So I found out I was pregnant a little while ago, and I was 5 weeks along..at 7 weeks I started bleeding. At first I thought it was spotting like with my first pregnancy. But when it wouldn't stop and got heavier I worried. I lost my child at 7 weeks. Its been a few weeks since this has all happened and I feel guilty like its my fault. And now im in baby mode and want one so bad but idk how long we should wait, and what to do to help get through a miscarriage. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I'm so sorry to here what has happened, but don't you give up I'll bet I might have even made you more fertile , only heard this from some articles I actually read some here and I'm researching it as well. I'm over age a bit and getting ready to go for tubal reversal surgery to try to TTC myself. The risk for me is a little high so I've been putting skin absorbing progesterone cream on my belly twice a day to help prevent miscarriages . So hope this help a little, and guilt is a normal reaction I figure but don't disheart things happen to us all. I'm here if its ant consulacion and oh yes ma'am will ever answer.

      I am so sorry for your loss. It isn't your fault. Many times there is nothing really to explain why a miscarriage happens. I have experience six miscarriages so I know how hard it is. Your doctor will probably recommend waiting at least 3 months before trying to conceive again. Let your body heal and talk things over with your partner. You will know when the time is right.

      Grieving a miscarriage takes time. Give yourself time to heal. You could make a donation to a charity or hospital organization that supports pregnancy loss. Plan a perennial flower or tree in memory of your child. Journaling your feelings can help, if that is your kind of outlet. Exercise to relieve stress and clear your mind. Talking to others who have been through the same thing...your doctor or local hospital may be able to recommend a grief or pregnancy loss support group.
