@mwitter – have you tested!?!?
I have crazy montgomery tubercles all over my nipples (sorry if TMI) I have never had anything like this before and I’m hoping since it’s a visible sign and not just something that I am searching for that it might be a really good validation. I am confident though more than ever so if I get a bfn tomorrow I’m not going to lose hope. I am feeling better mentally about the whole thing either way.
I’ve lurked on here since my wedding last summer, but haven’t logged in to post until now. I had a miscarriage in July at 10 weeks. We had been trying for about 4 months. It was a pretty horrible experience, made even worse by incompetent medical people at the clinic I went to. My new doctor’s (Love Her!) best guess was a blighted ovum, I bled for about 10 days and was done. We had only told a few family members I was pregnant, so getting back to reality was hard, seeing everybody else go about their normal life and knowing they didn’t have a clue what I was going through.
I would have started trying again immediately, but still haven’t gotten my period 8 weeks later! (the doctor’s says not to be concerned for a few more weeks) I’m such a planner, and I hate just waiting around for everything to get back to normal. I am still hopeful that this was a one time thing, but I know the (hopefully soon) next time around I’ll be scared to death of going through it again.
It is very nice to know that there are others (unfortunately) going through the same thing, and every time someone gets a BFP it makes me a little more hopeful 🙂
is it just me or does anyone else feel like since their mc it’s so much more difficult to get pg and has the thought ever crossed your mind that something down there got messed up (not sure if this is possible)….I’m sad even just thinking about this but I don’t understand why it was so easy the first time around.
I try not to think about it, but I can’t help worrying! I’m regular, ovulating, and we are timing it right but it’s not happening!!!!
oh thank god I thought I was going crazy….I just don’t get it, before TTC it seemed like it was so easy to get pg, I got pg with my DD on the pill so I thought for sure this would be a piece of cake will no bc involved. It is so frustrating, I also am a 28 day AFer according to OPK’s I am Oing when I should and I am timing everything right and still nothing, I am about 9DPO and I feel exactly the way I did last month and I’m trying not to stress but I am losing hope fast. I hope we all get some good news soon!
I was just going through and reading everyone’s stories. Miscarriage is so much more common that people think. Which SUCKS!
However, I just wanted to mention something. I’m not sure if this will offer anyone any comfort but I wanted to mention it in case it does. A few people mentioned that they went in at a certain time and their baby had died 2 or 3 weeks earlier. I think that some people feel that their body failed them beaues they didn’t know the baby had died. It doesn’t always work like that. For me, I went in at 7 weeks and the baby was small. I had several appointments over the next few weeks, measuring the baby. The baby died around 10 weeks, and was only measuring about 7. But the baby did not die 3 weeks earlier. it had only died a day or two before my appointment. It was measuring small along, and just growing slower than it should. (So between appointments, it would only grow 3 days in size, over the course of 7 or 8 days.)
Again, I don’t know if this offers anyone comfort, but there is a very strong chance that the baby MEASURED 2 or 3 weeks smaller, but did not actually die 2 or 3 weeks earlier. It might have just been growing small all along.
My husband just send me this article. I thought it was really sweet of him and that you ladies might want to read it.
I won’t even slightly compare a chemical pregnancy to a miscarriage, but I read through your whole thread today and want to give all of us a little bit more hope.
@MrsGreenGrass: Thank you so much for sharing this article it really helps to hear that we can hopefully go on to have healthy babies after a horible experience….and I am also so sorry to hear your news.
Just wanted to check in and let you all know I’m thinking of you!
I read so many stories of women conceiving right away after a miscarriage and thought it would be the same for me. Though it didn’t take THAT long for us, it seemed like forever. I had to wait a full cycle after the m/c to try again and then got pregnant on cycle 3 TTC again (but, it was cycle 4 post-m/c). We did everything right during the first 2 cycles, but nada. I had some really blue days during those months and was convinced something was wrong with me. I think it’s a completely natural feeling (partially b/c it’s like we want an explanation for why something went wrong the first time).
Keep on truckin and try to stay positive!!!
