11/30 PGAL Check-In

Figured the previous thread was getting a little long.  If you are pregnant after a loss, check-in here!

Re: 11/30 PGAL Check-In

  • So this is my first check in, I had a check up today which was reassuring in some ways (I got to hear the heartbeat!) and less so in others, I apparently have a septate uterus. It is strange because in none of my previous ultrasounds has it been detected. Tomorrow I'm off to see a specialist because my doctor says it's a little weird but not to worry (good luck with that, haha). I made the mistake of googling which I shall not repeat. I'm at 8w5d and get to have another ultrasound at 10w so I can't hardly wait. As I am AMA, have epilepsy, previous losses and now today's developments I'll be seeing my doctor every two weeks so at least I'll get to hear that wonderful heartbeat a lot. Good luck to everyone else with their appointments and scans!!

  • First check-in. I'm so paranoid about every.little.thing. It sucks because I can't enjoy this pregnancy yet. I'll be seeing my OB on 12/28 for a heartbeat check and possibly an ultrasound. I'll be 9+4 then (or 8+3, if going by O date, which my OB doesn't). Last time I lost the baby at 7+1, so pretty much from that point on I'm gonna be even more paranoid. I'm hoping the next four weeks will go by super fast with all the holiday crap we have going on.

  • The maternity clothes thread has got me thinking. Anyone worried about pulling out maternity clothes then possibly putting them back.....sooner rather than later. I gained 5 lbs after my loss so my clothes were already snug. My u/s is in 2 weeks but I have a month to get past the point I was with my loss.

  • @mrsmommya I pulled mine out early last time and having to put them away was heartbreaking - especially because I missed a few pieces and ended up finding them and putting them away weeks later. That was like reopening a wound. I'm holding out as long as possible this time.

  • My first doctors appointment is tomorrow and my anxiety is starting to creep in. Woke up in the middle of the night last night in a panic. Trying to stay calm and remind myself that this is a completely different pregnancy and nothing about my last loss informs this time around, but it's hard. I just want the doctor to tell me it's all ok. My OB doesn't usually do ultrasounds till about 10 weeks but I'm really hoping they will let me schedule one before the holiday as we are going to be staying with my parents and there's no way I'm going to be able to keep this a secret while I'm there.

    I am SO happy for you ladies and your healthy beautiful scans and I am thinking and praying for you all always

  • I feel absolutely horrible today. I'm hoping this means good things (with my mmc I never got beyond feeling "a little off") but it still sucks. My first US isn't until next Friday which is hard but I'll be super busy at work until then so it should keep me occupied. Glad to hear some good news check ins here and keeping my fingers crossed for everyone that has appointments coming up!

  • @mrsmommya I was having the same thought today. I thought I might try to buy some maternity clothes today with all the Cyber Monday deals, but then I was worried that something would happen and then I'd get a box of sad reminders on my porch. Ugh. I'm super ready to get out of first tri.

    I don't know how I'm going to get through work the next few weeks if MS keeps knocking me down! I can hardly eat anything, and what I do eat randomly decides to stay down or come up, so I'm never sure what's going to work. It's not even that I'm glued to the toilet puking, but I can't predict when something won't stay down and I feel crappy the rest of the time. I literally stayed in bed and slept all day today. No way I can do that again this week. On the one hand, it sucks. On the other, I'm grateful for the fact that this baby seems more determined to hang out and make me miserable. 

    Glad to see some of the scares turned into good scans! I hope everyone has a better week and that the scans continue to bring good news!

  • We've been doing good. I look forward to our next appointment on the 9th where they will get a due date nailed down. I know I ovulated about a week late as my last period was a CP and we got pregnant again right after that. I am slightly concerned that things are going to take a turn for the worse but I need to keep reminding myself I still have symptoms so right now I am pregnant. My husband keeps reminding me that I'm fine babies fine everyone is fine :smiley:

  • @mrsmommya I get mine out everytime. It sucks to put them away...but I've really just started living in the moment. I am sad that last pregnancy I bought dd a "big sister" shirt, and have no idea where I put it!

    I am 8w1d today and that is further than either of my losses (5w6d and 7w5d).m, however the longer of the 2 was a mmc...so I won't feel better until our appointment next Thursday.

    However I've been feeling absolutely terrible. My nausea seems to be getting worse, boobs hurt more than ever, I'm exhausted and I'm already getting migraines (which I only get when pregnant). Symptoms are so much stronger than with dd....I pray that is not some sign of twins, because that is my biggest fear haha

  • Feeling really sick. And scared. All the latest losses here are really scaring me. I'm terrified. People keep telling me that the crazy morning sickness is a really good sign but I just can't hear it. I keep telling myself I just need to make it to my therapy appointment next week and maybe I'll feel better. I just hate not knowing how things are going in there.

  • @LaurenAsh23 I also got dd a big sister shirt....it just hangs sadly in her closet for now. I am thinking after my ultrasound in two weeks I may venture towards the maternity storage. We will see.

