    Good luck, Tiffany! I hope your body manages to O soon.

    yeah, tests are getting darker, but that happened last time (until 16dpo) and it still ended in a m/c by 5 weeks. so... it's not providing much reassurance.

    Default loss ment.

    Hi, I'm Maddie.
    On January 7th I gave birth to my stillborn at 20 weeks, Kamdyn. His heart stopped due to a heart defect on Jan 6th and I was induced.

    Today I had my postpartum appointment.
    Dr. said I'm all healed and that he recommends waiting 2 a/fs before trying again but if i were to get pregnant sooner he's pretty sure it would be fine.

    We aren't using an B/C. Aside from the fact that we will try using condoms and we bought some spermicide. We are going to try to wait but not with full effort I'm sure.

    I haven't had a period since I lost him but I did feel like I Oed last week but maybe not. I took a pregnancy test this morning because we hadn't been using protection. It was a negative but I bought the store brand... (I hate those) so.. I will just keep waiting. Who knows when it'll come though... after having a stillborn.

    Maddie I'm heartbroken to hear your story. I'm so sorry for the loss of Kamdyn though I know those words provide little comfort. I have never had a stillbirth but have had 3 early losses (the last one I'm just now recovering from) and another at 14 wks back in April. I was induced then and gave birth to my sweet tiny little boy Noah. We think it was due to chorioamnionitis which is a fancy word for infection of the uterus, fluid, or placenta. I am doing better now, time does heal, but I wil never be the same. I will never forget seeing his still but perfectly formed tiny little body and will always miss him dearly. I mourned him for quite some time and was already in therapy (for my anciety disorder) and she assured me that was fine and Iwas entitled to be as sad as i wanted to be and also assured me it was fine when I felt that I didn't need to mourn so much anymore either. I waited a month to ttc as per drs orders. I will be thinking of you during your recovery from his loss and when you ttc again.

    Congrats! I hate that losses take away the fun and excitement of early pregnancy. Hope the time goes quickly and smoothly and you are able to enjoy most of it!

    So sorry for your loss Maddie. I lost my daughter at 33 weeks, and was told we could try again right away. Hope you are ready emotionally and physically soon.

    I can echo Tiffany, after something like that nothing is ever the same, and the mourning never goes away - if you ever need an ear of someone who's been there - I'm just a PM away

    You know... I feel alright emotionally. It still hurts a lot sometimes.. but I think I handle things really well. I had a bit of preparation though. on the Friday before i lost him I went in for the "big" ultrasound.. you know the one to find out the gender. That's when they saw that he had hydrops and a heart defect. And they told us we might lose him. I think that has really helped with being able to handle it. I am really anxious to try again. I figure I should let my body and mind rest a little.. actually other people think that including my DH so I will try to wait a bit. But if we don't that'd be ok with me.

    Audrey, I'm sorry for your loss. I can't imagine loosing a baby at 33 weeks. It would be even more heart wrenching.

    Really I'm sorry for all of your/our losses. It is a terrible thing to lose a child. I think one of the hardest days was picking up the heart where his ashes are. Also.. I had to put all the baby stuff I got back from my sister (I gave her a lot of stuff after I had my first child) away in the closest (two days ago). That was a really rough day. But getting the good news from my doctor really helped me. I actually feel excited about something.

    Ugh I'm still spotting! It's most brown old blood mixed with cm. Its like cd 24 and cd 1 was the beg. of the m/c. I looked back at the charts for my previous 2 losses I was charting with and I had stopped spotting by now. I think I'm gonna have an annovulatory cycle bc of it my OPKs went from almost + to really light. Guess my body's just not ready yet. My main worry is that I won't know when it's turned to a period. I have to call on cd1 latest cd2 for the clomid. My first period after my last loss was light so I'm worried I might not notice the difference and mudd my chance for clomid. Errrgh why can't any of this be easy??

    Still here, sort of. I'm out for Oct. going to talk to DH about whether we try for November but after that we're definitely done. Once we hit 2014 due dates I'm looking at 7 and 5 years for the age gaps which is just too big for me . I'm not holding out hope thaf November will be lucky for us and I'm heartbroken that this is it for us.
