No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I read your post and had to join up to reply, only to discover that i too could benifit from a website like this.
My son Rhett is now eight weeks old, i was diagnosed with PCOS in 2004 and never thought i could have kids and so never hoped for them. about a year and a half ago i discovered i was in love with a long term friend of mine and we became pregnant about a month later. I was so amazed that i was able to get pregus, so were the Dr.s and we changed so much of our lives to get ready for the baby. i had one ultrasound at eight weeks and saw a fluttering heartbeat, but at the twelve week mark there was just what looked like an egg yolk, there was not even much of a fetus to see. It was so devistating! there was so little support from the health system here for me and afterwards there were so many women saying that they too had had a loss. I managed to get myself through it but every time i got my period after i could feel a sense of disappointment on mine and my partners faces. it was about six months later tho that i found out i was pregnant again. We were both very excited but nervous too, there was a little bleeding at eleven weeks which terrified me but i drew the strength from somewhere and it turned out ok. weended up having to have a caesarian at 41 weeks exactly as he was over five kilos, 11p2 and i didn't want to risk hurting him with a natural birth, in any case i think he was pretty comfortable coz he wasn't going anywhere lol we tried lots of home remedies to bring him on. I guess what i am saying is that it is scary after a miscarriage but it can be done. I like to believe that if it is menat to be it will happen. I know it is hard for so many women and their partners too, and i sometimes think about the sibling Rhett could have had buti look forward to trying again next time, it really is our choices to be the healthiest person we can for our children and sometimes that is still not yet enough. life is an interesting journey, good luck in getting pregus again :)
