I had my MC at exactly 7 weeks in July, tomorrow I’ll be 7 weeks with this pregnancy. I’m having so much anxiety 😩. Reading y’alls positive stories is giving me some hope – many of you are getting so close to meeting your rainbow babes!

tommywantwingy :  I think stressing over progression this early isn’t good for you, try to step away from the tests, it could be a variety of factors that caused the test to be lighter. Don’t stress too much too early!

carolinabelle :  this is the hardest part to get through, trust me it does get easier, its slow but it will get better. Try to have faith that it will be ok, a majority of pregnancies end in a healthy, live birth!

candy08 :  yes, I appreciate that he is taking into account new guidance, I just want to make sure that I am not being pushed into something that isn’t what is best. But to be honest I am more scared of the external version (that is where they check you into the hospital and turn the baby from the outside with their hands) than I am of the c-section, maybe I shouldn’t have watched that video online.

tommywantwingy :  If you want a (psycho pee test) buddy, I’ve been lurking in this thread after an early MC in August. I’m due July 5th according to my apps and so I’m just sitting here analyzing every twinge, symptom, and pee stick progression. Driving. Myself. Nuts.

Your age/your partner’s age: 30/30

Baby #: 1

How far along are you/when’s your due date?3w5d due July 5th

What is your TTC/MC history? Had a CP back in August at 4w3d due to unknown causes. My OB won’t do any testing unless I’ve had three miscarriages.

Having any symptoms? sort of. My first symptom was a killer cold starting at 8DPO, and I rarely get sick so I thought something was up. Intermittent nausea, sore boobs, and cramping.

What’s the next milestone for you in this pregnancy? Making it past 4w3d. Then onto seeing a heartbeat.

Any coping strategies for dealing with the anxiety that comes with pregnancy after a loss? I’m trying to strike a weird balance between enjoying this pregnancy for what it is, even if it ends tomorrow, and not getting too attached because I let myself get way too far ahead for being so early last time. 

It’s not going well. 😉

What are you most excited about with this pregnancy? Getting out of the high miscarriage rate weeks. 

Any babymoon plans?? I’m thinking going north to Canada somewhere but nothing firm until we’re sure it’s sticky.

beeintraining :  awww it’s the worst isn’t it?! I’m sorry for your loss. It really does suck the joy out of everything now. What are you using to test? I have a box of Easy @ Home’s but after today’s light test I’m freaked out and thinking I should stop.

Welcome to the new bees and it’s so exciting that lots of the group are closing in on their due dates now. It gives the rest of us something to hope towards.

As for me, I am exactly 12 weeks today! Happy to reach the milestone, but my nausea has come back big time and I’m struggling to sleep as a result so I’m just exhausted rather than excited. I had bloods taken for Harmony 8 days ago, so should be getting the results any day now (fingers crossed for no abnormalities, please!). They did a scan before taking my blood and it was just amazing. Pip was wriggling around all over the place. We even got a really clear picture of his/her outstretched hand and thumb waving at us! I’ve got my nuchal translucency scan on Saturday and then a more detailed one on Tuesday, so will hopefully be an exciting few days. As long as we get good results, we’ll finally be telling our mums!

Yes, and we just had our NT ultrasound. Everything looks good and baby is doing well!

Doc said we would have to just wait until 20 wks. Which is fine by me as blood draws for me are torture. I have tiny veins 🙁

Hi Bees!

Things are rolling along here.  27 weeks and 3 days, had my GD test on Friday and am hoping it comes back clear.  We finally started our registry and things are starting to feel more real (as if my rapidly expanding stomach wasn’t real enough).  This time last year I was miscarrying, which is such an odd feeling.  That pregnancy felt very different from the start (and was very brief), so I don’t feel completely torn up by this strange anniversary, but it is an odd thing.

splishsplash :  Hope all comes back great on your harmony test! I had the same thing happen my Ms went away and then came back during month 4 worse then month 3! Luckily it went away by month 5. Prgenancy is so unpredictable! Hope you feel better soon!
