I am so grateful for the Pregnancy Loss board. When I lost my baby, I felt like no one understood what I was going through. The women here truly understand the pain, heartbreak and grief. When I am sad or down or need to vent I know that the members here will be there to comfort me. We have so many women here with different stories, ones of ectopic loss, molar pregnancy, miscarriage in the first trimester, and later term losses. Each woman brings their experience and support to the group. The way that everyone offers hugs, advice, comfort and support is just wonderful.
My miscarriage was the worst time of my life. When I felt like no one around me understood, when I didn't understand, when I was so lost I couldn't even recognize myself I found a place where everyone could help me understand. People around me tried to comfort and support me, but they always seemed to say or do exactly the wrong thing. The women at iVillage's Pregnancy Loss message board always said and did the right thing. They helped me understand and they knew how I felt and always told me what I needed to hear. I honestly do not know how I would have made it through those first few weeks without the women here.
Losing my baby was the most horrible experience I've had to experience. My friends and family were there for me, but could not really understand my deep pain and the deep feelings of emptiness and guilt that I was feeling. This board is my best support, each one of us really knows and understands the pain and the grief one goes through when losing a child.
Finding this board was truly a blessing. No one can understand the pain of a loss like miscarriage, unless they've been there themselves. The love and understanding you get from these women is truly a gift. I'd have been lost without this board.
When I lost my first pregnancy, I felt so alone. My husband tried to comfort me, but he really didn't feel the loss like I did. Someone else directed me to this board and it helped me tremendously. After suffering my second loss, I knew I could come back to this board and be comforted. It's a wonderful place to vent, grieve and give and receive advice. Being here has helped me heal. Knowing that I'm not alone is priceless.
