: hello everyone--this is my first time on here. I am a 27 year old soon to be single parent. I am just about 4 1/2 months pregnant. I am showing but the only thing I can think about is miscarrying this baby. I have had a lot of stress, but i have no "bad" symtoms. Like cramping or bleeding. But I have read about women miscarrying this late in the pregnancy and not even knowing. I think its because I can't feel the baby move on a regular basis. But this is all I think about...

: Maybe if anyone has any similar stories I would love to hear them.

: Thanks----

Hi Jenny:

I'm in a different situation than yours but the outcome is still the same: I think about a possible
miscarriage all the time. My situation is different because I'm only 8 weeks along and I have spotting
and some light cramping. I called my doctor and she said that 30% of women have miscarriages
in the first trimester and to get some bed rest if I got any cramping and to call if I got heavy bleeding.
Well, it's been 5 days of this spotting gooey stuff and light cramps and I am almost beside myself.
I suppose at this point if a miscarriage is going to happen it will happen regardless of what I do.
But all the same I can't stand not knowing if that babe is alive or not. With each day that goes by
I seem to get more I can only imagine how you must be feeling at 4 1/2 months.
Trying to be logical about the outcome is not working. I almost feel crushed. I'm thinking of calling
my doc. on Monday and requesting some help...anything!! Are my hormones messed up? Is
the embryo already dead and just biding it's time until a miscarriage? Augh!!!! I need reassurance.
Maybe you could call your doc. for some reassurance too.

Well, I'm just commiserating I suppose. Make that call and keep in touch! LynnB
