HI I'm new to this site but I have a question for any other women who have had recurrent miscarraiges.
I have had 3 mcs since may last year, 1st at 7wks, then 5wks, and then the most recent one at 11wks. I am now pregnant again at 7wks.
In my previous pregnancies I have had very little to no symptoms, but with this one since about 5weeks I have been so sicky, if i dont eat for maybe two hours I literally feel so sick until I eat something little. This can happen in the middle of thte night when i wake up or at anytime during the day. The worst yet was on the bus and I was totally unprepared, had no food on me so had to spend the whole journey thinking i was going to vomit
I am also super sensitive and grouchy and am finding EVERYTHING my partner says or does super irritating, but hes taking it very lovingly bless him and no too much to heart!
My boobs are sore and I am just soo tired all the time!
Like I said before, this is the first time I have really experienced symptoms like this, and im hoping it is a good sign and this is our sticky baby.
Im taking it as a possitive sign that little bean is doing well, so i was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and gone on to have a healthy baby.

Sorry for your losses.
I had all the symptoms you've described with my first pregnancy, & went on to have a lovely little girl. My feeling of sickness was constant, & the only way to kerb it would be to eat what I fancied/craved, & that would take the edge off.
I have only had one mc (2nd pregnancy) a month ago, & will agree that I had none of the symptoms I had with my first. I didn't even feel tired, whereas with the first I was in bed by about 7am in the first trimester.
Have you been offered an early scan because of your previous mcs? x x

thankyou so much for replying, as you can imagine, every llittle bit of reassurance is so nice to hear.
nope, they only offered me an early scan to date my pregnancy, the said that i would not be getting another one until the usual 11/12 weeks.
I'm sorry you have been through a mc aswell, one of the most draining physically and emotional things ever. I hope things might be starting to get easier for you now, mostly a feeling of emptiness to begin with. no other words to describe it really.
how far were you if you dont mind me asking? xx

I was around 5/6 weeks, but I swear with my first pregnancy I knew straight away, and I wasn't at all sure with this one.
Have you had your scan recently, and if so did everything seem to be ok?
Yes I agree, it is so encouraging to hear stories with a happy ending, to give you something positive to try & help reassure you a little. Me & my partner are ttc again, so trying to keep positive for the our bfp! x x

hi dollybow. sorry for your losses and congrats on your new pregnancy. felling the way you do is a great sign i have 5 children but have had 6 mc over the years the last one was in dec 12, im now 13 weeks pregnant again and with this one and my children i had the sickness and with the ones i mc i didnt. i think you have a sticky bean all the best. x

Im just trying not to get my hopes up but at the same time trying to be opptimistic, so feeling a little bit torn, also trying to hide my sickness when my big brother soends a lot of time with me is difficult, just not ready to start telling people yet, although my other half cant wait to start waving our scan picture at everyone as he insists he 'has a good feeling about this one'. Bless him, hes just so happy to finally see a positive scan result.
had my scan on monday, everything seemed normal, our tiny little bean with its tiny little heart beat , doctors seemed reluctant on offering me another scan between now and my 12wk scan, s i guess im just gunna have to wait it out nerve racking or what, especially as i miscarried at 11wks last time!
keeping positive is definately the way to go, so keep trying to thhink that way and i have my fingers crossed for some good news for you xx
thankyou so much for your message calee, i still find it incredible to think that complete strangers are willing to spend some of their time to reply and try and help put my mind at ease! so thankyou so much, it means a lot to me, hope to hear from you both again xx

I think its just nice to talk to people who are in similar situations to yourself, as you know that it is only these people who truly understand what you are going through. Also you can say the things that you want to say, & ask the questions that you want to ask without feeling judged.
I am hoping the next few weeks go quickly for you, ao you get to your scan. Please keep us posted with how you are getting on x x

