I used the procedure as CD1, too. I figure getting everything cleaned out is pretty much like AF.
Your temp drop looks lovely, Jessica! GL at your appointment.
So... I think my OPK is fading in. I had weird light, red bleeding last night, but it only lasted an hour or so. And now the OPK is a little darker. I doubt I'll get pregnant, this cycle is just too weird, but we'll still try.

My first cycle after the d&c cycle I spotted every day from the end of my period until I O'd. It was very weird, we decided not to TTC that cycle...which was mostly b/c doc said wait three cycles and DH wasnt comfortable not following orders. But the next cycle was normal so I was able to convince DH to go for it and we got DS2
So if you're starting the fade in you might O by CD20, that's about what my body decided to do this cycle too. I'm so happy to finally be in the 2WW, hope you join me soon.
Hope its ok to join in here. No one in "real life" here that seems to understand. I lost my baby to Heaven Feb 14, of this year. I should have delivered end of August but I didn't. My heart still feels incomplete. I have been unable to become pregnant and keep watching as friends become pregnant so easily with no cares in the world and friends having babies everyday. I am beyond happy for them but its hard to face them. I complained on facebook today, won't do that again. Friends said, do something nice for someone else that will make you feel better. Well, in my real life I do nice things all the time just becauseI like to do nice things for others. That comment didn't help me feel better. Someone else said cry and get over it once you are done crying. No one seems to understand how I feel. I just had a breakdown and could use a hug...... sorry to blubber......
Mom to Gabe 1.01
Right now I'm still waiting for the m/c to be over. It's been over a week and I'm at a point where it's like a light AF. I really just want it to be over, but it looks like any day now. DH is freaked out and doesn't want to TTC anymore...our DS is 7 and really wants to be a big brother and I really do want another little one around the house. We'll see as time goes by.
Mary, you got it hun. ((((huge hugs)))) I'd give you a real life hug if I could.
Wouldn't that be nice if you could just have big cry and then decide to be over it? ~insert eye roll here~. I'm sorry no one IRL gets it. But, You are always welcome here as far as I'm concerned. I hope this isn't the only time you'll pop in, it makes it hard for me to keep up with you when you never post.
Akapufa, I'm sorry it has dragged on for you. I really hope things get more back to normal soon and that your son is able to be a big brother in the near future.
Mary - I'm sorry nobody seems to understand. We'll listen to your complaining whenever you want.
Acalleros - sorry it's dragging out. I hope DH changes his mind. Maybe he just needs some time to recover.
AFM: after almost 2 months I think my body is finally getting things under control. I haven't spotted in over 24 hours and have a positive OPK. I really hope things are normal after this.

Mary, I'm so sorry no one understands. I know how you feel. Having a m/c at 7 wks, even if no heart beat was detected in my case, was like having a death in the family. You have to be able to mourn the loss. Not only the loss of the child but of the hope, joy, planning and all the things you talk about and hope for when you're pg. That takes time. I don't think many people see it that way.
I don't think my DH see's it that way, I'm not sure if it's his way of helping him not deal with the emotions. Not to sound like a total 'B' but I'm sure there are women out there, who may even be mothers, who don't understand the emotional loss of a m/c. Maybe because they have never had one or because they lack the emotional attachment.
My sister-in-law lost her little girl during her third trimester several years ago, they had to do an emergency C and the baby passed two weeks later. She was told she had a 1% percent chance of ever getting pg again. For a long time she was very depressed and sad. The anniversary of the loss would come and she would become very sad. Last year she and my brother started the process to foster a child so they could adopt. They completed the process and had a nursery set up, all they were waiting for was a call saying they had a baby on the way. Well guess what? She got pg shortly after and on Oct 26 she is scheduled for delivery, we and the Drs are very optimistic.
Hang in there, I hope your feel better soon.
Hi ladies, I'm waiting to o but we are not actually ttc at the moment. I'm still waiting to get the go ahead from my doctor. I keep tracking just because I like knowing where I am in my cycle.
Mary, I don't think anyone really understands it unless they have been through a loss. I had a close friend send me a text announcing they were pregnant with a copy of the u/s photo just after my last loss. She then had the nerve to say she was surprised and upset I didn't act more excited about the news. Considering it was an ultrasound from same gestation as my loss as the loss was / is still quite raw, it could have been construed as a bit insensitive. I just think they can't understand though.
People who have never had a loss do not understand and even some that have had a loss don't get it. Everybody grieves and deals with things differently. That's why I like this board. You are bound to meet some one who is cose to feeling how you do. Hang in there.
