I am 13w5d pregnant with my second child, I had a miscarriage in dec 2009 so I am very worried about this pregnancy because at first I had a little bump above my pelvic bone but now I only feel it when I am laying on my back and in the beginning I felt a very large emotional attachment to my baby but currently right now I just feel as if something is wrong with my baby. I have had some cramping but small cramps like menstural cramps nothing like when I had my miscarriage before and absolutely no bleeding at all. I am starting to think that my mothers intution has gotten the best of me or im stressing out thinking that my baby no longer has a heartbeat because I have already had one miscarriage I am terrified that I am going to lose this baby. I have not felt any movement yet but then again it may be too early for all that and it has been 5 years since I had my first child so its like waiting for the first everything again for the very first time. My next appt is at 16w which is aug 27 and I am terrified that if my baby has no heartbeat they will have to do a D&E and that will just feel like I have had an abortion and I am not sure that I could even deal with anything else because I will fully blame myself if something has happened to my baby. Someone please give me some advise

After 12 weeks the risks of miscarriage goes down drastically. I had 3 miscarriages all well before the 12 week mark. Usually if you make it that far, your in the clear.

Thannk you for the advice. I in fact was so worried that I called my provider yesterday morning and she was able to get me in a 1pm and the entire way there I was nervous as all get out. But once I got there and they started the internal u/s baby is perfectly fine he/she was waving and then started moving its arms like it was swimming.

Try and stay calm even though I know that it is not easy to do. I've had two miscarriages and neither one of them seemed to be the same. If you are really concerned contact your doctor and let him/her know your fears and see if they can get you in at an earlier time. A lot of times they will be able to get you in earlier and get you checked out. If they can't and you just can not wait you can always go to the ER and they can check you out there with an ultrasound and fetal heart beat check. I know that with my last miscarriage it was very hard and painful and then when I got pregnant again with my son I worried constantly about having a miscarriage. I was not even able to bond with my son until after he was born because I was so afraid of loosing him and wasn't sure I could handle that. Please know and try to remember that it is not your fault if you have a miscarriage. I know that that is easier said than done. Hang in there and I hope things go good for you. Please keep us updated on how you are doing and what happens.
