Cautious Introduction — The Bump
Pregnant after 35

Cautious Introduction

Hi ladies,

By some miracle DH and I are back here again after suffering two recent losses.  I never imagined that we would have conceived naturally, but we did, and so far the pregnancy is progressing normally.  I had three beta draws this week and thankfully each beta doubled nicely.   Given our history of two repeat miscarriages I am absolutely terrified of another loss, but am trying my absolute hardest to remain positive, optimistic, and hopeful.  Our first u/s is 9/14 and am praying that this will be our take home baby.   Wishing for the next two weeks to fly by so we can hopefully see our little bean flickering away.
Me, 41; DH 38; TTC since July 2012, 1st round of Clomid, BFP on 10/19, what an incredible blessing!  M/c on 7w3d; D&C on 11/30; 4th round of Clomid 100mg = BFP on 04/19!!! M/c #2 at 7w; D&C on 5/30, then repeat D&C on 7/1.  Saline u/s on 8/2, uterus looks great!  Will start TTC in 09/13 w/ Clomid 100mg. Surprise natural BFP on 8/25!!! Beta #1=95, #2=182, #3=404!  EDD 5/4/13...Grow baby grow!

  • Keeping your thoughts and energy positive really is challenging, isn't it? I'm in a similar situation (newly pregnant after one loss), and I find my mind drifting to the "what ifs" way too often. And I, too, am hoping for the next 2 weeks to zip past and to get good news at the end of them. Best of luck to you!
  • Congratulations! FX for you.
