Turtle83:  Thank you. We’ve both had a crummy run of it, haven’t we? I never thought this would be so hard.

Got our genetic screening results. DH is a carrier for 3 weird mutations, but none that would cause MC. They are all recessive and I’m not a carrier, so it’s more of a health heads up for him since carriers can have mild problems from one of them. My D&C is tomorrow afernoon. Bleh.

GrannyPantiesRock:  I’ll be thinking of you tomorrow and hope all goes well with the D&C. Being pregnant and not pregnant at the same time is probably the lonliest thing on earth.

So I’m pretty sure I started the very first “Journey to TTC after Miscarriage” post. I honestly didn’t think I’d find myself back here again but hopefully you guys don’t mind if I rejoin.

Roll Call

Status (MC cycle/rest cycle/TTC cycle): I just started bleeding/miscarrying yesterday. I went to the ER today and my HCG level is 10. The doctor said to just wait it out and we’ll do another blood test in a couple days because it could be normal but he’s cray-cray…lol. There’s no way that’s a normal HCG level for 5 weeks.

MC History: July 2012 – MC at 7.5 weeks, December 2012 – MMC at 12 weeks (baby passed at 7-8 weeks), March 2013 – MC at 5 weeks, October 2014, MC at 5 weeks

Issues (if any): We’ve had lots of tests but the results have all came back normal.

Action Plan for next TTC cycle (ie Baby Aspirin, progesterone, etc): I’m hoping to see an RE soon so have further tests done before we TTC again.

What are your biggest challenges right now? I’m just trying to make sense of why my body is so unpredictable. I had 3 miscarriages and then gave birth to a healthy baby boy that I carried to full term. When I was pregnant with him I took progesterone for the first 12-13 weeks and I thought that was what made the pregnancy stick. This time around I was also taking progesterone and yet I still miscarried. I take some comfort in the fact that I have my son so I know my body has the ability to stay pregnant but why is it so darn unpredictable??!<br />

Current coping strategies/favorite inspirational quotes: I keep reminding myself that if I didn’t have 3 miscarriages at the beginning of my TTC journey, I would have never had my beautiful son. I hope that I don’t have to endure more losses before I have another baby but I know that even if that is the case, in the end it will be worth it. <br />

As_You_Wish:  I’m sorry you’ve found yourself back here. On the plus side, you seem to have a wonderful outlook. I hope you find the answers you’re looking for. You shouldn’t have to be on such an emotional roller coaster on your way to having a baby every single time. And it is such a relief to know you CAN carry a baby to term, and I’m sure you will again. Best of luck to you xx

As_You_Wish:  So sorry for your loss.  I know what you mean about the the body being so unpredictable.  I had a healthy pregnancy and baby boy in Jan 13′ and then two MC this year.  I don’t get it.  Wishing you lots of luck in the future.

As_You_Wish:  I’m sorry that you are finding yourself here again. This may sound weird… but you give me hope. I just had my 2nd MC and everthing seems so hopeless… but if I have to have 10 more MCs to get my rainbow baby, I’ll do it. Your story makes me feel like the odds are actually in my favor, even if the journey to get there sucks.

desertgirl:  Ladies, thank you so much. It’s so comforting to know there are people “out there” thinking of me. The D&C was easy. I had great anesthesia and don’t remember a thing. No cramps now and I don’t even need a pad. I know that a D&C is not a benign procedure… there are risks of bleeding, scarring, future infertility, and anesthesia complications. But I would absolutely do a D&C before the cytotec/misoprostol (pills) again.

I’m a little behind in the group, so I will try to catch up.

Tarsier90:  I’m so sorry for your loss. I am also trying to do the things I couldn’t if I was pregnant.

GrannyPantiesRock:  I am so incredibly sad you are here. This is not how I wanted this to work out for either of us. I was following your posts closely, keeping some hope alive. I hope you are recovering well. I would also choose a D&C if I had to. It just helps heal those wounds I think. I am truly sorry though. Repeat losses are so unfair.

alove31:  I’m sorry for your loss. I hope you have a successful cycle this time around.

As_You_Wish:  Ugh, I am terribly sorry for your losses. I saw your other post about your baby and just getting pregnant. I am so sorry that didn’t work out. I admire your positive attitude about all this though. You are very strong.

 

AFM, I’ve been keeping myself busy. I have started to work on my blog (yay). Totally excited about that, and it has given me something positive to focus on. I’ve also been working on my weight loss and eating healthy. So far I am doing great, so that is a motivator for me. DH and I decided that we would leave our jobs in May and move across the state. It’s scary! But I am looking forward to a fresh start somewhere else. I’ve been in my college town for 6 years in 2015, and I am a little tired of it.

GrannyPantiesRock:  I feel the same way.  I joined in April and my EDD of Nov 20th is fast approaching for my first loss.  : (

Today was my first appointment with a RE. We just went over my history, did an ultrasound and I’m set up for my first set of tests.  Hope I get some answers or at least some better guidance for my next pregnancy.
