I am so sorry to hear that, when I read your post saying your last period could've been August I thought maybe that was the mix up. Wishing you all the best in the future for you and your family ((((hugs)))))

Baves, just want to hear how you are doing?  I have benn thinking about you all day. I am so sad for your loss.
Once you are given the okay to try again, I would start on the baby aspirin right away. I swear that is what is keeping my baby growing.
Hugs to you!

I am to continue taking the baby aspirin until we get closer to the delivery date. Aspirin can cause you to bleed more. So I will continue to take them until they tell me to stop. I also take prenatal vitamins, folic acid.
Take it easy this week, try to get some rest. Have they given you something to take for the pain?

Give yourself some time. It is so hard to think about trying again when you have just had a loss. You need some time to heal.

Yes.  Start taking one baby aspirin a day when you decide you want to start trying. Also take your prenatal and folic acid.
If you do decide that you want to start trying soon. I would wait a few weeks, so you havea chance to heal from your surgery. Cause aspirin makes you bleed more easily.

It is a pill 81 mg.  
I don't know why it is called baby aspirin, since babies can't take it. Aspirin can cause an illness in children, Reye syndrome. I guess they call it baby aspirin because it is a low dose aspirin. Lots of people with heart problems take them.

As long as you don't have a bleeding disorder, the aspirin should be fine. It thins your blood a bit. So I find if I cut myself r get a bruise, it bleeds more. You can always talk to your doctor about it if you are unsure.

Baves, what you are feeling right now is completely normal.  That is how I felt. I cramped for several weeks after and had bleeding.
As for your feelings, I went thru that to. But don't worry, it does get better in time.  My last miscarriage was Dec.14th and I did not want to celebrate Christmas, but had to for the sake of everyone else. I just went thru the motions. I survived it, but did not enjoy it. My heart was broken and I was suffering. It took me months and months to emotionally heal.  Your family and friends just need to give you some time, you need to mourn your loss in your own way.
Men and women grieve differently. I am sure your husband is grieving as well, he is just trying to be strong, and sucking it up, and trying to move on. My husband did that and it made me angry at first. I thought he didn't care.
I just wanted to lie in bed all day and cry, or I just felt numb and lost inside and hated anyone that was pregnant and happy.
You are having big adjustments in hormones right now as well, and that can be a yo-yo ride of emotions.
Just give yourself time, and talk about your feeling and thoughts with people to can understand and not judge. You will eventually be whole again. Hang in there!

I had a miscarriage earlier this year. I was 9 weeks along and when I had my sonogram, there wasn't a fetal pole. I had to have a d and c done a week later. I hope you can get another ultrasound done and see a little heartbeat:)

Baves, it took me about 6-7 weeks after my DNC before I got a real period. It sounds like everything is normal what you are going thru.
Everything seems to be going well with me. I am going to the hospital in a couple of hours for my detailed ultrasound and see if baby is girl or boy. I will update you later. I am so nervous. I still worry that something is going to happen to baby. I guess when we have had reoccurring miscarriages it is normal to worry, but I sure wish I could put my mind at ease and stop worrying.

Hi. I just read this entire thread & wanted to say how sorry I am. I too had a miscarriage, my 2nd pregnancy, @ 12 weeks. It was a blighted ovum where the sac & placenta continued to grow and hcg levels to rise. Fortunately I did not have to have a dnc,  it was able to pass on its own. As someone else had stated, it was like full blown labor! Possibly because my placenta continued to grow & was very large. I thought I had passed a kidney! It was the most devestating thing I have ever been through!
Afterwards, I was so desperate to be pregnant again, it was all I could think of! I spent hours online researching miscarriage & ways to prevent, etc. Anything to give me hope. One thing I found was that the majority of miscarriages are due to neurological deficiencies but this can easily be corrected by taking daily doses of folic acid & eating foods high in folic acid such as dark green vegetables.
Many times, chronic miscarriages are due to something going wrong once the pregnancy is established. For instance, blood clogging in the umbilical cord & cutting off nutrients to the baby. That is where the baby aspirin helps. Another reason could be rheumatoid arthritis in the mother. The mothers immune system fails to recognize the baby & thinking it is a foreign body, will attack & destroy it. This however is easy to diagnose through blood tests (a rheumatoid titer, ask your Dr for this) & is treated with medication to suppress it.
Your issue may not have anything to do with any of these, but it is something to think about. Taking the baby aspirin (also called "low-dose aspirin") & folic acid are easy enough to do, as well as getting a blood test from your Dr. If for nothing else than to just rule it out.
I wish you all the best & good luck!
P.S. Go easy on your husband. Remember, he lost a baby too & men don't always know how to handle it.

