professorplum : fingers crossed for you!! I know it’s so hard to let yourself get excited. I think lonely is such an appropriate word. For so many weeks I just felt lonely. Good luck to you!!
eeniebeans : so sorry you went through that, and congrats on your rainbow baby :). I still think about my miscarriage often, but I do find myself thinking about how much I love this baby (currently 19 weeks preg.) already. I hope when she/he is here I will find peace with my miscarriage!
DrunkInLove : i found this quote shortly after I got pregnant again, and sometimes I just have to repeat it over and over to myself. If I’m going to miscarry again, I’m going to miscarry again and there isn’t anything I can do about it, so for right now, I try and just be in the moment. This quote has helped a lot.

First, congrats on your pregnancy 🙂 Second, thank you for sharing! I really enjoyed this article, I also relate to it in so many levels. However, I miscarried last month, on June 24. I was told to not have sex for 2 weeks and now at the 3rd week mark, I am not still fond of the idea but know that I must let go and there is no other way to conceive another baby! he-he.
Do you mind sharing your experience post-miscarriage? How long did it take, was it the next cycle? I am terrified of not being fully at 100% at the same time I am 33 and we want a family of 3 so I better get to work! This is so confusing 🙁

professorplum : I am so excited and thrilled beyond belief to see you here!! I didn’t even want to join this board until I saw the heartbeat. I kept waiting for the bleeding or cramping to begin or for my doctor to tell me it was all over. I really hope that everything continues to go well for you.

snowflake1234 : That’s perfect, thanks for sharing. It’s so hard to just have faith in your body and your life.
MuseForever : First off, so sorry for your loss. For me, we waited exactly 14 days after my D&C to BD again. I had a feeling I was about to ovulate and didn’t want to skip a cycle (Dr said it was ok to jump back in). It was a little weird at first, but not painful or anything. We didn’t concieve that first cycle, AF returned about right on time. The next cycle was fairly typical as well, a tad longer than usual. Then, the third cycle we got lucky and concieved again–I’m now 6weeks 4days.
The most important thing is to listen to your body–including your mind. If you don’t feel ready, you aren’t ready. Let yourself heal. Just be gentle with yourself.

ColoradoGirl : Oh, you’re so sweet – thank you. They released me from the molar protocol two days after I turned 39 (sigh) with a diagnosis of diminised ovarian reserve and warnings not to get my hopes up. A month later, I was pregnant again.
I just read through the February 2018 board – best of luck to you too! I’m so glad you get to have the whole ectopic saga finally end and the more routine stuff begin in it’s place.
I can’t quite bring myself to join that board yet – even though I’ve seen a heartbeat on three consecutive scans. I just keep remembering that we saw a strong heartbeat last time too, and see how that worked out. I agree with Melissa Rauch that if there was a way to avoid telling anyone ever, I think I’d find it. I just can’t bear to get my hopes up yet.

ColoradoGirl : Hi Bee! I was checking the board/this thread and was so happy to see you post here! Congratulations! The FWWers wondered how you were doing! Wishing you a happy and healthy pregnancy.

professorplum : What a journey for you. I’ll be thinking positive thoughts for you. I know it’s hard to get your hopes up or even enjoy things right now. Miscarriage and loss really steal joy when things do work out. I remember thinking that I’ve never have that over-the-moon, innocent joy ever again. I felt like I was just waiting for it all to be taken away. I hope things go well for you!!
livster : Thanks!! I disappeared off WB for like 4 months because it was just too much. Congrats to you too!
