Work

I am 5 weeks and 3 days pregnant, that is my second pregnancy. Unfortunately my
first pregnancy ended up as a miscarriage aprox at the same week  as I am right now.
I am scared that it can happen again. I have quite stressful work,
where I work long hours, can my work be a  reason for miscarriage?
Thank you

Usually when a miscarriage happens this early on its usually an implantation issue or a chromosomal issue that the body sees as a threat and terminates it. There is no way to prevent a miscarriage this early on i was told that the medicine that they gave in the past actually did more harm in the long run. Also if you are stressing hard about it it can stress the baby / embryo out. Try and stay as relax as possible. I know its hard i still worry about if i something will happen with this baby since i miscarried a week before i conceived her (now 23 weeks) so just remember a miscarriage doesn't always mean it will happen again woman usually go on to have healthy pregnancy. Good luck!

I came to the multiples forum because I desperately would like to have twins.

   Reading this is what I am going through. I had a d & c on the 8 of Oct. And I ovulated the 18 according to the ovulation tester.  On Friday 2nd of Nov I started spotting lightly. I am still slightly spotting. I should have been almost over a heavy af by now.

Is it possible I was having symptoms of pregnanc

Is it possible to have pregnancy symptoms after d&c?

I have had elevated temperature for a few days, dizzy, fatigue, sore breast but mostly before the spotting. Nausea, indigestion and constipation.

If my spotting is implantation then when should I test again? All the test I have done since the d & c have been bfn.

Unfortunately I expelled everything naturally with my last miscarriage and I know d&cs can be really hard on the body so it may take a little bit longer for recovery since its a suction evacuation. I am sorry for your loss kittkatt
