What a Stillbirth Might Mean for Future Pregnancies

There really is no solid medical evidence that suggests you need to wait a specific amount of time before you conceive after a stillbirth. That being said, some studies suggest that a pregnancy with a due date around the anniversary of your stillbirth might increase the risk of high levels of anxiety or post. Patients who conceive quickly after a loss, usually within 6 months, run a higher risk of prematurity,” he says. “This is usually related to a patient who has had a late loss (after 20 weeks).”.

Ovulation may happen as soon as 2 weeks after your miscarriage. If you become pregnant during this first ovulation, you may see that positive sign on the pregnancy test sooner than you thought. Waiting less than 12 months to conceive after a stillbirth brought no added risk of subsequent stillbirth, preterm birth or small-for-gestational-age birth, compared with waiting 24 to 59 months to get pregnant again, the study found. How soon after your stillbirth did you conceive again? I lost my son Sebastian Michael May 6th 2020.

I prior had a normal pregnancy, with complications being I had hyperemisis Gravardium, and placenta previa. Hes currently 3yrs old and happy and healthy as ever. My son sebastian I carried up. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), women can ovulate as soon as 2 weeks after a miscarriage, if it occurs within the first 13 weeks of pregnancy.

If. Typically, sex isn’t recommended for two weeks after a miscarriage to prevent an infection. You can ovulate and become pregnant as soon as two weeks after a miscarriage. Once you feel emotionally and physically ready for pregnancy after miscarriage, ask your health care provider for guidance. Stillbirth, or the loss of a baby after the 20th week of pregnancy, can occur with little warning.

There are many causes, and most are unavoidable. We’ll explain the causes and signs and what. I took me 12 months to conceive after a 36weeks loss.. I had lots of monitoring and was induced with a healthy baby girl at 34 weeks.. 11 months later I gave birth to a healthy baby boy at 38 weeks.. An estimated 8% to 20% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage.

In the past, women who miscarried were told to wait 2 to 3 months. Today the thinking has changed, since several studies show no.

List of related literature:

Although one study has suggested an increased risk of unexplained stillbirth at greater than 39 weeks’ gestation, and highest at 41 weeks’ gestation (96, 97), delivery should be guided by obstetrical indications, as there is no concrete recommendation for timing of delivery for previous unexplained fetal loss.

Analysis by stillbirth subtype in the second pregnancy showed that history of stillbirth conferred 10-fold increased risk for subsequent stillbirths between 20 and 28 weeks (95% CI, 6.1 to 17.2) and a 2.5-fold increased risk for stillbirths at greater than 29 weeks (95% CI, 1.0 to 6.0).

For losses after 27 weeks, in the absence of any identifiable cause for stillbirth, parents should be reassured that the risk of recurrence is no greater than 3%.183 The risk of recurrence is greater for women with losses at less than 27 weeks’ gestation.

    Love you so much bye

  • We lost my aurora may of 2017 and 8 short weeks later in July we found out I was expecting again. I felt all of these things that you have shared in this video. People made me feel so guilty but I’m greatful for my sweet rainbow ella. Congrats on your beautiful little boy! And thank you again for sharing this❤❤❤

  • Thank you for sharing your story! I just gave birth to my rainbow baby girl 7 weeks ago, after we lost our first baby. I was also 22 weeks along when my daughter passed, I know how you feel. Hugs mama!

  • Lorraine your honesty here is so beautifully raw. You don’t need to explain anything but we completely understand why you felt you had to. We can’t imagine how difficult those 9 months were but you are a true inspiration, your darling Primrose would be so proud and your sweet sweet boy is so loved and wanted, a true gift x

  • It will get better. I too lost a son at 34 weeks and got pregnant around 5 months I got pregnant again with now my 3 year old daughter and the pain of your loss won’t ever leave but it will get easier. God bless you

  • Aw honey my heart breaks for you. I am so sorry about your previous pregnancy. But i am so happy for you too! Such a blessing a d I pray a healthy baby! ��❤ just subbed. Would appreciate the same I am a smaller channel. Can’t wait to see your journey!

  • Wow triploidy is 100% fatal? Im so sorry for you guys’ loss. I had a miscarriage last year in november from severe spina bifida because i have spina bifida and i didnt know i was pregnant so this is my 1st october with it. I am 11 weeks again (12 weeks on Tuesday) and i am so scared that it will happen again…

  • No Baby could replace your beautiful girl. Your heart told you not to avoid a pregnancy here is the gift God and primrose gave you! You are blessed and no one can judge

  • Ahh Lorraine we are all overjoyed about Teddy,he’s a blessing sent from primrose. We all know you think about primrose every minute of every day. You should never of felt worried or bad,you deserve happiness and primrose would want you to be happy. Lorraine you really are a lovely human being. Xx

  • Thank you as always for sharing your story �� as painful as it is you are doing so much good helping others! You give me strength every day as I carry our own rainbow baby.

