Miscarriage Is Not A Blessing

"Something was probably wrong, it was a blessing".
Anyone ever say that to you?

That has to be one of the all time worst things to say to someone after a miscarriage and, yes, it was said to me. What about the lost pregnancy where I had genetic testing on the fetal tissue after a D & C? It was a boy and it was chromosomally normal. The only blessing would have been to have a baby. That statement seems like a nice easy way for others to just sweep this awful messy thing under the rug.

In all fairness, people don't know what to say to others when tragedy strikes. Even after all I've been through, I still struggle to know the right thing to say. I had a friend who I went to high school with whose son recently died in his sleep (he was only 8 years old and the autopsy was inconclusive - he had a diagnosis of autism, but nobody knows why he died). I found myself completely at a loss for
Miscarriage Memorial Necklace, "Until I see you again"

I've come to the conclusion that the best thing people can say is "I'm sorry" perhaps with a sincere offer to help if the person needs it. People who've never struggled with infertility or miscarriage just have no clue what it's like. Many younger people haven't even had to deal with losing a loved one before. This is one reason why I decided to keep much of my struggle with infertility and miscarriage private. Sometimes it's easier to go it alone rather than dealing with the well-meaning condolences that make you feel worse. It's a personal decision on how much information you decide to share with others, but if you do share, maybe it's a good idea to tell people right up front how much you do or do not want to talk about it.

Miscarriage - Avoid NSAIDS

When I was trying to conceive, I avoided taking NSAIDs unless my menstrual cycle had already started.
These drugs, at least for me, were very effective for menstrual cramps - but I always waited until I actually got my period before taking them. The scary thing is that many times the early pregnancy symptoms can mimic PMS (additionally, I had spotting with all my pregnancies - I thought my period was starting). So, just to be sure, wait until you have a full menstrual flow before using NSAIDS.I have frequently heard that you should not take many of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs during pregnancy. The article below explains some of the research done on NSAIDS:

By Ed Edelson
HealthDay Reporter

THURSDAY, Aug. 14 (HealthDayNews) -- Pregnant women who take aspirin or painkillers known as NSAIDs have a strikingly higher risk of miscarriage, a study finds.

The study of more than 1,000 pregnant women found the risk of miscarriage for those who took aspirin was 60 percent higher than for those who did not and was 80 percent higher for those taking any NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) than for those who did not.

 No such risk was found for those who used acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol and the like, say researchers from the Kaiser Foundation Research Institute in California, whose study is published in the Aug. 16 issue of the British Medical Journal.

NSAIDs, widely used to treat arthritis, work by reducing production of molecules called prostaglandins in many organs of the body. Aspirin has the same action. Acetaminophen also inhibits prostaglandin production, but only in the central nervous system.

Animal studies indicate that prostaglandins are needed for implantation in the wall of the uterus, say the researchers, led by Dr. De-Kun Li, a Kaiser Foundation research scientist. Suppressing prostaglandin production "can interrupt the natural process of implantation," Li says.

It seems like the media loves to focus on all of the "doom and gloom" associated with pregnancy over the age of 40?  Okay, I'll admit, older women probably need to try a little harder to get pregnant and to avoid complications once they are pregnant, but the difference between older women and younger women isn't all that great.  For instance, one of the biggest risk factors for older women is their weight rather than their age.  If an older woman can go into a pregnancy at a normal weight, this can

really help to decrease the incidence of some pregnancy complications.  Additionally, some birth defects are actually less common in older women....when was the last time you heard the media talk about that?  I have a page on my website devoted to the real rate of pregnancy complications and birth defects over 40.

What happens to HcG After a Miscarriage?

