Pregnant after a Loss

New to this board - Intro

Hi Everyone! 

I thought I would join you - and that you all might understand me better than most of my friends!  I had a missed miscarriage between 8-9 weeks in July (the day before my 30th birthday) due to Triploidy.  I am pregnant again (yay!) and am now between 10 and 11 weeks.  The beginning of this pregnancy was a little crazy - I had to go in every week for an ultrasound until week 9.  First the sac was abnormal, then there were 2 sacs (the sac split) but only one baby, then the baby wasn't growing right, but now everything is looking ok! 

What I am noticing is that I now FIND things to worry about ... are my symptoms disappearing, will I hear a heartbeat at the next appointment, what will my NT scan show in two weeks?  I'm hoping that this is normal PGAL anxiety - but none of my friends have had any losses so I'm not sure they understand.  They say, "hearing a heartbeat should make you feel better" ... but I had heard a heartbeat twice during my last pregnancy.  

Sorry to ramble!  I am trying to stay positive and remember that I can't control any of this - and as of right now I have a sweet baby growing inside me! 

Thanks for letting me join!

  • Congrats!!! Sorry you are feeling so stressed about things, PGAL brain is a bitch and she shows up uninvited all the time. I panicked when my symptoms slowed at 11 weeks, I panic before every scan, before my NT scan, and many places in between. You are not alone!!! Hopefully you will get some comfort through this board!

  • Op, I sure understand-I heard the hb in the preg I lost before this one. I heard the hb of this one this week and got mega stressed (it's 'a bit slow' supposedly). Pgal brain is exhausting.
