Hi ladies, I remember most of you from the TTC and expecting threads! I'm just thread crashing here because I have a question or two. How many of you took baby aspirin during your rainbow pregnancy? Did you take it the whole time, or for only part of the pregnancy? TIA.

Now mom to a boy born January 2010. 
Cautiously expecting Dec 2014!

I took baby aspirin through my entire pregnancy with my rainbow baby. Because I was having a scheduled c/s I stopped it about five days before. I've been taking it throughout this pregnancy too (I'm 10 weeks, 3 days). I plan to continue through the entire pregnancy.

You may have noticed my signature has changed. I couldn't find the hb yesterday or today after looking for a few hours three different times, with and without full bladder.

M Anna, with my rainbow baby I was almost 14 wks before I found the heartbeat. My doula tried at 13 wks and couldn't find it. I borrowed her Doppler and tried it at home every few days until I finally heard it.

M Anna - prayers to you mama. There were some weeks I couldn't find my rainbow's hb.. especially before 20 weeks. Fingers crossed that baby was just in a really good hiding spot. Are you planning on having an u/s?

(cross-posting from the expecting rainbows thread):

Sorry I'm late updating. I got in this afternoon for an ultrasound and to see the doctor. The baby had no heartbeat, as I had known. He died at 10 weeks, 6 days, probably on Friday (which put my due date back to December 27th where I had originally had it - not that it matters much now). There was nothing obviously wrong. He probably died from a blood clot, which is what we're thinking happened to the other little ones I lost. I'm waiting to deliver on my own which can take a few weeks. I need to see the doc once a week. At the end of three weeks if I have not yet delivered, I'll go in the hospital for a cytotec induction.

Yes, being able to take care of Catherine (who is still only 7 1/2 months) is very helpful and comforting. I think that because we weren't trying, hadn't planned on trying, and were seriously surprised to get pregnant, (and have a baby currently) it makes this miscarriage easier to bear. It doesn't mean I love the baby any less. We were very happy to be having another and I was heartbroken to realize he/she was gone, but still, it's not nearly as bad as the last two miscarriages were.

M Anna, I'm so sorry for your loss. My first 2 miscarriages were before I had any of my children and they were by far the hardest. I was so worried I'd never end up with any babies to love on. My miscarriage last year was sad, but yah not near as bad as my others. Take care of yourself, M Anna.

I have the diva cup- pros- reusable and doesn't dry you out like tampons. Cons-It does leak when it gets full on heavy days and can be a little messy to change. Like cloth diapers and pads I like the cost savings and not having to go out to get supplies.

Just to let you all know, I finally delivered Gabriel last night at 10:42 PM. The placenta didn't come out until about 2 AM and I was getting close to giving up and going to the ER. I was pretty dizzy from blood loss but I'm doing ok today. I've been in bed most of the day. No complications. He's beautiful and perfect. It was a 19 day wait.

Catherine has been such a lovely consolation. Just having to keep changing poopy diapers keeps me grounded and I can't help but be happy looking at her sweet little face.

M Anna - I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I hope you are doing ok.

How are all the little rainbows doing?

Simon is 4 months old now and he is already rolling over (been doing that since 3 months) and scooting on his belly across the floor! None of my other babies were doing this so early. I am still breast feeding and pumping but DH has had to give Simon a couple of ounces of baby formula when they ran out of pumped milk while I was at work.

Time flies doesn't it?!

Uriver sounds like a tear/fissure if it's painful - is there any bleeding?

Not sure what to suggest since you're not constipated so things like more fibre isn't going to help.

I'm feeling soo sick today, hope it's not a bug. Not managed to eat much at all which worries me that my milk will dry up, trying to drink water.

Doing well otherwise, took saffron to the zoo for the first time which she loved
