I'm back from my online break and I have a mixed blessing tale to tell.
This past cycle i started bleeding a few days late. I'm notorious for not poas-ing until I'm at least 5 days late. I didn't think much of being late other than the fact that Jake and I started accepting that I might have fertility issues and need intervention. Then my bleeding got very unusual. 8 days into the cycle I took a pregnancy test and it came up positive. I knew the minute I looked at it that this was a m/c, not a period. We followed up with a blood test and had below-viable levels for the time. A confirmed m/c.
However, I am not sad! (A little disappointed but not upset.) On the contrary, I am more hopeful and happy than I was before! After all this time I have proof that I can ovulate, be fertilized and implant! There are so many things that can go wrong in that series of events (as many of you know intimately) and none of those things are happening to me! I was so afraid that something very basic was going wrong that would cost more than we have to fix. If it could be fixed at all.
Now we just need to get to that sticky point!
Because my m/c was so early and caught almost by accident I've been cleared to start trying again right away. Since a m/c screws with normal timing we are planning to start early (this Saturday at CD12) and keep going until the temp rises (once we get the KD agreement!)
Good luck to everyone!
