Successful Birth After 3 Miscarriages

Hello, I have had 3 miscarriages in a row. One at 14 weeks, at 3 weeks, and at 6 weeks. I am pregnant again and have made it to 8 weeks. I have low progesterone and have been on prometrium 2 x's a day. I have a 2 yr. old healthy baby girl, that I had no problems with pregnancy. I need some support. I am at a breaking point if I miscarry again. I need some happy stories of anyone in the same situation. Please no negative stories. Thanks L.

What can I do next?

I had 7 miscarriages and now have a BEAUTIFUL ADOPTED boy. There are many kids who need homes! It's the most rewarding and wonderful miracles I have ever done. Being a "mom" has nothing to do with giving birth. An insect can do that!

I had 2 miscarriages(the second, I was taking progesterone). With my 3rd pregnancy I took progesterone until 12 weeks. I bled (not spotted) off and on and was told I was probably miscarrying several times. I had to give myself shots to keep my blood from clotting. I had the most amazing and wonderful delivery. Now I have an absolutely incredible miracle child! Hang in there; it is so heartbreaking, but the LORD is able to carry you through this! Proverbs 3:5-6

I miscarried before my DD was born in 06 and then this year when I got pregnant, at 6 weeks I started bleeding again. Pretty much sure it was another miscarriage, when I rushed in for the sono, my midwife found a heartbeat, yippee. After 3 weeks of bedrest everything was cleared up from having a sub-chorionic hemorrhage and we are now at 17 weeks, yippee. I know its not the same, but I have faith that this pregnancy will make it to term for you. Don't forget that stress and caffeine can lower your progesterone levels and thats the last thing you need right now so stay away. I use Bach's Rescue Remedy from the health food store to help with my stress, it is a combination of plant extracts with calming tendencies. I have used it during both pregnancies and have many people I know using it. If you want more info on it, just let me know. You will be in my prayers for a safe and healthy full-term delivery.

L., I myself have 3 children. My first will be 8 in a few weeks and I had no problem getting pregnant or with the pregnancy or delivery.However, I did have 3 misscarriages myself, at 14 weeks, 8weeks and 4-5 weeks before getting pregnant with my 2nd child. I too had low hormone levels and had to take meds 3 times a day for the first 13 weeks.I now have a beautiful 3 yr. old and a healthy gourgeous 1 year old.I know it can be horrible to sit and wait,but have faith and take it easy. Miracles do happen. Please keep me posted on how you are doing and I will be praying for you and your family.Hope you have a blessed day. K.

L.,

I was just curious about the reason of why you have had so many miscarriages. Have you had any diagnostic testing to find out what is going on? The reason I ask is because I have a septate uterus (which is operable) and septate uterus can be the cause of repeated miscarriages. You can find out if you have this by MRI, Hysterosalpinogram, 3D ultrasound (although this method is not as acurate) or the best way which is really an exploratory surgery (minor) Hysteroscopy/laparoscopy. You should ask your doctor about this.
I haven't had surgery because my uterus is not completely divided, and so I am able to carry pregnancies to term (I have had one loss and two beaurtiful children, one of which was born just three weeks ago).

Hope this helps.

Hi L., I just wanted to share my story with you. I have had 3 children, and one miscarriage. I had my first child in 2000. In 2004 we decided to try to have another child. I had a miscarriage at 10 weeks. I had to have a D+C done on 3/4/05. When I had the miscarriage I was not sure I wanted to try again...I was scared and hurt. Time passed, and we decided to try again. I became pregnant again soon after. My doctor put me on progesterone cream. It was a cream that you insert vaginally. She also gave me a shot in the office. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl 6/14/2006. Almost a year to the day after having her I found out I was pregnant again. We were not even trying!! I was still breastfeeding Victoria. I am so greatfull, and I feel trully blessed! God is full of love and surprises!
I just want to say I will pray for you and your baby, and I hope you do, too. He hears us, and He loves you! Also talk with your doctor about your fears, and if there is something chemically going on, do something about it. The medication my doctor prescribed was compounded at a special pharmacy, sorry I cannot remember the name, but I can try to find it if you would like...just shoot me an email and I will look it up. Good Luck to you!

