New here... saying hello!

Hi ladies!

I'm new to the iVillage world. I had been over at another message board and never really got into it. I do find myself missing out on the ability to vent about this TTCAL process. A friend said iVillage had been great for her so I decided to come on over and try it out!

My name is maggie. I'm a photographer out of the Washington DC area, but live in Arlington, VA. My husband and I were married in June of this year, went on our honeymoon and came home to two pink lines. yay! we were expecting! so shocking, we wondered if we were ready, but we were. at the 8 week appointment, we didn't see a heartbeat. we were very very devastated. tried cytotec to pass it, and that didn't really work so I had a D&C on 8/9. I'm on my second cycle since then and we're hoping to get back on the boat soon!

Anyway, I've just signed myself into this account and I'm going to start reading through the boards to get a feel for this place. Hope you all are having a great day!

best!

Hi Maggie -

I'm so sorry for your loss and so sorry you've had to join us here on TTCAM, but am glad you are here. Like so many gals have already said, this is just such a wonderful place to come and vent, cry, be frustrated, sad, laugh and have people who can relate to what you are going through. I am looking forward to getting to know you and hope your stay here is short.

Hugs ~

Ann

I just wanted to say that I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how hard it can be to find people to talk to about what's going on but you've come to a great group of women! Welcome!

Hi, Maggie.

I glad you joined our group. Welcome. I think this group is amazing. I'm sorry for your loss. ((HUGS)) to you. It stinks why we're here but we're in good company.

Congrats on your marriage! Did you change your name and if so does it still feel strange to use it? It took me a while to get used to signing my new last name.

Please feel free to ask if you have any questions. I think most would agree that there is no TMI here.

Hope your day is wonderful!

Maggie, welcome here. Im glad you've found this board. I am so, so sorry that your honeymoon pregnancy ended in such a devastating loss. That must have been a huge blow for both you and your husband, especially so soon after your wedding.I know it can be difficult (especially emotionally!) to begin to TTC again, but you sound excited to try again soon. I hope it doesnt take too long for you to get another BFP. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please ask!

PS: I am slightly jealous of your photography job. I love taking pictures, and Ive always thought that would be such a neat way to make a living.

Hi Maggie!

I am glad you found this board because it has been super helpful to me to talk with other women who are going through this. Congrats on your wedding in June and I'm sorry you had such tragedy shortly after. I hope you get your sticky BFP soon.

Hi, Maggie :)

I had tried a few msg boards before I found iVillage and I can't explain it but I just didn't feel at home there.

These girls are like my family and I know they will be that for you too.

I am SO sorry for your losses and believe me when I say I know what a process TTC can be.

Welcome!
