I am scared because I have just stopped feeding my little guy and am continuing to TTC. I am a 36YO overweight mom who tried for 4 years for my little guy feeling like I don't really have 4 years to do this again. I have always had irregular periods, Clomid did not help me ovulate, but the first time I tried it, it kicked my periods into a 6 - 8 week cycle and I had an early miscarriage 8 or so months later, then went back to irregular periods. So the second time around, after trying Clomid, I did FSH injections for 2 rounds, which supposedly induced ovulation but not successful fertilization with IUI. After the injections, however, I did start getting regular periods every 6 weeks or so. I then lost about 30 pounds and my husband had knee surgery and was off work and voila! Baby! Currently, I have been having semi-regular periods (5 - 6 weeks) since January and am afraid what will happen with the hormone adjustment of not breastfeeding anymore.View Thread
I had a loss at one point when we were trying, but I didn't know I was pregnant (was afraid to test and be disappointed, though I was having symptoms). So, 3 years later, when we were finally pregnant again, I was too afraid to get very excited - the WHOLE time. (healthy, happy little man angel now). I understand all the feelings surrounding a loss, it challenged who I saw myself as, and the life I thought I was headed for, challenged my feeling about the core of my being a woman. It's tough to get past all that, but the most important things are to realize it IS more common than anyone knows, because a lot of people have them and don't know it, like the PP said. Also, it IS NOT YOUR FAULT. The majority of the time, it is a chromasomal issue that can't be prevented, and isn't viable. NOTHING you can do/could have done could change the outcome. It's also important to stay calm and positive about it (easier said than done). Calmer, more positive usually = easier to conceive. You are so strong to have been able to get through what you have been through, and your baby will be the better for having such a strong mommy.View Thread
