My miscarriage experiences

I have to admit that I really hesitated before I decided to write so many personal moments on my blog regarding this miscarriage. I’ve always felt as though writing has almost been a way for me to make it through many tough moments in life. For me initially the decision was partly a way for me to cope through this loss but also to help update all those who I know truly care for me and my family. We’ve come to know so many people over the years and to be honest, it’s just so tough for us to stay in constant communication with everyone individually, especially after a loss like this. Though I admit I was slightly concerned to have so many personal moments publicly visible for the world to see, I have come to realize that this miscarriage and all the events that have followed it are nothing to hide and nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, I almost feel as though it’s more important that I am willing to somehow express all the things that have happened not just for me, or for those I care about – but also for all those that may someday go through similar experiences. Maybe somehow I can help others that may be hurting so badly through the same type of loss I’ve experienced. I’m the one who’s experienced years of difficulties conceiving. I’m the one who’s now had three miscarriages. And I’m now the one who’s had 4 D&C’s – 3 of which were a result of this 3rd miscarriage. So I suppose I hope that in turn I may help others who may some day go through similar struggles. I’ve already been told my story has helped others understand or relate to this type of loss if they or others have miscarried.

Because of all this I wanted to make sure all of the blog postings I have written this past month and those that will follow that relate to this miscarriage are accessible from one central location. I have created this page that you can now access these posts a little easier. And though I initially was hesitant to write so much publicly, I’ve now come to realize that this has helped me and will likely help many others. So I welcome you all to share that link if you feel it may help someone else struggling with a similar experience if you think it will help.

Kristina - Wow. You are amazing. There is no doubt that you are helping so many people by posting all of your stories. I just finally posted about a miscarriage I had at 12 weeks back in 2010 and my journey through my “unanswered prayer”, and it was hard to post and make it visible to the world wide web, but I too am hoping that someone will receive strength from it. I also posted a beautiful song that I’m sure you would love having gone through an experience like this.
It’s at http://mothersniche.com/unanswered-prayer/ if you are interested in listening to it (but not if you don’t want to cry!)

Thanks again for your posts.

Hillary - Wow, you had such a devastating loss, I am so sorry to hear. You are so strong to post your story publicly for all to read. I definitely know your story will help other grieving parents out there of angel babies.
