    Chest pains could have many causes. In your case, it could be stomach related. Talk your GP about your chest pain so they can rule out any forms of disease or abnormalities. Once thats done... Try taking some meds for the pain. Does it occcur with excersise??? Is it sharp? Burning? Is it in the upper abdomen? Since you lost your baby it could have a big impact on your body. But dont worry!!! It will heal over time!

    If you still are concerned about your symptoms... Try seeing a cardiologist, gastroenterologist or OBGYN.

    My darling, this is grief for your lost child.

    I, too, lost many babies and I know how emotionally painful it is.

    It has hardly been any time since your baby died.

    May I suggest something - you may not have known if the child was a boy or a girl, but use your intuition and name your baby.

    You're having chest pains because that is where your heart is, and your heart has had to let go of a baby.

    Of course you're stressed and panicky.

    Give your mind time to heal, Monique, and the chest pains will disappear. The whole thing is stress, my dear. Believe me, things will get better after a few months.

    My love to you,

    Chrissie. x

      Monique, it is always a tragedy when a baby dies. Did you have a general anaesthetic whilst you were in the hospital being treated - because that could cause the chest pains, too, as they have to put a tube down into your lungs.

      I don't think you need an ECG - you would have had one while in the hospital, so there's no reason to have a test done again, that you've already had.

      You will feel very sad and want to cry for quite a while yet. That is normal.

      I hope very much that nobody will think you're crazy, or be disappointed in you.

      50% of pregnancies end as miscarriages. It's nobody's fault, Monique.

      If you want to send me a PM, please do.

      Much love from Chrissie. x

    Oh, honey, I am so sorry for you.

    I agree with Chrissie that it is most probably grief for your little one, but I think you should get an ECG done just to be on the safe side.

    Take care of yourself, hugs to you.
