Hi everyone. Last year in July I miscarried my first baby after years of TtC. I had literally 2 spots of blood and when I went for a scan they told us we had lost the baby. Now this week 3 days ago I had maybe 2 spots of blood and today done a pregnancy test and got positive results. Could I be going through that again? Or could it be implant bleeding? Going to the docs tonight, will they know? I am so nervous

HI BooKitty, im sorry to hear of your last miscarriage it's no wonder your anxious. I had one last year too, no signs anything was wrong but had a scan and there was no baby. I'm pregnant again and have been having a lot of pain and some brown blood in discharge sorry tmi anyway went for a scan today at 7 weeks and all is fine . bleeding doesn't always mean a bad thing but definitely get checked out if your worried at least to put your mind at rest.

Thanks Butterfly. I had a scan and the midwife thinks everything is normal. A little cyst on my left ovary from where the egg was released and a little implantation bleed in my womb but nothing to worry about. Had what feels like cramping and a tummy ache for the last week and a half, never had that last time. Although I do have IBS and she said it could be my bowel which looked active lol. TMI....
Sorry to hear about your loss but so happy you are pregnant again. I am about 6+2 according to my last period. Looks like we are roughly the same.
It's so hard not to worry isn't it? And I want to punch the next person who tells me not to worry and take it easy... haha! if only it was so simple.

HI BooKitty, im glad scan went well and all seems okay. Apparently it can hurt from the ovary you ovulated from too. Hopefully the cyst clears up. Funny enough I've got ibs too and think this is leading to pain also as the progesterone slows down digestion. I'm still having pain hoping it will clear. I'll be 8 weeks wednesday. I'm struggling with nausea so hardly eating.
I know what you mean about people saying try not to worry and this is a different pregnancy, it is easier said than done. I'll just be glad when 12 wks are over. When are you due?
28/04/2015 at 14:13
well working with my dates I am due 19th of December, 4 days after my sisters birthday and 1 day before my mums husbands birthday lol. And also 6 before the fat man in the red suit turns up. lol. What about you?
Oh I know what you mean, I cant wait for the 12 week scan to be done and everything is still okay. I have another scan on the 12th may which should make me about 8 weeks.
Different pregnancy and different things happening. I had terrible morning sickness last time so I feel your pain, but I havent had any yet. Got ginger sweets in my handbag at all times just incase and ginger teabags lol.

Hi BooKitty (love your username!)
So sorry to hear about your miscarriage, but wonderful news on your BFP. We thought you might want to take a little look over here at our December Birth Club. There are lots of women over there who've been through something similar to you, we're sure they'd love to have you.

Hi BooKitty,lots of birthdays for your family in December, expensive and lovely time for you. You never know you may end up going when Santa comes to town. I think I am due to 9th December 2015, I should find out more tomorrow, I've got my booking appointment then.
That's good they are giving you one at 8 weeks, they say by that stage the risk is significantly reduced as its between 6 and 8 weeks that it is the most common apparently. I got quoted lots of statistics last year.
That's good you've not been feeling too bad yet, some people get no symptoms and some are terrible, mines changes daily despite struggling with nausea and pain, I'm glad in some way I feel like crap its more reassuring. Theres loads of us on the Due in December 2015 thread at all different stages so its nice to see how everyone is getting on. Hopefully the time will fly in for both of us. I hope your cyst doesn't cause you too much bother.

Hi bookitty and butterfly31, i too suffered a miscarriage last December and I'm currently 12 weeks and 3 days. Í worry all the time about another miscarriage, I cry randomly n then remember I got to stay positive for the new baby, I had my scan last week n everything was well, I had convinced myself there was no baby, incase I heard bad news. It's not right thinking like that.
I hope you two have a lovely 12 week scan and that everything is fine in your pregnancys xx

i think the worrying will never stop for those of us who have suffered losses. I'm 18 1/2 weeks now & still worry. I keep promising myself I will try not to but just cant. First when i started being able to hear the heartbeat on my doppler at home I said that would stop me worrying, then after the 12 week scan I said I'd try, then once I started feeling baby move... But even now if I haven't felt it move for a while I start to worry again... Always thinking the worst. I honestly think I will never stop worrying... But I have come to accept that & I understand why I worry so much & just picture the end goal... Seeing my beautiful baby & holding him / her in my arms & seeing my husband hold our baby that we made. That makes it all worth it. I do get very envious of women who just go through pregnancy full of joy... without a care in the world... Totally ignorant / oblivious to any worries / risks Because they haven't had losses to make them scared. Not that I would ever ever wish a mc on anyone... Never ever... Just wish I could feel like that too.

