Hi ladies.  I am currently 19w1d after a mc at 5 weeks last June and a mc at 9 weeks in December.  

I am feeling anxious all the time.  I didn’t tell coworkers about my pregnancy until it became obvious and people started asking.  I finally allowed my husband to post a social media announcement last week.  

I keep thinking I will feel better after the next milestone, but I still feel nervous.  Any tips or coping strategies?  It’s hard to be blissfully pregnant when I saw a positive test twice before and it didn’t exactly end well.

livcee:  I am so sorry about your miscarriages. Luckily, I think you are out of the riskiest part of the pregnancy. I’m thinking about you!

bubbycakes:  I’m glad you are here! I’m sorry for your prior losses, but just a few more weeks left in the first trimester, then hopefully you can feel really happy.

I had my blood drawn for my beta this morning, and should get results back this afternoon. In the mean time, seeing the strength of the line increase on the FRER is making me so happy!

Does anyone want to start a new thread? I think we need it. I don’t really want to but I will if no one else wants to!

My update: 24w6d today. Had a fetal echocardiogram yesterday since my brother was born with a heart murmur. The defect they were looking for wasn’t there, but they did see another potential problem. The blood velocity in the aorta leaving the heart was a bit high, which can mean that there is a narrowing. But this is almost always paired with an enlarged left ventricle because it has to work harder to push blood through, and baby girl’s left ventricle looked normal. Also, because babies get their oxygenated blood from mom and not their lungs, the heart structure in utero is different in the same place the possible defect is, so it’s hard to tell if there is really an issue. Cardiologist said with a normal ventricle, there is a very small chance there is actually an issue, but I’ll have a follow-up fetal echo in six weeks to check it again. If there is a problem, she would need surgery as an infant, but then the problem should be fixed and she shouldn’t have any restrictions after healing. I have faith that there isn’t actually an issue, so I’m trying not to worry as we can’t know anything yet. Baby girl kept kicking the transducer hard enough to move it and mess up the echo. The tech kept asking, “how far are you? She’s kicking SO hard!!!” It was kind of nice to have outside confirmation that she is a hard kicker for her age! Before the scan, it was so strange sitting in the pediatric cardiology waiting room; it made the possibility of a sick child real in a way seeing a high risk OB never has.

arielmerms:  My high hcg levels are due to twins! They found 2 yolk sacs so far. I go back Friday for another sono. Now I’m really nervous. 

Has anyone had to be on blood thinners? If so, when did you start them? I’ve had bilateral PEs in the past so I’m concerned.

OMG it’s been a long time since I’ve updated! 

Quick update from me, 34+2 today and Baby boy is doing well!! Been going for weekly non stress tests bc of my MTHFR but all is good! The nursery is 99% done, I’ll update with some pics once I get an old dresser out of there. Starting to feel uncomfortable. Baby’s butt is all up in my right side of my ribs. Can’t believe I’m getting towards the end! Feels like forever but also a flash and we’re here.

I’ll catch up individually tonight! So excited for more BFPs!
