Pregnancy After Loss Thread

I thought I'd throw this thread idea out there and see if there's any interest from others. It's hard for many of us who've experienced a loss to sometimes fit in with our ddc. I know my worries aren't necessarily the same as the other mamas who've never experienced a loss. I thought this could be a place where we could express our worries to other mamas who are traveling a similar path.

Anyone else interested?

Re: Pregnancy After Loss Thread

I would love a thread like this but I am not pregnant yet. Give me 2 weeks though and I may be (transfer is a week from today for FET).

This (should it happen) will be my 2nd pregnancy after my last loss, and my 3rd after my major loss. So I have lived through it and I was successful.

I love this idea! THis pregnancy has been so anxiety ridden and nerve wracking. Even with a doppler. It's a terrible place to me and thankfully many don't understand (though unfortunately many do :-( )

I'm interested! I haven't joined a ddc because I didn't want to have to UNjoin later. I had a miscarriage at 12 weeks in February and at just 5 weeks in May. I'm now a little over 7 weeks and SUPER sick this time. I'm glad to be sick, but still nervous.

I lost my little one at 15 wks and I'm just now 6 wks. We can be nervous together!

I'm glad there are others out there to worry with.

Re: Pregnancy After Loss Thread

Just got a bfp today and I'm so afraid of UNjoining too! It would nice to have a place to vent fears and such. I hope all of us get our take home babies

I'm so glad to share with you all, but sorry for the circumstances. We are adopting in 5 days! So if this little one sticks, I'll have babies just 7 months apart! Eeek!

Wow! You go girl! I have a friend who fosters and she has 9 mo old bio DS and a 9 mo old foster DD. She had FDD in her home before her DS was born. She also has another bio DS (6 yo) and a FDD (2 yo). She's a busy mama!

Heather - Congrats!!!

AFM - I'm afraid I'm going to worry this entire pregnancy and not enjoy it. This will likely be our last child and I want to enjoy it! We saw and heard our angel baby's HB (170s) via u/s at 10 wks and then at the 15 wk appt there was nothing. Who would've thought I'd fear a doppler so much?

In the 2ww thread I may do a test comparison thread in the AM since it's like test central up in here. Thanks hun!



Oh and I guess I'll do a background too since it's not in my siggy. I've had three losses, one at 6w3, 5w5, and 7w4d. I found out after the third one that I have antiphospholipid syndrome. So my body attacks the growing kidlet like a disease and produces lots of clots so it can't progress Thankfully taking Lovenox asap, reduces the m/c rate by 75% so I'm getting my script tomorrow and hoping for the best. I'm already comforted by this insanely early bfp at 8dpo. All my losses were at 15dpo or later and fainter than this test from today.
