Miscarriage Photos & Videos

HAPPY EASTER From a Swedish (& English) Easter-witch . I look at this photo from quite a few years back it always put a smile on my face. Little did we know at the time what we were about to go through with treatment, miscarriages and other things on this soul-destroying “journey” This Insta-community has really helped me making this path of our quest for a baby Robins so much easier and I am so grateful I found these squares and the amazing people behind them 💛🐣 I hope I can put a smile on someone else’s face today with this photo as today can be a hard day for many xx . #infertilitysucks #miscarriage #miscarriagesurvivor #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #infertilitysupport #infertility #ivf #ivfstrongertogether #ivfwarriors #fertility #fertilityawareness #infertilityawareness #fertilitysupport

On the way to the cemetary to light a candle. I searched and found this specific cemetary - there is some kind of monument for unborn children. Thinking for a long time we should do this. Also, today is the due date of my pregnancy that started last fall (which was finally a blighted ovum). And the fact that my period started this week doesn't make this day any easier. I hope this ritual would make it easier to move on. It is a beautiful spring day and the snow is melting away. I will fucking make it. 💪😤 . . . #ihadamiscarriage #miscarriage #infertility #infertilitysucks #ttc

Last day of antibiotics! Wooh! A month is a long time, my skin currently hates me but thank god my gut doesn’t thanks to these little gems! I normally take these when im on keflex as i get (tmi sorry) the worst thrush from it, i thought with being on antibiotics for a month a similar thing might happen so ramped up the good gut bacteria. On top of this little gem i added a kiflir and kept up with my kambucha. Top tips for ladies who are needing antibiotics ever. Now onto all my hormone tests this month to make sure my progesterone is normal and make sure all my hormones have gone back to where they are suppose to be. Now my body is playing ball tome to start working on my mind! #miscarriage #miscarriageawareness #pelvicinfection #antibiotics #goodguts #gutbacteria

MTHFR (methyl-tetrahydoflate reductase) is an enzyme that converts folate from the food we eat, into its active form 5-MTHF, or 5 methyl-tetrahydrofolate. Super common, around 60% of us have a polymorphism (a fault) on the either of the two genes (A1298 or C677T) that encode for MTHFR. Effectively, this means a reduced ability to use folate by between 30-70% ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ METHYLATION & RECURRENT MISCARRIAGES⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of two most common genetic mutations reported in miscarriages is MTHFR. Active folate, active B12, B2, choline, SAMe and tri-methylglycine are essential nutrients for methylation reactions. Methylation is important for proper oestrogen metabolism & DNA & RNA formation and repair, both essential for fertility & embryonic growth and development. With inadequate methylation due to MTHFR defect & poor folate utilisation, our bodies are unable to detect and fix DNA & RNA errors. Thus abnormal cells develop and multiply, potentially leading to recurrent miscarriages⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ DIFFICULTY CONCEIVING⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Research suggests that an untested, unrecognised and therefore untreated MTHFR gene mutation may contribute to "unexplained infertility". Women trying to conceive are prescribed folic acid. If you have an MTHFR defect then we don't utilise that folic acid- we can't activate it. Folic acid is NOT FOLATE. Instead, that folic acid blocks real folate transport, receptors and usage. Potentially, too much folate may interfere with conception. People with an MTHFR defect can only tolerate an upper limit of 400 mcg daily (not the commonly prescribed 800 mcg)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ __________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do do about it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Given it is such a common genetic defect, all couples trying to conceive or suffering recurrent unexplained miscarriages should have their MTHFR enzyme tested via blood or buccal swab. Easy & cheap⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Eat organic food that has not been fortified with folic acid (all non-organic wheat products have been fortified since 2009)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. Eat 3-5 cups leafy green veggies daily for real folate intake⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Miranda xx

Have you given up the hopes of having a baby? In vitro fertilization is the right choice then. In vitro fertilization ( #IVF) is one of the more widely known types of assisted reproductive technology (ART). IVF works by using a combination of medicines and surgical procedures to help sperm fertilize an egg, and help the fertilized egg implant in your uterus.

