Congratulations on your pregnancy! FX for a sticky bean and a happy, healthy nine months!

whatwillbeewillbee :  I too am now pregnant, after suffering a missed miscarriage back in September 2017.  We found out at 12 1/2 weeks that our little stopped growing at 8 1/2 weeks.  We had undergone an ultrasound at 8 weeks and all was great so it was quite the surprise.  I underwent a D&C, and it was, the most awful experience both emotionally and physically I’ve ever been through. 

 

We are currently a little more than 7 1/2 weeks along now and had an ultrasound two days ago that looked great.  I’m cautiously optimistic and taking it one day at a time.  Thank you for sharing your story, I hope your pregnancy goes by smoothly and wish you the best!

I also experienced an mmc at 10weeks – baby stopped developing at 7.5 weeks despite a heartbeat – and had the d&c with anesthesia and it was still a difficult experience. I’m so sorry you went through that. The next time we tried we got pregnant immediately. I had a perfectly easy no scare 9 months and now have a perfect 19 month old son and we are on our first month trying for #2. I think it’s so important to share these stories. I had never heard of an mmc until it happened to me and I had no clue how common MCs were in general. Good luck to you with this pregnancy! Wishing you a happy healthy medically uneventful nine months!

 Just want to say that I’m so happy you have what looks like a mighty, sticky bean! Your experience with the MMC sounds so difficult and heartbreaking. I can’t imagine seeing a heartbeat and then it all falling apart. I had a miscarriage in December in the 6th week, but we never saw a heartbeat. It was still devastating. I’m now newly pregnant again after three cycles of trying post-MC. I’m terrified, although I also have a good gut feeling about this one, which I did not have last time. Your story gives me a lot of hope that things can actually go well in pregnancy after a loss. Sending you lots of good vibes for a healthy and boring 8 remaining months (or however long it is!).

Thank you for sharing this. I’m so happy to hear you guys are pregnant again. I just found out I am having a MMC on Friday and felt immediately angry and then Saturday and today I have just felt sad. I went and sat in a hot tub and steam room today to see if I can get the MC started. I know when it actually happens I’m going to be very upset. And if it doesn’t happen on it’s own soon I am going to use the miso.  I’m hoping once this is in the past we will also be lucky and we will become pregnant again. I’m afraid now, and I just keep wondering “what if it happens again”. I am one of those people that didn’t have a worry. I knew about the possibilities and that miscarrying is fairly common but I really thought we’d be okay. So now I’m for sure going to be worried through our next pregnancy (God I hope the next one is viable and that we will get pregnant)

 

I’m sorry you went through this and that the miso made this experience even worse for you. Hugs and I hope your current pregnancy is amazing and you have a beautiful healthy baby!

FX, congrats on your new pregnancy!!!!!!! Thank you so much for sharing – it sounds like we have similar TTC journey 

Pregnant August 2017 same as you, early ultrasound with baby dating a week small and strong heartbeat (6 weeks at what should have been 7), followed by missed miscarriage and awful D and C in October.  However wacked cycles and ovulated on a 72 day cycle afterwards.  Currently I am 8.5 weeks, saw the perfectly developing baby last week, but still scared shitless about a missed MC.  I feel your cautious optimism bee – MC definitely takes away from the ignorant bliss of early pregnancy.    Hoping to see you and your little sticky bean on the November board!!!!!
