I had a late miscarriage in July , I was 21 weeks my water broke early due to an infection. I was advised by doctors that on my next pregnancy I will be monitored more frequently especially my cervix , if it opens or shortens before 3 months then I will need a cervical stitch.
Is 4 months now since the miscarriage and I just found out that I am pregnant.
My partner is happy but I'm having mixed feelings happy and worried at the same time . I'm trying to be positive so I can enjoy the pregnancy but some days I find it hard. Any tips please?

Congratulations flowers

I'm in a very similar position to you - I had a late miscarriage at 21+3 due to incompetent cervix that I didn't know about. I will definitely need a cervical stitch in future. There was an infection too but it was the cervix dilating that caused my waters to break and the infection was secondary. I have just (today!) found out that I'm pregnant. Both pregnancies were IVF. I am also very happy and very anxious so I await any advice with interest.

I was pregnant last year and had a miscarriage just before my 12 week scan. Me and my OH were devestated, we decided 2 months later to try again. It seemed like a good idea, but once I found out I was pregnant again I became an absolute mess. I couldn't stop crying, I felt like I was going "mess it up again". I wouldn't let my OH touch me, I was inconsolable because I was pregnant again. I could tell he was really excited about the pregnancy and that made me feel even worse. My point is everyone feels different emotions about things, all of those are valid. Unfortunately I had another miscarriage and won't be trying again for a while. But I know when I eventually do try again, I will do the best I can and just take each day as it comes.
