So I am sorry that I came on here and just began to ask questions. My name is Jenn and I am the mother of two kids. Rylin (6 today) and Emmalynne (4). Just recently my husband (active duty Navy) was out to sea for a few months. When he returned we DTD and of course next thing I knew I was pregnant. We were both excited as I am sure most are, but that slowly stopped when I went in and was supposed to be like 5 weeks and they found no sac. There was nothing showing that anything had begun other than the HCG levels in my system. After two long weeks, some back pains, bleeding, and many sticks to check levels they determined I was having a miscarriage. I am still kind of numb from the thought and really in no way feel that it has completely sunk in. I know it has as I have done some crying and all but I do not think that it has 100% sunk in.
I thought it strange that I all of a sudden wanted to immediately try again and I was not even done bleeding from the miscarriage, but then as I began to do research I found that many women do not want to wait because they do not want to be reminded of the miscarriage. That sounds about right. Either way here I am.
I am a military spouse and we are soon to transfer. That is coming up in August. We are going to be moving to Washington state and are currently in Hawaii. I am a student as well and in graduate school. It is nice to meet you all.

Hello Jenn - I am so sorry for your loss. Welcome to the board. My name is Elle, DH and I are trying to conceive our first- it is really nice to be on here and have the support of other ladies who have been in similar situations. This is a really amazing group. I look forward to getting to know you!
Welcome I'm in a very similar situation as you. Got pregnant with baby #3 very unexpectedly, but so happy about it. Never felt 'right' during my pregnancy and ended up finding out that I had a 'missed miscarriage' followed by a D&C the day I should have been 12 weeks and as well as my 35th birthday It took me a while to get my thoughts straight about ttc again, but I've officially decided that is what I want to do! It's been over 4 weeks since my D&C...still patiently waiting for AF to show up though, lol. Anyway, my name is Samantha and it's nice to meet you, even if it has to be under these sad circumstances!
Welcome. I am so sorry for your loss. I felt the same way as you after my loss. I wanted to begin trying immediately because I felt that it would help to dull the pain. Good Luck with TTC and I hope you get a BFP quickly.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
Hi Jenn, so sorry for your loss! I am Cary, I had my 1st missed m/c back in '08 and went on to have a healthy baby about 11 months later. I had a 2nd missed m/c in '11 and had another healthy baby 11 months after that. For me, TTC again right away (as soon as I was healed from the procedures - 2 D&Es) was what I needed to get past everything. I hope and pray that you catch that eggie before your DH has to deploy. HUGS and sticky BFP dust comin' at ya!
