Deb!!!

I am sorry that I haven't responded to any of your posts about your pg. I am so thrilled that you are pg. again! I know that it is so hard to not be paranoid about loss, especially after enduring multiple losses.

I am sending tons of SBV's your way!

Hey Deb,

Glad you're trying to stay positive - that's really all you can do.

Hi MIndy;

thank you for the well wishes. And no, I son't mind talking about the loss. It was my first loss. I was also spotting off and on the entire time but I had 3 great ultrasounds including a NT Scan at 12 weeks and all seemed to be OK in spite of the spotting.

I truly had a feeling that something had to be wrong since I never heard of spotting while pregnant. I was so naive then, I thought you got a BFP and 9 mos later you had your bundle of joy.

I had a major bleeding episode in the middle of the night and the next had an u/s and there was no heartbeat. The baby was measuring 14W4d so just a few days behind.

After the D&C the fish test showed an extra set of chromosomes, It appeared that 2 perms had fertilized the same egg. That was considered a well defined loss that can happen to anyone. 6 months later I had an Ectopic, another well defined loss. Since I was 37 I got some tests after the 1st loss and did not have to wait for 3 miscarriages to get started.

My pregnancy with Nicholas was just blissful. So miracles DO happen.

Thanks for sharing your story.

It is great to hear that you were able to have a normal pregnancy after your losses.
My losses all came after my DD. Its great that they did testing for you after 1 loss.
I got my testing done after 2 losses. Of course everything was 'fine'.

Deb I am sorry you still have spotting and as a woman that loved her m/s I am sorry you do not have more symptoms. LOL got to us fellow PALs for wishing you were sick. I am still so glad to see you here and glad you had a good U/S last week. I will keep you and your LO in my prayers.

Thanks Laura. I totally get about the m/s I had NONE with Nicholas and it was so frustrating, lol. I also barely felt him move. I lived by the doppler. Now I am not sure how to feel. Every time I spot I think ..well, this is it but then it goes away as quickly as it came and I get hopeful again. The U/S tech detected some blood out side of the placenta and warned me to expect more spotting or even some red bleeding so, as long as i don't soak a pad an hour or pass huge clots I am determine to keep the faith alive for this little one.

I pray that all will workout for the best and we will have a little one next August.
