i'm no doctor, but i know that fumes from ammonia and bleach are dangerous even if you're NOT prego. unfortunately, it's something you will probably never know. I've lost two and with the second one, there was absolutely no reason given. it definitely hurts when i think of the loss, even now, years later. but i am prego again, and am hoping for the best. good luck to you :)

I am still feeling pretty down in the dumps over the loss of my pregnancy . I was curious , does anyone know if mixing bleach with amonia and breathing in the fumes cause a miscarriage ? the saturday before i lost my pregnancy , my coworker poured straight bleach on a thick trail of mouse urine . i work in a pet store and we sell the little critters for feeding snakes and lizards . but i was wondering if that might have been the cause of my baby dying . i was fine until he did that . after i had unknowingly breathed in the vapors from it my throat started to burn , he did it while i was in the opposite side of the room cleaning and of course there isn't proper ventilation on the side i was on . then a couple hours later i started to feel different , sunday i felt different too and had a nagging feeling to go to the ER but there was no blood or cramping other wise i felt fine . but when i woke up monday morning , i knew something wasnt right . an hour after i got to work i started bleeding . i dont want to get all into again but i lost my baby that day . but could the bleach and amonia been the cause ?

your period will be spacey for a little while im sure. its alot to read, but if u read my ' this is my story' blog it explains my mirena experiance also. i hated it! very much. the pregnancy that happened three months after mirena was removed was a chemical pregnancy. and a devistating one at that! i hated mirena. with a mad fiery burning passion! im sorry it caused you issues. you should test, just to rule it out and ease your mind. i would love to keep in touch if you would be alright with that? i am always looking for new friends here. and its hard because i am just now opening up more to this site and its not working like i want it too if that makes sense? Im felisha. i dont remember if i told you my name haha. oh my im rambling again! agh! hope you have a good night!

Thank you so much for responding! I am just trying to convince myself that this is all normal & my body is out of whack from the Mirena coming out, the miscarriage & now a new form of BC. However the other part of me wants to test bc now my boons are becoming sensitive and that never happens during my periods. I know a person can freak themselves in to thinking they're pregnant but I have been through a lot lately and have a little guy that just turned 1... I don't think I'm quite ready to be pg again. I've always wanted 4 kids & planned to keep them 2-3 years apart. I just don't know what I should do. Maybe I'll test in the morning since I'll be 6 days late and go from there. Thanks again for your advice!

i see it takes a while for any one to respond around here so i thought i would respond to you :) when i had my chemical pregnancy my body went all spazzy. my period was late the next month, then way early the next and i couldnt for the life of me figure out a patter. since they put u righ tback on bc im surprised that urn ot normal cycles yet. i guess that happens it takes time for your cycle to regulate at all with medication like bc and after a mc like that. im sorry for your loss and im sory that your dr didn pay any attention to you when mirena came out.. mirena gave me alot of problems and i hated it! Hope all is well. i will try to check back here and see if you responnded .. hope you are going to do alright. and if your going to ttc good luck

I conceived in April after my Mirena came loose during sex. My doc checked it & told me it was fine and in its right place, never once asking me to come back for a blood test or ultrasound to rule out pregnancy. On June 25th my Mirena came out on its own. My doc made me an spot for a few days later, on the 26th I started bleeding heavily, soaking through a pad almost every hour with clots. I called the doc and they said I'd be fine. When I came in for my scheduled appt, I was still bleeding heavily. They ran some cultures & found that I was miscarrying.
Its been almost 2 months. I never got a period in July and I swear I am getting ready to start (should've on Sunday) bc I'm bloated, gassy & cramping.
Is this normal?? I just assumed my cycles would go back to normal right away bc they put me on the Pill immediately. And I haven't missed a pill.

