  • I wouldnt say anything to your family until you get the results from your doctor and get past the point that you miscarried last pregnancy. But congrats! I hope it goes well!

  • First off... RELAX!!! You are prego if the line came up, so CONGRATS!!! I found out at 7 weeks and we were so excited that we couldn't keep it in but you might want to wait until 12 weeks just because you have had a miscarriage, but it's up to you... obviously no alcohol and cigs... eat healthy and just enjoy it.... I'm so happy for you!

  • CONGRATUALTIONS!!! :D How exciting! I do however agree with June_Mama09, my aunt went through a few miscarriages, wait til 12 weeks before telling everyone. It's an emotional time and I think doing it that way is a good precaution, that's what my aunt did. She has two beautiful children now. :)

  • Since you had a miscarriage make sure to bring that up to the receptionist making your appointment. They can probably get you in a little bit faster. Tell your ob about your concerns about having another miscarriage and he can do some blood tests. I had to be put on progesterone shots. It helped me a lot because I'm now in my 27th week. Congrats and good luck :)
