Next month will be the official month we start trying again. I'm both excited and terrified. I've always wanted a baby, being a mother has been something I have always dreamt about, so loosing my son was one of the most devastating things that could have happened. I had to change OB after having my son. I just felt like she wasn't paying enough attention to me. She is a really good doctor and is very knowledgeable but she had way too many patients and wasn't taking the time to be there for every individual. My GP recommended me to an OB he knows and he took me in that same day and checked me out and took the time to listen to me and let me know where we would go from there. He explained how when I get pregnant again I would be on progesterone medication for the first 16 weeks then after I would be on progesterone shots. He did say at first I would get a cerclage but after seeing him a few times he said he they would monitor me and he would see if by 16 weeks I would need one or not. I'm terrified of the shots. I have heard so many different things about them and I don't want to experience any of the bad things, but I know that if I dont want to have another preterm labor then I have to do everything possible to have a full term pregnancy and a healthy baby. I have still have had my up and downs. It is still hard to see everyone who was pregnant with me have their babies healthy and happy. I wanted that so much and for it to be taken was so hard to comprehend. I have accepted it and after months we have decided to try again. I pray that I am able to get pregnant as easily as I did the first time and that my pregnancy is as easy as the first. I want to be able to hold my rainbow baby next year. I want this year to be better than the last. I will keep anyone who is interested updated on my journey.
♥️♥️♥️Keeping you in my prayers for a healthy pregnancy and for you and baby to push through!!
I just went through the same 11days who woth our baby girl at 21weeks1day. I delivered her and she still had a heartbeat for 25mins
Hi, my prayers go to you and all will fall in place . I was in the same shoes . Recently lost my baby at 21weeks on 1st Feb 2020 and I felt my gynae wasn’t paying full attention as the pre term labour could have been avoided. I have also been advised to take progesterone shots and have a cerclage procedure for a safer pregnancy . I intend to start trying again in March cz I really truly want a baby just scary because of what I went through and I trust God not to experience such again it was truly an excruciating experience
Babyinheaven Thank you for your wonderful comment and your much appreciated prayers. I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't even begin to imagine how difficult I was for you. My son had a heartbeat until I pushed him out, but unfortunately he didn't went he came into this world. But I will say I'm happy that you had 25 wonderful min with her in this world. Prayers to you and your family as well.
BibiT Thank you for your much appreciated prayers. I wish you all the luck on having your rainbow baby. Yes I can understand how you would feel neglected by your OB as I felt the same. I pray that all comes out well with you and your next pregnancy. I am so scared and a bit curious about the progesterone shots. But I now God has me in his hands and I will leave it all up to Him.
It sounds like you've got a good plan in place and you're with an OB who's listening. I wish you the best and hope to read more about your journey. You know, my new nextdoor neighbor is pregnant and due in the next month or so. I thought it would bother me, but I'm actually okay. I guess that's what time (11 years) has done for me.
It’s not easy to find a good OB. I’m in Sacramento so if anyone knows a good OB please let me know. I lost my baby girl at 18 weeks. The OB also recommends I should have a cerlage procedure for next pregnancy. We want to have a baby so bad so we’re trying again. Keeping you in my prayers. You’re strong and can do it. Be positive!
