Hi. My name is Lynn. I am the mother of two beautiful boys--Andru is 5 and Robin is 3. On February 14, 2005, my third pregnancy ended at five weeks gestation--just one week after I learned I was pregnant. Devestated doesn't begin to describe what I felt. My husband and I wanted another child, but I was so scared to try again. I couldn't bear the thought of losing another child. My fears made intimacy between the two of us sporadic at best.

On August 5 of this year, his mother passed away. For the first time, my concern was for my husband and not for me. I did all I could to comfort him in his loss. Some of the comforting must have done something for me, too, as we conceived the week after the funeral.

Today I am celebrating 18 weeks of pregnancy. I've seen the baby on ultrasound and heard the heartbeat. In 8 days, we go for THE ultrasound--to measure baby's size, and hopefully learn the gender.

I do have a question for any of you who have had a child after miscarriage. Is it common to have excess muscle pain? My OB keeps saying that the pain is "normal" and fromt he baby growing as he/she should. He even said that this likely happened in my other two pregnancies (different doc than the one I'd had before, as that clinic didn't treat me well after the miscarriage). I remember some pain, but nothing like this. It feels like stretched and pulled muscles. Is this common? <img src="/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

Lynn yes it can happen that way, I had similar when I had my daughter nearly 17 years ago, I looked it up in the library at the time and remember seeing something about the muscles not recovering from miscarriage before the pregnancy, I also believe a lot of it is down to the fact that having got pregnant shortly after a miscarriage you're bound to be tense and worried which in itself can cause pain, I know its easy to say to try and relax more as you will be more aware of everything that happens with this pregnancy, but try thinking that you are now virtually in the second tri master and therfor less likely to miscarry, I dont know if I am allowed to post a link on these forums but if you tell me how I can email you direct I will send you a link of a good web site that may help you. good luck on wednesday with your scan.