We went for the ultrasound today and the baby was squirming quite a bit and it took over an hour for it to reveal its gender. We are having a boy :) everything looked normal, and on schedule he was showing 19 weeks, and that is exactly what he should be.

It sounds like you aren't in the best of situations. I am so sorry you are having such a tough time.  
How long have you and your husband been together?
It must be tough living with your inlaws. Have you thought of maybe getting your husband to move you all out of his parents place and get a place of your own?  Or maybe you really need to re-evaluate your relationship and decide if you love him enough to stay and if he loves you enough to work this out.

I am going to send you a friend request :) Then we can talk privately. That is sweet that you want to send baby something, but you don't need to do that. That is very sweet though :)
It sounds like you do both love each other and maybe you just need some time to works some things out and make things better.  it sounds like it would be worth it.  Maybe you are the one that will need to start to make a few changes in order for things to start getting better. Have you tried to figure out why he makes you angry? Why you yell at him? What needs to change to not make you angry at him?
What do you want him to do to spend more time with your son? Maybe he needs to be given some ideas or suggestions, if he didn't have a good upbringing and a positive male role model in his life, then maybe he really doesn't know what a dad needs to do.

I would give it a few months. I know it s hard to wait.  I tried to get pregnant a month after first DNC and ended up with a second miscarriage. Then I waited longer second time, (3 months) but it took 7 to get pregnant. I have to take the right dose of Clomid to get pregnant. My RE wanted to try me on a lower dose, and 4 months went by, and nothing. As soon as he put me back on the higher dose I was pregnant that month.
During te waiting time I started taking a health food supplement called Maca, Royal Jelly, co-q10.   And I really believed it helped my egg quality improve. I really believe egg quality was my problem.

Baves. I think April would be a perfect time to try again. That gives you around 7 months of healing before you try again. Just make sure you take your folic acid, and prenatal vitamins. And talk to ob about adding any aspirin, and then hopefully you will get pregnant and ave a healthy pregnancy :)
I am glad to hear that you and your hubby are trying to work things out. This sort of thing can make or break a marriage sometimes.
We have decided to name our son. Obgyn thought it was a good idea to help us be closer to him, consider how nervous I am of losing him, because of my other losses. We have named him Hunter Ryan Jones. It is kinda neat talking to my tummy and calling him by name. I will keep you updated on his progress.
I am happy to have met you and made friends with you too!

It probably is from stress what you are feeling. Good idea about going o the doctor.  He might have something that could ease your discomfort.  Going back to work and keeping busy might be just what you need. What do you do for work?

On the top of the page on the right hand side s te inbox.mcluck on that. It should show friend request there. Or click on my name and choose friend request.
What sort of work do you think you would like to do?
I know wat you mean about wanting a baby so bad...... I truthfully was feeling very sad and depressed until I got pregnant again. Having a baby was all I could think of.  All you can do is try to live day to day and get thru it. Hopefully you will be successful soon and get your baby.

Yes, it is normal. Same thing happened to me.  It is just your body readjusting. It is nice to hear from you, I have been thinking f you and wodnering how you were doing.
I am doing good. I am 24 weeks on Monday. Things seem to be progressing like normal. I have been starting to get Braxton hick contractions. Sure hope he doesn't decide to try and come into the world too early.
Hang in there Baves, when the time is right, hopefully you will get the right egg fertilized and carry on to have your baby :)

I just was wondering how you are doing? I had my d & c Oct 8th. I still think about my baby angel. I blame myself for my baby's loss. I did a lot of things I should not have like being around chemicals and such. Good luck when you try again and keep us updated.

You can't blame yourself for your loss. I was around chemicals with my first pregnancy with the twins, and I don't blame myself. I was still embalming and working with formaldehyde.  We live and learn. This time I am taking extra precautions and I am staying away from chemicals, just in case.
I know it wasn't the chemicals,, it was probably a chromosome problem.
