I am so sorry dear. I just want you to remind something that most probably your doctor had already told "If there is a miscarriage, it is usually because the baby is not healthy" and although it hurts like hell, maybe this is better. I always believe that even when things look so bad, so unjust, there is something good in them that we just don't know. I believe in God and I cannot imagine God's trying to hurt us just for fun. Instead God is protecting us from the worse. Most of us must accept that our marriages suck and although we survive somehow our children are the ones who pay the biggest price for that so maybe God wants to save another poor child from growing up in an unhappy home.

I lost my angel baby in February. I know exactly how you feel. We have already lost so much because of the affair. Why do we have to lose this, too? It feels like not only are humans against you (ie your WH) but also God. It's just not fair. My advice isto grieve. Don't stuff it. R was not going well for me before I got pregnant or after the miscarriage. I was emotionally abused and not allowed to grieve. I cried myself to sleep last night screaming I want my baby. Don't ever let anyone tell you to be thankful for what you do have and then make you feel bad because you are still sad. We aren't idiots. Yes, we know that we are lucky to have a roof over our head, food to eat, and even other children. But that doesn't make our angels any less important. It doesn't mean that our angels didn't matter.

I am so sorry! I am crying for you right now. There really couldn't be worse timing for the loss of a baby then in the middle of dealing with the after math of an affair. Please allow yourself all the time you need to grief. I have lost a baby too. If you need to talk please pm me.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your baby.
There are many here who have lost a precious angel baby and our hearts and thoughts are with you now.
Now is the time to take the greatest care of yourself. Time will heal this awful painful loss but you will never forget him or her.
Hugs, peace and strength to you.

I am so sorry. There are no words adequate to ease the pain. Just know that we are here to support you. God is with you and will be with you. Lightchaser was right, a miscarriage usually means something is wrong with the baby. This was not your fault in any way. IC could help you through grief counseling.

(((hugs))) I'm so sorry. A miscarriage is such a hidious loss of hope and potential all wrapped up together.
Imagine a ship trying to set sail while towing an anchor. Cutting free is not a gift to the anchor. You must release that burden, not because the anchor is worthy, but because the ship is.

Oh Tear...I am so sorry and my heart breaks for you. Sending you love and prayers.
I hope you find some comfort in the following.
A Mother's Prayer
In this time of loss I call upon my spirit within to guide me to my strength so that I may find peace and completion.
I will use this strength to demand of myself and others my need to grieve completely, for this will be my first step to healing.
During my time of grief I will seek guidance not only from my inner spirit but from loving persons who may offer wisdom and comfort.
I need to understand that the soul as well as the physical body needs healing and to pay attentio to this. I will learn to accept that the soul may never heal completely.
I will learn to live not in fear and once again see beauty in my world and purpose in my existence.
In spite of my new knowledge that things happen that cannot be controlled, I must call upon the places within me that tell me I do have control over much of my life and use this control to aid my healing.
Let me recognize the gift in my ability to conceive and carry life however briefly.
Let me take joy in my ability to love so deeply and desire to nurture a soul unbeknownst to me.
Let me find healing in the belief that this soul knew my love for it and that that love helped it to pass to another place.
Let me honor this short life not only with my love but in finding meaning in its existence.
Let me recognize this meaning in not only my ability to survive, but in my fullest appreciation of all the moments motherhood will bring me, along with my deeper compassion and sisterhood to other women who've experienced loss.
Let a part of this soul be reflected in the spirit of my future children, born or adopted, so that I may know it through them.
I will listen to and trust the place in my deepest heart that tells me I will once again be reunited with this soul and will fulfill the need to hold it in my arms.
I will help myself to feel comfort in the knowledge that there is a star in heaven that belongs to me.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I had a miscarriage shortly before exwh started his A. It still makes me sad but you will get through it. Allow yourself time to grieve. I got pregnant the next month after the miscarriage and I realize now that I never thoroughly healed. Give yourself time to completely heal.
