New here and ttc again

Hi, my name is Vanessa and I had a m/c and D&C on March 3rd. Af returned 5 weeks later and I am currently on CD 11, hoping to O soon. I had some spotting yesterday (very watery and pinkish) so I don't know what that means, but I'm remaining hopeful. I have 5 DC already (3 bio and 2 FT step). We weren't planning on #6 but I became pg in Dec. when my youngest was 7 months old. Since losing the baby, we have decided there is room for another and we are eager to conceive again. Of course, I am nervous that either I won't be able to conceive as easily as in the past (1st month with all 4 other pg's) or at all, or that I'll have another m/c. Fortunately, these fear won't stop me from ttc again. Glad to be here!

Hi Vanessa,

I remember you from the miscarriage board and just wanted to say hi and give you ((((hugs)))). Once you have a m/c, I don't think the fear of having another one ever goes away. I've had 2, and this last one has given me great resolve. I am just as sad and devastated as I was with the first, but I somehow feel stronger this time. I'm not done trying yet, I'm not ready to give up. I also draw strength from this board, and I hope you do, too.

Take care

Mimi
