I just wanted to share with you all a newspaper column I wrote about my m/c and second pregnancy. It was the first time I was able to write about the m/c and emotions I went through after getting preg again.
I was inspired by Lisa Ling's announcement on the view way back.

I hope it gives other TTCAL women hope. No pressure to read. It might be a snoozer!

thanks ladies!

Wow! Great job! I understand exactly how you are feeling! We had a m/c in June of 2010. Then it took us a year to get pregnant again. We are so lucky that God blessed us with twins. I always tell my husband I am not complaining about ligament pains or m/s...because I know that those are good things....but I am just letting you know how I feel.

Thanks for the positive feedback. and for not falling asleep while reading.

It was just a hard struggle to get preg the first time and the loss was crippling and another year to get pregnant again, ugh. its nice to know you ladies were there too once. HUGS to all of us for our struggle. hopefully only happy times ahead!

Very nice! My first pregnancy was a m/c, and like you I was terrified when I got pregnant again. Each day gets easier. I think we're safe now!

That is a great, very well written story of your journey. It must have been hard for you to write, but good to get it out. I too had a m/c. It was when i was 17 though so I had not been trying to conceive for over a year like you, but it still hurt. Coming up on my first ultrasound on Monday I keep thinking about the ultrasound I had way back then when I found out I miscarried. It was so devastating. Just know you are not alone. Thanks for sharing your story with us.