I'm currently going thru a miscarriage. I thought I was going crazy especially since my boyfriend doesn't want to try again. I've decided I'm going to try again just not say anything till I get a bfp and I'm atleast 12 weeks I have a 3year old son so I think this miscarriage was a fluke of some sort. I know he will be supportive I just think he's scared I'll lose the baby so I'm just not going to say anything I pray that I finally conceive a healthy baby!!! I'm still taking my prenatal and staying healthy. How soon after I stop bleeding can I start trying again?

i have just joined this site, I am 37 yrs of age and have a 13yr old boy. My huband and i have tried for a baby for 12yrs. I hve pcos (polycistic Ovarium Syndrome) and struggled to get pregnant with my first baby. After being on Chlomid for 2 x 6 months in a space of 3 yrs. nothing happened. then out of the blue when i had given up hope i found out that i had managed to conceive all on my own. My 2nd little miracle. we were all shocked and knocked for six and even when i had a scan at 9wks still couldnt believe it. Then at 12 wks i had another scan baby was fine grown waving at us and everything i was so happy. then 2 days after my 12 wk scan disaster i started to bleed i had another scan and again hb was there baby was fine and was told that this was nothing more than a burst blood vessel. 13 wks 4 days still bleeding so went back to ane and they did a vaginal exam i was told everything was ok and i was being kept in to monitor the bleed. 5 mins later the baby came away all intact connected to the placenta and everything. my whole world shattered i was absolutely devastated. I have had a funeral for my baby which the hospital has paid for. But i cannot cope with the loss, I Cannot accept that this was nature i cannot understand why they would make me wait 12 yrs to take it away. i cry on a daily basis for my loss and people tell me time is a healer. I am losing a brown stringy discharge and have been now since i lost my little jellybean. it is not all the time every 2 days then i will stop then it comes again have been to the doctors about this and they said that this can carry on for a while after. It has been 12wks since i lost my baby and still find it difficult to accept.

My husband and I tried to conceive our second child for almost 2 1/2 years. We did fertility treatmeants for 6 months. I was finally ovulating, but still not getting pregnant. In March (after yet another BFN) We decided to stop the treatments. I couldnt take it anymore. Unexpectingly I found out I was pregnant in May. I had concieved in April. WITHOUT MEDS!!! We knew this baby was such a blessing and we were so thankful to god. Thanking him and praising him. At my first appointment our world came crashing down. I had been cramping a week prior and had an ultra sound in the ER and heard the heart beat. Measured 6 weeks 4 days. On this day of my appointment I should have been 7 weeks 4 days but the baby was only measuring 7 weeks 1 day and there was no heart beat. This was by far, the worst day of my life. I couldnt believe that the lord would give us this blessing after all we had been threw and then just take it all away. I have been with my husband for 7 years and for the first time ever I saw him cry. How do I get out of this feeling? How can I be ok being around a pregnant women? When can I see a baby and not cry? When will I stop feeling so mad that we lost our baby? Does this feeling ever go away? Will my sadness ever turn back into happiness?

HI everyone, I am currently 'pregnant' with my 3rd, but it is about to end in m/c. I had a strange feeling after i got my bfp that something wasn't right. I had been really nauseous for a week, headaches, tired, hunger... the works!! but every day or 2 i would have no symptoms at all and a feeling that I just wasn't pregnant. So i decided to have hcg levels checked. They were 770, which was a very good sign. i was quite relieved and went on to think everything was ok, but knew I had to do one more test to make sure they were doubling. I had 2nd test done 2 days later and they had dropped to just over 600. So I am now just waiting for the m/c to start. Is there anyone else in this forum that has had this happen to them? How long did it take waiting for the m/c to start? I just had bloods done again this morning, to see what they have dropped to. Does anyone know what levels they need to get down to for m/c to start. I had a blighted ovum couple of years ago, but didn't know until i started to actually miscarry, this time I know its coming.... just wondering when??? Had some cramping last night and was hoping it might be starting, but nothing again today. I really hate this waiting. It is so hard as i am still suffering pg symptoms also, so feels very confusing to my heart/mind and body. Anyone with similar experience or info about this, would love to hear from you. Thanks for reading my post.

