Keep it up!!! I am rootin’ for all you Bees!
Keep it up!!! I am rootin’ for all you Bees!
I’m happy I found this thread! I’ve had two miscarriges… one just last month. We decided to go ahead and try again based on what the doctor said. So we are currently 5DPO and I’m trying not to over think it, but it’s so hard! We’re hoping. No signs of anything yet except the same dizzy spells I had last time. That just started today though so might not mean anything! We shall see 🙂 Keeping my FX for all you ladies and so happy to hear the positive stories!!!
Glad to see this thread has been so inactive lately! Congrats to all the recent BFP’s and FX for all you ladies still on your journey!
I’m 9w4d today and still holding strong. There’s hope for all of us!
Just joining here now and really shocked at how many bees I recognise!!! I’m so delighted that so many of you have your BFPs and I reckon this thread will be very quiet. My biggest is spending ages getting preg again. I suppose a positive from this, is, I know I can get pregnant. But it’s hard to see this as a plus right now!
@phoebephoebo: Sorry for your loss. I’ve had two and I’m pregnant again, due in June! It felt like a long time to get pregnant again, but when I think back on it, it was only 5 months total between getting my first BFP and my third BFP. In the scheme of things, that’s not such a long delay, although it was hard to accept the universe messing with MY timeline while I was going through it. You are right, many of us on this board have gone on to get pregnant again. There is lots of hope for you!
@mysterybee123: Thanks! I can imagine how stressful that is. My big fear is that it will take a long time to get another BFP. The first 12 weeks are so stressful but you’re neaEly there. You should join the June board when you’re ready. They’re a great bunch of ladies 🙂
Fx for you x
@bouncybee: Thank you 🙂 so far so good, I’m 13 weeks now and I still worry but less. I’ve just accepted that what is going to happen is going to happen and I have no control over it. I was accepting of my first pregnancy not going well – first try, just got my mirena out, we’d been on a big trip and I got sick so I thought ok well it was just the first time. Then with the second one I was paranoid – didn’t do any physical activity, was super careful, ate healthy, etc. Then it didn’t go well and I thought the universe was teasing me and it was so unfair. With this third time I have been cautious but not overly so, because even though I did everything perfectly last time I still miscarried. I used progesterone every night in this pregnancy and that felt me feel like I was doing something that might help, might not. It was a learning process for me.
We are hesitant to announce just in case things don’t go well so just immediate family knows. Being and feeling pregnant has definitely helped me to be happy again and have something to look forward to. Seeing the ultrasound and hearing the heartbeat made it “real for me” – until then I was anxious. I am still sad sometimes but I hope I have my rainbow baby.
How far along are you? How are you feeling? I hope this pregnancy is going well for you, just take it easy, spoil yourself with bubble baths and long sleeps and yummy food (if there’s anything you find yummy). All you can do is one day at a time! I know its hard.
@bella128: Thank you! It really helps to see so many are doing so well after their MCs. It gives me hope.
Ive a question for anyone who may know this. I decided to start using opks to see if I ovulate this month (after D&C). So based on D&C date I should be CD 11. I got a blariNg positive on an opk and got very excited until Irealised that it’s probably still the pregnancy hormones. I thought theyd be gone by now. I have NO preg symptoms anymore. Could someone set me straight?!
Also, I asked a friend and she said she was advised to try to get preg right away as she was more fertile. I’m freaking out as I was advised to wait 1-2 cycles. It took a while last time and I don’t wany to reduce my chances! But I don’t want to risk another MC!!
@bella128: I am so glad you are well =] I know how you feel about taking things easy etc, this time around i havent done anything differently except i told my sister who is also my boss just so that i wouldnt have to lift any heavy stock at work. I am really anxious that this pregnancy wont be viable so i really want a scan but i had a horrible doctors appointment (theres a post about it from friday) and i dont think im going to get an early scan but fingers crossed. Im 6 weeks 4 days so far so im 2 weeks further than last time which is great, i was planning to announce at xmas if i get my early scan so i can get a grandparents xmas card and have the pic inside but otherwise we wont be telling anybody at all until after my dating scan.
@phoebephoebo: I dont know about the hormones and opk’s maybe do a pregnancy test to check? I was advised to do a pregnancy test after 2 weeks anyway because if there are any products remaining it can cause infection. 11 days after D&C sounds like it could be left over hormones though.
As for waiting in between i have always been told that if you had a natural miscarriage it is better to get pregnant immediately but after a D&C it is better to wait one cycle as you need longer to heal. Deffo keep track of your cycle if that is what you would normally do and then start trying next month if that is what you and your DH want to do. Im sure it wouldnt cause a m/c again if you did get pregnant immediately, it isnt unheard of at all but for peace of mind it might be better to wait xx
@bouncybee: Thanks for replying! My doc said that there’s no conclusive evidence but he said its best to wait for one to allow for healing! Doing a pregnancy test is a good idea. I might try that in a few days if I keep getting glaring positives. I really thought hormones would be gone by now!!
How are you getting on? I hope you’ve recovered after that awful incident with the doc. I hope you found somewhere to do an early scan.
@phoebephoebo: I had a D&C last March and was advised to wait 1-2 cycles. I simply waited for my period to return (it actually did about 2 weeks after the D&C) and then I started TTC right away. They do say you are more fertile and I believe it to be true, I got my BFP on May 2nd (less than 2 months after the D&C). I’ll keep everything crossed that you get a quick BFP. Been thinking of you! 🙂
@Lyndzo: Ah, thanks! Can’t believe you got your BFP so quickly! Thanks for letting me know how it went for you. I’m nervous about TTC anyway so it’s good to wait for this cycle but will definitely want to get going in the new year!!
Not long for you now… I’d say you’re getting excited!
