of my friends just dealt with it on my own and it was HARD. So the second time I decided to talk about it because I know I am not the only one who has gone through this and sometimes it's just better if you talk to others.
You may find comfort from talking to others who've been through a similar experience.
If you're reading this and have had a miscarriage yourself know your not alone.
If you to recently had a miscarriage Remember it's nothing you did, Babies do just sometimes die. Over half of all miscarriages are caused by chromosomal factors that are completely out of our hands. Not preventable. Nothing we can do. The majority of the others are also unrelated to anything we personally did, but some infection that got us, a poorly formed placenta or umbilical cord, a hormone problem, or health condition we didn’t know about. So remember it's not your fault.
I remember after my first one I kept asking myself what I did wrong and the second pregnancy I made sure I did everything right and I felt amazing but it still happened, sometimes it's just not meant to be.. I just need to stay STRONG and try again later..but it's one of the hardest things you can go thou.
So I just want to let you all know I am taking some time off but I'll be back again on Tuesday, but if you too have had a miscarriage and want support from others like you, please contact me..
I was so excited for this baby and I thought this time I was going to get to keep it but I was wrong, so rest in peace my little angel no matter how far along I was I still felt so much love for you! XX
