Went to my OB and confirmed I did miscarry over the weekend. She said we can TTC in 2 cycles, which we will do.
The hardest part will be telling our 9 year old daughter this weekend, when my DH gets home.
Barb - I'm so sorry about your m/c - I've been through it twice and it's just plain miserable. I will keep you in my prayers that in no time, you'll be pregnant & showing a big belly - btw, some doctors are now saying that you don't have to wait any cycles in order to start trying. It's worth asking anyway - best of luck to you & again, my condolences - jen
Thank you. Sorry you've gone through it twice. I hope and pray this will be the first and last.
I wander if she wants me to wait 2 cycles because she said I will bleed for about 5-7 more days. They will not do a D&C. Thank God.
Barb - how are you doing? To be honest, I really would question waiting two cycles. Not to be a rebel but I know most doctors would say waiting two cycles (or three) helps date a new pregnancy but hey - that's what early u/s's are for, right? I'm glad you don't have to go through a D&C - are you on some kind of meds?
I'm sorry you're having to go through all of this -hang in there, friend! - jen
Oh Barb, so sorry to hear of your loss. I am going thru the same thing and you are in my thoughts and prayers. Good for you that you are trying again! I am also not giving up. Take care if yourself honey.
Barb and MPA, I empathise with you both, I was there twice. It's devastating I know. My husband and I didn't wait. Basically I had a period about 2 weeks after the miscarriage and then fell pregnant straight away so was pregnant again within 4 weeks. I think the waiting helps the emotions settle but your body will do it's own thing no matter what doctor's say. I must admit I grieved for a very long time after the second one. My thoughts are will you both. Let us know how you are over the coming months and I hope we hear + news VERY soon. xxOOxx
Thank you! Yes, it is devastating but I know it's for the best...only God is in control and He knows best!
I think, emotionally, I'm fine and ready. Not knowing when AF is coming is hard for me because I have tracked my periods for YEARS and am very regular. Although, my PMS is usually a good indicator, but with this miscarriage, that might effect that, who knows!
