Need Ease of Mind


This past May I had a missed miscarriage at 8 weeks where my baby stopped growing at 7 weeks and had no heartbeat. My husband and I are pregnant again (yay!) but the nerves are real. We went for our first ultrasound at 7 weeks again and there was a beautiful heartbeat at 147bpm and growing perfectly! Our next ultrasound I will be 10 weeks. However, my symptoms are starting to ease at 8 weeks and now I am nervous something  is wrong. I know once a heartbeat is identified that the percentage of miscarriage goes down but I cannot help that every symptom that eases I think the worst. 

Just looking if anyone has experienced something similar and all went well?

  • I have never been pregnant before but I am currently 7w1d and my story is similar to yours. Most of my symptoms that I had are way less or gone. I haven’t had an US yet so I don’t know if my baby even has a heartbeat or not. Just wanted to say you aren’t alone in your feelings!!! Praying all goes well for you!!!

    Same here! This is my second pregnancy that this has happened and it’s been boys both times! My daughter I was so sick my first tri all the way through! No symptoms doesn’t always mean something negative but also as a loss mama it can be very nerve wracking! Ten weeks today and haven’t had my first appointment yet to hear heart beat either. Fingers crossed with you both!
  • I totally hear you! I had a miscarriage in April and am now 7 weeks 3 days. Some of my symptoms have subsided and I’ve been on edge. Unfortunately I won’t have my first u/s until August 18 (right at 8 weeks). I keep reminding myself I’m farther along now then I was last time (I started spotting late in the fifth week with progressively worse bleeding). But of course I can’t help but panic every time I go to the bathroom to make sure everything is okay. It’s so hard but I also want to stay positive because I know the odds of miscarrying twice are relatively low! We’ll through it! If you saw the heartbeat that’s amazing and already way better than last time!
