I have learned that when you had a miscarriage, you wouldn’t really feel extreme pain — very opposite from what we see in the movies and telenovelas. Most actresses could not walk and would shout at the top of their lungs because of the pain. In fact, in wanting to save the baby from unknown danger and harm, you could actually walk fast and bring yourself to the hospital. Yes, even by yourself. You would feel the stomach cramps after you have been admitted to the hospital.
Or maybe, my case was just too different. From my experience though, I felt contraction but I have managed to tolerate the pain and distract myself of happy thoughts. I imagined floating in the air with my three boys. Imagined giggling with them. And there would be no more pain.
I was also able to bring myself to the hospital.
* Last April 2013, I had missed abortion. Three years after, we have a new baby at the small house. Thank you, Lord, for this gift.
