I had a mc in nov 12 and am now 4 weeks pregnant. I am worried that i will have another mc and have been getting a weird feeling in my abdoman. I've looked on websites but nothing has eased my mind. Is there any mums out there that could let me know what i should and shouldn't b be feeling. I do have a 4 year old so should know but it has been a while since i was pregnant and obv i have had the unfortunate event of a mc.
Well I'm 15 weeks and for the first few weeks I had funny feelings too, in fact I didn't bother with a pregnancy test as I was convinced I was coming on.
I could really feel something going on there, not unlike period pains for weeks. In fact when it eventually stopped I panicked as I couldn't feel anything happening any more - you just can't win in the worry wars!
Congrats on the pregnancy and please try not to worry.
i had 2 mc in 2011 and when i conceived in 2012 all i could think about was having another, i was checking toilet roll every time i wiped for blood, i didnt dare do any exercise, i made sure i took all folic acid and vitamins didnt eat/drink anything i shouldn't and i was at a+e every ache or pain up until being able to feel him move (and im one of those people that has to be virtually dead before going to doctor). its very scary being pregnant after a mc, there were a lot of aches and pains mostly ligament pain that were all normal. i'm not as stressed out this time though so it does get better
Hi Crisihall12 congratulations on your pregnancy - wonderful news!!
I am in the same position as you - I had a miscarriage in Feb and got a BFP a couple of weeks ago - I never expected to fall pregnant again so soon after my miscarriage.
I am petrified!! I have an early scan on Friday to check dates and make sure everything is going okay - could you speak with your midwife to see whether you could have an early scan for reassurance?
I also have a 4 year old and when I was pregnant with him I was so exited from the start - no thoughts of miscarriage or anything sinister - this time all excitement has been replaced by fear!! I also have no symptoms other than a bit of tiredness - I'm willing the morning sickness to kick in!!
