Hi! My name is Heidi and last week I had a d&c after learning that I had a blighted ovum. We had several u/s and though I was hopeful we would see something there, there was nothing, just an empty sack. I am physically recovering pretty easily, but mentally Im sometimes a mess...I hold it together during the day, but at night when I'm trying to sleep and have time to think I get terribly sad...in a way I still can hardly believe this happened to me. I have had 2 mostly uneventful pregnancies (my boys are 4 and 2) and thought this time would be the same. Anyway, my doctor recommended waiting 2 cycles...do I really need to wait that long? I have a followup with the doctor next week and part of me wants to just start trying to get pregnant right after that (I think she said they are going to test my hormones and make sure everything is back to normal?). Another part of me is afraid to get pregnant again because I don't know if I could deal with another pregnancy failure so soon. But I feel like I want to hurry up and get pregnant again so I know I can have another successful pregnancy...I'm not sure if that makes sense.
How do you know when you're ready to try again?
