Hello, I'm Maria. I quickly introduced myself in the April benchwarmers thread, but I want to write a bit more about myself here.
My first pregnancy turned out to be a blighted ovum, diagnosed at 8 weeks. I got scheduled for a D&C and natural miscarriage started just a few hours before the procedure. I had a fairly quick physical recovery and I'm currently waiting for first AF after my loss to TTC again.
We decided not to tell anyone (not even our parents) until 1st trimester was over, so only DH and I know. Because of that, I've felt a bit isolated, so I decided to join you instead of lurking. After my experience, I don't think it's very helpful to wait until week 13 to tell everyone, since sharing makes us feel less lonely and empathy brings us together more than anything.
I'm sorry we've met in these circumstances. I wish for all of you to have your family dreams fulfilled.
