Pregnant after Miscarriage Toni1 Due July 7; Rhode Island 7 posts

I am expecting july 8, 2013 and while I am very excited I cant help but to be nervous/anxious. 5 Years ago I was pregnant...went for ultrasound and had blood work and all that done.. couple days later get a phone call from doc saying he thinks baby has trisomy 18.....I was only 21 still young so I was freaking out..stressed myself out pretty bad. Long story short I had to get the test done where they stick that long needle in your belly to take out fluid, I was so scared it would hurt they had to do a ultrasound before they stuck the needle in to see where the baby was, Well needless to say baby did not have a heartbeat so I didnt have to get the needle stuck in me after all! Its been a long road from the day I found out I lost my baby until now. I had been actively trying to conceive and finally it has happened and while I am extremely happy I cant help but to think negative thoughts because I feel like something bad is going to happen with this pregnancy :( :( :(

I had 2 miscarriages one 5 years ago and one 7 years ago. One baby with cysytic hygroma the other with turners syndrome. I was scared out of my mind... I am scared out of my mind. What those babies had this one does not but still it is scary to think he will never be in my arms. Honeslty there is nothing I can say or do to make it better for you because I have been scared since day one. We have tried for a baby for 10 years and this is a blessing but being scared sucks! So far he is perfect in all ways but you never know... I have tried to leave it to God but it is hard after what we have already been through. I thought that at 12 weeks it would be ok then I thought that when I started to feel him move it would be ok but now I think the only time it will be ok is when he is out! I got just over 9 weeks left and I can not wait to see him and hold him. I hope that you can find peace and be able to relax but if you can't know that you are in no way not alone.

Congrats on your rainbow baby. I got a fetal doppler for this pregnancy because after three losses I would surely lose my mind. It has been a life saver!

Good luck! My first pregnancy with my son was so easy, I thought that I was super mom, but I had a miscarriage with a baby girl @ 11 wks. I got pregnant less than 2 months after the unanswered miscarriage (no bleeding, found out during first ultrasound) and that pregnancy was so hard! Every single day I feared I'd lose my daughter, and I thought once I felt her moving @ 20 wks that it would get easier, but it didn't. The pregnancy even ended with a dramatic birth, but she is a beautiful, healthy baby girl and we have a princess angel in heaven. The pregnancy will be hard, but understand that it is normal for that and just think positive thoughts :)

I feel ya on this one. I had my son Noah at 17 weeks in 8/2011 and Im now 10 weeks pregnant - my blood pressure and heart rate where high the other day when I went to the doctors and then I was nervous during our whole ultrasound today. If you need someone to talk to, vent to, etc feel free to message me since we are due right around the same times :)
