I feel that......

When I told you that mine wasn't worse, I lied. I am definitely paying for that comment today. Cramps and backache are still there, and I am definitely bleeding heavier. I work at a school, and lets just say as I was walking down the loooong hallway to the bathroom I already knew I was in trouble....

I hope AF hits the road for both of us soon! As much as I was ready to see her so we can move on, I'm already ready for the b*tch to hit the road!!!

I would LOVE a Christmas BFP, but I'm not sure. Doc told us to wait two cycles before TTC again, so I'm not sure what our plan is yet..... :(

Hope you're feeling better today.

Thanks. It's not horrible, I don't want to call the doctor yet, I think I'll wait it out a few days. I know I should post this stuff on the TTCAMC board, I just can't place myself there. I hate to think that I'm a in that category. I'm in denial, I guess. Hopefully AF ends in a few days and I get get on with life.

Brew, I guess we're in the same spot. If we get knocked up this cycle, it'll be a fun surprise for DH for Christmas!

If you're concerned you could definitely call your doc. However, I have read a lot of info that says your first period after m/c can be very bad. Heavy bleeding/clots/cramping, etc. If I remember correctly there might be a post about it on the TTCAM board?? If not it would certainly be a good place to ask.

I am on CD1 today post m/c. I was expecting it to be really bad, but so far it's not any worse than it normally is for me (although a "normal" AF for me consists of pretty bad cramps and a backache). However, I had a d&c so maybe it won't be worse than normal.

I hope AF starts taking it easy on you!

I would say to call your doctor if you are bleeding heavily or are passing really large clots. It could be that your body is still trying to deal with the hormones, and could just be a heavy period. How has it been today?
