Hi all, I don't know which board I belong on right now. I had 2 confirmed MC (and one suspected one--it was very early and I never tested) in December 2014 at about 7 weeks and in August 2015 at about 5.5 weeks (the suspected was June 2015). My doctor did some blood tests on myself and my husband, and he has an abnormality that can cause first-trimester MC. Right after we got these results I found out I was pregnant again...I was fully expecting another MC and was just waiting for it to happen, and then had a successful 8w ultrasound and now have a beautiful 17 month old baby.
We are just starting to TTC again. It's so scary. I just got my period today so I know I'm not pregnant with month #1 here (we weren't trying hard, so it's not surprising, although I'm still disappointed...but also relieved, because as much as I want another baby the BFP means about 4 weeks of waiting for either a spontaneous MC or the ultrasound which could be good or bad news). I figure this board might understand the desperate want of the BFP coupled with the fear of if it will be viable or not.
Most people TTC are just waiting for the BFP, but to me that's just the first step. I can't go to the infertility boards because my history has no problem getting pregnant, it's staying pregnant that's a problem. And don't think I'm supposed to mention the MC on the regular TTC board. But I'm not sure if this board is the right place because I had a baby between the loss and now--is this alright?
