Intro *Child & loss mention*

I thought I would join and tell you a little about myself.

We will be TTC starting Oct/Nov. I have a 4yr old daughter and an almost 4 month old son. We found out in Aug that I was preg only to learn a week and a half later I was having a miscarriage. Needless to say I am still trying to recover from that. I keep wondering if some how they mixed my labs up even though I know I was bleeding heavily. I have had 3 losses total.The first 2 required me having a d&c. This last one they said my hcg level had dropped so quick and it was an early loss so I didn't have to have one and I think that adds to it being hard for me to accept and keeping me wondering.

I am nervous about ttc as I am positive for one type of the MTHFR gene abnormality and I also have issues with progesterone. I have to be on extra folate, prenatals, aspirin, and progesterone suppositories while preg. My Dr told me there isn't much more I can do besides leading a healthy life style and take those meds. She also said that the general recommendation is to wait a year after birth before ttc which we will obviously be going against. He will be 5 or 6 months depending on my cycle. We will be ttc around the same time span between our 2nd loss and when I became preg with him. I am hoping that helps some how ( I know that sounds a little crazy)

I really want a summer baby again as I had PPD really bad with DD and she was born in the fall/winter and I did not have it with DS so I am thinking being able to get out in the nice weather will help.

So if you made it this far thanks for listening and thanks for not thinking I am too crazy for analyzing evrything so much LOL Smile Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Hi Sandy :wavehello:

I was on the April board briefly too. I also had a surprise pregnancy and then m/c about a week and a half later. I'm sorry yours ended the way it did. Sad

Good luck on your TTC journey. I look forward to getting to know you while we are here. Smile

That basically sounds like what happened to me. I found out I was preg and then by the time I was really excited/over the shock and worry of having another so close I found out I lost it. Life is tough but everything happens for a reason and I am very glad I do have the 2 kids that I have.