  • Darcy was meant to be yours after this loss. God truly has a plan. I love how genuine you are, sharing your journey with all of us. I’m so sorry for your loss and for this tough month. You’re amazing! ��

  • I can totally relate I had a stillborn at 38weeks, my first and only child I was devastated, 10weeks like you say I couldn’t take pill, we needed each other, it happend without protection, pregnant first time, its so soon and it’s a mixed of emotions I just have to hope and pray everything will turn out well x

  • You are so spectacularly genuine and beautiful. Your composure and honesty is a real breath of fresh air. Thank you so much for sharing your story with me ��

  • Rest in peace little angel. God bless you and yours. Amen to that Amen. The Sweder Family (Steve, Amy, Benjamin, and Meeko the cat).

  • Here’s a thought…. don’t. Were over populating. We are losing some of our beautiful natural habits to build houses to accommodate our growing populations.
    Also, my condolences ��

  • I know you have mixed feelings about Teddy (which is 10000% understandable).. just remember sweet girl that God makes no mistakes and sent him specially to you… and I have no doubt that your beautiful Primrose had a hand in it aswell. ❤❤❤ remember you TRULY ARE one of the STRONGEST women I’ve ever come across. DON’T EVER forget that ❤❤❤

  • You are so strong. It is so hard to be pregnant directly after a loss and be happy because you also feel guilt for being happy when still trying to grieve. I’m prone to miscarriage. We lost our first at 12 weeks and got pregnant 3 months later. Now I just had a miscarriage on October 19th and I got a positive test yesterday. Such a whirlwind of emotions. You give me so much hope

  • I don’t know how imma deal with Dec 6th my due date and August 5th the day I gave birth…. it’s so hard I just miss my baby boy….I thought I never could get pregnant and it finally happened and I was so shocked,excited and scared….I don’t kno how imma handle another pregnancy cuz I’m beyond scared that it might happened again. I’m sooo happy that you are doing so well

  • Of course u needed you’re partner, u needed to feel love, I can’t imagine! You’re brave! Huge hug teddy and all your babies are beautiful xx

  • I found you on my recommendation and iv subscribed to you!! Don’t beat yourself up.. I say things happen for a reason in life and maybe you needed that bit of happiness you deserve!!. ❤️

  • I know im late watching this but your a good mother don’t think about what others say, last march i lost my bby when i was holding him in my arms. He died due to premature. If I didn’t had a c section I would have tried immediately. Not to replace him but because I always wanted to be a mother.

  • I had a placenta abruption at 22 weeks 4 days and lost my daughter on Oct 15.

    How long do i need to wait before I can try ttc again?
    Also what’s the risks of it happening again?

    Plz answer ��

  • Stay strong and know one day you will see her again. I lost my son at 17 weeks to a cystic hydroma last year and not a day goes by that I don’t think of my angel baby. Your helping so many women with this video

  • I love hearing people talk so openly about pregnancy and infant loss! Thank you! Video like your helped me so much when I was going through my miscarriage at 11 weeks in October of 2015

  • Sex is a deep connection with your partner, there’s nothing wrong with having sex while healing from loss. Prim sent you an angel, and she’ll be watching over this little one for however long she’s in this realm.

  • You guys are so strong and so wounderful. I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ve only felt with early miscarriages, but I wanted to say I’m glad there is a month to remember angel babies.
    I’m so happy you have your son, and soon to be baby girl here to comfort you until your with baby girl again.

    My birthday is the 14th! And I’m due December with my third baby girl. ❤�� So we have alot of similarities

  • What other people think does not matter. Missing Primrose & living her is natural. I wish I could hug you. All will be ok. God has a plan for you. Go with it. With God’s grace your rainbow baby is on the way. Lots of love,hugs & prayers your way.

  • I just lost my baby last Monday. I’ve always watched your videos. And now I 100% understand you. You were the 1st person I thought of. I’m so broken and devesated. I’ve been rewatching all your old videos. And your words are helping me get through it as much as I feel like I can. Thank you Lauren. I wish I could hug you ❤️.

