TTC After a Loss

I need a change ... Introduction

A little introduction about myself.

I'm 39 years old with 2 boys from a previous marriage 19 and 14. My husband and I have been married for 2 years he has no children. I found out I was pregnant in May and just found out Monday at 10 weeks 4 days the baby no longer had a heartbeat. I had a Dnc on tues. My husband is a dr and works a lot and can't be here with me physically through all this. We have a few hours every evening to vent to each other. These forums have been a life saver for me mentally.

I have some medical condition that causes lots of muscle problems and take medication daily to help with that. The drs think I may have the early stages of multiple sclerosis. When I became pregnant all my symptoms went away completely which was wonderful because I couldn't take the meds. Soon after my Dnc the symptoms came back and I had to start on my meds.

I woke up this morning feeling different. I had literally shut myself up in the house blinds closed and laid on the couch all week but I feel it's time to get up and start thinking positive. That's why I came to this forum. We plan to start TTC again as soon as I'm able to. I realized my body is still going through changes but I just need for my mental health to look at the positive in things.

So here I am on this new board introducing myself to start a new chapter in my life. I know I'm not completely over my loss yet but I really NEED to look at the future. I'm sorry if this is a long post.

  • I'm sorry for your loss. It sounds like you are making great steeds in your recovery. While you will never be over your loss the feeling of doom and complete and utter sorrow will pass. Then there are times weeks and months from now when it will be hard again. Just take care of yourself and do the best you can.
    I'm so happy to hear your positive change. I'm sure it's like a breath of fresh clean air. I'm glad you've found us and joined our elite sad club. Welcome.

    All are welcome in my posts

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. Welcome to the board.

    You mentioned you're not completely over your loss yet. Honestly I don't think I'll ever be "over" my loss. I'll carry it with me forever. I'll think of my baby forever. And I think that's okay. Do we have to move on with our lives? Yes. But I don't think that means you should have to feel like you have to get over it. 

    Best of luck to you.

    I'm mobile, so excuse strange wording or punctuation.

    I'm sorry for your loss. This board is wonderful. It's usually quieter on the weekends, so don't be fooled by that since you're introing on a Friday.

    I'm 10days out from my DnC, and I'd still lock myself up if I could. Your feelings are normal, take it one day at a time, it gets a little better each day. Today makes 3days where I've not had a complete full on ugly cry. I still get teary eyed and enough that it runs down my face, but the cries are getting shorter and less dramatic.

    Take the time for yourself and its perfectly ok to grieve, however that may be.
