Pregnant after a Loss

Today I'm pregnant/ Intro

I got a faint line on a Wondfo this afternoon (9 dpo) and I just need to share it with someone!  I'm not ready to tell DH yet as I just want to let it sink in for a few days and make sure it's real.  We've been trying for 15 months now with two losses around 11 weeks.  Also, I found out this morning that my beloved grandmother passed away last night.  I want to believe she had a hand in this somehow.  She had miscarried her second baby and I always felt like she knew what we were going through.  I'm not ready to get too excited, I'll be holding my breath for a few weeks at least, but just needed to get this out.  I hope I can stick with you guys for the next 9 months.

    My loss was at eleven weeks too. I'm so sorry you've had to go through two in the last year and a half. And I'm sorry for the loss of your grandmother as well. Glad she gave you comfort in your losses. 

    Will you see your doctor/Midwife soon for blood work? Hopefully they also give you an early ultrasound considering your history. Hoping at least they give you some reassurance and walk with you through the first trimester. 

    In the meantime we are pulling for you! Thanks for sharing your news.

    Welcome and congratulations! I'm sorry for your loss. Will your Dr order betas and/or an early ultrasound? This is a small but supportive board- we'll be rooting for you and your little one! 

    I lost my mom to cancer a month before I got pregnant with my DD- I've always felt she had a hand in our blessing too, so I understand how you're feeling. I'm sorry for the loss of your grandmother. Grandparents have such a special role in our lives.

  • Thanks!  I expect to hear from my doctor today since I had my progesterone drawn on Monday.  He's not an RE, and he's been very laid back so I don't expect him to suggest labs or early u/s.  I will probably have to push for anything like that if I want it.  Right now I'm just hoping the progesterone is good and we'll go from there.