  • I had a still birth 7 years ago due to uterus ruptured.He was born around 42 weeks.Its still hurt up till now.hugs and kisses to you

  • Just found your channel. I also lost my daughter to Triploidy in 2016. I definitely get emotional over my daughters loss to. Our story seems to be actually pretty similar. After Lorelei (Triploidy baby) I had another daughter named Harper in 2017. Then 4 back to back chemical pregnancies. Currently pregnant again (5 weeks) also a military family! Hugs mama this journey is definitely hard. I never heard of the place you donated to. That’s seriously amazing that they have places like that.

  • Thank You for sharing your story. I had a still born on July 18th at 24 weeks and it was a devastating blow��. I also was pregnant with a little girl “Charlie”. It’s amazing how much you can love a child without meeting them. I’m looking forward to trying again, watching your video has given me hope. I pray that you and your family are doing well❤️��

  • Bless you I can’t imagine what emotions you are going through, I suffered 2 early miscarriages at 13 weeks I was lucky enough to have 2 daughters now 14 and 16 years and so thankful for them. I wish you all the very best in this pregnancy and for the future you are such a lovely and strong women ������

  • Gosh…I couldn’t help but to cry with you while watching this video. We lost our daughter Madison to stillbirth due to placental abruption the day after my birthday. 11-12-2018. We were 35 weeks along. She was perfect. Perfect pregnancy. I was and still am shattered over it. I’m currently on here searching for videos on how to possibly cope because I too, also think I could currently be pregnant at just 8 weeks after losing her. I too, have wondered what people would think. I am afraid people will think that I am replacing my sweet girl. That’s not the case at all. My Madison is also in an urn and everyday is a heartbreaking reminder that she isn’t here. When you said, “I’m not empty” I knew exactly what you meant. My thoughts and feelings are with you entirely. I wish you the absolute BEST in this new journey. Prim is loved. ��

  • I just watched your video talking about your experience with Primrose yesterday, and this came up today. Your raw vulnerability and willingness to be so honest about this is much-needed and much-appreciated. I’m excited to be a new subscriber and keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers xx

  • Lorraine I don’t think that it’s not replaceing, it’s also beautiful as well as sad you know prim went n searched for a baby for you in a way not to replace but to join your family it is lovely as well as tearful prim understands in ways she is looking down on you and this proves it you’ve done nothing wrong none of you have just look after yourself, it’s nice as sad as you feel that you are pregnant just don’t stress yeah prim is your guardian angel whatever happends for the good then it’s happening congrats hun big hugs I know it’s scary just take it easy xxx

  • This is just so relatable!! I’ve just given birth to my beautiful baby boy and I found out I was pregnant 6 months after loosing our little girl who was born prematurely at 23 weeks 3 days I was 3-4 weeks postpartum when me and my husband had sex again and it was very emotional and comforting for us both but mainly for me! I understand that feeling of not trying to replace Primrose and wanting that connection with your other half! It’s normal no judgement here Mama, just my condolences and biggest congratulations and blessings to you and your family!

  • your body is amazing..got pregnant very quickly even after stillbirth.I also had stillbirth 32 weeks but struggling to conceive since then.Go on strong lady..

  • After giving birth in your 1st baby. When is your first sex in your husband? I had my baby this june 18, 2019. And he died after 3days… when can i have sex with my husband to get pregnant again with baby boy?

  • Thank you for sharing, I’m currently in the same boat, though I’m just approaching 20 weeks, this video was oddly comforting and helped me feel like my feelings and pause on action for example buying baby things was normal. Thank you again!

  • I just recently found your videos and I just want to tell you, YOU ARE A VERY STRONG WOMAN, beautiful inside out. You remind me Emilia Clarke/Daenerys from Game of Thrones and not just physically but also mentally. She was broken but she kept fighting and that was what made her so strong. I admire you for that and I want to share with you some words from a spiritual teacher about miscarriages, stillborns. “….What energy essence is experienced in the time that was experienced in the womb was all that that entity (baby) needed to extend, of one of its tiny fragments into physical reality, let us say. To test the waters of physicality for itself, to experience just that much of physicality and the purpose has been served…. When the purpose is served to be born, it will be born. When the purpose is not served, there will never be even the beginning of the creation of a birth.”… so in other words, all your children came here to experience this reality including you, so don´t be afraid, trust yourself and know, just know that this baby is going to be ok, no matter what happens. Stay strong dear soul, <3 you

  • Omg best news ever. This is a sign from Jackson saying you can do this mummy I believe in you. Congratulations. Just seen your recent Video I am sooo sorry. Xx ❤❤❤❤❤❤����

