  • Plz can anyone help me i just diagnosed with molar pragnancy because i have started spoting so now i want to travel to another country for dnc can i travel in 2 days

  • Thank you for posting this. I have struggled with infertility for over 2 years. We finally got pregnant with the help of a fertility doctor and had a mmc at 7 weeks (found out at 9 weeks). We got pregnant quickly after that and had a complete molar. My doctor only made us wait 3 months. I am now 6 weeks pregnant and have the same brown discharge that I had with my molar and I am worried it either came back or I have new molar…The waiting game for ultrasounds is horrible. And you are right, it is just bad, bad luck. I hope mine has a happy outcome like yours.

  • Congratulations on your pregnancy and its wonderful that you recovered from the molar pregnancy. Did you eat a special diet to reduce your hcg?

  • You explained your story so well. I’m sorry you had to go through your first pregnancy that way but you got your miracle in the end.

  • my daughter Yarizel passed away on Jan 08 2019 she was born early on Nov.30.18 at 23weeks 6days My water broke @ 21 weeks from pprom she only lived 39Days…& now I’m pregnant again I’m happy But so scared but I’m hoping & praying everything will be ok for my Rainbow baby ��

  • I found out that i had a cmp last week at 9 weeks and i have my d&c tommorow. It’s my first pregnancy and it’s honestly really scary hearing about how i might have to possibly do chemo. I hope everything goes well and don’t need to do the treatment ☹️��

  • Thank you so much for the video it was very helpful. I have question for you, did your doctor suggest you to take any pills for this pregnancy since you had a miscarriage in August? And do you recommend taking any pills to avoid miscarriage? (I had only one miscarriage 2 months ago and I’m now 4 weeks pregnant).

  • Hi, Im from Malaysia, ive also had a molar pregnancy(complete molar) june ago. I was ao despressed, so sad. No one can talk to. They thought that it was just a normal miscarriage. Molar pregnancy is way more terrible than a normal miscarriage. I cried a lot, i dont know what to do. And then i found this Molar Pregnancy Group at facebook. I told them m experience and i felt so sooo relief. Bcs i thought i was the only one who have it, but then they share their experience too. But after a month of blood work, mine drop less than 2. Which is good, the doctor told me that it was a big success bcs you dont have to go to the chemo therapy. Yet still, i was sooo scared. I’d do my everymonth check up for blood work for almost 6 month now. Finally the doctor said that i can conceive on january next year. Deep in my heart, i was so scared if that can be happen again. BUT THEN, i heard you said that have faith. Your video really really make me feel sooo relief. Bcs most of the patients had partial molar pregnancy. Meanwhile, i had a complete molar. Im not so sure the differences between these two, but what i know is google said that complete molar is more dangerous partial molar is. I was cried again, and i found this video, and i believe that it was just a badluck. I love your video, it gives me hope❤️ thankyouuu. Pray for me to have a mirable baby like you too ������

  • Thanks for making this video. I had a d&c 2 weeks ago and found out recently that it was a partial molar pregnancy. I’m pretty devastated but this gives me hope��

  • i also had molar pregnancy..but really this video gives me some positive energy… but still I feel some pain about about what’s going to happen..I have undergone d&c treatment… now I want to know what to do next.. what type of treatment should I need to continue…please reply me

  • Thanks for sharing your story!! I am having a D&C tomorrow for a molar pregnancy. I am also a boy mom & my son was probably the most devastated to learn that we were not having a babyit is so helpful to hear your storyhope you had a healthy delivery of your sweet girl! <3

  • So, I just watched this video for a second time bc I find it comforting going through this myself, and goodness we have a ton in common. I’m also 28, hairdresser, and a boy mom. Thanks for sharing. Trying to focus on my blessings and a somewhat hopeful future.

  • Anyone looking for resources:

    There is a Facebook group called “My Molar Pregnancy Support Group” full of ladies that have gone through this.

    There is also one called “After My Molar Pregnancy Support Group” for women that are TTC and continuing to grow their families after a molar pregnancy.

  • I lost one of my babies during a twin pregnancy at around 11 weeks. The other baby girl was luckily born healthy but the feeling of loss stayed. Then we got pregnant again and….they were twins…again!! This time I got 2 healthy girls, so I actually have 2 rainbow babies����. Altogether we have 4 girls now but I will never forget our 7th member of the family.

