Miscarriage and Spotting or Bleeding

I wish I would have had this information when I was pregnant.  I experienced spotting with all my pregnancies.  Yes, some miscarried, but even my successful pregnancy had spotting.  This article from NIH, although technical in nature, may be comforting if you have light spotting in the beginning of pregnancy.  They concluded that heaving bleeding early in pregnancy raises the odds of miscarriage, but light spotting - especially if only 1-2 days does not.

METHODS: Women enrolled in a community-based pregnancy cohort study before or during early pregnancy. Detailed first-trimester bleeding data were collected by telephone interview. Bleeding episodes proximal to miscarriage (within 4 days) were excluded. We used discrete-time hazard models to evaluate the association between bleeding and miscarriage. Models were adjusted for maternal age, prior miscarriage, and smoking. Exploratory regression tree analysis was used to evaluate the relative importance of other bleeding characteristics (duration, associated pain, color, timing).
See also: HcG Levels And Miscarriage (

RESULTS: Of the 4,510 participants, 1,204 (27%) reported some first-trimester vaginal bleeding or spotting, and 517 miscarriages were observed. Eight percent of those with bleeding reported heavy bleeding episodes. When we evaluated any bleeding, including episodes of only spotting, the unadjusted relative odds ratio (OR) of miscarriage for women with bleeding (n=1,204) was 1.1 (95% confidence interval [CI] 0.9-1.3). However, women who reported heavy bleeding (n=97) had nearly three times the risk of miscarriage compared with women without bleeding during the first trimester (OR 3.0, 95% CI 1.9-4.6). Adjustment for covariates had little effect on estimates. Further analyses suggested that women with heavy bleeding accompanied by pain were the group accounting for most of the elevated risk.

CONCLUSION: Heavy bleeding in the first trimester, particularly when accompanied by pain, is associated with higher risk of miscarriage. Spotting and light episodes are not, especially if lasting only 1-2 days.

Uterine Lining, Pregnancy Over 40, and Miscarriage

I recall when going through fertility treatments, They frequently measured my endometrial thickness.

Your endometrium may be a measure of pregnancy success

 According to this article, patients with a lower endometrial volume had a significantly higher miscarriage rate.   Interestingly, one of the nurses at my previous fertility clinic had told me that baby aspirin can help build up the endometrial lining.

This article talks about the relationship between endometrial thickness and pregnancy success.   Read
Saint Rita For Impossible Causes, Fertility, Miscarriage, Pregnancy


Abstract Purpose: To evaluate the role of 3-D US measurement of the endometrium during early IVF-pregnancy and before the appearance of gestational sac in the prediction of pregnancies outcome.
Methods: 60 pregnant women following IVF treatment were included in the study. The women underwent transvaginal 3D US measurements of endometrial volume and thickness on day 15–17 post ET. Patients were followed and classified according to pregnancy outcome into 2 further groups. The group with early pregnancy loss and the group with ongoing pregnancy.
Results: While no differences were observed between those who miscarried and those who did not in gestational age, endometrial thickness or volume, spontaneous early pregnancy loss was significantly higher in patients with endometrial volume 2 mL.
Conclusions: 3-D US measurement of endometrial volume of less than 2 mL during early IVF pregnancy and prior to the appearance of gestational sac is a powerful predictor of pregnancy loss.

Miscarriage and Red Raspberry Leaf

I've heard about Red Raspberry Leaf for fertility, but according to this article, it can help prevent miscarriage too. Of course you should check with your doctor before taking any herbs in pregnancy.  I am not endorsing the use of herbs in pregnancy, but I am just providing this information for anyone interested.

