Hi guys, I found out a little more than a week ago I am pregnant again and due in April 2006. I say "again" as I had a miscarriage in May 2005 at what I thought was 9 weeks 2 days, but the baby had died at around 8.5 weeks and I found out I had had a missed miscarriage when I was having a normal dating scan. I guess I just wanted to make contact with others who miight be feeling the same - happy to be pregnant again but afraid to get too happy because we are worried about it happening again.......anyone else out there in the same position? I find myself examining how I am feeling all day...wondering if I have felt symptoms....wondering if there is a happy healthy little baby inside me or not.....I am 6 weeks today and I guess I will feel this way until I have a scan and find out if all is ok, and also feel better once I am past 9 weeks, and past 12.

I miscarried July 28 and here I am pregnant again...and freaking out..this is my 3rd pregnancy and I have no children. I'm on prometrium this time so I hope everything works out. I found out early this time...I'm only 4 weeks and 3 days! My AF would have been due yesterday and my levels as of Thursday were 110.6.

hey girls. There is a thread called "Signs of Pregnancy Gals" August BFP....I think most of us there have had a m/c. You should go to that thread and join us. I had a m/c in may 05 and I'm 5weeks and 4days today. I too am nervous. I did experience morning sickness for the first time today, so it makes me feel a little better about things as I didn't have it last time. I guess it should have been called noon sickness. Well. Congrats and God Bless. Come join us!!!

Hi - I just found out that I'm pregnant again (not sure how far along - it's been 8 weeks since my last period) but it took 4 weeks to get a positive test. My doctor put me on provera to jump start a period since we thought I wasn't ovulating. I took it all and now a week after finishing it, I find out that I'm pregnant. I'm really scared since I had a M/C in April. I'm so scared everytime I go to the bathroom that I will see blood - especially since I was taking this dangerous drug a couple of weeks ago. I would have never taken it if I had any inkling that I was pregnant. Any advice??

Katharine I guess I was six weeks on Friday...I had an ultrasound and my Dr. said I am measuring at six weeks. We are not exactly sure since I had a D&C on July 15th and have not had a period. I think every hour I am making sure my b___bs still hurt. I do not have many symptoms this time so it makes me very nervous. On the ultrasound they said everything looks normal but they didn't see a heartbeat yet. I am going back on Friday for another ultrasound. When is your scan? I felt better after I had mine but I will feel even better when we see the heartbeating. Good Luck and keep in touch. I am due April 21 you must be a day or two after me.

I am so glad there are other people in the same boat. I had a m/c at 6 weeks, and I'll just be 6 weeks in a couple of days. I found out really early--I am due April 26. I too fear seeing blood every time I go to the bathroom, and check to make sure my b___bs still hurt. I don't remember having symptoms last time, but now I have sore b___bs, am tired all the time and have to pee all the time. This morning I am feeling nauseous for the first time. Did any of you have symptoms that went away when you had your miscarriages, or did you not have any symptoms to begin with?

hi all, i also had an m/c in may (abt 8 wks but no heartbeat at 7 wks) . done a hpt and had a +ve last fri 26aug. had no other symptons except sore b___bs and a bit nausea only. hopefully, this will also not be a chemical preg (which i had one last yr) ... i think i'll be worried until go for u/s this wk...Karen, the last time for my m/c, the symptom i lost was only the sore b___bs....

Hi, i know how you all feel I had a miscarriage in January, I am now 19 1/2 weeks pregnant. And still get all stressed out i think it is something we will have to get used to and with time will start to feel a bit more confident. Good luck to you all and God Bless

I had three m/c's at 6, 10 and 12 weeks. I had my son, then had an ectopic pregnancy. Now I am pregnant again - yes it is very scary but faith keeps me going!!!

I know what you are all feeling because I feel the same way. I also had a mc in May at 6 weeks. I had one af on June 20 and then when it was time for next period I got a positive hpt. I am now 10 weeks, although I had a scan at 8 weeks and the tech said I was measuring at 7. That doesn't scare me though because the doctor told me it might differ by a couple of days. I was so happy to see and here the heartbeat. At first I didn't even want to look at the screen until the tech said "there's your baby" and my boyfriend was looking. I am still nervous and just pray to God that my next scan there will still be a growing baby with a heartbeat.

Hi Katharine-Goss it is so rea__suring to hear others in the same boat. I have a 4 year old and just had a miscarriage in March-10 weeks along. My dr. put me on Clomid and I got pregnant, first try! Now I'm 7 weeks along and taking progesterone to help sustain the pregnancy but I am also a nervous wreck. You're right, its so hard to get excited and happy when you try to put out of your head that your pregnant incase something happens. Halloween is my cut off for feeling a bit more safe. I'll be about 14 weeks then. Keep your head up! Does your dr. have you on anything to help with hormone levels to sustain the pregnancy?

I too had a mc in May 2005. I found out I was pg again this weak and my fear outweighed my joy. 6 days later I'm doing a lot better cause I know I HAVE to stay positive for our baby. BUT every morning I re-count how many more days until I pa__s my mc point. In my head I have to make it past Sept.16th and I have drs. appt on the 19th. When's your date? STAY FAITHFUL!!!

I'm 36 & miscarried back in Jan last year at 5 weeks & got prego again the end of June. I'm 13 weeks now and have been on progesterone. So far everything's going great but I'm still paranoid though. Best of luck to everyone!!!

I'm pregnant again after a m/c as well. I m/c April 9, I was 10.5 weeks but the baby stopped developing at 6 weeks. (It was the most physically painful thing I ever experince in my life, and the emotional pain was unbareable.) I'm now 9 weeks pregnant again and guess what? My due date is April 9th. How weriod is that? I don't really let myself get excited about this pregnany yet, I'm so scared that it will go bad too. However we went in at 6 weeks saw a heartbeat!!! I go back to the doctor on the 14 and after that appointment I'll relax a little. I'll relax alot more once I'm 14 or 15 weeks.

just wanted to let you know I know how you feel I had a mc at the begining of this year...I am now 18wks preg again and all is going well I just had a level 2 sono and it showed a healthy baby boy!! So just hang in there I had the mc at around 7 to 8 wks so when I pasted that point with this one I felt tons better!!...Good luck to all

 

Meghann - September 5

I'm right with you! had a m/c in may and am 9 wks pg now and due early april 06. I've been a nervous reck this time around. It helps me to remember that all I can do is take extra good care of myself and the rest is out of my hands. Just try to relax...the stress from worry isn't good for you or your baby! Easier said than done, i know. But there's nothing like a good book and a warm (not hot) bath, a ma__sage or a walk outside to calm your nerves. Best of luck to you!
