Pregnant after a loss - Page 2

The one tiny spot of pink I had already in this pregnancy sent me into total crazy mode. Nothing could stop me. I have had spotting with all of my healthy pregnancies and have even had heavy bleeding with a good outcome but all of that means nothing when it happens the next time. I am sorry and I so understand. Hugs to you and no more spotting!

Holding space for those spotting <3

I had one overdue freak out. It was on the same day of pregnancy as I mc'd last. But I'm so grateful that today I'm past it! 5wk 5d today. I think it's funny how just that feels like a miracle. I know the closer I get to that 12wk mark the more relaxed I'll be. I feel like everything is still surreal.

How is everyone else?

I'm holding up okay. I've been listening to Tibetan mantras for 4+ hours a day plus doing yoga so that helps keep me calm. Definitely have my crazy moments though where I am desperate to know that everything is okay. 7 weeks 1 day

So I am feeling hopeful because I feel sooo much sicker than I did when I mc'd but I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired. And sick of being um... Constipated. I swear I am full of s$!t from the BFP to delivery. Hate it!

Been thinking of the strange parallels- I had a mc the August before I conceived DD#1 10 years ago- she was born in July. Just had a mc in August and now due next August...so this one should turn out okay, right?

I will breathe a little when I hear a heartbeat....

Isn't it amazing how things come full circle? My last miscarriage was in August and now I'm due in August!

On another note, has anyone else woken up one morning to the hello baby tummy? Seriously, 5 weeks yesterday and I woke up this morning to tummy showing! Obviously we weren't planning to tell people yet but tummy has other plans! Maybe it's a sign to stop the anxiety attacks!

I was supposed to have a gender scan a year ago this Thursday. instead we found out the day before, Jan 1, that our baby had stopped growing. It will be nice to get past the New Year! Glad the two of you are feeling better about things!

in the same vein of weird stuff.. My due date is one day different from my last pregnancy, 3 years ago.

Whoa...I have a weird coincidence too...the ultrasound for this baby is scheduled exactly ONE YEAR from the ultrasound last year in which I learned that my baby's heart wasn't beating.  Wasn't on purpose, that's what the doctor gave me.  

 

Praying for better results this time!!!

You ladies need to read Spirit Babies, I'm telling you! It's not a coincidence!!!

I've read it but it's been so long. Perhaps I'll have to read it again.

Failed the tp test today. greensad.gif And lots of low back pain all morning. And it's just so not normal for me not to be puking at this point. Feeling like the odds are not in my favor right now.

So sorry, hang in there...how far along?  Do you think you'll go to the doctor?

I own that book and started reading it after my first miscarriage but found it too fluffy for me in the wake of my raw pain so I never got very far.  However I'm in a better place now so maybe I'll give it another try.  :)  Might be great now.

So sorry to hear this. Sending positive healing vibes your way. Maybe it's not the worst.

My mmc baby was due the day I missed my period this month. Funny, the coincidences we find. Any loss is scarring, and the idea of a late loads is paralyzing. For me, a mmc ... feeling and "being" pregnant when you no longer are ... is such a betrayal by my own body. I'm distancing myself a lot this week, coming up on my appointment this next Weds (probably around 9wks, so after my mmc was found).

Well ladies, started bleeding yesterday.  It was just when I wiped but nothing on my liner so I thought, just maybe...  Well this morning, was heavier and it was dripping (sorry if TMI) so it's not looking good.  I actually feel different, as if I'm not pregnant.  Really sad and frustrated.  I just don't know if I want to try again right away.  Two losses in a row has really taken its toll on me.  I think I have to take a break and focus on getting myself where I want to be physically and mentally and then maybe try again over the summer?  Ugh...what a way to bring in the new year!

 

On another note, I am praying that 2014 is filled with healthy pregnancies and beautiful babies :)