From the article:

Raspberry leaf Rubus idaeus L. [Rosaceae]
Fertility and Pregnancy Necklaces click here
As a pregnancy tonic, raspberry leaf is widely known, as it has a long, well-documented history of use by pregnant women in China, Europe, and North America (Lieberman, 1995). Steeped in boiling water, the fresh or dried leaves make a nutritionally rich, flavourful tea that is said to nourish and tone the gravid uterus. In addition, "for centuries, women prone to miscarriage have been urged to drink raspberry leaf tea throughout their pregnancy to help them carry the baby to term"

 This recommendation may reflect the role of nutrition in preventing complications such as miscarriage, postpartum hemorrhage, and premature or postdate labour  . The herb contains vitamins A, B complex, C, and E ( as well as calcium, iron, phosphorus, and potassium   Magnesium and manganese are also present in high levels   as are selenium, tin, and aluminum

Miscarriage After Infertility

I guess this didn't come as a suprise to me - if it takes a long time to get pregnant, a miscarriage may be more likely.
I'm guess that some of the factors that lead to infertility also lead to miscarriage. I will say, however, that even though it took us a while to conceive my daughter, I had a normal pregnancy and normal delivery.  Read more:

From the article:

The length of time it takes for a couple to achieve a pregnancy may have a direct impact on the outcome of the pregnancy, such as miscarriage, stillbirth, or multiple pregnancy. That's the finding of

a study from Sweden1 based on a review of earlier research.

But in an e-mail interview, study researcher Anna Axmon, PhD, stressed that this study "was an epidemiological one. This means that the results presented are only applicable to groups of women, i.e., as a group, women with extrauterine pregnancies have longer TTPs [time to pregnancy] than does the group of women who give birth to singleton live [infants]."

Thus, no conclusions can be drawn from this study about individual women, she pointed out. For instance, when analyzing individual cases in the study, there were women who experienced a miscarriage after becoming pregnant relatively quickly and there were women were took much longer to become pregnant and had a healthy baby, Axmon explained.

Still, Axmon and Lars Hagmar, MD, in the division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine and Psychiatric Epidemiology at University Hospital in Lund, Sweden, wanted to explore the association between the length of time it took women, as a group, to become pregnant and certain pregnancy outcomes that had not been assessed in earlier research.

"Previous studies have found that pregnancies ending in miscarriage took longer to achieve than those ending in live birth," they wrote. "The aim of the present study was to further explore a possible association between TTP and the risk of preterm delivery, as well as different pregnancy outcomes such as miscarriage, stillbirth, multiple birth, and extrauterine pregnancies."

Much has been written about the stress and infertility connection.  Many sources say that stress doesn't cause miscarriage.  However, it's all how we define "stress".  This term can mean a lot of different things, but what I do know is that the stress hormone, "cortisol" when elevated can cause
Amethyst Fertility Bracelet
hormonal changes in the body.  Stress has been associated with everything from heart disease, headaches, stomach ulcers, asthma, depression, diabetes, obesity among other health conditions.  I don't know why anyone would think that stress can't affect fertility, pregnancy and miscarriage.

Everyone responds to stressors differently, and everyone has episodes of acute stress where your fight or flight system is activated.  But when your are under a constant state of stress, you get used to it (as I did when I worked in a corporate pressure cooker job).  The stress response releases cortisol. Cortisol also curbs functions that would be nonessential or detrimental in a fight-or-flight situation. It alters immune system responses and suppresses the digestive system, and the reproductive system.

 Studies have associated elevated cortisol with miscarriage, pre-eclampsia, fetal growth retardation, premature birth, and other negative birth outcomes....

Where Do Miscarried Babies Go?

I've often wondered what happens to those miscarried souls.  It's stories like these that make me think
that they are still floating around up there just waiting to meet the rest of their family.
See for more articles on miscarriage and fertility 
Many religions embrace the afterlife concept and I've always believed that the physical world is only one of our dimensions. This is a story about a boy who died or came close to death and tells of meeting his miscarried sibling.

From the site:
picture:  Colton Burpo 
Colton claims that while on the operating table he went to heaven and that he met his great-grandfather Pop. Colton says his grandfather didn't look like the man in the photo in his house, but instead looked like the man in the picture sent months later by his Grandmother, a young man without glasses.

