    Default 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 Looking forward to getting to know you all.

    Sandy

    I'm sorry for your losses. Hope your stay here is short and sweet.

    PS: I understand the "analyzing" thing all too well. I do the same thing so you're not alone

    Hi Sandy

    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.

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

    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.
