Inspirational Successful Pregnancy After Miscarriage Stories
Rachel from Approaching Home shares, “I got pregnant a month after I was married and was so excited, I looked forward every week to comparing how big my baby was (first a seed, then a grape, then a kiwi). But when I was 12 weeks along, I suddenly miscarried. It was very difficult and scary! I hadn’t even officially started seeing my midwife yet. The miscarriage lasted a week.
For the next few months, I was infertile, then 4 months later or so, I had another miscarriage a few days before being 5 weeks pregnant. The only reason I knew it was a miscarriage was because I was practicing fertility awareness. But, we kept trying and got pregnant with our first baby girl very soon after! I had an amazing home birth.
Years later I now have three children! I am grateful for the miscarriages because they have helped me be more understanding of the pains of others and more grateful for my children.”

My First Miscarriage
I was fortunate to get pregnant right after our wedding. This was my first time ever being pregnant, so even though I knew about miscarriages, my naive self never thought it would happen to me. Once I found out I was pregnant, I called my OB office and scheduled my first appointment. They didn’t want to see me until I was 9 weeks pregnant.
So nine weeks went by and my husband and I went to our first appointment so excited to see our little bean for the first time. The woman performing the ultrasound was very quiet. Then she began asking me questions like when my last period was and if I experienced any bleeding. I knew right away that something was wrong. What felt like years later, I was told that there was no baby. Those words felt like such a gut punch. My doctor told us that unfortunately, these things happen and that we could start trying once we felt ready. We went home and grieved this heartbreaking loss.
My Second Miscarriage
The following month we were pregnant again. I was so excited to learn that I was pregnant again, but I was also so incredibly nervous. I made an active effort to be positive. I tried not to let my past traumatic experience affect this pregnancy. Anxiety is always something that I have struggled with, so this was a huge obstacle for me. I called my OB’s office to let them know that I just had a positive pregnancy test.
This time they wanted me to come in for blood work to make sure the pregnancy was progressing. They wanted to check that my HCG level was rising as it should. I went in for my first blood test and quickly found out my level was low but that the goal is for the second blood test to at least double. Two days later I nervously returned for my second blood test and found out that the levels were rising, but not like they wanted. This was not the news I wanted to hear, but I knew what that meant.
At 6 weeks pregnant, I started bleeding. I knew in my heart that I was miscarrying. At this point, I asked my doctor what I can do differently next time around to keep the baby. Doctors reassure you that a miscarriage does not mean that you are doing something wrong. My doctor said it was not my fault. But as a woman, this was a hard pill for me to swallow. Especially after having gone through two devastating losses.
He prescribed me with progesterone for the next pregnancy. He said to begin taking it once I got my first positive pregnancy test. This time I left the office with just a little peace because there was a plan for next time. Knowing that there was a plan that has been effective for other women gave me comfort and optimism.
My Third Miscarriage
Three months later, we were blessed to find out that we were pregnant again. I began taking my progesterone and made my appointment to measure the progression of my HCG levels. Sadly, shortly after making the appointment, I started bleeding again. This was my earliest pregnancy loss. I felt so defeated. I was overwhelmed with so many emotions. Anger, fear, sadness. I wondered why this kept happening to me. I started to lose faith in being able to carry a baby to term. I was happy to have no issues getting pregnant, but my problem was staying pregnant.
I turned to my doctor desperate to find out what is going on with my body. He did a full recurrent pregnancy loss panel and it showed that there was nothing wrong with me. While it should feel like a huge relief to get positive results, I couldn’t help but feel disappointed that there was no known reason as to why my body was failing me so many times. One miscarriage is painful enough. I wondered why I needed to suffer this much pain. My doctor prescribed baby aspirin and told me to take this daily. He also said to continue taking progesterone once I had my first positive pregnancy test.
My Success Story
A few months later we found out that we were pregnant again. This was now our fourth time. I was instantly ecstatic. Then the fear and anxiety poured in. You are probably reading this because you have experienced a miscarriage or are currently going through one. Perhaps you have also experienced recurrent pregnancy loss. I am so sorry. So you probably know that the thing about having miscarriages is that falling pregnant after loss is so different. Every time I saw a positive pregnancy test I was over the moon. It’s just with every subsequent pregnancy, the anxiety and fear became worse and worse. Still, I wanted to be positive. I prayed every single day for a healthy baby.
During this pregnancy, I had my highest HCG levels yet. I was assured that every ultrasound looked beautiful. My baby was healthy. I made it through the first trimester and I couldn’t believe that I made it this far. The second trimester flew by and suddenly I was in my third trimester. People say to enjoy every moment of the pregnancy and I did. I enjoyed every kick, movement, and hiccup because that was reassurance that my baby was fine. But I also wanted to press fast forward to my baby’s due date so I could finally hold her in my arms. I was desperate to reach the finish line.
On December 30th at 9:46 PM my little girl arrived. I had finally had a successful pregnancy. I am forever grateful to finally have a success story of my own.
