BFP #8 (Child and losses mentioned) — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

BFP #8 (Child and losses mentioned)

I don't know if I'll be around here long, but I had my 8th positive test this morning. You can see my extensive history in my signature, but the short story is I'm 40, I have a 2 year old daughter and I've had 3 missed miscarriages and 3 chemical pregnancies. AF isn't due until Thursday, so this could still be a chemical. The only reason I tested was to confirm that I could go get an MMR vaccine today. (I guess I can't.)

I was supposed to be preventing this month. My RE wants more blood tests done and then we would discuss treatment options after that. He specifically told me not to get pregnant because I could end up having another MMC which makes me lose about 6 months each time. I avoided my usual TTC days (CD10-14) and had sex on CD9 and CD16. I'm guessing CD9 did the trick.

I don't know how I feel about it. Part of me is upset for potentially losing 6 valuable months, part of me thinks it will just be a CP, part of me thinks positive tests mean absolutely nothing anymore, but that tiny stupid part is still looking up my due date, etc. The rest of the parts of me want to slap that part.

Anyway, like I said, I may not be here long. I just needed to say this somewhere. I haven't told my husband. I didn't tell him about the last pregnancy until I had a successful u/s at 7.5 weeks. Sharing this news feels like crying wolf after a while.

Congratulations to everyone who is past the tricky first trimester. And also to those who are struggling through it. I wish you all happy ultrasounds.

RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.

Re: BFP #8 (Child and losses mentioned)

  • In case anyone reads this, it was a chemical pregnancy. The test was a squinter this morning. I wish I hadn’t needed to test for that vaccine. I guess I can get it now.

  • @carrieandr Oh, I am so sorry you're experiencing this.  I hope you are as okay as you can be - and that you take care of yourself as you're going through this.  And I hope the additional bloodwork your RE wants done brings some answers.  Hoping for a healthy, sticky baby for you in the very near future.
