Pregnant after a Loss

Hi ladies...Intro

Hi everyone. I'm 5 weeks pregnant after having a stillborn daughter at 31 weeks in September. I'm so excited to be expecting again, but also terrified of something going wrong. I'm sure this will be a very emotional journey. We also have a 4 year old daughter.

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

  • Congratulations! I'm so sorry for your loss. I too am pregnant after a stillborn and it is exciting yet terrifying. It's one of the hardest things and I'm very emotionally all over the place. I don't think there is a time I will feel "safe" but we are about half way through and therapy is helping a lot. Just don't be shy about telling your dr/midwives what you need. Tell them if you need o see baby, or hear a heartbeat. best of luck to you!

  • Sorry for your loss but congrats on the BFP! I hope this board can help ease some of your anxieties.
  • hey waterfall.  First off I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sorry for all our losses. I lost my son at the end of September at 37 weeks.  I'm now 5 weeks pregnant as well and can't believe it.  I'm thankful this board exists to help us all.  One of of the things I've learned through everything is just how strong and supportive women are to eachother.
