I was just wondering if this was a normal thing in pregnancy, or if this should have been a better indication that something was wrong? I remember the time before I went into the dr.'s they had me give them a urine sample like usual, right after I got done I had to go again, so this time they were checking for a uti, although I had no symptoms. Then after the exam I had to use the restroom again. The nurse said my urine was clean, no uti, so she didn't understand why I had to go so much. I went and then I thought about it. It was only recently that I had that feeling..I was able to go about 3 times in a row in a half hour. This got even worse towards the end of the week (when I think my baby had died). Did anybody else have this? Is this just normal in pregnancy or is it possible that the baby had dropped down and was putting more pressure on my bladder?
I just want to make sure that I know what to look for in any future pregnancies. Sorry if I seem like I am analyzing everything, but I guess that I am.
Thank you Mistyx5 for my siggy.
Not symptoms as you described, but I was very sick and spotting almost the entire pregnancy. Yes, looking back, it all pointed to m/carraige but there was nothing that could have been done in my situation.
What I often wonder is in 30 years or so, will they be able to save these babies? Or be able to cure the infection I had or know sooner if a possible stillbirth can be prevented...
I feel the same way. I wonder if there will a cure. It is just so hard to accept that nothing could be done and yet I have heard on the news about them taking a baby at 22 weeks and she is doing ok. My cousin had c-section at 27 weeks, the baby was the size of a 23 week old, and now she is 2 yrs old, just very small for her age.
I just keep wondering if there is anyway to help others, so they don't have to go through this kind of nightmare. I hope that there is never a new member here on this board, I hope that I am the last one to go through this, but unfortunately I know that there will be more. I hope everyone knows what I mean.
It would be nice to pinpoint why this happens and to prevent it.
I am getting closer to starting to ttc again, so I keep wondering what a "normal" pregnancy feels like. I think mine was fairly normal, and then this happened.
Thank you Mistyx5 for my siggy.
Well, so far, I have had 2 perfectly normal pregnancies (God willing I have a day and a half left!). I can say that this pg is by far easier than the first one, I was less sick and much more comfortable and gained much less weight.
The 2nd angel baby pg was different. From about 8 or 9 weeks I was showing pink on toilet paper. It pretty much stayed that way until it turned into blood and a following labor. I was check 3 times and Dr. tested me and everything and found nothing until the last time I saw him and by the time the results came back, I was in labor and there would have been nothing they could have done anyway. My Dr. cried for us. I was also very sick to the point of fever and was on 2 different anti nausea drugs because I could barely keep anything down.
So looking back, the loss pregnancy was different but I would not have known that anyway because they always tell you pg's can be different every time and there are plenty of women who bleed throughout pg and still have healthy babies.
I pray you have another pregnancy soon and it is free of fear and sickness and worry.
