Good luck MrsD, hope your 2ww passes quickly and you get your BFP!!

I am jealous empty, I wish we were ready to try again!!

Hope your weekend in Canada was nice Karoolia! Ugh, that must be a huge culture shock (so to speak) to get billed for your d&c! Mine was stressful because I had to go in as an "add on" meaning it wasn't guaranteed that I'd even get the d&c that day (even after waiting several hours) and they kept going around and sending people home...but thankfully they fit me in. I told DH the only consolation was at least we wouldn't be getting a bill, I can't imagine!

Yeah if we'd had to pay for the testing I wouldn't have done it either. I'm sure you'll get your rainbow next Karoolia, even though I just had two back to back losses it really isn't the norm and is probably because of my age. (I'll be 37 in two days). After my first loss we waited one cycle and then got pregnant with DS right away.

Kind of a rough weekend around here, first DS got a double ear infection, and then he turned out to be allergic to his antibiotic and broke out in hives.

Oh good luck in the tww!! It will flyby!
I'm still retesting positive although today's test was slightly lighter than yesterday's so it's going in the right direction but it's dragging and I'm getting inpatient. Still bleeding a little , are you still bleeding karoolia?
Mine goes between pink watery to brown. Sorry tmi!!

Good luck MrsD!!! Fingers crossed for a bfp!
Have fun TTC emptybc!

Fit_mama I'm so sorry about your DS! Poor kid, that sounds just awful. So much to deal with at once. Thanks for your encouraging words. I love hearing about people who got bfps quickly. And yes, paying for health care is a huge culture shock.

Ricschick I hope your test turns negative soon. I know mine was still positive before I left for the weekend. I have heard of some people getting a negative right away and others who take weeks. I am over two weeks since d&c now so no bleeding, but I think I was really lucky in that respect. I only really bled the day of the procedure then just had a few days of minor spotting after that. Again though some people bleed for two weeks. It sounds like yours is coming to an end, that sounds like my spotting before it stopped. Hopefully you will be done with this part soon!

I can't wait to be done with this part!!! If having a mmc wasn't bad enough it all takes so bloody long!!
Got some more prenatal today, spent a bit more on what seems to be a better brand and I'm eating better trying to lose a bit of weight before I get pregnant again. X

Wow CEL, huge congrats!! I can understand why you would be feeling nervous. I'm sure I will be a nervous wreck when it (hopefully) happens again. I know this is silly advice because you already know it, but try to enjoy that bfp!! To be honest, I regret worrying so much before my miscarriage. It didn't change anything and I never really enjoyed the pregnancy because I felt so worried. I doubt I'll be able to follow my own advice, but I do hope to relax more next time around.

Did you just get your bfp? Have you contacted your doctor? Some will see you early to do an early scan after miscarriages. Might help to ease your mind, although even an early scan probably wouldn't be for a few more weeks.

My thoughts exactly. I tested again when I got home last night. Very light now, but still a definite line. I feel confident it is going down now though.

Over the weekend I convinced DH to try again so we did a bit of BDing. Now I'm partially worried I'll end up misreading my tests, but I think I'll just stop now knowing that they are almost negative and in a few weeks if it has increased I'll know it is a real bfp and if not then I'll just carry on and try in june as planned.

I think I ovulated over the weekend too. I know I can't rely on anything right now, but everything pointed to yes. So hopefully that means if nothing else I should hopefully get AF in the next 2 week and get back to normal.

Funny you should say that I was googling to see if you can ov when you still have hcg in your system and I've found a few ladies how have!! I've had some sharp stabbing pains in my right side so it made me think! How long has it been now since your d&c? My tests are quite light now too. I hope you are and you get a bfp!!!

Good luck ladyapril!!!

ricschick - today is day 19 since the D&C (counting the D&C day as day 1). Last week on Wednesday/Thursday I started noticing my cervical mucus getting watery (I had been pretty dry prior) so I bought some clear blue OPKs and tested on Thursday. It was a solid smiley face/very strong positive then on Friday and Saturday I had ewcm. I did another opk when we got home on Monday and it was a very clear negative. I also swear I had ovulation pain on Friday. I'm not getting my hopes up too much because I have read that having HCG in your system can mess up tests, but I am somewhat hopeful. I'd obviously love a bfp right away, but to be honest, I would also be pretty happy to know my cycle is on track so I can try with more certainty next month.
