This pregnancy was a surprise for me too. I found it really hard to get excited to begin with because I just didn't believe that it would last. And it is really hard not to stress about every little twinge/pain/sensation. I was so anxious initially but as things progress I'm feeling more calm about it. Good results from each scan has helped. But I definitely still have moments when I freak out.
I can honestly say that I felt more nauseous and exhausted with the first pregnancy. I've been sick this time around too but not as bad and also related to undiagnosed gestational diabetes.
Sorry to hear of your losses.
my only mc was a mmc. That pregnancy was a complete surprise and I had a lot of trouble bonding to it from the beginning. I got ms but it wasn't as strong as my previous to term pregnancies. I wasn't very tired like I had been either.
I'm 25 wks now with another surprise, but after the mc I felt that I definitely did want one more child, or at least to try once more.
this pregnancy I was much more exhausted and a lot more sick, but I didn't really relax about things until after the 18 wk ultrasound.
i definitely feel that the pregnancy I lost was different. During the time I thought it was because it was so unexpected, but looking back I think I just knew something was up. I felt quite depressed during the pregnancy, especially the week the baby passed, and I didn't even know until 2.5 weeks later.
Wishing you all the best.
Babybear, hope this is your take home bubba!
This is my 4th pregnancy - mmc at 12.5wks, dd, mmc at 10wks now this bub which in nearly 18wks with. I'm one of the unlucky ones where I've suffered horrid ms regardless of the outcome so each pregnancy has been an anxious waiting game to say the least. Ms and seeing a hb has not meant much to us until after 10wks
I did though have bad vibes with our 2 losses. The last thing I did the morning of our nt scan was read a section in my book about mc and whether the baby could have passed without knowing. Strange, as we then found out bub had passed 4wks earlier. With our 3rd pregnancy, I just felt something wasn't right from the start. When we saw the hb, I could never shake the feeling that the nt scan was going to show markers and high odds for a trisomy. Strange, strange intuition...

I'm 13 weeks with my 3rd child. I have had 6 miscarriages! 5 before my 2 girls and another one April last year( a mmc) I am so excited about this baby and so scared at the same time! After 6 miscarriages I don't think I will relax until he/she is born and that makes me sad. Everytime I decide to go baby shopping I end up leaving empty handed just in case something goes wrong.
And my NT scan last week was perfect but I still can't bring myself to relax
It definitely takes all innocence out of pregnancy. I still have times where I don't trust that there will be a bub come August. We have got some basics, but haven't set anything up for bub or really put any effort into having things prepared yet.
Thats really good Im hoping thats the case cause morning sickness has been really bad this time round, Thank you!
Just wanted to drop in and say hi, and hope you and your bubs are all doing well.
(baby steps, baby steps)
I'll be 36 weeks tomorrow!
Everything's on track, results have all been good - it's a waiting game now more than ever!
I'll be sure to update when baby girl is here.
In the meantime, stay well! Give your belly a rub from me and do something nice for yourself
