I am married to a 48 year old man of 9 years. Now i am 30. I wanted to to have an offspring when i turned 25 but it did not happen. I thought one of us has a problem but we just keep on trying. I used to envy couples with kids!

One day i realised that my period was way too late since the last I had was 28 Aug. I waited until October 14 to visit the clinic. There I was told that I am few weeks pregnant. I was stunned and unspeakable! the doctor told me, are you happy? I said yes but i tried this urine test before in July when my period did not come after 2 weeks. The result was positive but I got a period after that! The doctore then advised me to see the gynae to confirm further.

I went immideately to gynae and had a scan. There I was in tears of happiness when i saw it myself the developing embryo in me. I have an explainable feeling of joy when i knew that i am really expecting a bundle of joy.

When my husband got home from work, the first question he asked was.. have you been to the doctor?? He too was stunned when i gave him a little flowery envelop with positive test and the scanned picture of embryo inside. He hug me and said,,, how come we did not have that much sex because i am too busy from work but we will be blessed with a miracle baby soon!!

We are now very happy for our first baby on the way after loong years of waiting. For all you guys waiting to expect babies too,,,just keep on waiting and pray...

2nd pregnancy after Miscarriage/loss of pregnancy?

Like Clare's story, my story is similar. Last February was the most wonderful time of my life. After my husband and I tried to conceive for about 2 years naturally, we finally found out we were pregnant. It was wonderful and the most joy I had ever felt. I experienced minimal sickness but I did have tiredness and my breast size changed (and they sure were tender). My 8th week of pregnancy my husband and I still went ahead with our pre-planned trip to Disney World. I didn't wear myself out and I had a lot of fun, I didn't even go on many rides for the safety of our little one. We were there for a week.

On the day that should have marked our 10th week of pregnancy we went to our first doctors appointment. They said everything looked fine, took our history, said we had no risks for miscarriage... we were so happy. Then, by chance, our Doc said he could try to find the heartbeat for us to listen to. He couldn't find one. He said that wasn't rare, but they had an opening to squeeze us in for an ultrasound right away if we would like, so, being excited to see our little one, we did it that day.

During the ultrasound things went from great to horrible. They measured our baby at 9 weeks, which was a week off, and then they noticed there was no heartbeat. Our baby was dead and I had absolutely no signs of miscarriage, because this type of miscarriage is very rare. I never did miscarry, I ended up having to have a D&C. In fact, up until the surgery, I was still feeling queezy a bit. It scared me. I thought they were wrong and I didn't want them to take my baby from me. I ended up having post-partum depression and didn't get back into the swing of things until about July.

It is now November and I am now 7 weeks pregnant and on Prometrium for progesteron just in case.

The worry is almost taking over my body. I had no signs or symptoms last time of a miscarriage. What do I look for now? I have the EXACT same symptoms as Clare, right down to only one boob being sorer than the other. No sickness is noticable this time. I may feel queezy at times and can't stand the smell or look of chicken but that is it.

What do we do? I go to the doctor in a week, but its my first visit again and I am terrified that it will go the same as last time. Please pray for us!



just found out that I am pregnant. I have my scan in two week and 2 days. My Husband and I want to be excited and tell all our friends and families but we can't because the same day we found out i was pregnant we had some other bad news well. I read most of all the stories and it sounds like there has been some real misfornute. I can only say I wish everyone the best and those who can pray lets us pary.
