his thread is for those who are pregnant after a previous loss(es). TW for entire thread due to discussion of MC, TFMR, CP, etc. 


Previous loss(es) (share as much or as little as you like)? 

How are you feeling? Emotionally & physically? 

Any appointment updates? 

Any big milestones? 


Re: PGAL - Week of 8/28

  • Weeks/EDD? 3 or 4? I think 5/7

    Previous loss(es) (share as much or as little as you like)? Had an early loss in July, got pregnant this time around in the first cycle after miscarrying.

    How are you feeling? Emotionally & physically? I'm feeling cautiously optimistic at the moment. I've been POAS every day and I'm hardly showing a positive on the cheapies. My digital test turned positive a couple days ago though.

    Any appointment updates? Any big milestones? Lumping these two together. My ob sent me for an HCG and Progesterone on Friday. HCG was 28, Progesterone was 23.17. My ob said that was great for the progesterone, she said she is happy with high teens and mine was over 20 so that was a good sign. Then my HCG yesterday was 73. So more than doubled, so I'm feeling good at the moment. It feels like a milestone! Last time, my hch was increasing but not doubling and eventually ended in loss, so I was anxious to see the numbers this time.

    Rants/Raves/Questions? I'm estimating I'm about 12 DPO today, is it normal that I'm only getting a super faint line on cheapies?

    I have the pregmate amazon cheapies and mine were super light in the beginning. I didn’t even notice my first positive until it dried. They get significantly darker as they dry for me. Those are great numbers though!!

  • My cheapies are finally showing up! I have them all lined up and they are getting darker and darker, thankfully. My ob had me do one more hcg on Tuesday and it was 197, so more peace of mind! 
  • Weeks/EDD? I am 5 weeks, 3 days. Due around May 3rd 2024

    Previous loss(es) (share as much or as little as you like)? I lost twins at 7 weeks back in April, we got pregnant within 40 days of getting married. The whole time I carried them, I felt like something was wrong. I just had a feeling we wouldn’t bring them home. 

    How are you feeling? Emotionally & physically? I feel great emotionally this time around. I don’t have a bad feeling at all about this pregnancy. If something is wrong, I’ll be very shocked. Physically I’m feeling great, too. 

    Any appointment updates? We have our first ultrasound the 25th, I’ll be 8 and a half weeks by then. 

    Any big milestones? Nothing yet, just hoping this baby sticks. 

  • Weeks/EDD? 5/3, 5w3d

    Previous loss(es) (share as much or as little as you like)? MMC discovered at 11 weeks (happened around 8) last October. 

    How are you feeling? Emotionally & physically? Physically good, emotionally I’m really looking forward to telling my two girls and hoping that this baby sticks so I can. This time around I’m also waiting to start a registry primarily because I don’t want the algorithm to pick up my pregnancy. I couldn’t stop getting ads after my MC last time and it was kind of awful. 

    Any appointment updates? First appt is sept 28 (9w). I am opposed to crisis pregnancy centers and everything they stand for but I keep thinking about going to one for a free ultrasound…

    Any big milestones?
