Lots of fear for tomorrow's appointment

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

My first U/S and appointment are tomorrow & I alternate between dreading and being hopeful. We've already lost 2 pregnancies due to blighted ovum and I am hyper paranoid that this is what is going on this time too. I still have pregnancy symptoms (sore breasts, MS. exhausted all the time) but I keep thinking I had that with the other pregnancies too. I don't know if you ever "get over" miscarriages. We discovered ours at 14 weeks and 7.6 weeks during the u/s.   I'm having a hard time sleeping at night due to either anxiety or my 2.5 year old wanting to chat:)

 

 

I feel a little better just getting it off my chest. Praying for a healthy little baby and a mama that seems a bit more sane in the morning. I hope I get to come back tomorrow with a thrilling update!!

good luck tomorrow! I hope you are able to relax after this appointment ..

 

I had a Blighted ovum in 2007 diagnosed at nearly 11 weeks, I get the paranoia.. I have been far sicker with my healthy pregnancies but i still had tons of symptoms with the BO, so i can't help but get really paranoid until i hear a HB..

I had a blighted ovum in 2005, but this time around we saw a HB at 8 weeks. joy.gif I definitely know the feeling. I didn't have to wait as long, but I kept wondering was I going to go through the same thing all over again. I hope you get the same good news we got. Sending hugs and relaxing vibes!

I am going through the exact same thing. I've had two losses this year, at 6 weeks and 5 weeks. Now I'm at 8 weeks, and on Monday I had spotting and went in for an ultrasound... the baby was smaller than expected and too small to see a heartbeat. I have another ultrasound scheduled for this coming Monday, and I can't wait for it... I just want to know if the baby grew. Either it's okay, or it's not... I need to know. I still feel pregnant and am not bleeding, so I have hope. But it's really hard to ignore the possibility of it going the same way the last ones did. SO HARD to stay positive. Let's keep trying though.

 

I hope you got good news and that I will too!

Still no heartbeat... the baby may have grown slightly, but the gestational sac did not. They can't say for sure though that the baby is not hanging on, so I have yet another ultrasound scheduled for next Monday. This past week has been so hard, it felt like a month of waiting... the next week is going to be tough.

Any updates, Graysmommy.

Laurilj, Wishing the best for you smile.gif let us know how it goes. I know this week of waiting is going to kill you. How far along are you?

8 weeks 5 days. I got my bloodwork results which say my progesterone is falling, and the doctor said she's pretty sure my pregnancy is not viable. They are still making me stay on progesterone and I have to go for that ultrasound, but since my pregnancy symptoms have pretty much disappeared, I know it's over. 

 

I hope everyone here has wonderful pregnancies, including you Gray's Mommy!

I am so very sorry!! That is exactly what happened with my 2nd loss. It just stinks! I will keep your family in my prayers for peace.

 

On the other side of the coin, we have a healthy baby and measuring right on time.

Thank you. I'm so so glad to hear that your appointment went well! I was worried about you!

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I also need some assurance... Had a couple of spotting episodes, including a full-on bleeding episode that landed me in the ER almost 2 weeks ago. We saw the heartbeat then, and baby measured right on time at 7w5d, but the U/S showed "blood around the baby." The ER doc said this was pretty common and, while slightly increases the chance of a miscarriage, is usually harmless and goes away on its own. He seemed fairly unconcerned, but of course I went into panic mode. I have a follow-up U/S tomorrow and was just starting to relax about it this week when I had some pink and light brown spotting yesterday, as well as a few teeny, tiny red clots. Ugh, now I'm freaking out again. greensad.gif

Sorry about all the worrying you're going through! I've never experienced anything quite like that, but I do know that a lot of mamas have bleeding through the duration of their pregnancies and they have perfectly fine babies. I can totally understand how it would keep you on edge though. Your appointment will be here before you know it and hopefully everything will be totally fine.

joy.gif Ultrasound went great! No sign of the bleeding from before--doc said it should be smooth sailing now. I'm so relieved!

Great news!  That must be a huge relief.
