A miscarriage is bad enough but this waiting for a period and not knowing if it is it or if it is just left over bleeding from the D&C and miscarriage is driving me nuts! I'm feeling so worried because I think that the bleeding I am having is too soon after my D&C to be considered a period. How can I find out for sure? There doesn't seem to be any information about whether or not this is a period or if it is continued bleeding. My bleeding had stopped on or around April 5th, 2010. And I am getting what seems to be a period right now. It started April 18th but that is only 13 days after the original bleeding had stopped. Ahhh. This is all so frustrating. I thought things were getting back to normal but now I feel like I am starting all over again. If this is more bleeding from the D&C then this is not normal and I think I should go back for more blood work and an ultrasound to check to make sure that I am ok. If this is my period then yay! I'll be so excited because then we can start trying again. Why does this have to be so confusing. I wish the doctors could be more helpful because the worrying is making me so anxious and I'm not being myself. I just want to get pregnant again and to have a healthy normal baby. It sounds like a lot to ask but then there are so many people who dread getting pregnant and it seems so easy for them. Why, why, why? I've been asking that a lot lately and there just doesn't seem to be any real answers. The bleeding continues....
