Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Due date;(

well today was my official due date from my Oct Mmc. I've almost made it thru the day. Not without thinking about all that should be and should have been. I still question what I did wrong or could have done different to save my baby. I just wanted to write that while we don't feel like we will ever get thru the day it continues on even if we don't feel like it.  
On a side note how much folic acid were you taking during pregnancy? I was 36 and my ob had me taking 2000mcg due to age and I still wonder if it was too much.

Re: Due date;(

    So sorry for your loss. I hope you're doing ok. I have no clue about folic acid. I just take regular PNVs

  • Hi, I'm so sorry for your loss. I wish I could give you a hug. I'm sitting here wondering if I did something wrong, like if the seat warmers I used did it, or the heating pad on my back, or did my blood sugars cause it? (I'm type 1). 

    Regarding folic acid, I have heard people take up to 5000 mcg if they have a history of neural tube defects. I was taking 1200. Rest easy that your 2000 was probably just fine <3

    I know we dont believe it or feel better from it but usually its nothing we did. Most the time its a chromosomal issue. I just found out i had a partial molar pregnancy. I dont know if its better knowing or not. I still think stress caused my 2nd mc. We just all have to try to think positive, yeah i know,  its easier said than done. Im sorry, i know today wasnt easy. Thoughts and prayers your way.

    Thank you all, this whole journey is just unlike I've ever been thru. I lost my only sister 11 years ago to cancer at the age of 30 and thought it couldn't get worse than that. But it can:( I'm very sorry for all your losses and we can get thru tomorrow if we stick together. Bless you all!