As the sun sets on Easter 2019 I want to send my love out to everyone who braved the day today, even though they may not have wanted to. To those who were missing someone today and to those who are facing any kind of hardship or heartache, I think you are an inspiration for any way you chose to face the day. I am proud of your incredible ability to survive. You are an amazing human being. You are capable of so much and you should be incredibly proud.

I have felt so good lately. When you have a run of good days/weeks/ months you forget what it feels like to have a bad day. So numb. So negative. So many whys and what the fucks. So today is Easter. I am enjoying my little family. I am taking time for me with a book and letting myself feel my feels. Flash backs from last year surprising my parents at Easter I was pregnant... to have it taken away around this time last year is a kick in the guts. Easter and Christmas are fast becoming reminders of the miscarriages, failed transfers and all the negatives. It’s a hard thing to keep the mind positive and see all the magic and joy in these special days! I vow not to let this journey ruin anything for my family and I. One day at a time this week. 👌🌤 #infertilityhurts #secondaryinfertility #miscarriage #adenomyosis #endometriosis #ivf #ivffail #ttc #ttccommunity #bekindtoyourself #ivfjourney

I understand the pain and heartache. It’s ok to not be ok. Especially on days like these. . I remember not too long ago feeling this sadness, anger and even some bitterness. . I so desperately longed to be able to do all the “kid events” during holidays. Some holidays hit more than others, but most seemed to come back to the fact that I didn’t have a child yet. . That our holidays were tainted by this reminder yet again. . That no matter where I turned I would see something that was kid related and my heart would ping again. . During our darkest days, we began avoiding most holidays and became somewhat secluded. It was easier on some levels. . Until one day we realized we had to live again. We had to create traditions for our family, even if it was just going to be the two of us. We had to stop waiting for the “one day”. . We began making lists of memories that meant a lot to each of us and determined which activities, meals, etc, we were going to incorporate into our holidays. . This was a huge turning point for us and united us as a family-even if it was just for 2 + 4 fur babies. . It gave us something to look forward to that was just ours. We were no longer holding back and focusing on all the “can’t do’s”. Instead we were creating our own unique traditions that we could share with our future baby. . I know how hard it is. I know the deep pain in your gut. Try to find something you can do as your family of two that brings meaning back into your holidays. . What have you found to be helpful to get you through really difficult times/days?

Did it again. Buying baby clothes and I'm not even pregnant. When I seen this I feel in love with it. Heidi (2nd child) had the same type of romper but had a cute bunny on it. The colour suited her so much and was one of my favorite piece of clothing. Took me back to that memory. Maybe that's why I love it so much. #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #ttctribe #babyclothes #pcos #pcossupport #pcossucks #rainbowbaby #waitingforourrainbow #miscarriage #miscarriageawareness #miscarriagesupport #journey #journeytofive #baby #babygirl #babygirlclothes

Hyperemesis Gravidarum aka HG aka the root of all evil aka why me aka when does it stop 😩😩🤮🤮🤢🤢🤢 I suffered from this.. getting pregnant is a joy in itself but when you experience this it makes you question your strength. Many days I had to look myself in the mirror and say "YOU GOT THIS", "IT'S ONLY A LITTLE THROW UP". The feeling of being so weak you can't even move out of bed because rising makes you vomit your entire life up or the feeling of being helpless because you can't do anything for yourself. Let's not talk about those who say "it can't be that bad, you're overdoing it or you're making it out to be more than what it is". My go to meds where Phenergan Suppositories when those stopped I went on to 100mg of B6 and Unisom just to sleep in the night. Hyperemesis gravidarum is the most severe form of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy, characterized by persistent nausea and vomiting associated with ketosis and weight loss (>5% of prepregnancy weight). This condition may cause volume depletion, electrolytes and acid-base imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, and even death. Severe hyperemesis requiring hospital admission occurs in 0.3-2% of pregnancies. The defining symptoms of hyperemesis gravidarum are gastrointestinal in nature and include nausea and vomiting. Other common symptoms include ptyalism (excessive salivation), fatigue, weakness, and dizziness. #rainbowbaby #stitchessaveslives #miraclebaby #progesterone #ttc #micropreemie #pregnancyafterloss #preemie #ttccommunity #ttc #babyboy #cerclage #cerclagesuccess #23weekspregnant #hungry #hyperemesisgravidarum #hyperemesis #hyperemesisawareness #hyperemesissurvivor #miscarriagesurvivor #miscarriagesupport #miscarriage #pcos #fibroids #lifeafterloss #pregnancyafterloss

