Hi! I miscarried my twins on New Years Day. Really sh*tty way to start the New Years I know! They never grew past 5 weeks and 5 days, but my body did not recognize and miscarry until 9 weeks. I knew pretty early on that we had lost them, but hoped against hope that we were wrong. I've been haunting these boards on and off since and finally figured what the heck, I might as well be a part. If nothing else, it's comforting having people around who understand. Im actually 2 days late after having 29, 28 and 28 cycles, so pretty much it's agonizing not knowing what it means. So far negative HPT which just adds to the confusion. It's funny bc you never realized how much misery a period can bring until when you have one and you realize all the hopes it's destroying. Ultimately tho - I know God's got a plan for my family. I may not agree with it, I may not understand it, but I'm trying to accept it. Thanks for letting me share.

Hi Shannon. I'm so sorry for your loss. It's never an easy thing, and it's very helpful to have people who've been through the same thing. I'm glad you found our board- it's full of empathetic, supportive women.

It can take a while for your body to get back into a real pattern after m/c, so it's not unusual to be a couple of days "late" and still be getting BFN's. There are a couple of ways it could be- could be your body is still trying to regulate itself and you are pregnant

Hi Shannon! I'm glad you de-lurked and introduced yourself! It's definitely helpful to have supportive people who know what you're going through and have been through. I'm sorry for your loss. I hope that your negative HPT turns into a positive one really soon!
