...normally I wouldn't come back in this forum and post (sometimes it feels like people are bragging a bit when they do!) but I spent so long in here before I got pregnant that I wanted to share this with people who are TTC right now. In March 2012 I had a miscarriage at 9w3d pregnant and I was desperate to get pregnant again before my due date. I didn't.
I passed all of the crappy dates that I was dreading, my due date, the day I got my BFP (Valentine's Day) and the one year anniversary of my miscarriage. I was really quite depressed. Every month was the same, hoping and praying that this would be the month that I would get my BFP.
I just hit the third trimester in what has so far been a successful pregnancy (absolutely textbook) and I won't lie, it's scary getting pregnant again after a miscarriage. I spent one lonely day at PAX (video game convention) when I was almost seven weeks avoiding the toilet all day because I was convinced I was having a miscarriage and I didn't want to go and see the blood that I knew would be there. I wasn't miscarrying and there was no blood, I wish I'd just checked but I was so scared of what I would see that all day long I was on the verge of tears because of it.
But anyway, what I really wanted to share with you all was the picture below. I posted this to a group on Facebook two days before getting my BFP. Never lose hope, it will happen and it will be when you least expect it.
