Although most women will not experience difficulties with their pregnancy, some ladies will. Unfortunately, some pregnancies will end in the tragic loss of a baby. Whether you haved lost your baby to miscarriage, abortion or stillbirth the pain and emotional heartache can be very traumatizing.
A pregnancy can be lost in a variety of ways. A miscarriage occurs before 20 weeks of gestation and occurs suddenly. An ectopic pregnancy occurs when the fertilized egg latches onto the outside of the uterus, where it cannot survive. During a molar pregnancy, there is usually not a getus inside of the uterus, but a mass is present. When a pregnancy is lost after the 20th week, it is referred to as a stillbirth.
While these types of losses can be very different from one another, the end result is still the same. It is important for women to talk with one someone about the feelings they are experiencing during this time of grief. It is very hard to lose something that you were looking forward to having.