  • Im a little behind you I am now 6 1/2 weeks with my first pregnancy thanks for sharing it really helps specially for is first-timers… i started with nausea at the end of week 5 and it has been horrible can’t eat anything i just feel sick all day

  • Thank you for this video. I too had a molar pregnancy this past September. It was a tough road these past 6 months. I was with a midwife and I didn’t have an US until close to 13 weeks. I was referred to an OB whose been amazing. I ended up having a d&c 2 days later. Then I had to get my blood tested every week until I hit negative, which was at the beginning of November. Last Wednesday I had my 6 month follow up appointment with my OB. I went in thinking I was going to get bad news, like we still have to wait a few more months to start trying. Well he told us that my levels have been negative for awhile so we could start trying again. The last thing he told us is that he hopes to see me soon. I was so thrilled and excited. I’m hoping and praying that this is the month we conceive our rainbow baby. If not then hopefully sooner. �� Through this journey I’ve learned so much. To not be bitter, to be patience, and to have joy in the midst of sorrow.

  • Thanks for sharing, I am still coping with my loss after a molar pregnancy and very scared about the follow up monitoring and results, hoping it all goes well. I am going for my third blood test tomorrow. Your story is very reassuring and helpful, best wishes for you and your family, God bless you.

  • Thank you for doing this video. My doctor believes I have a complete molar and my d&c is scheduled for Monday. I have been literally freaking out on & off worried sick. I have been googleing and doing lots of research. I’m older then you, 39 so I already feel that further complicates things for me. Luckily I do have a perfect son already from my first pregnancy and realize now how lucky I am. I know exactly how you feel. It does give me hope that things can correct themselves and get better, that this isn’t the end but at the same time I just feel so very unlucky and sad like why me. I have never heard of these types of miscarriages in all my life. I just don’t understand how conceiving a baby can possibly lead to something so harmful to my body. I’m actually very anxious to get this d&c now. I’m just starting to feel more nauseous. My levels were up to 72,0000 on Thursday they were 67,000 at my first scan on Tuesday. So they are going up only a little I guess. I’m just hoping things turn out good like your situation. I’m so happy for you!! ����

  • Thank you for posting this. I just found out yesterday during my ultrasound that I have a molar pregnancy. There are hardly any videos on it so I appreciate you posting this. My doctor also told me not to google, and I didn’t listen to her so I’ve been panicking all night. I have my D&C next week. How was your D&C experience? I’m afraid of being put to sleep.

  • Im 29… also have a tilted uterus and had a cmp and d&c at 10 wks (6 wks ago). I get my next round of blood results this week and hoping for a decrease if not a miraculous 0. Thank you for sharing your story. It has definitely been a lonesome experience; no one I know personally had ever heard of a molar pregnancy or knows anyone that has gone thru it. I found your video encouraging as I feel like there is a mountain to climb ahead of me.

  • Thank you for sharing your story. I just lost my right tube last friday. I hope will be able to concieve soon with a viable pregnancy.

  • I love this! Subscribed for sure!:) I just found out that I’m pregnant with my 4th baby (technically 5) and it also happens to be our rainbow baby. I’ve had three full term pregnancies before and never miscarried before so i DEFINITELY agree that it is so different being pregnant after experiencing that. I am so excited for you, I can already get that vibe that you’re gonna be an amazing mom:) WOOHOO!!:) I am vlogging my journey as well and IM SO NERVOUS!!!! hahaha

  • Thank you sooo much for your story. I had surgery last week for my ectopic pregnancy. I went to the doctor on Wednesday morning for my first ultrasound by 1 pm I had to see the doctor by 9pm same day I was in the ER and by 2 am in the OR for surgery to remove ectopic pregnancy and lost of my right Fallopian tube.The day just went so fast. Me and my husband definitely want children. Your story give me so much hope! Thank you

  • This video made me feel so much better. I have had a few miscarriages and I am 4w5d today just trying to make it without falling apart. I have yet to make it 7 weeks but I am claiming my blessing this time around! God Bless you!

  • Isn’t it crazy how many things you can blame on yourself when you’re pregnant?! At any other time you would know that getting sick was just bad luck, but when you’re pregnant you go on a massive guilt trip

  • I never knew that my youngest is a Rainbow Baby.. You see, I lost my supposed to be second baby way back 2015.. And exactly a year after that I got pregnant to my youngest.. And she was born the day of the due of the baby that I lost.. Now, she’s 3 years old and she’s one sweet little girl..