  • Oh Lauren sweetheart, my heart breaks every time I hear what you’ve gone through with Blair. I hope Darcy will fill that hole in your heart of being a girl mom. Blair will never be forgotten… you are such an amazing mother to both Blair and Brody (and soon to be here Darcy). I wish with all my heart that both your kids on earth will always be healthy and happy. So sorry for your loss, it will never be ok…

  • This is heartbreaking, your perfect little baby girl picked another perfect little baby for you and a prefect little brother for her to watch over stay strong hunny x

  • a xwww you are so sweet, CONGRATULATIONS x your little primrose will be dancing in heaven with love. joy and happiness x you can do this x i see the happiness in the latter part of this video x thats the way she would love to see you x look after yourself x cant wait to see your happy ever after x lots of love x marie xxx

  • Your a Beautiful strong mother! my sister unfortunately gave birth to a beautiful stillborn girl and went on to get pregnant with a boy 2 month later she now can’t imagine life without him, it’s so hard to process sometimes that if her daughter would have been born full term and lived that her son would of never been born are family really struggle with that concept, but a baby born sleeping is loved just as much as one that is alive and are little girl is the apple of are familys eye we think about her every day and sometimes it gets hard and we’ll cry, other days we’re okay but it gets easier with time… I hope that you can find comfort in your little rainbow baby boy �� primrose is so lucky to have such a caring mummy she will be so proud xxxxx

  • My hearts breaking for you while watching this. The mix of emotions is so apparent and I’m feeling them for you through your words. I feel so pleased for your family and life really does work in funny ways sometimes xxx

  • Rachelle and Justin did this last year but they actually donated a Cuddle Cot in their baby girl’s name to the hospital where she was born because they didn’t have one when they lost Brynn and not a lot of hospitals do.

  • You were so beautifully eloquent and honest in such a confusing time of grief and going through every emotion under the sun. You should be exceptionally proud of yourself, not only to get through all of the heartache you’ve had to experience on this journey, but also for sharing your feelings so openly and showing others in similar situations that it’s ok to go through so many emotions. I know you’ve helped me get through 2 miscarriages and I’m sure there are countless others like me. Thank you.

  • I understand your pain. My son was born sleeping at 22 weeks 3 days on January 22nd, 2010. I didn’t have time with him or said goodbye. Wish someone would have told me to hold him tight because if not I would regret it. I feel your pain and even though I have two beautiful kids now I think about my Angel often ❤️Blessings on your new pregnancy!! Hugs

  • Hun I don’t really know what to say I don’t want to repeat what others have said, but in terms of your worried by othera judgement please don’t waste ur time with that. Like you said look after yourself!! Maybe even come off YouTube for a bit just so you look after yourself and baby l, I don’t know it’s just a thought! Give yourself time to adjust to everything going on xxx

  • How long you wait to get pregnant after your stillborn baby, I recently I lost my baby at 20 weeks and 5 days, it’s so painful I miss my baby so much, I’m so scare that I’ll no be able to get pregnant again because of my age 39.

  • I’m watching this video 8 months late but I’ll just say, nobody would ever be angry at you for getting pregnant again so soon. See it as a blessing from Prim, she saw how broken you were and sent you a special gift to make you happy again. I’m not a religious person at all but I am spiritual and believe everything happens for a reason. <3

  • I too got pregnant soon after losing a child. My baby, Angel, passed shortly suddenly after birth. I now have a 10 year old daughter, Alana, who is perfect. I’m so happy for you. Well wishes and love. ♥️♥️♥️♥️

  • Prayers that you have a baby thats healthy. Its ok… i hope you are ok and you can get through this. You got this. I hope you are ok.

  • This video will not only help mums to angel babies but hopefully it will help people who haven’t been through this awful loss understand. Primrose hasn’t been replaced Primrose now has a baby brother to watch down on from heaven. I lost a baby at the end of my pregnancy and wanted another baby as soon as I could, not to replace my first born. Many people don’t understand this though. I delivered a healthy baby earlier this year and I tell my baby all the time about our first born. Congratulations on the birth of Teddy x

  • Praying for your heart as I know this is not been easy. I lost a baby before I felt movement, only saw the heartbeat and that has been so painful that your experience was so much more painful. So glad you are getting a baby girl!

