Sorry I have been MIA for a while. I've been having a lot of anxiety about miscarriage, especially because of my previous loss.

I've decided to just hang back for a bit until my scan on the 24th, I'll be a day shy of 8 weeks then and I think that will help my worry a lot!

With my first pregnancy we told everyone immediately, all family and close friends new at like 4W2D. We announced on FB at 6 weeks..
This time around, we haven't told anyone. I have told one very close friend who I trust with my life but no family. The plan is to tell them after the scan, if all goes well. I will only announce on FB later though.

I've been wishing and hoping for hectic morning sickness, just so that I feel like everything is going as it should. Last time I felt queasy from 4 weeks but it went away and I ended up miscarrying. I know you can have or not have morning sickness and it's not related to miscarrying, but it just makes me feel better. I haven't really had any real sickness yet though, which doesn't help my anxiety. I've been feeling a little queasy but no puking.. hopefully it's still coming.

Anyways, I just wanted to let you know I am still around but just hanging back until my scan next week

I understand your hesitation! My mother and mother in law both had several miscarriages, so I was a wreck the entire first trimester with my son. I had no pregnancy symptoms other than sore boobs and tiredness (it was EXHAUSTION, but I contributed it to my hypothyroidism and also studying for the bar exam) So I was panicky the whole first trimester that something was wrong, and he is a healthy baby who is 13 months now. I know its easier said then done, but I had zero morning sickness and zero nausea, just tiredness. Keep the faith and take as long as you need until you feel comfortable announcing! Absolutely nothing wrong with that!

This pregnancy I have had tiredness, sore boobs, and a bit of constipation every now and again. I went in at 6w and saw the heartbeat. I still freak out, because I just don't feel pregnant aka no morning sickness or nausea. I do have some food aversions starting. We have told our parents and my husbands sister, and a few close close friends, but will not tell others until 12-13 weeks along when I tell work.


Try and stay positive! Thinking of you and hoping you have a healthy happy pregnancy!

I'm right there with you. I feel like I jumped the gun joining a DDC and now want to pull back...like it's going to have any kind of outcome on the pregnancy or something. The reality of loss burdens my heart and mind every day and the next 2-3 weeks cannot pass soon enough.

Aw well once you see a heartbeat the chances are like less than 10% if I remember right to MC. But I get you. I had a MC before my first and I was super petrified for like 12 weeks.

Also I thought I wasn't getting nausea either until I woke up in the middle of the night for something and it hit me hard. It's happened a few times. I must be getting it at night when I'm sleeping, which is amazing. Have you felt it anytime? Like even when sleeping? Like are you dreaming your nauseated?

Try not to worry until you have to!! I freaked out, like total meltdown, because I was bleeding actually quite a lot. I woke up one morning and it was dark blood and lasted a few hours. Then it stopped. Betas were fine. Some spotting/light bleeding can be totally fine. So don't freak out just yet! I know easier said than done.. Mine was about a week/week and a half ago. Definitely still pregnant.

Still waiting to hear final word from the doctor, will probably only hear tomorrow. At first she couldn't see anything in my womb but saw a mass on my ovary that was very concerning and possible ectopic. Later she saw a very small speck of a sac. She said either I'm earlier than I think (not possible) and the mass is my corpus luteum cyst that's collapsed, or the mass is the baby...

She sent me for an hcg blood test and said if the level is over 2000 she would be VERY concerned. I got my level back and it was just over 15 500

Basically on par with a 6.5 week pregnancy, which means baby is most likely on the ovary. Waiting to hear back, probably going to need surgery.

Omg that is crazy! I didn't even realize it was possible. I'm sorry girl. I am hoping for better news and maybe you won't need surgery.

Hey, so just thought I'd update here and give me official good-bye

I've been in and out of hospital since Thursday night with a suspected ectopic. They weren't sure if the mass on my ovary was a cyst from my PCOS or an ectopic. Anyways, eventually told today that it is indeed a cyst but my womb is empty... so they said it's a pregnancy of unknown location. They said it must be somewhere in my abdomen, but they are holding off on surgery for now. Either it will sort itself out and I will miscarry like normal, or they will need to go in and find it. It's been a LONG few days and we are so tired!

So this is my official good-bye I wish you all the best and a healthy and happy pregnancy

Oh my god I'm so sorry!! It's good this is being handled. Thank goodness! Ectopic can be extremely serious. I'm glad they are on top of it and I hope it's sorted super quickly because it must be super nerve raking to not know where the baby is.
