This human experience is very meaningful in my life. First of all birth is supposed to bring joy to any person. And it did, when I found out that I was going to have a baby it was the happiest feeling of my life. Being that I had already had two boys this just felt special. I felt like it was going to be a girl, or rather I just say I knew it was going to be a girl. Well, got into my second trimester and the doctor didn’t think I would make it through the pregnancy. The doctor didn’t tell me what was going on really so all I knew was I was going into pre-term labor and the doctors was having me go to the hospital once a week for stress testing. It wasn’t until one of the nurses at the hospital asks me did I know I was going to lose the baby. That really took a toll on me it felt like my whole world was shattered.
The loss of a pregnancy is a traumatic and emotional event for a woman, but when the miscarriage is an early loss some women may feel confused by their feelings of grief. No matter when a miscarriage occurs, a woman needs to understand that her feelings are valid.
