    Hi Mindy
    My 2nd preg was the same as yours, initially I got some preg symptoms but after the 1st visit to the Dr, my symptoms stopped (I thot I was lucky) but the next visit Dr said the fetus nt growing and no heart beat, I was very upset too, keep blaming myself whether did I do anythg wrong during the preg. My 3rd preg came 8 mths later and now my girl is 14 mths old. I'm sure your preg will be a successful one! GOt symptoms tat means ur bb is growing! Take care!!

    I had the same problem too. Last August I lost my baby at 7 weeks. One month later I was pregnant again but with some complications. I had cramps and bleeding till around 14 weeks. But now I'm 26 weeks pregnant.

    All the best to you! Stay positive. Be careful and call your gynae if anything amiss. Remember to let your gynae know about your previous pregnancy. Your gynae will monitor you more carefully.
  5. faced the same thing... baby didnt grow... only saw the waterbag during the scan... hope to try again soon... [​IMG]

    This means u ttc 1 mth later after ur m/c? I juz went to TCM and he advised me to ttc only after 3 mths but i cant wait. Given my weak body, he said better to wait than be sorry. Am so sad....was so happy for u that u could get preggy so soon! =)
  7. my gynae said 2 months after m/c can try again...

    My doctor told me I can try straight away. So we tried and got lucky. I don't think I could have waited. But it's best to follow your doctor's advice

    hi joanna,
    congrats. so envious. i just did the procedure to remove my baby yesterday. gynae say spotted a big fibroid in my womb. so need to wait 6 weeks to see whether must remove the fibroid. then after removing the fibroid, must wait for another 6 weeks before can try to conceive again.

    I m urs,
    My gynae said 2 cycles which is also considered as 3 mths. Even TCM and GP also said 3 mths will be better to play safe. Thats y I am not sure....i hope to try soon coz I wish to get a ox bb....Anyway, once i finished my herbs given by TCM, I will check if I could ttc soon.

    Ur doc is ur gynae? So gd that u can try straightaway...my TCM said my body is still weak to ttc..

    I wish u best in ur pregnancy! [​IMG]

    I was with Dr Heng from ESH. Now I'm with Prof Mary Rauff, cos been having cramps and bleeding. Now on bedrest till I deliver. I'm pretty lucky that I got pregnant again straight away after my M/C. So not to worry, it's totally possible to get pregnant again and have a healthy baby. My baby is healthy, he's big for his age. Just that my health overall is weak.

    I had Fibroid in my first pregnancy. But it disappear when I M/C.

    hi joanna,

    i tink im more unlucky than u ladies. i got the pregancy syptoms but bleeding. it took me 3 weeks to rest at hm i went to chk every week in the end i still got to remove it cos there is no foetus in it. is call molar pregancy only 1 out of 1200 women will get it. and it cost mi abt $4k to remove it as the doc say it might be dangerous if go for normal ops. the worst part is i got to wait for at least 6mths to confirm tat everything is fine then i can get pregnant again.

    Hi i,
    I have the same problem as u, except mine is partial molar. Doc said i have to wait for at least 3-4mths before i can get pregnant. This is already my 2 miscarriage. Ever since i conceived my boy 4 yrs ago i have difficulties conceiving again.Wonder if anyone has the same experience and managed to conceive on 3rd tried

    Hi all,

    I went to see my gynae a couple of days ago.. It is my 1st pregnancy and i'm supposed to be like 7weeks and 5 days pregnant. However, after the scan the doctor said that my pregnancy is only 5 weeks in size..

    I'm feeling so upset now, and so is my hubby.. :-(

    I have another appointment in 2 weeks time. She said if it still doesnt grow, they will have to remove it..

    I'm hoping and praying that my baby will grow and that everything's going to be fine..

    Hi Jar Ross,

    I can understand how u feel. I went thru the same but we din worry much at the point coz gynae said its ok and just to observe. Try to rest as much as you can and dont stress yourself up. If baby is meant to be with us, it will be. Do look out for any bleeding or cramps or change in appetite.

    For me, baby wasnt meant for us. Bb was supposed to be already 12 weeks ... supposed to pass the critical stage rite? Well, i guess it isnt our luck yet. My boy passed away rite on CNY this yr and doc said he passed away in me since he was abt 10 weeks according to the measurement of the foetus. I was able to bury him as i had sort of a normal birth. I didnt opt to have it removed via D/C. only the placenta was removed via D/C coz cant come out naturally. My bb came out complete and naturally but the pain i had to go thru ... i know now what is contractions.