  • I know how you feel lovely <3 my daughter was stillborn in June this year, and I found out I was expecting again in October. I sadly miscarried when i was nearly 5 weeks. still not losing hope, but it's definitely made me more scared to try again now <3 best of luck to you xx

  • My William was born 10/6 @ 24 weeks gestation. He lived for 4 hours. He would be 20. James was full term stillborn in May and he would be 25. Holes in the heart that cannot be filled, that still cause me to cry.

  • I completely feel this… my situation is different to yours but I felt the same emotions when i got that line 8 months after a miscarriage… today im 31 weeks & still panicking that something is going to go wrong:( i have 2 boys already so i could not understand at all why i couldnt carry the one i lost, it broke my heart & it was the hardest thing to do to look after my other 2 while i was hurting so much �� congratulations on baby Teddy though, they heal your heart a little bit ��

  • I love watching your video on Teddy’s pregnancy update and th struggle after a loss. ❤️ I’m 14 weeks pregnant after my son passed away due to Potter syndrome and it definitely has been a roller coaster of emotion. I always try to look on the bright side and pray for a healthy baby ������

  • Awww hun you NEVER need to explain yourself. No sane person would ever think you are trying to replace Prim thats just ridiculous reasoning on their behalf. And explaining why you and your husband were intimateyou dont need to explain. I’ve just seen your birth blog so know this all ends well. Teddy was meant to be and I am SO happy for you x

  • Omg this actually broke my heart!! Stay strong and do not let anyone’s thoughts about this ruin this sparkly moment for you ♥️.. god’s plan and god knows you deserve the best..

  • Congratulations������ We just found out were pregnant with baby#6 �� Will be fun to follow our journey to healthy delivery stories and babies��

  • Love that you’re doing this and raising awareness for infant loss�� Our daughter was stillborn this April at 35 weeks. She had something similar to triploidy called mosaic Turner syndrome. This journey is haaaard. She was our first baby and now we’re praying for our rainbow. I’m thankful for people like you sharing your story, reminds us that we’re not alone♥️

  • Hi love!, I had my daughter July 29 2016 she passed away two days later. I found out I was pregnant June/July2017 a year later and I just had my baby boy February 2018. I know exactly how you feel when I saw that positive pregnancy test I cried for days I had a tiny spark of joy but like you said it’s frightening and all you wanna do is feel guilty and feel scared.. please stay positive I will pray for you and your baby! Your sweet baby girl prim will look after you and her little brother/sister! Stay strong sweetie❤️

  • Thank you for sharing your story. My baby girl passed away at 4 hours old on 8/29 and I’m devastated and heartbroken. She was my first pregnancy so I’m terrified it will happen again.

  • I had two miscarriages before falling pregnant with my son. I remember that first pregnancy test. I was so excited, and then it all hit me because I could have sworn I would miscarry again. I didn’t hold much joy after that until my ultrasound and that’s when I felt excited. It was still a roller coaster after that, but I could give birth any day now to my son. And I am so excited!!

  • What dose you take aspirin? I have had the same guide to take aspirin, put not yet pregnant. I had SGA-baby, born 40+2. He spent 13 days in nicu. Had mild blood poisoning, put antibiotics helped a lot. Sorry for your losses. I had my water too long, 28+ hours, so that’s why he had issues. He had also reflux, and it did make things diffigult. I breastfeeted him, for 3 long years.

  • did you have a peroid I had a stillborn 7 weeks ago at 37 weeks a little girl she was so perfect. and I no it’s so soon but I’m desperate to get pregnant agen. I still have not had a peroid yet. I’m sorry for your lost I understand how you feel xxx

  • I love your positivity and willingness to help others in the same situation. It’s absolutely beautiful �� keep telling your story and spreading awareness❤️

  • I’m new to your channel and I just think you’re such a strong woman,I can’t imagine what you must be feeling right now,but keep that spark of joy in your heart and it will grow with the baby,love and hope to you and your husband ✨

  • Thank you for this video. I just lost my baby two weeks ago at 24 weeks. He was my first baby. I haven’t been able to leave my house. I feel like no one understands. I wanted him so so much. I am not doing well now, but it makes me feel good to hear that other people have been through it and have survived.

  • I just found out I’m pregnant after 3 months of my son passing away at 23 weeks (stillbirth) I’m so scared. I feel selfish in a way but I feel blessed tho. I have so much mixed feelings. ��

  • My Aunt had very similar happenstances, she was told that she could never have children. My three cousins are proof that great things happen.

