I had a miscarriage around 6-7 weeks back in july...I was devistated....I am now 12 weeks pregnant and everything seems to be going okay, but I go to the dr. today and I'm afraid that they wont be able to hear a heartbeat or that I'm going to have another m/c...I know I shouldn't get myself worked up but I'm just so nervous and I am always asking myself "is today gonna be the day I start bleeding"... has anyone been in the same situation as me, and if so, did everything turn out okay with you and your baby? Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

I had a blighted ovum which is a baby that never developed and I had no symptoms and didn't start to miscarry until after the ultrasound at 11 weeks which was the most devastating news of my life. I then waited to miscarry. That was in October. I am now 11 weeks pregnant and wait everyday to bleed even though I have had two ultrasounds which, to my suprise, not only found 1 heartbeat but two. YEAH. Sometimes things have a way of working out. Try to relax and keep in mind, ultimately you have no control over it. Just take good care of yourself and the rest will take care of itself. Good Luck

Congrats!! These feelings are totally normal. I just had my 4th miscarriage. You are right, it is completely devastating! With each pregnancy after the 1st one, I couldn't be at ease because of the fear. I'm so happy that things are going well for you! I think the greatest risk is early in pregnancy, so you can take a deep breath now I think. Of course, you always have to be careful and take care of yourself, but try not to worry! I know, easier said than done! Good luck at the doctor. Let us know how it goes!!

I know how you feel. I'm 7 weeks today and I'm scared to death that something will happen. Just have to trust that God knows what he's doing. He never gives us more than we can handle. I wish you nothing but the best! I'm sure everything will be great!

Arica, we lost two pregnancies and they were both problematic from the very beginning... now on our third at 21 weeks and things are looking good. A miscarriage around 6-7 weeks happens for a good reason, most likely a chromosomal anomaly. The pregnancy was most likely not viable. At 12 weeks you're at the doorstep of your second trimester, and the chances of miscarriage go dramatically down. Congratulations, I'm sure everything will go well.

I had a m/c last year as well, and until my 14th week with this one i woke up everyday - sometimes in the middle of the night - checking for any bleeding. And I'm still worried at 19 weeks. Your feelings are normal, but try to keep as calm as possible. I try different breathing methods to calm my self down and try to keep this a healthy pregnancy...rest when you need to and take great care of your self at all times and you will be fine. :o) Good luck at the Dr. today.

I had a m/c in Nov. at 7 weeks I started spotting and we found out that the baby stopped growing at 5 weeks. I am now 9 weeks and still very nervous but I have had 2 ultrasounds and everything looks great. Try not to worry! Best of luck to you all!

I had a miscarriage last April at around 7 weeks like you. I got pregnant again in June and tomorrow, or rather today, I'm having my baby at noon by c-section!! I kinda knew something was funny with the first but Idon't know how. Intuition I guess. I'm sure you and your baby will be just fine. Good luck.

I am in the same situtution as you are. I had a miscarred Oct 7 2004. I am now into my 13th week. For the past couple of weeks each cramped I ran to the bath room looking for blood even after my doctor did the ultrasound and comfirmed a healthly heartbeat and that the baby was strong and healthly. I cant wait to get into my second trimester, just try to relax and think post_tive. I have two friends that also had miscarries and went on to have healthly babies. One has a daughter and the other two daughters. Just keep praying and have faith. I am now starting to show and really excited to show off my belly. I am also always worrying that something is wrong my remedy is to pray. I fear now is stillbirth, but I will leave it all in God's hand. I now my baby is going to be find. I go to the doctor tomorrow I may find out what I am having. Wish me luck ladies and all the best to you and your precious gifts. EVERYTHING is going to be alright.

I am 12 weeks today and I am so right there with you. The anxiety of seeing a heartbeat is so overwhelming. I had a m/c last year and I have been so afraid to get pregnant again fearing the worst, but this one is different, just know it and it will be for you too. !!!!
