I'm back! Sensitive post warning pregnant again.

β€’28 Replies

Hi it's been ages since I've been on here. I was seriously depressed after losing Amelia at 20 weeks pregnant. It was a huge shock as she seemed such a viable pregnancy. We had a funeral it was wonderful to celebrate her life and acknowledge her as part of our family she will always be our second daughter . We her cremated so she is with us always. The post mortem revealed no obvious cause of death and going forward with another pregnancy that was the best news that we could have had. The consultant has agreed I can have weekly heartbeat checks until my 20 week scan she was so lovely saying her door is always open πŸ™‚ people say negative things about nhs but my care has been amazing 🀩

We tried after my period and 12 days post ovulation and got only got a positive test! Feeling very blessed πŸ™‚ We both believe Amelia had a hand in it ❀️

Super early days we know the risks of testing early seeing a chemical pregnancy but are keeping our fingers crossed all goes well

I hope you are all okay and will have a good catch up with what everyone is up to Xx

Thank you. We all get nervous but hoping for the best but cautious of things could go wrong, every pregnancy has start from somewhere! We hope we can give Francesca a living sibling.😍 I believe Amelia is around us - I can smell her quite a lot (especially when I picked up her ashes )every mother knows their baby's smell. Once this toy started on its own started playing without anything there to activate it sure that was Amelia πŸ˜‚ How is Millie now? I heard she had COVID19 that's awful poor little girl.

Good with the FET hope you can give Millie a sibling 😍Xx

Yeah..... just about 24 weeks now. Not a day (hour?) goes by without me worrying about the pregnancy though (a rainbow one itself). Really best wishes for your pregnancy. xxx

Bless you lovely. I remember it well with Francesca my nerves were awful throughout the entire pregnancy spent looking over my shoulder. Everyone else was so excited and I was sad I couldn't be because I was scared of it going wrong πŸ₯² With Amelia I let my guard down after 12 week scan I genuinely believed all would be okay. And she should've been but we was very unlucky rare to lose a baby so late- please hold that in mind. This time I'm taking it a day at a time and once we pass 20 week scan I hope I can breath out a bit.. none of the post mortem results suggest a future pregnancy could end up like Amelia but still we feel better and after then we will tell friends and family. I've told my parents, my older grown up son( who was devastated for the loss of Amelia more for meπŸ₯²) my sister my husband has only told his mum won't tell his brothers until 20 weeks scan. Before Amelia I believed you were probably be safe after 12 weeks scan as most woman are. Definitely has frightened me. The medics said most women are fine at that point. Every week is a week closer 😍 you're over half way it goes faster after 20 weeks then slows down at full term! Mind you I'm so busy with Francesca I won't have that luxury this time πŸ˜‚can't believe she's 2 in June they grow up far too quickly don't stay babies long πŸ₯² see a little personality forming she's a little diva very cute tho πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy hope all goes smoothly Xx

I'm glad you're sounding so positive and are looking forward. You're right about just being unlucky and there's no reason these pregnancies shouldn't go well, but I think a lot of us on this journey don't feel like we are the luckiest people! Francesca sounds like a delight and I'm so pleased you have another one on the way. Best wishes for your pregnancy. xxxxxxxxxxx

Lovely news! Wishing you lots of luck with this little rainbow Jess xx

Well you are strong in my eyes, both of you are!! Everything seems to be going ok so far Jess, thank you! The nerves are never far away but getting there, 25wks so still a wee bit to go yet.xx

Oh Jess I’m so sorry for your loss of your little Amelia. I can’t even imagine. I never got to say before because by the time I saw your post, you were taking a break from the site. I’m glad you got to hold her a funeral and that you’ve had great care since - nothing will heal that pain but these things do help you to keep going.

And huge congratulations to you, I’m so happy for your good news. Lots of love xx

in reply to Solly-44

Thank you, it was a huge awful shock but the funeral celebrated her life and she was acknowledged to be part of our family. My husband carried her little coffin and read out our letter to her he was so brave πŸ₯² we hope this is our rainbow baby not that replaces Amelia never she'll be always be our second daughter πŸ’ž how are things with you ?Xx

Incredible news, amazing that Amelia will be a big sister ❀️ congratulations xx
