    Well tonights BFP is much darker than yesterdays which makes me feel much.more confident, all my m/c have seemed to stay faint lines.

    Boobs are feeling sore and enormous already and that heavy full bladder feeling has arrived, hopefully nausea stays away

    How is everyone else doing?

    That's a really good sign mumma T. I'm anxious as hell. I am trying not to think about it. But being on bed rest makes it hard not to think about much else. 5 weeks till first safezone

    Bedrest already must be awfully hard, is.it for the duration of pregnancy?

    At this stage just my first trimester. I've had 15 miscarriages all before 7 weeks so on top of pumping myself with progesterone, asprin and pregnyl the bedrest is to minimize the risk

    At least there is light at the end of the tunnel, and if it gives you your take home baby it's well worth it

    It so is. But still no guarantee I will make it to 12 weeks. So at the moment I'm trying to feel positive but it's hard. We aren't letting ourselves really embrace it till we are over 12 weeks. Which I guess is why I'm glad for this thread. Unless you've had losses I guess it's hard to relate to lack of a joy yet

    Yeah I agree about not being able to relate, one of my close girlfriends is so dismissive of my miscarrages, I dont think she understood how much each one crushed me.

    My obstetrician is the only one who seems to understand that it's normal I have gained about 5 kilos out of eating my emotions with the last 9. I have given up trying to explain miscarriages. And so sick of people telling me when its meant to happen it will. Yeah cos 15 losses just mean the time wasnt right

    Well today is the day AF should have been here, trying to think positive and not to think of the possibility of this one not making term.

    Next milestone, 5 weeks. Going to get bloods done Thursday, not sure if I should ask to do beta levels of just go with the yes pregnant

    I am past both my past miscarriage dates too, passed a 8 week scan and now just awaiting a 12 week to get 100% excited. Still double checking every time I go to the bathroom though

    I'm still double checking the toilet paper and I'm 22 weeks..... Peanut is wriggling around and everything, and all scans are okay, but it still get nervous before each scan...

    Just popped in to say I am thinking of all of you, and hoping everything is going smoothly.
    I haven't had recurrent miscarriages in the past, but lost a bub at 8 weeks and then lost my daughter at two days old following a traumatic birth.
    I can relate to many of the emotions that you are feeling and am continually nervous in this pregnancy, this is going to be another high risk one for me, with a high chance of prematurity, as my last son was early.
    Mrs Mc, really crossing everything for a good scan on Wed.
    Thinking of you,

    Hi everyone
    Is really nice to find this thread - like everyone has said no one else really understands what miscarriages are like unless they've been through them too so is nice to be able to read all your posts and relate to them.
    How is everyone in here going now?
    I've been ttc for over 5 years and have had 4 miscarriages during that time and am now pregnant with what will hopefully be my first child :-) I have morning sickness this time round which has never happened before so am taking that as a good sign! But like others in here I am also running to the loo a lot to check for any bleeding which makes me feel anxious but so far so good.
    Hope you're all doing well still and are feeling good
