no more HB fears? DifferentDay Due June 2; 34 kids; Tennessee 3473 posts

I touched on this on another topic of mine but maybe you ladies can help a little more. Anyone else afraid that after a m/c you wouldn't see/hear a heartbeat for the next pregnancy? The thought of an u/s showing a heartbeat or not is sending me into full-blown panic attacks that are getting worse. It's like a fear that's completely grips my heart- I start crying, shaking, hyperventilating, the room spins and I get dizzy. With the m/c we saw the HB, 3 days went by and then no HB although no one would admit it, and then a month later it was confirmed there was no HB. I'm absolutely screaming on the inside bc I'm so terrified for lack of a stronger word.

Yes definitely we had had lost two babies one at five months you never get over it I even had problems buying things for this baby at six months even though we have been told to expect a long boring pregnancy whatever that is and that the baby is perfect it's still so difficult

Yeah I kind of know what you mean. I just had a mc in June and just found out I'm pregnant again. I fear every time I go to the bathroom that I'm gonna wipe and see blood.

how did you handle it? Just dive in and hope for the best? I'm sorry 5 months must've been tough as heck! - We lost the babies in June but it wasn't resolved until end of July. Not the best way to say it, but kinda glad I'm not the only one who feels like this. Just wish the panic attacks would stop though
