  • I miscarried at 7 weeks back in Sept 2008. It took me until July 2009 to get pregnant again. Not sure why it took us so long - I had no problems with the first pregnancy. Yes! I was worried with every little detail. Once I saw the baby on sonogram that helped but I really stopped freaking out when I could feel him moving. Everyone is different so you might not have any troubles getting pregnant again. After my m/c my cycles were all messed up! Relax and good luck!

  • It was a long time ago but my kids are 17 months apart and I miss carried in between. YES- absolutly I was scared to death most of the time when I was pregnant with my second child. However I am sure that was completely normal.

  • I had my 2ed entopic pregnancy February 12th and became pregnant a 3ed time in April. As told by the obgyn I was seeing I conceived to soon after having surgery on my fallopian tube and that once I miscarried this baby they would run tests to find out why I miscarry so many of my babies. I was told not to expect the baby to make it. Being told not to expect my baby to make it killed me. I waited month after month for my baby to die but hoped for a miracle. I just new I couldnt get attached to this baby knowing what pain was to come. It was at 38weeks pregnant that I just couldnt stand the pain any more of waiting for my baby girl to die. I got really depressed and had to be addmited to a hospital for my severe depression. One week later I gave birth to a very healthy happy beautiful baby girl!

  • I miscarried (12 weeks) about 4 months back and am currently 9 weeks prego. It took less than 2 months to conceive again, but we used contraceptives the first month because my OB wanted at least one period to help with dates.

    I think about it ALL the time, and have to make a conscious effort not to. I do feel it takes some of the joy out of being pregnant but I'm doing my best to stay positive.
