It has been an emotional roller coaster for me these past few weeks. I found out I was pregnant 9/18 and was in total shock. I'm 27 and have been in a long term relationship but had never really considered becoming a mom. My partner and I contemplated our options and decided with excitement to go through with the pregnancy. It was the happiest I've been in awhile. All of a sudden I had this bright new future and the possibilities were endless. I anxiously awaited my fist unltrasound and finally it came on 10/23. My Dr estimated I was 7 weeks +1 because I had no idea when my LMP was but I was curtain I had one in August. Sadly no heartbeat was detected and he mentioned seeing a lack
Of blood flow. I was told to have blood work done and return in 48 hoursfor another round of blood work to test my HGC levels. Thursday I was told they had decreased from 2200 to 1600. I was devastated. I feel my pregnacy symptoms subsiding and nothing seems appealing to me. I can't eat all I want to do is lay around. I go for my final ultrasound on Monday to confirm my Miscarriage. I think I will opt for a D & C as I want this to be over with quickly so my body can heal. I am grateful for discovering what motherhood means to me and I find that I would like to try again. My boyfriend would like to as well once everything is back to normal. How soon after my D & C can I expect a period and when can I start TTC. Thanks ahead of time for the insight.

I am so sad and sorry to hear of your loss. It is a very difficult time.

I found out I had a mmc at 12 weeks. As you are I was utterly devastated. Beyond distraught. I missed my baby so, so much. I didn't expect to ever recover.

I think I was told I had to wait 8 weeks til I tried to conceive again.

Fortunately 12 weeks after my mmc I became pregnant and within three years had three babies.

Whilst I remember being so sad at that time I know that if I hadn't lost that baby I wouldn't have the babies I have now and I wouldn't change that for the world.

Feel free to pm me if you think I can help or even take your mind of things. It is truly a harrowing time.
