Hello Ladies... This is my first time here. I am 8 weeks pregnant today. I had a miscarriage Aprill 22nd of this year and i am really scared that it will happen again. I have gone for my first ultra-sound and they saw the heart beat and everything looked fine. I am just REALLY REALLY scared that something is going to happen. Evryone around me is soooo excited (especially Daddy) and i dont want to let them down. Is there any advice you ladies can give me to just help me threw this?
Popping in from Jan DDC
I would like to be the first to welcome you Beck to Justmommies...everyone here is really great
(Beck is a friend of mine) and I ame here to support you in anyway i can and i'm sure the girls here will to
Welcome and congratulations, Beck! As far as helpful advice, I think that the best thing is to just take things day by day. It's so easy to just sit and worry all of the time after having had m/c's, but it's a shame to not be able to really enjoy being pregnant, too.
Once I reached 10 weeks, I rented a doppler monitor to use at home. It only costs $20/month, and I'd listen to the heartbeat a few times a week just to ease my mind and reassure myself that the little baby was still doing fine Only thing to be careful about with this is that you don't want to drive yourself crazy using it all of the time, and also sometimes you won't be able to even find the h/b until 12-14 weeks, depending on the doppler model.
Best of luck, and again, congratulations on your pregnancy!
Another Bec here and another July DDer here! (We should start a club!)
Congratulations! The only advice I have is to know that there is nothing you can do to change what will happen. I know that doesn't always make it easier, but once you realize that worrying does nothing except harm, maybe you can let it go and start enjoying your pregnancy.
