Scared and Hopeful! First month TTC after m/c

Postby CarlyRose3 » Mon Nov 04, 2013 9:20 pm

So this is my first month TTC after our m/c in September. We got out we were pregnant July 23rd then we found out at my eight week ultrasound I was only measuring five weeks and there was only an empty sac visible. A week later it was confirmed I would m/c. That occured September 7th and ended on the 20th. Shockingly Sept. 29th I became extremely sick and required six days of constant IV antibiotics for an unknown infection. I guess everything happens for a reason because the IV antibiotics were so strong that had I been pregnant still, there's a chance it would've ended the pregnancy anyways which would've been even more horrying to me because I would've been 15 weeks. Anyways, I got better (thank God) and we got married Oct.12. On our way back from our honeymoon I actually got my period. Which was so shocking because we the past year and a half I've been extremely irregular to the point where I take progesterone for a week to induce a period then take Letrozole 2.5mg days 3-7 to help with ovulation. Today was day 14 of my cycle so hopefully I ovulated today. DH has been working outta town Monday-Friday and having to stay overnight so obviously this weekend we were baby dancing like crazy lol I'm just really really really scared, nervous, excited, hopeful and probably a million other emotions about the next two weeks.

Wow...that is quite a story CarlyRose. I'm sorry for your loss. I can't really help with your particular situation because I haven't had a m/c before, but I can be a TTC buddy! :)

You said hopefully you ovulated...are you checking your fertility signs at all?

I see you posted this last week. Which means your in your first TWW after m/c. Its perfectly normal to feel scared and nervous. I was all over the place on my first cyle TTC after my m/c. I started doubting if this is what I wanted, if I was willing to suffer another m/c. Just crazy stuff. When I got my bfp from my first cycle I was so scared and not really happy. I know sounds nuts. I was so scared of loosing the baby and going through all the pain again. Here I am at almost 11wks praying everyday this one chooses to stay with us. I hope this cycle is your cycle!

Hi CarlyRose!
I am in the same situation as you right now. I was supposed to be 9 weeks tomorrow, but when I had an ultrasound done Thursday because I started spotting Tuesday I discovered, to my horror, that my sac was empty.
Emotionally DH and I have started the motions, but physically my body still thinks its pregnant.
I feel sad, and mad all at the same time. I'm sad because there never was a baby and mad because now I have to go through the miscarriage and TWW AGAIN. *sigh

I have my FX for you. GL
