Pregnant after a Loss

A thankful Thanksgiving!

Today I've made it to 9 weeks! I haven't been cramping and have had no spotting for a while so As my doctor says there are no signs that point to a miscarriage! And I've been sick for a while which means my body is still producing hormones! Both of my previous losses were before the 9 week mark so I'm feeling really hopeful! The last one was a mmc so I won't feel completely ok until 12 weeks but for the first time I feel happy! To top it all off today I've been holding things down and might actually get to enjoy some food! What are you ladies grateful for today?

Re: A thankful Thanksgiving!

  • I am grateful for a little heartbeat yesterday. Doctor said we are late 5 early 6 week area. We have had blighted ovum, six week loss, and a chemical pregnancy. None of our other ever saw a heartbeat so very thankful for this! Thankful our parents were both here for Thanksgiving some could tell them in person and my Daddy prayed for our little lightening bug during the Thanksgiving meal prayer.

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.

    ^^ this exactly. I'm 5w today and trying to think positive thoughts rather than worrying about everything. I am telling my baby in my head that they are growing, being nourished by my body and that we can't wait to meet him or her. It makes me feel more grateful for today than worried.
