Pregnant after a Loss

Am I crazy?

So here I sit 5w 1d pregnant. I have take about 10 tests and they are all positive. This is my first pregnancy after a loss and i am terrified of it happening again. All my symptoms have seem to come and gone and I don't know how to take this. Is that normal? I don't go to the doc until August 16th(8 weeks) and it feels like forever away. How do you all stay positive?! I'm freaking out. 

last time I went in for a 9 week checkup and found out that at 7w3d everything stopped growing. 

I feel eel like I have a fullness/ heaviness in my pelvic area and I don't know if that is normal! I feel crazy!! 

Re: Am I crazy?

  • Your not crazy!  I'm in the same boat as you, but I'm not even hopeful enough to make a dr appointment yet.  I'm afraid it'll end before the appointment or that making an appointment will jinx it(irrational I know!) or something.  I guess I'll call at 8 weeks if I'm still pregnant and make an appointment then (prenatal care is very important).  The fullness is normal, most people are super bloated for the first 6-10 weeks of pregnancy.  I'm keeping happy thoughts going for you, maybe we'll both get babies this time around!

  • Not crazy at all. I average 14 pg test per pregnancy and I still do not really believe it until I see an u/s. Try (it know impossible) but try not to worry about symptoms.  I usually do not have any of the classic ones until after 7 weeks. Symptoms or lack thereof of really is not a sign of a healthy or unhealthy pregnancy.  Good luck, sticky thoughts to you!

  • You are not crazy. The first weeks were such a struggle. My OB knew of my previous loss and let me have betas drawn every two days for a long as I wanted. I think I went every 2-3 days for the first 2 weeks after BFP. Maybe you could ask for a few betas to ease your mind. Also, I really like lighting a candle during the day (I get the cheap Jesus candles from the grocery store) to hold space for my little one. It helped me feel like I was doing something. Big hugs.

    I waited to see my doctor until 12 weeks 3 days. I told close friends and  family at 13 weeks and didn't tell anyone at work or otherwise until week 20.  The first trimester was the hardest trying not to worry. Good luck and here is to a healthy and happy pregnancy to you all!