  • I just got my positive! Due 10/3 been trying for 20 months. Never expected test would be positive. Only thing I have is sore boobs, some cramping, and back pain, just like normal Pms stuff.

  • Wow almost had the same exact thing happened to me. Last week I got really sick, cold chills, nauseous, no appetite, cramps that was very similar to when I gave birth 2yrs ago. I thought it was the stomach flu and wanted to take day quill but I knew there was a slight chance I was pregnant so I waited a couple days which I was 2 days late from my period. Took 2 pregnancy test and boom both came out positive. So on top of being sick and finding out I was pregnant, my 2yr old got sick, but luckily my husband wasn’t sick so he was a big help too.

  • I watched your video about on “how to get pregnant” and immediately bought the pregmate ovulation test strips because I had been trying for 6 months and COULD not figure out when I was ovulating( turns out I was ovulating later then the apps told me I was)
    … so I watched your video and did exactly what you said testing every single day at 10&2……. took my pregnancy test (or 2) and got a POSITIVE! I am 5 weeks and 4 days and cannot thank you enough for your informative videos!!!!!

  • thank you for this video i had an ectopic pregnancy in March 2015. i had two shots of methotrexate but my tube still ruptured i had emergency surgery. they of course had to take one tube. do you have any advice about getting pregnant after ectopic? me and my SO finally decided to try again.

  • This video definitely made me cry. Love the authentically. This is my first pregnancy and i’m excite but scared to be to happy and get my heart crushed. I am going to take your advice on the positive affirmations. Thank you, blessings and baby dust your way!!

  • Here we go again! I just finished your last week by week saga. My daughter was born 12/30 via c section, she was frank breech as well. Congratulations on your second baby!

  • Hi this video popped up at the time I’m worrying… I am currently 7 weeks pregnant, I did an ultrasound last week and the doctor saw the gestational sac only, he said it could be embryonic pregnancy… I dont believe that as I said it might still be too early to detect. I have to repeat in 2 weeks but it’s really stressing me out as I’m worried

    Have u done any ultrasounds so early? I cant watch the video atm as I do not have data�� please respond anyone. Much love

  • I’ve been watching your updates with your first �� I’m currently pregnant with my second girl 29 weeks! Congrats to you! I’m excited for the new updates!

  • I’m so happy to follow your journey! I followed your 1st pregnancy when I was pregnant with my little girl… I am so glad that I watched your C-section delivery multiple times because I ended up with an emergency C. Seeing how wonderful your c-section was made me feel so much better about going to the OR. I had norovirus when I was 6 weeks with her and boy… was it miserable! All the love to you and your family… also… your due date is my 31st birthday!

  • I am so so happy for you and your family! I just had my first baby in November and your weekly videos got me through each week. I am praying for an easy and healthy pregnancy for you ❤️

  • Thank you for making this video, I’m recovering from surgery two days ago after an ectopic pregnancy, but sadly I did loose one of my tubes. Hearing you say that you never got to feel happy at the fact you were pregnant because as soon as you found out there was the worry something was wrong, is exactly how myself and my husband feel. You feel robbed of something so many other people get some much joy from. The feelings you had are exactly where I am now, and it’s such a comfort knowing that others feel the same. It’s a terribly hard experience to go through. I hope that we will have a happy ending with a rainbow baby in the future too.

  • So happy for u.. �� my wife had 2 MC which were result of blighted ovum.. now shes pregnant and we just went for our first appt where we saw e heart flicker.. it just warms our hearts when we saw w heartbeat as its e first time we saw any.. it’s our first viable pregnancy.

  • Thank you so much for sharing. For some reason this pregnancy which is my 4th child, and I had a miscarriage before, but it was different from yours. But either way I feel your pain. But I have been so worried about this one, and had what I felt was scary/you dont ask questions. But you showing and giving that information is the most bravest and honorable thing you could of ever done for women. Thank you so much for sharing, and truly appreciate your sharing. Looking forward for what is to come in my first appointments. (Deep down inside still kinda scared.)

