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?

I think they all count. This is my 4th but my will be my 3rd child. You have to read the post to see what it is about. Some are referring to kids and some to experiences during pg. Hope that helps.

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 think that a pregnancy is what it is and it doesn't matter whether you had the baby or not you were pregnant.

I always count all my pregnancies. This is my seventh pregnancy. I have had three miscarriages.

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.

beans - your baby has the most gorgeous head of hair!!!

I always say that this is my 6th pregnancy but i have 2 children.

I think even if you were only pregnant a short time it is still important as your body went through changes because of the little life that was inside you.
