im 8 wks pregnant after m/c 10 weeks ago.
dont think i could handle losing this one.
have 2 beautiful boys and sometimes feel that im being selfish for wanting more. if id of stuck at 2 i wouldnt of had this heartache.
im thrilled to be pregnant and am sick EVERY DAY but im still worried. ive seen the babies heartbeat but i did last time so im not reassured.
i know its all in my head and ive never been this sick. its going to take time.
will i ever relax and enjoy this pregnancy, has anyone else been through this!!!!

I got pg straight after my third miscarriage - ERPC on the 28th of August, BFP (after ignoring it for a few days) on the 17th of October. Beautiful baby boy born at 35 weeks on May 20th. I never managed to relax and enjoy my pregnancy, but it all went well.

Hiya, sorry to hear what you are going through, I have been there too before dd was born but didn't get preg as quick as you, I waited for 2 periods (if I remember correctly)as advised by my doctor.

I didn't enjoy my preg as much as poss either as was constantly petrified of things going wrong.

I am now 31 weeks preg (tomorrow actually) and for the first 20 weeks I couldn't get excited. I had some early bleeding and my doc (who I have changed since) was so unsympathetic, he said "well, if you miscarry you miscarry, these things happen".

Anyway, I guess you just have to take it day by daypoint. Try to relax and lets hope and pray it will all be fine xxx hugs xxx

I lost my baby twins at 11 weeks sad but concieved ds literally weeks later, i was sad and still grieving for the twins but also full of olve for ds. It was a hard confusing time.

Remember to look after yourself.

This is strange, I am almost exactly the same as you. I had a MC 13 weeks ago, and am 8 weeks pg now as well! I too have seen and heard the hb, but also don't feel "safe" yet, because I lost my last baby at 17 wks, so had seen it on the 12-week scan, and thought I was safe then.

I am waiting until as late as possible before telling anyone this time. I think i will be able to relax when I am past the point that I miscarried last time.

Good luck to you S&E'sMum. I know just how you are feeling, such mixed emotions.

SandE'smum - I had two dc's without problem. Two years later had a miscarriage and then got pregnant 2 weeks later like you. That dc is now 6 months old and gurgling away beside me at the moment. I freted through the whole first half of the pregnancy, and did not dare hope that the pregnancy was ok until the 20week scan, even then was a little nervous that things might go wrong, even though I had no logical reason for that to happen.

I hope that you and littlepeanut manage to take one day at a time, and not think too much about the "what if's" over the next few weeks. It is easier said than done. But I hope that all goes well for you both. Will be thinking of you.

hey meet your sister here, I had a miscarriage on the 31st of August and am now about 5 weeks pregnant so I quite literally got pregnant straight away.

I also have 2 lovely little boys too.

I really feel pregnant this time, before the miscarriage I was just suspiciously too well.

I have an 11 week old conceived under the same circumstances. I was scared every day of my pregnancy but it was fine. He did need to be delivered a few weeks early and I had pre-eclampsia but he's a healthy baby boy.

Congratulations on your pregnancy. Enjoy it!

Hi, me too- mc in April, preg in May, now 22 weeks and still scared! Check out the Knicker Checkers Anonymous thread for some great support and women who are coping with pregnancy after mc and all that it entails!

hi thanks for all your replies, nice knowing theyrs others out there.
i had my head down the bowl for the umpteemth time today and started crying because im a rubbish at being poorly but keep reminding myself its all a positive sign.
dh not happy though cos im not risking any BD until my scan and if quite honest it has very little appeal!!!
im feeling a bit more positive today but cant help saying if this one doesnt stick in every sentance.
let us know how u all get on. xx

I got pg with my gorgeous DS (now 8 months) exactly 10 weeks after miscarrying at 13 weeks. I felt really scared for a while but eventually felt more secure in the pregnancy. All the very best xx
