After a month of being here at Jm I finally started roaming. and look what I found.
my question is I has a m/c 4 yrs ago at 12 weeks. I dont remember much. was a shock I was visiting family and ended up in a strange hospital. I dont know kinda fuzzy. when you read things or hear things they always quote" if this is your second preganancy" are they refering to full term pregnancy. or because I barely carried to my 2nd trimester dose that one not count?
If it's a doctor's office asking, I will tell them this is my third pregnancy, even though I only have one living child. My second pregnancy ended in m/c at 9 weeks. When I went in for my first appointment, the nurse asked me how many pregnancies I've had and I told her this was my third, then she asked if I've had any m/c's and I told her one and then she clarified that the m/c was counted in it being my third and I told her yes.
If regular people ask, I usually just tell them that it's my second as I don't want to get into the fact that I m/c'd, especially if I don't know them too well.

I count all my pregnancies too. This is my third pregnancy, and if asked at the drs then I always explain. But like Tami if a stranger asks I say its my second. I don't want to get into. If your looking at sites and they say things like you may feel movement sooner or may be in maternity clothes sooner if this is your second, I'd think your experience may be more like a 1st. You feel movement sooner only cause you've felt it before and know what its like, and your uterus probably wasn't all that big when you miscarried so it probably didn't get stretched out that much, though that one is hard to tell. But most of your experiences, especially those after the 12 week mark might be closer to a first pregnancy.

i have been pregnant three times - i miscarried twice and now have a little boy. when i was at the hospital to have james a nurse asked me if this was my first. i said yes, then she saw on my chart that i had had two miscarriages and she said "no, this is your third."
