I have had 4 miscarriages. The first 3 I got pregnant with 1 or 2 cycles immediately after the previous loss. I never learned the reason. The 4th was a D&c and did have a genetic issue.

From my personal experience, In retrospect, I wish I had spent some time to:

  1. Properly heal from the loss both physically and mentally
  2. Taken supplements and have a diet that supported optimum egg and uterine health before trying again. After reading "It starts with the egg" and "the woman code", I believe I could have done something to help my situation before trying again. It may not have made a difference, but what if it had?? It could have saved me much grief.
  3. Did some accupunture treatment. I truly believe it helps with circulation to the uterus.

    I want to be clear, MOST MCs are caused by genetic abnormalities and it is Not your fault!

    I totally understand that you want to move forward by moving on to the next pregnancy. This is just one person's experience and you have to do what is right for you.

    Here are the books I mentioned if you want to read them:

    It Starts with the Egg: How the Science of Egg Quality Can Help You Get Pregnant Naturally, Prevent Miscarriage, and Improve Your Odds in IVF

    WomanCode: Perfect Your Cycle, Amplify Your Fertility, Supercharge Your Sex Drive, and Become a Power Source

It's amazing... I too LOVE to record things. It has spots for like what events happened each month and what movies you watched. What was your craving this month vs adversion. I really love it.

Here is The Belly Book.

And The Baby Book. This I'm going to get after babe is born for his/her first year because I love The Belly Book so much. AND plus side is they aren't super expensive either.

Little peanut gave me an AWESOME night of sleep last night. I didn't wake up til 5 AM, and even when I woke up, all I had to do was pee. Wasn't nauseous or stomach cramping or anything!

Hopefully all of August (and September) goes this way :)

[EDIT] Oh yeah, DH took me to a Barnes & Nobles after puppy class yesterday and we picked up 3 books!

Oh lady. I'm glad you have a sweet husband and a tiny sprout to keep you company. Tears come so easily at this stage and while you have a reason, you also have a lot of hope and love around you. Have you ever seen this children's book? I think you would like it... (on phone so apologies for messy link)

Ehhh I've just been using common sense, and I really liked the book Expecting Better. She goes into they Whys and Statistics and Research of things we're told to avoid and then we can make our own judgement based on the Actual risk with percentages and numbers.

I've had non-heated lunchmeat multiple times so far - from the Amish market or busy supermarket deli, or from a super busy/known sub-shop. I will not have it from a hole-in-the-wall sub-shop and if I get it from the deli I won't eat it past like a day in the fridge. There's more risk of listeria from frozen veggies or produce than from lunchmeat but no one says anything about that.

I've avoided raw sushi because even the reputable places can carry parasites without knowing it, but I have no problem with the cooked kind (and would regularly get veggie sushi before even becoming pregnant - sweet potato rolls are amazing).

I'm not a caffeine/soda person Anyway, my body just doesn't like it and never has. I've had regular coffee maybe twice, but my doctor just said not to go over 200-250mg daily which I wouldn't think twice about if I actually drank it, heh.

As for alcohol.. my OB said no alcohol, just to be safe. I've had a few sips of wine or beer now and again because I personally don't believe it's an issue in small/sporadic amounts. I wouldn't have a mixed drink, but now that I'm in the 2nd trimester if I wanted a glass of wine I would have it. I was never a huge drinker so I'm completely satisfied with a few sips of other peoples. I Absolutely would not worry about wine/alcohol in cooking or in soy sauce.. it can't be a huge amount.

Basically, talk to your doctor and do your own thinking and use your common sense to figure out what you're comfortable with. The internet is full of fear-mongering and it gets a bit ridiculous :(

Congratulations, and good luck!

I've used soley Nature Made brand for over a year now: Prenatal and DHA in one pill with absolutely no fishy after taste. Pills are sizeable, but are coated so they go down easily enough with a big mouthful of liquid. Definitely recommend!

I stay under 200 mg per day but generally have a soda or coffee daily. When my oldest was in the NICU, she was given straight caffeine via ng tube to help regulate her nervous system, so I know that caffeine is not as dangerous to babies as some sources say. The book Expecting Better has a really good chapter with lots of research into caffeine.

Sure, group hug here.
I just got a book by Deepak Chopra from the library. It's keeping me positive

I never read any baby books... Just had a few apps on my phone. Baby is not dead. You'll be OK!

I do recommend this, just because it's handy and kind of funny:

I agree with mostly not focusing on the kid, although if you want to do something fun/goofy and geeky in with a gift I'd suggest either of these:

I got a pregnancy book to just write down my thoughts.

The Belly Book: A Nine-Month Journal for You and Your Growing Belly (Potter Style)

I stayed on Pinterest looking up pregnancy pins. Then it turned into baby things once I got passed the scare zone.

I stayed on here talking to the ladies. I went to the chat room a lot. First trimester wasn't fun but thanks to this sub it was durable.

Good luck!!!

Amazon! I am a 32GG and the XL fit well, a little big in the band, but they hold things in nicely

u/littleheathen · 2 pointsr/CautiousBB

This was the most memorable one, in my opinion, as far as the mom books went. I'll probably end up doing what you're doing--finding a cute book and writing notes and thoughts to the baby.

I might get this for my daughter though. I think she'd have fun with it.

We're both engineers, so we're thinking of a picture of two of our textbooks with something silly like Introductory Calculus for Infants between them.

It's a little silly, but more cute than just posting an ultrasound picture to facebook.

I just did a bunch using this book and really liked it.

u/YoAwesomeSauce · 4 pointsr/CautiousBB

I bought The Belly Book from Amazon and am filling it out as I go. My only problem is that it doesn't really have space for my husband to contribute. A pregnancy journal was initially his idea so I feel bad about it. I should have researched it a bit more to make sure he could be included. :/

I'm not sure what we'll do once she's here. My husband has kept a box for my stepson with every little piece of paper the kid has scribbled on, so I imagine he'll do the same for our daughter. I like the idea of an email address and I may propose one to my husband.

I have a few weeks to go before my first OB appointment as well. But here is my list:

  • Prenatals with DHA
  • Iron Supplement (due to iron deficiency anemia)

    Not a supplement, but, I also have asthma and was told to stop using my controller medication, so far I've been OK. I was told that asthma suffers have less symptoms during pregnancy - weird huh?
