Pregnancy after a loss. Nicia22 Due April 14; Japan 3 posts

Last year I lost my first pregnancy at 8 weeks. It was a shock after seeing the heartbeat at 6 weeks. I had no symptoms but discovered the loss when the heartbeat couldn't be located at almost 10 weeks. I had a D&C after waiting two weeks for it to happen naturally.
Now, I am 14 weeks pregnant. I've seen this baby moving with a strong heartbeat just last week but I still find myself on the verge of panic. Sometimes I have a hard time remaining positive. If I feel slightly different from one week to the next I worry. My next appt. is Nov. 6th and it seems forever away. Have any of you experienced the same? I'm trying to remain positive but sometimes its so hard.

This is my sixth pregnancy and hopefully will be my second baby.
I know the feeling. It SUCKS.

Try not to worry too much and think positive thoughts. Hope both of you have full, healthy pregnancies. :)

It was the same for me twice and I was reserved but excited to fingd out I was pregnant this time. Please try not to worry. Your little one is resilient and will make it. I'm 20 weeks and 3 days so I know it is possible to happen after a miscarriage.

I am on my 4th pregnancy. My 3rd ended in a late loss. Found out at 19 weeks we lost baby boy just after 16 weeks.

I completely understand your worry. Now that I'm past where we lost the baby, and have our own Fetal Heart Doppler, it makes a world of difference.

I don't think I'll be completely worry free until this baby is either at the stage of viability outside of my body, but still not completely worry free until I'm holding my baby in my arms.

I have always had a hard time remaining positive and having faith after disappointment. I think that is the lesson I need to learn. I'm due in April which is the month I lost my first!
