New here!

Hi ladies! I've been lurking for a few days and finally feel ready to post.

I got preggo in December and miscarried on 01/05 at about 6 weeks spontaneously. It was definitely not expected as I had a very easy time getting preggo last time and an uncomplicated pregnancy (minus the hyperemesis, but that's what Zofran is for!) and have an awesome 2 1/2 year old. We were told we could try right away if we kept track of our ovulation (for dating purposes) and we did. I ovulated on 2/21 and then sadly miscarried after seeing the heartbeat at 8 weeks on 3/4. I was given cytotec and had a horrible time with it. I am still bleeding and am obviously going to wait a few cycles, but I wanted to start joining in here to keep my spirits up that it's not all over for us.

This is my husband and I's first time TTC, my daughter was from a previous relationship and he also has a 4 y/o daughter from a previous relationship. I am 26, healthy, and live a pretty awesome life minus stress from custody battles, so I am pretty baffled. We are trying to keep our hopes up but it's really hard going through the early hyperemesis each time and being so sick only to lose the baby. I wish the beginning of my pregnancies were easy! We will probably wait a cycle or two (I am tryign to lose a few pounds to see if that ups my chances) but we really don't want to wait so long that I start to lose the desire to add to our family (is that even possible? I'm just scared I think)

Anyway, I look forward to getting to know all of you and am wishing everyone lots of luck and sticky vibes!

Hi, Nikki :) I'm so sorry about your loss. We definitely all know how you're feeling here and I really hope you get that sticky BFP out of the gate. But in the case that you have to stay a while, you couldn't be in better company. When it seems like no one else understands, everyone here does. ((hugs))

Hi Nikki - First of all, you crunchy mama, I have to comment that it's cool to see someone describe their life as "awesome"; it's definitely a rarity to see that! Second of all, welcome here, and very sorry to hear of your two losses. If you and your husband are really passionate about having your own child together, I doubt that you'll lose the desire even if you wait a few cycles before trying. It's a hard desire to rid oneself of . . . especially on the heals of a loss. Welcome again. Look forward to seeing you around.

welcome, I'm sorry for your loss. You've found a wonderful group of very supportive women here.

I don't think waiting will make you lose your desire for another - as others say the heart wants what the heart wants.

Good luck to you, may your stay here be short!
