Pregnant after miscarriage: What are the things to keep in mind?

Pregnant after miscarriage

If you’ve just become pregnant after miscarriage, you may be feeling doubly anxious and it may be a while before you can enjoy being pregnant. Getting pregnant after miscarriage is never easy and it's natural to worry that you may lose this pregnancy too, especially in your first trimester.

The stage when you lost your last pregnancy could be particularly hard. Accept and acknowledge this painful landmark and move past it. Allow yourself a good cry if you need it to relieve any tension. Wait till you’re comfortable to share the news with everyone.

How to cope if you are pregnant after miscarriage

There is no way to 100% tell that a pregnancy is going to result in a healthy baby. You are just going to have to trust that things will go ok this time around. As you cross each milestone, like listening to your baby's heartbeat, or even his/her first kick, you'll start getting the feeling that things are going well.

  1. Take it one day at a time

Try to stay in the present. When you feel yourself worrying about the future, stop and think only about the moment you are in.

  1. Find out what happened before

Ask your doctor to explain to you what happened the last time so that you can understand. If it was a clearly defined reason for which it happened, you may be able to do things differently. Or it could be that the chances of a similar problem happening again are very low, which could help to reassure you.

  1. Learn more

For instance, if your past loss was diagnosed as a blighted ovum, or caused by cervical incontinence, learn more about these conditions. You will find that knowing more about the condition that caused the previous miscarriage will give you a feeling of control this time around.

  1. Share your worries with your partner

You don't have to cope with these feelings alone. Your partner suffered a loss, too, so try to support each other.

  1. Talk to your doctor or midwife regularly

Going to regular prenatal appointments will reassure you that your baby is doing well. Tell your midwife or doctor about your worries. Write down everything that bothers you and keep a list of questions so that everything can be gone through, the next time you see them.

  1. Take care of yourself

The best thing you can do for you and your baby is to take good care of yourself – eat right, exercise lightly and feel assured that you’re going to have a healthy pregnancy.
