I never really worried about miscarriages before our last baby. We heard the heartbeat at 10 weeks, and lost her at 14 weeks.:cry:
Now I am a worry wart.:banghead:
My hubby is sooooooo relaxed and just says, what will be, will.
I find myself thanking God EVERY time I go to the bathroom and there is no spotting.
Anyone else worried? How are you managing it?
I am trying to be relaxed, but I am sooooooo scared.
Oh, no spotting or anything.:thumbsup:

I'm a "cronic wiper" as well. We had a loss at 11 weeks... but I never spotted and landed up with a D&C. We're going to rent an at home doppler to hear the heartbeat whenever we want to help put my mind at ease for the first trimester. :thumbsup:

See thats just it. I had exactly three pencil eraser sized spots (TMI) and that was it, but I went in to make sure everything was OK. Well it was not.:cry:
So now that is all I can think of.:banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

I don't even have any experiences with loss and I'm still worried about it. I just keep praying that all our little beans will be ok and sticky. I guess the best way I'm dealing with it is to realize that there is nothing I can do. Does it help? Not really. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one.

i had a loss at 9 wks (well the baby only grew to 7wks) and what got me through my next pregnancy (besides prometrium) was visualization...i would just picture my tummy surrounded by white light and repeat to myself that my body was healthy and fertile and able to carry my baby safely...and that my baby was strong and growing every day...
im not sure if that is what made my pregnancy stay...but it sure helped me stay calm.
of course, this pregnancy started with spotting and i dont even know how/if far along i am...haha...its taking a LOT to stay positive...but im doing my best.
just know you're doing everything you can to be healthy and safe...the rest is up to God.

Three miscarriages, a diagnosed clotting disorder along with a high risk protocal for any future pregnancies and the nightmare of a baby who was diagnosed IUGR at 18 weeks gestation and didn't correct her issues until 34 weeks.
Yeah, its stressful for me. I wasn't planning on going down this road again. God had other plans. At this point, I'll breath easier after the OB looks and can either remove the IUD or tell me it was expelled and I missed it, despite watching like a hawk.

I am also so scared everytime I go pee, and sometimes go check even if I am not peeing. I just try and take it REALLY easy the first 12 wks...

I too am a chronic wiper. It's bad. I had lost one back in Sept b/c of low progesterone but we are fixing that this time. I have twins and there is always the chance of losing one or both. I have a really good ob on my side and we both want to see these 2 babes in Jan.
My ob doesn't call them miscarriages, she calls them misadventures. Doesn't make the loss any easier, but I know she has lots of concern for me and her patients.
I also have to remember that God is in control. It's hard to lose a baby and not understand why God took that baby from me, but I know he has great plans for my life. I pray for my babies daily and when I go to bed.
