I had an ultrasound yesterday. So clearly a blighted ovum. I opted for the misoprostel to induce a miscarriage. I know that many of you wouldn't have chosen this, but I want the symptoms gone, I don't want to keep feeling pregnant if there is nothing there.... This is my 2nd blighted ovum, and I can't really process it yet. I'm numb.
Anyhow I'm debating taking time off from TTC just to really focus on me, TTC is a rough road for me. This time took 3 surgeries and lots of fertility drugs and so much money. (the money is moot, oddly, but the emotional hardship is so much more, and so much harder for me and my family)
I still want baby #3 and I hope a 4 and if I am really lucky a 5, but right now, recovery.
I wish you all wonderful pregnancies and magical births. Remember, you can always advocate for yourself. Don't stress over silly little things like what your MIL might say, or how your doctor is an idiot. It's your body, your birth. You can do it! (says the Mama who had a VBAC, despite many doctors telling her no, and then afterwards most of the nurses thinking Hudson was a vacuum assist because they say the V)
love you all!
So sorry to hear! Take some time to take care and heal yourself. Best wishes for the future.
