Pregnant after a Loss

Eeek! Hold me, please! (intro)

I got my BFP on 1/15 and I still am having difficulties processing it. I was a semi-active member on TTCAL for the past 8 months after my baby was diagnosed with an ultimately fatal ntd at 18 weeks. I hope, hope, hope that this is my take home baby! I was absolutely not expecting to be pg when I took a FRER, but lo and behold here I am. I hope I get to stay and get to know all of you!

To the Ladies of TTCAL: 
Thank you for your wisdom and support. I am so grateful to have found you all when I felt I had nowhere to turn. 

Re: Eeek! Hold me, please! (intro)

  • Congratulations on your BFP!! Wishing you a h&h 9 months!!

    Hi Ashlee.. i too had to be induced at 22 weeks and deliver after they found a fatal NTD on my baby boy at 20 weeks. it was the hardest thing i think i have ever had to go through. i am now pregnant again with my first appointment in 2 hours! im scared to absolute death for this appointment *im 10 weeks 3 days today* but trying to have faith and be positive!

    Good luck to you and a happy and healthy pregnancy..

    Did they have you on extra folic for this pregnancy like they made me do? I took an extra 5mg of folic for 4 months before.

  • @xoalicia Congratulations to you!! GL with your first appointment! 

    I have been on 4mg of folic acid for about 8 months now, since the day after my d&e.

    It is so hard not to worry, but I am hopeful that this pregnancy will be completely different. 
  • Yey congrats!!!!!

  • @xoalicia‌ I am doing okay! I have my first appointment tomorrow at 5 weeks 5's nice but also terrifying because I know it's normal to not be able to see much at that time but if I don't see anything I know I will worry! Hopefully everything goes well!

    How are you doing?
  • Ohh please update me :) I'm doing well .. Had my ultrasound last Wednesday and saw baby and heard hb :) very nervous about my