Hi L.!
You have had some great replies and advice.
I have a healthy beautiful little boy who is 4 years old and had no problem with the pregnancy. My husband and i tried for 13 years to have children so he is quite a blessing not to mention a surprise! However since I have had 4 bad miscarriages..I was referred to a high risk specialist who did a blood test that showed I have a blood clotting disorder.
My advice would be to have your progesterone levels monitored thru blood test and ask to have a test for a blood clotting disorder also. That has become a fairly new finding and very common in many pregnant woman unfortunately.
I am currently 36 weeks pregnant getting ready to deliver our second little blessing, once I found out I had the blood clotting disorder diagnosis I have given myself an injection daily of Lovenox. So far all is good.

I am so sorry for your losses but there is hope!
I wish you best wishes and prayers of faith!

L.,

I am so sorry for your losses. Thank God for your lovely daughter, and please know that you have three babies in Heaven who love you and will be waiting for you to join them someday. I have lost two babies myself, and the thought of them happy and at peace makes me anxious to join them when the time comes (hopefully not until many, many, many years from now, though!).

I wanted to second two things I read in the earlier responses:

1) MEND is a fantastic group and you would be most welcome anytime you feel up to joining. It's nice to be around people who GET it, who share your pain, and who love and value your babies as you do (instead of feeling that they are just, well, blood and tissue). I did not personally make it to this year's Walk to Remember, but I heard from a fellow MEND mom that it was beautiful and moving. It's always nice to celebrate our lost babies, since the rest of the world is usually ready for us to "move on" and quit talking about them.

2) Please do get tested for blood clotting disorders. They aren't necessarily something you are born with, so you may well have developed problems even in the short time since you had your beautiful little girl. Antiphospholipid syndrome, including anticardiolipin antibodies (whatever that means--I just know the words, not what they actually mean!), and antithyroid syndrome are problems I had, and the daily injections of blood thinners, baby aspirin, and little-bitty thyroid pills helped me to have my amazing little girl. If the test results come back showing any of these issues, you still have time at 8 weeks to begin the shots, aspirin, etc. for the rest of your pregnancy. It's encouraging that you've made it this far, by the way--after the really early losses at 3 weeks and 6 weeks, your body is hanging onto this baby, and this baby is hanging on to you.

May God bless you and help you and this new baby to flourish during a happy and healthy pregnancy!

L.,
hang in there! If you are on progesterone suppositories, you are well on your way. You would be surprised at how many Dr's ignore this issue. I miscarried at 9 weeks with my first child. From the time I found out I was pregnant, I spotted and cramped daily. My OB just said it was normal and when I miscarried he said, "it happens", and that was that. I knew in my gut that something was wrong, and it was probably with me. I had a known Thyroid condition, but my OB never once suggested I see an endocrinologist. As things happen, I ended up getting pregnant again right away. I immediately made an appointment with a reproductive endocrinologist that I had researched on the internet. My next pregnancy was going the same as my first, and she immediately put me on progesterone. The pregnancy progressed and I had a few episodes of heavier bleeding. Each time she upped my dosage and each time the bleeding stopped. At 12 weeks the bleeding stopped completely and she weaned me from the meds. The entire time I was on progesterone, my OB said that there were no conclusive studies that prove it works, but that he felt it couldn't hurt to take it. I delivered a healthy 9lb 4oz baby boy who turned 7 last month. I followed the same regimen with my second child (also a boy) and again had a healthy delivery.

So, you're doing everything right. Try to stay positive and try not to stress. I know how hard that can be after so many heartbreaks.

(((Hugs))))

Congratulations on your pregancy and hang in there I haven't had a miscarriage but I lost a baby when he was 3 months old. I spent 2 1/2 months with him in the hospital day after day, night and night. I now have 2 wonderful healthy children. I had faith in God to get me through and I knew God would give me another child. It is hard I know and I still have a hard time but I know I will see my sweet baby boy again. My children are 6 years a part and it was hard when people kept asking me "are you going to have another baby", "Are you pregant yet". So have the faith. And I will be praying for you L.. God Bless I hope this is positive. I do not think of my story as negative. There are so many women that give up after miscarriage. You haven't. Take care of ourself

Hi L.. First let me say how sorry I am for the loss of your 3 precious babies. I have a almost four year old son and had no problems with that pregnancy and then had 3 miscarriages in a row. I am now 29 weeks pregnant...so please know that you can still have a healthy pregnancy. I stayed on extra progesterone through the first trimester also.

I am also a firm believer in prayer and claiming God's word. If you are interested, I can send to you scriptures that have helped me.

Also, I am part of a miscarriage/infertility support group. We meet every other Tuesday evening at 7:00...in fact we are meeting tonight. It is a great forum to meet with others who are going through or have been through what you are experiencing and to receive support. Please e-mail me or call if you are interested in this...my phone # is ###-###-####.

