Miscarriage and The Endometriosis Connection

Many women have endometriosis and don't even know it.
It can be quite painful, but it can also be fairly asymptomatic.   I had stage II endometriosis and didn't even suspect it.  I had it removed with a simple laparoscopy.  This article talks about the chain reaction which can occur with a set of hormones called prostaglandins which can set off a miscarriage.

Chance Of Miscarriage Reduced After Heartbeat

I have often heard about pregnancy milestones.
 One is hearing the heartbeat, the another is getting past the first trimester. Here is an article that gives some statistics about miscarriage after seeing a heartbeat - older women do face a higher risk, but its still small. Read more:

It's hard to say any exact numbers from the available research, but here are some statistics that certain studies have come up with.

For women with no vaginal bleeding, most estimates suggest that the odds or having a miscarriage after seeing a heartbeat are about 4%.


 For women with vaginal bleeding but also a detected heartbeat on ultrasound, risk of miscarriage is about 13% according to one study.

One study found that about 17% of women with a history of recurrent miscarriages will miscarry after seeing a heartbeat on the ultrasound.

Mothers over 35 also face significant miscarriage risk after ultrasound detects a heartbeat, even though the risk does drop after detecting the heartbeat. A 1996 study found that women over 36 have a 16% risk of miscarriage at this point, and women over 40 have a 20% risk.

Small Gestational Sac and Miscarriage

Gestational Sac And Projected Due Date

There are a number of possible indicators that a pregnancy may not be progressing as it should.
My site:
This article talks about having a small gestational sac - which could be a miscalculation in dates.

Unfortunately, it could also mean that the pregnancy is not progressing as expected.

From the article:

If the explanation for a small gestational sac is that a pregnancy is earlier than expected, a followup ultrasound should show a gestational sac with appropriate growth. The doctor may then revise the estimated due date based on the ultrasound results.

In other cases, a small gestational sac can be a cause for concern, and it may sometimes (but not always) be a warning sign for pregnancy loss when followup ultrasounds continue to show a small sac size in comparison to other ultrasound measurements. In these cases, the doctor will probably recommend continued monitoring until there is enough information to determine whether or not the pregnancy is viable.

Here is another resource on the growth of the gestational sac:

More On The H1N1 Vaccine And Miscarriage

I've written before about whether or not the H1N1 vaccine is safe in pregnancy. Here is a real look at the number of miscarriages related to the vaccine:

Possibly over Three Thousand Miscarriages: CDC Still Lying about H1N1 Vaccine Safety

From the article:

NCOW used data from their own survey of pregnant women aged 17-45 years and the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), including updates through July 11, to estimate the true number of miscarriages and stillbirths following an H1N1 flu vaccination in the U.S. NCOW estimated the number of miscarriages and stillbirths due to the H1N1 vaccine during the 2009/10-flu season to be 1,588, but they also noted that the figure was an average and that the number of miscarriages and stillbirths could have been as high as 3,587...

The NCOW report states: "It must be argued that the CDC was grossly negligent to fail to inform their vaccine providers of the incoming VAERS data, while providers blindly followed the CDC "standard of care" guidelines to vaccinate every pregnant woman in 2009/10. Furthermore, in the face of these findings and the purposeful withholding of these findings by CDC's Dr. Marie McCormick and her vaccine risk assessment group, for the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) to recommend another iteration of the same vaccine to pregnant women in 2010/11 may be argued as more than gross negligence -but rather- an act of willful misconduct."

Even After Miscarriage, You Are A Mother

Am I a Mother - Tips for Handling Mother's Day After Miscarriage

By Lisa Church

Are you spending this Mother's Day wondering if you are, in fact, a mother? 900,000-1 million women in the U.S. alone face this question every year after suffering pregnancy loss. "For women who experience a miscarriage during their first pregnancy, the question of motherhood is an even greater one," says Lisa Church of HopeXchange, a company dedicated to the support of women and their families facing pregnancy loss.

Mother's Day is the most difficult holiday a woman must face after pregnancy loss. A time that was supposed to be a celebration of a new life and a new motherhood becomes a time of sadness and grief. Church's book, Hope is Like the Sun: Finding Hope and Healing After Miscarriage, Stillbirth, or Infant Death, encourages women to use the holiday to remember their babies, rather than making it a dreaded event to endure each year. "Nothing will lesson the pain of Mother's Day, but with some planning you can make sure the day has meaning for you," says Church. Here are some tips from the book that can help:

- You Are a Mother.

The best gift you can give yourself on Mother's Day is the acknowledgement that you are a mother. You may not have a baby to hold in your arms, but you do have one in your heart.

- Let Your Family Know What You Need.

If you feel uncomfortable being recognized as a mother at a banquet or other function, substitute an activity you would feel good about. If you would rather not receive or wear a flower, then wear an item that helps you to connect with your baby, such as a piece of jewelry that includes the baby's birthstone.

- Remember Your Baby.

Mother's Day can be a great time for a husband and wife to talk about their baby and what the baby meant to them. Take a walk, have a quiet dinner, or just set aside some time to remember your baby together.

- Decide Ahead of Time.

The way you chose to spend Mother's Day should be your decision- and one you make ahead of time. Setting time aside to remember and talk about your baby will make you "feel" more like a mom on the very day designed to do that. Church also reminds women that their spouses may experience similar feelings on Father's Day, "so be sure to ask how he would like to spend the day."

Hope is Like the Sun: Finding Hope and Healing After Miscarriage, Stillbirth, or Infant Death is available online at, and Barnes& or by calling HopeXchange Publishing at 757-826-2162.
