Pregnant after a Loss

*update* First u/s later today; really nervous

2redtulips2redtulips member
edited December 2013 in Pregnant after a Loss
I have managed to hold it together until today, but now I am a bit of a wreck. 

With our loss, we had our first u/s at 8 weeks and we never saw a heartbeat. Growth had stopped at 6w1d. So, to me, ultrasounds mean diagnostic testing or bad news. I can't even wrap my head around what good news would feel like.

I am 6w3d today, and I want to be hopeful (I'm trying!), but pgal brain has definitely set in today. I go in this afternoon, and I will update after that.
*Update* We have a strong heartbeat!! I am officially further along than I have been. Today, I am pregnant. Today, I am happy. :) Thanks again for your good thoughts.

  • I totally relate. My first u/s is tomorrow. I am trying to stay calm and not let fear eat me alive.  Today I am pregnant and I love my baby... repeat.  And, there is nothing I can do to change the outcome, it is out of my hands. Those mantra's are the only words keeping me looking ahead. GL today!  I will be thinking of you.

  • I'm so sorry to hear that you are nervous!  I completely understand!  I went for my first U/S at 6 weeks, 1 day, and I was measuring behind so there was only a gestational sac and yolk sac (so I was freaking out!)...so they had me come in a week later, and sure enough, baby measured on time and there was the beautiful heartbeat!  So just don't worry too much (easier said than done, I know) if you don't see everything the first time!  Try to stay positive!  FX for you, and please update us later:)

  • Good luck today and just remember that like you all of my previous u/s gave me bad news- so I tried to tell myself that it only takes one to break the pattern! That happened to me after we saw a great heartbeat and then the next u/s also saw a little wiggling gummy bear; so just keep the faith. :)

    No. Same EDD, based on LMP. I didn't do any OPKs that cycle because we were gearing up for an IUI on the next cycle.