But perhaps the most shocking part of Colton's story, the baby he never knew about.
One day while Colton was playing he walked up to his mom, and out of the blue asked, "Mom, I have two sisters, you had a baby die in your tummy didn't you?"
Sonja was shocked and overwhelmed by what her little boy had just said. When she asked him who told him, he said, "she did Mommy, she said she died in your tummy."
Todd and Sonja had never told their son about the miscarriage Sonja had before Colton was born. After all, it was more than a four-year-old would ever need to know.
Colton went on to tell his mom that she was a girl and, "she looked familiar and she started giving me hugs and she was glad to have someone in her family up there."

Miscarriage, How Folic Acid and CoQ10 May Help Prevent Miscarriage and Lower Homocysteine

We all have heard the importance of folic acid to help prevent birth defects, but folic acid deficiency has also been associated with miscarriage. This article also talks about the importance of CoQ10.

From the site:
Sacral Chakra Necklace with Carnelian stones
The following therapies may help to prevent miscarriage:

Folic Acid:


Women who are deficient in folic acid have up to three times the risk of miscarriage compared with non-deficient women.

One of the causes of miscarriage is elevated levels of the toxic amino acid, homocysteine. Folic acid reduces homocysteine levels.


400 – 800 mcg per day.



Several human studies have found that women who experience a miscarriage have significantly lower serum selenium levels compared with pregnant women who do not miscarry.

A study conducted on sheep found that selenium supplementation helped to prevent miscarriages.

Selenium’s protective effect against miscarriage is believed to occur via its antioxidant properties (especially its role in the generation of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase).


200 – 400 mcg per day.

Coenzyme Q10:


Two clinical studies have demonstrated that women with low plasma coenzyme Q10 levels have an increased incidence of miscarriage.


50 - 100 mg per day.

Vitamin B6:


Elevated homocysteine levels increase the risk of miscarriage. Vitamin B6 supplementation helps to lower elevated homocysteine levels and may thereby reduce the risk of miscarriage.


50 – 250 mg per day.

I could really relate to this article about what goes through your head when you experience miscarriage, infertility, or miscarriage after infertility.  You see other people with their happy little lives and their happy little pregnancies.  You feel like the oddball...the one who can't get pregnant or the one who can't stay pregnant.  The rest of the world seems to go on their merry way while you're still stuck at the starting gait or pushed back further and further.   It's a lonely, angry and jealous place to be which, of course, only makes you feel worse about yourself.  This blogger put things into words which many of us have felt on our journey through infertility and miscarriage:
Miscarriage Necklace, Until I See You Again
The truth of the matter is ,  we don’t always know other people’s pain.
Appearances can be deceiving. After I began having miscarriages, I began sharing these experiences on my blog. And to my surprise, many of my friends with children began to approach me with their own stories of pregnancy loss. Because they had at least one successful pregnancy, I subconsciously assumed they had done so without any of the complications I’ve experienced. This is default thinking, of course.
Infertility and pregnancy loss  affects 6.7 million women (or approximately 11% of women 15–44) in the US alone...
So those of us who are going through it may not have a frame of reference in the form of a friend or relative who has also gone through a similar experience.
In all likelihood, we actually have several friends and relatives who have experienced infertility and/or pregnancy loss, we just don’t know it. Of course, this lack of dialogue just bolsters our tendency to think of women as, essentially, fertile or infertile.
In turn, this binary way of thinking can lead us to either wishing “we” have what “they” have, or glad things are not as awful for “us” as they are for “them.” This is spiritually depleting. It’s also inaccurate. Women are not divided into two mutually exclusive camps, those who easily have successful pregnancies and those who are doomed to a life of fertility curve balls.

 Miscarriage, Faith and Spirituality

Many people seek some time of spiritual explanation for their miscarriage. They ask God why and they sometimes feel lost and abandoned.

