Pregnant after a Loss

Hello Everyone


I'm J, and DH and I lost our first baby in December at 7w. It was a natural miscarriage so we are unsure of the reason for the loss but have been told it was likely a chromasomal abnormality. After three cycles of trying post-loss, we are pregnant again (due Nov 3) and I am terrified. Every little twinge makes me nervous (I've been constipated and having some spotting with BMs which is not helping my nerves) and I plan on being a real pain in my doctors ass, and requesting a lot of bloodwork and early scans due to underlying health conditions I worry may have affected my previous pregnancy (unexplained mid-luteal phase bleeding, hypoparathyroidism and had a thyroidectomy last year). 

This is pregnancy I found out incredibly early, a super squinter on a FRER at 9dpo (3w3d) and an obvious positive the next day so I feel like I've gained lots of extra time to worry about my little bean. I'm now 3w6d and getting my second beta drawn today along with progesterone levels to see what's going on, and my first appointment with my FMD tomorrow, where I'll be asking for an early referral to an OB (among other things). Looking forward to getting to know all of you, and hoping for sticky babies and uneventful 9m for all of us!

Re: Hello Everyone

  • Hi! I recognize your username from some board, can't remember which one! Glad you are getting early bloodwork and your family doc is being proactive. I'm due October 31st, and also found out at 3w3d! Welcome and glad to see some more people due around my EDD. There seems to be a lot of TTCAL grads ending up here, which is so encouraging! Wishing you a H&H 9 months. 
  • I also found out at 3w3d. It's a long wait! Good luck to you.  And I also recognize your screen name. Perhaps from TTGP?  I lurked there from time to time.

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