This is my 3rd pregnancy. i had a misscarriage in 2008 at 10 wks. Then a beautiful baby boy in 2009 :) my last miscarriage was in june 2010 which was the worst :( i was only 10 wks but it was so traumatic! i started bleeding for a few days and tried to be positive but one morning at 5 am i started bleeding heavily & the pain was getting worse by the min. i had to send my partner to tesco to get some pads cos the bleeding was so bad it just flooded out of me. before he got home i was screaming down the phone at him saying the baby has come out!!! i was sitting on the sofa on a folded bath towel and then i had to sit up a & thats when it happened!! it was devasting to see what i thought was the baby come out of me lying on the floor. my partner came home & i had to hold the towel between my legs & go upstairs to the bathroom where i felt like i was gonna faint. i was so sick which i had to do in the bath while i was on the loo trying to stop the bleeding. i got down stairs & my mum was there as my partner had to call her cos he was worried for me. she called the docs who sent a doc to my house & she gave me something to help with the sickness & then called an ambulance. Once i got to the hospital they doc had to take a many clots out of me as possible to help stop the bleeding. i was addmitted to hospital to keep an eye on the bleeding. it eventually stopped after 5 hrs and then i had to go to have a scan to check what stage the misscarriage was at. while we are waiting i suddenly felt terrible and nearly passed out so i had to lay down and then felt better. once back on the Ward i was given the option to wait till the following day & have a d&c or take the pill to finish the misscarriage and see what that does. so i decided to take the pill. 7 hrs later it started to work at 1am! thats when the clotting got worse and worse & every 15 mins i was filling adult size nappies with what looked like masses of bloody grapes ( gross i know),the nurses had to weight it cos there was so much. while this carried on through the night i couldnt stop being sick & i couldnt walk for fear of fainting! i had to have a canula (along with the others i already had! put in my arm to give me the anti sickness drug as i couldnt keep anything down. having this done & being sick in the bowl in the same arm was not much fun either. by the morning i couldnt register much or even talk and i can remember trying to text my mum but it took forever and the next thing i remember is a nurse calling my name and then about 8 ppl around my bed wheeling me down to emergency surgery. i could hear them saying that they needed to call my family. next thing i wake up in recovery and i had to have 2 units of blood! my family was allowed to come & see me in recovery since they were so worried about me.once the drugs a & new blood started to work i began to feel better.The last time they took my blood presure was a 5pm the previous evening and i think that if they had took it regulary then i would not have need emergency surgery!! so i cant say im not annoyed about what happened but i can say that they saved my life! after a few days in the ward i recovered and was sent home :) the following day i had a crushing headache and i couldnt bear any light. i had to call my mum to come to the house and she called the doc who come round to do tests a & sent for an ambulance to another hospital for a ct scan and a lumbar puncture! i recovered after a few days & was sent home. im so glad thats all over and that i had my beautiful son and can now think about the future. it was very traumatic for me & my partner too a & we found it very hard this time round but we got throught it and to this day i still cant believe i had a blood transfusion!!!

I just suffered losing my baby at 15 weeks 5 days. I created a page on facebook to get bring awarness and support to what I'm trying to do. I'm making beautiful matching bracelets for demise babies and their mothers. I'll be donating these to the local hospitals but am willing to donate them to anyone who has lost a baby or babies before - just asking for a small donation in return since this is all coming out of my pocket.
I hope to bring some comfort to ladies during a hard time that I've experienced twice.

I have previously had a missed miscarriage in April, I had some brown discharge at 10 weeks and a scan confirmed that the baby had not grown past 6 weeks. I then miscarried at home. It took 6 month ttc and then finally a positive pregnancy test. I was supposed to have a scan at 8 weeks but couldn't get an appointment until 10 weeks as I wasn't high prioirity as there was no pain or bleeding so I had to wait. We were both so excited and I felt this time would be good news but again there was no heartbeat and the baby had only grown to 6 and a half weeks. I then had to wait another week for a scan and the sonographer said the baby was starting to come away. I have since had some light bleeding but I am just waiting to see what happens over the next few days so hopefully I won't need an operation. Although we are both devastated I know the worst is yet to come as I felt terrible when I fully miscarried due to the hormone levels fluctuating. Despite all this we will ttc asap and I pray that our luck will change very soon. In the UK no tests are done until you have had 3 consecutive miscarriages, I'm hoping it doesn't get to this stage.

