OMG I'm pregnant......4th time lucky? Positive thoughts needed :)

So; I did a test this morning - it said POSITIVE! I am in shock.

I've had 3 miscarriages (in less than 1 year) all around 6-7 weeks, the last being May '12 - I thought I'd never fall pregnant again. 10 months on I am!

So, I tried acupuncture, no dairy, Maca supplements, daily baby asprin (not for long though), healthy eating, no booze.....yada yada. Been for numerous tests which have all come back fine, I have no issues allegedly - it's all been bad luck.

So, at 42 years old maybe this is my time....?

Advice please ladies - should I take the baby asprin again each morning? Anything I should avoid? Anything I should do/take...?

From a very happy yet slightly nervous Flawless grin

Congratulations! I haven't heard of downsides to baby aspirin (pre-existing contraindications aside). My clinic puts everyone on it from egg collection onwards.

No idea about the baby aspirin, just here to say congratulations!

congratulations, fingers crossed for a very sticky bean.

Dont know anything about baby asperin, maybe have a chat with your doctor? I guess the advice I would give would be take it one day at a time. And remember today you are pregnant, dont worry about tomorrow. Im 11 weeks pg after suffering a stillbirth and two miscarraiges, I really hope this is the one for you. Good luck.

Congratulations OP. I've also had 3 mc's and at the advice of consultants I take 75mg of aspirin a day (even though not pregnant) and if / when I get pregnant again they would like me to inject Fragmin daily too.

Could you see if you can get an emergency Dr's appt to ask for progesterone pessaries to give you an extra boost?

I was 4th time lucky! And then 5th time lucky not long after that. Some days I still find it hard to believe that these two wee boys are really mine!

In both pregnancies I took 75mg aspirin a day, on the advice of the consultant.

Good luck, I hope this is your time.

I've not heard about Fragmin - will enquire - thank you!

I was like you - 3 mc and am 43 now. I got all the tests and did the blood work. I am now 10 wks. I asked specialist if I shod now be taking baby aspirin and he said the tests showed your blood or issues around coagulation were never a problem so taking aspirin won't make a difference.

I don't think it would do any harm bit it's likely that your previous mcs and this pg has nothing to do with how thin your blood is,,,
