this is all still really fresh, as i'm just dealing with a M/C this week.
Expecting #1 (a boy!) on January 16, 2013
I am sorry for your need of this site but happy that you found it. It is real tough going through a MC and I feel for you. I also lost my first which make things hard (ok, it is never easy...).
Hey there and welcome.
My mc is still very fresh too. I officially passed everything end of June. My bleeding resolved fairly quickly after that and hcg went down pretty quick. I wanted to jump back in quickly bc we had been TTC for 1 1/2 yrs before the mc and being so close to success after so long, was devasting.
If i was anxious to get pregnant before, i dare say i am now desperate!!!
I ovulated approx. 3 weeks after the mc and I am currently waiting to see! Good luck and I am very sorry for your loss. I hope its the only own you have to experience.
First off, I want to say how sorry I am for your loss. I'm glad you found this board- there are a lot of women on here who've been through similar situations and can give you advice and empathy. It's hard for anyone who's never experienced a pregnancy loss to understand how emotionally devastating it can be. The physical aspect isn't any fun, either.
I've had two missed m/c, one at 8 weeks, the other at 9 weeks, but both times the baby had stopped growing at 6w1d. Both times I opted for the D&E because my body was showing no signs of taking care of the situation itself. The surgeries themselves weren't bad- I was knocked out, and the physical recovery was fairly easy. The emotional aspect of going in pregnant (albeit with a deceased baby)
I am so sorry for your loss. You have found a great group of ladies here.
