Pregnant 1 month after miscarriage

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
I miscarried exactly a month ago and had a blood test today and they confirmed that I am indeed pregnant again. Anyone else have this experience? I asked the nurse if its 100% a NEW pregnancy and not lingering HCG levels from the last one and she said it is.

I am EXCITED and NERVOUS at the same time!

Congrats!

Congratulations!

And yes, I did. Well, sorta the same. I got pregnant my first real cycle after I miscarried. So I lost the baby July 13thish, and got pregnant middle of August, so got the positive test the beginning of September. Sounds like you ovulated after miscarrying? I'm not sure if I did or not, but we didn't really try that month, I was still too numb.


Good luck!

Congratulations! Isn't it wonderful how forgiving your body can be? The same happened to me. I miscarried and a month later I found out I was pg again. And this one has stuck (I'm 17.5 weeks now)

I should add that having the miscarriage so close made me very, very cautious about getting too excited, so I know what you mean about being nervous. I hope this one sticks for you, too.

Congratulations! Back in 2002, I lost a baby at 8 weeks, had a period exactly 4 weeks later, then got pg again immediately. She's 5 years old now That pregnancy was a pretty anxious time for me until I got to 12 weeks and finally went in to see my midwife. Upon hearing her heartbeat, I burst into tears with joy.

I have no idea when I ovulated. I have not had a period since Feb. 2008 and only 3 more in the last 3 years!

Yup! He is now a happy, healthy, two-year-old. He was conceived about two weeks after my miscarriage.

Someone in the loss forum said they had heard [third-hand, anyone?] that women are more fertile after a miscarriage. I don't know if that's true or not, but an interesting thought....

Congrats!

I had the same experience as well. M/C on July 4, found out I was pregnant again the beginning of August. I am almost 19 weeks along now

(I took a pregnancy test 1.5 weeks after my M/C and it was negative, so my HCG levels were gone by then...)

I miscarried in early April and by the end of May we were expecting again. I'm 27 weeks now so obviously the baby stuck but it took a long long time before I felt confident about the pregnancy. The mamas in the Pregnancy after loss forum really held me up in the first few months.

I did the same thing. The only thing is.... apparently I was very fertile after my last miscarriage. It's twins! Apparently that's not that uncommon. I miscarried in June, bled off an on for 3 weeks, apparently ovulated at 5 weeks post miscarriage and got a pregnancy test at 7 weeks past miscarriage.

I did the same thing, but it took me forever to ovulate. I m/c beginning of july didn't o till Aug 6th. Got pg and am now 16 weeks.

Congrats!

I had it happen more than once...I miscarried in May at 8 weeks and found out that I had one in the uterus and one on my ovary was given methotrexate to reabsorb the one on my ovary. Wasn't told that it would affect me if I got pregnant again. Got pregnant with twins right away and miscarried at 8 weeks again because of the shot the babies hearts quit beating. Got pregnant again right away and miscarried at 8 weeks again. By then the shot had gotten out of my system and I found out I was pregnant again right away and she is now just over 2 years old. I never had a period in between any of these pregnancies they used the date of my previous miscarriage to date the pregnancy. If it weren't for the shot I may have carried to term the second time.

Good Luck and don't worry.

That was me! I miscarried January 4th last year and got pregnant again on the 20th. My baby is now almost 6 weeks old and healthy! Congrats on your new pregnancy!

It's happened to me twice. Both of my girls were conceived immediately after a miscarriage.

I had a miscarriage with D&C on November 4, 2006. My daughter was born July 31, 2007! So if you do the math, you will see that I got pregnant again without ever even getting another period. My pregnancy with my daughter was completely healthy and uneventful, although she did come a few weeks early.

Congratulations! I also got pregnant on the first cycle after my m/c. I went on to have a normal, low risk pregnancy and gave birth to a healthy 9 lb baby boy!

It's totally normal to be nervous. I hope that as the weeks go on you will feel more and more confident that this pregnancy will result in a healthy baby.

This happened to me too - he is 13 years old now

yep, my 3 kids were all conceived after miscarriages -anything from ovulating 2 weeks after to 3 months after.
