I have a son who is 2. and I had a miscarriage back in March and I just found out that I am pregnant again. I am a little worried that I might lose this one and I am a bit scared. My boyfriend doesn't want me to worry or stress out about it. How can I get this uneasiness off my mind? I am in school full time and work part time to try to get everything my son needs. Any advice would be appreciated.

I've been pregnant many times and only have two sons from it. I had a miscarriage, a preemie who passed away after 38 hours of being born. They told me I would never be able to carry a baby full term so I would never have any kids. I have my two boys who are 2 and 1 years old. When I was pregnant for my 2 year old I stopped going to school to lose some of the stress of school and work. It did help me and I'm glad I did it because I have my wonderful boys which the doctors said I would never have. Good Luck.

yea I will have to do that on Monday. I don't know how much longer I will have this job. It was supposed to be a summer job but they might need someone because they fired the last person to clean the west side of the apartment building. Which would be good for me because I can't work a whole lot with my school schedule.

I just found out last night. classes haven't started yet and I haven't even been to the doc yet. Need to call and schedule an appointment plus get back on medicaid. I don't even think they canceled from last time because I didn't provide proof of the miscarriage. It was too hard for me. I work very little only 16 hours a week and when I find out more I will let my instructors know. Last time I was attending Ivy tech but now I am at IU in Bloomington IN. live on campus. I just don't want to worry myself to death but also the last time I talked to my doctor he said I needed a boost on my rubella vacination and I haven't done it cause it costs like 70 and I haven't had the money to do it. It can cause blindness and paralyzes. That is also why I am scared.

have you tried explaining to your school about your past and see if they can cut your hours down for you because getting worried and stressed will only higher the chances of it happening again trust me i have been there i have been in your shoes trust me !
