Quick bio: I'm 37, I miscarried and had a d&c in mid-September (after bleeding for several weeks and seeing a heartbeat twice :-( ), I had my first period November 4th-9th, I'm pregnant again already! I want to be excited, but instead I'm worried and scared it's going happen again. I went to the doctor yesterday to confirm the pregnancy only through a pee test. I go back next week for an Ultrasound. They mentioned yesterday I may not be able to date it to my period since it was the only one since my d&c. So, while I was hoping I was right at 8 weeks, I won't really know until the ultrasound. Anyone else been through this? Anything I can do to relax? Has anyone else had one period and gotten pregnant? We're the dates right for you? Ack! See, I'm crazy and all over the place!
Re: Miscarried...Pregnant Again...Advice?
The next month we tried and I got my big fat positive!
I can SO relate to how you feel!
I kept myself busy, only told a few friends and family members this time. The fact that I was miserable the first trimester was reassuring but also so draining.
I had three ultrasounds by 11 weeks.
I'm now 16w and baby is growing & healthy! I had the harmony test and all is good.
I am 39 & will be 40 when I deliver in June.
Just hang in there, take it easy, let the house go to hell and take care of yourself. Take your prenatals, eat healthy & rest:)

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