Miscarriage/pregnancy loss

Ooof ... probably pregnant again after sad, sad losses

I have a feeling I am pregnant again - will know for sure in a few days. This will be pregnancy no 6: we have one DS, plus 3 MMCs and pregnancy no 5 ended in a devastating loss at about 14 weeks after discovering the baby had serious problems. In the meantime, recurrent MC tests have identified that I have low fertility (I'm 40), so the miscarriages are being put down to poor quality eggs, which makes it hard to be positive :(

So all I can do at the moment is "listen" to my womb with hope and dread and brace myself for the usual outcome of early loss or if not then a totally terrifying first trimester.

A hug and giggle with my sweet little DS makes the losses much easier to bear, but at the same time, I so so so want him to have a brother or sister.

That's all, just wanted to say "Blimey" out loud to an understanding audience. I would so love another and can't give up hope yet.

Sorry to hear about your pregnancy losses.
I've had 2 MCs, 2 lovely DCs followed by an MC earlier this year.

Heartbreaking but after the grief you find the strength and determination to keep going..Hoping that you are pregnant again and for a successful, healthy pregnancy all the way through :)

It was 6th time lucky for me. Hope it works out for you.

I'm on my 6th pg too, with one dc.
I've reached ten weeks and every day feels like a month - but going through this is the only way to get closer to the dream. Let's hope we're both lucky this time Smile
