Miscarriage at 6 weeks

I just found out today, 6/2/10, that I miscarried. This was going to be my second child. I have a 15 month old little girl that we struggled to conceive. In order for me to get pregnant with her, I had to use Clomid. I got pregnant with her on our first month. At the time, my doctor suspected Polycistic Ovary Syndrome, but was not confirmed until I had my C section with her. We recently started trying again. This was my second round of clomid when we found out we were pregnant about a week and a half ago. My doctor told me that with my PCOS that I would have an increased risk of miscarriage, but thought since I had a little one that it wouldn't happen to me. On Monday, May 24, I started bleeding like my regular period. I had a blood test to confirm I was pregnant and then another blood test 2 days later to see if the numbers were increasing. They did. My doctor was still concerned with the bleeding, so he ordered another blood test for today. I received the call that my numbers dropped and that I had a miscarriage. I am still numb from the fact that I lost the baby. I feel like it is my fault and sit and wonder about what this one would have looked like, acted, etc. But then I look at my beautiful little 15 month old miracle and realize that things happen for a reason. I know that everything has a reason for happening, but it still sucks that this happens.

It can take a couple of cycles after a miscarriage for a woman’s body to start ovulating normally again. Did you have curette after the miscarriage or did you not need one? You may want to check the http://pregnancyhours.com site for information on trying to conceive after miscarriage, there’s lots of very useful information like how to boost your chances of getting pregnant, what you should and shouldn't do, what kind of food that actually boost your fertility, and so much more.

Hey Meaghan, I'm sorry to read about your loss, but let me assure you it's not your fault. It's only natural to wonder about what about what he/she would have looked like, etc, so don't stop doing this.

You'll never forget your angel baby, but time is a great healer, and there will come a time, when you can think about your loss without crying. Talk to family and friends about how you're feeling. Talk to your partner too and try to grieve together, and this may help both of you.

Take time out to grieve for your little one. Sometimes it helps to maybe light a candle of rememberance, or plant a flower / tree in their memory.

Gentle hugs
