The above website helped my whole family greatly. I have just had (2 days ago) a 19 week loss. I went through a medically induced labour at the hospital.
My husband and I looked at the pics and read the stories and our experience was pretty much the same. We also showed the pics to the kids before we showed them Ben and they were able to understand much better.

If you m/c very soon, I am sure you will have a different experience.
yes you may send me a link via messages here to see pics please or just put them in the message. I would be grateful for that.

going to check that website now. thanks for passing it on
Helen, so so sorry for your loss. I read your thread and updates right after your labor. wow. i do hope you heal quickly.

Aw, I'm so sorry you have to feel this way. I second taking the herbs asap. That way you can start to feel a little better physically and mentally.

Re: for those w miscarriage after 7 weeks

i didnt take them last night cause of several things (kids here, i came home to a new puppy, i was already feeling ill)
but I dreamt I was bleeding last night and think today is the day to start. I just had a good breakfast and will take something in 20 mins. my cervix is pretty short and soft and i had a tad bit of a plug come out last night.
Im still scared to start cramping cause I dont want to excessively bleed.

UPDATE: I didnt take anything cause my kids got sick. its just one thing after another here. and on top of that, i am still so nauseated and feeling crappy cause im also constipated from pregnancy hormones. I will just let you know when this ends. i am starting to have a feeling it might be like my 6 weeks miscarriage where I stop bleeding and a week later I pass tissue w out contractions or blood. it just fell out while peeing.

How are you feeling mama? I left the Facebook group, but thought I could still find you here. I went for my appointment today and uterus is empty. My body did it all on its own. Saturday had been the worst of it with heavy cramping and bleeding nausea and vomiting. Now just mild cramping and bleeding heavier than a normal period. My tests are still positive but fading more every day. My doctor wants 2 normal cycles before we try again.
