Re: Pregnancy After Loss (Feb 1-14)

thank you!! i already dont feel pregnant (morning sickness finally gone - had for 8 weeks) and not as tired or grouchy or needing to eat every hr of the day. i do hope I get back on track asap. assuming that all has to do with how long i bleed and how fast the hcg drops.

I conceived Deagan two weeks after a 15 week loss. My cycles (except when nursing) have always come back 4-5 weeks after the miscarriage and I've gotten pregnant within a month after once ---the only time i tried that soon, the others I prevented for various reasons for a couple months.

Yesterday I had a surprise cry at my ultrasound appointment when the Dr. showed me Baby A. I think she did it to try to make me feel better, but oops- it certainly stirred up emotions. She told me that Baby A is shrinking and will be absorbed in my body soon and will be "obliterated." I'm sure she didn't think of what that word would mean to me, but the whole thing was so sad. I had difficulty then going on with the rest of the ultrasound.

So here I am- experiencing a loss and a pregnancy all at once. The mix of emotions are so unusual...
Glad you made it over. I remember the feeling of seeing the remains of baby B on the u/s. It's HARD. And it took a while until baby B was no longer visible and since your loss was later than mine it will probably be even longer for yours. (((Hugs))) Take your time to grieve. Sorry your Dr was so insensitive.

Marie sounds like a good appointment.

Elena glad your're back sorry about the bleeding.

AFM-thankfully after 2 trips to the ortho and getting a nice support belt for my symphysis I'm doing much better. No more pain unless I overdo things or make a wrong movement. Nausea and vomiting is the same so that keeps me from overdoing things anyway. We go to see the perinatologist Tuesday and it will be my first real appointment since December 19th. Not really counting the level 2 u/s here because that was just the u/s. Baby boy is sooooo active and already waking me every night because he kicks so hard. LOL And he hates me having a full bladder and will actively punch it when he thinks I need to use the restroom :P Love that part of pregnancy and trying to treasure it because this is definitely my last. (unless God has a very weird sense of humor!)

DH keeps bugging me to go see someone about my pelvic/hip pain or at least get a support belt for it. I keep refusing, not wanting to admit that it's that bad FTR, it is that bad... I just don't admit that, lol!

'cept replace that wall with my bladder! For the past couple weeks Hiccup has been hating it whenever I have to pee - lots of bumping and shoving on my bladder! Makes it awful hard to hold it sometimes, lol.
DH and I went to a concert on Monday night and I drank the better part of 2 bottles of water... then, of course, I had to pee... but didn't want to miss any songs! So I waited, but Hiccup was NOT happy in there!!

Had a quick scare at my OB appt this morning. The tech measured my fluids at a 5 and my OB had a hard time getting the little lady to move. Sent me over to MFM where they sugared my up for the NST and did a BPP. She reacted well to both and that tech found another fluid pocket, bringing my total to 9. Safe for a few more days! I think the stress got to me though bc once I got back to work I started not feeling well so I came home to rest.

Yikes! That does sound scary! I hope your hospital bag is packed and by the door just in case! You go back again later this week, right?

When I was pregnant with my son, which was a scary, complicated pregnancy, they had me coming in BPP's 2x a week. I showed up for my appointment that was 1 week before my scheduled c-section and it turns out I was already 4 cm dialated! They sent me over to the hospital ASAP and he was born as soon as my hubby could get there. Now, my situation was an entirely different set of circumstances...but let me just tell you, it was shocking and very emotional....even though I had known for weeks that he could come sooner than we thought. Thankfully in the end, everything turned out very well

So....BIG and sending some your way....keep us posted!!

Luckily, I still have 4.6cm. And she jumped and bumped and partied the whole time. The doc was like "is she like this all the time?"

YUP!

Tw doc wonders how I sleep...HA!

All looks good

Glad everything looks good and you have a champion kicker in there. I love feeling those kicks, sooo reassuring!

I'm glad you found your way over to us, though sad you have to be here. Such a difficult situation you have, enjoying a pregnancy you've longed for while a grieving the loss at the same time. I'm sorry your OB wasn't as sensitive as she should have been. Sometimes doctor's don't seem to get how their technical speak causes harm.
When I was going through my 11 week D & C, one of the intake people that was reviewing my procedure used the term "abortion." That was absolutely not the reason I was there, it wasn't my choice to loose my child and it was upsetting. I corrected the man and said "d & c," but it still made me feel worse than I already was.

Anyway, hope things go well for the rest of your pregnancy..

Oh my! That must have been surprising. Take care of yourself!


AFM: Nothing new here. 23 weeks, feeling regular kicks and loving it. I've felt comfortable to purchase all my newborn diapers and babywearing paraphernalia. I have an ultrasound on Thursday with my specialist, just a regular check up for me due to high blood pressure issues. I'm on meds and it's under control, but I have to see a specialist every month to monitor things.

"Spontaneous abortion" is the worse phrase in the medical world---I didn't just up and suddenly decide I don't want a baby and I'd get rid if it, jerk-face! they seriously can't just call it a miscarriage!?!

End rant.

Ugh. I hate that term. I hate that miscarriages are "technically" abortions.

So glad you're feeling good movement So reassuring, eh?
