New to thebump, and to any TTC forums. (Though I've been lurking on a couple for a few weeks now.) MC at 6w2d on Aug 3 while on a 5-week trip away from DH and my docs.
DH and I were NTNP for about a year, but now we're 3 cycles in (including the MC) to a regimen with BD schedules and repeat testing and long waits to see specialists. I thought I might get lucky last cycle (post MC fertility bump?), but AF is here and heavier than ever.
As for risk factors: I'm 37, have anemia, adenomyosis, and allergies that have gone bananas over the past 8 months. I had three terminations during college, all pregnancies that happened with bf's while on the pill. (Wtf, I know. Please no judgements here.) I haven't been on any hormones for over ten years though, and the drastic shift from overly-fertile to quiet womb makes me very nervous.
All my family and friends know I've wanted to be a mom since I was 9. Convincing DH to start trying has been it's own really long exhausting journey. My friends are done having kids/trying to have kids/talking about having kids. I'm feeling emotionally raw and worried about the impact of being bummed and just not myself. I'm letting the uncertainty of this process really get to me.
So... now that I've got all my Debbie Downer intro stuff out, I'll be sunnier when I show up in the other posts/check-in. Looking forward to hearing/supporting everyone's journeys.