If you become pregnant, especially after infertility, you may "live and die" by your HcG numbers. Do you need more information about HcG levels in pregnancy and what the normal levels are? HcG stands for "human chorionic gonadotropin" - otherwise known as the pregnancy hormone. Women who have normal pregnancies may never deal with having HcG levels monitored (except to confirm a
Sacral Chakra Fertility/Pregnancy Bracelet Click here
pregnancy). However, if you've undergone fertility treatments, you will probably have this test done after every cycle. There are a number of things which can affect HcG levels especially on home pregnancy tests. This is why most doctor's offices will use a blood test which is more sensitive and more accurate.

Miscarriage Over 40, What Is It Like?

You may wonder if you are experiencing a miscarriage.
See also: for my series on miscarriage
 If I hadn't done a pregnancy test, I probably wouldn't have known I was pregnant for a number of my miscarriages.
In almost all my miscarriages, the bleeding would start as spotting and get heavier as a day or two went by. I was surprised that I still felt pregnant even though I knew I had miscarried. The pregnancy hormone stays in your system a while even after you have miscarried.  Read more:

The majority of first pregnancies will end in miscarriage. It is rare, but some women will never know that they were even pregnant. They will believe that their period was a few days late, heavy and painful for that month. However, most women will know that they have miscarried. There are only a
Fertility Symbol Necklace with Healing Stones
few known reasons for why a miscarriage happens. The most common reason is due to the egg and sperm not meeting right. If the egg or the sperm has the wrong chromosomes, the egg cannot develop.

Usually miscarriages will happen before 12 weeks of pregnancy. Miscarriages can happen after 12 weeks, but the chances are lessened. After 20 weeks, it is considered giving birth. The two main signs that a miscarriage is happening are cramping and bleeding. Cramping and bleeding can also be normal during pregnancy. If you are having mild cramps without bleeding, you may be feeling your ligaments stretching. If you're bleeding lightly with little or no cramps, you may be experiencing implantation bleeding. Implantation bleeding is usually spotty, pinkish and will usually last a day.

Just with any pregnancy or birth, the signs for and events of a miscarriage will vary among women. A miscarriage can happen suddenly and all at once or it might happen over a few days. When a miscarriage begins, the first thing you might notice is lower back pain that is constant and/or sharp. Lower back pain is usually followed by mild or severe abdominal cramps. You may experience spotting for the first few days. The bleeding that occurs might be dark or bright red and will be very heavy. It may seem like a normal period, not to heavy and not too light or you might feel gushes of blood and may soak a pad within an hour. You may notice small or large clots and grayish tissue. This may last a few weeks. Your normal period will return four to eight weeks after a miscarriage.

Although some cramping and bleeding can be normal during pregnancy, you should always trust your intuition. If at anytime you experience these signs or feel that something may be wrong, don't hesitate to call your doctor. Depending on how your body handles a miscarriage, you may need a D&C. For some women, their bodies will clean itself out completely. For others, they will need a little help. If you need a D&C, your doctor will use a special instrument to open your cervix if it is closed to clean out the rest of the tissue.

Guardian Angel Necklace and Prayer
When I was experiencing recurrent miscarriage, I found that one of the most awful things I had to go through was waiting for the remains of my pregnancy to expel.  Not only was it devastating that my baby was no longer alive, but I continued to feel pregnant because my body still had the HcG hormone and my uterus was still full with fetal tissue and the surrounding uterine lining.  Some of my miscarriages expelled on their own within a few weeks, but there were a couple where I had to go through surgery which is called a D&C or sometimes called a D&E (dilatation and evacuation).  Although I had not done this research at the time, I subsequently looked into ways that you can encourage your body to expel the remains of a nonviable pregnancy.

Many women who are trying to conceive monitor their body temperature as an indication of ovulation.  You can use your basal body temperature to determine a miscarriage in the first trimester. If you do continue to chart your basal body temperature during your first trimester and it goes down to pre-ovulation temperature(below cover line) this could be an indication you are about experience a

miscarriage. If your temperature drops to below your cover line, (if you tracked your basal body temperature you know what your cover line is), for more than two mornings than you should give your doctor a call as he or she may decide to use progesterone supplements to attempt to void off a miscarriage.

