can't stop worrying

Hi everyone. I am going in for my first appointment on Thursday afternoon and am both excited and scared. I had a miscarriage in April of last year and didn't even know it. In other words, there was no blood, no cramps, no indication that the pregnancy was no longer viable. I found out when I went in for my appointment and there was no heartbeat, and an ultrasound confirmed it. The fetus had been dead for almost a month and I didn't know it. It was 9 weeks. And we had heard the heartbeat at 8 weeks. Then I wanted to wait for a miscarriage naturally, but it never happened. June 1st I had a D&C. Anyway, I am just feeling very worried. I have no reason other than the other miscarriage. I have a beautiful 3 year old daughter which is proof I can have a normal, healthy pregnancy, but I just can't shake this fear. I really just wanted to vent and hear anyone elses stories of pregnancy after miscarriage. Thanks,

Re: can't stop worrying

I havent had multiple miscarriages (except for one in which I was preg. for the first time and was VERY early in the pregnancy) but with this pregnancy, for whatever reason, I was absolutely convinced that something would be wrong with the baby, and refused to even acknowledgeit, other than the pregnancy symptoms. At one point, my hubby wanted to talk about names and I started sobbing because I absolutely could not name something I wasnt sure I even had! I had my ultrasound at 5 months a week ago and everything looks great. I finally feel like I can get to know this baby. Its a girl. We are so happy. And she is in perfect health.

Sorry 'bout the double post, girls. I think my system was a bit screwy last night. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/round.gif">

Re: can't stop worrying

Thanks for your wonderful words of advice and empathy. I really appreciate it. I am going it today and I want to ask my midwife to order an ultrasound just so I can see (because I'm pretty sure there won't be a heartbeat that can be heard on the doppler yet). I could be off on my dates though. It's very encouraging to know that others out there are sharing the same emotions, of have before. Congratulations on your pregnancies. Thanks again,
