When my husband and I decided to TTC, I was so looking forward to it and was already dreaming of our future family. When I got may BFP in July of last year, after only 2 cycles of trying, I was ecstatic. I had my first appointment at 10 weeks, and there was no heartbeat. I was beyond devastated. I was admitted to the hospital overnight 10 days later and my miscarriage was induced. Afterwards, I took a week off from work and spent my days crying and moping about. I have lost family members in the past, but I have never felt a loss so acutely and painfully.
At my scan the baby had measured 9 weeks. The week before my scan I had been on holiday in Greece. I wracked my brain for something I could have done that caused this. Of course, there was nothing.
I had a normal period 6 weeks after my MC and we started trying again right away. I was still feeling extremely fragile emotionally, but the only thing that would fix that would be to become pregnant again as soon as possible. I saw pregnant bellies everywhere and everyday I would think about where I would have been in my pregnancy.
Yesterday I got the greatest gift I could have ever asked for. This time I wasn’t quite so excited. I guess I would call it cautious optimism. I just wanted to share my story and offer support to all those going thorough a difficult time.

Thank you for sharing. I had an early miscarriage two days ago at 5 weeks. I think that my next BFP will be tainted by my current experience…which makes me sad. Instead of jumping for joy, I’ll be anxious, worried and afraid. Please keep us posted on your journey, success stories have been my lifeline these past few days.

Congrats on the BFP and thanks for sharing your story. I’m TTC right now after two miscarriages at 7 and 12 weeks. I understand how hard it would be to get excited about a new pregnancy. Fortunately the stats are in your favour that this will be a healthy pregnancy! 🙂