My sister-in-law had the same thing happen to her w/ her second pregnancy. She had success on the fourth try. There was one thing that the doctor thought might have contributed...she was working out during her three miscarriages...she didn't work out w/ the fourth during the first 4 months...proved to work for her. She delivered a healthy baby girl. Good luck.

First of all don't stress! My husband is one of three kids spaced 5 yrs apart, because of miscarriages. So you already know that you can have a child successfully so think positive! I know it's easier said than done. Distract yourself and try not to think about it. Good Luck!

Well, I didn't miscarry in the normal sense. I had an ectopic, or tubal pregnancy and had to have surgery due to internal bleeding.I was 6 weeks along. I was absolutely devastated especially considering that we were trying to conceive. It took us a VERY long time afterward to concieve again, but after 14 months, it finally happened. I spent my days biting my nails until the baby was born. I was obsessing over the fact that I wanted this baby to survive so badly and how devastated I would've been if it were to happen again. But, my pregancy went swimmingly and I now have baby #2 who will be celebrating her 1st b-day on the 24th of this month! She is our miracle and I can't imagine my life without her!
Try to relax and I know how very, very concerned you must feel! I am praying for you and your precious little bean! Best of luck and congratulations!

When I got pregnant with my son, it happened RIGHT away(I missed my very next period. When he was 3 1/2 we tried again and it took us a few months, only to lose the baby at 10wks. From that point on we didn't use any form of birth control and I had at least one other miscarriage very early in the pregnancy. When my son turned 8 we decided that was it, so my husband went for a vasectomy. A week and a half later I found out I was pregnant and at 20wks found out that it was twins.

I'm so sorry for your losses.

Dear L., I don't know how old you are but when I was expecting two of my four daughters I was given medicine for nausea. That sedication was taken off the market as it proved years later to cause problems in pregnancy for the daughters born to those mothers who took that drug. The unborn child is totally fine however the mothers had incontenent cervic therefore needed to be stitched. You might want to ask your Mother about this information. Then talk to you doctor.

Hello there,

I KNOW exactly how you feel! I did not experience so many in a row- but overall, HAVE experienced 3 miscarriages and 1 ectopic pregnancy which had to be terminated. Trust me-this WILL be positive. The ectopic was caught early and I went through chemo to stop cell division with the hope of saving my fallopian tube. It did not work and I ruptured anyway making surgery necessary and the removal of my fallopian tube on my left side.

Life shattering as that was and will always be to me-despite going through the two rounds of chemo, having only 1 fallopian tube connected to an ovary meaning I could only get pregnant every OTHER cycle and a long history of endometriosis complete with laparoscopic surgery for that I concieved a baby 5 months following the ectopic catastrophe. That baby is now 3 years old!

ALL odds were against me-all but God had plans even when I was quaking in my socks and scared to be in love with the baby within. I was sooo desperate to believe it'd be different and I had all these ideas about being calm and peacful to affect the tiny presence inside but truth is I was a nervous wreck and terrified to think I'd hang on to her. I was practically superstitious about telling anyone and jinxing the pregnancy but God got me through several 'scares' and there were no complications despite ultra sounds showing something a few times. In each case-it turned out to be nothing abnormal and everyone was just being overly careful with us.

My Ella was not only carried a full 9 months but another 2 weeks on top of that! She didn't want to come out. My OB took his vacation that last week and referred me to a partner that would deliver me while he was gone assuming I'd burst but I didn't. LOL.

Instead, when he returned from vacation I was induced and gave birth to a whopping 9 lb 15 oz baby girl with absolutely NO health problems whatsoever.

My Ella has been a cuddle bug and she's a charmer. Everyone can not help but adore her and that is not just the pride of motherhood speaking-she's just got a way about her.

I'll pray for you with the BELIEF that a perfect blessing will be the result. :)

I just wanted to say I am sorry for your losses. I had a m/c about a month ago at 10 weeks. That was my 4th pregnancy and I too had low progesterone. We are going to see a specialist on the 30th in hopes we won't have to go through it again. I went from being extra fertile (one pregnancy I was a surrogate, carried twins for an infertile couple). Went from that to infertile myself.
A dear friend of mine had several m/c, 2 still births and after all the heartache they finally figured out what was wrong. All she had to do was a small injection in the abdomen every day. After they adopted a baby boy she went on to have healthy twin girls and another healthy girl after that.

