im pregnant again. it's been 3 healthy babies since my last loss, but that will never change the anxiety i feel in early pregnancy...just need a place to be a mess.
I've been here a few times and have come today for support. I just found out I am pregnant yesterday. It was unplanned and I am in shocck. My shock is quickly turning into fear. I have had two miscarriages and two healthy babies. My husband is so hung up on money fears that he could care less how stressed I am. I have Lupus and APS which has caused my miscarriages. I just need some support and some people to talk to. So, hello :)
This is my 7th pregnancy. I have one living child. All my other angels were lost between 4w and 11w.
Today we went for our first u/s and there’s a baby. It has a heart beat.
Baby is measuring small. I should be 6w4d by LMP, 6w2d by Ovulation. Baby is measuring 5w6d (+/-2days; 30mm).
Baby’s heartbeat is slow. One measurement was 81, next measurement was 83. Everything I have read states that the heartrate should be much higher -- at least 100.
I want to be excited or happy but all I can see are the flashing signs in front of me. I ran across a medical study that said that there’s a 60% fetal demise rate for heartbeats under 110 at 6 weeks. I hope I’m wrong. Can anyone help me with stories of low initial heartbeats and everything being ok?
I got a BFP today and instead of being super happy I am TERRIFIED. My miscarriage back in December really messed me up. I honestly don't know how I could handle another loss like that. I should be about 4 weeks... still super early. Still plenty of time for an early miscarriage... after I get to the second trimester I will be a little more at ease, but that's the middle of August... it's going to be a long couple of months...
I hope this one sticks. I really really do... one of my best friends from high school actually found out she's pregnant today too, so we will be due right around the same time. I already have another friend from high school who got pregnant the same time I did last time and so now I'm going to have to see all the pictures of her new baby and think about how I should be holding my baby too... I really don't want to have to do that twice.
Hopefully luck is on my side this time around. *crosses fingers*
I guess I'm not one of the "lucky" ones. I've been pregnant 6 times, 5 of them miscarriages. We went today at 6w4d and not only was there no heartbeat, but she couldn't visualize the fetal pole, even with the transvaginal u/s. Yolk sac was there but that was it. I'm going back in next week to check the status but I know what is coming.
