Heathly pregnancy after a miscarriage?

13 answers
I had a miscarriage in 2007. The baby had stop growing at 5 weeks and by the time an ultra sound was done I was 10 weeks. A D&C was done at 12 weeks and I haven't been pregnant since until now. I took a test on Saturday and it came out so positive that I'm sure you could have seen it if you were blind. I have been waiting to hear back from my doctor to get into see him and have an ultra sound done right away. But I feel so sick all the time and everyone tells me that it's good. That means everything is normal but I'm still very scared. Every little pain or feeling I get I freak out about. Has this happened to anyone else? Am I just waiting for the worse to happen or do I have a real concern? I kept the test and I keep looking at it to make sure there really are two lines on it. I know i sound nuts but I'm terrified of losing this one too.

That is a very understandable fear. Most women fear losing their baby even if they haven't had a miscarriage. I understand where you are coming from completely. In 2003 I found out I was pregnant for the first time and didn't find out it was twins until I was losing one of them. That was devistating but I focused on the one I still had. Then very shortly after I had my daughter I got pregnant while on the shot. Since it causes your cycle to stop I didn't know I was pregnant until I was losing that baby as well. It was hard. I didn't get pregnant again until 2007. I was so scared with that pregnancy and it seemed like everything went wrong. I had high fluid levels, I had gestational diabetes. But my baby was fine! So I hope this gives you hope and confidence that everything can be ok. Good luck.
Dont worry. Many women have miscarraiges. Sometimes for no reason at all. I had one last year. It stopped growing, like you , at 12 weeks but i didnt find out until my 16 wk appt. It was very hard to go through. But im pregnant again, i am now 16 weeks and everythings going great. I know how you feel. Every little thing scared me to, every little cramp or even feeling good scared me. I had some bleeding between weeks 6-9 but it was just implantation bleeding. So try not to worry that much even though i know its hard. Just think positive because i really think how you thing affects how you will feel. 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarraige but because you and i already had one i thing everything will be good!! just take care of your self and eat well. Theres deff good chances that you can have a great pregnancy with this one! let us know how ur doctors go
Worrying about having another miscarriage is completely normal. But its also normal to have a perfectly healthy pregnancy after one too. I had a miscarriage. In 2007 and in 2009 got pregnant with my son. The pregnancy went great and now I'm pregnant again with our second child. This time I didn't know until about 3 or 4 months and didn't see the dr until about 5 months and everything is going great. Try not to worry and stress to much its not good for you or the baby. Just take care of yourself try to eat healthy and if you smoke cut back or quit if possible. Good luck and I hope everything goes well.
hunny we are in the same boat. i just had a loss in april of this year and im pregnant again.. feelin sick is actually a good sign... it means the baby is producing hormones and is healthy... well thats what my doctor said. im freaked out as well.. cuz ur story is like mine the baby stopped growin at 5 weeks.. its nothin we can really controll its jst the way the baby develops.. no matter what we think its not our fault.. we cant freak outselves out cuz its not good for us or the baby. jst take things slow and easy for now.. hope i helped even jst the littlest. =]]-ness
I have also had a miscarriage this year and now I am pregnant again and due in Nov. Everyrhing scared me too after losing my firt I was so upset but I was blessed with a little girl and everything is going good. Some people told me that is was normal to lose your first child especially if it runs in your family like it does mine, I will keep you in my thoughts and I hope everything goes great this time around!! Please don't worry and get upset about things it puts alot of stress on the baby and you! If you want to talk more I am always here!! take care, Hope
*Everything and first sorry typo!
I had a miscarriage when I was 16.. I knew I was pregnant.. When my (ex)bf found out .. he started beating me up ... And I had a miscarriage. I haven't been able to get pregnant until now.. I'm 11 weeks and 5 days. I have been really worried about losing this one.. I know my first i wasn't ready.. but I'm 21 now.. by the time the baby is born i'll be 22. My bf now and I are very happy.. and I get worried about losing this one.. cuz i dont want him to be sad and something happen to our relationship as well. I go to the doctor on monday to hear the heartbeat for the first time. I'm a lil nervous and excited. But i know exactly what you're going through. I've been sick a lot.. and it scares me.. and sometimes when i feel good it scares me too. So yeah.. I hope this helps. and i wish you the best of luck!  ~Amy~
I had two miscarriages in 2006, Once with twins and once with a single baby. I then had a semi-healthy daughter in 2009, She is doing really good, now I am pregnant again. Due in May. I was told that my body cant handle being pregnant and i will never have a child. Well guess what, the doctors were wrong. I have a healthy 1 yr old and I am having a healthy pregnancy. I am not getting sick like i was with my first but I can feel that it is going great.
Thank you all for your answers! You give me hope that everything will be ok. I got to the doctor tomorrow morning and I will for sure let you know how it goes! Thanks again.
I went to the doctor on wendesday and heard the heart beat. I got for an ultra sound next week.
