I am not actually pregnant but I suffered a missed miscarriage with a D&C on August 10th of this year. DH and I are planning to wait at least two cycles before trying again, but I have that nagging fear that we all do after losing a baby. I have been on this message board since getting the bad news at that first u/s in August. I was wondering if any of you would mind sharing success stories of pregnancy(s) after losing a baby. Our loss was our first pregnancy and it terrifies me that we'll never have a baby.
I'm sorry if this has been a thread before, but I'm just looking for a bit of a pick me up.
Thanks everyone, and I'm so sorry for all of your losses
So sorry for your loss
We started TTC in May and got a BFP first cycle. We were very excited, but I started bleeding a week later. After having several blood test my HCG was still rising so GP said all was good. Went for our first U/S 2 weeks later on the 2/8 and there was nothing there at all. GP thinks that I had a m/c somewhen during the 2 weeks.
So we just decided to go with the flow NTNP.. I went and had another blood test on the 17/8 which was HCG less than 2.
I started feeling sick and still no period a week later so decided to try POAS... and BFP.
Still early days, and taking each day as it comes. Just thought I'd share.
I had an m/c 2 years ago at 7-8 wks and am currently 13wks+3 (with two u/s that show baby is well!). We were, in fact, a month or so away from actually starting IVF and had had all the preliminary appts, blood tests, etc., when I became natually pregnant. I lost loads of weight, started metformin (for PCOS) and when my GP discovered I had an underactive thyroid, put me on a low dose to correct -- I got pregnant the next month. Although I am nervous about losing this baby, I'm taking it one day at a time, so hopefully....
Sorry for your loss.
I had a mmc at 10w4d in march this year ( we had heard heartbeat at 7w2d at private scan ) i had erpc after finding out about mmc. I found out i was pregnant again begining of august ( i am 7w today). I have been very worried so far this pregnancy, had early scan at 6w4d and saw heartbeat as was in pain and worried. I think i will relax more when i get past 11 weeks. Am booked in for private scan at 10w4d.
Try to relax and take it easy. Your body has been through a lot and you need time to deal with it.
I have two friends who have been through m/c and gone on to have healthy babies.
Hey I lost my first at 14 weeks end of Jan last year, found it very hard to get over, started trying in July again, got preg in august, and lost my second the end of sept, then we tried again after one cycle and I'm now overdue! fingers crossed for you! Don't give up trying!
So sorry for your loss hun. I had a MMC in October 2010 with our first pregnancy. We did the whole NTNP and ended up getting our BFP in February this year. It's been an anxious time throughout this pregnancy which I think most of us experience but I'm now 33 weeks and waiting to get to the end. It's a rollercoaster of emotions and we'll be mighty relieved once we can hold our LO in our arms because only then for us will this be 'real'. Stay positive, take it a day at a time and believe that miracles can happen. Sending sticky dust your way. Xx
So sorry for your loss hun. It took us about a year to get pregnant after our loss. We got to see and hear a heartbeat this time and baby is right on schedule. Last time the baby stopped growing at 5 weeksish and never had a heartbeat. There is hope!!
