Bee - I agree it so awesome that you got such a clean bill of health after your ectopic! Hope your upcoming appointments/procedures go well!
ND - So sorry you're sick, but the time off is definitely needed! I just finally stopped spotting today now just a day shy of 2 weeks after taking misoprostol. It is a relief to be done with it.
My ultrasound went well today, good lining, great ovaries - such good news. Just sad that my ob wants me to wait until mid-March to start trying again. I was hoping we could at least ntnp this month, but she said to use protection until my next regular af.
Very good you've stopped. I'm hoping I don't have to take the shot for the exact reason. I know not to rush things cause ttc is anything but fast, but there are so many rules with that shot. I want to stay on my egg health regime, which is started back on on Monday.
Very glad your us went well. Are they still tracking your hcg?
Bee, good luck and come back and tell us all that happened. ... well if you want too
They never tested my hcg. The MMC was found on my 8 week ultrasound, I took the medicine that night bc I couldn't stand the thought of just waiting 1-2 weeks for it to happen and then possibly still needing the medicine or the d&c anyway (that would have delayed things even further), and then they just had me come back in today for a really thorough ultrasound to check everything out and make sure that everything cleared. I'll poas every week or so to make sure it's completely negative before we try again. A false positive would just break my heart at this point.
ND - what is going on now? did you start bleeding on your own or do they still want to schedule a d and c? thinking about you!
les - that is so great that they followed up with an US and that everything is looking great. Although I've been looked after a few different ways since the loss, I guess it's kind of strange that they never did do an US. Prob because I had and d and c on top of having my numbers blood tested out to zero, but they could have at least seen how everything was looking Hopefully this month goes fast for you. I had to take 3 months off and it felt like FOREVER.
I will def update on the HSG test! I have some time to go still.... I can't call and schedule until AF arrives. Really don't have any hope for this cycle anymore - not sure why. Maybe it is just because I'm looking forward to getting answers so much that that is where my focus is. My HSG follow up is scheduled already because it takes longer to get in there so that will be March 8. The HSG should be the week before!
Bee - I thought I remembered that you had to wait quite a while. I'm sure I'll look back and it will seem like nothing in the grand scheme. Just hard to swallow for now. A week before your follow up! Man, I was annoyed that I had to wait an hour between my ultrasound and my followup. So many waits, right? You never know this could be the cycle and then none of that will matter!
right?! sorry to say that it probably will feel like forever even though I hope it doesn't. I remember feeling wildly impatient even after a month in. I finally found some women with similar stories (other ectopics) and the advice they were given was 3 months OR 2 full cycles, which typically takes 3 months to go back to normal like that. But I was back on track immediately so we ended up doing the full 2 cycles which by the time I O'ed was almost the 3 months anyway, but we cut it a litttttttle short lol
everything becomes a waiting game. even plain old TTC. I think that's what I've hated about this journey the most - the constant wishing the time away. Rushing the 2 weeks until O time. Rushing the next 2 for testing time. then starting the whole cycle over again. And now a years gone by and I feel like I wished it all away. sigh. Can't wait til this all feels so far away because we are occupied with our pregnancies and babies....
It's funny that I'm now sitting here wishing for the predictability of ttc, when that whole time I just ached for a BFP. I even missed it a bit when the fear crept in while pg and waiting for my first scan. As hard as it was to see a bfn any month, the repetitive routine of it all became comforting. As much as I want it, I'm dreading the waves of fear that will come once I see those two beautiful lines again. I wonder if it'll be easier or harder. On one hand, I've been through it now and know I'll be ok. On the other hand, two losses in a row would be so hard. *sigh* guess there's only one way to find out.
Sorry I took the weekend off and just did nothing. Monday, another beta test another disappointment. Dr can't delay the d&c any longer, going in on Friday. Totally stressed and so is the hubby. More waiting....
You're so right Bee, so easy to get lost in the cycle of ttc and now the process of going through all this. Guys have it soooo easy.
Les, you're also right about the next bfp. When do we allow ourselves to even get excited about it?
aw thanks les lol you are so sweet to sneak that in there
nd - I had a d and c and would be happy to answer any questions you have! I know it's not ideal, but I thought it had it's pros and cons. I hemorrhaged and was taken into emergency surgery where a d and c was performed, so I had no time or knowledge to look into it prior. But I think I was glad in a way that I had one done because of the fear I then had of hemorrhaging again (I had a rare ectopic so don't worry about this happening to you!). I know that with a d and c, they really clean everything out so I felt better after my experience knowing that I wouldn't hemorrhage again. My aunt hemorrhaged after giving birth to her son because they had left some afterbirth in her. I guess any time there is anything left over in the uterus, the attempt to clean it out could end up in hemorrhaging so for me, that was the pro. They still traced by betas to zero afterward to make sure. please let me know if you have any questions! I'm sorry that it had to end up like that.