  • are you missing an E on the board? Is that a heart beart bear? How long has it been since your loss sorry I can’t remember. I wish I was vlogging when we were TTC with Ryder. Congrats girl so hapy for you, if you need any advice on how to handle it i’m here for you. Pregnancy after a loss is very hard and you can be nervous. How awesome that it can tell you so early that you are pregnant. Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for sticky baby dust xxoo

  • Congratulations Tammie and Matt and Sammy.I am so happy for all of you. I am so happy to be able to follow you on your journey to motherhood again. Will be looking for next update. Love your family.

  • Oh mama!! Congrats!!!
    I am 28 weeks with our little rainbow after losing our triplets at 21 weeks in October. You’re right, nothing can fill that part of your heart that Jackson has but being able to hold a little one again can be so healing. MUCH LOVE!

  • October is also a hard time for my husband and I, we lossed our son oct. 15th 2016 to SIDS this will be the 4th year as well of his passing I feel for you and my heart goes out to you as we were blessed with 2 beautiful daughters and we are due for our 3rd girl in January of 2020❤️❤️❤️❤️stay strong there’s many of us out her with you

  • when you started talking about her birthday cake ugh made me cry so much! Ugh these pregnancy hormones are killing me right now! Love you stay strong & positive soon you will have another sweet little girl in your arms!��

  • Breaks my heart that you feel urged to explain. You are in control of your life and if you chose to have another 10 minutes or 10 years after, this is your life. And I undoubtedly think that your Daughter sent your son to be in your arms. She got to hold your son before you ever knew he was coming.

  • I just started a channel, I have lost a pregnancy before and you’re an inspiration to me for making everyone not feel alone in it. Thank you, and you’re so pretty:)

  • I don’t have any children, but I can imagine how awful it is to loose a child. Everything that happens is God’s plan. I’m so excited for you Lauren you are going to have another baby girl. Your rainbow baby girl ��
    My husband and I want to start trying next year for a baby.

  • Sending so much love to you especially this month mama. Blair is watching over you. I lost my son too last year august at 24weeks and can relate it never gets easier.

  • This video breaks my heart, you don’t have to explain yourself to anyone. The main priority right now is YOU. Don’t worry about what people think or what people say. Your an amazing lady and a brilliant mother. I know it’s hard but stay positive. Xxx

  • My first son passed when he was almost 5 months old. Now my second son is 18 months and I am so thankful ♥️ we talk about our first as much as possible too. Love you. Love this.

  • Honestly you don’t have to explain the need to be with your partner ❤️ any of us who know what it’s like to lose a little one knows how much you need your partner. Prayers for your heart to heal, you deserve to be able to guiltlessly try again (I know you weren’t trying but you could have been without guilt) thank you for being so starkly honest with us

  • Aww I Cried My eyes out. Your Story still touches my heart in such a big big way!! I’m So Very Proud of you Lauren. ���� I know what your going through sweetie, like I’ve shared with you before. But you have a Big Heart and i know so many parents appreciate both you and Corey’s support! How amazing Y’all are!! I wish i could wrap my arms around you both and give y’all the biggest hug ever! I’ll Never Forget about your precious Blair �� Kudos to you for being strong enough, to come on here again and share your story about your Loss. When your Heart is Broken into. God Bless you Y’all. Keep your head up Beautiful. I Love Y’all So Big!!! ��������������

  • I get this. It hurts to watch because I’ve made the same vlogs (not posted them). I’m 6-7 weeks with my rainbow who is fine but I’m bleeding. They don’t know where the blood is coming from and it’s terrifying. Baby has a strong heartbeat, so we’ll see.
    It’s all so emotional isn’t it? My previous baby was an ectopic and I had to have surgery and my tube removed. It was awful. I fell pregnant straight away. I’ve also had two miscarriages.
    I’m glad little Teddy was born safe and well.

  • Tammie I’m so so happy for you, you deserve some good news. I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face either fir you I just want to give you a massive hug ❤️❤️

  • I am so scared. Our baby Abigail Hope was stillborn 7.5 weeks ago. We also didn’t plan to get pregnant but didn’t prevent it. I have not gotten a positive pregnancy test yet, but last week tested for ovulation after I realized what we had done and apparently was ovulating. So now I have so many mixed emotions. Part of me wants to be pregnant, part of me doesn’t… it’s so scary. I am taking pregnancy tests literally every day. I need to know one way or the other.

