Congratulations on your pregnancy, and I hope you get the good news from your doctor soon! 🙂

I think early pregnancy is always scary, but probably even more so when you’ve had a previous loss. I’m currently almost 9 weeks pregant after an MC in early May (it was a blighted ovum so doomed from the beginning basically, but I didn’t find out until 7 and half weeks, and had a D&C), and am ecstatic but also pretty anxious a good amount of the time.

There’s a really great pregnancy after MC thread where we all voice our fears, reassure one another, and cheer each other. It’s a really great resource if you want to join after getting your confirmation! In the mean time, I’m sending you positive vibes for good numbers!

Honestly, I’m 14 weeks and it STILL doesn’t feel real most of the time!! It’s scary being pregnant after loss but I hope you can get excited about this and enjoy it. Congratulations!!!

After multiple pregnancy tests and three ultrasounds, I’ll be 22 weeks in a couple of days with a baby boy. He kicks me daily and let me tell you – It STILL doesn’t seem real.

First off CONGRATS!!! I’m with jny1179 it didn’t seem real to me either. It took a while before I allowed myself to get excited/connect with this pregnancy due to my previous loss.  Even after my beta results and two normal sono’s it still didn’t 100% hit me.  Once we found out the gender and I felt her move/kick is when it all sunk in for me. Don’t take as long as I did though, try to enjoy this!

CoffeeBeanKate:  Congratulations! I can only imagine how difficult it is to have had a loss and then to try not to worry about your next BFP. I got my first BFP ever this last Sunday, and my second beta test last night revealed my numbers are barely rising. I was told to expect to miscarry, and it’s pretty devastating. I will keep my fingers crossed for you that you hear a wonderful number! Try to enjoy every minute!

CoffeeBeanKate:  My baby is one month old and sometimes it STILL doesn’t seem real. Seriously. When I was still pregnant, sometimes I’d walk by a mirror or window with my big ol’ belly and do a double take. Congrats to you! It will gradually sink in (some) with time. Just take it one day at a time!

CoffeeBeanKate:  I still look at my rings as well LOL.  I expect this pregnancy will take some time to sink in for me too.  It must be hard allowing yourself to let it sink in as well… I’m sure that as you progress, and your pregnancy gets closer and closer to those less risky milestones it will become easier and eaiser to let it feel real.

CoffeeBeanKate:  I feel like you do. I have had 4 positive prgenancy tests this week (I love wasting my money on these things, haha), am vomiting and nauseated, and I just can’t believe that I got pregnant. I’m so nervous about somehting going wrong because I feel like the whole thing is too good to be true — so there’s got to be a catch, you know? This is my irrational reasoning. But, like the other ladies said, we’ve got to try to approach this whole thing with optimism. I don’t go to the doctor till next Thursday — eternity!! — so I won’t even know how far along I am till then (very irregular periods, so LMP is kind of useless).

Anyway, congrats, and fingers crossed that your results come back strong.

CoffeeBeanKate:  Thanks! I look forward to seeing you on there 🙂 I get it, I didn’t let myself really get excited (or let my husband) until after 13 weeks- I guess I was trying to be cautiously optimistic. And then I got all worried before the 20 week scan, thinking there just HAD to be something wrong, like a worst case scenario. After the scan, when everything was fine, I was so mad at myself for thinking that way, and dragging my husband down with me. I suppose we do what we have to to protect ourselves from heartache but for real, just try not to worry and ENJOY your pregnancy! I plan to be more positive early on if I get pregnant again in the future. Hope all goes smoothly for you!!
