Hi everyone been Reading alot and have come across lotsa posts about people having mc's and worrying they might not carry to term again! Here is my story:

march 2006 I had a ds at 36+5 5lb 11oz

April 2007 found out I was pregnant was at 11+5 no medical management needed was horrible an devastating.

November 2007 found out I was pregnant again, was a little worried about what might happen. Mc at 6 weeks wasn't as upset that time. Stopped trying for a while thought it was best.

June 2008 started TTC again. January 2009 found out I was pregnant again! Was terrified! 12 week scan ok 20 week scan ok 6th September 2009 a beautiful dd born at 39+3 and she is perfect!

There is hope after mc's even if I got pregnant again I would be terrified still I was up until she was born and during labour her heartbeat kept dipping but she fought on! Don't give keep trying and u will get there!!!

Hope this gives you hope and the determination to carry on

I can add my story too.

My first mc was late on, not sure how late but doctors back then thought i was around 15 weeks.

I then had DS1 at 30 weeks weighing just 2lb. Had a rough time here so wont go into it, but he is fine and 8yo now!

When DS2 was 2 yo i had an early mc around 5 weeks.

I then met my now DH. The month after he moved in we found out i was pregnant, sadly i mc on his birhtday in dec, i fell pg right away and mc again at the end of jan, my next mc was march.

After this i underwent investigations but because i feel pregnant they just told me to take aspirin and fragmin injections (heparin) and DS2 was born after a rough time from 30 weeks onwards when my waters started leaking.

He was our second miracle he is 3 yo now and i have since had two mc's and undergoing thorough investigations of which i get the results next week.

I was determined to get there with DS2 and we did!

hi, it's good to read these encouraging stories. i've had four m/cs in a row. it's so hard to keep hoping. yet i do somehow believe in my heart that i will have another baby one day, if i can just find the strength to keep going. sometimes i can't actually believe it's happening to me - i look at my body and think, it can do all sorts of fab things - it produced my son without any problems, it's climbed the Himalayas, it's run half marathons - it can do all that kind of stuff, and yet it doesn't seem to be able to produce another baby. it's just so weird.

thank you franfoxy I've just had (and am still having a few issues physically with) my first miscarriage, and your story has cheered me up. x

Have been hanging around these threads for the last few weeks A lot of you who're here at the moment and sharing a similar experience will know that we found out at our private scan a few weeks ago that I'd MMC twins. I had a natural miscarriage exactly at 12 weeks. This is my first pregnancy and it's been a rollercoaster (but not an enjoyable one). Am hoping for the all clear on Friday.

Anyway the point of this post is today's my 36th birthday - I was my Mum's second pregnancy. She also carried twins during her first - miscarried one and then lost her son an hour after he was born. I gave my Mum a card today to try and thank her for all the love and support that both she and my Dad have given to me and my DP throughout this horrible time. I am very lucky to be their daughter. I will find the strength for DP and I to think of a positive future and I hope that the rest of you do in your own time too - if my Mum hadn't done that 36yrs ago you wouldn't be reading this now

MummyMcKT ah, what a sweet, lovely post.

Sorry you have had such a rollercoaster, I'm on one at the moment, but hopefully getting to the 'slowing down and pulling things together' stage!

HairyT I've been reading about your journey on various threads (I seem to veer between miscarriage/ante natal/conception and bereavement). I really hope things calm down for you soon - you've had a real time of it - try and keep strong. I look forward to hearing that things are going well for you in the future
