Hi, I'm new & don't know how to do this lol

Hello! My friend told me about this site and I want to try it. I just got a positive pregnancy test today, exactly 1 week before my missed period. The second line is quite dark. My husband and I were only trying for one cycle. I am pregnant right away. I have never struggled to GET pregnant, I get pregnant VERY easily. I struggle with KEEPING my pregnancy. I do have a beautiful 4 year old daughter who was a very easy, healthy pregnancy. Then I got pregnant again and I was bleeding often. The doctors kept saying I was fine, but a stronger ultrasound showed a baby in my left tube at 6 weeks. They gave me methotrexate to induce miscarriage of my tube baby. A week later, I came for my follow up and they discovered my second twin in my uterus. They had to do a D & C to take him/her out. It was a really traumatizing and heartbreaking experience. My next pregnancy after that was a miscarriage at 4.5 weeks... Now, I am pregnant again. I found out so early because we want a baby together so badly. My daughter is from a previous relationship. I must admit I am VERY nervous though. Everyone wants to give me advice, but their advice scares me sometimes. Like, "Don't stress! You'll cause a miscarriage!!" Um, that is like my cue to stress haha Also, my brother died of SIDS. I don't know if my mom experiencing that has anything to do with me, but I am just worried. I am scared. I am just praying to god for a healthy baby or babies. Smile

Hi! I don't want to say "welcome" because none of us want to be on this board but we are so we deal. I don't think there is anything that anyone can tell you that will alleviate/reduce your fears. This is a great place to be to voice your fears and hear from others who have been through similar experiences.

My DH and I started trying in Dec 2012 and on Jan 14 I got my positive result. This is our first pregnancy ever so we were super-excited it happened so quickly. Unfortunately on Feb 6 I miscarried. I was about 7 weeks. I am still waiting for my first period post m/c. I'm terrified for when we get pregnant again. But I am also eager to get pregnant again. I have found this board to be the support I needed to get through this terrible time.

I hope being here will give you the support you need.

I'm sorry to hear of your losses. Its nice that you found this board though I wish it didnt have to exist. I really hope this bean is a sticky one and you have a happy and healthy nine months. I know how nerve wracking it is to be pg after losses. I've had 4 now and being pg just gets scarier the more you have, at least for me.
