Hey ladies, thank God for the new thread... I'm still in my favorite sofa (daytime bedrest). Hubby is watching soccer and therefore thats what i'm watching too. He has been great... He does most of the household chores. I really appreciate all the help I get from him. But I am still in bed and out of commission. Monday we have an ultrasound and we will be testing for downsyndrome... Hopefully we will be having a healthy baby. Have a great weekend ladies!

I really like that he does that !!! And wow...that means you really can be pg here very very soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi ladies, I was wondering if any of you could help me out. I miscarried in november, but never pa__sed all the tissue. In january I had a lot of pain one weekend and bleeding (after bleeding had stopped 2 weeks prior) I wound up with a D&C on Friday the 11th. I felt great after the D&C and dh & I had s_x on the 25th and 27th. Late Monday night (the 28th) I started having cramping and bloating. The cramping and bloating ended on Thursday, but since then I have had a dull ache in my lower abdomen. Has anyone ever experienced discomfort coming back around ovulation time after a D&C? I never had uncomfortable ovulations before this. Do you think there is something wrong? Thanks for your opinions.....this is my second miscarriage in a row and I really just want my body to get back to normal so we can try again.

Shab.....you are 12 weeks right......so what happens after the US.....will they let you off bedrest.....or will you have to stay on it. Speaking of housework....I have been so fatigued and so sick that I am soooo behind on it. I feel icky about my house, but I just can not muster up the energy to clean right now. Is that bad???

 

Shabnam - February 2

smmom, I have an appointment with my dr. on Feb11. We will see then... But considering my left leg goes numb, chances are i will be staying on bedrest throughout.... I still go to school and all, but i get tired and it's uncomfortable... but I cant postpone my cla__ses because of my scholarship... its 1 day a week so it's not so bad. But my guess is i will stay on bedrest.

 

smmom2 - February 2

Well....if you stay on...then it is probably best for you and little bean!!!! What is going on with your leg.....what is causing it to go numb???? How scary. Brayndi....I am sorry for your losses. We all know how hard it is...and that you can have a successful pg again. I have never had the cramping during o time....but I have had it alot during pg. Do you think maybe you could have becom pg again recently??? It could be something to like gas pains....constipation....or maybe your body is still just getting back to normal and was a little touchy. You should call your doc and ask if you have concerns. They should be able to tell you what is happening.

OMG>...>Shab..I have my appt on Feb 11 th as well...to funny. I will be 11 wks and a few days aloong at that time....so excited to know I am almost past the time when I lost Alyssa,,,,,,Then Iw ill feel much better.

 

Shabnam - February 2

Bryandi, sorry for your loss... I agree with smmom, you should speak to your healthcare provider. Smmom, my leg goes numb because my uterus puts pressure on my sciatic nerve on the left side. I also get it when i get af the first day but its not this bad... I can get up and do stuff but i can't stay standing for long. Sitting is ok. It's funny tho cuz baby is on the right side. Altho sometimes i catch a hb at 120-125 on my doppler and I know my baby's heart is beating around 160-167... who knows maybe there are two...

Hey girls and thanks to Sarah9 for starting a new thread, i hope this one will bring as much good news! Sarah - it does sound good that your obgyn is taking such care to get you back up and running. You must appreciate having him, i would. You may be joining us again next month then with a bfp!! That would be great! Shabnam - im envious of your bedrest in a way because at least you get to just chill for a while and not be so stressed. On the other hand i had 8 wks of bed rest with my last one and it was really boring at times. Double edged sword eh!! Smmom - you must be so sick of the sick if you know what i mean? Vomiting everyday cant be fun.I havent experienced it yet and im not sure i want to. Well half of me does because iv read that those girls who get sickness rarely miscarry. So im hoping its a positive thing for you! Even tho its horrid. Bryandi - welcome to this thread! You remember me from pregnancy after miscarriage - also clauds is here too. This thread moves faster than the other one so its good. I know your having these pains - i would say that they could be either normal ones you get after a d/c (i had them for about 3wks after, and also had 2 nasty afs) or it could be your af coming early and it will probably be a painfull one, or as someone else said - that you might be pregnant again! I allways get cramps and bloating, its one of my first signs. It would be nice eh? Which one do you think it is?? So girls im feeling a bit swollen and bloated this morning and now im tired. But happy!! I agree smmom and sarah9, that it would be better to go back to the uk, the problem is, i dont know exactly how long its going to take dh to be able to come over and join me. It might be that they delay it 6 months or more...in which case il be faced with having the baby alone and dh wont even be able to be there for me to have the baby. You can imagine the predicament. We are hopefull that this wont happen, as weve been told his chances are good. But - we dont know for certain. Thats why i think il wait until im 12 weeks before i think about going back. Plus the long flight home and lugging suitcases on my own isnt a good idea right now. So i guess im stuck here for the next few months at least!! x x x

 

Shabnam - February 2

Hey MissP, i know what you mean about long trips on planes... we want to go to iran for the iranian new years to be with my inlaws and I still have to see what the dr will say about that... It's a 24 hour trip and I am not quite sure I like the idea. As for my bedrest... trust me i would rather be working... I work for myself so there's no income on bedrest... That alone is VERY VERY stressful! Bryandi, I have a feeling you might be pg, but i could be wrong.