  • My daughter lost her first child to still born at 39 weeks it was so so hard not only to lose my first grandchild but to also watch my daughter going through a full labor and delivery without the reward of a live child she was so excited and fully ready when his heart stopped

  • I know that exact feeling!! After losing my 1st born a few minutes after she was born (potters syndrome) I got a positive pregnancy test & my husband & I just cried. Best feeling ever!! �� hugs & prayers

  • Hi Lorraine, I can exactly imagine what you are going through now. Your story remained me of my so much. And it is not an easy journey, in fact it is a heartbreaking on every aspect! I am now pregnant with my 6th baby, but I don’t have any kids. My diagnostic journey was long and bumpy. In UK everything seems to be black and white. There is no grey area for patients like us who need more tests and care, to understand and know all reasons why all this bad thing is happening to us. I felt so hopeless and depressed cos i thought i couldn’t do anything to make my situation better. But i did find a great specialist who run all necessary tests and now i know what to do to keep my unborn yet baby to make it through. I am 22 weeks pregnant full of hope and love for our addition to family. I am taking all my medication to keep this pregnancy going. Still very scared of what can come and how i will cope if anything go wrong. But i am in love and i will be fighting for my baby! I wish you good luck, lots of hope and strength to overcome any struggles!

  • I just had my 5th year anniversary to my miscarriage at 12 weeks on August 13th, it was incredibly hard since I’d just given birth to my second baby boy on Aug 9. I came across your channel when you took your pregnancy test when you got pregnant with Brody, and less than a year later I found out I found out I was pregnant with my rainbow baby and first son♥️ loss is so devastating and I hear your grief and can’t hold back the tears. I pray for great health in both Brody and Darcy, and your family. Thank you for being a voice for so many that still can’t talk about their loss.

  • Do NOT worry about what other people think honey. No one will think you are trying to replace your baby girl. You are right this baby was meant to be. Dont let anyone tell you different…there is no timeline on when to have another baby after a stillbirth.

  • You’re so strong, I’m so so so proud of you. I’m going to pray for this gorgeous baby goodluck. I wish you and your gorgeous family all the best

  • The beauty is your partner and you take comfort in each other. That comfort and love helped in the grieving process. Some people will never be able to get that. Everything you are expressing is normal. I think some people still try to act like difficult things don’t happen.

  • I know I’ve told you this before, but thank you for always being so open about loss and talking about your babies! My husband and I both still struggle with speaking openly about our angel babies, but you’ve given us so much hope. I know so many others feel the same. As always praying and sending love y’alls way.��������

  • I haven’t watched this video yet but I have been an avid follower for along time (pregnant with Brody long). I recently fell pregnant and I was so excited, ready, scared, and just didn’t enjoy my first trimester that great. But once I made that hump I started to calm down. I was proud I made it that long. Then Sept. 5th my world came crashing down. I was 21 weeks when I found out my cervix was open and I was in labor. By the time I made it in I was already 8cm. It was a hard birth not just emotionally but physically. I truly have no clue what to do with my life yet. But I’m excited to watch this video so I can understand how you did it. I know it’s a different journey for everyone but just seeing you push everyday gives me hope I can do it. Thank you for being so raw and honest even in the beginning. I hope I can find the strength you have Lauren truly. Thank tou

  • My dear friend just lost her first baby at 20 weeks today after her water ruptured with no medical explanation. I miscarried at 6 1/2 weeks with my first. Loss is so hard when the love is so strong. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and everyone reading this comment who has ever experienced loss no matter how far along������

  • Congratulations! I’ve had 2 stillbirths and we have been trying for 5 years. I’m currently in my 2 week wait! I’m very happy for you!

  • I love your videos mainly because I lost my only baby in January, he was stillborn just under 38weeks, again same with you 8weeks later I was pregnant, all emotions are high and I’m only 12weeks, it’s not the early it’s the later trimester I’m nervous about as there was nothing wrong with my baby it was massive shock, I hope and pray this baby is safe and well x

  • Aw congratulations Lorraine! �� I love seeing how much brighter you look on Instagram now, it’s so amazing that Prim sent you a gorgeous little gift to help you heal �� xx

  • My nephew was murdered at 5 months old by my sister’s partner. She got pregnant again 5 months later, this brings up so much for me with the feelings I’ve followed my sister through. She us set to meet her rainbow baby in july

  • I didn’t think you could have sex again so soon after a birth. I thought the vagina would be too fragile and traumatised still? Genuine medical question? How long do most ppl wait? Thanks x lovely video sorry for your loss xx

  • I’m so sorry. I don’t blame you not sharing before now. Primrose is going to be a great guardian angel for this baby a others. I’m a new viewer so don’t know you.
    You’re due 2 weeks after my next grandchild. Hopefully you will be induced at 38 weeks will be praying for you alongside my daughter

    Ah just seen you’ve given birth. Congratulations.

