so nervous


Hello all. I am needing some moral support please. I have had three miscarriages (one at 12 weeks, two at 5 weeks). I just got a positive test after trying for the last year with no luck. I took chlomid for 6 months and they "cut me off" last month. This was my first month with not pills, and I got a positive. I had a bit of spotting last Friday and assumed it was my period, but it never came so I took a test. I am going to the doctor today for blood work and then going back again on Wednesday to make sure my levels are doubling. I am so nervous, but I am trying to think positive. Please send prayers my way and any words of wisdom. Thank you so much.

Iím in the same situation, recent positive after 3 losses (first 8 weeks, second 12 weeks and third was 6 weeks). Itís such a nerve wracking and scary time. Iím here if you need any support etc, since I know exactly what your going through!

Wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months xx

I’m in the same boat too - this is my fourth pregnancy too (3 losses all before 7 weeks) and I also got pregnant my first cycle after finishing clomid! I’m absolutely terrified too - and have spent most of this pregnancy so far convinced it’s already over! I think it’s normal to feel this way. I’m trying to enjoy it but it’s hard to find the balance between being excited and not wanting to get my hopes up, just incase!
I’m sending lots of good vibes your way - hopefully you will be monitored closely and get to see the little bean soon f you can have an early scan!

It is so hard! I try not to stress, because I know that's bad, but it's hard to think about anything else. Plus the bleeding last Friday really has me worried. Isn't that crazy about the clomid? I have heard of that before. I'm not sure if it was still in our system, or our bodies didn't like it. Who knows? Have you been to the doctor yet?

I’ve been to the doctor for unrelated stuff and mentioned I was pregnant but didnt really talk about it. I’ve been scanned at the epu three times already! Saw a heartbeat last time at 6+6 which was an amazing moment but hasn’t calmed me down at all. I’m barely having any symptoms which is what is making me really nervous - I just don’t feel pregnant!
Do you think yours was implantation bleeding? I’m sure mine was from the internal scan as it started the day after each time!
It is so hard not to worry - I’ve alrewdy downloaded and then deleted pregnancy apps on my phone about three times where I’m sure it’s all over! I’m trying not to think about it but then a little excitement creeps in and I start making plans in my head or thinking about something I want to do or buy, and then I panic thinking I’m jinxing myself or setting myself up for heartbreak!
It is so crazy about the clomid. I was so upset when it didn’t work, and we actually decided to give up and stop trying for a year! Lol! I have no idea why stopping it worked - if been reading about how after it takes a while to get cycles back to normal and was worried about that!
Have you told anyone yet? Or do you plan to?

This pregnancy has come straight after a miscarriage so I havenít had a period in between but if I class the miscarriage as my LMP Iíll be 5w3d (ish). I havenít had any scans or seen anyone yet.
Have you seen a midwife/dr yet? Any symptoms?

Im in the same boat. Not as many miscarriages (ive only had two in all of the 3+ years combined of TTC) but i just had one last month. I took femara this month and got pregnant again. I'm 5 weeks along and Im feeling good about it but cautious. Every time I've miscarried, I've found out 48 hrs after my BFP that I was going to miscarry. So, the fact I've made it a week is a giant step for me. I'll feel a little bit more secure after my first scan on Feb 5th

BeeBee- My last two have been the same. Within a day of taking a test, I began bleeding. I am grateful for each day, because I feel a little better. I am so happy that you have made it a week. That is a huge deal when you are in our boat.

Red_Head- I know! We had also decided to quit actively trying. No more pills, no more charting, etc. I have also read that many people get pregnant the month after stopping clomid. Who knows?

I went to the doctor yesterday for blood work. I am supposed to get the first results today, and then go back tomorrow to see if they double. I am a nervous wreck. LOL! I am having some symptoms which makes me nervous, because I have had some before and then ended up having really low levels of HCG, so maybe it was all in my head. Maybe it is all in my head now. I hate all of it. I remember my first two pregnancies. I was so excited from the first moment. I never thought anything bad would happen, so it was stress-free. Until I lost my second, and then third, and fourth. Now I am a mess. Trying to stay positive. A huge hug to all of you. I think it helps to be able to talk to others who are in the same position. Thanks for responding ladies

I know what you mean, some of it probaby is psychological because as soon as I get a positive I start feeling sick lol! But yes I completely agree itís not as enjoyable after losses as your constantly worrying etc.
All you can do is keep positive! Praying for us all definitely helps to speak to people who understand, thatís why I love this forum

Good luck for your results keep us updated x
