Hello all. I'm 31 years old and just found out that I'm pregnant for the 3rd time. Only one of my pregnancies resulted in a live birth (my daughter now 9), the other one I miscarried at 5 months. Also less than a year ago I had a LEEP procedure done, where they had to remove quite a large section of my cervix (I was CIN II). Yet another issue is that I've been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and PCOS and take synthroid and metformin respectively. I'm wondering what the likelihood is that I'll be able to carry full term. I haven't seen an OB yet (my 1st appt is in a week) and I'm really worried. The late term miscarriage was 7 years ago and almost tore me up, I'm sooo scared that it will happen again. Does anyone have any advice about how I should manage this pregnancy?
