I'm 14 years old and had a miscarriage 4 months ago

miscarriage 5 weeks

I'm 14 years old & 4 months ago I had a miscarriage. I was 5 weeks pregnant and I hadn't told anyone but my best friend. The father of my baby didn't know either & I didn't plan on telling him because I didn't think he would man up to it. Shortly before I had my miscarriage he had passed away. Today is exactly 4 months since he passed away. And I wish I would have told him...

Editor's comment

It's very sad that you were unable to tell the father, but I don't feel you should blame yourself as there's no way you could have known this would happen. Find your nearest miscarriage support.
