I just had a missed miscarraige (last Thursday) and ended up having an emergency D & E that night. Our little bean lived up until 7w1d and I went for my 8 weeks scan on Thursday during which we could not find a heartbeat.
Due to my fertility history they did not do a D & C and and an evacuation was done instead. I was told to wait 2 weeks before resuming intercourse, but that we can start trying right after that if we feel emotionally ready to do so.
Any positive stories of falling pg fairly quickly after a miscarraige or D & C??
Hi joo-ste, I am really sorry to hear, nothing anyone can say will make u feel better.
We also struggled with fertility for 3 years, Dr's thousands later I got told I will never have kids. I fell pregnant in Feb 2015 and lost the baby 9 April 2015. I did not have a D&C as my body completed everything.
It was very hard and I thought that we will wait another 3 years before conceiving again,I was heartbroken I didn't feel like doing anything. speaking to any one or even leaving the house. I lost my soul the day the Dr told me that I am having a mc. I wanted to fall pregnant again as soon as I could but 7 weeks after mc I did not get a period so I went back to the gynie he said he cant find anything and I should wait and I will only get pregnant when my heart is ready but how does a heart heal after that? After 2 normal periods I fell pregnant again and our little rainbow baby boy is due 21 March 2016. We were trying but also not really trying.
I believe that the 1st mc got everything ready for this one, and I thank God everyday for this little one. My due date for the 1st would have been this month and I am in pieces, but I have a miracle inside me that I should be thankful for. It never goes away but it gets easier,
Thank you for your post! It is inspiring to know that you did fall pg - very quickly after your MC and taking into consideration that you struggled for 3 years prior that to conceive the first time. You are right. DH and myself is really shattered. Although we have 2 children already, our family is not complete and we would love more children. We are really very sad at the moment and I find myself crying at the littlest of things happening.
Thank you again for sharing and congratulations on your pregnancy!!!! I am so glad that all is going well.
So Sorry to hear about that!!! It is the most horrific feeling. I also miscarried at night and was taken in to hospital so that I could be monitored, and the morning the doc told me that they have scheduled the evacuation, I was 7 weeks. I had the miscarriage on the 4th of October, the 2nd of October I got to see and hear the heartbeat. We just cried the whole Monday and I am actually starting to feel human again (Just had a horrible October)
I have been ready to try again for a while, but was told to wait for AF to arrive. So far no AF I really hope that she makes her appearance soon.
i am so sorry about your loss. It is mre common than we realise, yet each experiences it so very differently.
We had a miscarriage in August this year, also at about 7 weeks, I did not have a scan as yet, and had only found out I was pregnant the day before!
I had a D&C thereafter. My gynea only told me I should be physically fine in about 2-3 days, and was booked off for 5 days from work. Most of those days I spent wallowing in a dark room, except when I had to be functional!
The good news, we are now pregnant!! I found it in September, but as I had no AFM, I did not even know how far along I was! we were not really planning to fall pregnant, we just did not bother with the contraceptive!
Dont rush the process, when you feel emotionally ready, then take the next step.
What a wonderful happy ending to your story! Did you even get AF after your D & C or did you just fall pg before even having a menstrual cycle? It is such a blessing. I'm really happy for you and trust that you will have a healthy pregnancy until your due date.
I currently feel like you felt. I'm struggeling to get through the day and all I can think of is the last scan we had looking at our precious miracle and seeing that there is no heartbeat. It was so surreal. Prayed so hard that all will be fine, but in the end it was not meant to be.
DH and I spoke a lot over the weekend and we both know that we will only feel better if we actively start TTC again as soon as we get the green light. My age and my fertility history count against me - in waiting too long. Your story gives me hope. How long did you try to fall pg with the baby that you miscarried??
So sorry for your loss!! Is is so horrible to experience it at night time. (NOT that any other time of the day will make it better - I can just remember thinking that I felt even more alone for some people are sleeping and other are watching 7de laan! - and here I am losing our baby). Maybe you should do a pg-test? Would it not be a wonderful blessing if you are already pg!!?? Do you know if you have OV'ed during this cycle?
@Jooste - My miscarriage started around 11:30 pm, but still had hope when DH rushed me to hospital they said it was a threatened miscarriage, but that we will wait for my Gynea. So I was feeling bad when they eventually put me into a ward (this was at 2 or 3 am ) was scared that I would wake everyone up.
I wont be pregnant as we are very careful and DH will wait until I have my first period, as the Gynea said this when he was in the room that we should wait, so we are waiting. DH is truly amazing. I hope to get AF soon and then a BPF on top of that.
I actually think that I did indeed ovulate, but like I said there is no hope for a BFP now.
You should also not stop your vitamins, I just kept on using my folic acid and preggy vitamins.
