I am so sorry for your loss. I had a miscarriage 2 years ago -- I understand the rollercoaster of emotions can be devestating at times. For me, I wanted a place to direct my pain. I decided to run a half marathon. Focusing on the training really helped and by the time I had run the race, I was able to start trying again. All of the positive endorphins helped to put me in a more positive place. I hope that you find peace. My prayers are with you.

Has your doctor suggested doing any bloodwork to see if you may need to be on aspirin? Sometimes women have clotting disorders and have to take it during pregnancy to prevent miscarriage. Just a thought? I'm sorry for your loss. I has a miscarriage at 14 weeks and it was hard to deal with.

I just want to say thank you to all of you who have shared your support and your thoughts. I am doing OK. It is one day at a time. Sometimes I am OK and feel fine and other times I feel the grief like a sucker punch to the gut. I find it's important to plan my meals and my exercise and really stick to my workouts even if I don't feel like doing it.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your baby. I know this is long, but I hope you will read it. I wanted to share with you my experience, and God's revealed plan in hope it will comfort you a little. About two and a half years ago my husband and I were expecting, and at eight weeks I miss carried, I was heart broken to say the least, but knowing that God had a plan for our family helped a bit. We were blessed very quickly after that with another pregnancy, and at 12 weeks I went in for a sonogram and I was so excited to see our little baby, but when the tech started the sonogram I could see the perfect little shape of our baby, but no heart beat. I was devastated. I cried everyday for weeks, I went to a Christian councilor who had gone through the same thing and it helped, but I didn't understand what God's plan was, and why we had to suffer through these heart brakes. I took sometime to get my head back in a place where I felt we could try again. After a few months of trying we found we were expecting again. I did not get my hopes up to high at first because I didn't want to be devastated again. At 13 weeks our baby looked perfect, the heartbeat was nice and strong. So we told our family and friends. At our 5 month sonogram we found out we were having a boy, but the doctor was concerned about the fluid build up on both of his kidneys. When I asked what were the concerns and risks of this they told me that three different outcomes could happen he could get better in utro as he develops, he could have to have surgery right after he was born, or he could die after he was born. They said we would have to keep a close eye on him because his blockage was a more severe case. So every two weeks they had me in for a sonogram to keep a close eye on him. I was beyond myself I was so scared of the worse out come. I could not loose another baby, I just couldn't go through it again. At church I went forward for a faith healing, and they laid hands on my belly for my son, I had everyone praying for him. One day I was standing in my bathroom getting ready for work, and I was praying and sobbing asking God to please heal my baby, I prayed and told God that I just could not do it again, I could not loose another baby. (A side note: at church I hear our pastor talk about how he hears God talk to him, but I had never in my life experienced it myself until that day). In the middle of my sobbing and pleading I was overcome with a complete peace and calm and then I heard the Lord say to me " Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding". I felt so calm, and for the first time in months like it would all be o.k. I truly believe with all my heart that God spoke to me, and every time I would start to worry I would just repeat to myself "Trust in the Lord with all your heart", and I would feel calm again. The sonogram after that showed that one of his kidneys were healed, so now the worse case would be surgery, not death. I was beyond overjoyed, surgery I could live with. So between 5 months and 9 months I had 10 sonograms all pointing to surgery, so I kept praying, and believing in the ultimate healer. After Brawnson was born they took him down to do a sonogram of his Kidney that was still bad, and to their surprise, and my delight he was prefect. Not one thing was wrong with him! We named him Brawnson because it means Strong Son or Son of Strength, but I think it was God who really named him, because people ask me all the time what his name is, and then they remark on how much they like it, and then I share my story with them on God's Amazing Grace and Healing. I tell you all this because I believe with all my heart that this is the reason I had to suffer through my miscarriages, so I could know and see, and share the Amazing work that God did in Brawnson's and my life. I know that God has an Amazing plan for you, just "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding" Proverbs 3:5-6. I will be here praying for you. Much love & God Bless

I am so sorry. It really is one of the most emotionally painful losses, I went through this several times and I imagine thinking it might be your last shot puts a whole new spin on it. So happy to hear of your five year old blessing, be kind to yourself and grieve your very real loss.
So incredibly sorry for your loss. I had two miscarriages myself, some years ago. I am now going to be 43 as well, so very little chance that I will ever have my own children. Especially last year I found out I have uterine fibroids, which will make it nearly impossible to carry a baby to full-term, my doctor said.
I am praying for you. Your babies are in Heaven looking down on you. They are with you always.
Take all the time you need to grieve, you will get back to sparking when the time is right.

I am so sorry to hear this. My BFF is going through the exact same thing, she is 42 and had her second miscarriage 2 weeks ago. My heart goes out to you and your family
I am so sorry for your loss, and hope that your family and friends have been there for you in this difficult time. I was very surprised to learn how many women I know who have suffered one or more miscarriages. All of them unexplained. It's such a personal, tragic occurance that is common, and yet, so misunderstood to many people. Take care of yourself.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It's never an easy thing. Many healthy women are having children later in life. You just never know what will happen. Anything is possible these days.
Have you ever considered adopting ? I know many parents would like to adopt babies, but there are many wonderful older children looking for parents too. You might adopt a child the same age as your son for a sibling. Steve Jobs was adopted. He turned out okay. Trying to make you laugh.
If you need support, that's why the Spark Community is here.

I need Spark support.. I was 7 weeks pregnant and on Sunday I started spotting and Monday through today, heavy bleeding. I went in for a blood test yesterday and they confirmed I had lost the baby (only 1.7 HCG left). Heartbroken. So Heartbroken. I'm 43 and this may have been our last chance. It was a natural conception, which was a miracle unto itself.. But the baby didn't survive. This is my second miscarriage. The last was at 10 weeks along and that was three years ago.
I have a wonderful 5 year old son, though, and I am so very grateful for him.
I want to get back into my sparking and lose some weight so I can get back on that track at least.
