A little about me:
DH and I have been very blessed and have a lovely large family. After several years of NTNP without any additions to our family we thought we were done, then we were surprised with twins in 2014. Sadly, we MMC 1 of our twinnies at 11 weeks. We were very heartbroken for our youngest DD (twinless twin) and decided we would like to try again as soon as possible so that she'd have a sibling close in age. Once she was born af returned at 2 months PP. So In January of 2015 we actively began TTC. After 8 months we finally got our bfp only to have another MMC at 9 weeks. We did send our LO off for testing, only to be told everything was 'normal'. We've had 2 more MC's since. Loads of tests...all of which came back 'normal'.
We are so ecstatic to be pregnant again and pray that more than anything we'll be able to bring our rainbow baby home and gift our DD a sibling close in age to grow up with.
I'm looking forward to sharing this journey with you all!
Afm: I'm hopefully expecting my rainbow baby, this being my 4th pregnancy, sadly losing my 3rd pregnancy at 8 weeks this March. I'm just over 5 weeks now and due 1st February. I've also started to feel nauseous 😕 It's reassuring but I'm dreading getting hyperemesis again.
I've had such a busy week, so sorry for not keeping in touch in the previous thread, but welcome to the new ladies, wishing you all a happy and healthy 9 months x
I'm very sorry for your recent loss
I've had HG with my previous successful pregnancies, so far the nausea isn't too bad this time, but I have lost a few pounds already.
How are you feeling as you near that 8 week mark?
I'm jumping over from the other thread. My minion back story: I have 3 children youngest is 6(7 in December). Dh and I have been trying to conceive #4 since Dec 2012. We've had 6 back to back losses and absolutely no explanations as to why this has happened. Our last mc was in March 2015 after trying an (unnecessary) iui in which we possible were pregnant with multiples. We took over a year off and begin ttc in May 2016. We fell pregnant straight away and are getting through this pregnancy on faith. I take some supplements but that's it nothing extra. I'm thinking of going back to my acupuncturist. I will not be getting any betas or early scans. Also we are going to skip the early scan and testing as it won't sway any decisions for us. We plan on getting a scan at approx 20 -24 weeks and will reveal the pregnancy when it's impossible to hide. We are due February 3rd and in happy to wait it out with you guys!
I have one son who turned 1 in January He was born 4 months early and is my miracle child as he has no long term effects other than needing glasses!
After he turned 1, my baby clock started ticking again and I had my Mirena IUD removed on Feb 18th. We were blessed to fall pregnant right away (I got my BFP March 14th), but sadly we miscarried on March 24th @ 5 weeks.
I have had 2 previous miscarriages but they were at both after my 12 week appointment (one was a MMC that turned out we had lost the baby at 8.5 weeks) and they were both with my ex husband, so I was upset that this happened with my current husband
We decided to try right away as our doctor said that our body just might not have been ready coming straight off of the birth control. We were blessed and received our 2nd BFP straight away on April 21st. I thought, "surely this won't happen two cycles in a row". And it did, we miscarried early again at 5.5 weeks on May 3rd.
This time, my doctor told us to take a break so we went on vacation to California to visit family. We got back Tuesday, May 31st and I realized my period was late. I took a test on Wednesday, June 1st and there it was, my 3rd BFP in 3 cycles.
We're very excited but also cautious. We haven't told anyone, not even our doctor. I am taking a low dose of baby aspirin this go around and staying healthy with my diet and walks with my son. It is all in God's timing not ours so whatever happens, happens. But we are praying that this is the baby we get to take home
Ive also been reading up on Raspberry Leaf tea and was wondering if it was safe to take or drink during first tri, or only when TTC. It supposedly aids in uterine health and can help with increasing the thickness of your uterine lining and with all of these Mc's, I want all the help with my uterus that I can get! Have any of you taken this? I just bought it in pill form.
Hi ladies,wondered if I could join this thread as well? Am cautiously pregnant again after having 2 miscarriages in the past year. Bizarrely the due date for this pregnancy is exactly a year since my second miscarriage which happened just after my 40th birthday. Anyway, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that everything works out with this pregnancy. It's hard to stay positive sometimes though after everything that has happened. Look forward to getting to know you all better and let's hope we all have smooth straightforward pregnancies x
