I'm due 21st October but super stressy about early pregnancy loss after a chemical pregnancy in September.

Fingers crossed for sticky healthy babies for us both! ❤️

I'm due 20/10/2020 based on LMP. I'm terrified of losing this one though. I had a missed miscarriage at 9 weeks back in June and a chemical in December. So I'm anxious as anything!

mrslockhart2289 Thu 13-Feb-20 20:56:14

@marauder1994 that's the day before my due date! How are you feeling? I'm driving myself crazy googling symptoms. I've had a positive on a digital today but still can't switch off!

It says early October, but I think there's a range of dates on there.

Feeling okay - felt nauseas this morning and I'm knackered. I've been having cramps on an off all day so I started getting worried bout that. It's super hard after a miscarriage to be positive.

I can't access that other group/page. My app won't let me sad

My test today

Hi All,

Can I join? BFP last Saturday, the week we were due to go for our first fertility appointment - due 21/10 as well!

Haven't told DH yet - we have a day out on Saturday so I am going to do it then. I have been pretty anxious as I had a MMC this time last year and it has taken a year for this BFP so fingers crossed it goes well!

zoomies1 Fri 14-Feb-20 11:55:28

Its especially worrying because I had loads of symptoms really early last time and virtually none yet this time.
I am trying to enjoy this bit in case the nausea hits soon!!

marauder1994 Fri 14-Feb-20 11:55:36

Yeah of course! I know how you feel. I had a MMC in June at 9.5 weeks and it was horrendous. Especially after seeing the heartbeat the week before etc.

I can't help but be anxious this time round. My OH knows and he'd be devastated if we lost this one too. So much am he'd probably wouldn't want to try again..

zoomies1 Fri 14-Feb-20 12:19:55

Thanks @marauder1994 and so sorry you had a similar experience!

I didn't want to tell DH until I thought it was unlikely to be a chemical so I pee'd on another stick this morning - a clear blue digital and it seems to be where it should be so that's something. Its nice to have other people who understand.

marauder1994 Fri 14-Feb-20 12:23:59

I panicked coz my clearblue digital was at 1-2 when my beta HCG was 338 haha. But it ended up changing to 2-3 the very next day. I'm still going to wait for it change to3+ before I even get a little excited.

Hi all congrats to all for your BFP. Can I join? I'm 6+5 with a due date of 4th October. It's my 4th time being pregnant, I've had 3 MC's last year. It is taking us forever to get the baby number one. Because of the previous MC's my pregnancy is being consultant led. We've had a viability scan this Monday gone, and we've seen a little heartbeat 💓💓. I'm excited and terrified at the same time.

marauder1994 Sat 15-Feb-20 08:54:40

@SoonToBeMrs91 of course you can join! Congrats on the BFP! Xx

TFC90 Sat 15-Feb-20 09:05:09

Eeeekkk! Can I join? I feel like I'm putting on my big girl pants and moving up the forums... First post on the pregnancy threads instead of conception!

According to the NHS website I'm due around 21st October but I only had one full cycle being off the pill so I don't really know what my period cycle length is...

That's one of the reasons I'm worried about this positive I've gotten. It's baby #1 and we only started trying a couple of months ago. I was due AF Monday according to my last and only cycle which was 26 days. It's now Saturday so 5 days since my missed period and it's only yesterday that I got a faint BFP on a FRER. ICs still show squinters that don't even show in photos....

So so worried it's going to be a chemical, had some cramping yesterday but no blood which I've read is normal as your uterus starts preparing to s t r e t c h!

Praying it will all be okay as it gives me an October half term due date... My mum works in a school and lives a few hours away. She's already telling me how upset she is that she's not going to be around whenever we have kids, especially as it will be her first grandchild.

Haven't told hubby yet either, I want to be sure it's not a chemical, but I also want to tell him before he gets his fertility test results on Monday because I know he's worried!

Sorry for the long post but that's my life story 😂

Sadie95 Sat 15-Feb-20 09:28:39

Hey! I'm due 25/10, got my BFP Thursday clear blue normal and digital which said pregnant. I have also been doing IC's since and getting squinters, hoping this baby sticks and not a chemical 🤞🏻

Bananaloaf88 Sat 15-Feb-20 09:34:14

Hey guys can I join!

According to LMP i'm due on 22nd of October.

Very scared. Last year I had a chemical and an ectopic which resulted in the removal of my right tube. Every twinge and pain is causing me to freak out! Luckily I will be offered an early scan due to my ectopic at 6 weeks.

Main symptoms at the moment is feeling a bit sicky, sore boobs & sore lower back.

marauder1994 Sat 15-Feb-20 09:41:15

@Bananaloaf88 I have practically the same symptoms! I'm anxious too due to a MMC at 9+3 and chemical in December.

I wish I could just fall asleep and wake up when the first 12 weeks are over!

Bananaloaf88 Sat 15-Feb-20 09:46:32

@marauder1994 I was just thinking this today! I wish I could just go to sleep and wake up for my 12 week scan!

TFC90 Sat 15-Feb-20 09:56:58

I'm so anxious, because I've heard that you can often have a chemical pregnancy for your first... like it's your bodies way of having a practice run!

Have you all told your other halves yet?

zoomies1 Sat 15-Feb-20 10:22:57

@SoonToBeMrs91 that must have been lovely to see!

Hello to all the other newbies! It’s nice that everyone is so close in due dates and THE FEAR IS REAL!

I’m telling DH tonight. We are going to cirque du soleil and then for dinner. The hardest thing is coming up with reasons for not drinking until I say it!

I’m still freaking out a bit at the lack of symptoms. So different to last time (but that didn't end well so perhaps that’s no bad thing). They are coming though. Boobs feel weird, minor cramps occasionally and the nausea is gradually arriving.

Bananaloaf88 Sat 15-Feb-20 11:01:18

@TFC90 I told my OH the day after my first test. After everything last year I can't keep it to myself. He had to watch me being rushed into surgery too with the ectopic so it wouldn't be fair to keep it, but I needed time to process it myself.

marauder1994 Sat 15-Feb-20 11:06:13

I told my OH the day I tested. He would have been upset if I'd have kept it to myself.

Loopieloo93 Sat 15-Feb-20 11:15:55

Hey everyone!
Found out on feb 6th I am pregnant with my 1st... was not TTC so has come as a little bit of a shock! I have PCOS and have not had any contraception for 2.5 years.
At the moment (very!) sore boobs and on and off light cramping are my only symptoms.
According to my LMP due date is 4th October (which would make me 6+6) but according to apps it’s 20th (4+4) so don’t really know which to go by at the moment!
Everyday is feeling like a week and the anxiety is so real right now but just trying to get through it best I can!!
It’s nice to know there are so many others around the same kind of stage and we can all share experiences together! smile
