View Full Version : Pregnant after death of first and 2 x M/C
I joined this site today in the hope of chatting with new people.
I'm currently 11W 6D pregnant and I'm terrified.
I lost my first baby during birth to an extremely rare condition and had 2 miscarriages following him.
I am so scared! I've had 4 scans in 9 weeks!!
I have the Down's test tomorrow.
I have never been trough anything like that so don't have any advice I just wanted to offer some :hugs::hugs:
And wish you a smooth and sticky pregnancy/birth :babydust1::babydust1:
Have a look around the site, we have birth groups so you can talk to other people expecting in the same month as you, we also have a section to talk about your loss and get support from people who have been through it and the other hubbers go in and offer hugs.
Good luck with your pregnancy :hugs::hugs::babydust1::babydust1::babydust1:
Welcome to the site. I miscarried in November, but am off to my GP tomorrow to confirm my positive home pregnancy kit results. My calculations work out a late November baby!
I am also scared as I don't think I could go through it again.
Check out the 'Pregnancy' group above this group. I have just started posting my 'silly' questions again, and someone is always kind enough to reply!
I'll be honest and I don't hop into this section that often, as I can't get through it without my eyes welling up. In November last year I couldn't get out of it, and gee I do find inspiration by the ladies who cop a knock but get back up again.
Goodluck with your scan tomorrow:babydust1:
Hi vegemite....congrats on this pregnancy. I'm so incrediably sorry for your previous losses - how heartbreaking! It is understandable why you are so anxious and terrified.
I had two miscarriages before this pregnancy so I can understand where your head is at - as much as I can anyway.
All the best for tomorrow, please let us know how you get on. Sending you a million sticky vibes for this pregnancy!!!!
Congratulations on your pregnancy. Though sad for your losses :(
I can understand how you would be terrified, as I'm already that but not yet pregnant. Still waiting for the ok to TTC again.
Same as the others, sending you lots and lots of sticky vibes...
Hope all goes well tomorrow.
I'm so sorry to hear you lost you little boy :( I lost my first son at 39 weeks due to placenta insufficiency, which we didn't find out about until the autopsy so had no idea there was anything wrong with the pregnancy.
I can totally relate to how scared your feeling right now! With my second sons pregnancy I was a paranoid mess!! I had around 20 scans throughout the pregnancy and used to drive to the hospital in rears fearing I had lost him too and get a scan which would calm me down!
It's soo hard and I found it didn't end for me once he was born, I worried about sods like mad and needed to see him breathing all the time just to know he was ok.. I only stopped using his breathing monitor at about 17 months because he was getting in. and out of his cot (we took the side off) he is almost 2 and I wish I could still have it on him!
Good luck for your pregnancy I really hope all goes well for you and you get to take this bubba home :)
Stupid iPhone.. I meant *drove to the hospital in tears* and *we worried about SIDS*
I'm so sorry for your losses but how wonderful that you're pregnant again! :smiliedance:
I can understand your anxiety, this is my 5th pregnancy, hopefully our 2nd child!
For some reason I feel quite at peace this time (probably as we seem to have experienced it all - stillbirth, miscarriage and an ectopic)! I don't know why it's different for me this time as I was most definitely a stressed out lunatic the last 2 times!!
Good luck with your nuchal tomorrow and for the rest of your pregnancy! :babydust1:
Good luck tomorrow. :hugs:
Firstly congrats on your pregnancy, I understand how you feel well i did until nearly 4weeks ago. We lost a baby in 2008 @16+3weeks to a missed abortion, we tried for a year and then decided to give up and be happy with the 2 we had. Last Sept i was late and had all the signs we had been blessed with another baby,, The whole time up until the 16 week mark i stressed constantly that something would go wrong. 25weeks in to the pregnancy and im thinking surely i can put my gaurds down, @ 30 weeks i thought we was going into early labour only to be told my baby was gone and i suffered a placenta abruption... I couldnt believe it all was well with him the day before at the midwife check up, We are thinking of TTC when we are given the all clear from the Hosp, We dont intend to try and replace our baby but just to experience the joys of parenthood would be just so good. I wish you all the best with Bub and Hope your downs test went well:fingerscrossed:. Hugs Trish
