After 3 miscarriages in a year, and a full workup from my RE (including an operative hysteroscopy to remove polyps and fibroids), I am pregnant again. This is the first time I've been pregnant while under the care of an RE, so it's the first time I've gotten so much information - last three times, I never even made it to my OBGYN, as they wouldn't see me until at least six weeks and I never made it that far. So, this time I had three hcg betas the first week. The levels rose well. I'm on Crinone progesterone suppositories. There's no sign of trouble, really. I'm waiting until next week for my ultrasound appointment. I'm practically convinced that there's going to be nothing there.<br><br>
Anyone else in the same boat? Or have been there? How are you doing?!

I'm in the 2ww (after two miscarriages and no testing). I just wanted to wish you well! I hope everything goes great!

Yes....I think I know how you might be feeling!<br><br>
I had 1 m/c followed by DD followed by 3 more m/c's. All of my miscarriages were missed and not detected until the first ultrasounds where there simply was no embryo or one without a heartbeat. I finally had testing done and low and behold, I have multiple blood clotting issues. I started on a low molecular weight heparin (similar to lovenox) on the day I got my BFP. I am also taking oral progesterone. I had an ultrasound done yesterday and she did see what she was supposed to at almost 5 weeks. So, I am cautiously optimistic that the Innohep might be doing what it is supposed to. I will certainly be on pins and needles until my next ultrasound in 4 week.<br><br>
Best of luck to you,<br>

Thanks for your responses! It's helpful just to hear from women in similar positions. My other miscarriages happened early and naturally, so I feel good that nothing has happened so far and I'm as far as I've ever gotten. I'm hoping the fibroids really were the problem all along.<br><br>
By the time I have my ultrasound next week, I'll be 6.5 weeks, so I'm hoping we'll see a heartbeat and I can turn the worrying down a notch.<br><br>
It's so hard to enjoy being pregnant while constantly thinking you might miscarry! My husband and I decided we just have to enjoy it and approach it like a new situation or else we'll go nuts, but I'm still going kind of nuts anyway.<br><br>
Good luck to you, too!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'm only five weeks along, but I do understand that horrible feeling of not knowing.<br><br>
I had a missed mc (blighted ovum) at 12 weeks with my first pregnancy. Next pg was DS <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">. I conceived again last August, only to miscarry in late October at nearly 11 weeks. We didn't have an u/s for that one, but based on the severity of it, I'm quite sure it wasn't a blighted ovum. Last month was a chemical pregnancy.<br><br>
Based on prior experience, I simply cannot feel secure this early on. For this reason, I'm going to get an early (for me, anyway) u/s at 8 weeks (if I make it that far). I never had an u/s until I mc'd my first pg, and didn't have one until 12 weeks w/DS (and then only one other, at 19 wks). But this time, I think I need some earlier proof that things are going well in there.<br><br>
I'm glad to hear that you've gotten farther along than ever before! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> I'll be pulling for you, and hope to hear wonderful things after your 6.5 wk u/s.

Thanks, Susan. I hope things go well for you, too! Until next Wednesday, I'll just try to strike that balance between optimism and worry :/
