Pregnant after a Loss

Can I ask a ?

Thanks for taking the time to read and if you post, thank you. First off, congrats for your pg and best of luck! I hope to join you in the future. I'm curios to hopefully hear some stories from you. I am sure you can see my siggy history, but the short story is after 3 ivfs I finally became pg, heard the hb at 6w4d and lost it sometime after since baby passed by the us at 8w6d. I had a DandC Friday and recovering well. Of course I read and hear the great chances of getting pg after a loss but this one pg took 2.5 years and after 6 fertility treatments over the past 1.5 years. The only bright side is we are undiagnosted. Tests are normal. So I'm curious if anyone with fertility troubles was lucky enough to get pg naturally after an Ivf miscarriage. It will be a year before we can afford another treatment and the idea of using ovulation kits and timed intercourse in the meantime seems like a waste of time and big disappointment. I can't even believe I am thinking of trying again and excited and terrified at the same time! Thanks again!

  • First, I am so very sorry for your loss and your struggles.   A lot, if not most, of the women on this board fit into your question.  I cannot speak for anyone other than myself.....  Personally, DH and I have been TTTC since 5/2010.  We have been on fertility meds since 10/2010 (with a few on/off cycles)  Both previous pregnancies we during cycles without meds, however, we always continued to temp, check cm, and chart.  This pregnancy is a Femara IUI baby.  Our next cycle would have been IVF.  I completely understand being overwhelmed and the struggles emotionally with being so involved in your daily/monthly utility; however, I would continue to chart/temp if I were in your shoes as that will give you the best chance to conceive naturally as you are waiting on fertility treatments.  FX that 2013 brings you a rainbow baby!!!!

  • I'm sorry for your loss. All 3 of my pregnancies were the result of IF meds, we tried for months after our first loss to see if we would fit in that catagory, but alas after 8 months nothing. We had been trying since 2004.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. Me and my DH struggled with IF for 9 years, finally got pregnant with IVF but we lost our daughter Isabella at 26weeks. I got pregnant naturally 6weeks later. It has been a struggle grieving our daughter and being pregnant again. I am happy everyday though for this baby. I wish you the best of luck.
