Welcome back, we're glad to see you! I know how difficult all of this is, but I totally understand the need to try again. It's crazy to think we put our hearts on the line over and over when we've had losses, but that end goal is just too sweet to pass up.
I am so sorry for your loss but look forward to having you on the board again.
I am so glad you're back and going to give it another whirl!!!

Hi Carolina,Welcome back, I'm new here, too, but have been TTC for over two years. We went through the MC thing, too, almost 2 years ago. It's hard, but you're right to get right back in the saddle.
After my MC, my OB told me something that made me feel better. First, that, well, it's really good news that you CAN get pregnant. That's already huge.
Second was that, after they did the D&C the analysis determined that though there was a set of cells that implanted in my uterus, it wasn't a baby, and that chromosomally, it would never have developed into an embryo. So, my negative thoughts about this poor little creature losing its life, was really the wrong imagery to have. I don't know if it will help you, but it did me.
Also, i saw what you wrote about the progesterone creams. I was on creams from my hollistic doc for 3-4 months. It worked OK, helped with a couple symptoms of my hormonal imbalance, but was really messy and it stained my clothes. It also gave me pretty bad acne.
I talked to my doc and I started last month on the same dosage, but with a custom compound capsule that I take twice a day orally. For me, it's 1000 times better. Just in case you need additional options. My doc didn't mention the oral option until I asked her about it. It's a lot easier to remember to do, and it's also easier when you are at the office when you are supposed to administer your dose. They say it's not as easily absorbed as the cream, but for me, it's a better option.
Lot's of baby dust for you...
I am soooo happy you are back, Carolina. I am looking forward to the day that you get a sticky BFP. I still think it will happen and I am glad you aren't ready to give up.
GL and welcome back!!!
