Just an update on me
Hi everyone. I pop in and out every so often. I lurk more than I post these days. In case you don't know or remember me, I am stefanie, 41 years old. I have six kids ages from 19 months to 12. Last march began the longest year of my life with my first miscarriage. That was followed by three more, the last being jan if this year. Nothing found to be wrong... Just "old eggs" and luck of the draw. We decided to not try any more. My last cycle began march 22 and ended the 29th. Cycles are usually 29 days. Dh did the deed one time on the 31st and we were not protecting as it was too early in my cycle. I shouldn't have ovulated for more than a week. Well low and behold I got a bfp! I was terrified fully expecting to miscarry. We had a scan last Friday at 7+1 and expected to see no heartbeat and behind behind growth as we have seen so nany time, my symptoms have not been strong at all and some days I don't even feel pregnant at all. Well the scan revealed a 7+1 fetus with a heart rate of 146bpm!! We are so happy but now I am in fear again. Some days I feel nothing and I'm afraid my baby had died. I worry all day long. Am I being silly? Do the chances if loss drop after a great xcan with strong heartbeat and right on growth? Ugh! I just want to enjoy this!
Here is my gummy bear

Congratulations on your scan and baby's nice heartbeat. I think the chances for miscarriage do drop once you see a healthy heartbeat. Not sure how far they drop though. I know I didn't really have any symptoms until around 8 weeks so you may just still be too early to feel alot of the symptoms other than being tired alot. I hate how hard it is to enjoy being pregnant after a loss. Is your dr going to do scans more often because of your history.

Yup, if your measuring to date and a strong h/b, your chances have decreased to less than 5%. Celebrate mama, this is YOUR TURN!!!! This little bean will be with with you for a very long time:smile:.

I'm sorry you are feeling so scared. But I know just how that feels. I did feel some better after the 12 week mark, but I don't think you really ever stop worrying until they are in your arms. Then you still worry about them, but just in a different way. I am so glad you got good news on your ultrasound! I hope you can enjoy little moments of victory like that.