I had 5 before my beautiful son was born, and then came his baby sister, 5 years in between, but no miscarriages in those 5 years either. Please pray, if it is Gods will for this child to come to you, he/she will come, and oh how you will cherish him/her! God Bless, and best of luck with your current pregnancy.

First let me say how sad I am to hear about your miscarriages. Each one must have taken a "toll" on your soul. (Didn't mean to rhyme =)
Anyway I have a beautiful 1st grade girl that we got lucky with on our 2nd try and then when we started for #2 it has been 5 years of fertility tx. I'm not giving up though!!
Oh and just for the sake of saying..time is not on my side. I turned 41 over the summer...but I still want more children.
Ok..back to you, I know this may sound silly but had your doctor ever put you on the simple protocol of a baby asprin daily?? I am certainly not trying to minimize your losses, but multiple miscariages can often be a clot factor.
You should check out www.babycenter.com
it is a great source of real women information and knowledge.

Personally, I haven't had any problems w/mc, but my best friend did.

My bf had 4 mc and lost one at 6 months (pregnant) due to a problem unrelated to the mc's. Her and her dh were looking into adoption when she go pg again. That time she gave birth to a healthy boy. She had two more after that, the third being a surprise (she was 4 months pg before she knew she was pg). She didn't have any more mc's.

She went through hell with her mc's, but now says it was all worth it to have her 3 beautiful, healthy boys (young men now).

Good luck to you, I will keep you in my prayers.

I had at least 3 before our first child, who is now 24. I then had another 20 months later. Six years later, we were the proud parents of four. Miscarriages happen more than you think, but my best advice is to always be positive and happy. I believe happy babies come from happy moms. Good luck with this one and I'll keep you in my thoughts.

Dear L.,

I was in the same situation. I had 3 miscarriages in a row and it was unbearable. I didn't want to go thru this again, but we got pregnant again (this time without fertility drugs). I had a lot of doctor visits and worried my entire pregnancy about losing the baby. The pregnancy was actually very easy (aside from the worrying part). Our beautiful daughter was born without any complications and she will be 1 next month. Please don't give up.

Hi L.. I had a miscarriage in Aug. 2007 at 6 weeks. It turns out my progesterone was also low. That was my third miscarriage, also. Then I got pregnant this past April and had to have emergency surgery at 7 weeks on my left ovary. The chances of miscarriage were extremely high but I didn't have a choice as I had an ovarian torsion. However, my OB put me on Prometrium for the remainder of my first trimester and I am now 25 weeks and 2 days. So, think positive though I know it's tough sometimes. Just take it easy and try not to stress and think so much about it. I wish you the very best and be sure to let us know what happens. Blessings!!

I am so sorry to hear about your losses. I had a full term stillborn baby and ectopic pregnancy and just recently had a successful subsequent pregnancy. I totally understand your pain and anxiety. My son was born on August 22nd. I had 2 boys prior to my losses. I belong to a support group called MEND (Mommies Enduring Neonatal Death). They have a subsquent pregnancy support group that meets the 4th Thursday of the month. You can get the details from their website at www.mend.org. I pray that you will have peace throughout your pregnancy.

L.: I went through the same thing after having a healthy baby boy 8 years ago. My dr. told me my son was probably a blessing because we couldn't figure out how I had him w/o complication. I couldn't understand why all the miscarriages followed. Turns out I was blessed to have had HIM in the first place. I stopped getting excited about any pregnancy and stopped telling anyone..which is so hard to do...especially with a close girlfriend. I just delivered a healthy, beautiful baby girl 6 wks ago. The grandparents were taking the news as hard as we were on the others so we waited until I was into my 3rd month before saying anything. My daughter was well worth the wait. I always believed there was a reason God took those other babies so early. I have a princess now that I just love to pieces - - and I NEVER thought we'd have a girl. (Maybe those others were boys!?) ha. Keep your chin up. God has a plan.

I miscarried with my first pregnancy in the first trimester. It was horrible; however, I found out afterwards that it is very common. In fact, a lot of women miscarry without even knowing it. They may just have a heavier period one month and not even realize it. I was very nervous when I became pregnant the second time. In fact, we were trying not even to get excited about it because of what happened the first time. However, we made it through to the second trimester. We now have a healthy little girl. Then I became pregant again when my daughter was 9 months old. Again, nervous. We did not tell a lot of people until I was 14 weeks. Again, another healthy baby girl. You are about a month away of getting out of the "risk" period - not that long. Just hang in there. I know it is tough going through miscarriages. I can't imagine going through the volume you have and the uncertainty that you must feel until you reach that 14 week mark. Just know that there is hope again for another healthy pregnancy. I am sure this one will go perfectly fine! Just know you have done nothing wrong; it is just natures way of saying there is something wrong. You will have another healthy baby.

