I had been spotting for the last two weeks, and after missing my period and having tender breasts, I was getting really excited. My husband and I were on holidays during those two weeks so when we got home last night, I got the pregnancy test ready for my morning pee.
It was POSITIVE! It was a cheap drug store brand though, so I thought, I better get a “real” one and double check. That test also said positive so I burst into tears as I showed my husband. We have been undergoing testing to see if I had PCOS and to rule out that everything was good with the husband. We haven’t heard back from my gyno yet so we weren’t sure what to expect. So this all happened between 6am (first test) and 7:30am (second test!) We immediately started planning how we would tell the family, whether or not we wanted to find out the gender, etc…But…
At 1 this afternoon, we were having lunch at a restaurant when I felt some moisture…there was a lot of bleeding along with a couple small clots. I was thinking it was part of the spotting that had been occuring over the last two weeks so I wiped up and went back to the table.
About 20 minutes later, I went back to the restroom…this time I took a pee, but as soon as I felt the large clot fell out…I just knew.
I asked my husband to take me home, where I burst into tears and said I think I just had a miscarriage. He immediately took me to the urgent care clinic in town, where they did some testing, and confirmed. Tomorrow I go in for an ultrasound, just to be sure.
I think I’m still in shock right now. I don’t know how you can find out you’re pregnant and just 5 measly hours later, you’ve had a miscarriage…It doesn’t seem real.
Thanks for letting me share…The silver lining is that we now know that we are able to get pregnant…that brings me some comfort.

@Ryansgirl: I’ve been there honey. If you need someone to talk to, I’m just a PM away. I know it hurts a lot, but it does get better I promise. Good for you for staying positive. This is a difficult thing to go through, but you’ve got a whole army of women behind you that know exactly what you are feeling. Massive cyber ((hugs))

*hug* I am so sorry – it’s such a difficult thing to get through a miscarriage. One of my best friends had one a couple months into her pregnancy and it was devastating. But she conceived again fairly soon after that and her baby girl was born happy and healthy, so don’t get discouraged. I think I read somewhere that most women’s first pregnancy ends in a miscarriage. Keep your spirits up!

This happened to one of my best friends. They found out that she has a hormonal imbalance so that… yes, they can conceive, but it makes it impossible without outward help to hold a pregnancy full term. I’d get everything checked out, dear. I’m so sorry you had to go through this.

@Ryansgirl: I am so sorry for your loss. This is one of my biggest fears. I’m sure there’s nothing anyone can say to make you feel better, but like you said, at least now you know you have the ability to get pregnant.

Hugs. It seems like a lot of women conceive again immediately after a miscarriage. There is a theory that you are more fertile directly after a loss (no idea why). I hope you get your rainbow baby soon!

Thanks so much for all your support ladies. I haven’t told anyone in “real life” other than my boss and of course my husband knows. It really helps to hear your stories and kind words.
I woke up this morning, hoping it was all a dream, but alas it wasn’t. I am looking forward to trying again though, now that we know it is possible.
Thanks again ((((big hugs!))))
