I just got the word that my sister had a miscarriage and lost her first baby. This really sucks, she was really looking forward to having the baby.
Could anyone explain to me what exactly a miscarriage is?

I think that a miscarriage is a catchall term for where the baby dies in the womb for any reason.

How far was she into the pregnancy?

So sorry to hear that.

Sometimes a miscarriage happens because the baby may have had birth defects or something terribly wrong and the body realizes this and basically terminates the pregnancy.

Other times it can be an early indicator that Mom might have something medical going on that doesn't allow the body to carry the baby to term...

There are so many reasons for miscarriage. BUT if this was her very first pregnancy it is VERY common for a woman to miscarry the first pregnancy.

Also, she is lucky, many women don't even know they are pregnant and have miscarried yet...sometimes it happens so early the woman just never even knew she was pregnant, obviously not your sisters case though.

I had one full term birth-resulting in my now 11 year old son-then a misscarriage-then another full term pregnancy resulting in my now 7 year old son...it is more common then one would think.

I'm sure she is suffering but her chances are very good she will end up pregnant again and carry to full term.

So sorry to hear that. I had a close friend who lost her 1 month old baby to SIDS yesterday. They are devestated.

It is not by any of the imagination easy, But yes it is common and for a variety of reasons sometimes even for no apparent reason at all.

My wife and I went through four in a row before we called it quits with the two we have.

She will recover and try again.

Very sorry to hear this.
Although my wife and I are verily OK in the conceptual bedroom department, my brother and his missus have tried everything in the book but to no avail. Very sad. Swings and roundabouts but who is better off. My life is now spent as the proud and over worked providor while my brother is enjoying cycling holidays and various other holidays in exotic countries.

Food for thought indeed.

Don't get her a puppy. Unfortunately, Women who have had a miscarriage will have separation anxiety for months to come, and you don't want to give her something that will remind her of her lost baby for years to come.. Get her flowers and give her kind words. My mom had a miscarriage, and the last thing she could've wanted was a puppy.

Someone once told me miscarriages often happen because something goes wrong in the development of the fetus, and in that case it is a good thing. I know many who have had such experiences (terrible, that's for sure) but have had healthy children later. Life 101, it isn't necessarily easy. Tell here to hang in there and try again. Good luck and peace of mind to her.

keepin' it real

Miscarriages can be because of mother problems, or fetus problems. It can be developmental, nutritional, or even result from trauma--> leading to other problems. I'm very sorry for her, but life goes on.

Everything happens for a reason as the old saying goes. Good or bad things happen for a reason, it was not the right time and you or "she" has to be positive about things and move forward.

Ditto, same philosophy here. Sorry for her loss but perhaps it was not meant to be at this time?

We have a friend where she was nine months pregnant and went in for a scheduled delivery. I took pictures of the the 'before' event (joy). The baby was born deceased, very unexpected. It was a horrible day. I also took pictures of the event 'after'. It was very sad to see our friend's face expressions comparing the 'before' and 'after'....joy turned into horror within hours. All captured on photojournalism images .

Very sorry to hear about your sister's miscarriage!
