Hi everyone... new here (pg/mc/ttc ment)

I just found this board, so thought I'd come over and join you.

I am currently suffering a miscarriage that started yesterday. I was 8 wks, 6 days pregnant. I've had issues with this pregnancy since about one week after my BFP, and several recent ultrasounds confirmed that there was no evidence of a fetus in my gestational sac. We do not know when the baby stopped developing. I was scheduled for a D&C on Monday, but since I started to miscarry on my own yesterday, it has been cancelled.

I have one daughter who is almost 2 1/2 yrs old and we have been ttc #2 for a little over a year now. I have had several chemical pregnancies, and now this loss. So I am coming here for support during this tough time.

I briefly saw that there are at least a couple of you here that I know already, and I look forward to getting to know the rest of you.

~Mary

Mary, again, I'm so sorry for what you are going through. I can't imagine the roller coaster of emotions that you've had during this time, but now that you're constantly on my mind. Take care of yourself!!

Hi Mary... so sorry for your loss and I know how long you've been TTC too. Sad

How are you feeling & coping? I posted to the other forum that Motrin was my best friend, kept it on my nightstand. Seemed to do better for the pain. I hope it's not been too bad for you.

I'm coping okay so far, though I have been feeling pretty sad. This morning I didn't feel like I wanted to go anywhere or talk to anyone, but going to worship service really helped. The Lord can give such great comfort in times like this. I even enjoyed having lunch with some friends afterwards. Thankfully they didn't ask about the mc.

As for the pain, I've been using 800mg of Ibuprofen (4 of the 200mg) which is the same as Motrin and it has kept the pain at bay for the most part. Last night in the middle of the night I did have some stabbing pain in my abdomen that hurt pretty bad, but thankfully it didn't last long, and then I had a milder version of it briefly during the day today.

Thanks for asking about me.

I totally understand the sadness and not wanting to talk to anyone or do much. I was already down TTC for so darn long and now I seem to be in this slump. Hard to get out of, ya know. I'm trying though...day by day. That's all we can do... one foot in front of the other I suppose.

Yeah, I know what you mean. When you're ttc for so long and you have so many disappointments, it's so tempting to just give up on it all. I'm in a real slump myself today. I can feel depression knocking at my door. I don't want to do anything or go anywhere. But.... life must go on. One foot in front of the other, clinging to God and to my precious daughter and my husband.

Child ment.

Sending hugs. Do not give up on your dreams.

Five years ago I was in a hospital room holding my BF second son, her other son was three. We had been trying for 5 years with no luck. I rememeber leaving the hospital crying. I got into the car and looked across the street to a clinic where I say full term moms smoking away. We went to a bar at noon and I got sh*tfaced. Little did I know at that exact minute my son was being born in Korea. He was fullterm and 4 lbs 9 oz. We did not know about him until November and he did not come home until April of the following year. My little blessing will be five tomrrow. So, ladies do not give up. Each of you will be blessed.

Mary - I hope that you are doing better.

I thought about attending church Sunday, but it was too soon for me. Maybe next week. I am hoping that time will make me feel better... How are you feeling after a few weeks of recovery (physically AND emotionally)? My thoughts are with you.