  • Hello how’s the pregnancy �� I.m currently 6/7 weeks pregnant and I’m soooo scared as iv lost 2 in the past. Watching your videos really seem to help me I don’t know why but.. They do �� I have not been the hospital because of the virus outbreak and I have no idea what to do next xx

  • I’m 7.6 weeks and we got to see the heart beat on Monday. I’m so excited �� it was the cutest little heart beat I’ve ever seen. I can’t wait to hear it.

  • Ugh, I’m 7 weeks today and have that constant state of nausea allllllll day long but no throwing up. I also have insomnia, tossing and turning all night.

  • Haven’t seen your YouTube in three years and I was pregnant around that time and again I am pregnant baby #3 and you are a couple weeks ahead of me again:)

  • Thank you for making this video, I just lost twins because of a partial molar pregnancy. My D&C was a month ago, I was 11.5 weeks at the time of the surgery but we had known since 8 weeks that something wasn’t right because the twins were very small. However, we didn’t know it was molar unruly after surgery because they sent the placenta tissue in for testing and I just got the results that it was molar last week. It so so helps to hear other people’s stories. This was my first pregnancy and I know lots of women who have had miscarriages but I don’t know anyone else that has miscarried twins or had a molar pregnancy or had a twin molar pregnancy, so it can be extremely lonely. Thank you again for sharing your story.

  • Just want to thank you for mentioning and bring even a little awareness to HG, were almost Due date twins (June 30th here) and dealing with HG has been a huge struggle, but seeing it become more known about is awesome:)

  • The worst part is that I get hungry, but nothing sounds appetizing. Then the little bit that I eat, makes me nauseous. I mean.. I feel you about feeling sick. Let’s hope it doesn’t last x)

  • So wierd.. In Norway you don’t “get” a real follow up before week 12. I mean.. You can ask for an appointment, but the doctors say it’s really no point before week 12 �� and the ultrasound appointment you get in week 18. You can order one in private clinics but man.. That is expensive �� (every appointment is free when you are pregnant, exept if you go to a private clinic ��)

    And you normally just get one ultrasound (week 18).
    Next ultrasound is 1 week after your duedate (if you go over it of course)

    I gave birth to a boy with a heart condition (nobody knew about this before he was born), so in my next pregnancy i will get more follow ups ��)
    My 8month babyboy is stable now tho ❤️

  • I’m 24 weeks with my first, we’re having a girl �� from 6 and a half weeks to about 13 weeks I had such bad sickness! It was awful. Now that I’m well into my second trimester I’m able to pretty much eat all the foods I went off at the start of my pregnancy but I do sometimes get the odd day where I will still feel very sick and sometimes I am sick in the morning but no where near as bad at the start! 16 weeks for me to go now it’s crazy how quickly it goes by, so exciting! Congratulations on your second baby mama! Praying for a healthy baby for you both ��

  • Do you feel comfortable showing what your c-section scar looks like now? �� I had my son like 3 weeks after Cole and mine is still super red and raised so I think that would be an interesting discussion for c-section mamas!

  • My sister just had an ectopic pregnancy. She had emergency surgery on July 31st 2018. Her left fallopian tube almost ruptured. She was 8 weeks pregnant. Thanks for sharing your story.

  • Ahhhh, congratulations!!!! Wow, time just FLEW by! I remember seeing your first pregnancy video and it feels like that just happened!

  • I loved watching your first pregnancy videos as well as these ones now. I am going through my first pregnancy now I am 26 weeks with a healthy baby girl❤ hang in there I know morning sickness sucks I had it through out my whole first trimester!

  • I just got a bfp a couple hours ago for baby #4. I am excited but a little stressed. I haven’t told my husband yet. Right after I took it I heard him say he may be layed off the last 2 week of August and his job is struggling right now. I haven’t even started my first day of work yet. I want to tell him but at the same time I don’t want to stress him out right now so I might keep it to myself for a little bit.

  • I’m. Currently going through an ectopic pregnancy! Iv had methotrexate injections twice now and my pregnancy is slowly dissolving! Glad Iv come across your video xx

  • If i am pregnant I’ll be 4 weeks. IM SO TIRED. Like next level exhaustion. I was supposed to get my period today and didn’t.. I’m going to give it a few days i guess!

