Hello everyone. I feel like I might be able to finally post over here!<br><br>
We're 9w6d pregnant with baby #3 after 4 losses in the past 18 months. This is as far as we have gotten in all of that time - we had a blighted ovum 3/09, a loss diagnosed at 8w2d (but the fetal demise was probably around the 5th week) in July, a chemical in November, and a fetal demise dx'd at 7w5d (after seeing a hb) in January of this year. It's been a very long road.<br><br>
I've spent the past 6 weeks feeling very much like it would end in yet another miscarriage. Yesterday we had an ultrasound where we measured right on track, with a heartbeat, and a wiggly baby. I'm finally feeling like this just might happen.

Hello All,<br>
I am new here.... thinking that I might actually be staying <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I have been a wreck this time, after three losses since our youngest who will be 5 in August. I hadn't thought I would be this frantic about everything, I am usually a very go with all type of person, we homebirth and I am not a panic-er but here I am every day.... worrying.<br><br>
I haven't been able to relax, I have been diagnosed with a thyroid problem and it is controlling my every day. I am not feeling well at all and it seems that this might have been some of the reason for all of the mc's and the pre-term labor for my youngest, it just seems so unfair that they didn't even take me seriously until now.<br><br>
I am sending good wishes to all for this time, we all need happiness!<br>
Thanks for the love<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>

Welcome Monica!!! :heart....SO SO happy you are here on this thread. Glad everything is starting to feel real for you guys. We all know how that feels. Congrats and can't wait to hear about the newest member of your family!! And I think he/she should be born a week early ( due date the 28th of Nov., right?)...on my bday- the 21st <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Scorpios are great....lmao......<br><br>
Welcome Laura!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"> The worrying seems to come with PAL territory unfortunately. We've all gone through it at one time...or more. It's hard to relax sometimes. It sounds like things are more under control with your thyroid problem being diagnosed this time. Wishing you a long stay here!<br><br>
Yah JESS!! IT's MAY!!! You're next?!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><br><br>
And if it's MAY.......that means it's almost summer....and summer means baby for me!!! So impatient<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Monica, I'm so so happy to see you here!! I'm so glad that things are going so well, and am sending lots of <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/goodvibes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Goodvibes"> to your little one to keep on doing wonderfully!<br><br>
Laura, welcome! PAL is really hard, but I hope the next few months speed by for you and that soon you're holding your rainbow baby in your arms.<br><br>
Jess, you're so close!! It doesn't seem that long ago that you got your BFP! I'm so excited for you!<br><br>
AFM: I just completed a draft of my thesis, and I'm really happy that I'm so close to graduating. It'll be so nice not to have that stress anymore! Baby has been kicking more and more, and her kicks are getting stronger too! I love it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
I also got my blood clotting panel back. I know that most people do the blood tests BEFORE they get pregnant again, but my OB said I didn't need to, and then when I saw the peri at 15 weeks pregnant, he said that I DID need to get it done. So I was really worried that they'd find something, and it'd be too late to treat it properly. Well, my test came back, and everything was normal! What a relief!<br><br>
I need you ladies to talk some sense in to me, though. One of my numbers, it was for some kind of liver test (I forget the name), was 73. Normal is considered anything above 70. 73 is still normal, right? Even though it's so close to 70? My OB, my DH and my mum all said that there's nothing to worry about, but when I heard the number I was just a little taken aback! Logically I know that yes, normal is normal, but I wish it was just a bit higher so that I wouldn't even have to think about it!

<b>Jules</b> Numbers are such a PITA really! 73 I think is far enough from 70 and if your peri was okay, I'm sure that it's okay then. They would tell you, even knowing how you'd worry, but I really think that you are okay <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br><b>Amy</b> Just wanted to say I'm thinking of you, hoping that you're doing good in these last few days of your pg <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Wow...has it been that long?? I found out in May of '09 that I was expecting the little one that I lost (who would be having their 3-month birthday today...strange to think...). And I certainly didn't think that it would take this long for me to conceive after that loss. But here I am, and just glad to be pregnant again!<br><br>
Monica ~ Glad to see you over here...I was wondering when you'd head this way!<br><br>
Jess ~ You're due already?!? Wow...LOL...time DOES fly!

