hi mamas - was trying for baby #2 and really wanted this cycle to be it from a planning perspective...conceived on vacation in Maui...found out after Xmas we did it! Confirmed with 3 positive digital tests over 1 week. It was the only Xmas gift I asked for. I started spotting on 1/4 so went to doctor and urine test was negative. Last period was 12/2 so would have only been about 4.5 weeks along. Bloodwork confirmed it was a chemical miscarriage - hcg and progesterone too low for a healthy pregnancy. No cramping at all...just medium bleeding for 36 hours. I'm so sad but trying to remind myself this was not a healthy pregnancy and we will conceive again. I am 35 and work FT and travel for work so finding time for see is hard! I have a healthy 2 year old and know we are so blessed.
How did you stay positive and limit stress to conceive again? I'm very fearful which I know I need to let go of.
