I found out yesterday that the baby stopped growing. I kind of knew that anyway since this pregnancy started out a little weird. I got off the pill October 4th and think I got pregnant right away. Symptoms within a couple of weeks. But they could never date the pregnancy.
My first ultrasound showed I was around 4-5 weeks pregnant; which was about 4 weeks earlier than I thought. I guess it stopped growing around 4-5 weeks. I started bleeding Sunday and am having a "regular like" period since. I went to the doctor yesterday and he said the yolk sac has not collapsed yet and so I am going back Wednesday. I'm guessing he will check me again.
I just do not want a D&C, so I am hoping it passes on its own. I thought I would have major cramping and lots of blood with a miscarriage, but none of that so far. Is it coming or is it normal to have a normal period flow?
BTW, my doctor told me that if I want to try again, there is no waiting period. He said my hormones will be very high right after a miscarriage and that he sees plenty of girls in the office the month after a miscarriage starting another pregnancy. It happened to my sister. She got pregnant the month after each of her two miscarriages.
I'm sorry you have gone through this 3 times. That would be incredibly difficult, I'm sure!
I hope and pray this is my one and only miscarriage since I do not plan to try over and over.
I hope your next one is successful as well. And, I hope it happens soon for you!
I bled for about one week; with 3 days having LOTS of clots. That was hard because I could not be away from the toilet for more than a few minutes at a time. No serious cramping or fever. As bad as it was, I was still expecting MUCH worse.
We started trying last night (more like "practicing" since it's early still). We will try for a few months and then see where we stand. Since we have two healthy boys at home, I'm not sure how long we will try since it may just not be in God's plans for us.
