I guess I will be the first to post a question/topic. The last couple of months have been very hard. My husband and I experienced a chemical pregnancy the week before Thanksgiving and then again 2 days after Christmas. My doctor does not seem very concerned, but I am starting to wonder if there is something wrong with me? I'm hoping the first one was one of those 60% chance of being a chemical pregnancy that women face and the second was because we got pregnant too soon. That would mean that we won't have problems the next time (hopefully). I can't help but worry about the next time we do get pregnant. We are taking a month off in hopes that it will help. I am still taking prenatal vitamins and have added vitamin b6 to my diet. Any thoughts on why this happened and anybody ever have a successful pregnancy after 2 early miscarriages and how? Everytime I think I am over it, something brings it all back and its just getting too hard. I just need some more info from women who have experienced it. Thank you.
Well, I haven't ever experienced a chemical pregnancy before (I don't think). The miscarriage I had wasn't diagnosed clearly...I think it was chromosomal abnormalities that caused ours. I think it sounds like your fine. And healthy. I don't think you should worry. (Especially if your doctor isn't worried ;) I think what happened is you tried to get pg. too soon after your m/cs. Your body needs a chance to recover. I had an early m/c as well...the doctor told me I needed to wait about 4 to 6 months before trying to conceive again. You've got to give your body enough time to heal...as well as your emotions. Every woman, and pregnancy is different...however I still would suggest waiting for about 4 or 6 months before trying again. Don't rush it, just relax, be patient...and it will happen when it's supposed to.
PS: It's hard for me too...my Husband and I got pg about 4 months* after we got married, then m/c happened. I went through a lot of depression ...and than finally...on Father's Day 2010...I felt it was time we started trying to have a baby again. Still...nothing...but we aren't given up! It's hard. But we are keeping the Faith! Knowing that it's all in God's hands...helps me have peace. I know He knows what's best for my Husband and I...even better than I do. I don't know about you, but Christ's peace is the only remedy that has helped me through my journey. He is my ultimate remedy. That and sleep ;) make sure your getting lot's of sleep that is always very helpful. You mentioned you added vitamin B6 to your diet...I would also suggest - you make sure your getting your vital 400mg of folic acid as well. I used to take prenatal vitamins, but I decided a long time ago that I wasn't going to start taking them until I found out I was pregnant...I have found (for me anyway)...that multivitamins make me feel better...and healthier and they give me the general nutrition I need...before pregnancy. Once I get pregnant, Lord willing :) I will stop taking my multivitamins and I will switch to taking only prenatals. (Unless my doctor tells me otherwise). That's my plan...It works for me...but I don't know your individual health needs so...I would discuss with your doctor...and ask him/her what he/she thought would be the best thing for you to do because...information contained within this site is intended solely for general educational purposes and is not intended nor implied to be a substitute for professional medical advice relative to your specific medical condition or question.

Thank you so much for your quick and uplifting response. It means a lot and has brought some hope. My husband keeps saying the same thing, put it in God's hands, He knows what is best for us. I am starting to slowly focus my attention on that and grasp it. I am so used to being in control and making things happen, so this is very scary and new ground for me. I pray that you and your husband will be blessed with a healthy baby soon!
