I am new to this community. I had a miscarriage on April 17th, 2013 when I was 8 weeks 1 day pregnant. It was traumatic to say the least. It wasn't planned but was a very pleasant surprise for my husband and I. Now that it's been 8 days since my miscarriage and my bleeding has stopped I feel like myself again, physically. I'm completely consumed with being pregnant again. Once my husband and I got a taste of having a child we realized how badly we want this and want to start trying again. I have read up on so many websites and books about miscarriages and trying again. I had an abortion 7 years ago and now am feeling like "did i miss my chance to be a mother?" I know they say that at 8 weeks they are most likely from a chromosomal abnormality, but you can't help but have this fear it's not going to happen. Every day that goes by is torture because I would give anything to be pregnant again. I guess there's not really a question in here, I just want to talk to people who have been through something similar and can give me hope. Like all of you, doctor said no reason to just keep trying and that my chances aren't high to get pregnant.She said as soon as I stop bleeding to give it a good (well and I start ovulating). I need some support! Help \View Thread
Thank you for the caring words. It's comforting in knowing you are not alone. Its very hard to move forward when you're dealing with grief and then a hospital on top of you trying to get thousands of dollars out of you. This whole thing is so very overwhelming. I know my husband grieves, but in a completely different way.View Thread
