My story

I was so excited to find out I was pregnant after two real months of trying. I was shocked! Family members, it took them months and years so I was bracing myself. Then after I found out I was pregnant found I didn't have many pregnancy symptoms. Then after knowing for three weeks I was pregnant I started spotting off and on. It just didn't feel right. I went to the Drs once a week for four weeks, yesterday was my last day to which we confirmed a baby never developed and my body wasn't miscarrying naturally. It has been bitter sweet. Initially we only told some family but over the weeks it slowly got out I was pregnant. Initially it was hard to tell everyone I was miscarrying and there was no baby. But I found through all of this who are the people that truly love me n my husband. The people who made the extra effort to support us and the people who ignored my feelings. At first I told myself I wouldn't tell people next time til I was further along but after thinking about it I changed my mind. More than half the women I told had miscarriages themselves and I never knew. It's so sad that we never talk about the miscarriages bc it's a part of so many families. I'm not sad or mad to talk about my miscarriage. I want to help others to openly discuss it! We all need others to lean on!
