It's be a long LONG 2 months since I lost my angel. The grieving process has eased some in the past month and I feel like I am getting back to normal but I must admit, I worry now.
Last month I had a normal period. It was about 5 weeks after the d&c. A little late but actually about right since my hormones weren't back to normal until the week after the d&c. This month I am a week late. We have been very careful but I still took a test and it said negative but it could have been too soon to tell. I am so worried because I have had sharp pains. I keep thinking, "well if I am pregnant, these pains aren't normal. If I am not, that dumb doctor could have messed me up." Has anyone else had this problem after a miscarriage and d&c?
I'm sorry for your loss :( I lost a baby in 2009 and then again now (going through the process now). It's such an empty feeling...especially when you were really excited about the baby.
After my 2009 miscarriage I got pregnant 6 weeks after my D&C (found out 8 weeks after) but my first two pregnancies tests were negative before they showed up positive. I am not sure if maybe the procedure messed with my ovulation...who knows.... But I ended up having a perfect pregnancy that time and have a healthy two year old now.
You'll be very worried when you get pregnant again. it's normal. But odds are in your favor that all will be well. Also, before my 1st miscarriage, I had tried for 2 years to get pregnant with no luck. Then I got pregnant VERY FAST after the miscarriage. So you are more fertile...like everyone says.
Good luck to you!!! I felt I really healed when I got pregnant again and the pregnancy got past the 12 week. But you always remember......
Thanks for your response. I wasn't trying to get pregnant again so soon. My miscarriage about cost me my life and I am so nervous about it now. I woke up sick this morning and now I am just wondering if I am not pregnant again...
