Miscarried 10/8/12

Hi ladies,

I'm new here, but have frequented some of the other boards. DH and I have been TTC for over 2 years now. I have PCOS and had been taking Metformin and Femara when we were finally surprised with our first BFP ever on 10/4. We we so happy!

Long story short, we lost our baby Monday. I went into the hospital due to intense bleeding, cramping and seeing clotting/tissue. They did a pelvic exam and drew blood to test my HCG levels. Today results from my second blood draw have officially confirmed the loss.

I'm amazed by how upset this has made me when I was only 5-6 weeks pregnant at the time of our loss. Already I felt attached to the little baby growing inside of me. I was so happy to finally be giving DH the son or daughter we'd been trying so long for. I know I'm fortunate that I m/c early, but it's hard to see the positive in something that seems so harsh, cruel and senseless.

I'm waiting to talk to my RE about where we go from here. We want to try again. That's scary, too. I'm terrified of having another m/c. I'm terrified of TTC again as well. I don't know that I can do it for another two years. Anyway, thanks for listening ladies.

I'm sorry for your loss....but I certainly understand your pain. It doesn't matter if you were 5 weeks or 5 months, when you desire to be a parent so much, it's painful no matter what. I didn't even know I was pregnant (though I suspected) when I miscarried but it still put me into a deep depression because my fiance and I talk all the time about growing our family. He has 2 kids and I have 2 from our previous marriages, but we want a DC together! Hang in there, and idk if you're spiritual or not, but it helps me to know that when God deems it the right time, he will bless us with a child.
Take care! ((hugs))
