Pregnant after a Loss

How are you feeling?

Hi ladies! I just wanted to check in to see how you all are feeling? How many weeks are you? Hopefully everything is progressing along nicely! I'm coming up on 21 weeks and just starting to think about preparing for our little guy. My husband just had back surgery so I feel like I'm coming out of a 6 week nightmare of stress and worry. Physically and emotionally, I'm tired. But I do feel as though I'm becoming more connected to this baby everyday and an ready to take some time off to focus on him (and our 2.5 year old daughter!)

Re: How are you feeling?

  • 11 weeks 5 days FTM. Nervous is the only word I can use to describe how I am feeling.

    Hope your husbands back surgery went well and that his recovery goes smoothly!
  • I am almost 24weeks and I'm doing great.  It is hard to quiet down the little voices that say things are going to go south, but I try my best.  Our little girl kicks me every single day and I couldn't love her any more.  My husband even painted the nursery which a month ago I probably would have had a panic attack over.  Overall I think I am doing great for how scared I was in the beginning, it has been 20 weeks since I found out about my second pregnancy and that just blows my mind.

    Right there with you @Plleriti1 !
  • 6w3d and horribly, horribly nauseous. It actually caught me off guard when you mentioned preparing for the baby, because I have completely forgotten that part. I feel like I'm just trying to get through an illness.

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

  • I'm really sick majority of the time and a mess currently. At my doctors appointment this week he wasn't able to find the heart beat. He wasn't concerned at all because most of the time they don't find it until 12 weeks or more (I was 10w 3d at the appointment). But I can't help but worry which doesn't help with the nausea.
  • I am 11+5. Feeling better energy wise finally. I was wiped out from 6-10 1/2 weeks. I'm just trying to pass the time between OB appointments. Can't wait to feel this little one start moving around! It feels wrong to say that bc normally I wouldn't dare think that far ahead but I'm working on being more positive! No more "if" I have this baby. It's "when" for me from now on. *crosses fingers and toes while knocking on wood*

  • @bntfroggie A painted nursery?! How great! How'd you decide on a theme? This time around I can't make ANY decisions! Lol!
    @ALC08 glad you're still doing good!
    @CarrieandRoy I'm sorry you're so sick but I'm gonna take that as a GREAT sign!
    @msuzannah I'm sorry, that's nerve wracking but don't lose hope!
    @rkrichey YES! Exactly! When, not if! I love your positivity! I'm doing he same for myself!
  • @Plleriti1 yes we did decide on a theme, we are going with a forest/woodland theme.  So foxes, owls, rabbits, etc.  We painted the nursery green.  It is much darker than sage, but in that same family.  It still needs another coat, and honestly I am the control freak in the family so it kills me not to be in there painting.

  • Hahaha! I love it! Same for me! My husband is currently repainting my kitchen cupboards and I just stand around analyzing! Im such a color commitment freak so I always start out completely neutral before changing my mind 100% and then go colorful! It's ridiculous! But your nursery sounds precious!
  • I'm 5w today and am starting to feel very tired. Having some nausea off and on. Started getting some painful cramps today, had a major freak out and texted DH that I was certain I was losing it. In fact, I felt wetness down there and was certain it was blood (it wasn't). DH reassured me that I've been wrong about everything so far this cycle (I didn't think I ovulated, I didn't think I was pregnant, I was certain my beta was going to be low, etc) so I should just relax. I'm also having some wild mood swings - is that normal this early?

  • @jilligan14 Hey, we are due date (and symptom) twins! Nausea, fatigue, cramps, anxiety about every little thing...yup. I have my first doctor's appointment tomorrow so I'm excited to have everything confirmed (fingers crossed)!
  • @lfh22 yay, it's good to have a twin to go through with all of this!!! Good luck at your appointment tomorrow, let me know how it goes!

  • @jilligan14 Yes, mood swings plus anxiety make for a wild ride! Hang in there. I think every one of us on this board have felt the same way!
