    Thank you. One week from today!
    Today we are 7 weeks on the dot (according to last scan) and no bleeding today . This is the exact day I lost my last one on dec 10th last year. So today is a milestone for me. The next milestone will be my 8 week and ultimately my 12 week. That’s when we found the fatal diagnosis with my son last January

    Hi there...... would I be ok to join. I’ve had 7 losses altogether 3 in a row before my son Leo then another 3 in a row I didn’t think it would happen twice. Things had been going great but now I’m concerned that my cervical length is slightly on the shorter side. Why is it in my nature to worry about every single thing :wacko:

    Mindy, good luck with your scan!

    Wantingagirl, welcome, hope everything goes well in this pregnancy. It's hard not to worry in our situations, after previous losses.

    Can you ask your doctor to check the cervical length?

    Hi I was wondering if I could join this group. Just a little history this is my 6th pregnancy. I have been fortunate to have my rainbow baby with my 5th pregnancy a beautiful headstrong 2 yo DD. I am currently almost 8 weeks... 8 weeks tomorrow... pregnant with what will hopefully be my 3rd live birth and 2nd take home baby.

    Welcome! this thread isn't as active as it once was but many of us who used to be on here quite a bit still pop in on occasion. I had several losses myself so I know well the anxiety that comes with being PARL. I've had 14 first tri losses, 1 second tri loss, and a stillbirth. We now know my miscarriages are either due to genetics but it's not 'officially' confirmed as I've never had genetic testing. We figured it was genetics because of process of elimination. We've checked into nearly everything else and aside from a clotting disorder that I'm treated for regularly now, nothing has shown up as a cause. My stillbirth was honest to goodness shitty bad luck and nothing we could have done would have changed the outcome of that. I also have 4 amazing miracle rainbow kids and they are true miracles because my doctors have said it's nearly impossible for me to have a successful pregnancy. My odds of a successful pregnancy WITH treatment are less than 10%. Without treatment, I will 100% miscarry by 10 weeks. It's unlikely I'll have another baby but given that we can't use traditional forms of birth control due to health issues and surgery isn't an option for DH and I can't have surgery for at least another year, we'll just have to see what happens.

    Long story short there and I hope I didn't scare you with it. I am not the norm when it comes to infertility. It's not been an easy road and it's not been easy accepting that we likely won't have more babies as we've both felt we'd have more than 4. But if I'd have given up at any point during the 14 years we have spent trying for a family, we wouldn't have the kids we have. And against immense odds, we have children. I believe whole heartedly in miracles because my kids are living breathing reminders that they can happen. I truly hope and believe that this is your sticky rainbow baby.

    Congratulations and wishing you a happy and healthy rest of your pregnancy!
