Pregnant after a Loss

Needing prayer

Hi ladies, i just found out i am 5 wks pregnant. I of course am worried since i miscarried back in October 2015 at 9 weeks. My first pregnancy was successful and i have an almost 2 year old son. But for some reason my second didn't work. I'm wondering if it was from the lovenox shots i was taking. But i am just in need of prayer to calm my soul and just enjoy the pregnancy. Thanks ladies.

Re: Needing prayer

  • I will pray for you! Those first several weeks were the toughest for me. I had two mc in 8 months prior to this pregnancy and no successful pregnancies so nerves and anxiety were bad! You should start to feel better as your pregnancy progresses. There is always some fear in the back of my mind but i am over that hump. When do you see your dr?
  • Like ALC08, I also had 2 losses this year and have no children. I was so nervous this time, but now I'm 12 wks pregnant with a little girl!  Try to relax for now, and every time you get good news, let it calm you and give you hope. Good luck!

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

  • Thank you ladies. I'm sorry for your losses and i wish you great success with your pregnancies. And ALC08 my first official doctors appointment is not until January 25th. It seems so far away. I hope i get a scan and see the heart beat. I'm just get worried when my symptoms come and go. Thank you for your encouraging words.
  • Get your mind distracted, find some hobbies or things to do, and the time will go by! I know that waiting for the next appointment is killer. 4 weeks seems so long in between appointments! Some days will fly by and others will crawl. But if I can get myself distracted I feel better. And when I am getting stressed out and worried, I like planning for the baby. I feel like the more confidence I put in this pregnancy, the better I feel about it.

    Losing a pregnancy is AWFUL and I think losing one without a reason is even worse. I believe if they had been able to tell me why I lost the first pregnancy, perhaps I wouldn't be so worried this time. 17+ weeks along now though and tomorrow I'm going for my anatomy scan. Nervous but excited! You will do great and I send so many positive thoughts to you that your weeks keep adding up and your sweet baby keeps growing right along.
  • Prayers being sent.  I had a miscarriage in March of 15.  Nothing can prepare you for that heavy blow.  I agree with PPs try and distract yourself, but unfortunately for us PGAL gals the worry will always be there especially in the beginning.  Let us know how your appointment goes on the 25th.

  • Thank you ladies i will try my hardest to stay detracted. It just gets hard at times. But i can do it. I have confidence in this pregnancy. I will update you about my appointment.
