Everyone here knows that is the SCARIEST time. Everything just seems to be "bad sign". How are you holding up? Tell us - we are here to lend attentive ear.

I'm here. I'm 8w0d. I'm so thrilled to be past m/c date(7w6d.) I am just praying that all is well. I'm still struggling with m/s so that must be a good sign for me at least.

I have my first appointment tomorrow. It is just to fill out paperwork and get an appointment with a doctor. I will hopefully have an appointment in early March.

Hi, there and thanks for asking! I'm 12 weeks tomorrow and doing really well. Still the regular symptoms and such, but after seeing babe's heartbeat on u/s at 8w3d and hearing it at 9w0d on home doppler, we're doing great. Being able to hear the heartbeat anytime is really reassuring for me. And I love seeing how babe is growing just from tracking the heartbeat across my stomach - it's getting higher and higher on my tummy! And I swear I'm starting to feel it, which is a little early, but I'm small and there is definitely something going on in there!

Looking forward to hitting the 14-week mark in just two weeks and being able to tell the entire world!

Congratulations Ann on passing "dreadful date". This is such a big thing. Are you starting to feel a little bit more secure? Good luck on your appointment tomorrow and hopefully your Dr will be able to see you pretty soon. I had to wait till 13.5 weeks to see Dr for the first time and you bet I didn't like that LoL. All the best and keep us posted!

WOO HOO Shannon!


I think that's the earliest I ever heard anyone is able to find HB with home Doppler. Hope the rest of your pregnancy is happy and stress free and you enjoy every minute of it. You are entering the best time of pregnancy and you sound confident and excited - I am so happy for you. All the best!

I'm so happy for you, making it passed the "date". Your message caught my eye because you're due on my birthday!!! Anyway, I miscarried at 11 weeks, and I'm sitting at 5w2d. I have a ways to go. Any advise on how to keep my sanity?

I'm here, 5w2d! Trying not to drive myself crazy, wondering what I did wrong last time. I made it to 11 weeks with my first pregnancy, now I have 6 weeks to go to pass the "date". Any advice on keeping sanity?!?!

Hey, I'm 10w1d and I also dread having another m/c. I've had 2 one at 5w and one at 8w so i'm definitely past that but still very nervous about everything. The good things that keep me going are the M/S and the low back pain which keep me aware that my little one is growing. I'm really thinking I'd like to order a doppler just for peace of mind. I don't think I can wait until next U/S or next appt. What do you suggest I do to keep my mind off this. I'm so scared to go shopping or to tell anyone because of m/c.

Hi Nicole here at 5 weeks. Just pg and still adjusting. Very scary time. Concieved imm. following m/c before 1st AF. It took 30 days to "o" though. Dr. appt tomm. and getting serial blood draws. Then I have an u/s set up for 7 weeks. I am going on vacation 1 week from today to FL though and am very nervous that something will go wrong then. Later this week I will hopefully pass the point of last m/c.
