    Default 5 weeks preg, 7 misscarriages and terrified.

    Hi

    I am just looking for a bit of reassurance really. I just found out im pregnant, about 5 weeks, and i have had 5 misscarriages in the last 3 years, and 2 before i was pregnant with my daughter, so im stressing.

    I have had 3 pregnancies that got to about 5 or 6 weeks then i started bleeding, it just didnt stick, so thats is about the stage i am at now. I keep expecting to see spotting, and keep wanting to take another test just to make sure.

    The other 2 miscarriages were at 13 and 15 weeks, so i dont think i will calm down for a while.

    And yet another 2 i went in to get my 12 week ultra sound to fing the baby had stopped growing at about the 8 week mark, which was when the morning sickness went away.

    The doctors didnt look for a reason for repeated miscarriage, i got the youre fat so expect it talk.

    I have had a bit of an ache on the right side, a bit like cramps but not really, so that adds to the worry.

    I had bad morning sickness with my first daughter who is 5, it lasted all day and was awefull. Now i have it morning and evening and when it settles down i worry its the hormone levels dropping and ill miscarry.

    I know im being silly but i just cant stop worrying, i dont think i could go throuh another loss.

    I do tell my self that this one will stick, just to spite me, i was accepted to do a bachelor of education primary, due to start this year, and my luck is like that.

    Please tellme im not the only neurotic one around here.

    you don't sound neurotic at all, it's completely understandable that you're worried. I have my fingers crossed that bub sticks for you.

    Oh and I can't believe what a jerk the doctor was to you, I hope you can have someone more supportive involved in your care this time.

    Congrats Lonni I am 6 weeks 1 day and everyone around me has been miscarrying. I can't help but get caught up in the frenzy of nerves and paranoia either if it helps calm you even a little, most of last week I was feeling mild cramps and more often than not stabbing sorta pains in one side or the other. I was horrified but that stabbing has gone away again. My pregnant buddy has had morning sickness, all day every day so far ( she is about 20 weeks I think?) and with her last pregnancy she had MS right up to her due date- vomiting all hours of the day. I just started feeling a bit seedy during the day in the last few days but no vomiting at least.

    Congrats on your pregnancy!! Im sure everything is normal and you have a sticky! Stay happy -hug-

    You are so not alone!

    Just don't get overwhelmed looking too far ahead. Take it one day/week at a time.

    Regular scans might help your worries. My Dr allowed me to have scans at 6 weeks, 9 weeks and 12 weeks (at my own expense) to help lessen my anxiety.

    You have already had one beautiful baby so that is proof your body can do it!

    Hang in there!

    Congrats lonni, I am on edge too, my 2 m/c were awful, spent weeks in hospital an 3 operations. First doctor didn't want to know me after first op as she had 'fixed me up'. I think I'm in love with the 2nd as he was awesome. He's not sure but he thinks it might be an implantation failure for me, so being 4 weeks along now I'm stressing. Another friend lost 5 babies because she wasn't making enough blood to support her pregnancies, 4 doctors missed it, she now has a baby girl. Ask your ob/gyn to check this, it can't hurt.
    Sending all you ladies love n support

    Hi Lonni have you been tested for anticardiolipin? I have had 5 miscarriages and have never carried to full term and found out recently I have this after taking a test. I am taking a baby aspirin daily as advised and under supervision of my medical practitioners and I am now 26 weeks pregnant. I have never got passed 12 weeks before. It may be worth looking into. xo
