I searched all over the internet for reasons why I might have had my miscarriage. No where did I find the helpful bacterias – Mycoplasma hominis and ureaplasma urealyticum. I feel very lucky that my doctor tested me for it. I am not happy to have it, but at least now I know why then guessing why it might have been caused.
Here are some possible reasons why a miscarriage might happen:
  • chromosome problems in the embryo
  • abnormally shaped uterus
  • incompetent cervix
  • diabetes that may not be under control
  • mother’s hormones
  • smoking
  • drinking
  • drug use

You Who Never Arrived

You Who Never Arrived

Rainer Maria Rilke


You who never arrived
in my arms, Beloved, who were lost
from the start,
I don't even know what songs
would please you. I have given up trying
to recognize you in the surging wave of the next
moment. All the immense
images in me-- the far-off, deeply-felt landscape,
cities, towers, and bridges, and unsuspected
turns in the path,
and those powerful lands that were once
pulsing with the life of the gods-
all rise within me to mean
you, who forever elude me.

You, Beloved, who are all
the gardens I have ever gazed at,
longing. An open window
in a country house--, and you almost
stepped out, pensive, to meet me.
Streets that I chanced upon,--
you had just walked down them and vanished.
And sometimes, in a shop, the mirrors
were still dizzy with your presence and, startled,
gave back my too-sudden image. Who knows?
perhaps the same bird echoed through both of us
yesterday, seperate, in the evening...

Translated by Stephen Mitchell