  • Thankyou for sharing your experience. I’m so happy things turned out well for you. I’m 35 and was pregnant in August. A biopsy from a d&c 2 months back confirmed it was molar. It was atypical and appeared as an anembryonic pregnancy. My hcg dropped to 217 ( the highest was 127,000). It has been 3 weeks now and the are now up to 226. My first son was an emergency c section also. He was born with a birth defect that has been keeping all sorts of doctors on their toes for the last 6 years. We were blessed with a brother for him who is almost 2 and healthy. The thought of caring for both children while on chemo (and praying its effective) is disheartening. I know what you mean saying you feel like there is something wrong with you for these heartbreaking things to be keep happening to you. I pray things will be great for you from here on.

  • Wow, so long since I saw one of your videos! That last bump is a now a lovely boy! Congratulations on your latest babe in the making!! Hoping that you can do the suck in as last time, its not only cool to see how the baby is laying but I think its fun too! kind regards, nette

  • Congratulations mama ���� So happy for you. I lost my twin daughters at 21 weeks last year and I’m currently 15 weeks pregnant with my rainbow baby and she’sa girl ❤️❤️������

  • I’m currently pregnant with my rainbow baby. I lost my son 5 days after he was born. He had multiple organ failure and they don’t know why. I’m petrified, how do we get through this? I want to be happy like I was the first time. But I feel like I’m holding my breath. I want to embrace this pregnancy like the last time but I am so afraid…..

  • Thank you for this!!! I was 7 wks 6dys pregnant at this point and I am currently dealing with an ectopic pregnancy. I was sent from my OBGYN to the hospital I just went in for a check up thinking I had a UTI or a yeast infection. They decided while at my OBGYN to do an ultrasound to see if they could check how everything is going and hopefully hear a heartbeat. But it all started This morning I woke up in extreme pain in my lower abdomen and went to pee and there was blood. So at the ER they gave me the methotrexate shots in my hips and now I have to wait and get blood work done for the next 2 weeks. I am sooo confused and upset at the same time. They sent me home with pain meds and lorazepam because we have been trying for a while and were sooo excited! But the baby wasn’t in the tube they are positive that it attached on the outside of my uterus instead of inside.

  • I’m 11 weeks with a loss at 19 weeks in September. Waiting for our 12 week scan in a week to see how he is developing (I don’t know if it’s a boy but I’d rather say he/she rather than it). I had a missed miscarriage at 10 weeks first pregnancy, full term happy healthy baby boy who is now 21 months, then a baby with chromosomal abnormalities at 19 weeks in September. I’ve had a lot of bleeding and pain this time around but he seems to have a good strong heart beat. Wishing you all the luck and baby dust in the world. 2019 is our year xx

  • This is amazing, congratulations!! ������ I loved your bumpdates with your first ��❤️ You clearly haven’t had a problem getting pregnant which is such a beautiful blessing but have you read up at all on Luteal Phase Defect? Your LP is very short if your period is expected at 9dpo.. maybe something to look into if it ever poses an issue for future TTC cycles ❤️❤️❤️

  • Can’t wait to hear about your symptoms.
    I had an ectopic about 2 yrs ago, and last year I went through a miscarriage.
    I’m now 11wks:)

    Really happy for you, and your family.

  • Congratulations! Your videos with you first pregnancy are my favourite to watch every week I’m at 23 weeks now. Super excited for you, hope your kicking the 1st trimester’s butt! ♥️

  • Pregnancy after loss is so hard. I was so anxious during the first trimester with my rainbow baby. I had a subchorionic hematoma and I thought I was miscarrying again. But thankfully, I am currently 34 weeks with a healthy baby girl and everything progressed fine (and the hematoma resolved). Wishing you a wonderful pregnancy and I look forward to your future videos!

  • So happy for you all such a beautiful family ������ I can’t wait to plan my next pregnancy after we get married this fall! You give me baby fever lol! Blessings to you and your family ❤️

  • Congratulations!!! ������ I followed your weekly updates with my first baby. He is 7 months old now and hoping to try for our second when he is around a year. Were you breastfeeding while TTC? I hear it’s difficult to get pregnant while breastfeeding and I would like to nurse my son until 12-15 months old.

  • I’m almost 20 weeks with my rainbow baby boy and it’s extremely hard to get attached to this baby cause of the miscarriage but try to enjoy your pregnancy as much as you can�� It feels like this pregnancy is flying by lol

    Edit:
    Try out the Ovia Pregnancy app. It’s my favorite.

