Quick hello — The Bump
TTC After a Loss

Quick hello

Hi all. We have one healthy 9 month boy and tested positive for baby #2 on April 1st, but when we went in at about 9 weeks , we found out baby stopped growing during week 6. We opted for a natural miscarriage, but my blood loss was so heavy and quick I was instructed to go to the ER where they did a d&c. Today is my post op appointment and am curious what the doctor will say about trying again since we really want to keep this baby bandwaggon going (we're both older). But I just wanted to say how thankful I am to have found this board and read some of your posts. It's really encouraging, insightful, eductqtional, and just nice to have a place to talk openly about everything we are going through. I already appreciate you ladies!

  • Hi @ekneipp, I am so sorry for your loss, but wanted to welcome you to the board.  I had a MMC at 12wks with my first pregnancy and we opted to go for the D&C route.  I hope your appointment goes well.

  • Sorry for your loss. I had a d&c for mmc and was told to wait one cycle to ttc again. Every doctor seems to be different and obviously your health plays a factor in how soon you ttc as well. I hope you get your rainbow baby soon!
  • I'm on my second post-d&c cycle, but it appears I still have hcg, so fingers crossed for next month. I'm TTC#1 and I'll be 37 in a couple of weeks, so the clock's ticking for me, too!

    Good luck!