This was posted and shared to me. It’s crazy how certain friends have just been brilliant whilst others that you would have taken a bullet for - you don’t even talk to these days. I totally get it. Selfish people lead selfish lives, people who have only lost a grandparent have never dealt with loss like the loss of a child or a mother. This journey has taught me so many life’s lessons but I think I’m done learning now god so can we just get this show on the road and make the next cycle a baby that I can hold? Thank you real friends you have been amazing. The old child good ones that’s have gone - I have nothing left in my heart to give or say. The ones that have stuck around - thank you for being my family x . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #ivfjourney #ivfsisters #friendsforever #friends #ivftwins #ivfwarrior #ivfbaby #ivfcommunity #ivfmiracle #blesivfam #infertility #infertilityawareness #infertilitysucks #miscarriageawareness #miscarriage #babylosssupport #ivficsi

Hey #instafam it's been a hot minute since I've been on here. It's time to play a little catch up on life. In January, my fiance and I found out we were pregnant. My #wlsfam can vouch for me when I say this was a miracle. We were so excited and nervous for this special time in our lives. After a couple of concerning doctors visits, we found out I was having a miscarriage. I've never experienced this kind of heartbreak before. At this time, I'm still following up with my doctor to make sure my levels go back down appropriately. On April 8th, my hcg level was at 41.1 mIU/ML and progesterone at 0.4 ng/mL. I go back early this week to repeat labs. Please send prayers and positivity our way. ❤️ February 19th, 2019. 👼 #miscarriage #miscarriageawareness #miscarriagesupport #support #lifeafterwls #fertility #fertilityjourney #life #weightlossjourney #weightlossgoals #health #fightlikeagirl #babyloss #babylosssupport #babylossawareness #loss #grieving #grievingprocess #pregnant #pregnancy #pregnancyloss #pregnancytest #pregnancydiary #pregnancyproblems #pregnancyjourney #pregnancyafterwls #pregnancylossawareness at Nashville, Tennessee

I love that I get to use this platform for more than just gift box sales. I get to use it to connect, to inform, to bring awareness, to shine light, to spread joy and so much more. - ✨ Today I want to send out some big virtual hugs and I want to let my sisters in solidarity know that I am rooting for them and praying wholeheartedly! - ❣️ I signed up for this subscription box (pictured) with no knowledge of the future. We were expecting and then we weren't. I tried but couldn't bring myself to call or email to cancel so I cried my eyes out every month when a new reminder/box arrived on our doorstep. - 🚪 Finally after 4 months of what felt like torture, I mustered up the courage to send an email and let the stranger at Her Growing Tribe know that mine was not. I found these boxes tucked quietly away when I was cleaning today and the cries of women still enduring the pain of this journey were so loud. - 😭 If that woman is you and YOU are the reason I have not been able to stop thinking about this all day long, I want you to know that I hear you, I see you, I feel your pain and you are not alone in it, sister! I am sending you some GIGANTIC virtual hugs today and I am praying for you, Mama. - 👭 Keep your chin up! Don't lose hope and remember that there is a living breathing person behind this screen who would be honored, absolutely honored, to connect with you! Sending you all of my love, Nicole. - . . . . . #honestmotherhood #liveauthentic #virtualhug #mattersoftheheart #joycomesinthemorning #miscarriage #1in4 #morethanjustaloss

When I look at the world with all of its brokenness, the sick, broken-hearted, poor, and dying. It makes me want to beat my fists to the earth, but it’s in these moments that I also remember that Jesus died for all of this that he’s taking all of this and making it new. Every little thing is becoming new. I see it in all the little ways I see that people are fighting for goodness and love in this world. I see it when people comfort the sick and dying, when people feed the hungry, and even when my child cries as he acknowledges someone else’s deep sadness. There’s hope—the beauty lies in the heart of all the broken and it flows out even we don’t realize it.

