Pregnant after a Loss

Happy update--21 weeks!

This board was a great support a few months ago, but I went through a phase where I couldn't stand to think about the possibility of loss. But now everything seems great and I wanted to share. 

After a miscarriage at 7 weeks last Christmas, then 5-6 weeks in August (and a possible chemical pregnancy that only lasted a few days between), we had all kinds of testing done and found out my husband has a chromosome mutation that can cause first trimester miscarriages....and then we found out we were pregnant again (with the date of LMP essentially being the date of the August miscarriage). With the new info about the chromosome mutation, we were SURE it was going to be another miscarriage. I was just waiting for it to happen. We had an 8 week ultrasound and were SHOCKED to find out everything looked fine! 

Now I'm 21 weeks and everything still looks great. We just started shopping for baby stuff and bought a crib this past weekend. We held off until about 16 weeks to start telling people, but now the news is out there!

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