Scared - November 21st, 2005 12:49 PM

I just found out that I'm 5 weeks pregnant, I've had two miscarriages, one at 5 weeks, and one at six weeks, I'm really scared!! I didn't have any morning sickness with my past miscarriages, and haven't had any with this pregnancy yet!!! I pee ALOT, and my br___t are really, really, sore. I don't seem to have any problem getting pregnant, they just don't seem to be healthy pregnancies.


Lashunda - November 21st, 2005 12:59 PM

Hi scared, I too had two m/c one at 7 weeks and one at 10 weeks. The latest one was this past july and now I am 51/2 weeks. I learned from my last that I should just enjoy this pregnancy as much as I can. I know it can be hard but there's a reason for everything. Did the doctors find out anything that was wrong? Today, I'm going in to see if I need to be on any medication. Well, if you want to talk, feel free. I'm on here almost all of the time and you can email me: misslovalova7@excite.com. Take care and relax : )

Hi Scared, I too have had two miscarriages, one at 6 weeks and the last in January at 10 1/2 weeks. I am newly pregnant as well, and my doctor has me taking a baby aspirin a day as well as Progesterone suppositories to help maintain this pregnancy. I am getting my levels checked every 3 days to make sure they are rising correctly. Just got back today for the second blood test - I am praying so hard that these levels look good. I will know something by this afternoon ( hopefully) good luck and like Lashunda said, just enjoy each minute of it. It's truly a blessing.

Hi Scared. Like you and the other two women, I too had two miscarriages and now 7 weeks pregnant. I'm there right with you when you say you are scared. You can only take one day at a time. Before, I was on this sight looking at the old threads (pregnancy and miscarriage) but I've found that I'm making myself more susceptible to worries. The other day I had a dream that I bled when I went to the bathroom and I think it's due to my nervousness and everything I'm reading. Take each day as it comes but be grateful for what you are carrying. I'm so sick with this pregnancy but everytime I curse about it, I'm trying to remember that it's a real baby forming! Congratulations to you and hope you can enjoy your pregnancy more and more each day.

Thank-you to all who responded. Sorry it took so long for me to write back, I was working.
To Lashunda, my latest m/c was in July as well. I too have tried very hard to not think about all the possibilities, just enjoy what's happening in the moment. The doctor didn't find anything specific wrong. He said that he believed both of my m/c's was a blighted ovum. Which I guess is where everything but the baby grows. I go for my 1st doctors appointment on Dec 2, right now I just trying to make it to my 1st appointment. I never did with my prior pregnancies.
To Becca D, I've heard about Progesterone but only online. I think that I'm going to ask my doctor to see if it's possible for me to take it. What did your doctor tell you about it?
Lastly for Kennedy, When did your morning sickness start? Like I said in my last writing I didn't have morning sickness with either of my pervious m/c. And no sign of any this time. I've also tried to not look at any negative.
Congratulations and good luck to all of you. Thank you for all your help and have lots of fun :)

Hello again, well, I guess that makes two of us. My real appt is on the 2nd as well and that's when they're gonna do the full on physical, inside and out so I'm anxious about it. I went to the docs today though and she just put me on baby asprin as well. I also have these other pills like for nausea and this vitamin b5 thing but I haven't taken those yet. Hopefully the baby asprin helps. I'm nauseated and its getting on my nerves. So since you don't have any, be grateful, its luck!! I didn't have any sickness on my last pregnancy so I think this one will be a girl, LOL. I hope everything turns out okay for all of us.

I've had 4 losses and am current;y almost 21 weeks - everything is healthy. Just keep in mind, what is - is. Every pregnancy is different and not all will end in mc.. Good luck!


Becca D - November 22nd, 2005 11:02 AM

Scared- My doctor just wanted to be "pro-active" for my next pregnancy. I've had two miscarriages, and he thinks it could be in part to low progesterone. I have a very short luteal phase, which in turn I have a low progesterone level around time AF is due. Well this time I started the progesterone the day he took my levels to see if I ovulated. (it's usually called a 21 day test) for me it was day 26. My level was at 4.6, which is extremely low, so he told me to stop the progesterone and start this other medication which would help my luteal phase defect. I decided to wait it out though and continue on with the suppositories until AF was due, then I'd test. To my surprise....BFP. My HCG levels were 64 and progesterone 20 the day AF was due...which was only 3 days after the first test. Well yesterday my HCG was at 361 and progesterone 28...so I believe the suppositories are really helping maintain this pregnancy!!! :) Good luck to you and Lashunda and everyone who is pregnant or trying!! :) Happy Thanksgiving!!!


jennbj - November 22nd, 2005 11:38 AM

Hi girls, First of all I want to tell all of you congratulations!!! I had 2 mcs, first in april and 2nd in oct. I just got my first af on sunday and am now going to ttc. I hope I will be joining all of you soon. I am almost scared to get pregnant again but I want to soooo bad. Please keep positive and like they say....3rd times the charm right? I will be praying for all of you to have a successful 9 months!!


Becca D - November 22nd, 2005 2:48 PM

Jennbj, I am sorry for your losses...I think the feelings you are having are completely normal. It's scary to be pregnant again, althought this is all I've wanted since the last miscarriage. 3rd time is a charm, right? Good luck to you and thank you for your well wishes!!!!

I too am pregnant again after 2 m/c. The last one was roughly 10 months ago. I am a bit sceptical about keeping this one so I am not sure whether to make a doctors appointment. I did the last 2 times and had to cancel both. I am only 5 wks now so thought to wait until I get closer to 7 wks. Should I start taking baby aspirin? It seems to be mentioned quite often. Any advice is welcome.. Thanks ladies!


pheonix - April 19th, 2010 12:48 PM

Dear Scared. I know exactly how you feel. I've had one miscarriage at around 5 weeks and am now alittle over 7 weeks pregnant again, without ever having entered into a new cycle after my miscarriage. I think you just have to leave it in the hands of the universe. Keep the faith. Remember, you are not alone. There are so many women experiencing the same thing. You CAN and WILL have a healthy pregnancy!....xox stay positive...
