    Hi all. I thought we needed a place for women who are PAL after recurrent losses (PARL). I'm pregnant for my 5th time after 4 losses and am hopeful this one will stick. I just saw a heartbeat today, so am feeling cautiously optimistic enough to start a thread in here. Usually I just hide out in the Recurrent Miscarriage Thread. Please join us if you've had 2 or more recurrent losses. (Technically recurrent means 3 or more, but after a lot of debate on the RMC thread, most of us agree 2 is enough to join the club.) Let's turn these losses into our forever babies!

    ** If you want to be added to the front page, please PM me. People are added after a hb is detected.

    *** Once you graduate from this thread, please join us on the MARL thread http://babyandbump.momtastic.com/pa...after-recurrent-losses-marl-come-join-us.html

    Yep it's way past my bed time!! I'm on my way up now. Been in a bit of a state convincing myself it's all over for me because I've had no symptoms all day! So much so I'm high as a kite!! Just drinking some hot chocolate to calm my nerves and hopefully my tummy!

    My symptoms come and go, they did especially at 5 weeks. Try not to stress out too much. Easier said than done, I know! My MS just really started yesterday and today.

    Sweet dreams. xoxo

    Thanks sweetie. Everything I've read seems to say symptoms can definitely come and go!

    Nighty night xx

    Yay, love this thread. PAL after multiple losses is such a scary thing. It's a good idea to have a place for us all to vent.

    So this is my 5th pregnancy. I had a beautiful DD 5 years ago and have had 3 mc's since. I've had 4 u/s this pregnancy and so far so good. My doc tells me I can relax now, but I really don't feel comfortable yet.

    Yay Rounders! Relaxing is almost impossible in my opinion, no matter what the doctors say. But you have had some great scans recently. I'm so happy for you. What kind of symptoms do you have?

    heart tree - oh my goodness. I was thinking about you and how I hadn't seen you in such a while. Kept looking for that great pic of you looking out at the water and wondering how things were treating you.

    A big hug and congratulations! So happy to see you expecting! Wishing you nothing but happiness, a H&H journey and a beautiful forever baby.

    I know all too well how you are feeling. This is my fourth pregnancy and I am trying my best to stay positive and dreaming about this LO in my arms.

    Heart- how do I add a ticker? It tells me my sig can't be over 6 lines long - do I have to just erase all the words on it? Thank for starting this thread

    Hi honey, I've been secretly stalking you. I saw your announcement on the 35+ thread and then checked your journal and saw your good news from yesterday. I'm so happy for you too! I hope you keep posting here. We're a special group and need to stick together.

    I took a long break from the site a while ago after my 3rd loss. Then in July I got pregnant again and ended up having an ectopic and lost my right tube. I came back to the site after that because we decided to try IUI and I needed support from my girls. Well, it worked the first time, so here I am. When is your next scan?

    Yay, Hopeful, good to see you here twin mamma! Gosh, I'm in a good mood tonight. Guess seeing a hb will do that to a girl. :cloud9:

    Yes, you are going to have to erase some things, or not have as many spaces in between the things you have. It's kind of a pain.

    TBH, my symptoms this pregnancy have not been that plentiful. I had some MS around 7 weeks, it comes and goes still. But not as bad as my last few pregnancies. My boobs hurt alot in the begining, but hardly at all now.

    Wow, I just noticed you are only 6 weeks and you saw a heartbeat. That's amazing! So many people don't see a heartbeat this early. I think that's a really good sign.

    Round, you just brought tears to my eyes. That's what my doctor said too. That it was so early to see a hb and it was a good strong one too - 113bpm. I'm really excited.

    Yeah, my boobs have really hurt. Last night I thought I was going to cry when I took my bra off. I've had some MS that mainly started a couple days ago. It's pretty consistent. I'm starving, then I eat, then I feel awful for hours. Then I get starving again, and the cycle continues. I'll take it though.

    When is your next scan?

    Look at you with your little twin ticker! So cute!

    Yes, I stand corrected. I think a little miracle did happen in my life today.

    What symptoms are you feeling Hopeful? I didn't want to ask on the RMC thread.

    Hi mohini, I've seen you on the recurrent miscarriage thread. Are you pregnant now? This thread is specifically for women who are currently pregnant after recurrent losses. If you are pregnant again, then congrats and welcome. If you aren't, I think the RMC thread is better for you until you get your next BFP. Then we'd love to have you here!

    Hey girls :)

    First off, Congrats to everyone here :hugs: Hoping that I can join you lovely ladies. I am quite a bit farther along but im still very nervous. I have had two mmc's before catching with this lil girl, one at 16w and one at 6w. I still remember the rollercoaster ride of emotions during the first trimester and I totally feel for you gals. Its the most scary time. So scary that I didnt even tell anyone I was preganant till about 20 weeks, then I just told my mom. I have just told the ppl I work with and some friends in the past few weeks. I have actively hidden being pregnant out of fear of having to explain another loss. Mc's have a way of warping ya I guess. I wish everyone here a happy and healthy pregnancy and hopefully some reassurance that it does get a bit easier. Goodluck ladies. Looking forward to checking on you through the weeks :)

    Thanks Essie and wishing you the best, you don't have too long to go.

    Heart- you know what's crazy is yesterday at my scan the NP saw a 3rd sac, empty. She said she saw that one first and didn't say anything as she didn't want to scare me before finding the 2 little ones. She said my body would just absorb it. But my first scan on tues didn't show that sac and she looked all over so who knows.

    Was Tim at your appt?

    I am tired, hungry, pulling feelings, little cramps every once in a while, skin breaking out. I get so hungry and eat so fast that I don't feel good after as I get too full. I'm eating more sweets than I ever have. Which isn't a lot but something every day.
    I gained 2 lbs but am wearing a belly band as I don't like my jeans button to be tight but I think the band is tight too. I like loose fitting jeans. I'm still nervous after that prog suppos made my cervix bleed. I'm getting weird little muscle spasm in my way lower right side now, to the right of my pubic bone I guess? Anything freaks me out.
    Boobs are sore, really sore in the morning when I first get up then they get better.

    You think it all sounds normal? I also get out of breath really easy.
