Hi. I'm new to this message board. I am 42 with an almost 12 year old boy who has autism. I had an IUD for almost 5 years because we wanted to concentrate on helping our little boy through his tough journey. We decided January of this year to TTC. I had the IUD taken out in February and my period was a little eratic for a couple of months. We decided in July to use the Ovulation kits and was excited to find out mid july that I was pregnant. Went for my 6 week appointment and we saw the heartbeat. Last week which was our 8 week checkup as much as my doctor tired there was no HB. We were devastated. So had to have a d&c. Hubby wants to keep trying and so do I. we were thrilled to get pregnant and hoping if it happens again it will survive.
but I have a couple of questions. - how long until after the d&c did you get your period? has anyone used those frist response fertility kits to check your fertility quality? We used the OPK and has success so we are going to use them again. But I'm really just wondering do you ever really recover from a MC? I'm taking a month off from my job to get my head together. I guess we are just praying and hoping that it happens again quick and survives.
thanks for letting me vent and listening.