Focus on good positive things, and on enjoying spending time with your two year old and having fun with her. Take good care of yourself, and not get overtired or lift a lot etc. and everytime you start to think negative, make yourself think of good things, if you have to go put on happy music etc. It is going to be O>K>

Yes it is possible. The progesterone is a life saver, literally. I have lost 5. I am now 34 weeks with pregnancy number 8. I take progesterone supplements through my first trimester. Well with 4 of them I have anyway. By that time your placenta can take over progesterone production and you should be good to go. I understand the apprehension and I wish I had some cure for you. You tend to live on ice for a good long while, not wanting to be excited, not that it matters because you already are, trying to guard you heart because you don't know that you can survive if it breaks again. There is hope though and all of the apprehension is long gone forgotten as soon as you hold the baby in your arms.

Remain mentally strong, physically healthy (eat well & take your vitamins), get adequate rest, and pray every day. I experienced a miscarriage in between the births of my 2 boys. I was concerned, like you, about losing another baby. But you CAN have a successful pregnancy after a miscarriage! Stay positive and prayerful. DON'T STRESS. My cousin had 5 misscarriages in between her 3 boys. Even after a tubal pregancany that ruptured her ovary on one side, she still was able to carry and deliver a healthy, beautiful boy. Our prayers are with you.

L.,

I am so sorry about the babies you lost. My husband and I waited years to have children. When my little boy was 18 months and we were ready for another, I miscarried between 5-6 weeks. I got pg almost immediately after that and had a horrible experience with another miscarriage at 9 weeks. The doctors couldn't find anything wrong with me. We planned to wait at least 3 months before trying again, but after 2 months, I found out I was pg again. I hate to say, but I was a nervous wreck and couldn't get excited about the pregnancy. My husband was the same way. It was almost like I kept waiting for the blood to appear, and when it did at 8 1/2 weeks, I knew it was happening again. Fortunately, the spotting stopped after 2 days. The rest of my pregnancy was great, and I had a beautiful baby girl July 29. My little boy just turned 3, so I am very hopeful that everything will work out for you too. It's hard not to worry, but please have faith. I will be thinking about you and praying for you and this pregnancy.

L., I really understand your stress and anxiety right now. I also had 3 miscarriages in a row- my first 3 pregnancies. Finally on the 4th, we had our perfect daughter (now 10 years old). We just wanted one child and we were perfectly happy. Then surprise, seven years later, we had an uplanned pregnancy and everything went just fine ( our son who is almost 3).
With the last pregnancy I was pretty relaxed. It didn't have all the pressure that the other pregnancies had. Both of my full term pregnancies were uneventful- medically speaking.

I believe that I got the two kids that I was supposed to get. Both pregnancies had life changing events that happened around them. Things do happen in a particular way that leads us to our intended destiny. I know that sounds really syrupy, but I believe it.

Hey L.!

My prayers are with you and my faith in God leads me to believe everything is going to be okay.

I had a miscarriage at 18. I had my first child in 1992. I didn't get pregnant again until 2002. Then in 2003 I had an ectopic which had to be removed.

Sometimes we wonder why God does the things He does but it's all in His plan.

My youngest child loves babies and I think that's because she knows she was supposed to have a little brother or sister (the ectopic pregnancy). I would love to have another one but the husband is NOT going for it at all. LOL!

Everything will be okay please just have faith.

I also wanted to let you know that I have a skin care, health and wellness company.

We have a natural hormone balancing cream (progesterone cream) that is wonderful. People have had great results with it. So you may want to think about trying it after the baby is born.

I pray blessings over you, your family and the new baby!

Take care and God bless!

Hello, L.,
I have been pregnant 9 times and have given birth to only 4 children. My first child was my 4th pregnancy, and she was definitely worth the wait.
You need to get some counseling and do lots of things to just relax. I know it's hard to find time when you have a 2 year old, but maybe when she's napping you can take a relaxing bubble bath. It would be a good idea to take a day for yourself, or maybe an afternoon, once a week. Get a babysitter and do something you enjoy. Talk to your husband about your concerns and seek his support. Your stress level and worry can be dangerous and you need to take it easy. I had to stay off my feet for over a month, so I could get past the 3 month mark, but after that it was fairly smooth sailing.
Have you spoken to your doctor about your fears? Maybe he/she could suggest someone for you to talk to or suggest other things that might help.
Since you have a 2 year old, it would be a great idea to seek a play group or Mom's group that you can get involved in. That would be good for both of you.
Good luck and hang in there!

