HI ladies,

I too, have gone through a recent miscarriage, it has been almost two weeks since my D&C. This was my second pregnancy and I am blesed to have a happy, healthy 16 month old girl.

I write a blog and started writing about the miscarriage after much debate (I have quite a few readers). If any of you are interested, you can visit it at www.closertome.net. I know when I first found out, I scoured the internet to try to find stories similar to mine. I hope reading my experience can help you heal.

While I am glad this board exists, it's sad that it has to.

I am sorry for your loss. I think it is a good think to have a blog to talk about this issue because a lot of women hide it and it doesn't help women in general. Don't get me wrong, it is a very personal thing and I do understand why someone wants to keep quiet. I am just glad to see some talking about it.

I am very sorry about your recent miscarriage. I know how devastating it is when a pregnancy ends far too soon.

I also started writing and posting on a blog after I had my first miscarriage. It was helpful to me and I also felt like it was informative and helpful to others too, who might be going through a similar experience, or who want to support miscarriage survivors, but dont know how, or what to say.

I am aslo sorry that we all have to meet under such sad circumstances, but very grateful that this message board is here. I know its bee na great sourceo f support and comfort to so many women. I hope that it will be for you as well. If you have any questions about what to expect, how to deal with all the emotions, or when to TTC again, please ask. Other miscarriage survivors can be your best resource :)
