hi im wondering if anyone out there can help. im worried about my mother in law she is 43 and in 2005 had a little girl the same year i had my son. since then she has had 5 miscarriages, she stopped trying for a baby and has recently found out she is pregnant again. she had a scan last week and it measured as 9 weeks 4 days and healthy so far. im worried for her because she has told everyone she is pregnant again. what are the chances of her losing this one as she is about 10 weeks now. please help

also i am on the depo provera injection which ends next week and myself and my partner want to try for our 3rd and final baby, we feel so desperate to have this one that we get jealous over pregnant women walking down the street. i have heard so much about problems conceiving after coming off the depo and want to conceive straight away. anyone been in this situation with a good story to tell me to make me feel any better, im so down at the moment

Sorry I can't be of any help but didn't want to leave your post unanswered. The fact she's made it to 10wks is a good sign, hopefully all will be ok, for yourself aswell.
Best of luck xx

I'd say MIL's doing well if she's nearly through the first three months, but the scans will tell a lot so probably she'll feel safer once those are done. Hope it works out for you georgi. Sorry I have no experience of what you're on though.

You have 2 separate issues here so I suggest you post them separately.

Reaching 10 weeks is a milestone for your mil so things look good. What stage of pregnancy were her other miscarriages?