I wouldn't mind a week or so early. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> That'd make 3 Scorpios in the household! Still, you know I like to incubate 'em long (when I do, I guess), so we'll see. They'll be monitoring me very closely at the end because of Carter's size, my MTHFR, and possible gestational diabetes, so we'll see.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Thanks guys. Yes, this was actually our third good ultrasound and with the baby measuring on the right track and with 3 confirmed good heartbeats, I finally felt confident in coming over here. Still, it's tough. I'm kind of freaking out today because DH told everyone on Facebook yesterday. I was hoping to keep it under wraps for another month . . . or five.

Well I'm still pregnant...... Looks like we'll be having a May baby instead of an April one. Kind of a good thing though when I think about it. April was a really hard month... Well actually the past three Aprils have been crappy. April '08 I had a m/c, April '09 we lost Freja, and April '10 was our first anniversary of losing her. So I'm glad to be going into May now.<br><br>
Monica I wish you all the best with your pregnancy. I remember all the difficulties you've gone through in this past while..... Hang in there..... One day at a time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

So, I went to the chiro for the first time since I found out I was pregnant. My chiro is super sensitive to female bodies, I swear...like she'll be in the middle of an adjustment and say "Yeah...starting your period in the next couple of days, huh?" and I'm thinking to myself <b><i>how does she know that</i></b>?? Well, I went in today and she looked at me a little differently and said "Are you pregnant?" I was taken aback and said "Yeeeeeeessssss..."<br>
HER: "You're six weeks?"<br>
ME: "I'll be six weeks tomorrow."<br>
HER: nodding head..."I already know what the gender is, and I'm never wrong."<br>
ME: "Oh, really? Want to take a stab at it?"<br>
HER: "Oh, it's not a stab...I just know. I've literally NEVER been wrong." ME: "OK, so what is it?"<br>
HER: "You're going to have a little girl."<br>
ME: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jaw2"> I hope she's right!!<br>
Later in the conversation I was telling her how I'm pretty sure that the one that I lost was a boy, and she said that she agreed, but she'd not talked about it because she knew I wasn't doing really well.<br><br>
I have only told a handful of people, but it feels really good to tell those that we have...I've considered breaking our vow of silence a bit early...but I won't unless my husband is on board.

Monica and Laura, congratulations! I hope hope hope you're both able to stay!<br><br>
alternamama82, I hope this just means that May is going to be a fabulous month for you and your family from here on in. Good luck!<br><br>
I've kinda been forced into an any-day-now mentality with Baby Girls' heart whatever it is. I hadn't planned on doing this for at least another month! I've got my bags packed, just in case, and I know that realistically any one of my bi-weekly checks could end up in a hospital stay or delivery. I'm just trying to keep a handle on things at home so that if someone else does have to step up and fill my shoes, everything will be ready.<br><br>
The one thing I'm really, really not liking is the anxiety. I've always gotten anxious this pregnancy when I haven't felt the baby move for a while, and now that I know she's got a heart issue, I get really, really worried. Luckily she's been more active than ever, but first thing in the morning I get freaked out and during random times of the day when that horrible thought pops in my head, "Crap! She hasn't moved for a while! C'mon, baby."<br><br>
As backwards as this sounds though, I'm feeling very confident with my doctor and I do feel like things should work out just fine. There's just those moments of doubt that get to me!

It's May already?! It's weird how time can more in multiple ways. Life is moving so darn fast, I can't believe it, and yet this pregnancy is going soooo slowly! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"><br><br>
Could I be added to the Dec list? EDD is December 3rd.<br><br>
Wow, <b>Starshine</b>, what a cool story - and chiro!<br><br><b>Jules</b> - Congrats on your thesis draft! That's a huge deal.<br><br>
Hey <b>Monica</b>, So happy to hear things are going well!<br><br>