I have not been in that boat but YAY!!! I am so happy for you for making it to the 8 week mark! Hang in there Mama!!!

For what its worth - my best friend went through something similar. After her first son was born, she miscarried three times then got pregnant again. Her second son is now 14 and in school with my daughter!

Hi L.,
My husband and I tried for over 4 yrs to get pregnant. 3 yrs into it I got pregnant,or so I thought. I had low progesterone as well. When I went back for my second visit,I was stunned to find out I was not really pregnant. It was a blighted ovum. Which just means for some reason the egg stopped growing and the sac was empty. It affected me as any real mis-carriage. BUT,there is a happy ending. one year after that I did get pregnant again and have a happy healthy 3 yr old boy. It is all God's plan and I just have to say,Keep the Faith. I wish you all the best on your pregnancy and will say a little prayer for you. Good luck to you and your family.

Hey L., I have helped a lady who has miscarried 3 times and was desperately wanting to have a baby, I put her and her husband on a nutritional supplement and she was preganant and had a beautiful baby boy. I will be happy to connect you with this mom to share and encourage you. The products is safe, most women take it as their prenatal vitamins.

Let me know if you would like more information.

Blessings,

A.

L. - Thank you for sharing your story. I've been so encouraged by the responses you've received. I have an adorable 4-yr-old and we have been trying to make her a big sister for 2 years. I just had my second miscarriage last month at 13 weeks. I know that God is more than able to see us through this and provide us with another child, if it is His desire, but it is so hard to get through the emotions. Thank you again for allowing these other moms to share their experiences.

Please know that I'll be praying for you and your family. Blessings on all of you,
L.

My friend Becky had many ...like 4 or 5 before her current successful pregnancy and birth of her 2nd child Erin. She was in treatment for thinned lining...and then started healing touch therapy and holistic methods to her fertility issues. She had spiritual guides and a huge circle of friends for support.

Hi L.,

I had two miscarriages in a row last year, and there is nothing anyone can say to help you feel better. I miscarried at we think 10 weeks, but it was a missed abortion. I had no idea I miscarried until we could not find a heartbeat. Then I miscarried at 7 weeks. I did a lot of praying and had faith that I would have a healthy baby. And that is what happened! I had a healthy baby girl this year!! I was a wreck for the first 16 weeks. Since I did not know I miscarried the first time, I had convinced myself I miscarried again this last time on my first appointment. I was seeing a new doctor, since we had moved, and I'm sure she thought I was crazy, but she was wonderful! I did not want to get my hopes up, but that is really impossible. Now looking back, God had a plan, and now I can see that. Things happened in our life that would not have happened if I had carried those miscarriages. You will have another baby, just have faith, God will take care of you!

Hi L.! First of all, I want to say how very sorry I am
about the loss of your 3 babies. Rest assured,they are in
the arms of a loving Heavenly Father & in a beautiful place.
I am involved in a support group called The Hannah Group.
We are a loving & supportive group that encourages each other
in the areas of fertility & miscarriage. We meet every other
week on Tuesday nights at Richland Hills Church of Christ in Room 207, from 7 - 8 pm. We are open to anyone who is in need
of support/encouragement through open discussion, prayer, &
Scriptural help. Any hurting woman is welcome to come. We will
meet tomorrow night. Please contact me at ____@____.com or ###-###-#### if you would like to attend or if you have any questions. You will be in my
prayers! Love & Blessings to you & your new baby, C.

I am looking at my healthy 10 month old baby girl right now with a smile on both of our faces. I too had a deficiency of progesterone and was required to take shots once a day for 12 weeks. I miscarried twice before I had this child and actually she was a twin and I lost one between 7 and 8 weeks. I feel like God had a plan and was taking care of all of the babies I lost. It is definitely hard but I do feel like I am given strength every day from God, my husband and my wonderful daughter. I embrace the joy I have already been given and try to go along with any difficulties I might be given by relying on my faith. Keep up with the advice and medicine your doctors are providing and hand your worry over to God. He can handle it. Blessings, J.

i have a good friend who is currently 6 months pregnant with a little girl after suffering 4 miscarriages. it can happen! good luck. my heart goes out to you. will keep you and your baby in my prayers.
