Pregnant for the 3rd time after 2 miscarriages

ok so i wanted this so badly after having two miscarriages for no apparent reason in the last 9 mos. when i looked at the test, i was thrilled! but this morning the worry or fear has set it. has anyone else felt this. i have had the blood screening to see if something was wrong with me, so they cant figure out why i miscarried. i know it is common but i just dont know anyone who has had back to back miscarriages...actually none of my friends even had one. i am trying to enjoy this one but just dont know how

  • Hey~sorry to hear about your two losses. Last year I had gotten pregnant w/ my 2nd (I have a 6 y/o) and everything seemed to be going great, seen the HB, the baby moving on the u/s~ but then I m/c'd. The babys heart stopped beating. I was devasted, it was something I had been wanting for awhile. Then 2mnths later I got preggo again, but lost that one as well, however, I was very earlier on. It was heartbreaking but not near as devastating as the first. Anyways, I'm now 37wks preggo. My little girl is due here anytime now. I got preggo almost 3mnths after my 2nd loss~ I was scared in the begining as well and didn't want to get my hopes up, but it as worked out. Stay positive, take it easy and try to enjoy. I truly hope it all turns out for the best. Congrats!

  • My sis has been trying for almost 3 years she will get pg and with in a few weeks have her period/ misc. She test all the time bc she is trying so hard to get pg. So she finds out right away when she is pg. I feel so bad for her and for you. There is medical issues for her. I myself have no medical issues that I am aware of have two boys and have had two misc and I am currently 13 weeks. It is scarry and frustratting not know ing why it happens. I am sorry for your loss and hope that you keep trying and have a baby and love that baby so much bc they are gifts from GOD. Good luck God be with you..

  • i have a feeling ur the prego chick that answered one of my q' here's to u...
    i misscarried once ot 17 and didn't kno i was even pregnant...when i figured the whole thing out i was completely shocked, and heartbroken...then at 19 i became pregnant and have a beautiful 2 y/o daughter...then just two months ago i became pregnant again with twins...was sooo excited and then completely heartbroken...i lost them both.
    i honestly dont know what to say...except for sorry for your well as good luck on this one.i think you said u are 10 wks??? not sure but if so, then i ues just hang in there for another 2 wks, and soon enough your misscarraes will be a thing of the past. if by chance (hopefully not tho) this time it doesnt work out then just hang in there momma...time can sometimes be a rough ride, but GOD knows when its time for you to become a mother. ask GOD about it, ill pray for you as well...sorry & good luck

  • You are not alone!! I have just come off my second miscarriage in March...the second in 7 months. I do not have any answers as to why I miscarried. I have two children and they have no clue as to why I lost them....just "bad luck" they said. I'm 7 weeks pregnant now and am so detatched. We saw the baby's heartbeat last week on an u/s but I still am cautious. My progesterone level came down slightly over a weeks time so they have started me on prometrium. We have only told my parents and my sister and I feel weird even talking about it, like I'm jinxing myself. My goal is to carry this baby to 8 weeks. If that passes, my next goal will be 10 weeks. If i get there, I'm further than I was when i lost the last two! Good luck to you!

  • First off, congratulations. What you feel is perfectly normal. I'm on my seventh pregnancy, the first six were all miscarriages and I was terrified at first. I have two daughters through adoption, so they keep me and my mind busy. Also, the fear lessens every time I have a good doctor appointment. Once I got passed the point where I've miscarried before I felt much better. Relax and enjoy your pregnancy.
