First Pregnancy Ends Up In A Miscarriage

Keera - October 26

Hello, Ladies I have been visiting this site for the past two months now because my husband and I were planning to have a baby. Well about a month ago now I went in for a blood test and never got a call back on the results of me being pregnant or not. Since I live in Houston and this was during Hurricane Rita I gave the Dr. office some time but still no call. Then I called them and they said we will call you at work. I was out of the office at work when I get back i had a messsage on my voicemail that yes you are in the early stages of pregnancy please come in tommorow morning for another blood test. I already had a bad feeling because two days before I found this out I thought I had my period but with me being pregnant I was afraid of it and it was indeed a natural m/c. After the second test there was no HCG hormone so I had my m/c like I had figured. This was my first pregnancy and I was happy but at the same time worried since the bleeding would not be normal if i was pregnant and it surley was not since it ended up in a m/c. I just had to gather enough courage to write all this down because my next appointment with the OB is in two weeks just for some questions on where do i go from here? how soon i can concieve again? will this continue? why it happened? I am a very healthy individual and I never had any health issues.. so i really do not understand. My husband an I continue to try still.... and I am jsut confused about the whole menstrul cycle changing and the ovulation dates as well. How does that work after a miscarriage and when i calculate from the date of my m/c do I count from the first day I start bleeding or the last day. I am very confused and depressed but I find a lot of support and determinism when I come here. I just wanted to share this and I would like to continue to hear your stories and share mines.

Hi Keera, I am so so sorry for your m/c, how devastating. A couple of things I want to mention - it is not unusual for a normal, healthy person such as yourself, to suffer a miscarriage. They are so common (about 1 in 5 pregnancies end in miscarriage, some statistics say as many as 1 in 4) and oftentimes they are due to a completely random chromosomal problem that occured as the egg was being fertilized, and which would have prevented the baby from surviving outside of the womb. I know that just to hear it is common does not erase the sadness. It is still so hearbreaking. But please be rea__sured that you have a very good chance at having a completely healthy pregnancy next time, as many women who have miscarriages go on to have perfectly healthy pregnancies. Many doctors suggest waiting at least one cycle before trying to conceive again, to give your body a chance to recover and rest. You should discuss that with your doctor and come up with a plan that feels best for you and your hubby. In terms of calculating the date of m/c and how it relates to your cycle, a normal period should resume within 4-6 weeks, starting from when your miscarriage bleeding began. If it still has not come after that time, it would be a good idea to speak with your doctor to make sure everything has come out of your uterus like it's supposed to. I will just share with you that I also miscarried my first baby (I was 9 weeks along) in June, and I just found out that I'm pregnant again. Try not to worry to much about the future. It may take a little time, but your body will conceive again when it's ready. I wish you all the best in future attempts!

Thank you so much for your support and advice Kim. Yes I am pretty determined and confident that I will concieve again and I will have a healthy pregnancy... but it does scare you after you have had a m/c you know. But I wish u the best of luck with this pregnancy and God will bless you with a beautiful baby. I will keep you in my prayers. Thanks again and Keep in touch through this message board.