I know you all mean well, but at the Easter dinners tomorrow, as you squeal with delight at the pregnancy announcements and ooh and ahh over the new little bundles of joy, think of those who might be freshly mourning or those who have mourned seven years ago and managed to go on to have three more children. That loss never leaves you. You never forget the milestones they should have passed. She should be sixteen this year and being taught how to drive. 🖤 . . #pregnancyloss #infantloss #miscarriage #pregnancyandinfantloss #pregnancy #pregnancyandinfantlossawareness #miscarriagelossawareness #noneofitisyourfault #thisnotyourfault #godhasplanswedontunderstand #yesitsokaytogetmadathim #personal

I lost you #21yearsagotoday and the pain doesn’t ever go away. I wasn’t blessed with a rainbow baby. The pain from losing you is so intense, there are times it hurts to breathe. No one understands. I am alone in this pain. All I’ve ever wanted to be was a mama and I’m so very angry to this day that I’ve been deprived of that. #IWillAlwaysLoveYou #miscarriage #miscarriagepainlastforever #forevermybaby #icantwaittomeetyou #heavenisaheartbeataway #iyearntoholdyou #foreverheartbroken #ididntgetmyrainbowbaby #foreverangry #iwantedyousobad #youwerewanted #youwereneeded #youtookmysoul #imnothingwithoutyou #ILOVEYOU

sticking with 100% honesty - i feel terrible. the blocker wore off, the pain meds aren’t doing a damn thing, my entire body feels like a giant bruise (my bed hurts to even lay on), and i have a headache that won’t quit. the only upside is that there’s no bleeding or cramping, and for that i’m incredibly grateful. but this experience still sucks. truly it’s fucking awful. but if i had to make the choice again - i’d get the surgery, no hesitation. this is still worlds more tolerable than passing a child naturally (for me **this is just my experience and in no way would i convince a mother to go through this in any way except what she chooses**). so yeah, just an update that this road is still just as bumpy and winding as it was before, just in a new way. and no colorful filters make it feel any less horrible. #1in4 #iam1in4 #pregnancyloss #pregnancylossawareness #miscarriage at Baltimore, Maryland

Vulnerable post— This is real, raw grief. This is today—13.5 yrs after the fact. I’ve said it over and over, there is NO timeline on grief. Wounds scar, they don’t go away. Grief shifts, but lingers. The only way I can describe my grief at 13 yrs is when it hits, it is a deep ache in my heart. It’s physical and fees like a drill twisting. It catches my breath. There’s a deep longing. My heart is a stone weight penetrating into my chest. . Today I wept tears of longing, sorrow, regret, and empty arms. Two children waiting on the other side of the veil. Two children absent at the table. One child who has no grave and who most do not acknowledge (a #miscarriage) or know how to. I do not share for pity, but for understanding so you can show empathy for those around you. Lest you worry, I have a testimony of Jesus Christ. I maintain hope, but some days my heart needs to weep and break again and to feel whole. #faceofgrief #infantloss #death #angel #angelmom #angeldad #easter #griefandloss #griefjourney #lifeafterloss #empathy

Easter will always remind me of growing babies - from eight years ago when we told family about this dear one at just four weeks to the Easters 🤢 🤢 🤢 growing Saoirse and Ayrton ❤️ ! After three miscarriages I was doubting whether being a mother was in God’s plan for me. Here she is, the first one to call me “mama”, our Ellie, our sunshine. I kicked a ball in her face playing soccer with her yesterday. Later I asked if we could pretend it was Adam that did that but she said, “no, because that’s not true.” Bet this ended up in a different place than you expected. #andsogoesmotherhood 📷 @Elizabethalisondickson