I have my booking appt with my midwife today, so another little milestone for us . and yes thats true, no matter how many people try to comfort you, you can only ever think thats its all just words. but people on here really are going through similar experiences, everybody has different stories, experiences and worries so its great that everyone can come together on here.
il let you know how things progress xx

Hi Dolly Bow
Firstly sorry for your loss & secondly congrats!!
I was sick right the way through with my sons and the doctors used to tell me it was a good sign that they were healthy.
I lost identical twins in Jan this year and am nearly 8 weeks pregnant now from an early scan I had done this week. I too am feeling nauseas all day long but am fine when I eat for a few hours, although the past 2 days have started vomiting with it.
How are you coping with being pregnant again? as I am frightened of it happening again, and am just trying to switch off until I get to 12 weeks. However I still get pangs of excitement I just dare'nt get too excited which is spoiling it and the time trying to get to safety is dragging somewhat. Any advice?
Good luck Dolly Bow xx

i Had an early scan but onl because my dates weren't very clear, but little bean had a little heart beat, was so nice to see! first time me and other half have actually seen a living growing baby on a scan, it has always been too late
I hope so, it really seems to be taking it out of me, feel ready for bed by nine most nights!
with my mcs i had barely any symptoms, just a slight ickyness now and then, very slightly sore boobs, nothing else really, but this time it really seems to have hit me! and although it is an awful feeling its quite nice knowing that i can atleast feel some symptoms this time.
sorry to hear your sad news, ive always wanted twins, just one little bean in there tho, but thats fine with us
o god, absolutely terrified, like,all the time, like everytime i go to the toilet, or whenever i get the slightest tummy pain, everything just seems amplified.
I havent any other children so this will hopefully be our first-so i dont have any reliable feelings or symptoms to go with!
i feel the same, trying not to think about things too much, i have never ever starting buying things before but this time i get the feeling that something is right. my partner is super excitable over the whole thing but i just cant bring myself to get like that, but then i feel bad that i am bringing him down, i dont know, just gunna see how it goes i think, fingers crossed for you!! xx

i am having a scan in 5 days to try and find a heartbeat what im sure wil be found as evreything looked fine last time i had a scan i had symtoms with my miscarriaged but a missed micarriage you wont lose symtoms as the baby is still flowing hormones round your body so dont worry you should be fine i get cramps and start worrying what are your cramps like if you dont mind me asking ? when is your next scan ? have you had your antinatal appointment xx
28/03/2013 at 23:12
waiting on a date for my next scan, but should be sometime in the next 4weeks as i am 8wks now, had my first appt with midwife this morning. I was really hoping they were going to offer me another scan between now and 12wks due to my miscarriages but no such luck If i get really anxious im just gunna book a private scan to put my mind at ease atleast! £60 in exchange for my sanity is a good deal i think! lol
just really mild cramps very occassionally, like a little stabbing pain which goes away. with my first two mcs i had like very strong period like cramps for a good ten mins and then started to bleed. my last mc was alot more complicated but its a long story!
i feel sure i would recognise the pain but im just not sure and it kills me being worried all the time! how are your cramps? bet your looking forward to your scan but nervous as hell? you had midwife appt yet? xx

Hi everyone ,
i had a mc 6 weeks ago , 6 weeks later I'm 6 weeks pregnant!
Im very happy obviously I think the same thing is going to happen again naturally worried I'm trying to stay positive! I have been having some really bad pains in my ovaries I think it's my womb stretching or corpus cyst not sure been doctors who don't seem concerned at all it was more like a pinching stretching pain !! I hope anyone on here can share their story to reassure me?
I got paranoid this morning because my boobs weren't really sensitive anymore like they were is it normal ? I did another pregnancy test about fifth wee of the day convinced it was going to be a faint positive but no it was stronger than my other two it was a first response and last month when I had my mc my lines just got lighter and lighter I just knew wouldn't stick . However this pregnancy gave me strong lines right from the start . Not meaning to worry anyone who has faint lines a positive is a positive this is just what happened to me.
