hello I just found out I am pregnant with my second child and was getting really excited. I know that my periods are longer around 36 days and I ovulated around CD 24. We had our first u/s done two weeks ago and there was a gestational sac and a yolk sac. We had another done last week and same thing but no embryo the doctor told us she was 99% sure it is a miscarriage but wants to check my hcg ... More
So, I lost my pregnancy with baby #2... My body hasn't started to get rid of it yet, and dr. wants me to have one last ultrasound before I make a decision on how I want to clean it out... Basically only the sac was created, but I'm still struggling emotionally... Everyone keeps saying, "Well, at least there wasn't a baby", but it's still really upsetting...
So I’m currently pregnant with my rainbow baby (after losing two this will be my first). Since I have had a stillbirth I am extra nervous about this one. Both me and my fiancé will have to work ASAP but I know I will be terrified to leave the baby alone with even people I know. I have heard so many horror stories and it just freaks me out to think about losing another baby especially worrying t... More
I thought I was about 9 weeks pregnant because I was counting from the first day of my last period. I went for my first ultrasound and was told I was measuring just under 6 weeks. The doctor told me the yolk sac is abnormally large and the heart rate is low. She thinks it’s possible this might not be a viable pregnancy. She said she wasn’t as concerned about the heart rate as the yolk sac becau... More
I posted on here a little over a month ago that I had an early miscarriage at about 7-weeks. I miscarried naturally (didn't need to get a D&C) and my doctor confirmed my pregnancy test was negative 2-3 days after the miscarriage started. It's been almost 7-weeks since the miscarriage and I haven't had a period or any signs that it's on the way. I haven't taken a pregnanc... More
Unfortunately, I felt really sad knowing that we had a miscarriage. The doctor confirmed it before 7 days. I feel tired and exhausted in the evening time. But there are no signs of bleeding. The question is how much time usually someone waits and expect bleeding to happen naturally? I am scared of D&C procedure and medical treatment.
My husband and I recently found out we were pregnant with baby #2 via home pregnancy test. I told several friends and family. I was scheduled to have my confirmation appointment on Tuesday... but, I went to the ER last night for some spotting and was sent home with a diagnosis of a threatened miscarriage. According to my LMP, I would be 7 weeks tomorrow... but, my HCG levels were extremely low ... More
I am in my 8th weeks. When we showed to doc (informing there was one-time brown discharge not red, nausea but no vomiting), she said they can see the heartbeats on ultrasound but couldn't provide the heartbeat info. Per them, it seems like baby is not grown in the last one and a half week. I have been asked to come back after 2 more weeks and call immediately if I see red discharge. Should... More
Today I went in for my first US at what I swear to be 7 weeks and 6 days. I was regular with my period, tracking my ovulation, and know the first day of my last period. I have a 5 year old and prior to pregnancy with him I had a blighted ovum and had to have a D & C. Today I was so anxious and sure enough they do the US and we see a gestational sac and yolk sac but no fetal pole. I was ... More
I had a miscarriage of my 3rd baby a couple years ago. I felt like something was off because I had hyper emesis and couldn't even hold water down. I was in the hospital probably twice a week. In one of those visits we found that the baby died at 10 weeks. I had to carry it until 16 weeks to get a DnC. I was devistated but time heals all wounds, however lately ive been thinking of it a lo... More
Me & my fiancé accidentally ended up conceiving(I think). I never took a test I was going to wait until my period was late by a week that was going to be Sunday. I’ve been nauseous & have been having the same symptoms as my first son. However, I started bleeding this morning & while I was showering something fell out of me. I didn’t notice it until I was about to get out& when I... More
My mom just lost her baby girl, 6 DAYS before she was going to give birth. My mom had a nuchal cord is when the umbilical cord becomes wrapped around the fetus's neck. Symptoms present in the baby shortly after birth from a prior nuchal cord may include duskiness of face, facial petechia, and bleeding in the whites of the eye. Complications can include meconium, respiratory distress, anemia... More
I miscarried a few months back. I have pcos. I got my first period after last month it was pretty average. I was surprised to get one since I have pcos I had to take medicine to make me ovulate to get pregnant to begin with. I went a year without getting my period before I took the clomid. Well a month passed and now I got my period again. I ovulated and all. I was super excited but here I am n... More
One of my close friends just suffered a miscarriage that was very traumatic not only emotionally, but physically as well. I am currently 31 weeks pregnant, and am seeking advice on how to support her during this time without seeming like I'm flaunting my own pregnancy. For anyone who has had a miscarriage and is willing to share, what would have been helpful to you?
