A big hello to some old friends in the ttc boards, and to the new faces since my last visit.
Hugs to all those the hag has found already (Naturegirl, a special hug for you, I know how hard getting your period is for you, but you *will* get pregnant again, and go on to have a baby in your arms and not just your heart. The waiting is hard, and there isn't a lot you can do to make it easier, but my thoughts are with you)
Well, I really shouldn't be joining this thread, but here I am. I had a d&c for a missed miscarraige on Jan 16 (the baby died early in Dec) and the dr. told me to wait 2 cycles for my uterine lining to be thick enough to support a baby. She didn't give me any helpful hints on birth control that I would actually use, of course.
Needless to say, after using the withdrawal method, here I am in the 2ww.
(my husband's record is as follows, accidental pregnancies due to withdrawal method - 2; time to conceive wanted pregnancy with charting and no withdrawal approx. 13 months and ended in miscarraige)
I am now officially obsessing over whether a) I am pregnant;
b) if I am, will it be a "keeeper".
I feel nauseous and burpy, (burping was my only early sign last time), but of course I've had many a cycle with vomiting and giant swollen breasts that was a bust. I guess I would really like to be able to trust my body that I know when I'm pregnant. I didn't think I was last time (I posted in the Nov 2ww thread how bummed I was that my timing was off). When my baby died, I didn't suspect a thing was wrong - I found out at a routine pre-natal visit. I *really* want to be right for once- to be in touch enough with my body to know that I'm pregnant again. Does that make sense?
