intro one week post-d&e (and a question) — The Bump
TTC After a Loss

intro one week post-d&e (and a question)

Hi Ladies, I'm venturing over from M/PL now that I'm a week post d&e and I'm starting to piece my world back together. My story is here (sorry, on a Mac and can't get it to be clicky)

http://community.thebump.com/cs/ks/forums/thread/51014718.aspx

But my d&e was closure for me since we had a week to come to terms with the reality of our loss. In the week since I've had only two days of light spotting, and nothing for the last two days so I'm hoping my body is adjusting (yay) the past two days I actually feel like myself again, I feel emotionally stable (after a couple days of sadness and anger.) I will always be sad, but it has gotten better since last week. 

My question is did anyone start their BBT on the day of their d&c (or d&e)?? what were your patterns like afterwards? I'm already down to my pre-preg. coverline (the past couple days) my doctor doesn't check hcg levels after d&e's so I'm hoping my BBT will help me understand my body better as it finds my "new normal." Also curious to see if I will O this month (or however long it takes to get my first AF)

I don't know how long I will have to TTA for but I have my f/u a week from tomorrow to talk to the dr. about what's next. Any advice and tips from those who have been in my shoes is appreciated. We're both on board with TTC asap (after dr's ok!) so  I hope to be here often while we're waiting and beyond!

Sorry for all your losses, sad that we all have to be here but glad for the support. We had not told anyone yet (d&e was at 9 weeks) so this has been a VERY private matter between H & myself so it's especially nice for me to have these boards to turn to when I've needed it.

    Welcome to the board.  I am so sorry for your loss. I did not have a D&E.  I started bleeding today and I think I will wait a few days before I start taking my BBT again.

    Because of the great "Snow"vember of 2015, my medicated cycle was cancelled.  However, we were blessed with our little rainbow baby due on 8/14/15!  Baby J had other plans and decided to make his grand ole entrance on 7/4/2015!

    Surprise!  Our little girl entered this world on 12/8/2016 after her eviction notice was long past due.  Our little turkey baby turned into a snow baby!
