On Pregnancy #2, worried because I lost my 1st baby.

Hi everyone,

I was hoping to find someone who has went through what I have. In June of 2008 I was 19.5 weeks pregnant, and went into labor with my daughter, Amarah. Because it was so early, she did pass away. The doctors are unsure of why I went into labor. They are thinking either a partial molar pregnancy, or I had an infection and it got to my uterus, but they are still unsure, even almost 3 years later.

I am almost 8 weeks pregnant now, and I am so afraid the same thing will happen. The doctors want to start me on progesterone shots at 16 weeks, and possibly stitch my cervix if it starts thinning. So far this baby is doing good. Heart rate is 164, measures 8mm. My cervix is looking good so far. Even though everything is good now, I still can't help but be so afraid. If anyone has experienced any of this, even anything regarding progesterone shots or the cervix stitch and could offer some advice, that would be great!! Thanks!

 Im so sorry for your loss, we lost our daughter at 16w and never found out why.  It has been the hardest thing I have ever gone through, I still cry for my baby girl.  My heart aches for her.

I am now pregnant again and it was very scary getting to that point again.  AND I still worry even though I am now over 21w.  Just try to relax and enjoy every second you have with this new life growing in your belly.

HUGS and Prayers.  Feel free to message me if you ever want to talk.

 I'm so sorry for your loss. I had a 1st trimester miscarriage so I can't realate with a 2nd trimester loss. I could only imagine how traumatizing that would be! Congratulations on your new pregnancy! I think typically, once you get passed the stage you were at when you lost the baby, you will start to feel a little more comfortable with things. Just try to relax (I know it's hard!) and enjoy this new life that you are carrying. ((HUGS))

Giving you a bump. I know other members have had similar experiences.

I'll keep you and your little one in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you all so much :) My doctor is being very proactive, and even wants ultrasounds every 3 weeks, so I think that will ease me some what also. I have a fetal doppler too, but I won't be able to hear the baby until 12 weeks. I have an appointment on the 17th, so hopefully the doc can hear it with his doppler :) Thanks for all the prayers and support :)

I'm so glad your doc is staying on top of things. It helpes tremendously--and is so reassuring--when a doc is attentive and proactive. Stay strong--and I'll keep praying for you!