Hello ladies, I was 9w3days yesterday and had an ultrasound, and they couldn't find a heartbeat! For some odd reason I have had an awful feeling about this pregnancy from the start! I guess I was just waiting for the day for them to tell me it was over. I work in this field so I thought that that meant I would be better prepared, but I guess I was wrong. No matter what the situation is it's never easy. I keep telling myself that it is going to be okay and I look at my beautiful little boy that I already have and try to think that I have it better than other women. I guess in a way I am so upset because I have a very hard time getting pregnant and my husband and I tried for over a year for this one, and for it to end this way just doesn't seem so fair! My heart goes out to everyone who has to experience this, and just hope that we can all move on from here!

hello ladies, well i never even thought about the idea of a miscarriage (that wont happen to me !) well it did, it happened 8 days ago, its taken me that long to start thinking straight again.
I was 8 1/2 weeks pregnant with my first and woke up with a light brown discharge and thought i should get it checked, it was strange because for the last couple of days i had been saying to Dh that i didnt feel preg anymore.
Well i was right unfortunately i was taken into hospital there and then and had the pills inserted and the following day a D &C.
I was convinced this was my fault for some reason but it was just "one of those things". I was devastated but over the last week have started feeling positive again, this one wasnt to be for some reason so we will try again and if it doesnt work then we will try again. I have been given different opinions from doctors and midwives etc about how long to wait, so i suppose i will just listen to my body it will tell me when im ready.
To every lady who has been through this my heart really does go out to you, and for those trying again then maybe we can all go through this again together and draw strength from each other. sending positive and healing thoughts to you all xxx

I miscarried yesterday and i'm sure i can't say anymore about how i feel then many of you have. I'm hurt, yet so angry. This is my 3rd miscarriage this year and i feel as though i'm all cried out. If it wasn't for my DD i don't think i could hold it together. Saying that, i don't think i'm doing such a great job at that. Yesterday i was a wreck. Today i was in so much pain that i couldn't think about much else. DH had to stay at home yesterday and today to sort out DD becasue i couldn't even lift her. It's so easy to say don't give up and keep trying. I never want to... But i know i can't take all this heartache. What's worse, i have now started thinking, 'What is it that i have done so bad to have this keep happening to me?'. But i know that's ridiculous. All i want is a baby. A beautiful little blessing to add to my already great family, but my own body is failing me. I just feel so much anger right now at myself.

Wow, I just had the biggest crying fit ever going through all the posts on this page. I had a miscarriage last April at 10 weeks, it was the hardest thing I have ever gone through. I am currently 17 weeks pregnant, and am constantly trying to keep positive for my baby, but it really is hard, I worry something will happen again. I am still sad about my miscarriage last year, it was such a shock, and I was in shock for a while afterwards... I couldn't deal with it, and my boyfriend and I started argueing like crazy because we were both so upset, it made things 10 times worse. Anyways, I hope you ladies keep trying, and good luck in the future, things do look up :):)

Me and DH have had 4 misscarriages between 6 wks and 11 weeks in 4 yrs. He made me get an IUD because he dosent want to try anymore. All I can think about is pulling out my IUD and having my DH inpregnate me. I don't think I will ever get over wanting to be pregnant and having another baby untill the day I die! I hope know one has to feel the pain I do every day of my life. There isnt an antidepressent out there that can or will ever make me feel better.

First to all of you I know the pain and anxiousness never truly goes away. I have had 2 M/C's within the last year and am currently pregnant again, but have this unsettling feeling that I am losing this one. I had some cramping/twinging yesterday afternoon and I'm at 7 weeks (this is the same time I lost my other two babies). With my first I heard a heartbeat at 7 weeks and then went back at 10 weeks and they could find no heartbeat and said the baby stopped growing at 7 weeks...never had any kind of symptoms of miscarriage. My second heard heartbeat at 5.5 weeks and lost it at 6.5 weeks. I will be praying for all of us for some type of sense of peace and for a future healthy pregnancy.

Has anyone had a miscarriage after 20weeks? My baby might not make it. I'm so numb right now. I'm worried about her I'm scared about what I will go through if she doesnt make it. The Cardiologist said that the doctor will give me meds to induce labor! I'm worried if that will work because I didnt dilate with my son (after being induced) I had a csection (he's almost two yrs). My mind is racing with a millions questions that I wanted answered now!! As of right now my baby is still alive; I'm just trying to prepare myself for the worst and the doc said today chances are I will miscarry. :(