Hi Charrz91, im glad the 12 week scan went well, first hurdle over with. I'm sure it brought some brief relief. Hopefully the rest of your pregnancy will go smoothly. It is hard the stress and worry, it's hard to stay positive but it's one stage further. I had a scan at 7 weeks I was convinced we would have the scan and there would be nothing there but the sac but there they were and had a strong heartbeat. The relief lasted 20 minutes the I was back to worrying. I've got another scan next week I'll be 9 weeks by then.
Hi SW2, i totally get the worrying and thinking if I just see that or hear that the ill be fine but the worry doesn't go away. Every scan is a step closer but don't think I'll stop worrying until after snd maybe not even the . It is hard some people sail through with no issues and then just think why was it me, but I guess can't hink lime that as would drive ourselves crazy. That's good your 18 and a half weeks not long until second scan or have you had it?
30/04/2015 at 00:43
Yes butterfly I have my next scan on monday
30/04/2015 at 08:00
That good SW2, another step closer at least. Hopefully time will start flying in for you x

It is so nice and comforting to have everyones stories and experiences. especially as we are all at different stages.
It just goes to show how strong we woman are, we go through such terrible loss and then we do it all again, men would just give up. It is very hard to stay positive but we just need to keep thinking 'this is our time, this is what we are built for'
I felt like such a failure, as a woman, as a partner... but now I am super positive (with the odd day of worry thrown in there to keep me on my toes).
charzz - its definately not good thinking like that. but again, its so hard not to. I have another scan at 8 weeks and I am thinking that I am going in there and they are going to let me hear such an amazing strong heartbeat. no worrying. your baby is doing great and the odds of anything happening are so slim now. just look forward to that next scan. are you finding out the sex?
SW2 - how lovely you get to hear the heartbeat at home... and your nearly halfway there. are you finding out the sex of your baby?
Butterfly - when is your next scan? I have my booking on the 20th of may and they will give me an accurate date. my next scan is the 12th of may, a week on monday just after we are home from a trip to wales. hopefully it will relax me.
looking forward to hearing from you all. xxx
30/04/2015 at 13:26
Yes bookitty I definitely want to know the sex! I feel like it will help with the bonding if I know as I'm a bit behind on that due to all the worrying / not wanting to get attached in the early stages.
i will let you all know if you like?
30/04/2015 at 19:56
Hi BooKitty, my next scan is 7 may 2015 ill be 9 weeks them or if I go by first day of last period I'd be 9 weeks 6 days. My next after that is 27 May 2015. I'll just be glad when it's here as just stressing as symptoms aren't as bad as the used to be but I read the placenta might be partially up and running now so that might be why. Our scans are quite close together hope you have a lovely time in Wales it will be good to get away
07/05/2015 at 11:21
SW2 we defo want to know the sex..... and post a wee scan pic if you can. its all very exciting for you.
butterfly how did your scan go?
I've had a bit of a worrying morning, some spotting...called the early preg unit and they said just to monitor it and keep my appointment for tuesday morning. How im supposed to relax in wales I dont know. This is what happened the last time. still feeling sick and having to eat ginger nuts and tuc biscuits. got some antisickness from the doc so hopefully this is all a good sign still.... xxx

Hi BooKitty, scan went well today measured 9 weeks and 2 days. We got to see babies heartbeat and it was wriggling about which was lovely to see. They are happy with how things are progressing, which is good as it was a year ago today I had surgery after my miscarriage so good news today.
I'm sorry to hear about spotting. It's good you've still got symptoms as shows strong hormones, it will be stressful waiting for Tuesday. I'll have my fingers crossed for you that baby will be there bobbing about xx
08/05/2015 at 01:14
Hi bookitty.. Sorry to hear you're worried with the spotting. I know how hard it is not to worry but spotting doesn't have to mean bad news... Let us know how you get on on tuesday.
