Pregnant after a Loss

Very newly pregnant...

Hi all I found great solace on this site with my first rainbow baby born 1/26/12. My first loss was a missed miscarriage at 11w in February of 2011. I had another loss this April and I am now very very early with this pregnancy.  I have a 5.5 yr DD and a 3.5 yr DS.  I am so nervous again this time but I am trying just to be at peace with this pregnnacy.  I got a very faint FRER + on Weds, confirmed with a beta yesterday low but ok at 24.8, betas again on Monday.  I am just trying to remain calm and pray for a sticking baby.  H&H 9 months to all and I hope to be sticking around this time!

  • Update to second was 220 so a 29.4 doubling time!!!!  RE said I can wait a week for my next appt where Ill get a US hoping to see gestational sac and fetal pole!
  • Big question cause I'm going CRAZY!!! One week ago... 2 weeks before my period was due, I took a test and it was a faint positive..., completely excited cause I suffered a loss in July at 10.5 weeks.... Now every test I take says negitive..... I'm 5 days away from my period! How did I get a positive... And now nothing?!
    I have no symptoms except this weird sick feeling with everything I eat and some headaches and some cramps on my lower right side by my hip.... Can anyone shed some light????
  • Did your doc follow your HCG to zero after your loss?
  • @Lisaconfused I had positive tests/HCG at positive levels for about 8 weeks after my most recent loss. It look a REALLY long time for my HCG to drop. My Dr. did track mine to zero because with my first loss I had a negative test only 2 weeks later. I would try and see you doctor so you know what's going on. Good luck. I hope you find an answer.

  • Thanks ladies yes my levels went back to zero , tracked by blood. I had made sure of it by getting negitive pregnancy tests. 4 weeks after my miscarriage to the day I got my period full blown. 2 weeks after my period I got a positive and now nothing but showing many signs of early pregnancy either that or my periods are going to be hell from now on. I just don't understand how it could be a "fluk" like my doctor tells me it is. False positives can not be that common right?!
  • @Lisaconfused I got a false positive on a FRER (it was pink and way darker than ones that actually turned into positives later) the month before I got pregnant with this baby. It was awful and a super weird month--I felt pregnant but didn't ovulate until after that false positive (confirmed by a
    OPKs I took out of desperation and frustration). I started temping and got the clean blue fertility monitor because I felt like I was going insane and got pregnant the next month.

    Anyway, they are rare, but they do happen. Fingers crossed that's not what happening to you!!
