*child mentioned*

Hi everyone. I'm Nicolle :) The day after Christmas in 2010, at 12 weeks pregnant, I started bleeding so I went to the hospital. We found out our little bean had died at 8w5d and I had a missed miscarriage. I was sent home and by the time I got home I was just gushing and getting extremely dizzy so we called the squad and I was taken back to the hospital. I ended up there 3 days and got 4 units of blood and it was just horrible, but I did manage to pass everything naturally and avoid a D&C. With that PG I was due July 10th and on July 9th I got another BFP :) I got my levels checked and put on progesterone and my little miracle was born March 9th of this year. I've just started getting my cycle back PP and I'm taking vitex and we're officially TTC again, I just ordered my first OPKs! I feel a little out of place coming here since I'm not TTC directly after a miscarriage but I don't feel comfortable going anywhere else and I hope you all are okay with me coming here :)

Dana, I hope you get progesterone and it helps you. I have no idea if I need it while TTC, since I got PG twice, but when I got checked at 7w with my DS it was at 7 and she said it should have been double that. I got vitex to help bring AF back post partum but she showed up the day my vitex did lol! Hoping it helps us both :) Thanks Jess :) you help get me through all this! Thank you Christy :)

I just wanted to say welcome to the board.  I actually had read this a while ago on my phone, but I can't post via my phone yet.  Sorry it took me so long.

Welcome!!

I think once you have that traumatic experience...no matter how many children you have after, it still haunts you.

I'm on Vitex too. Let me know if it works for you! My M.D. figures I have low progesterone and referred me to a specialist....that specialist doesn't believe in prescribing progesterone. I'm going back to my M.D. on Nov 30th to beg him to put me on progesterone (it's the ONLY thing that makes sense in all 4 of our miscarriages).

Once again, Welcome to the group.
Dana
