TTC after MC-What Next?
I started bleeding three days ago, with a lot of heavy bleeding and big clots (and pain-OUCH!) yesterday. Today it is very minimal, but still happening. I am really glad that I lost the baby early and not later in the pregnancy, that would make it so much harder. And I'm also glad the bleeding started right after I found out my HCG levels were dropping instead of being tortured waiting a few weeks like my doc said was possible. So yay for small favors. Anyway, they said to wait one cycle to start ttc again. For the other ladies who have miscarried (this was a natural mc), I was wanting your feedback:
How long did it take for you to get another period after you bled?
How long does it take for fertility and ovulation to come back? Could it take several cycles like when you come off of bc?
Should I expect my cycle to be out of whack for a few months as it re-adjusts, or will it go right back to normal potentially?
And how am I supposed to shake this fn feeling of dread? IDK why, I can't explain it, but even starting back from when we first started ttc in December, I just had this unshakeable feeling that I am not going to have another baby. This mc is only making that feeling stronger. This experience has made me remember how thankful I am for my three children. Sometimes we take things for granted and need an emotional ass-kicking to stop it. Message heard loud and clear!!! I am really lucky and I know that. But I'm just not feeling confident this is going to work out for us. I'm not going to give up! And I am going to try my hardest not to stress about it and let it be what it will be. But I like to be in control so this does not mesh with my personality!!! Anyway, did anyone else have feelings like that after a mc?
