What's Your Story? Tell us. / Pregnant again after early loss
« on: January 08, 2018 at 03:58 AM »
So, I am only early on in my pregnancy (9 weeks). I am pregnant again after an early loss, 6 months ago. Really wanting this baby to get here safe and sound. I have been having complications already, and I also have a history of preterm labour, IC, and IU with my last two babies.

Last week I ended up in the emergency department, sure that I was having another miscarriage, with bleeding and severe cramping. At first they told me I was having a miscarriage, and then they gave me an ultrasound, which showed baby growing really well! My HCG levels were also very high and they said bub has a great heartrate. The scan also showed that I have a cyst which has ruptured and was causing the bleeding and pain.

I was put on bed rest for two weeks, to help stop the bleeding and cramping. I have a week left to go. I haven't had any more bleeding which is a relief, and I have another ultrasound in 2 days time.

I also have some fibroids, which my dr is keeping an eye on. With my last successful pregnancy I had very large fibroids on and around my babies placenta, and it caused bleeding and growth problems.

I feel like this pregnancy has already had a rocky start, and I am just hoping to at least make it to 24 weeks. Then my next goal is 28 and so on. My last two successful pregnancies I had preterm labour at 19 weeks and 32 weeks. They were able to hold off the labour with medication and bed rest, and I delivered them both at full term,  to my relief!  So now I am trying to be positive and rest as much as I can to give my bub the best chance.

Anyhow, sorry for the essay!  :) Hoping to get some support. And give support as well
