Pregnant after a Loss

Into.. Loss mentioned.

Hello ladies!!
I just wanted to introduce myself over here as I can imagine I will be leaning on all of you during this journey!
I'm 24 and my Dh is 29. We have a son who will be 4(!!) tomorrow!!
We decided to add another to our family this summer and got pregnant right away. Sadly, that ended in a 12 week MMC and D&C on September 11, which was also my birthday. :(
We waited the one cycle before TTC again and didn't get pregnant until our 3rd cycle officially trying.
I just found out a few days ago and I'm due September 7th.

We are beyond thrilled but are nervous. Just trying to be positive and know that worrying won't help or change anything.

We are not telling our son yet as he was with us when we got the devastating news last time and he was so heart broken. Hoping to get perfect bloodwork levels and then a perfect 8week scan before telling him.

My last pregnancy started off rocky with low progesterone and a SCH so praying for a healthy and perfect start this time.
After no symptoms last time, I'm excited to be feeling like crap already! ;)

Excited to be here and hoping I can gain encouragement and also be an encouragement to someone in the future!

Hope you are all having great days!

  • The early days are rough! I hope the time goes by quickly and you get a good u/s. I just had a successful one at 8w4d and it felt amazing after two losses. Good luck!!

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

  • @CarrieandRoy Yay on a successful scan!!
    What are some things you did to help ease your mind? Or to pass the time quickly?
    Maybe I need to start a project!

  • This may sound awful, but I found a chart online that listed miscarriage odds by day, so every day I'd watch my chances improve. A project is a much better idea!

  • I've seen that chart but after a MMC I don't think it will help much this time!!
    boo.
  • Wow I felt like I was reading my own story, I found out about my MMC at 11+6wks the day before my birthday back in March, it was the worst birthday ever.  I'm so sorry for your loss.

    Congratulations on your pregnancy, I wish you a happy and healthy 9 months.

    @crob5685 I just got my results!!!! They were perfect and no further labs need done!! With my last pregnancy my progesterone didn't go above 17 even with supplements, this time it's already at 26!! My HCG is 187 at 13dpo!
    So thankful! Next step is ultrasound at the end of January!!
