Hi all. My name is Emily, and I am a 28 year old momma. I have been pregnant 3 times, with only one pregnancy ending with a healthy baby. My other two pregnancies ended with a miscarriage, or a blighted ovum to be exact.
The first m/c was in July 05. After one month of trying we were so excited to find out we were pregnant. At 6 weeks, I went in and the doctor only saw a sac on my u/s. My blood levels were extremely high, so he decided to waita few days to do another u/s. After a week we found out that I had a blighted ovum, which required a d&c to remove. We waited the recommended time, and decided to go ahead and ttc again. We were told that we would have a healthy pregnancy, and they were right
We found out we were pregnant in Feb 06. This pregnancy started off exactly like my m/c, but this time we decided not to get our hopes up. At 7 weeks we went in and to our amazement saw a flickering heartbeat. Logan was born in NOvember 06, perfectly healthy.
We decided to ttc again shortly after Logan's first birthday. We wanted them to be about 2 years apart, and were so excited to find out we got pregnant right away. We went in around 7 weeks, and even though the doctor said I was only 5 weeks and everything looked ok- i knew that we should have been able to see something on the us. 3 weeks later, I started bleeding, and in April of this year I had another d&c because of another blighted ovum.
We found out yesterday that we are pregnant again. I am not yet 4 weeks, so I am back at the point of wonder. It was a bittersweet moment seeing that line. I was so happy to see it, but also so worried because I know what the next few weeks are going to be like. I personally don't know if I can continue to go through this, but also know that I had a healthy pregnancy after my first m/c, so I am hoping my pattern will continue.
I decided to start this journal so I can keep an account of my symptoms. If this does end up a viable pregnancy or a m/c I can look back on it and compare it to future pregnancies. Also I won't be going to the doctor until I am 7-8 weeks pregnant, which means I probably wont be telling friends/family until then, so I need somewhere to talk about the pregnancy.
Thank you for reading, and yes comments are welcome
