Readers Respond: Finding Out You Are Pregnant Again After Miscarriage

Responses: 23


Updated September 30, 2009

Please GOD let me have a little girl.

I've had a miscarriage before I had my son and one after. Now we're trying again. I'm really scared. That's why I don't think about having a miscarriage, I think about holding a sweet little girl in my arms.

Pregnant after miscarriage

I also had a miscarriage a little more than two months ago and am now 5 weeks pregnant. It is way too easy to waste time worrying and being anxious about everything, so I guess I am going to try to walk a more difficult road and be optimistic. I found out my first pregnancy failed when there was no heartbeat at the first appointment. So instead of being anxious about finding blood I am more anxious about finding a heartbeat. This time I have my first appointment set for when I will be at 7 weeks and anticipating the words, "good, strong heartbeat!"

Pregnant after a miscarriage

I had a miscarrage 2 months ago. I just found out I was pregnant yesterday. I'm terrified this pregnancy isn't going to go through. I can't stop worrying. I go to the bathroom and look for blood often. I'm a nervous wreck. I just hope God will let me have this baby.

Pregnant after miscarriage

We are barely pregnant, maybe 2-3 weeks, along after a miscarriage almost 3 months ago. I'm happy I found out early so we can get into the OB but now I have about 10 weeks to go of suspense. I want to be happy and through the roof with joy but instead I find myself being scared to death of another loss.

Pregnant after miscarriage

I am seven weeks pregnant after trying for six months after miscarrying in March. We found out the news on the month our baby would have been due. I am scared what I will see tomorrow. Will it be another empty sac or our baby? I am on progesterone injections every night and hoping this is our earth baby. Praying God will help me through in whatever happens.

Pregnant EXACTLY 1 year from loss

I am newly pregnant in 2009, almost exactly to the date from my first pregnancy which ended in loss (MM) in 2008. 10 months of TTC can make you question everything. My husband and I are excited and thinking positively although it's always in the back of my mind. We have decided not to tell anyone - at all, ever. So when I'm big as a house next summer everyone can draw their own conclusions. I have learned that this is not about us, we aren't the "baby shower, look at me" type and a happy healthy child is a blessing enough.

Expecting again

Over the moon about becoming pregnant 2 months after a missed miscarriage at 15 weeks. Still have worries and crazy thoughts like 'does my little boy in heaven feel like we are replacing him?'. I know it doesn't make sense, but all reason and logic left my life the minute they told me there was no heartbeat. I do have a lot of hope and joy in this new pregnancy but it is difficult to go from excited (about the new baby) to grieving and back again in minutes. Also, the inability to concentrate that appeared after his death compounded with 'pregnancy brain' has been rather entertaining. I can't focus to save my life!

Pregnant after miscarriage

I had a miscarriage 2 months ago. Last week I found out I am pregnant again! I have been completely terrified that something is going to go wrong this time. I want to just sit back and enjoy the pregnancy, but I can't stop worrying. Every time I go to the bathroom I hold my breath looking for blood. I don't know when I will get to the point where I'll actually be able to be excited and not fearful.
