A mom writes in asking for advice about the best time to have a baby shower. After experiencing a miscarriage at 26 weeks, this mom, who is pregnant again, wants to know when she can have a baby shower for her baby-to-be.
When I was 15, I got pregnant by a 19-year-old. I didn’t know much about sex and was very naive. I wasn’t put on birth control; I wasn’t even taught about periods. I was homeschooled up until I was 15 as well, so no Sex Ed yet. My family goes to the last ultrasound, I don’t remember how far along I was, but I remember when none of us heard a heartbeat and the words coming out of the woman’s mouth telling me I had had a miscarriage. She and my mother spoke quietly, and the rest of us went to the car. When we got home, my mom took me aside and told me that she said since it’s so little, it would go past on its own two months later, and it had yet to pass. I was getting very sickly, waiting. I got to the point where I couldn’t move much on my own and couldn’t keep any food or liquids down for a week. My mother calls my primary doctor, and she calls me in some medication.

Am I wrong for being bitter? I am having an active miscarriage. If I haven’t fully miscarried by Monday, I will have to have a D&C done due to being in premature labor for a week now.

I had a miscarriage a week and a day ago. My boyfriend and I are eager to try again. My doctor said as soon as my bleeding stops and I’m comfortable with ttc its okay. I have a hard time TTC, and it took almost two years to get pregnant. Is there anything I can do or be prescribed to help the process once I’m ready?

I went to the ob-gyn today. They did an ultrasound Wednesday and said there was no heartbeat.

I had a miscarriage in May, and I’m currently pregnant. I got an ultrasound done, and they said I’m nine weeks, but there was no heartbeat. My HCG levels are 23064.8, so they said that’s normal, but the doctor said since there’s no heartbeat I’m losing the baby. This was the first ultrasound. What makes it worse is that they wouldn’t even let me see it Anonymous Community MemberThis question was asked by a Facebook community member who has asked to remain anonymous.
