What a blessing to get pregnant again in the same year after having a miscarriage. The same thing happened to me. I was so relieved to get pregnant again and worried about miscarrying again too just like you. I was so sad when I miscarried after we had tried for so long to get pregnant. But then I was delighted when I found out that I got pregnant again. My hormones went crazy during my pregnancy and from what I understand a lot of those hormones control the appetite. If I had eaten much of anything beyond crackers and ginger ale that first month of pregnancy I probably would have thrown it up anyway with all the morning sickness I had so it's probably nothing major that you have going on. You could double check with your health care provider just to be sure though. Try to relax and just do things you enjoy to help you de-stress. Congratulations on your upcoming new arrival. Take care of yourself. I will be praying for you both.

I couldn’t get anything down my first couple of weeks but the doctor says the baby is perfectly healthy!

Hey there OP!
Let me first say congratulations on your rainbow! I know how scary this process can be during a rainbow pregnancy, especially so soon after your previous loss. However, what you're experiencing is completely normal! <3 I'm a mama and a birth doula with specialized training in bereavement and rainbow situations. Appetite loss is very normal in the first trimester along with nausea and sometimes vomiting. This is due to the rapid shifts in your hormones. You may also experience fatigue, muscle aches, and light cramping (this is your uterus growing and ligament loosening). IF, however, you are ever concerned call your provider, call the L and D at the hospital or just go in to the ER and get checked. Bleeding and severe cramping are the two major signs most people experience in miscarriage. If you begin to experience those, definitely go in and get checked because though they can be signs, it doesn't necessarily mean miscarriage either.

I'd also suggest hiring a doula. She will be able to walk with you throughout your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience and help you with questions like these and so much more! Yes, I am a doula myself, but only after I had my own children because I knew what an important role my doula played in my pregnancies and births! If you need help finding one in your area, you can search by your zip code via doulamatch.net to start out. :-)

Congratulations again, Mama!
