Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

End the Silence on Pregancy Loss

This week my husband and I lost our 6th pregnancy. My husband took the time to write about our experience, and I want to share it here. We are sharing our story because we want others who are experiencing a loss, to know that they are not alone. No one ever talks about miscarriage, and talking about is a big part in healing. Here is the link to our story :  https://www.lifeofdad.com/lucky-number-7/

Please feel free to share this story.

  • I am dealing with my second, a few weeks out. Thought I was okay, then heard a song on my Pandora today and lost it. I had to escape to my car during work to keep my coworkers from asking what was wrong. Thank you for posting this. It's exactly how I've been feeling. I can't imagine your pain six times. Praying for you and your family.

  • Touching!!!
    May God heal us all. Amen
  • Thank you for sharing. I just experienced my first loss and had a D&C on Monday. I can't imagine the pain you two must be going through; you are so brave. This first loss of mine has put so many fears and doubts about trying again, but I know I can't let those thoughts rule my life.

  • Thank you for sharing your story. I recently had two miscarriages and instead of staying quiet like i did for the first one I decided to open up to some of my friends. It's a good feeling and you learn a lot 
  • Thanks for sharing your story. My husband and I have just gone through out 6th loss, 1 ectopic and 5 miscarriages. It seems to get harder with each loss. Much like you we have had testing and are scheduled for another visit with a specialist. I know how I feel as a woman losing a pregnancy but I truly thank you for the insight on what the DH maybe feeling with each loss. As you said he is busy keeping strong for me. Thank you again for sharing.
  • We just experienced our first loss so I cannot imagine 6... Such a great post that I am sharing with my DH. Sending love your way. 
  • Thanks mdfarmchick, and sorry for your loss. I too am sending love and prayer to you and your husband. I am hopeful that one day we  will all be able to share our great news of adding to our families an be able to look back on our experience and encourage others going through similar situations to not give up.
  • Thank you for sharing!  Many prayers up for the strength for all to continue and for the health of all the mommies and babies.

  • 4th loss ... sept 17th
  • I don't think I can do it anymore. I feel so empty 
  • 4th loss?  I don't think I could do it anymore either @knottiec5616039a09bea58

    I could go thru 1 more and then I'd call it quits.  I've only had 1 loss.

  • I'm so sorry. I can't imagine how devestating it must feel. We've had one loss and it feels like my heart is stomped on each day everytime I see children or pregnant women. There is hope...I hope you can conceive and have a healthy baby soon. 
  • @knottiec5616039a09bea58 I'm sorry. I've had 4 losses as well. It's devastating. We've gotten a ton of testing done. We have one more test we're waiting to do, and then we're going to try again. But like you said, each one has taken a piece out of me and I feel like I'm losing myself. So we've agreed to try once more... maybe twice more. If we're not successful, we'll be living Childless Not By Choice.
