The other day was indeed a very stressful one.
I had gone off birth control end of May to let my body start regulating itself. After my period was late I had decided to take a pregnancy test, which was negative. The other day I was overwhelmed by crippling cramps, and stabbing pains in my lower left abdomen. I was obviously aware that this was not the norm with my menstruation. I had started to spot earlier on that week without thinking it was anything serious, (just my body adjusting without b.c assistance). Concerned, I took a pregnancy test which then came out positive.
After going to the hospital and some blood work later they told me that it is possible that it is a miscarriage. They told me to come back in 48 hours to see if my hormone levels have gone down that would indicate the confirmation of miscarriage.
My question is.. has anyone have this happen, and have their pregnancy full term? If not, in your experience was it harder to conceive after? Also, how long were you comfortable waiting before trying again?
I also had an emergency c-section with my first baby. Will this affect my chances of having a VBAC?
