Hello all! I am sure my story is pretty similar to everyone here. I am so sorry for all your losses, you just can't comprehend what it is like until you go through it yourself.

My DH and I finally decided to TTC in February, after many years (we have been together for over 8 years, married for 6). Much to our surprise after 14 years of BC, we got PG the first cycle. All was going well until I started bleeding at 10 weeks (in April), ultrasound showed sac but no fetus and my hcg quant was extremely low for the age. I had a D&C at 11 weeks because I had a missed MC. My cycle went right back to normal, betas were negative after 10 days and AF returned at 28 days like clockwork. Dr. wanted to wait for that first AF before we tried again.

So I am here sitting through the TWW at CD 21 just hoping that this will be it. During the first PG, I didn't have any MS at all, just sore BBS for the most part. So I am looking forward to all kinds of MS, at least it will make me feel better about my hcg levels!

Good luck and baby dust to everyone! I hope this is the month/cycle for all.
