Thanks for this wonderful sticky - you have put together everything anyone could ask to know about this!
I misscarried last week at 11 weeks, my first time and as for everyone else who has to go through this - it was devastating!
I do want to point out though, have read it before and was told by my doctor - up to every third pregnancy ends in miscarriage. I've heard the number 30% before my doctor told me last week and then he said every third pregnancy, so that's 30-33%. Maybe there are different ways to calculate these statistics, and if chemical pregnancies are part of the statisitics, the number is more than likely to be around 30% I think. The number amazes me but I also know that Im not alone experiencing this painful loss.
My grandma who is 90 and have had her share of life said to my sister when she found out about my miscarriage "well, the saying is that it takes a miscarriage to become a pregnancy". This might sound weird to some, but I know what she means by saying that.

What she tried to say was that many many many of us will experience loss, as well as birth.

Hi Sadkat, It is terrible that you have had so much loss in your life and am truly sorry, Just wanted to say that St Mary's is meant to be very good, one of the doctors there, Lesley Regan, wrote a book that I have been reading and it sounds like you'll be in the best hands possible, good luck hx

Reading this has just been rather sobering after a crap day.

Wow - that was the most comprehensive account on the subject that I have ever read. I've had a termination due to an abnormality with my baby and at least three miscarriages to my knowledge and it's hard. My last miscarriage was at 5 weeks and was expected cos I was using a clearblue digital test kit (not available in the USA I think but we have them in the UK and they tell you how far along you are for the first few weeks) and my hCG levels weren't rising. That was four weeks ago and my levels should be back to zero but I've just taken a test and it was positive! Don't know what to make of it cos we were using protection... but then we were using protection last time too! Can't wait to speak to my nurse tomorrow so at least I know what's going on - I think I'll be having a D & C to remove left over stuff and I'm dreading it but this article has made me feel a little better in some respects because at least someone out there has put their neck on the line and told it how it is!
