    Hey BonBon, I endured 4 mcs but an now 30 weeks with my son. The first 12 weeks were terrifying. I found I got through it by celebrating my nausea. As crazy as it sounds sometimes I would go out of my way to smell something bad so I could be reminded that bubs was making me feel sick. Good luck with the next 8 weeks my fingers are crossed for you xx

    Hi, congratulations hun!
    I've had one mc and I am currently 19 weeks pregnant. The first 12 weeks I attended counseling every 3 weeks. She suggested writing a diary of all happy thoughts and how excited I am and then another for my worries. I also have had ultrasounds every 3 weeks up until now.
    Thinking of you! x

    Hey! I've only had two miscarriages but I'm really anxious and pregnant too.

    I'm only 5weeks (I think... haven't really had regular periods since last mc in April), but trying to make the most of whatever time I have with this bub. One of my closest friends up here had a stillbirth at 32 weeks two weeks ago so that doesn't really help anything

    Love the journalling idea. I have a history of anxiety, and my psychologist encouraged me to journal my anxieties (I journal them as prayers), but I haven't done it this pregnancy.

    What other things do people do to help beat anxiety?

    We're thinking of having a small party just with a few close friends so we can make the most of whatever time we have with bubs.

    Thank you its good to know that there are happy endings.
    The journal is a great idea i might start doing that.
    Somedays i drive my self crazy checking my boobs and other symptoms to see if there still there.
    I guess taking each day as it comes and stay calm, otherwise its out of my hands heres hoping for a sticky bub

    Hi Bonbon, I have had 3 missed m/c and nearly 3 weeks ago gave birth (albeit to a very premmie baby!!!). Prior to this pregnancy I had counselling and that really helped. I also took low dose aspirin each day and did acupuncture as I had no answers to why I was miscarrying. DF and I think I was blood clotting. With this pregnancy I decided to take one appointment at a time and did not book anything ahead. I also tried to stay as positive as possible and as hard as it is not stress. I remember having an ob apt at 10wks and she saw movement - that was my first feeling that this could be it as I had never got past 8wks. I also tried not to overthink the pregnancy symptoms. I did not really have any ms so just became thankful that I was able to hide the pregnancy until 13wks. I wish you all the very best and just keep positive

    Congrats on your pregnancy. I had 3 consecutive miscarriages prior to this healthy pregnancy I am now 36 weeks with a baby girl.the only thing I can say that helped me was I am a goal setter, so I set milestones along the way that helped me deal with smaller chunks rather than 40 weeks. For me they were 8 weeks, 12 week scan, 18 weeks, 24 weeks for viability, 28 weeks third trimester, 34 weeks for being able to birth at my local hospital and now its a healthy birth. This may or may of help you, but it did me. I have had a battle between my head and heart this entire pregnancy and still do, my head has been blocking me feeling attached but my heart has felt that it will all be ok. So know whatever your feeling along the way is completely normal, I wold also recommend counselling as well. Good luck!
