Intro 2nd m/c

Hi everyone,


After reading through your board all night, I have decided to introduce myself to find support for my DH and my decision to TTC again straight after m/c.


This is very early days for us, I am in the midst of my second m/c now.


In December 2008 I experienced my first m/c at 6w4d. It was a blighted ovum. DH and I started TTC straight after this (we did not want to wait for one cycle). We conceived our son in January. My pg was healthy and my DS is a perfect 9mo old baby.


This 2010 pg was a surprise, but we were thrilled. It has been an emotional rollercoaster as I have been spotting for 2 weeks and the baby was measuring small for dates on u/s and with a very slow HB. I saw the HB for the last time on u/s yesterday but it was only 70bpm. My cervix was open and my bhcg is declining.


I'm looking forward to hanging out here on my journey to TTC baby no. 2. Thank you.

Welcome, but I'm sorry you're here. That must have been horrible to see your little one struggle. So sorry.


The ladies here are very nice and supportive. I don't think there's anything wrong with trying again. My OB told me before the D&C last week that some women try again immediately and its ok. Me and my DH will try right away, but b/c of our infertility we have to wait until October's cycle - my RE has a 3 mo. policy. Anyway, support is here. I worried that it was "disrespectful" to my baby to try again so soon. But I know in my heart its the right thing to do. We have wanted this so long. Nothing will make me forget my baby in heaven, so it isn't taking away from her.

I am so very sorry for your loss. It is a sad and emotional time so I am glad you joined this board. It has really helped me in coming to terms with things. I am usually the type to keep my feelings in and I personally find it easier to use the boards then talk to people IRL sometimes. My husband is great but sometimes I spare him my feelings because this is hard on him too. I hope you can heal and have a healthy baby soon!

Sorry for your loss.

Its a hard road but being here helps a lot as well as time.
After first m/c we did not wait to try again but it still took 6m.
After my 2nd loss we waited 1 cycle & are now on 2nd cycle of trying since our break.

Good luck.

Thank you, ladies, for your kind words of welcome. I feel I'm in the right place on this board. Already, reading your replies, I have felt a little better.


We had not told anyone except our parents we were expecting. We were going to tell everyone at 12 weeks, which seemed so close...


It is wonderful to have this board to come to, as I don't want to burden anyone IRL, especially as no-one knew we were pg.


Thank you, thank you, thank you!


I truly hope you all have success in TTC. You are wonderful people and your kindness is just what every baby in the world needs. Your future babies are so lucky!

I just wanted to welcome you here and let you know how sorry I am for the loss you're going through. My last 2 losses, my babies were small for dates too and lost their HB's....it was devastating

I'm so sorry to see you here :( You've come to the right place, though, ttc or not. The women here are amazing support and all understand exactly what you're going through.

I hope your body heals well and you get a speedy BFP with a sticky bean very soon. Take care of yourself.
