Hi all!! I am 37 years old and 7 weeks pregnant, I had a miscarriage/stillbirth at 16 weeks in April of this year as anyone can imagine I am really nervous about this pregnancy. Does any one else have a similar situation that can be related to this or some words of advice?? Much appreciated!!!
I am so very sorry for your devastating loss. I think we all worry about our babies. To help me with my anxiety I use fetal monitor which allows me to hear baby's h/b between appts. It makes things easier but the worry never completely goes away.
Have you seen the h/b yet?
Thankyou. And yes I went to OB on Monday and had the ultrasound done the baby is fine I am just so worried right now and so is my fiance. Maybe we should check into one of those monitors I wouldn't know where to look or even find one.
Many moons ago, I m/c'd at 18-19 weeks & I too was a nervous wreck w/this pregnancy. Renting/buying a fetal monitor's great idea - try this website -
