So I'm 6 weeks into my 3rd pregnancy. 1st ended in m/c at 10 weeks, 2nd ended at about 5 weeks. I've had the usual tests done with nothing showing up. So this time around I'm on baby aspirin and progesterone inserts (yuck) just in case. My HCG started off low (only 18!), but has doubled every 48 hours like it should, and I have an u/s scheduled for April 14th. I am cautiously optimistic but every little twinge I feel or every day my breasts aren't quite as tender, I just assume I'm miscarrying. I hope you guys are all having a less stressful time than I am!
I'm glad I found this forum!

welcome to JustMommies - and particularly the pregnancy after loss board!

HUGE congratulations on your pregnancy - I had two losses prior to my first successful pregnancy, and I hope that the progesterone & baby aspirin works for you! I'm on baby aspirin for this pregnancy & am now 28 weeks pregnant...

I'm Emma (26), have 3yo Gabrielle & am 28 weeks pregnant with Emersyn. In total, I've had 4 losses... 2 prior to having Gaby & 2 between Gaby & getting pregnant with Emersyn

Yeah, Welcome!!!! Your story sounds really similar to mine. This is our 3rd pregnancy too and so far #3 seems to be the magic number. I'm on aspirin and progesterone as well...although they did find a slight clotting mutation in my blood work.

This forum rocks. I hope you can help ease your worries here!

Welcome, I am sorry for your losses. I also had 2 losses prior to this pregnancy and I am now due in 24 days! Nothing was ever found in my tests either, my miscarriages were just put down to 'bad' luck.

It is a very stressful time being pregnant after a loss but I hope you find this board as supportive as I have and hopefully our tickers and success stories give you hope. The fact your numbers are doubling every 48 hours is a great sign. As for symptoms mine also came and went in the first trimester so it is normal so try not to worry and focus on your little one growing inside you (easier said than done I know).

Wishing you a H&H 9 months!

Congrats on your pregnancy and welcome to the board! I'm currently on my fourth pregnancy, which I have high hopes for. I think we all feel the stress - which is why this board is so useful. I'm glad you found it. Here's to a happy and healthy and uneventful 9 months!

My story sounds similar to yours... my first I lost at 10 weeks but didn't find out until 12 weeks (D&C) and then my second I lost just over 5 weeks. My doctor did nothing and didn't act concerned at all. I'm now 4+ weeks into my 3rd pregnancy and I'm on nothing but prenatals and lots of hope. I have no idea what caused mine but if my doctor isn't concerned, I'm really trying not to be concerned myself.

Welcome to this board. I just found it myself. Pregnancy can be so scary...

Welcome and congrats ! Your history is similar to mine too. Though I have had no testing done - just put myself on baby aspirin at the beginning. So far so good - I can't believe baby will be here soon. It does get way easier! - not that there aren't terrifying moments (I spotted one morning and thought I'd lose my mind - but everything was ok!)
Come here whenever you need to = we understand and are happy to offer love and support!

Thank you Kiliki for my first beautiful Siggie!

Welcome to JM and PAL! I think you will find all of the ladies here a great support system.

Our stories are similar too. This is my 3rd pregnancy...the first one was a missed m/c that ended at 11 1/2 weeks, my 2nd was 4 weeks and so far, this one seems to be going OK. This board is a wonderful place to talk, vent or just share...whatever. And if/when you feel comfortable, the Due Date Clubs are also great sources of support.

I hope this is your sticky bean this time around! I'm sending all my sticky vibes your way!!! Baby Cement to you!

My blog!

Welcome! I had 3 losses before this pregnancy. I took progesterone and baby aspirin as well. This board is great. It's filled with girls who understand all the anxiety and worry that comes along with a pregnancy after a loss.

Welcome and congrats!! I pray this is your sticky bean! As said in the other posts, the ladies here are fabulous, and you will find lots of support and shoulders to lean on when you need it.

I'm Jennifer (or Jen) and this is my 7th pregnancy, and I have two living children and five angels. I also have low progesterone issues, and used baby aspirin prior to getting pregnant with my daughter in 2008.

Congrads. This board is so supportive and the ladies are incredibly helpful. It is nice that everyone understands how you feel. I am also on progesterone. I have a mc in December and am about 7 weeks pregnant right now. The dr does not seem too hopeful about this pregnancy. I have to find my own hope.
Wishing you lots of sticky dust. My t&p are with you.
