March/April Spring Rainbows


Hi everyone. Wanted to start a thread for those of us expecting our rainbow baby in March or April. Let's introduce ourselves, share our story and give each other support/encouragement as we go through all of the stages of pregnancy.

A little about me. I have a healthy 4 year old DD who was born at 37 weeks with no issues. Fast forward to my second pregnancy last year, found out I was expecting twins, I was nervous but excited. Everything seemed to be going great until it wasn't. At 20 weeks I found out my cervix was completely effaced. They don't do a cervical stitch in the event of twins. I ended up being dilated to a 3 and going in to labor at 21 weeks. My beautiful babies were born. They were perfect, but it was just too soon. They aren't really sure if I have a true incompetent cervix or if it was just a "twin thing". I will be high risk this pregnancy and will have a cerclage placed at 12 weeks.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your twins. I've had 4 losses and as early as they were it was awful. I can't imagine losing them later. Although I'm a NICU nurse and have witnessed this nightmare many times.
This is pregnancy #5. Still waiting for my rainbow baby. I'm 43 so this is likely my last chance. I'm 6 weeks today. Due March 24. First ultrasound is next Wednesday. Praying they find a HB.
Baby dust sent your way!

Welcome. I've been a little reluctant to post on here because I'm nervous about everything and having another loss, but we are pregnant right now so why not talk about it and share the experience. I am so sorry for your losses and I'm hoping your scan goes well. How are you feeling?

I have my first scan on Tuesday so for now I'm focusing on that.

I know. I've been afraid to join a group because I was worried I'd jinx it!
I'm feeling nervous. My only real symptoms have been breast tenderness and constipation. My constipation lessened a few days ago and my breast tenderness started letting up yesterday. I'm cramping some now but I haven't really cramped until now. Just praying they find a HB Wednesday. Idk if I can handle a 5th loss.
How are you feeling?

Hi ladies. So so sorry to hear of your losses I had a MMC in Feb/March this year. It would have been our first baby but unfortunately we just found an empty sac at 10 weeks. 4/5 cycles later I'm now 4+2 and EDD is 6th April (although I od 3/4 days late so thinking it'll be later) I was petrified of never getting pregnant again so despite the MMC I'm feeling ok. Not exactly bouncing of the walls with excitement like last time but I'm not freaking out yet. We've booked an early scan at 7+2 as we just want to know there's something there this time - fx. Only 3 weeks to go.

Hi Mrs Unicorn. Congrats on your pregnancy!! So very sorry about your mmc. My first 2 pregnancies were mmc's and now I can't stop worrying. My first scan is in 4 days. It feels forever away. FX'd we all get rainbow babies.

Thank you and good luck with your scan. Try to keep yourself super busy over the next few days, hopefully they'll fly by, then you can breathe a sigh of relief. How many weeks will you be, almost 7? Am I right in thinking it's not always possible to see a heartbeat that early? I'd love to at ours but I'll honestly be happy seeing a blob on the screen!! Plus as I mentioned before, because I od late I'm thinking even though I'll be 7+2, in reality it could be more like 6+4/5.

I'll be 6+5. My RE does all scans between week 6-7 and there should be a HB if dates are correct. Heart starts beating between week 5 and 6. My 3rd pregnancy I had a great HB at 6+3. So you should see a HB at your scan. GL!

Oh my days, really?!?! I didn't know that, I thought it was more like 8 weeks. That's exciting, but I'll try not to think about it! Can't wait to hear about yours! Xx

Hey all I would like to join! I've have 1 pregnancy that they consider a chemical pregnancy even though I had missed my period which happened on Feb 13th, 2015. I had a second miscarriage this year on Feb 11th. We were almost 8 weeks along. My EDD is 3/29/17. My doctor wants me to do an early scan but I'm pretty scared and I'm going to try to let it grow as much as possible before I schedule anything. My doctor has been checking my HCG levels this last week and the last one she did was 104 on Wednesday. I'm very cautiously optimistic about this pregnancy. My DH acts like it's not really happening yet. Anyone else having that issue?
