Pregnant after a Loss

11 week appt today...letting myself get my hopes up

I had an appointment today. It was technically my first one not counting viability ultrasounds at 6&7 weeks. I was so e cited to see they had a little pocket ultrasound thing. It looks like an iPhone. It doesn't show measurements or anything but we got a little peek at the baby. Dr said he/she is right on track. Everything looked perfect according to him. I can feel myself getting my hopes up which is scary. But part of me wants to let myself do that bc shouldn't I be allowed to be excited?

  • Congrats on the good appointment!
    Yes, you are allowed to be excited!
  • Ya! You can get excited and nervous at the same time. You're gonna be nervous either way, so you may as well add some excitement to it and make it bearable! Congratulations on pretty much being out of the first trimester! That's big for you and baby!

  • If I get to 11 weeks, I'm gonna be super excited! (Plus, the morning sickness might be going away by then?) So go ahead and get excited!

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

  • @rkrichey YES! There's no rules, so whatever feels right to you is right! I did the same thing after my NT scan at 11w5d. I decided that in all honesty I have zero control on the outcome of this pregnancy. (Obviously I could be doing drugs or what not and that would be a different story- but I'm talking living my normal lifestyle. Lol!) So I took a deep breath and shared my news freely and have felt great since. I've had two losses since the birth of my daughter. And I feel it's not fair to this baby to live in dread instead of celebrating him. So yay for you! I hope a weight has been lifted and you can smile easier about this pregnancy!
  • If I get to 11 weeks, I'm gonna be super excited! (Plus, the morning sickness might be going away by then?) So go ahead and get excited!

    I've had 2 losses at 7w5d and I am just hitting the 11 week mark...ms or all day sickness is worse. Lol. I really was hoping it would be better also!
