gr8tful4friendships :  The group I was with for the second and third losses were horrible people. After the 3rd, the “specialist” administered a hysterosalpingogram with no anesthetic. He told me to watch my innards on the monitor and I wouldn’t feel any “discomfort”. After he read the results of the test, he said (this is a direct quote-I remember after decades- “OK, so go ahead and get pregnant. We’ll bomb you with progesterone and do a test after your first 8 weeks and if there’s anything wrong you can abort and try again”. This horrible person represented himself as a high risk specialist.

Hence my eagerness to find another practice. 

I pray for all women who deal with fertility issues. I have always believed that prayer was instrumental in bringing me my two babies.

We suffered a miscarriage in April 2017. My cycle came back normal but I thought for sure we were out as I was out of town until the evening I ovulated – but we ended up pregnant again. 

I’m now 34.5 Weeks, and going over my birth plan – so there is hope Bee! Outside of one scare around 23 Weeks, I’ve had a very normal and very healthy pregnancy. 

Don’t lose hope. FX for your sticky baby soon!

gr8tful4friendships :  I had a miscarriage, and my doctor told me that miscarriages are so common that they don’t recommend any testing until after 3 losses. So it is very common!

gr8tful4friendships :  when trying to conceive our first, i had a blighted ovum. They are a random event. It was heartbreaking because it took 8 cycles to make that pregnancy happen. After another 8 cycles I conceived again and my son is 3.5 now 🙂

gr8tful4friendships :  dusted myself off and tried again 🙂 I never needed fertility meds/treatment. After the 2nd MC, my OB tested my ovarian reserve and it was low, so she referred me to an RE to do IVF with genetic testing to make sure my eggs were ok. But I got pregnant with DS before the first appointment (I joke that she scared my ovaries!). 

I was doing everything I could to maximize my chances – temping, opk’s, all that stuff 🙂
