New here m/c ment

Hi there, thought I'd introduce myself. I didn't know this board even existed. I went from 1st tri moms right over to TTC after a loss....even though we weren't TTCing.

My name is Heather and after 6 months of trying we got our BFP April 21 07. Had a pretty uneventful 12 m/s...nothing. I was told I was lucky. At our 8 wk appt we saw the baby and the heatbeat on the u/s. Then at our 12 wk, they couldn't hear the heartbeat on the doppler. I had also started spotting brown...with no cramps..they said that was fine. So I had another u/s on 6/22 and the baby measured 8.5 hearbeat. Must have lost the baby shortly after our 8 wk appt. I waited 2 weeks to see if I could miscarry on my own. I did not. I had my first D&C on 7/2. 3 weeks after that I was atill getting positive HPTs. They drew blood and my numbers were 286.....2 days later they were 310. They weren't going up enough. So again, had an u/s....confirmed I was not pregnant and had my 2nd D&C 7/31.

Now we just wait for AF to show. I'm kinda scared to try again because the dr had said that with multiple D&C's with the same pregnancy there could be infertility problems.

I guess we cross that bridge when we get to it.

Thanks for listening.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss honey. I'm glad you came here though. These ladies helped me more than they know throughout my grief.

I hope that AF shows soon and that your body gets back to normal quickly.

I am so sorry for your loss. I too lost my last one just after 8 weeks when we didn't see a heartbeat anymore. I am also sorry that you had to have 2 d&c's. Just thinking about you!
