    Pregnant at 38 with #2 after 2 miscarriages
    mms428 posted:
    Ok so here it is... Im really needing some advice. I have a son who is almost 6. My first miscarriage occurred in July 2012, I was almost 9 weeks. It's been a roller coaster we had been trying since and got lucky in April 2014. Went for a 10 wk ultrasound and found there were 2. Fraternal twins but one stopped growing. Then 3 wks later went to see the high risk doctor found the baby's bladder was slightly enlarged. They said It's fairly common but wanted watch closely.

    We went back 2 weeks later No heartbeat..... Needed a D&E was setting up and appt and 3 days later I miscarried June 9,2014.

    Just found out on my birthday Oct 11th (just turned 38) that we are pregnant again. Im just over 7 weeks and have an appt with the nurse at my OBs office this week.

    Im really scared, what are my chances that this can happen again. Its a waiting game? A Crap shoot? What are my chances of carrying this one to term.... I know these are open ended questions and I need to take this one day at a time. That is what my husband tells me God love him!

    Any advice?

    I don't have any advice but I sure hope things have been going well for you. Sorry for what you went though but fingers are crossed that good things are ahead.