Hormones and Miscarriage

There's quite a bit of controversy about whether or not progesterone can help women who experience recurrent miscarriage carry to term. Some articles say it can prevent miscarriage and other articles that claim there is no benefit at all. Here is an article about how some miscarriages may be caused by a sensitivity to hormones in which case progesterone injections would actually cause more harm than good. Read more:

"A new research carried on at the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer, Israel, might have shed some light on the origins of these unexplained miscarriages.

The scientists found that a immune hypersensitivity in women with recurrent miscarriage to female

sex hormones (that regulate pregnancy), estrogen and progesterone, in skin tests.

This is a warning signal, as some controversial current therapies against miscarriages include progesterone injections.
“Previous studies had shown a connection between miscarriage and unusual immune system responses, but none had looked at the role of these sex hormones,” the researchers say.

The team injected the hormones into the skin of 29 women who had suffered at least three unexplained miscarriages, and 10 women who had successfully gave birth to a healthy, normal baby and never experienced a miscarriage.

26 women in the first group showed immune hypersensitivity to one of the two hormones, and 17 of them are hypersensible to both, while the women that had not experienced miscarriage were totally immune.

“This is really novel,” says Walker.

“It’s a small sample size but if the results are that profound, it definitely warrants more research.”

Miscarriage and Stress Hormones

I have read some pretty convincing articles that link stress and miscarriage such as the one below. Women who are trying to concieve probably underestimate the importance of reducing their stress. Evaluate your life, if you are trying to conceive, try to create a more tranquil environment.Read more:

That's according to a study published online in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The study shows that miscarriages during the first three weeks of pregnancy were nearly three times as common among women with high cortisol levels, compared with women with normal cortisol levels.
Among the findings:

Miscarriages were 2.7 times more likely among women with increased cortisol levels.
Miscarriages happened after an average of about two weeks of pregnancy.
90% of women with high cortisol levels miscarried in the first three weeks of pregnancy.
33% of women with normal cortisol levels miscarried in the first three weeks of pregnancy"

Recurrent Miscarriage - Pregnancy Over 40 Still Possible

The odds are in your favor, even if you've suffered multiple miscarriages.
This study looked at women who conceived naturally and found that of those who had two or more miscarriages, 65% went on to have a baby. Read more

Researchers have discovered it can take between four months to two years to get pregnant naturally

after losing a baby. This is not much longer than the time it takes women without a history of miscarriage, and nearly two thirds (65 per cent) will have a live birth...___________
...The research on recurrent miscarriage by the Centre for Reproductive Medicine in The Netherlands is the first to investigate conception in women who lose more than one baby.

The findings were based on 251 women who had all had at least two miscarriages in the first 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Dr Stef Kaandorp, who led the study, said: "We hope our study will give hope to women with recurrent miscarriage and encourage them to keep trying for the baby they want so much."

Miscarriage During The Holidays

I had a number of miscarriage right around the holidays.  A couple of them were around Christmas, and one close to mother's day.  Wow, talk about rubbing salt in your wounds.  I remember putting on a stiff lip because there were a few times we didn't even tell people we were pregnant (for the very reason that I was afraid I would miscarry.
Holidays are hard enough when you're trying to conceive and throwing a miscarriage into the mix is
Click here for Miscarriage Jewelry
almost too much to bear.  The article I've posted below deals with losing a child and dealing with the following  miscarriage. 


• Try to get enough rest
Emotionally, physically, and psychologically it is draining. You need every bit of strength.

• What you choose to do the first year you don't have to do the next.

• Try something different. One possibility for the first year may be to visit relatives, friends, or even go away on a vacation. Planning, packing, etc., keeps your mind somewhat off the holiday and you share the time in a different and hopefully less painful setting.

• How do we answer, "Happy Holidays?" You may say, "I'll try" or "Best wishes to you." You thing of many answers that you don't say.