  • Thanks so much for sharing! I am currently going through this. I found out I was pregnant with our first at the beginning of the month and less than 2 weeks later was in the ER having the shot to dissolve the pregnancy. Praying that when we try again the next pregnancy results in our rainbow baby.

  • Hi! I’m a new subscriber.. I just found your channel 2 weeks ago.
    My husband and I were diagnosed with fertility issues on both sides a few years back. They told us our chances of conceiving natural were less than 1% and if we wanted a baby we would have to undergo fertility treatments. So long story short, 5 years later on 12/26/18, I unexpectedly found out I was pregnant (naturally!) and I’m due Aug 27th too!!!
    Congrats on your pregnancy! I can’t wait to see more videos!

  • I’m SOOO happy for you, praise God! I’ve been following you and praying for you. I just got married in July and DH and I started trying ASAP because I’m 38 ��. I got preg 3rd cycle but had a devastating mmc with d&c in Oct, similar to yours. So grateful we fell preg again 2nd cycle after mc (due Oct 3)!!! ❤���� I kept praying for you, thinking that if God did it for you He could bless me too! Pray for me, I’m so worried!

  • Thank you for sharing this. I’m currently going through this myself. i found out when i was 11wks pregnant and a day after finding out i ended in the emergency room. it’s very confusing and overwhelming to say the least. your video gave me hope that i will be able to have a normal pregnancy.

  • Experiencing an ectopic pregnancy is one of the most devastating events in a woman’s life because even if the pregnancy was not planned or confirmed, the shock of what has happened can leave a lasting emotional impact. Statistics suggest that as many as one in 90 women experience an ectopic pregnancy and some may not even know, as the egg can die and be reabsorbed by the body before the pregnancy is confirmed. However, for women whose ectopic pregnancy is detected, even though the egg will be at a very early stage of development, the sense of loss can be extremely traumatic. Sadly, however, not all pregnancies are successful and in the case of an ectopic pregnancy the earlier a diagnosis is made, the better the outcome for the mother as the egg will not be viable. The symptoms of ectopic pregnancy include pain which may be concentrated on one side of the abdomen and may be mild or severe; as well as vaginal bleeding, which also may be severe. I had a friend who had experienced the same. It was so painful to her. But with some medication at Bio tex it really helped in relieving her pain.

  • Make sure you eat lots of greens baby needs folic acid and occasionally look into eating salmon for omega 3’s. Lots of dried fruit and nuts for snacking is good. Also guacamole dip and pretzels it’s a good way to change up chips and dip. And if you crave pizza opt for a spinach and cheese pizza. (These helped tips helped my cravings alot). But I’m not gonna lie Tamales. Tostadas. Carnitas. Pupusas. And Mole were real bad cravings of mine.

  • Just found your channel! I am now 5w 3d pregnant after four miscarriages �� following your journey ❤️ I am on progesterone because I have low progesterone so hoping and praying all goes well with this pregnancy. I’m due September 25 ��

  • oh my goodness! I have been thinking of doing a video on my channel about my ectopic pregnancy and rainbow baby…..so I typed it in to see what else was about and found you and you’re video. my heart skipped a beat at the end when you said ‘it brought us our rainbow baby, James’ my rainbow baby after ectopic is James:) made me smile. congratulations, so happy for you xx

  • New subby! I’m currently 35 weeks with our rainbow baby boy. I understand totally what you mean by finding out your pregnant after a loss. It is different for sure. Good luck to you! Prayers for happy pregnancy!

  • I’m in the 4th trimester right now with my rainbow baby! But I definitely want to stay tuned because I cannot wait to see that precious baby in August or September (if you go over)!! When I was pregnant with Bruce, I felt like it was really hard to enjoy my pregnancy. I was constantly looking for signs of miscarriage and every time I went in to the doctor id hold my breath until his heart beat was picked up on the doppler. But I had an amazing doctor, he told me that I could come in anytime just to hear the heart beat because of what he called “miscarriage PTSD”. But let me tell you girl, I did not stop worrying that something bad was going to happen. Once I hit viability week (24 weeks), I thought I would relax, but no.. And it doesn’t stop after they are born either. The first few weeks we were home from the hospital, I was up EVERY hour just staring at him watching him breath.
