Well after getting positive ovulation strips for the past 9 days solid I thought it was about time I did a pregnancy test and its positive!!! I gave birth to my beautiful sleeping baby boy in November last year at 38 weeks. It was an umbilical cord accident. Heartbroken is an understatement, my world came crashing down. I would have given my last breath just for him to have taken his first! I have 3 other boys. They are my world. Me & the hubby decided to try for another baby as I have just have this empty arms feeling that will never go away. I got pregnant but sadly had an early miscarriage at 6 weeks in March! Today when I got my BFP I was so excited but I can't allow myself to be as im so scared. I can't even bring myself to make my doctors appointment in case I'm temping fate. Has anyone got any suggestions What I can do? Thanks in advance X

Do you have a rough idea on how far along you may be? You could start taking multi vitamins (will help the pregnancy but can also be of benefit to you). You could speak to the EPU at your local hospital about your concerns & see if they can't offer some reassurance. You could wait until past the 6wks point if it helps your confidence.
Above all else, try & relax. Be good to yourself. X

I have no idea how far along I am at the minute as I'm all over the place! I was charting my ovulation and it was only the always positive which made me test! I have also upped my multivitamin intake for the last month too! I think I'll give it a few weeks then if all goes well book into see the doctor. I suppose everything is out of my hands and what will be will be. Thanks for your advice KazzieM X

Hope everything is going ok for you? I lost my beautiful boy at 23+3 due to a cord accident 3 weeks ago, I completely understand that empty arms feeling and feel a need for another baby, I already feel impatient and unbearable fear at the same time. Glad I found a thread I can finally relate to.
