I know most of us here are TTCAL since obviously that is what this board is called but I'm just curious how many of you have had a problem free & healthy baby after a miscarriage? I know two people personally who had a perfectly uneventful pregnancies and heatly babies after a miscarriage.
I guess I'm asking because I'm just having anxiety about my next pregnancy.
For the most part, yes. I had an SCH bleed at 11 weeks. I was on bed rest for a few weeks after stopping some pre term labor at 30 weeks. She was also born with a heart condition and needed surgery at 5 months old. But, I consider it a very good pregnancy and a healthy baby. She was born after 4 losses.
I am also very curious about this. I know a lot of the ladies in the Sept/Oct DDC's have had a loss/losses before and then have gone on to have healthy pregnancies afterwards.
I know all the statistics of miscarriages / missed miscarriages/ etc. and my Dr. telling me how it was just a fluke...etc. etc. etc. None of it makes me feel 100% great and I am still worrying that maybe I have some sort of an infection that caused me to miscarry, what if my eggs are not as healthy or the sperm wasn't the best...I am now researching supplements we could both take to help the egg and sperm so we have a better chance.
I had a m/c in June of 2011 then I had one AF then in August 2011 I got a BFP and gave birth to a healthy baby boy in April 2012. I had basically a healthy and problem free pregnancy. I did have a really bad stomach bug that started labor at 33 weeks but labor stopped and he stayed in until I was 39 weeks. So it is definitely possible to get pregnant quickly after a m/c and have a problem free pregnancy.
I had a m/c April 2008, had one AF and got pregnant early June that same year and had a perfectly healthy pregnancy and baby March 2009. Had another m/c August 2011, had one AF and got pregnant again end of September/early October 2011 and had another healthy pregnancy and baby June 2012. It can happen, I know the wait is hard and the loss sucks, try (easier said than done) to keep faith in knowing that it has happened for many.
I do not have any children yet but have read many stories on JM about women who had miscarriages and then went on to have perfectly healthy pregnancies and babies. My doctor says that is very common as well. Just hearing my doctor say that really gave me hope. It is still a scary thing we are all going through but it helps to know many of have been here before and now have happy healthy babies. Hang in there!
I'm a little afraid of jinxing myself by posting here, but maybe with enough knocking on wood, things will be OK... I consider myself one of those people who had/has successful pregnancies after loss. 6 years ago when we were TTC#1, I had an early chemical pregnancy. We then went on to have my son, and that pregnancy was perfect and uncomplicated (well, I went into preterm labor at 34.4 weeks and he was born then, but he was totally healthy and there was never any explanation for the preterm labor). Then a couple years later we got pg with #2, and I went full term with her and had no problems at all during that pregnancy.
Last year we started TTC#3, and I had 2 losses--a blighted ovum at 7 wks and a missed miscarriage and 9 weeks (after a hb was found). I'm now 14 wks pregnant, and other than a little bleeding around 7 weeks, so far things have been OK (knock on wood, knock on wood). I am a lot more paranoid this time around after my last 2 losses, but I have a doppler at home and check for a hb maybe 2 or 3 times a week with it, and my scan at 12 weeks looked good, too. So I'm hoping that I'm now one of those women with a successful pregnancy story after loss.
My pregnancy with Savannah, about 5 months after my 1st m/c, was as uneventful and problem free as anyone could have hoped, despite the fact that I had a (then undiagnosed) gene mutation impacting blood clotting. This pregnancy I haven't been as lucky, but other than the SCH nothing else has been an issue so far.
Statistically, most women go on to have healthy pregnancies after losses so try not to worry too much (impossible I know).
We lost our little girl at 17 weeks back in December. We are currently 14 weeks pregnant (tomorrow) and everything looks as healthy as can be. I, also, hear a lot of stories of women going on to have healthy babies after a loss. I do have a lot more anxiety this time around though.... But the worst of it passed when we saw a healthy baby.
