Figure I'll hang here some too
I figured I'd come hang out back here again for a while since I'm not exactly sure when we'll be TTC again officially. If you don't know my story, I got pregnant in February after 9+ months of trying. We were thrilled and things seemed perfect and healthy. At 9 weeks the baby's heart stopped beating and we were informed that we'd lost it. I had a d&c that week and was hospitalized a few days later for a post-op infection. Since then, I also found out that I have a lot of blood leftover from the procedure and they were considering doing another d&c.
Today I went back to my RE just to make sure things were okay and I didn't have to worry about future fertility issues. I got about the best report I could have gotten I think. A lot of blood is still there but he thinks it's just a big clot that's having trouble coming out which is what my OB thought as well. He's thinking I don't need a d&c again but need to either take cytotec or take birth control pills just for a month. He said it would help regulate my hormones and make me have a period which should get the rest of the blood out. He said he did not want to waste any time at all and wants us back to TTC ASAP. I was so happy to hear that. I get some blood work back tomorrow and then we decide the course of action. Once AF shows I'll go back to him and get Femara again. It worked on the first round last time and the doc is hopeful it will work quickly again. He also doesn't believe there's any damage from the m/c so he thinks I'll be fine.
I'm so relieved and finally got the hope I was looking for without going to my usual OB office which is full of pregnant women who hate that they're pregnant. Ugh! I really feel like things are going to be okay now. It looks like it'll be a month probably before we'll be back to TTC but that's not too long and it'll probably go by quick enough. Can't wait to be back TTC. Ever since we lost the baby I want nothing more than to be pregnant again...well once I got over the hardest part anyway. We just can't give up our dream of having a family.
