Moving on over (hopefully for 9 months) — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

Moving on over (hopefully for 9 months)

hey everyone! I'm Lauren and I'm mostly on the ttcal boards. Well, I was pretty certain AF was coming because I was crabby and angry, but then it didn't happen, so I took a hpt last night and got a bfp (and by bfp I mean, there technically was a super light line, but a line is a line so I'll take it)! 

Ive had 2 previous losses both in the 6-7 wk range within the past 7 months. So needless to say, emotions are high. At first, I ran down stairs with the hpt to tell my husband and he confirmed that there was a super faint line as well. We were super excited. Then I had about 15 minutes of neutrality, then cried myself to sleep at the thought of another potential loss. On top of that, DH will be taking a business trip for 2 weeks to China in my 6-8 wk range and that scares the hell out of me to be alone during the time where I might mc. I'm trying to be an optimist, but I have no children so far (sans my fur baby), so my pregnancy experiences haven't been positive. 

Thanks for reading. I'm hoping I'll be on this board for a long long time.

  • Welcome! I am also pregnant after 2 losses. It's so scary but I'm currently 26 weeks! My best advice is talk to your ob about your concerns and just try and enjoy today because today you are pregnant :)
  • Welcome!  This has been a great place for me to get support.  Lots of wonderful ladies with different experiences to share.  We have a weekly check in that starts each Monday too.

  • @RiverSong15 yes I did change my username! I was formally boots&co but the "&" threw off my profile. So I reverted back to my knot username. 

    Thanks everyone! I don't have tons on symptoms yet, which is scary (because I'm convinced it isn't going to work out), hoping for just a little bit of nausea or something to feel good about it today. 
  • Welcome!!! @LaurenDarling !! So many TTCAL folks this month!

  • Welcome and congratulations!  :)
  • I had two losses and now I'm 21 weeks. I felt the same way you do -- that when it comes to pregnancy, I always get the bad news. Hopefully the third time will be the charm for you as well. My fingers are crossed for you.

    •  Testing showed it was a girl with Trisomy 22. (age 39/40)
    9/5/18 Diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve (4-5 follicles, one ovary had none and was very atrophied)

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

    CP (age 40)
    BFP 5/11/19  •  Fraternal twins  •  MMC found at 10w5d (Baby A 6w, Baby B 10w)  •  Misoprostal at 11 weeks (age 41)

  • Congrats! Getting a BFP after a loss is definitely an emotional roller coaster. Try to take it one day at a time. My OB let me get in a few extra ultrasounds in 1st trimester since I was really anxious. Maybe you can talk with your OB about having an extra visit or two.
