Hi everybody. I posted/lurked some here when I first suffered a natural m/c in March, but I stopped after the initial waves of grief subsided.
However, it's been almost 4 months since my m/c began, and AF still hasn't returned. Lately it's felt like every day I go without a period, I lose the baby all over again. I just can't feel officially healed until AF returns, and the waiting for weeks and weeks on end just sucks so much, especially since I thought I would at least be TTC again by now.
So I'm back, seeking support. I feel like some kind of prodigal daughter. I have a dr appointment on July 15, so we'll see what she says. But in the meantime, I just need a little encouragement. This place was so warm and compassionate and welcoming in the spring. I found such comfort here. I'm hoping that that can be true again. And I will try to return the favor as well.
Hi EmmyG. I'm sorry your dealing with this and it's still so fresh in your mind. I remember you from the October board. We lost our babies really close together. I too am still here now and then. Most days are okay, but some are still hard. I'm glad that you came back though. Whenver I'm haivng a bad day, the ladies here listen and make me feel, if not better, at least understood.
I'm glad you're writing in about what's on your mind, and I agree with the pp's about seeing a doctor -- why not?
I remember the long wait. You'll experience some unusual periods after. You're right: it does suck, but eventually things do return to normal. My ob/gyn explained ithat my body had just gone through a real shock, and so it can take quite a while to 'right itself'. But each time it did.
We're here for you, sweetheart. We're going to help you through this too.
Oh! If only I could be that lucky! DH and I are trying not to conceive until we are convinced that my body has returned to normal. Still, I have taken a few HPTs along the way, just in case, always with a negative results. I'm pretty sure that my dr will order some blood tests next week.
Thanks everyone for all of the warm wishes. I feel so blessed to be able to come here and get such great support so immediately!
Hi Emmy. Our losses were kind of close to each others I remember you from earlier in the year as well. We are all here for you. I don't come here all the time, sometimes it's so hard, but am just a pm away if you ever need to talk. Please keep us posted on how your appt on the 15th goes.
