My fiancé and I decided to start trying for children in Oct 2011, and we were surprised to learn we fell pregnant on Christmas day. Unfortunately, I started having cramping and bleeding and was rushed to the hospital on Valentine's day where I naturally miscarried at 9 weeks. I stopped bleeding after 6 days, and an u/s confirmed my womb was empty, while a blood test verified my hcg levels were dropping. My doctor suggested we wait one cycle before ttc, but she told me if I were to get pregnant right away it would be fine. I continued to take my prenatal vitamins, and though we weren't actively ttc, we weren't preventing, and what do you know, af never arrived and my body was giving me all the prior symptoms of pregnancy..
O day: high cervix, o pains, dtd used preseed
1 dpo: No symptoms, dtd
2 dpo: No symptoms
3 dpo: headache
4 dpo: headache
5 dpo: pulled muscle feeling in uterus (implantation?)
6 dpo: gassy, bloated, sore in the morning
7-10 dpo: gassy, bloated, swollen and heavy breasts, irritable (my poor dh!)
11-13 dpo: gassy, bloated, sore, enlarged breasts (painful) aversion to foods, headache, frequent urination. Got a frer test on 13 dpo poas@ 5pm, BFN :(
14-16 dpo: same as above, but super emotional, (crying over text messages and tv commercials lol)
17 dpo: poas with a frer with fmu and BFP!!
I am very nervous about this pregnancy, but am also excited as well. My doctor said that there should be no problems with my being immediately pregnant again (because I didn't have a d&c) and I have an appointment next week to get bloodwork done.
Miscarriages are hard, one of the hardest things I've ever gone through both physically and emotionally, but there is hope. I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. :)