    Hugs @MamaBish! Can you email your therapist this week to tide you over until your appointment? I know you were considering asking for an earlier US - do you think you'll do that? I wish this was easier or there was a magical way to know that our little beans are safe and sound and growing. Much love and positive thoughts to you. ((Hugs))

  • @MamaBish  Agree with above.  Maybe you can get a earlier u/s to ease your mind.  I asked my doc today if I could have an extra at 10 weeks and they were totally fine with it. I have my first at 7 weeks (2 weeks away).  It definitely eases my mind having smaller stretches during the same time period of my loss.

  • I dreamed last night that I lost the baby. So naturally I'm freaking out now, even though I'm having no signs of such a thing happening. The slightest spotting I was having stopped altogether 2 days ago. But this small little 30 second dream I had is really making it hard to be postive this morning

  • @BostonBaby1 Man, that is a lot for one person to deal with!! I really can't imagine. Praying for you!!

    Well I've got my second ultrasound this evening. I should be 10wks 4days but last ultrasound I measured 6.5 instead of 7.5. I have some lengthy cycles so hoping that's the cause of the smaller growth. Plus I like this July group, and a date change would take me into June! Hoping for the obvious - hearing the heartbeat again too. That's what I'm most nervous about. Ugh!! I second all of you that wish this was so much more transparent.

  • Hugs to all of you having a hard time!

    I am 8 weeks 2 days today, and my MC was at 8 weeks 6 days last time. So I will be happy once this week is over!

  • @BostonBaby1 I'm glad your therapist mentioned that your emotions are appropriate, because they definitely are! It's a lot to manage and deal with. I am all the more grateful for the time and effort you spend supporting everyone here! So we are very happy to be there for you as well. FX for everything going well this week. 

    @TiffRox81 I say we keep you here even if your due date moves to June :) 

    @winnie1122 have you tried Diclegis? sounds like your MS is rough 

    @MamaBish It makes sense that it's really hard to wait and not know what's going on... The other posters had good suggestions (extra us, etc..). I so wish I could find a nice crystal ball for us all to stare into. For now checking in here to take it day by day seems like an excellent option, even though I know it's not as good as knowing! 

    BostonBaby1AL_TwinCitiesMamaBish
  • @TiffRox81 Even if your due date moves, stay! I'm fairly certain (very certain, actually) that even though my technical due date is July 1, with twins I'll deliver much earlier- maybe even earlier than June. (I hope not!), but I'm sticking around here no matter what. 
    BostonBaby1SerpicaAL_TwinCities
  • I'm 6 w 3 days, getting closer and closer to the time I lost my last one at 7 weeks (mmc.) the good new is I'm already really nauseated (thank goodness for DIY diclegis!) and have sore boobs and I'm tired. And I haven't had any spotting, just two moments of pinkish discharge. So I'm feeling really good about everything. My first ultrasound is on Dec 7th, 6 days away. It's so hard to wait. I'm nervous but hopeful. Today, I am pregnant.
    BostonBaby1AL_TwinCitiescarrieandr
  • Thanks ladies!!!

    @TiffRox81 I agree that you should stay here if this is where you are comfortable. It's not like the BMBs are locked. Wherever you are comfortable is what matters.

    Sending so many positive vibes for comfort and good appointments.

  • @BostonBaby1 Thinking of you today, stay strong!! We are here for you!


    I had a great scan yesterday, heard and saw the heart beat. But today I'm back to being nervous. Until I pass that 8 week mark when I had my loss I'm not sure I'll be completely ok. I had lots of dreams last night that I was having a loss too. I'm real tired of those. Trying to not stress and keep busy for the next couple of weeks. Postive vibes to all you ladies! I'm hoping this week is better for us all!

  • Hey guys. I'm 8 wks 1 day. Had an ultrasound at 7 weeks, and blood work done last Thursday. Normally it only takes two days to get the results back from the lab and I haven't heard anything back so I'm guessing no news is good news. My last MC was around 6 weeks so I'm feeling hopeful this time around. I still don't feel much nausea... Only once in a while. I'm hoping that's nothing to be worried about, a friend of mine went her entire pregnancy with out even a tiny bit of morning sickness, maybe I'm the same?? Good luck everyone!
    BostonBaby1MamaBish
  • @Serpica I haven't, though I'm considering calling my doc and asking if she has any issue with me trying the b6+unisom thing, because I'm struggling! I also feel like I'm just being a big baby because I'm not puking all day long, just consistently in the morning when I wake up, but I feel like I'm constantly on the verge of losing my insides, especially if I stand up and walk around. I know lots of people have it so much worse and I've been trying to suck it up, but bleh. Going back to work today was unpleasant. 

    Thinking of all of you today!

  • Another little bit of brownish discharge when I wipe. I know it doesn't necessarily mean anything but it's so scary. At least I'm still nauseated and tired. Can't wait till my ultrasound on Monday.
  • @iamtheoracle Hugs to you! I know how scary that can be even when you know it's "normal" and "nothing to worry about" Hang in there!!

    @winnie1122 Sorry you're feeling so crappy! Hoping you get some relief soon!