  • I’m 13 weeks pregnant after 4 misscarrages and a loss of my daughter at 22 weeks pregnant It was only 9 weeks after loosing her I fell pregnant and my anxiety is through the roof but I have an amazing doctor and midwife looking after me I’m also having a little boy after loosing my little girl ����

  • Yay! Congrats!!!…Do you think the conceive plus product helped you conceive? I just started using it, my husband and I have been trying for almost 2 years no with no luck getting pregnant ��

  • Congrats momma. I’m so happy for you and your lovely family. You will have a strong, healthy and beautiful baby in 9 monthss!!!!��❤️ baby has got the best two big bros ever.����������

  • I’m looking at you in this video and my heart is breaking because it shows how careful you are with being excited about this pregnancy. I’m so happy that Teddy is here and healthy. I can’t imagine how it felt to be grieving for Primrose and being happy and excited for Teddy growing inside of you… you are a true hero.

  • You’re already positively glowing with this beautiful result! I cried, and I don’t. I remember when you were in the rawest stage of grief, and seeing you smile and shriek now makes me so inexplicably overjoyed for your family. Congratulations! ����

  • I feel for you… Honestly anyone who criticises you are not walking in your shoes.. Best of luck honey x x my heart goes out to you ����

  • You are such a mighty, powerful woman. You inspire other women so much. Giving other mamas hope. For a life that doesn’t seem worth living. It’s never easy & it never goes away. There is always a light… we just have to find it, open or eyes to see it, then shine it onto one another������

  • I just found your youtube channel. Watching your sharing the remembrance box for Blair. I was told the little silk dresses they make for the babies is made out of donated wedding dresses. I will continue to watch your channel. ❤❤

  • Thinking of you and Corey this month. Thank you for sharing yours and Blair’s story. Can’t wait for Darcy to be here. Special rainbow baby girl ��

  • Dearest Lauren,

    I have been subscribed to your channel for a while now and have been watching every vlog since you announced your pregnancy. I wanted to say that I appreciate you taking the time and having courage to film these videos as I feel normal when I see that some of our feelings are the same. I lost our first baby last year in August at 19+4 due to cervical incompetence. It was the darkest time of our lives and I still cry at the drop of a hat some days… a song a date, a toy, someone with his name. I felt like the world continued and mine had ended and nobody was remembering that I’d just suffered this loss and showing me photos of their friends newborn babies. I just wanted to shout at them that didn’t they realize that I’d had a baby too. Flash forward 1 year and we’ve had another miscarriage at 6 weeks and I’m now pregnant at 17+1. As the 19+4 day mark is approaching I’m getting more and more anxious and I can’t stop this feeling that history is repeating itself. I was thinking of you in the past week and was wondering if you may have been feeling the same but I wasn’t able to say anything. When you said that it’s hard that you thought you’d never be a mother to a daughter I felt that I really understood how you could be feeling. I’m so apprehensive about finding out the sex of our baby at our next appointment which coincidentally is exactly 19+4.

    I wish you the very best in these final weeks and look forward to meeting your little girl.

    To all those mammas out there your stronger than you think and I wish you every hope of baby dusk in your future.

  • My daughter’s anniversary is this month. She would’ve been 1yrs old. I’m currently 30wks pregnant with my son and I’m definitely conflicted balancing grief over my daughter and reserved excitement for my son. I appreciate you for sharing your story and how you honor your daughter.

  • Made me cry, it’s crazy, I was just thinking about you guys about a week ago and prayed you’d get a positive test soon, (I just had my rainbow baby after a devastating loss). Love you guys so much, you’re such a wholesome, sweet family.

  • I’m so glad you shared your experience it was helpful to see someone who has just been though it and had their rainbow baby soon after, it’s hope…I’m 18 and lost our daughter 4 weeks ago at 23 weeks pregnant. There’s no replacing the baby that was lost but I really want to do it all over again and pray her brother or sister gets to come home safe and sound. I’m so thrilled for you that you got your rainbow

  • Could you please make a video telling us what you did, if anything to conceive? If you don’t want too I also understand! Congrats!!!!

  • My wife pregnancy test is positive and from last 2months periods not came of my wife, and already we are having baby of 5months, please advise

  • It would be awesome for your YT community to be able to do something like this FOR YOU in Blair’s name and do a different project every year.

  • Yes!!!!

    Congratulations!!!! May God bless your womb and your child. May you have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby (babies?)lol… you never know!

    I am sure your little Jackson is very happy for you guys!��
