Our Second Miscarriage — 20 Comments

  1. I am so sorry you had to go through that yet again.

    It is so hard to stay hopeful afterwards, thinking you have to be there for your children you already have, but also wanting to grieve. It’s such a trying time.

    Thank you for sharing and letting other women know they aren’t alone. It is way more common than anyone thinks.

  2. My husband and I found out yesterday that we lost our baby. I would have been 18 weeks tomorrow. This post fell right into my lap and I’m so glad, thanks for sharing. I too had a feeling that something was off.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss. I have never had a miscarriage but I am getting older and we leave our family planning in the Lord’s hands. I have greatly feared ever having to suffer a miscarriage but somehow y our loss has made me less afraid. Thank you for the reminder that your babies as all babies gone to soon are with the Lord.

  4. My sweet Michelle, so loving and caring. It is a very sad and difficult loss. My heart goes out to you. Your strength will be your family and friends, and of course our precious Lord. Sending many many prayers and lots of loving and caring thoughts. Blessings.

  5. Tears! And hugs. Because it is so my story. Our youngest is 12. I’ve had 3 miscarriages and no living children since him. Miscarriages are SO painful. Emotionally. It killed my desire to be pregnant. Although it could still happen…

  6. I have had three miscarriages. This last one we named Eternity to remind me that I’m partnering with God to bring souls into eternity. I may be blessed to hold them, but if not, the goal was still the same. It also helped me to think my babies are now together in Heaven. It is always hard, but God is merciful to walk through the pain with us.

  7. Michelle, you’re a blessed Woman. I feel like you sharing this life changing experience with us is adding to the Kingdom. While I don’t claim to understand all of Gods purposes for miscarriage, I choose to believe that it is a multidemensional one.

    I believe that the Father (in all of His Sovereignty)uses us women,as imperfect as we are to add something awesome to those precious, little souls. That which He adds must be something that He placed in only us when He made us. So He chooses that particular season in our life to add that precious baby and then returns that baby back to Himself .

    I guess what I’m getting at Michelle, is that your Lily and Ruth have portions of you inside of them. Those 11 weeks were for a great purpose. God placed your treasures in heaven.

    Be encouraged Michelle.

  8. I love your blog and all the photos. this is what I needed to open my eyes that we don’t need a huge house for our 5 kids and hopefully more :) I am so very sorry you didn’t get to meet those little ones here on earth, but I know you will get to in heaven. God bless you and your family, you all are in my prayers.
