Trying again after a 5 week miscarriage.
I am a mom of a 2 1/2 year old boy, Brayden. Last July we started to try for our second child, but after 5 months decided to take a break for the holidays. That happened to be the month that we conceived. So I guess it's true that when you are really trying, it doesn't always work your way.In January of this year I started bleeding and talked to my OB lady. She told me it's fine as long as it doesn't get to a period like flow with clots. Well, it did. I woke up one morning and something just told me to go to the ER. I woke my husband up crying, told him what I thought was happening and took myself to the ER. They did an external and internal ultrasound and didn't find anything. My hcg level was only at 9 and I was 5 weeks. I was told I'm having a threatened miscarriage. I went home and read up about it and thought my chances were good since 50% turn out to be just fine. My friend had one and delivered a baby. My other friend had one and she's about due. So I got my hopes up only to be disappointed when I had my follow up. My levels went down to 4, so they didn't need to do an ultrasound. I took it pretty good in the hospital and told them I didn't need any counseling. I was crying walking out of the hospital as I passed pregnant women and babies. I waited for my body to go through two cycles to begin trying again. Now I'm irregular, so I'm checking my CM to see if I'm ovualting or not.
