Pregnant after a Loss


Hi Ladies...I was here on TB when I was pregnant with DS (2.5) and made some lifelong friends. Now I'm PGAL (blighted ovum in August) and this is the place I feel like I want to be. 

I'm 5+5 today and my first dr appt and u/s is 10 days away. I've told my immediate family with the caveat, "let's hope this one sticks." I feel completely numb. I'm not excited, I'm not scared, I'm just...meh. I'm just counting down the days to that appt and trying not to google "statistics of..." too much. 

Anyway. Glad to be here. 

Re: Intro

  • Hi there! My first loss was also a blighted ovum so I understand the fear that comes with waiting for that first ultrasound. I think it was probably after my anatomy scan that I started feeling connected to the baby - it's totally normal to not feel excited when you've faced the disappointment of a loss. Congrats on this new pregnancy and FX for a great ultrasound.
