Pregnant after a Loss

Do you have room for one more?

I was not going to post this intro because my PgAL mind is going crazy and I have been running through the what if's for three days..."what if it's a CP? What if I have a MMC and don't know?"....You get the drift. But, alas, I woke up today and took my fifth pregnancy test that was glaringly positive! And no bleeding/cramping/etc, so here I am, throwing all caution to the wind. Do you have room for one more?

A little about me: My name is Ruthie, I'm 23, engaged to a wonderful man. I have had four losses, and three pregnancies (short story is in siggy), so being pregnant at this exact moment scares the sh!t out of me, but I'm sure you all understand that! This was only our second cycle charting after our last loss, and I count myself as extremely lucky to be one of the few who got pregnant so quickly. Now here's hoping this baby is sticky! I don't have my first prenatal appointment until the 6th, and my doctor does not do betas, so I'm sure I'll be a wreck for the next week or so...

I'm coming to you straight from TTCAL where I'm leaving a bunch of awesome, wonderful and supportive women (but you knew that) who got me through the last three months. Without them. I'm sure I'd have given up and crawled under a rock.

So to my TTCAL ladies: I love you dearly and I have my FX for you that you all move over here ASAP. I mean it, I want the board cleared! 

Thank you for listening to my long winded intro, and sorry this is a P&R, I'm off to my internship. I will be back tonight, though.

  • Welcome and a huge congrats!!  PGAL definitely isn't an easy road emotionally.  There's times where you will freak out and times where you will be at peace.  Ups and downs all the time.  So glad to see you here and hoping the best for you and that you have a long 9-ish month stay here.

    Because of the great "Snow"vember of 2015, my medicated cycle was cancelled.  However, we were blessed with our little rainbow baby due on 8/14/15!  Baby J had other plans and decided to make his grand ole entrance on 7/4/2015!

    Surprise!  Our little girl entered this world on 12/8/2016 after her eviction notice was long past due.  Our little turkey baby turned into a snow baby!
