Hello there. Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Tracie. I have a 2 year old son and a wonderful husband! We found out we were pregnant in Nov. of 2012. We went for our first appt. at 8.5 weeks and they told me that the baby was only measuring at 6 weeks but there was a heartbeat. I was told I was at high risk of having a miscarriage. I went home hopeful that my dates were off and the doctors were wrong. Unfortunately I was the one that was wrong. Christmas eve I started spotting and on the 27th I went in for another ultrasound (a week after the first one) and they said there was no heartbeat and no growth. I was devastated. My parents took us away for the weekend the next day to get away at the ocean (3 hours away) and on the way there the miscarriage started. By the time we got to the hotel room I was hemmoraging severly and they had to call 911 and the ambulance took me away to the hospital. I ended up having an emergency D&C. The whole experience was probably the worst thing I have ever been through.

I am hoping that the next time I get pregnant I do not have to go through that again!!! My DH and I are planning on trying right away. Even though the doctor told me to wait 1 cycle, I am having a hard time obeying! LOL!!

Big hugs!! That sounds awful. I hope you find yourself pregnant again soon. Usually the wait is suggested for emotional reasons, so if you feel ready then get busy!

Wow, I'm so sorry you went through that! As if losing a baby wasn't hard enough

Yeah, it was suggested to us to wait 2 cycles. I'm almost finished my 1st cycle and we won't be waiting another one. Emotionally, having a period when I was supposed to be 23 weeks was the absolute worst... I don't want to go through that again if I can help it.

I'm so sorry you went thru that. It sounds very traumatic. I hope you get some healing before your next cycle and you get a very sticky rainbow baby pronto.