    Now i have just finished my 2nd cycle and both my gynae and massage therapist said its the best time to try. Scared tho ... haiz ...

    Hi mummies,

    Just to share: I too did faced with a situation in May 2007 whereby i have to remove my fetus at 8 weeks old (supposedly) as it has stopped growing (i guess at 6 weeks), no heartbeat... I even went to seek a 2nd opinion at another gynae clinic but the result was the same.. it was a tough period for me, kept crying...it was supposed to be my 2nd pregnancy but guess it was not meant to be at that point of time. went thru the "evacuation of the womb" as the doc. called it and told to try again in 3 months time.. guess we couldn't wait and i got preggy again after 2 months!
    Now, my baby boy is already 9 months old and he is healthy and chubby as can be! So the bottom line is, dun give up hope and stay postive always! [​IMG]

    Hi mummies,

    Just to share : i went to see my gynae couple of days ago was sad to know tat bb hv stop growing & no heart beat too.
    BB died around 10wk plus after my last visit to gynae.
    gynae say tat i had a miscarriage which i dont hv any symptom anyone had the same experience as me ?

    Went KK for 2nd opinion but result was the same so i went thru the "evacuation of womb" on the same day coz i dont wan to drag anymore its so saddening.

    Anyone know muz i engage those Malay lady to help me do some massage??
  24. twiddly_doo

    twiddly_doo New Member

    Hi kelynn,

    Can understand how u feel. Be strong yeah ... and yeaps it is best if you engage a massage lady. that was what i did. The massages will help to contract your womb and expel out all the left over tissues or blood in you and also the toxic.

    According to my maasage lady, extremely impt for ppl in our case as we did not realise baby has already passed away in us for quite awhile and this causes the toxic to build up. If dont massage, it may cause infertility. I went thru 5 sessions in all ... just like when ppl give birth rite?

    Do take care yeah [​IMG]

    Hi all,

    hi Everyone

    sad to hear that n i experienced it before..oso fm e same common reason - no heartbeat..it just happened naturally.

    so u wun know when it'll happen until check-up but i think spotting will occur first..as mentioned by my gynae before, it could have happened a day already when i suddenly noticed spotting n that evening even had an inauspicious dream while napping that afternoon..

    take care & gd luck to all [​IMG] kambadae!

    I was preggy 6 times and m/c 4 times..
    I think its always devasting to know that u r preggy and then to be told there's no yolk sac, no fetal pole... no heart beat..

    but the good news is.. if u can get preggy, then the m/c most prob happened by chance. Which means that u can get preggy again. and not having fertility issue..

    dun give up hope.. rest wel.. and then give it another shot..(literally.. hahha)

    Hi Irene, I also asked the same qn to 3 different gynae and all of them said there is no one reason for that. it could be chromosome abnormalities and is the nature's way of stopping a bad pregnancy.

    i also had a m/c last Dec. BB's hb stopped at 8 wks 6 days. came as a shock to me as i hve no symptons like spotting / cramps etc. in the end, went for D&C as doc advised to reduce the emotional and physical pain. he said if i were to wait for natural m/c, it may take another few weeks more.

    Hi all, i am new to the forum.

    Just did a uterus evacuation last wednesday. i was 10 week and the sac looked like 5 week. No heartbeat to start with.

    The gynae at KK warned me during my week 4 of the possibility of a pregnancy failure and had me monitored once a week, but in vain. I had initial pregnancy symptons like tiredness and slgiht nauseousness, but these all ended by week 8... By week 9, my gynae suggested to remove the foetus.

    Went for a second opinion at Mt Alvernia and decided to go for the procedure, like Pearlyn to cut the pain short. I don't think I can face a bloody toilet bowl and scoop up the tissue for further examination...

    Anyway, this must be just part and parcel of life. Like many of the lucky mums here, I sure I will get lucky one day!

    Hi ladies ...

    God has been on my side and i am pregnant again ... had a scare just last fri tho .. spotting occured .. felt like the whole nightmare happening all over again ... I was crying and praying so hard to God to let me hold on to this child ... rushed to gynae and with God's will, baby is safe and growing well.

    But now i am on complete rest at hm ... and everyday has to check for spotting ... next week i will be seeing my gynae again .. i hope all will be well ...

    tho now i am in a dilemma ... hubby working alone and my current gynae is a private gynae .. charges each visit is high ... am thinking of going to KK but is it advisable to change gynae with the history that i already have? Any opinion is appreciated ..

    I have only a waterbag too [​IMG] and not growing after a week. Under such condition, should I do evacuating the uterus so as to prepare for a 2nd pregnancy or the waterbag will come out by itself?
