Does anyone know if there is a way to record a miscarriage on TCOYF software besides just saying menstruation? It keeps telling me to start checking my CM which clearly isn't going to happen because I am still bleeding.
Welcome! There is a lot of support her from awesome ladies! I have a 4 kids too! Your children are around the same age as mine and in the same order. How funny. I have a 6yo son, 3.5yo daughter, 2yo, daughter and 6 month old daughter. I am also a SAHM.
Thank you ladies. I really have appreciated the support you have all shown here throughout this heartbreaking journey of mine. This experience was quite different from my previous loss because I was a lot farther along this time around. My loss last year was very early (5.5 weeks). Anyway, it is an experience I won't soon forget and hope not to go through again.
JMJ~ Thanks for letting me know about being potentially fertile sooner than I would expect. I plan on...
JMJ~ Thanks for asking. I ended up passing the baby late morning before my appointment. I was relieved that it happened before because I think my OB would have insisted on my taking the medicine to speed things along. It went very well considering. Everything came out in one piece which my OB said was the best possible outcome. After looking at my u/s he said that I won't need a D&C . The only thing left is the lining which I will need to shed. He also said that I should...
JMJ~ I have lurked over there a bit, but don't feel comfortable sharing. I actually found Pregnova's post on her experience and it helped me out a lot. I go in to my OB today at 3:15p, so will have more answers then. BTW I had no idea you were expecting, Congrats!! Also,I am glad you have stuck around. You are a wealth of knowledge and have helped myself and many others with this charting thing!
JMJ- I probably should, but I just feel comfortable here. I'm sorry I keep bringing it up. I know this isn't really the place for it. Hopefully tomorrow at my OB appointment I will get more answers and can get back to my regular charting questions.
Thanks Kat. I appreciate the hug
JMJ~ You were right. I have started bleeding red again, so I guess things aren't quite over yet. Honestly though I don't know how much longer I can go through this uncertainty. This week has been so physically and emotionally exhausting, I just want it over. I really thought that once I started bleeding things would happen quick, not be this drawn out and slow. This is so tough.
My temps are still ranging above my coverline. I have had some bleeding the past few days, but nothing super heavy. Kinda like a medium period. Anyway, I thought that it was starting last night because I was getting pretty regular contractions, but then they went away again. This morning when I went to the bathroom, the bleeding had stopped. I am talking NOTHING on the TP or my pad. What the heck is going on here? Is it possible I already miscarried without all the pain...
Pregnova~ First of all I want to say I am very sorry for your loss. I am actually going though a natural miscarriage myself right now (10 weeks) that is seeming to take forever. I started spotting last Saturday, but didn't count CD1 until red flow yesterday. If you look through the last couple of posts, you will see I had asked some of the same questions you have. It may be helpful before someone more knowledgeable than me comes along to help out. ((hugs))
