Hi, i'm kinda new to this but a new friend told me it would help. I just recently lost my baby at 14 weeks pregnant a few days ago, had a D/C done yesterday exactly 24 hours ago. Still in a lot of pain physically and emotionally. I'm just so numb feeling now, not sure how to even begin to move on. And it's even more difficult because I couldn't get my soon to be former OB to give me an appointment to see how it was progressing, ow all of a sudden they want to be at my every beck and call. How do you deal with something like this?View Thread
I am so sorry for your loss and I am glad that I'm not the only one to go through this. It seems like it would be easier to cope but all the difficulties I had with my old OB are making it a little more difficult to say the least. I've been trying to take it one day at a time. It seems promising that I may be able to get pregnant as soon as the waiting period is over because I ovulated on November 27th, a couple weeks after my m/c and d&c. It's just the waiting that is really hard to get through because I would like another baby now but i know that my body isn't completely healed. I'm in the middle of my first AF since everything happened, I was hoping that I could get tghrough it without more birth control pills but unfortunately the bleeding was so heavy that my new OB had me to start taking one of the sample packs of pills. One every 8 hours until I finish the pack. I'm praying that after this I won't have to take anymore birth control. But my doctor said that on the off chance that I do nave to go back on them to control my hormone levels and keep them stable, we would have to go a different route as far as having another baby. Praying though that my body gets with the program and doesn't have to be back on the hormones again. I just wanna find the easiest way to cope with the loss. It's so hard just coping.View Thread