This is not the kind of announcement Brett + I ever anticipated to make about our little secret. However, I miscarried our sweet baby early Wednesday morning. . . Emotionally, it has been a hard week. Just the thought that we won’t have our sweet baby apart of our family is hard. But we know that this was God’s plan + we are finding peace and comfort in that. . . As we drove to the doctor, the radio played quietly in the background. I listened to the words + was overwhelmed with emotions knowing God was speaking to us, asking us to trust Him. . . “I will trust in You You've never failed before I will trust in You If there's a road I should walk Help me find it If I need to be still Give me peace for the moment Whatever Your will Whatever Your will Can you help me find it Can you help me find it For every step I've never been alone Even when it hurts, You'll have Your way Even in the valley I will say With every breath You've never let me go.” . God is so so good + faithful, even in the hard times. 💛 at Marion, Iowa

Baby Case, if you know one thing I hope you know that you are loved. Today is the 1st anniversary of your due date, and I remember the days we had with you with fondness. You are my 5th baby and 3rd April baby. There's a beauty about April that I still love, and I love that the memory of you is part of that. Two days before your spirit flew into the arms of your Creator, I had the privilege of hearing your heartbeat and seeing your active little self fill a screen. What relief that was to your mommy's heart. I truly thought all was well. Sometimes I feel like I didn't do good enough to take care of you, but please know I did everything I could and knew to do. You'll always be my baby and we'll always remember you for the hope that you gave us. So thankful that you are safe in the arms of Jesus tonight.

I am real. You won’t see the “highlight reel” from me, not because I’m a negative person but because I live on the cusp of gratitude, hope and conscious reality. I feel ALL the feels... so much more deeply than I want to. I acknowledge the dark because without it the light would be so much less impactful. Holidays carry a heaviness now. Traditions I created. Traditions we can no longer do in the same way. Traditions the kids are longing for this weekend. Traditions I have to do alone because they are worried the bunny won’t come if I don’t do them. When their hearts are in pieces there is no way mine isn’t. Positivity doesn’t automatically make it all go away. I find it is much more effective for me to reach out and find someone to sit in the dark with me for just a little bit while I process all of the heaviness and then walk out into the light with them. I am so grateful that I have people in my life who haven’t turned their backs on me and choose to walk with me, at my pace ... even when it seems obnoxiously snail paced❤️ at Merchantville, New Jersey

The overwhelming gratitude I feel about being her mama is sometimes enough to make my knees buckle.... 🌈 You see, she is my “rainbow baby”, meaning her joyous birth followed the devastating miscarriage of her baby brother the year earlier. I was so busy raising my other 3 kids at the time that I never took the time to grieve that loss. I just kept moving.....working...smiling....so I would be strong for her siblings and everyone in my life. I’m always assumed by others to be so strong and so together.... 🌈 But #realtalk here for a moment. This fresh, new loss of our baby granddaughter Liliana on March 28, 2019...after she lived 22 days on Earth...is still so present in our grieving hearts. It honestly has opened the door for me, finally, to also mourn the loss of my baby son from so many years ago... 🌈 Don’t get me wrong. I rejoice that I have my now 4 wonderful children here in my world, but I still have a ♥️ for the little one who didn’t make it here on Earth.... 🌈 I don’t share this to make you feel sad...but to remind you that *everyone* is going through something. They may seem so together on social media or in person, but they may be walking through a dark storm in private.... 🌈 This is a reminder to show extra kindness to everyone you meet. You never know what battles someone is facing. Maybe it’s even you who’s struggling.... 🌈 Kindness costs you nothing, but it may absolutely make someone’s day. ♥️ . . . . . . . . . . #familylife #mamalove #motherhood #infantloss #miscarriage #griefjourney #hope #kindnessmatters #bekind #showlove #randomactsofkindness #grace #blessed #griefsupport #glamgirltx #encouragement #instalove #instadaily

Came across this photo in my camera roll... This photo was taken weeks after our first miscarriage, and weeks before we found out I was pregnant with Greysen. I think it completely incapsulates that time in our lives and our marriage. 💙🌈 #mrandmrs at Toguchi Beach