This article talks of a book which discusses "spirit babies" and some possible explanations of why one woman's miscarriage happened and the baby's "readiness" to come into the world. Read more:


From the article:
Saint Gerard For Pregnancy Protection and Fertility Necklace

In one story, a woman comes to him, having had a miscarriage the year before and afraid of having another one, yet anxious that this worrying might keep her from getting pregnant again. Makichen writes, "Looking into Delia's aura, I saw the familiar green oval of a spirit baby. Dangling from that oval, like a string on a balloon, were the remnants of the conception cord that attached the spirit to its new body .... When I connected with her telepathically, she sighed. "I'm supposed to be a woman this lifetime. I've never been one before. I'm not ready. I must be prepared.' ... I felt a strong sense of isolation and fear emanating from her." He explained to Delia that it might be a very long time before this spirit felt sufficiently prepared, if it were left to her. He gave Delia a practice to do that he calls "A Mother's Healing Touch" because it can calm and reassure a spirit baby and strengthen the mother-baby bond, supporting conception and full-term pregnancy. This client conceived after several months of doing the simple practice and continued to do it daily throughout her pregnancy.

Makichen writes that in the case of most of his clients who have experienced miscarriages, the baby itself is unprepared to face its new commitment to life. Other babies are patiently waiting for a particular woman or couple to be ready. One thing he makes perfectly clear: All spirit babies, are quite sensitive to the parents' emotions and to their environment. The environment of one set of parents' lives can be acceptable to one baby and discomforting or unacceptable to another, depending on its innate temperament and personality.

Kokopelli Fertility Bracelet with
healing stones, Rose Quartz, Moonstone
Although most women, including obese women, go on to have successful pregnancies, according to this study, obesity can double the risk of losing a pregnancy.  It's been known for quite some time that being overweight can impact your fertility, but it can also contribute to miscarriage.  Read more:

After adjusting for other factors such as age, duration of infertility, smoking, and miscarriage history, the researchers were able to show that being overweight or obese more than doubled the risk of miscarriage.

Dr Rittenberg said: "We found that women who had a BMI of over 25 had a one in three chance of miscarriage compared with women with a normal BMI whose chance was one in five."
Scientists are still trying to find out why being overweight can lead to miscarriage.
One theory is that overweight women have higher levels of insulin in their blood, which may alter the lining of the womb and prevent implantation of the embryo.
Being overweight is also associated with other pregnancy problems, including high blood pressure, pre-eclampsia, diabetes, premature delivery and bleeding.
Babies of obese mothers are more likely to be large, necessitating a Caesarean delivery which carries risks in itself.

Miscarriage and Septate Uterus

Some women have a septate uterus and don't even know it until they have a problem with their pregnancy.
The following explains the condition and what can be done about it:
From the article:

"In the female embryo, uterine development is usually complete by 22 weeks' gestation, with the two müllerian ducts fusing together to form a single uterus. In one of the final events of uterine formation, the wall where the ducts fused dissolves, forming a single endometrial cavity. It is the failure of this last process that produces a septate uterus with two endometrial canals, reflecting either a partial or complete failure of the duct walls to dissolve, depending on the extent of the septum. Although there is some evidence of a weak genetic factor at work, researchers still do not know the exact cause of the failure of a septum to resorb.\

While a septum is not thought to decrease fertility, it does seem to affect the course of a pregnancy, either through miscarriage or pregnancy complications. Early miscarriage is common within the septate uterus, because the blood-starved median septum is covered by a poorer grade of endometrium than that of the blood-rich sidewalls. An embryo implanting in the septum frequently fails to thrive because of lack of nourishment, and an early miscarriage is the result. Late miscarriage is also common, and its likelihood increases along with the extent of the septum. Some studies suggest that in a completely septate uterus, the prognosis of a live birth is as low as 10%. In a late miscarriage, the pregnancy outgrows available space and the cervix may give way, typically midway in the pregnancy, before the fetus is mature enough to survive. Other complications include premature labor, premature birth, intrauterine growth retardation, and fetal malpresentation at birth. One caveat to keep in mind is that women diagnosed with uterine septa tend to be the ones with the most problems conceiving or carrying to term; cases of septa that do not affect reproduction are probably under-reported"
