TTCing after Chemical Pregnancy

First off, I've heard wonderful news about this group, and so decided I'd come and share my quick, little story.

A month ago AF was late, 2 days, and I had a couple symptoms of pregnancy (dizziness, headaches, closed cervix, dry CM) and so I decided to test the day AF was due. I got a very faint line, so faint I kept pulling it back out of the wrapper it came in and examining it. Well, since it wasn't FMU I decided I'd wait another day or so and then test again, really trying to blow off the faint line.

2 more days went by and I decided to test. I'd been checking my cervix and had begun to experience that crazy dizziness I'd had just 2 years prior when I was pregnant with my daughter, I knew in my heart of hearts I was preggo. Now, we weren't trying and I was completely shocked, but still I knew. I took the 2nd test only to get a negative and AF showing up later that day. I was shocked again.

I blew it off and felt relieved. However, a month later, I still think about that little line. I've come to understand it must have been a chemical pregnancy and there's nothing more that can be said. And yet, the words that flew out of my mouth yesterday said a great deal, "I'm ready for another baby!" I think that little line helped me to realize that I am ready for #4. :)

Since my "pregnancy" was so early I feel a bit odd sharing it on the other TTC board, I guess it's cause I'm not even sure how I feel about it, about recognizing it and all, and I thought you ladies here would understand where I was coming from.

Thanks for reading!

Karen Lynn,

Thanks so much for your words! There is a part of me that's grateful that my body took care of everything since there must have been a problem, however, I am saddened by the idea that something was wrong.

Toni,

I'm sorry that you lost your pregnancy, but if it was the kick in the hiney you needed to jumpstart efforts for #4--- well then, at least it was not lost without a purpose.

Toni,
Welcome to the board. My second loss was a chemical, so I understand how you're feeling. This is a very supportive place & I do hope your stay here is short.

Welcome to the club no one wants to be a member of.

It is a great group though.

2 of my losses were chemical. They are still hard & hurt.

Toni,

Both my losses were chemical so I understand how terrible that feels. A lot of the time people, and I guess even myself sometimes, don't consider