 

smmom2 - February 2

MissP.....I can not even imagine being stuck in another country...and pregnant with no good health care!!!! I dont understand why they wont let DH leave if he is not even a citizen there. Well.....I guess do what you can to stay healthy. Shab......It sounds like you are catching your own HB...Babies at this stage are usually much higher...like 150-170's. It is very possible to get your own on the doppler....I guess you will find out for sure on the 11th!!!! Everyone in my family kept telling me I was having twins(they run inmy fam big time) and I KNOW now that ther eis only one little baby in there. MissP..... I for got........the sickness thing is a myth.....................I was sick as a dog with my little Alyssa.....in bed type sick...I am not trying to scare you....just letting you know, I thought I was safe with my last one. And I am even more sick with this one if that is possible..... ok well I am off to bed ladies...hope you are having a good Saturday.

Hi smmom2 - i cant believe you had all that sickness last time. Its just weird. Maybe its just different with every girl. Im anxious to get my quantative test done so i can see if everything is progressing normally in there - before i start getting really attached if you understand me. Its just if im going to loose this one i dont want the shock i had last time, i want to be prepared. Not that i think it will happen, i feel positive about this one! Im just being prepared. Isnt it awful - like you said before the innocence is gone. Anyway, i feel terrible this morning and last night i hardly slept so i look awful too haha! Shabnam - wow iran eh? That is a long way for you. Its not so far from the uk tho. When do you need to go? I guess youll be into your 2nd trimester by then so things will be safer? And i just wondered if youd ever tried reflexology for your sciatica? Its safe during pregnancy normally. Its just i am qualified and i know sometimes it helps relieve the pain a little? Worth considering anyway. Ladies, my dh is from haiti and he has a visa to live in DR(and he can get one to go to the states or canada easliy) but we are waiting to find out if the visa to the uk is possible.Weve now been waiting a year. Its a long difficult process, and its v expensive. It just annoys me that illegals get in all the time and half the time get to stay, but if you do it legally they can take as long as they want and charge you as much as they want. How is it fair? Anyway, dont get me started!!! The dh really dosnt want me to have the baby here and says he would rather i went home where things a bit safer for me health wise - but i dont want to leave him until i know he an definitly come. Imagine if i left and then they refuse him - it could be more than a year until i had the baby and could come back to see him. That would be awful. Anyway, thats why im hanging on just a few months longer. I think i can safely fly up to 26wks more or less, right? x x x

 

MissP - February 3

Oh and i forgot to celebrate being 5weeks today!!! Well at least i think i am!!! Woohoo! Mrs hath and Jstaley - arnt you testing soon? Any signs? Clauds, where have you gone my dear?How is your little bean? Larsoe and les1les - its been a while? I bet you havent found the new thread yet, thats the problem. Bryandi - did you get our comments? Whats happening with you? Come on girls, its gone very quiet!! x x x

 

Bryandi - February 3

Hello ladies, I forgot to bookmark this thread after I posted and couldn't remember which one it was.... I found you all now. Thanks for all of your comments. Shabnam, I don't know what to think, sometimes I think AF is coming and others I think maybe I got preg, only time will tell. BUT I am a little nervous about the achey feeling that is still there in the background. I only feel it after I have been sitting for a long time on a hard chair (not a couch or something cushy) or if I am playing with the kids and move funny. Smmom, I have my follow up appointment with my OB this Friday and will be sure to check with her. I also have my first appointment with an endocrinologist on Wednesday, so I am going to see if maybe my thyroid problems had a hand in the past 2 miscarriages. MissP, I did notice you and Clauds were on this post as well after I had posted. that is great! I didn't mention the discomfort on the other post because I wasn't sure how many people on there were natural miscarriages or D&C and this thread seemed specifically toward D&C. Since my first miscarriage was natural I didn't know if it was normal to feel achey after a D&C (keeping in mind that I felt great no pains or anything until I started having the cramping/bloating). Well I am hoping that my body counted the day of my D&C to be day one, in which case I should know what is up one way or another by this coming Friday. Either AF will knock on my door, or BFP....But knowing my luck I will be in this awful state of not knowing for even longer than that. Soo if you ladies don't mind updating as I am new...could you tell me how far along you are and a little bit about your stories? This is a much quicker moving thread and I think I will stay if that is ok.
