What's Your Story? Tell us. / Re: Pregnant again after early loss

Hi :)

It does suck having complications this early. I feel like I will be holding my breath for the next few months..  So stressful! That's good to hear that there is some chance at 22 and 23 weeks tho. It's a bit reassuring for me. :) At the moment that goal feels so far away but I guess we will just have to take it day by day.

I had my follow up ultrasound yesterday afternoon, and they have now dated me a few days different. I'm now due the 18th August. Whats your bubs due date? :) We must be pretty close!

Bubs heartrate was 168 which they said was ok. But they didn't tell me about the cyst and what's going on there! They just told me that I will have to go to my follow up dr appointment to discuss the results. So I am trying not to freak out! My dr appointment isn't till Monday.  I was hoping they would tell me some more about it at the scan. I havent had anymore bleeding tho, so hopefully it's healing...

I am having a really hard time with it being school holidays, and watching the kids! My partner works long hours, and 6 days a week. So I'm pretty much trying to get the kids to fend for themselves a lot. That and a lot of tv. I do have my sister in law and mum in law to help, but not all the time as they are very busy. Only one or twice a week. My house is sooo messy and the kids are so bored. It's driving me nuts!  :( I feel bad for the kids too, that I'm not doing a lot with them. I haven't actually told them about the pregnancy yet. I've been too worried that things might go wrong. I've just told them that I have a cyst that's causing problems. I'm not really sure when to tell them.

I hope you find a sitter soon. It's so frustrating not having much help, especially with kids to look after.

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
