I actually have been having so many braxton hicks lately and went into my normal 21w check up today and told my midwife. She is running a few tests but has started me on antibiotics because she thinks I have a bladder infection. She said that's the number one cause of preterm labor so she wants me to call in if they happen more then four tines an hour but she said its early signs of infection so hoping we caught it in time. A little scared but trying to be positive.

Of course I don't mind you following and keeping up with me it really helps to have people willing to listen to my concerns and sharing good news. My midwife called and said I not only have a uti but have a very very colonized case of group b strep. I am on a very high dose of antibiotics because I am more high risk than any other women having had preterm labor before. I will be on these antibiotics for seven days and then ass necessary throughout the rest of the pregnancy as needed and of course while I'm in labor. I have been researching and I have to have at least four hours of iv meds before giving birth and that has me very worried because my labors are very quick. When I had my third child I was only in labor at hospital for two hours and for the first hour and a half they had Mr walking around because my labor is never typical. I don't contract the way normal women do my contractions are never regular they can be 7 mins apart then 2 mins apart and then 5 mins apart they are always random and don't follow the normal labor pattern. And I feel this one will be quick as well because this will be the third time in less than two years that I have gone into labor and it seems to go faster and faster each time. I think I might ask her if I can take oral antibiotics when I'm 35+ weeks because I also never make it to my due date I always go between 37-38 weeks and am afraid what if I don't have time to get the full iv dose. There are so many complications that can happen if baby gets infected. I will be devestated to go the full term and then baby get sick and possibly pass away. My husband is actually sharing my feelings with this which is really strange because he is such an introvert he never expresses his emotions but he has been crying for the loss of our son a lot lately. In the beginning he didn't want to ever even talk about it and now he has started finally letting it out. He calls me serveral times a day from work to see how his Lil girl is and he gets emotional thinking he don't know what he will do if we lose her to. I'm trying to take it day by day and am so greatful every time o feel her move because I know at least at this time she is okay!! Thanks for checking up on me and letting me get this all out it means a lot!! Hugs

hun. Has anyone explained to you that if you can't have the four hours of IV antibiotics then they will just give baby antibiotics as a precautionary measure? That's what happens when you're a known strep b carrier. So please don't worry about baby passing away due to it

I guess i can relate to you guys more than with other pregnant women because you guys understand what its like to lose a baby further along. Are there any other women pregnant now after a second trimester loss, or those who have have babies after the loss really need some words of comfort and success stories for hope and to know if the guilt i feel is normal any responses would be greatly appreciated
Hello i can totally relate to your post. Congratulations on your new pregnancy There IS hope after loss and you WILL get through this. I lost my little boy jacob at 20+5 (told there was no heartbeat at the 20 wk scan) and my world literally fell apart. I gave birth to beautiful boy two days later and after his funeral i knew that i needed to have another baby because i just felt too empty. After we got all the test results back we were able to try again and 5 months later i found out i was pregnant. Like you i went through every single emotion including guilt. I especially felt guilty when i found out i was having another boy, i didnt want jacob to think it was being replaced. Im not going to lie my pregnancy was a nightmare. I lived in a state of panic for 9 months thinking i was gonna go to a scan and my baby had died but im am a natural worrier. I then developed a complication at about 28 weeks where i made too much fluid and was told that something might be wrong with the baby. I had scan after scan, was absolutely massive but at 38 weeks i was induced and my perfect little baby was here i couldnt believe it. Hes a true blessing and is absolutely adored. Sorry ive gone on! My advice to you is try to relax and dont be too hard on yourself. Guilt is a natural feeling but you are not trying to replace your little fella, he will always be with you. Wishing you a very happy and healthy pregnancy xx

p.s. Just read the replies and can see you have found out you are having a little girl massive congrats

Personally I haven't had a second tri loss however my SIL and a good friend both had an ethical loss after 20 wk scans and two more friends with mmc at 16wks and 20wks. 3 of the four have since gone on to have two more children each with healthy pgs and outcomes and the 4th is now 20wks pg. You are going to be cautious and anxious which is totally normally but you have every right to enjoy this pregnancy and to believe all will be well. Best wishes Hun xxx

Thank you for all your replies hearing success stories is definitely a big help with easing my worries. I had a fall over the weekend and went straight to the labor ward thankfully everything was fine. I was having lots of pains but my cervix is complete and no signs of thinning. I was so relieved. The days seem to be dragging. Just wishing everything will be OK taking it on day at a time. I find myself poking and prodding my stomach if I haven't felt her move which thankfully she moves a lot so haven't had to do it much since she has been pretty active. It is just a time of mixed emotions having the guilt and then also trying to be excited for her. I started buying cloths and a stroller and even a bassinet it was all on clearance and just too cute and cheap to pass up. Then I think oh god is she doesn't make it I have all these things but trying to be positive. Thanks for all your support.

I am SO happy everything is ok.. It's so hard not to be excited, meanwhile you have so much fear.. I remember when I was like 8 weeks pregnant with Ava I would just walk around in shock I was pregnant at 40 but also I was just smiling constantly. I was so happy.. I am glad you are getting on with things, your post seems more positive.. XO

Thanks Andrea! Tomorrow is the 24w mark and I can't believe I'm here . it brings me a little bit of hope knowing at least if I go into preterm labor she has atleast a chance to fight. Taking it day by day has seemed to help a lot. I try not to worry as much and feeling her move is reassuring. Two of my cousins had babies last week and surprisingly I wasn't upset like I thought I would be I was actually very happy and excited for them. If it had been a few months ago it would have been completely different. I could barely stand to see or hear a newborn so I know things are moving in the right direction of my healing process.
