Hi all. I know it's early for me, but I this is something I feel is helping me take control of my emotions - I have something to look forward to, I'm ready to try for another baby.
I'm new but figured maybe I could join anyway. I have recently (3/26/10) just lost my angel Landon at 35 weeks due to severe preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome. My husband and I were eager to start trying again, and my doc had said to wait 2 cycles, but I got the doc to agree to waiting one cycle though. I've read that there is no harm in resuming sexual activity either 6 weeks after delivery, or after bleeding has stopped. I've been lucky (as my doc says) as my bleeding has stopped about 5-6 days ago. And as such, my hubby and I have uh resumed sexual activity. We have decided not to use protection, because we don't want to prevent a pregnancy. With my first pregnancy loss, my period didn't come back on its own and I wasn't ovulating when it did, but I'm praying for normal periods this time. My history has been back and forth - sometimes I'll have normal periods for months or years, sometimes I'll skip a month, or every other month, sometimes I'll skip a few months - all over the board, and it sucks. I just pray that we are supposed to have a healthy pregnancy and bring home a baby soon.
I know we should wait like the doc says, but we decided together that we just couldn't wait. So as we are now actively ttc after stillbirth, I have started doing bbt's a few days ago, since I don't really have a cd to go with. I'm looking forward to getting to know you ladies, and I'm praying for BFP's for all of us!
